Perfect Mindlessness: Angry Democrats

US President Obama impersonates Grumpy Cat at Democratic National Committee's Women's Leadership Forum's conference in Washington

I always knew I was a grumpy guy; now I’m a grumpy old guy. But after being on Facebook for the last few weeks, I have come to realize that compared to more than half of the country, I have the temperament of a zen master who has achieved perfect “mindfulness.”

The Democratic masses are in dire need of anger management treatment. They claim to see Trump as Hitler and even worse (who could be worse than Hitler? Answer: Trump.). According to these people, an Orwellian regime has descended on America, and they employ every profanity imaginable to attack Big Brother and especially anyone with the chutzpah to disagree.

The members of the “I Feel Your Pain” Party are so angry that they cannot see their own obvious hypocrisy. An incredible example is a photo of Trump’s wife, probably dredged up from the subterranean depths of the internet, wearing a Santa Claus hat and a come hither expression on her face.. The caption in large letters reads “White House Whore.” Why, I ask myself, can’t they see how revolting that is? I wouldn’t be surprised if some bottom dweller has produced a photoshopped video of Trump’s wife strolling down 42nd Street during the 1970s dressed in “hot pants” and 12 inch high heels

Needless to say, what if the Republicans, who “summer” on Pluto,  produced a photo of  Kirsten Gillibrand in a similar pose with the caption “Senate Whore”? The Democratic Party Women’s Movement would go postal. Do you remember the outcry over the comments about Michelle Obama’s muscular shoulders? I really believe that a politician’s wife and children should not be fair game. Trump’s wife has kept a very low profile; she has performed a number charitable acts since becoming First Lady and  insists that the media be kept out of it. On the other hand, Obama’s wife engaged in controversial politics during her tenure and so was fair game for respectful rebuttal.

As of yet, I haven’t heard any Democratic feminist leaders like Kirsten Gillibrand or Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton, or even Al Franken say a word about the White House Whore photo, and I assume that it must be all over the internet.  I wouldn’t wait too long for the New York Times to press them on that.

At the same time there are a number of things to be happy about : a strong economy, a record breaking stock market, and more than full employment. What’s not to like? You may disagree with Trump’s more hardline foreign policy, but he is the only President in recent years who recognizes that the kinder, gentler approach has been tried over and over again without success. The Democrats are predicting that the new tax reform bill will make a lot of underserving rich people even more rich while the rest of us are huddling on subway grates in the snow. But as John Kenneth Galbraith once said, “The purpose of economic forecasts is to make astrology look respectable.”

Given the Democratic Party media’s over-the-top campaign against Trump, it is not unlikely that they will win back the Congress and then move immediately to impeachment and removal from office. Today’s Democrats are like Islamists: they never ever concede that they lost.
