Darned If You Do, Darned If You Don’t

Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

Obama is sending more troops to Iraq. Ordinarily, I’d use a colorful expression to explain why that’s a dumb idea. Not this time.

If I said “not our circus, not our monkeys,” then Liberals would gibber that I’m comparing Africans to Apes, proving I’m racissss.

And if I said “we don’t have a dog in that fight,” Liberals would howl that dogs are offensive to Muslims, proving I’m an intolerant religious bigot.

If I said “There is no Constitutional authority to deploy US troops to a foreign land without a Congressional declaration of war,” Liberals would solemnly opine that disputing The First Black Constitutional Scholar proves my utter ignorance of law and history.

So I’ll just say “it’s a dumb idea” and let it go at that.

If progressivism built the economy like it builds rhetorical gotchas, this country would be humming along right now.

  1. Exactly right. Hopefully enough and the right people recently got elected to rein in this activity – but I doubt it. The machine will grind on.
    Happy Veterans’ Day, everybody.

  2. John “the Maverick” McCain seems to be salivating through his dentures to get our military personnel on the ground over there.

    I guess that should verify Mr. Doaks’ position without offending anyone not worthy of such offense …
