For help on how to follow a comic title,
Behold! Comes now the theme of Dr. Strangelove.
What? You would give the craven GOP legislators, and as we shall see soon enough, the craven GOP “Justices” on the Supreme Court all free passes?
Ya know (as Andy Rooney used to say), Ya know, at first I was certain Nino354’s comments were sarcasm. No one, not even a dyed in the wool, brass bound, cast iron boilered, nickel trimmed Ol’ Punkinhead supporter could be so stupid as to believe the stuff he’s posted. Now I’m not so sure. While I don’t make a habit of ad hominem attacks on other commenters, I recall the remark Twain (or Lincoln) made in this regard: “It’s better to remain silent and let people think you’re stupid than it is to speak up and remove all doubt.”
I thought again about that photo of Ol’ Punkinhead brandishing “a Bible”, and (forgive me) the image of the preacher in “Blazing Saddles” cringing as somebody in the crowd drilled it with a .44, popped spontaneously into my mind.
That’s a little too strong, I think. Taylor, like many others, is caught in the maelstrom, perhaps, but he’s no Bull Conner or Joe Arpaio. About 80 businesses in Indianapolis have been vandalized, downtown buildings and monuments defaced, and at least 3 people killed. Curfews have been in place for 2 nights, and has been extended for a third night. Many of the protesters who were arrested won’t be charged. I don’t know what the fate of those caught looting or starting fires will be.
I beg to differ. Unless things have changed and re-stabilized 90+ percent of Republicans still support Ol’ Punkinhead, and they do so without reservation. Further, his approval rating is still north of 40 percent. These figures imply that Republicans ARE the problem. QED.
I have seen that disgusting photo. You should listen to Bishop Maryanne Buddy’s (sp?) excoriation of Ol’ Punkihead’s cheap grandstanding and Bible waving ploy. It’s on NPR’s Morning Edition for June second, it’s took the Bishop about 10 seconds to demolish his crude gambit, which she followed up with several meaningful alternative actions that a real leader could have taken. Sadly, even if Ol’ Punkinhead had acted in a meaningful manner such as she suggested, his credibility with the intended constituency he wants to motivate is in ruins. Therefore no one would believe anything he said.
County Sheriff’s deputies in Marion County used to wear brown shirts. The present Indianapolis police uniform is black. Also, IPD Chief Taylor is a black man.
Or an MRAP?
Maybe the intention is to represent injustice?
