With apologies to Black Sabbath:
The last time we checked in on our Leftist Mob, they were calling for the head of Mozilla’s CEO, and we all recall how THAT turned out, don’t we?
Well, they’re back, and just as outrageously outraged as ever. This time, the Perpetually Perturbed Provocateurs got their knickers knotted over (what else?) someone’s opinion which dared run counter to the latest Leftist Dogma.
(via the Weekly Standard) – “…Last week, George Will wrote a column about how progressive politics have fomented “rape culture” on college campuses. The column was not well received by some, or even, as a great many of the histrionic responses would indicate, well understood. I received the following press release yesterday, headlined: “87,000 Call on The Washington Post to Address Sexism, Fire George Will.”

Obviously, it’s not as if the President and the Democrat-led Senate could ever be to blame:
(via The Hill; May 13, 2013) – “…What’s blocking us right now is a sort of hyper-partisanship in Washington that I was, frankly, hoping to overcome in 2008, and in the midst of crisis rather than saying now’s the time for us to come together, decided to take another path,” Obama said. “My thinking was when we beat them in 2012 that might break the fever, and it’s not quite broken yet.”
“I genuinely believe there are Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them,” Obama said. “And as a consequence we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government…”
Ah-ha!! So, it was “gridlock” (which was mysteriously created by the combined efforts of the Republican base and Rush Limbaugh) which was/is responsible for Americans becoming increasingly “cynical about government”. Sure. That, like, makes total sense, …right?
Okay, so it doesn’t. Which is precisely why barely a year later, the President realized that he needed to remind us all (again) what silly little ninny-heads we seem to be:

Or put another way: the Rule of ‘Whim‘.
In light of the recent prisoner-swap of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, we need to once again discuss our President’s apparent disdain for the Constitution and its laws, which undergird our nation. Because to Barack, Rules and Laws are little more than speed-bumps.
Ever since his inauguration in 2009, Obama’s tenure has been one long game of ‘Can-You-Top-This?’ played at (and with) our nation’s capital. Just consider:

If you’re not entirely sure as to what I’m referring with my headline, here you go:
“White House mistakenly identifies CIA chief in Afghanistan”
(via the Washington Post) – “…The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops…”
Considering the absolute dearth of coverage this has received thus far, you could be tempted to believe that it must be no big deal.
And of course, you’d be wrong:

Let your mind drift back to any number of incidents and scandals over the past 5+years: the failed Obamacare website; the AP phone records; the IRS. And then ask yourself: what was President Obama’s reaction?
It’s always the same: only the reasons for it change. And this time, Barack’s reason for being more upset than you (or anyone else) is the burgeoning VA scandal.
From the Wall Street Journal:
‘…White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough took to CNN Thursday to say that “nobody’s more mad than the president.” Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters the president is “concerned and angry” about the situation.
That, as my colleagues Colleen McCain Nelson and Ben Kesling write, reprised, nearly verbatim, a similar White House tactic from last fall’s health-care website debacle. In October, Mr. Obama spoke of his anger in the Rose Garden. “Nobody’s madder than me about the fact that the website isn’t working as well as it should,” he said...’
Especially since his Nobody’s-More-(blank)-Than-Me shtick usually is in regards to some level of incompetence or illegality perpetrated by the Government. You know, that big Federal thingamajig of which he’s ostensibly in charge??
We’ve just been told for the eight-hundred-and-fifty-millionth time: this IS the most transparent White House in history. Of course, if you don’t believe that, well, …you obviously have some modicum of common sense.
You’d also have functional eyes.
But neither of these are hurdles to the Obama White House and its Praetorian Guard, who seem to believe that through sheer repetition they can invert reality itself:
We’ve all experienced it: the shrieking alarm that for whatever reason won’t/can’t be silenced. When faced with a noise (or a smell, or any other negative stimulus) which continues unabated, eventually over time it can become so commonplace, so constant, that we no longer pay it any notice.
Practically speaking, it ceases to exist.
The psychological term for this is “desensitization“. Unfortunately, it perfectly describes the Obama era and the White House’s repeated, extra-Constitutional delays of the politically problematic aspects of Obamacare. They’ve now happened so many times that they are barely even news.
Just like the shrieking alarm that we no longer hear, we filter them out. They no longer exist.
The most recent example occurred Monday:

The media has been desperate for months now to take the country’s focus off of President Obama’s policy failures, his floundering economy and the sick joke of Obamacare.
So ever since Christie’s ‘Bridgegate’ story broke last week, the Media has behaved with their usual restraint.
Now allow me to clarify: I have no problem with the press investigating ANY politician for practically ANYTHING. My only issue is with their attempt to simultaneously cast President Obama’s entire panoply of scandals as mere trumped-up nuisances, even as they portray Bridgegate as a modern-day Khmer Rouge.
There were many video clips I could have selected to illustrate this, but the following one is basically representative of what I’ve seen elsewhere:
