One-Trick Ponies Donkeys « Politics As Usual »

From the latest flash from Drudge:

According to CNN, some of President Bush's missing records from his time in the Air National Guard were found today. The payroll records that were discovered were initially reported destroyed. In response, Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Terry McAuliffe issued the following statement:

"The supposed discovery of these records on Friday afternoon, as reporters converge on Boston to cover the Democratic National Convention, is highly questionable. If the Bush Administration continues to search, maybe they'll find answers to the long list of unanswered questions that remain about George W. Bush's time in the Air National Guard. Bush's military records seem to show up as randomly as he did for duty."

Honestly, can they do anything except question the timing? This is getting to be a freaking joke! Honestly, the DNC is getting so bad and so predictable that satire can't even compete. And our non- liberal media is aiding and abetting this crap.

Mark this down, kiddies: "The timing is questionable" now has all the appropriateness, maturity, and impact of "I know you are, but what am I?", "Oh, yeah?", or "I'm made of rubber, you're made of glue..."

I was going to write about this tomorrow, but here you go, so, O.K., that'll do:

The Democrats have this ranting retort ridiculousness down to a science and it's called the: "yeah, but..." non response.

Whatever you provide, do, say, don't say, write, don't write, think, don't think, fund, don't fund, believe in, don't believe in, whatever, you can count on the liberal response of "Yeah, but..."

What about Clinton lying under oath?
==>> "Yeah, but it was only about a *******."

What about increasing taxes?
==> "Yeah, but you conservatives increased reduced taxes first."

What about...and so the meme goes.

It usually means, to my read, that they don't have a response, so they just resort to the "Yeah, but..." retort.

Bush's records, found, lost, found, parts misplaced, parts deleted, found, parts shredded, copies found...liberals retort, "Yeah, but..." and it will just go on forever from the LLL.

Why did -S- post that comment right then?

I agree. The timing of that comment just seems too deliberately chosen to draw questions away from the timing of Bush's denial that he carefully orchestrated the timing of the leak about Berger. Truly, the Democrats have a dizzying intellect...

McGehee posted exactly less than a full twelve hours after I posted the first. And then Nathan posted exactly approximately twenty four hours afterward. Doesn't that PROVE something?! I bet that there were something like a multiple of twice-the-first-time-frame and two-times-the-second-time-frame in shredded documents at the DNC alone! Imagine!

If I might point out, -S-'s most recent comment was timed to ensure that the numeral '4' occupied the terminal position in three distinct number groups in the timestamp. As any of Louis Farrakhan's followers know, 4 squared is 16, and when you add 3 (the number of number groups involved) you get 19.

We're dealing with a diabolical one here.

I see that McGehee has mastered the art of the Four Quatrain Umberto Ergo, or, in terms of two, that would be the Counter Numerical Operations of One.

After all, "12:31" actually means "2:15.2" if you are perceptive enough about two.

On the other hand, McGehee, you win. I was always a bit worn out around 12:31, at least, the P.M. version.

On the other hand -- note the later "time stamp" now applied here -- I do think that the Bush military records issue has been so twisted by the DNC as to be all out of proportions. Meaning, whatever exists will never be enough, whatever does not exist will always be necessary and no Democrat will ever understand what it is that actually proves much of anything other than that they can't stand the fact that Clinton was impeached, that Kerry isn't supported by the majority of Vietnam veterans and that they oppose the concept of belief in the United States. Or service. It's a shame that Democrats spend so much energy focused on issues that disprove their very premise of being: honor in the military, evidence of courage and service, accuracy of record keeping, truth and honor in office under oath...

And, because of their problems with those very same issues, they spend even more time fielding questions about their patriotism. Not that the questions are coming anywhere but from their own sub-conscious, but...

Posted by: Nathan at July 25, 2004 09:31 PM

Yeah, Nathan, I sure agree with that.
