Bromides and Loooong State of the Union Addresses

A friend recently told me “Your cartoons aren’t really funny.” (What are friends for, anyway…if not to break your heart?) I was relieved when she told me the reason they aren’t funny is because they address issues that aren’t funny. (I felt a little better.) I guess they are like gallows humor. Sometimes you’re so desperate for a laugh, you’ll laugh at anything.
 
I think we’re at that place. Desperately trying to find the humor. We gave Obama the “benefit of a doubt.” (That’s kind of a bromide…now.) In spite of his ridiculous lack of experience …and look where that brought us. 

A “community organizer” whatever that is. That was the only thing on his resume. Everything else he had done was the sort of thing easily achieved through “affirmative action.” The Media utterly failed to vet him. They proved their (long suspected) worthlessness by their gross dereliction of duty. 

Without getting into the legion failures of his administration I just want to recall a statement made by the military puppet of the Ruskies, whom Ivan sent to quell Lech Welesa when the Polish version of a Socialist Paradise was falling apart. (They always do. Ours is.) The Commie/liberal/enlightened Ruskie Puppet said (for some fun, try to imagine the following being stated through a thick and mumbled Eastern European accent)  “These so-called dissident intellectuals aren’t really intellectuals, but are just a bunch of musicians. They should not be trusted. Why …we don’t even know if they are good musicians!”

Just now, I’m wondering if Obama was even a good community organizer. 

I think it’s a fair question.
