Political Theater!

It dawned on me this morning that I’m qualified to be a contributor on any of the Cable News Networks.

I have some credentials… while meager, apparently that doesn’t matter.

What matters is that I use certain phrases that may be true but are completely meaningless… and that I use them over and over and over.

So there I was, watching Juan Williams, of Fox News Fame, describe the VA Scandal as “Political Theater”. The point he was trying to make, the point he is always trying to make, the reason Fox writes him a check… is that any investigation into anything, ever, which originates from Anyone Opposing Democratic Socialists in our Government and Their Schemes is… “Political Theater”.

The brilliance is Juan, et al., have used this ad nauseam and remained employed.

While Juan’s phrase “Political Theater” is simple, and apparently powerful (they are paying him to do it) it lacks a directness. In fact, it is so vague as to be void of substance.

ALL activity in Government is Political Theater.

Every Word spoken, every Action taken. The phrase is Omni-Applicable… thus meaningless.

And yet, Mr. Williams gets a check.

So I’m going to try it out;

The VA Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The IRS Targeting Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The NSA Domestic Spying Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Benghazi Murder Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Fast and Furious Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The You Didn’t Build That and Spread the Wealth Around outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Socialist Nationalization of General Motors Outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to Repeal the Socialization of Medicine through Obama Care… “Political Theater!”
The Outrage over Killing of American Citizens with Drones… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to make America Energy Independent by the “Right”… “Political Theater!”

Bill Clinton Lying under Oath… “Political Theater!”
The Cold War… “Political Theater!”
World War II… “Political Theater!”
World War I… “Political Theater!”
The Civil War… “Political Theater!”

My Wife think’s I drink too much… “Political Theater!”

Fun huh?  I think I’m pretty good at this!

Please send checks directly to me.. I will also accept anything Fit for Human consumption with an alcohol content greater than 5%.

    […] it? Wake up, smell the fecal stench and defend ourselves while we still can, or be comforted by non-substantive political theater and rephrasings of President Obama’s lies as we are […]

    There is an alien mother ship that drives around in the morning like an ice cream truck, handing out talking points and the catch phrase of the day. The goal is not to inform people of course, the goal is to reinforce the message with a carefully designed advertising jingle that triggers everyone emotionally.

      You’re obviously a Crazy Right-Wingnut Teabagger who can’t come to terms with the Fact the Democrats have Won Every Argument. All of them!

      You’re probably the Reason we have all this Political Theater!

      And, everyone knows the Alien Mother Ship FLIES… not drives.

      Duh!

      You Gun Clingers are SOooooOooOOoooo Dumb.

      I don’t have time for this! I have to get back to being Smarter than You.

      (Seriously, I think I could do this for a living. At a minimum I could work at MSNBC.)

    They cannot win arguing their pathetic positions so they HAVE to deflect the argument.

    “so wait a second, you actually sent guns to the Cartel?”
    “so wait a second, you actually let Americans die to help win an election and then lied to us about it?”
    “so wait a second, you actually want hundreds of millions of Americans to pay way more for their health insurance to help just a few?”

    Huh?
