John Boehner and Karl Rove: a Tinfoil Hat for Two
Karl Rove has cozied up next to John Boehner so they can share the same tinfoil hat. They're both insisting that Republicans have never ever said anything about impeaching President Obama; the whole thing is just a vicious rumor conjured up by Democrats for a fundraising gimmick.
Or maybe Tinfoil Hat isn't the right term, since that implies seeing and hearing things that aren't there. What do you call it when somebody flat-out refuses to see and hear something that's right there in front of him/her? Maybe this is why John Boehner keeps crawling to *** the bottom of a bottle of bargain Scotch *** — so he can drown out the voices of the Teatards.
***Name that tune***
Now — playing Devil's Advocate here — let's pretend that all the impeachment talk is just a rumor being spread by Democrats; that no Republican has ever uttered the I-word. (Come on, just play along for a minute.) Is it a smart strategy for Republicans to deny this rumor that they want to impeach Obama? When you frantically, incessantly deny a rumor — at the top of your lungs — you're digging yourself deeper into the hole you're trying to get out of. This has long been a staple of fiction and real life. “You can't prove Senator X is a child molester.” “We don't have to prove it. Make him deny it.”
So come on, Republicans one and all. Take to the airwaves, the rooftops, the Intertubes, and scream long and loud that you never said anything about impeaching President Obama. That word again is IMPEACHMENT. IMPEACH. Keep on saying that you never said it. Come on, keep at it. Louder.
And now — playing Devil's Advocate again — let's take the following test. If You Dare. Click on the two links below, and find out once and for all who's really wearing a tinfoil hat — Democrats or Republicans. The two linked articles are lists of Republicans who have been clamoring for years to impeach Obama. Now, if Republicans are telling the truth about never calling for Obama's impeachment, the two linked articles won't exist and you — you America-hating treehugger you — are the one wearing the tinfoil hat.
However, if the two linked articles really do exist...
