Joe Wilson

Joe Wilson

Liberals are at it again. They want you to be mad. Mad. MAD!!! Know why? Cause if you’re mad, then you’re not thinking. And the last thing liberals want you to do at this point is think.

They’ve certainly gotten a lot of mileage from this particular shtick, but I can’t say I blame them for digging in this well again.

It works.

I mean, why worry about the fact that your country is about to spend $790 billion when there’s a political cartoon to fume over? $80 million for an ice cutting boat? Did it stimulate the economy? Who has time to care or even notice? We were too mad over the chimp cartoon.

This time around it’s Joe Wilson’s heckling the president; calling him a liar during his monologue last night. (I emphasize the word “monologue” because in spite of the president’s words, the last thing he’s done concerning healthcare is engage in an actual dialog, which involves two people by the way, Mr. President. But I digress).

Wilson’s interruption was out of line, no question. We should have respect for the Office of the President of the United States even when the person holding that office doesn’t have respect for it. When the president is speaking to Congress, we must show courtesy to him or her, even when we don’t agree with the content of the speech.

Having said that, it is interesting that even with the media talking about this incident ad nauseum today, none of them has asked the one question which seems most relevant. Was Wilson right? Was he telling the truth? Is the president a liar. Specifically, is he lying about the details of his healthcare reform plans. Several independent experts think so. Most Americans think so. Fact is, most of us don’t buy the idea that this massive bill is going to cost the middle class nothing and not add a cent to the deficit. Hey B, how ’bout some details on how that works. I’d love to hear about it.

But no, the media hasn’t seen fit to address that particular idea. Truth? Not really a liberal value.

But that’s not the only thing the media has ignored today. Apparently, our friends at ACORN are making good use of our tax dollars again. They are evidently willing to help pimps set up prostitution houses for under aged, illegal immigrants. I would imagine that most folks might find it interesting that their hard-earned money is being used to sex-traffic minors, but clearly I don’t know what’s newsworthy.

It’s much more important that you be distracted, um, informed about those evil conservatives. We’ll just sweep Van Jones and ACORN under the rug.

Besides, you should be so mad at Joe Wilson that you won’t even notice these other little stories (or the money missing from your pocketbook).

Welcome Communism.

Goodbye free press.
