Fake Steak; Real Turkeys
Jim Geraghty reports that Hillary Clinton has returned to Iowa. Once every four years she whips out a Michelin Atlas and finds it. She visits it with only slightly greater frequency than with which Senator Landrieu makes it back home to Mom and Dad in Louisiana. This year Senator Tom Harkin invited her back as a personal guest. He was holding his 37th and Last* “Harkin Steak Fry.” It was staged to the point of, well, being this artificial.
Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.
As the Democrats degenerate into a laughable party of Fake-Steaks, Fake Residences, Fake Indians and Phony Skeet-Shooters, it doesn’t surprise me that they actually have to point out that they are not Barack Obama. It’s not like they can legitimately claim to be much of anything. Perhaps this explains the furor with which critics of George W. Bush pursued the now-debunked “Fake Turkey Story.”
“It’s a real theme in so many people’s minds, it’s almost got a religious aspect to it,” said Tim Blair, a columnist at The Daily Telegraph in Australia who has tracked the story over the past decade and said it has taken on a life of its own, playing on people’s perceptions of the former president. “If you’re of the anti-Bush faith, it’s a touchstone. It’s the book of turkey.” Washington Times
They want so badly for the rest of the world to be debased to their level. The Democrats in DC are empty, numb suck-holes of human beings who won’t even attempt to cook their own steaks if it can be choreographed ahead of time for them. Hillary may be into fake steak, but make no mistake; she’s a real turkey. No wonder these guys have a fetish for “Reset” buttons. It’s how you reboot a unit of Hillaryborg that gets stuck in an infinite loop.
*-Amen, praise the Lord.
