WHAT DOES IT MATTER? Interchangeable Liberals

I’ve been screwing up lately by getting quotes attributed to the wrong liberal/commie/ socialist/terror-sympathizer. My cartoon about SOMEONE saying the secret to good foreign policy is to “not do stupid stuff” had Hillary tossing off the inane little maxim. No…it was Obama who offered up that throw-away non-sequitur. I think.

It’s hard to follow minuscule items like this because…after all…who really cares? Or should I say “What does it matter?” Liberal/commie/socialist/terror-symps are like dollar bills…they’re fungible. One’s as good as another. They are barely distinguishable.

You have to look carefully for the “high cheekbones” or facial characteristics of the guy whose kid would look like Trayvon…or…Al Sharpton’s former Mary Tyler Moore hairdo (OK…that was the Eighties, but nevertheless it looked silly) or…physical attributes failing us…look for typical liberal cheap-low-life-stunts…like plagiarism …as with Biden in Law School…or that Democrat Senator (?) in Wyoming (a Cowboy state, which makes it even more reprehensible because it besmirches real Americana…which the politician wasn’t).

But the point is it’s easy to confuse them because they are all the same. They may look different, but they say the same things, believe the same crackpot ideology, act the same and move in lock-step. The Republican leadership is also shamefully indistinguishable from the same folks. So forgive me if I mix up the quotes and terror-symps sometimes. I’m doing pretty good for an old guy.

Besides since they are “Public Figures” we can tear them apart…just for our own fun and entertainment. It’s part of the cruel burden they bear along with the huge salaries and pensions we afflict them with.

All this is by way of apology for messing up the quote referenced in this cartoon. If I have it wrong, “What does it matter?” The cartoon is right, even if the quote is wrong.
