Hillary was recently criticizing Obama for HIS supposed foreign policy of “Don’t do stupid stuff”. Her comment supposedly caused a bit of a rift between their two camps. Of course, she now denies she didn’t mean it that way.
“Don’t do stupid stuff.”
That pretty much clarifies everything in my mind. It works well for foreign policy, dog grooming, junior high school math exams (do they still have those?), playing power forward, being Yasiel Puig of the Dodgers, taking naps while Benghazi is happening or not knowing what is going on as Secretary of State while Benghazi is happening. Obama and Hillary have come up with a Universal Maxim which would serve us all well if we were all to incorporate it into every aspect of our lives.
It would have made a much better title for her failing book. What were Simon and Mr. Schuster thinking? “Hard Choices?” Dull. Ambiguous. Makes us guess what was hard about her choices she was forced to face…particularly while four brave Americans were being tortured and murdered in Benghazi. But there is no need to beat that dead horse any further…or should I say “DEAD AMBASSADOR?” Anyway…”Don’t Do Stupid Stuff.” It has a ring, don’t you think?
Then there is the truly noteworthy news item of the death of Robin Williams. He was fun. Just when we need more of his fun, he abruptly leaves us. All of which is made sadder by his having done so by his own choice. Was the party that was his life, to which he invited us all, really that bad for him personally? How can he have possibly been so sad when he made us laugh so easily…and often? Fare well, Dear Prince of Laughter and (laughing) choirs of angels sing thee to thy rest.
However, the intense irony of Mr. Williams’ sadness while making so much laughter is surpassed by the irony of the passing of the Classiest Clown Ever being followed on the World Stage by the Islamic Funsters of I.S.I.S. Will we ever be able to forget their antics? They can pull off mass beheadings so gracefully. Truly memorable. And if our Prez truly gets off his duff and does something violent to them…may raucous gangs of Hellish demons drag them to their just fates.
All of which reminds me of another (sometimes) very funny man, the late Christopher Hitchens, a now reformed British atheist. Whenever he talked or wrote about atheism, he was out of his depth and not funny. But when he spoke about things he was knowledgeable about, he could be uproariously funny. I recall one speech wherein he expressed his confusion about why Muslims hate the Western modern World so much. He was perplexed by finding a complete lack of logic behind the Muslim Hostility towards “everyone else.” He concluded by saying “since they hate us so much, I feel it is time to give them a reason to do so.”
