I realized, as soon as I started writing that his post has got the same point as a recent post called The Farewell to Kings didn't take. That's OK, it needs to be said again with this newest brouhaha about Old Joe Bidet slipping on the stairs on the way into Air Force 1.
Here's a headline I just saw while looking for another picture on this:
The news is all over the world. The Chinese are talking about it. (Outwardly mocking, but likely inwardly a little worried about their investment.) Hey, the reader should know that Peak Stupidity feels nothing weaker than deep distain for this President, A stumble is probably just a stumble though. I've done it, and Crazy Uncle Joe Bidet has quite a few years on me. True, it possibly shows that, yeah, he's an old man, and who knows how he really functions?
Go back 100 years, and only a few reporters would know, and likely not make a deal out of, the President stumbling like that. Well, there's TV and the internet now, so that's part of the problem here. Go back nearly 50 years, when everybody watched TV and you had Saturday Night Live with Chevy Chase imitating and exaggerating the goofing and bumbling of President Gerald Ford. It was in fun. I really don't think there was that much political to it. Also, nobody thought it as something to worry about. So what, he's a goofball (if that was even the case)? Is the problem now that any Blue-Squad President shall not be made fun of, so people spend hours analyzing a stumble instead.
Here's my point though: The bigger part of the problem with having to hear about the President stumbles for days, is that IT SHOULDN'T MATTER! There's a VP to take over (shudder). There's a Congress. This guy is not the freaking King!
All this reminds me of what one would hear about the Soviet Union back in the day. If Brezhnev coughed once, uh oh, what if he dies?! What kind of hell will we live in under the next guy?
Where is my beautiful Constitutional Republic? Where is that large automobile? How did we get here?
That Talking Heads song would be nice, but let's continue with the "Farewell to Kings" theme. Back in the post I'd thought we'd bid Farewell to Kings (on the 1/2-mast flag stupidity), we featured the title track of the 1977 Rush album A Farewell to Kings, and longer ago, when writing about Ayn Rand, we featured out favorite off the album, Closer to the Heart.
From the same great album here is Cinderella Man:
Yeah, we'll get on this Oriental massage parlor dealy next week. Enjoy the rest of the weekend PSers, and thank you very much for reading, and listening too!
