Let’s see what the main stream media has been obsessing about recently.
Well, “above-the-fold” on the front page (or the lead story on the 6 o’clock news) we’ve seen stories about Cliven Bundy and his racially tinged remarks. Oh, and by the way, he’s a Republican.
Did it ever cross your mind that had the administration sent as many guns to Ukraine as they did to Nevada to confront the terrorist with cows the Ukrainians might have been able to repel the Russians? Just wondering.
We’ve also been treated to the expose of Donald Sterling, the owner of the L.A. Clippers basketball team with an endless stream of above-the-fold exposes of the racism that he has exhibited thanks to an illegal recording of a private conversation with his mistress-girlfriend-hooker-whatever. Oh, and just in passing, it is noted that he too is a Republican.
Did you ever wonder, even for a second, if his mistress-girlfriend-etc., etc. had ever been visited by someone working for the NSA? Again, just wondering.
Wow! Our smartest-guy-in-the-room (SGITR) President certainly has gotten lucky. Everyone who is anyone (as defined by the MSM) is talking about Bundy and Sterling. No one of any consequence is talking about our Secretary of State announcing that Israel is going to be an apartheid state because it is becoming a unitary state.
For those of you, who might need to look up the phrase (as I did), a “unitary state” is described as:
In a unitary state, the central or national government has complete authority over all other political divisions or administrative units. For example, the Republic of France is a unitary state in which the French national government in Paris has total authority over several provinces, known as departments, which are the subordinate administrative components of the nation-state. The local governments of a unitary state carry out the directives of the central government, but they do not act independently.
Since John Kerry was a United States Senator with, one assumes, a more than passing knowledge of the U.S. Constitution, yet who works for an administration that itself appears to be trying to create a “unitary state” in defiance of the 10th Amendment. This it is a statement that should have resulted in much more outrage than the racist comments of an octogenarian who can’t keep his opinions to himself.
And since everyone who is anyone is talking about these two racists, it seems there is just no time to concentrate on things like the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, the Fast-and-Furious scandal, the NSA unconstitutional domestic spying scandal, the ever popular Obamacare disaster-in-progress or the almost inevitable rout of Democrats from their seats of power in November. On those topics all the public gets is crickets.
So it appears, although to be honest I don’t have a “smoking-gun” memo signed with the blood of our SGITR President or his Prime Minister, Valerie Jarret that appears to coordinate this convenient distraction from current scandals, that these stories will inevitably be used to motivate the Democrat voter base in November in a desperate attempt to minimize the onrushing electoral disaster.
This once again shows the mastery of the administration-MSM ability to sing in concert:
“Oh! Look! A Bunny…”
