Squaring the Culture

"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

Morning Snorts

A handful of culturally relevant shorties from this morning’s browsing.

* * *

From the Wall Street Journal:

As long as George W. Bush and Dick Cheney were responsible for keeping Americans safe, Democrats could pander to the U.S. and European left’s anti-antiterror views at little political cost. But now that they are responsible, American voters are able to see what the left really has in mind, and they are saying loud and clear that they prefer the Cheney method.

Yeah, I thought that might happen when the children took over. The Obamanites are gradually learning that what they assaulted as “evil” during the Bush years is actually the moral, well-considered, and correct policy… but they’re so badly caught in their own rhetoric that they can’t publicly do what makes sense.

From Mary Katherine Ham at the Weekly Standard:

Gibbs … scribbling notes on his palm today, featuring “eggs, milk, bread, hope and change.”

This would have been funny if Sarah Palin hadn’t already made the joke, and better, herself… [N]ow the Left is forced to write about how totally lame Palin’s joke was while simultaneously praising Gibbs’ truly lame copy of it. That’s gonna be some tough blog-writing, but I believe in them.

From humorless, enviro-fascist writer David Roberts who, incredibly, didn’t get the Audi “Green Police” ad at first:

The ad only makes sense if it’s aimed at people who acknowledge the moral authority of the green police…

“Acknowledge.” Heh. Toldja that’s exactly what they plan to do…

Sen. Chuckie Schumer (D, some other universe), responding to the report showing that 80% of the roughly 6000 jobs created by US wind turbine orders from TARP funds went to overseas firms:

“This is one of those stories in Washington that when you tell people five miles outside the Beltway, or anywhere else in America, they cannot believe it,” Schumer told ABC News, “It makes people lose faith in government, and it frankly infuriates me.”

Uh… no. This is what people five miles outside the Beltway, and everywhere else in America, were saying all along was going to happen. What we can’t believe is that a senior Senator is so completely freakin’ clueless about economics that he’s surprised.

What Sen. Ted Kennedy did for the reputation of the voters of Massachusetts for decades, Chuckie Schumer does for New York. With the election of Scott Brown, Massachusetts (partially) redeemed itself. Is it possible that NY will do the same?

I doubt it. The NY GOP is in permanent fetal position and AFAIK, doesn’t intend to challenge Chuckie.

So was the MA GOP. You just never know what’s gonna happen…
