Just two relatively short items for this fleeting re-connection with the blog:
HYPOCRISY DEPARTMENT, item #1
Kellyanne Conway has drawn the ire of the Left for –daring– to place her knees on one of two facing sofas (or is it a couch? A Davenport?) in the Oval Office. The first picture shown below is another beautiful example of cherry-picking available images to highlight something completely out of context to make one’s point (the Reds and the Blues are equally guilty of these transgressions), but the hypocrisy of The Left just smells so much worse.
But WHY was she doing that, is she just uncouth, overtly over-casual, ashamed of her shoes or a bad pedi? No, turns out she was going to take a phone photo and needed an angle she could only get from the couch, which she would NOT dirty by wearing shoes or taking some squatting (very unladylike, by the way, very unladylike) position in the center of the area. Good for you Kellyanne, respect the upholstery, UPHOLSTERY MATTERS!
We should be less offended by some lady’s knees on the couch in the Oval Office with a large gathering of men and women in the Trump administration, than by some unnamed lady’s knees on the carpet under the desk in the Oval Office in some unnamed Bubba’s administration, don’t you think?
HYPOCRISY DEPARTMENT, item #2
Trump: “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally…”
Investigative Journalists from Reuters and other LSM: “Proof! We want PROOF!! You LIE!!!”
The Left: TRUMP GOT THE RUSSIANS TO HACK THE ELECTION TO HELP HIM DEFEAT HER HIGHNESS, HILLARY THE GREAT!”
Investigative Journalists from Reuters and other LSM:: [crickets] [lots of crickets]
HYPOCRISY DEPARTMENT, item #3
The Left: “Asking for voter ID or demanding photo ID before being allowed to vote is UN-AMERICAN, UN-DEMOCRATIC (get it?), DISCRIMINATORY, you should be ASHAMED!
News item (Washington Free Beacon, 2/27/17):
The Democratic National Committee used paper ballots Saturday while electing its new chair to verify that each vote was legitimate, despite the Democratic Party’s adamant opposition to voter ID laws.
Prior to the vote, Donna Brazile, who was still interim DNC chair at the time, told the committee in Atlanta on Saturday that the DNC would use paper ballots instead of electronic “clickers,” as original intended, to “verify every name and signature.”
“Pursuant to the rules of procedure, the chair has the discretion as to the voting mechanism,” Brazile said. “It is my determination, based on the system that we tested this morning, that I would like to use paper ballots. And I’ll tell you why.”
“We have to make sure that we can not just count the ballots but verify every name and signature,” Brazile told Democratic Party members, receiving applause.”And I want to make sure that at the conclusion of all of our votes, that you, the members of this party, will be able to review those ballots.”
Brazile’s step to ensure that ballots could be verified appeared to be an attempt to ensure only registered members of the DNC cast votes in the election.
COMMENT FROM THE WAVE: No comment necessary.
We feel better now, back to work.
