Give it to me straight, Doc.
We Are Governed by People Who Suck
Who could possibly deny it? Or would? The most terrifying thought in the world is that this plague of a government might actually be the one we deserve.
Let’s face it: Joe Biden sucks.
Everything about him sucks. He sucks as a messenger, his economic policies suck, he completely sucks as a truth-teller. He sucks in the integrity department.
Not surprising. It’s almost impossible to excel at things one has absolutely no interest in whatsoever.
Joe Biden sucked before he became increasingly, cruelly incapacitated by the decline of his faculties. Thursday’s Potemkin sham of a press conference, in which pre-written questions and scripted answers replaced an honest dialogue with the American people over the state of our union, made that clear.
That press conference sucked. It wasn’t a press conference; it was a book report.
We shouldn’t have been forced to embrace Biden’s suck.
Biden’s family sucks for putting him, and us, through what’s going to obviously get much worse over time.
They’re all horrible, awful people—the very incarnation of a most repulsive breed, the American Professional Politician. This misbegotten sub-species is a grotesque evolutionary perversion, a line which should have been exterminated immediately after the first mutated form appeared. The Founders considered it an abomination, and firmly warned their posterity against ever allowing the ProPol monster to gain a foothold. We foolishly ignored their wise advice, sat idly back as the disgusting and dangerous breed flourished, and must now deal with the disastrous consequences.
Hm. Maybe this IS the government we deserve at that.
We’ve had presidents who have sucked before. But not since Woodrow Wilson had a stroke in office and finished his second presidential term as an invalid, mostly comatose, with his wife running the country as a proxy president, have we had a situation sucking as badly as this one clearly will.
What’s worse is even now, we really don’t know who’s running the country. It’s supposed to be the guy we elected. The president is supposed to be in charge.
Is Joe Biden in charge? He doesn’t even know what he’s doing here. He says it all the time.
That sucks. And the world is watching.
Where is the Democrat Party based? Our large cities, which it controls so completely they might as well no longer be seen as emblematic of a democratic republic.
Pick one, doesn’t matter which, and several things will undoubtedly be true: its infrastructure, business climate, public safety, quality of life, affordability, culture, and governmental ethics have declined in recent years; there has been no Republican administration of that city for a long time and there is no foreseeable prospect of one ever again; the middle class has decamped for the suburbs en masse as a reaction to policies promulgated by the ruling Democrat machine in a knowing and purposeful campaign to rid themselves of those people and their fickle voting habits; the public schools are criminally, abysmally deficient despite breathtaking amounts of money spent on them; the Democrat machine is openly racist in whatever direction benefits it most politically; and all of the circumstances and symptoms of the manifest decline of the place are somehow blamed on white Republicans who don’t live there.
Everyone runs from places they govern. When they govern cities, people leave for the suburbs. When they govern states, people leave for states they don’t govern.
When they govern Washington, D.C., there’s nowhere to run. And everything begins to suck.
It sucked for eight solid years of the Obama–Biden administration. Everybody knew it. The Democrats blamed it on George W. Bush. They weren’t completely wrong in that. But Obama told America to embrace the suck. He said there was no magic wand to bring back economic prosperity, at the same time he told the world America sucks, then proved it by starting and prolonging wars around the planet that were neither in America’s interest nor the interests of the people affected by them.
And the Democrats’ auxiliary suck-meisters in the media made it their livelihoods to explain the suck. Obama was a great president, they said, and if you don’t agree you’re a racist.
Or a deplorable.
For four years in the interregnum from the Obama–Biden suck-fest, Donald Trump told America it didn’t suck and that we had a right not to suck. And for a good chunk of those four years, we didn’t. Then came a Chinese virus and the needless and pointless loss of our liberties, livelihoods, and quality of life, most particularly in places Democrats govern, and everything sucked again.
Here’s the problem: at some point, you just can’t cover it up. At some point you just plain suck.
As I keep saying: looks more to me like they don’t care much about covering it up any longer. They obviously don’t think there’s any real need to. And so far, it appears they might be right about that.
It’s a funny article, on a topic that ain’t no laughing matter.
