An adult speaks to the Junior High Show Offs

04 Aug
Vote Fer Me! I’m Tuff on Stuff

The desperate party and it’s candidate show-offs are up on the stage doing the see-how-great-I-am shuffle?

I seriously doubt that the congressional de-funders actually took a poll in their home states and districts to see if their constituents really want them to defund Planned Parenthood.

But why let such a necessary check-with-your-voters procedure stop them? Even if their own constituents  aren’t being loud and stoopid enough in supporting them, they must assume that everyone else’s constituencies do … and that makes it a broad public sentiment to defund.

Right?

Well, consider the fruits of these pretend we-think-this-is-the-most-important-thing-to-do-right-now crowd.

These are strictly junior high school antics and maneuvers.

Won’t someone – an adult preferably – explain the facts of life to them.

Well, one very smart, thoughtful and capable adult lady did.

Now if they can just find someone smart in their own crowd to interpret what she said that may have been to deep or complicated …

Did you fall down, hit your head and think you woke up in the 1950’s or 1890’s?

Elizabeth Warren:

“I come to the Senate floor today to ask my Republican colleagues a question, Do you have any idea what year it is? Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950s? Or the 1890s? Should we call for a doctor?”

“Because I simply cannot believe that in the year 2015, the United States Senate would be spending its time trying to defund women’s healthcare centers.

And her very complicated declaration (from someone among their own body who knows),

“Just to be clear,” Warren continued, “even though the abortions performed at Planned Parenthood are safe and legal, the federal government is not paying for any of thm. Not — one — dime.”

Now, can’t this party of kindergarten konservativism and reactionary religion just start spending time on things worthwhile to the whole nation … at least once in this decade?

Now I think I understand the look on Lincoln's face from the high monument chair.
