Political Musical Chairs

214 Musical Chairs

What’s going on here? Spitzer is the new D’Amato, D’Amato is the new Javits. Giuliani is the new Pat Robertson. Gingrich is the new Clinton. Clinton is the new Carter. Carter is the new Nasser.

The governor of New York is busy bashing his enemies in a way that would have made the Al D’Amato of the first Senate campaign proud and envious. Meantime, D’Amato, arch conservative and hail fellow well met sounds more like Javits of that same campaign when he speaks of the 2008 presidential election and most other public issues, and in private is even mellower, and more of a hail fellow well met. This is what happens when you step out of the frying pan and into the money.

Some of us think Al would like to be president, but doesn’t want to take the pay cut.

Pat would like to be President, too. But Giuliani is upstaging him, trying to be more of a conservative Christian than anyone who still at least nominally is a member of the Church of Rome.

Gingrich was busy leading the charge against Bill Clinton while at the same time “slipping around” as the country people say on his wife, which ever of his wives that was. Now, he says there’s a difference. He is saying “Oh, I misled God,” or somesuch thing, but “...I didn’t perjure myself.” Oh.

Carter, probably the worst Pre-Bush II President since Hoover, became a shining example of statesmanship and accomplishment as an ex president. Democrat Clinton, who was the best Republican president since Theodore Roosevelt, has taken on Carter’s stature in his own ex-presidency.

And Carter himself has become Egypt’s Nasser and blames all the troubles in the Middle East on the Jews.

First of all, let’s give a nice yiddisher welcome to Jimmy, who joins the ranks of some of history’s notorious do-badders But Mr. Carter, whom we know does not drink his brother’s beer, is only an amateur. Jimmy: don’t forget about the Jews drinking the blood of Christian children on whatever holiday that’s supposed to happen on. And don’t forget about the world financial crisis, global warming, homelessness, and the liberal media, the oil crisis, bird flu and the crack epidemic, political correctness, all the fault of (“some of my best friends are…) Jewish conspirators.

Meantime, Mayor Bloomberg (well known for being a Jewish Conspirator) is gunning for a seat on this commission. He went to Florida on a private jet and cracked jokes with the mayor of Miami, while the paper shufflers he left behind tried to figure out what caused a fire in the Bronx that killed almost a dozen people. On his return to New York a day or so later, he met with relatives of the victims. Still, Mike is not the new Fiorello.

Well, it’s nice to know that not EVERYONE’s playing musical chairs.

But where is the New Nixon when you really need him?

I'm Wes Richards, my opinions are my own, but you're welcome to them.
