Post Bin Laden Derangement Syndrome


Osama Bin Laden is dead, dead as a doornail.

To The Pink Flamingo, that is all that really matters.

The Pink Flamingo rarely disagrees with Lindsey.  This is one of those times when I do/don’t.

You see, I don’t give a damn about the blasted photos. Yea, they probably need to be released.  Right now, though, I’m more interested in why the Obama Administration has denied Federal Aid to Texas.

If you want a humble Pink Flamingo opinion, this is one of the dirtiest things I’ve seen in a long time.  If you don’t this timing was not planned, and not politically motivated then think again.  You don’t think the timing is suspicious?  I do.

No one is paying attention to what has been done to Texas.  All the right can do is discuss releasing the photos and the left can do is complain about George W. Bush.

It was quite nice while it lasted, nearly a whole two hours of national unity.  Then the sniping began.  The politicking began, and the attacks began, both far left and far right.  The Pink Flamingo had no intention of even writing about any of this, until I read that Michelle Malkin was complaining that George W. Bush had not taken Obama up on his Ground Zero invitation.

Why on earth would Bush do it?

Malkin, as usual, makes GWB (who was terribly gracious and completely consistent in his desire to be left alone) the enemy.  I gather she did not get the memo that the whole thing was turning into a political grandstanding appearance for Obama. Then again, if Bush had attended, Malkin would be damning him for going.

There are certain conservatives with whom George W. Bush cannot win.

Michelle Malkin is one of them.

Then there is the “Osama Bounce“.  Heavens to whatever!  I’m sorry, but this is just plain sick.  You know something?  I don’t care.  There’s not going to be a bounce.  If the polling had been done immediately on Sunday night, there may have been a bounce.  We’re dealing with Barack Obama.  Just sit back and wait five minutes.  He will screw up somehow.  He can’t help it.  When you have no real core you just can’t help it.

On Wednesday, The Pink Flamingo went into the local grocery store.  I bought 4 gallons of the cheapest RO water I could find to feed my Aero Garden.  Water that was 75 cents a month ago was $1.19 today.  I bought something different.  It was still 93 cents.  Aside from that, I bought 4 other items – $28.75!  Please, someone explain how Obama is going to get a bounce out of such obscene inflation?

Was bin Laden a pot head?  Now, this is one of those things that I find a bit humorous.  Let’s play it up for awhile.  I find the stories about the neighborhood kids fascinating.  It may be more revealing than anything else.  It proves to me that people did not know who was living in the compound.  They were concerned that it was some big time criminal or drug kingpin.  Their kids were given instructions to stay away from it.  People were wary and afraid of it, but never dreamed why they were afraid.

Too bad no one is talking about that story.

Getting back to the photos, yea, they need to be released.  People are such fools, if they aren’t they will do unto Obama what they have done unto JFK.  The real problem here is THIS is not about Obama.  But, due to the actions of Obama and his White House, it is NOTHING but about Obama.  So, when you look at it that way, it doesn’t matter.  People are going to be as stupid as they want to be.  No amount of posturing on either side is going to change that.

On the other hand, making a big stink about Obama’s FEMA denying Texas the help they need could truly cause a world of hurt, especially here in NM, CL, UT, OK, NV, AZ.  We live with the threat of fire.  If Obama’s FEMA is not going to take it serious, then this is a a very serious wedge issue.

I’ll leave the commentary to A. J. Strata, who thinks Obama has blundered this so much it will bring down his Administration.  I suspect Strata has a rich fantasy life.  It doesn’t matter.  Obama is going to wriggle out of this one.  The left media will defend him, and the right wing media has so horribly discredited themselves that any suggestion of the insanity Strata mentions is not even going to have wings of Play-Dough.

There will be no credible discussion about what did or did not happen because the members of the far right press, the extreme right bloggers, and most of the talking radio heads have destroyed their credibility.  They can talk all they want, patting themselves on the back for their usual ‘I told you so’, and complaining like Malkin did that Barack Obama did not take her suggestion (are we getting a little bit too big for our blog) for unity.

Truly, who gives a rip?  With the exception of FOX and the blogs, no one is even talking about it today.  They’re back to complaining about the economy.  No one I talked to today cared about the pictures.

It doesn’t matter.

All that one need realize is that Barack Obama is up for reelection, and people are terrified about the economy.  Most are terrified that the idiots on the right are going to listen to the idiot tea party libertarians and fail to raise the debt ceiling.

Enough said.

All that matters is that like Jacob Marley, Osama Bin Laden is dead as a doornail.

P. S.  To quote James Carville, “It’s the economy, stupid.”

In Mexico City a person can no longer use the US Dollar without changing it to Pesos.

It’s the economy,  stupid.
