Satire doesn’t stand a chance

I don’t remember where I first saw that remark, but at a time like this it does seem too true to be funny.

Where does the fault lie for the present predicament? Give me a break — there’s more than enough blame to go around. Congressional Democrats and Barack Obama are the proximate cause, but for some that’s not enough.

Spineless Republican leaders contributed to the Democrats’ victories in 2006 and 2008, failing voters so spectacularly that many decided they had no choice but to punish the GOP — despite warnings the outcome would be even more punishing for the punishers.

George W. Bush? His defenders point out that the federal deficit didn’t really take off until after the 2006 elections, but he was one of those failed Republican leaders, what with his Amnesty-By-Any-Other-Name attempt, his Harriet Miers attempt, and his signature on McCain-Feingold.

And then there are the voters themselves — again, because they cut off their noses to spite their faces in ’06 and ’08 — but also because they let 9/11 and the Global War on Tara overshadow the fact Bush claimed to be a “compassionate” “conservative” but (leaving aside the war) the effect of his actions as President was neither.

All true. Unfortunately for the people harping on it this week, also pointless.

Ironically, the people so angry at the failures of the Stupid Party are failing to distinguish themselves from its stupidity.

There’s still a war on, and this one is taking place in our own capital. Unlike the wackos who protested the Iraq War, HWC does not support the troops when they shoot their officers.
