Out of all the catch-up reading I did over the long Union Labor Day weekend this piece was the best and made me chuckle.
Kevin D. Williamson of the National Review was making a comparison between Obama and Romney, looking at them through a primal, or as he calls it "tribal" lens as a means of discussing the fitness of leaders based on the sex of their progeny. If you aren't clear on the political leanings of National Review the comparison is telling enough. Obama: two daughters. Romney: 5 sons and a growing platoon of grandsons.
Kevin writes: "Romney . . . is basically a tribal chieftain.
"Professor Obama? Two daughters. May as well give the guy a cardigan. And fallopian tubes."
Like any good, pithy writing, I kept returning to it over the weekend, flipping it over in my mind. Then I realized, just as Clinton was the "First Black President", thus robbing Obama of that honor, Obama IS the First Woman President, thusly, returning the favor to the Clintons. Democrats can school you chapter and verse on how Obama robbed Hillary of that honor.
And it makes perfect sense. The Democrats are all about redefining things, like the very meaning of America thanks to the Progressive agenda, or words (i.e. the definition of the word "is" - thanks to professor Bill), or math (i.e. prosperity where $4000 decline in average annual household incomes is called growth or that more subtle calculus of "jobs created OR saved"). So why not redefine Race and Gender in a Progressive world where all things are fungible?
So now that we have looked at the historic nature of the Obama Presidency from all absurd angles isn't it time to move on?
