Dowse’s Rugosa Roses

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 10:38 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the amazing island of Nantucket!  Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, the twenty-eighth day of June, 2011, a rather muggy one to start and with the announcement of Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) running for the office of the President of the United States of America, I thought I should do my civic duty and remind everyone just how special a person Michelle Bachmann really is.  On the Sunday morning talk show circuit, Michelle appeared on FOX NEWS Sunday and spoke with anchor Chris Wallace, actually not that bad a news man, at least by FOX standards anyway, who asked the congresswoman, “Michelle Bachmann, are you a flake?” Bachmann, as smoke became visible, billowing out of her ears, responded, “I’m a lawyer (and that means what exactly?), I’ve got a titanium spine, I’m not going to be pigeon holed…blah, blah, blah, and I am rather offended…blah, blah, blah.  Flake, no, perhaps not, but, on the other hand, here we have a presidential contender who is confused about where the battle of Lexington took place during the Revolutionary War, speaking a few weeks ago in the great state of New Hampshire where she is today, saying these words–”You people right here in the great state of New Hampshire, in the towns of Lexington and Concord, heard that shot fired round the world…”  Now I don’t know about you, but I rather like my candidates for the highest office in the land to have some basic grasp of American history, especially one who seems so enthralled with the Constitution of the United States, and, thus, I believe will have difficult time convincing the 10 percent of the electorate that her bizarre stance on say, evolution, or the lack therein in her case, both literally and figuratively, might be considered, by said electorate, a little off pudding.  A big pro life position will not help with winning over that ten percent, the only voters that really matter, for in the end, democrats and progressives will vote, obviously, for Obama, and republicans, god bless their little hearts, will vote for a vacuum cleaner, if it says the right thing, and just so long as it votes along party lines, is not too loud and wears a nice suit.  It is that ten percent of undecideds that always, at least in modern politics, turns the tide one way or the other.  The tea party coalition, that Bachmann champions so, represents only about 17 percent of the Iowan population, if you consider a recent poll that asked people what they considered themselves, and if they identified with the tea party movement.  She will have a tougher time in New Hampshire and beyond, for her message of “inclusion” does not pass the smell, mustard or FACT test, and thus, will have an even more difficult time explaining some of her other bizarre behaviors expressed over the past two years, everything from her off center Internet response to the State of the Union address in January, to her problems adding basic numbers together while trying to explain that the Duke, John Wayne, is really from Waterloo, Iowa, the original home of Michelle Bachmann.  John Wayne Casey maybe, as the serial killer was born and lived in Waterloo, but not the Duke.  Sadly, Bachmann does not seem to have the shame to check out the basic facts of her own home town, even with the advanced technological tools at our disposal, such as Google, so yeah, when I think of Michelle Bachmann, I now think of those warm, soft, flaky, I mean delicious, croissants, reminding me of a simpler time, when I was in Paris, yes, I remember.  Oh, Michelle, is there nothing you and your flaky goodness can’t do?  Putting that amazing factual error aside for moment, this is what Bachmann actually said a few hours ago in her Presidential announcement yesterday in John Wayne’s, I mean John Wayne Casey’s home town of Waterloo, Iowa, and I quote, as always, verbatim–”It may have started small, but our voice is growing louder (shriller as well), our voice is growing stronger, and it is made up of Americans from all walks of life (urban thugs and all), like a three legged stool.  It’s made up of peace through strength conservatives (military industrial proponents), and I am one of those, it’s made up of fiscal conservatives (proponents of removing all safety nets established, by the likes of FDR and LBJ, that don’t provide any value to the top two percent), and I’m one of those, it is made up of social conservatives (those opposing abortion, gay rights, and, really, any basic human rights at all), and I am one of those, and it’s made up of the tea party movement (a corporate owned, manufactured, Plutocratic fueled, ‘grass roots’, rag tag conglomeration of about twenty five groups, whose minds are easily controlled by skilled puppets, I mean republican politicians), and I’m one of those!”  I’m sorry, Michelle, I’m no mathematician, but does a three legged stool, the metaphor YOU used in this little point, a point with four, count them, four legs, or points if you will, does it not have three legs?  Just curious, because your lack of math skills, as well as your use of a metaphor could be interpreted as you NOT really being all that smart, could we ask to see your Law degree, did it come from the bottom of a box cracker jack?   Inquiring minds would like to know.  With Michelle’s words hanging around the FOX NEWS studio in New York like dead air, you remember, responding to Wallace’s flakiness question, “Well, I think that would be insulting, to say something like that”, glaring at him as if to say something perhaps a little stronger, “because I’m a serious person,”  it was not surprising that one of the money guys got a hold of Roger Ailes and had Wallace ‘apologize’ to Bachmann over the Intranet, how pathetic is that?  Kinda makes you feel sorry for Chris, kinda.  However, Chris did apologize with these words, “I messed up, I’m sorry I said that, I didn’t mean any disrespect.  I simply was trying to put an issue that’s out there directly to her (i.e., are you bat sh!t?), because some people do dismiss her as a flake.”  (ding, ding, ding!!! Tell him what he’s won Don Pardo!)  Today, for the first time since 1996, I actually have some respect for FOX NEWS Sunday, barely and fading, but respect nonetheless.  Bringing LIGHT to the FACT that anyone with half a brain would consider Michelle Bachmann to be ill equipped–mentally, spiritually, politically, philosophically, emotionally, intellectually, and cosmically–to become the nominee from the republican party for the office of President of the United States, let alone winning over the ten percent of independents in a general election.  Citizens, many of whom are registered republicans, who are still looking for their wallets, stolen by the puppets, I mean politicians, that work on behalf of big business and don’t give a rat’s a$$ about the working poor, the middle class or anyone who does not have the money, social status, or right ‘mind set’ to give to the ’cause’–the cause of creating a PLUTOCRACY in this great and beautiful nation WE all share–destroying the middle and working class and setting this country backwards in the way of human rights, decades back, giving rise to a real battle in the coming years, or perhaps even days.  Brainwashed people and politicians alike normally give canned, rehearsed, and repetitive responses, so, in honor of the immortal words of presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann, “I’m One of Those…!” Was that out of context?  If it was, I’m sorry, “I messed up”.  Have a great day folks and please, should you wish, say a little prayer for the good folks in North Dakota, Minot to be exact, as they deal with the Souris River cresting yesterday, but far from drying out, as the record flooding continues both on the Souris and the Mighty Missouri Rivers… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
