  • Political Theatre - Dog Whistles
    eagerly act as if we are anointing a ruler rather than electing a chief executive answerable to each of us In this we are equally encouraged by our own fears as by those seeking to exploit them The aggressive selfishness these candidates seek to tap into lies within each of us even those of us standing opposed to them The more complicated and uncontrollable the world seems and the more uncertain our place is within it the easier it is for these shepherds looking for a flock to find one We want easy answers We want to be taken care of We want someone who seems to get it This of course is obvious perhaps too obvious given how little attention is paid to it by the media Cruz and others like to bash The pattern is there for all to see the coded language filling out our politics and not even always from the right wing There was North Korea s seemingly laughable claim of detonating a hydrogen bomb Like every other New Year s boast under supreme leader Kim Jong Un it was easily refuted More or less That so few outside of Pyongyang take Kim s saber rattling seriously it makes one wonder why he even bothers Well why he did and why he will continue to do so is that the message wasn t intended for us but for his own people You can t simply oppress your own people and give them nothing in return They must have some sort of hope some measure of prestige and self esteem tied to the system under which they live Kim isn t about to offer his people hope and change let alone some myth about self determination so detonating any kind of nuclear bomb when more powerful nations are telling him not to serves that purpose The domestic North Korean p r translation the world looks down on you but look I have defended your honor and we have defied them together And then there was Iran fresh off diplomatically relieved sanctions and a prisoner swap capturing American sailors in their waters It wasn t the humiliating shots of the sailors on their knees that told the story they wanted to tell it was the haul of automatic and semi automatic weapons To Americans the tracking shots down the spread of guns looked pretty pathetic certainly following the shots of the sailors but we must remember that without the guns the sailors were just men With the guns they were shown to be disarmed emasculated men If you want to send a message to people who might doubt your right to power make it one that you stand with them as equals to a dominant power if you re going to do that emasculation is definitely the way to go Even Barack Obama soon to be former President of The United States couldn t resist a little passive aggressive emasculation on his way out the door Not

  • Political Theatre - He Who Laughs Last
    a lot of government waste much of it tied up in expenditures tacked onto bills by the very same politicians crying about shrinking things What they mean when they say it however is reducing government s ability to function Blocking federal judicial nominees makes it harder to sustain prosecutions and possibly more important civil cases because cases languish for years Blocking executive branch nominations makes it harder for government to oversee those oh so intrusive laws that they pass the ones meant to police banks and toxic waste disposal Obama s nominees have waited longer than anyone else s even if they are confirmed so yes if the Republicans want to sit on their hands and drag their feet they can Of course Just because we can is hardly the sort of slogan you want to run with in an election year at least not in a country where you aren t guaranteed 99 of the vote with a few abstentions It s certainly not something you want to trot out in a presidential election year in this country not that that will stop them from trying The statements made by Republican presidential candidates in the hours after Scalia s death was announced were pretty laughable each assuring the American public that the next president should get to make the decision by which they shamelessly meant themselves Still none of them can hold a candle to the man who has already stated with utter certainty that he will give that next Republican president that opportunity Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated that he will not allow a vote on a nominee until the next president takes office because the American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice No really that was his press release You can t make this stuff up He or his staff wrote that with a straight face The man currently working in the Oval Office the same President Obama who is currently in his eighth year of waiting for nominees to get a vote probably doesn t think it s that funny Of course he doesn t have to Give it a couple of weeks Timing on something like this is important There will be the pageantry of a state funeral filled with praise and bipartisan good will or something like it This will be followed after a week or so by the more humble pageantry of the official nomination At that point Obama has them or could if he understands the hand he s been dealt not by Scalia s passing but by the Republicans foolish arrogance The second McConnell declared that he would not allow Obama a sitting president to select his own nominee he set the table for how the Republicans might just lose even more than the presidency From the moment Obama introduces his choice Democratic candidates will have an issue Republican obstructionism For years Republicans like Mitch McConnell have bragged about their ability to
