An inherent truth

The Wall Street Journal’s review of the the Nation’s magazine The Nation’s guide to the Nation delivers some comedy that I suspect the book doesn’t intend. But there is one part of the review that hits a particular nail on the head:

The Nation guide recommends a bookstore in Madison, Wis., by saying: “George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld do not want you to shop at Rainbow Bookstore Cooperative.” Yeah, remember that clerk, Dylan, the guy who was named Rainbow employee of the month last June? He’s in Gitmo now.

Gird Yourself for Exciting Yet Imaginary Battles!
As far as The Nation is concerned, just about every progressive bookstore, musician, theater troupe and mime is committed to fighting the stranglehold of censorship. Except, well, they don’t actually get censored, so it’s like they’re committed to fighting the stranglehold of Klingons.

That line encompasses everything about the left and oppression these days. Over and over they talk about speaking truth to power and how there were censored by the Bush administration except that they don’t challenge any power that might actually strike back. Those days a long gone. Maybe they are referring to the violence inherent in the system.

“committed to fighting the stranglehold of Klingons.” Marvelous!

  1. I feel that I have suffered significantly from endless moronic lefty BS that has become inherent in the system. I have to go around endlessly thinking, ‘What a bunch of stupid crap he’s spouting’ while desperately trying to be polite.

  2. […] There are a lot of people who have gone on about suffering who have made a great living opining on how they’ve suffered under President Bush. Nathalie Maines who sings for her supper comes instantly to mind but you can name a ton of talking heads who would qualify. When the world remains the world and real problems come up it will be interesting to see who they decide to blame for every thing they dislike about the world. That’s an inherent truth. […]
