Here at PD we’d love to spend our days bringing you beauty tips and time savers from around the world, and the latest on libertarian style, but our collective ulcers just won’t let us. There’s far too much propaganda in the air to focus solely on summer neon and poolside totes.
The perfect illustration of this is the latest from the new (and of course not improved) White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. Did you ever think you’d miss Jay Carney and his facial dander?
“I think that there have been a number of situations in which you’ve seen this administration intervene in a meaningful way, that has substantially furthered American interests and substantially improved the, uh, you know, the – the tranquility of the global community,” Josh Earnest mused in the press box on Monday (July 14th).
See if you can wipe the blood off your tablet screen for a second and let’s look at this substantial bit of bullshit logically.
On Earnest’s side, the media case of Obama being the Messiah 2.0 was sealed as Barack was presented with the Nobel Peace Prize days before he even took the office of President. Plus, after he was finally inaugurated in all of that pomp and circumstance, Brown was able to stick around, and didn’t the tides recede?
On the other hand, you have reality which includes the following not so tranquil places:
ISIS’s new Caliphate.
South China Sea.
The long kidnapping and machete wielding arm of Boko Haram.
Bodies of children floating in the Rio Grande.
Okay wait—this is gettin’ a little too Yakko Warner’s Nations of the World.
