by Brian Wilson: Media
and Politicians Firing Blanks
Over the eons,
many pithy thoughts and things have been scribbled, typed, chiseled
and pounded about Truth, Revelation, Epiphany. Sliding down the
razor blade of life, each of us has likely had a few of our own
– but one Genuine True Revealing Epiphany may have zipped right
past you before you had a chance to be appropriately dazzled and
incorporate it into your collection of snappy come-backs and other
Maybe I can
be of assistance before the News Cycle seals it in the achieves.
So waaay back
in last month, outgoing (retiring, not gregarious) Sec o State Hillary
Whitewater Clinton, gave her much anticipated testostermony [sick][sic][sic]
to the Senate Foreign Relations Kabuki concerning the Debacle Formerly
Known as "Benghazi" along with the the facts that the
administration attributed the attack to Muslim reaction to a video
no one had seen and that the administration held to that story for
almost 15 days. While the brazen vacuity of her "answers"
in response to stupendously unprepared Stupid Party Members’ questions
was worthy of eyebrows arched to Charlie-horse proportions, it was
then The Moment may have gotten passed you -- or, at the very least,
the enormity of its implications: SoS (a fitting acronym) Clinton,
in full bluster responding to the impertinent questioning of Sen.
Ron Johnson (Redundant-Never-Never Land), bellowed the perfect expectoration
"WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?"
So there you
have it: One (1) USDA Choice True Revelation Epiphany in one moderately
unbecoming, undiplomatic belch. And while the repulsiveness of that
conceited flatulence is now recorded for all personkind, its’ horrible
stench, with an encompassing efficaciousness that boggles the senses
of mere mortals, has not received the notoriety it so richly deserves.
For if we really
wish to drain all the significance from the dregs of this socialist
gasbag, we need to appreciate the multiple uses this simple, eloquent
and pseudo-exasperated question actually answers – in a rhetorical
sort of way.
take the fog fest over the current attacks on the 2nd
Amendment. Please. Sadly, both sides haven’t come up with any really
cool bumper sticker catch phrases since ‘From My Cold Dead Fingers".
But now, the race is on to see which side can appropriate unto themselves
the check-mating TRE (True Revelation Epiphany): WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?
See how simple?
No more dithering over the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Who
needs Uncle or Aunty Federalist anyway? We have our answer to every
past, present and future poll, stat, fact, historical account and
law – even the colorful Graph Brothers (Bar and Pie): WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?
You say: Big
Dilly! What else ya got?
How about the
Stupid Economy? We most certainly have a Spending/Revenue Problem.
But WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? Are the Brainiacs inside the Logic
Free Zone going to actually do something after 30+
years of saying they’re going to do something? Riddle
me that one, TurboTax Man.
Social Security, the "entitlements" – all out of control;
"unsustainable", they say. All now forecast to be running
on empty long before we were promised the Promised Land. Accountability
may be worse than jock itch – but "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT
To fully appreciate
the One Phrase Fits All applicability on other formerly pressing
issues, ask yourself: Whatever happened to any final incriminating
conclusions re Eric Holder’s "Fast & Furious" scandal?
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
about Maj. Nidal Hisan’s Workplace Abuse trial-stopping beard lately?
It’s been over 3 years, ya know? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
autopsy report on psychotropic drugs Newtown executioner Adam Lanza
was popping 12/14/12? Go ahead: WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT…….
I think you’ve
got the hang of it now.
See what a
remarkable contribution the Smartest Woman in the World (1993-2001)
contributed to us, The Great Unwashed? Inside the LFZ (see above),
our Washington leaders pretty much always take full responsibility
for whatever has gone wrong (NB: Except the President. In that case,
it’s all Bush’s fault). And why not? There are no consequences.
No one resigns or loses their cushy Federal gig. So it means nothing
to say it. Standing on their two hind feet and braying "I take
full responsibility" actually works out to absolving anyone
from taking actual responsibility.
Maybe the new
SoS John "Make Mine Heinz" Kerry, won’t have to endure
similar pesky questions from uppity Senators, Congressmen, Blow-Dry
Media, even the More or Less Miserables among us who might be inclined
to ask out of concern for what shreds may be left of the Rule of
Responsibility. Capability. Culpability. Oh, sorry – these words
have no applicability here. I’m merely posting them for you to get
one final look at them before Winston Smith does his thing.
being what they are these days (see Attention
Deficit Democracy, James Bovard) and considering the LRC
Word Count Police, let’s take the bull by the tail and facing our
future squarely: remember to use, appreciate and take comfort in
that New All-Purpose, Fast-Acting, Poly-Unsaturated, One-Size-Fits-All
Cure-All for the Common Empire – say it with me now: WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE?
BTW and FYI:
that ‘anti-Islam’ Youtube video maker who was blamed for starting
all this? He’s still moldering in some California jail in lieu of
SoS and POTUS.
Wilson [send him mail],
nationally ignored talk show host and occasional LRC un-indicted
co-contributor, is currently taking a break from his daily annoyance
of miniscule audiences and concentrating his efforts on the Libertas
Media Project, a multi-media Internet news distribution
and discussion center from his technically challenged studios on
the shores of Smith Mountan Lake, Virginia.
