That was DJ Flightrisk at Pogie’s regarding a post on Ryan Zinke. It appears that Pogie has gotten the comment section of his blogged tamed and under control. No more loose cannons or off-topic comments.
It’s the Putin pose.
That was James Conner, whom Cowgirl often refers to as “The Flathead Memo” when seeking to give his opinion more weight than it warrants. Here he is heaping scorn on Ryan Zinke. This scorn, oddly, is reflective of the official position of Mainstream Media regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin. It’s a two-step process: First MSM prints it, talking heads repeat it on air, and then Conner thinks it and even offers it up as his own original opinion.
I could easily have grabbed two other comments, such low-hanging fruit is this subject. Just two observations:
- Amanda Curtis might as well be tending to her tomatoes. These people don’t care about that race now that the dullard, the poster child for mediocrity, John Walsh, has been taken down. Democratic leadership must be pissed that their appointed successor to the poster child for corruption, Max Baucus, was shot down. They are readily conceding the seat to Republican Steve Daines. Democrat followship ought to be upset about that, but they are not. That is why I call them followhsip.
- There is not much left in this country in the way of representative government, often referred to as “democracy.” As I look about the world situation, there is a monstrous attack on the Mideast via an outfit known as “ISIS,” known to be formed and back by the Americans with assistance from other client states. The Ukrainian putsch is waging war on its own people, driving them to flee to Russia, shooting down airliners, shelling cities ad towns and killing hundreds of innocent civilians. The object here is painfully obvious, to draw Russia into a border war. It ain’t working. Russia’s only public response has been humanitarian aid. (This would be Conner’s bare-chested Putin doing that.) There are wars going on in Congo killing thousands each month, while CIA is busy trying to undermine the elected government of Venezuela, a place where they actually seem to know a thing or two about democracy.
I could go on. Point is, Democrats are clueless about such matters.
My first deep involvement with Democrats was in 1996 when I ran for legislature, and I won’t rehash that experience. My second was 2000 when I campaigned for Nader. Both experiences left me with a low opinion of the nature of the typical Democrat: Not a very smart person. A Democrat typically will not know any issues well other than those used to drive voters to the polls, the wedges like abortion and gun control. The typical Democrat will suffer low awareness of world events. The typical Democrat will point his finger at Republicans and say they are “low-information voters”, but the slogan better reflects Democrats than the other party. Republicans, at least, put up candidates reflective of their own proclaimed philosophy. Democrats have to resort to cloaked right wingers like Walsh.
The whole of the Democrat operation is seedy and cynical, and leaves me wanting to breathe fresh air and avoid politics in total. Democrats like Conner and Pogie will run around claiming to be “progressives,” an insult to thinking people. They haven’t a clue what that is about.
I have a better word for them: Election whores.
