I saw the Steppenwolf Production Fake about the discovery of Piltdown Man and the uncovering of the Hoax. I won't divulge the details of the play it advances a theory previously propounded and expanded by Steppenwolf Ensemble member Eric Simonson.
The over arching story contains episodes in 1914 and 1953 and plays them as Duality, the actors have dual roles and the themes of loss of loved family members to Wars and scientific theories and tests are explored. An amusing and sly allusion to god as an old man in the sky with a beard while a portrait of an elder bearded Charles Darwin hung above the stage was nice. The play was well done by Simonson and the acting was generally good. The only minor quibble being the strange vaguely Spanish-esque Inigo Montoya accent affected by the understudy who stepped in to portray French priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
However, the key to the Piltdown Man Hoax was the Special Pleading many people engaged in during it's four decade debacle. Despite the ignorant claims of creationists, Piltdown Man was never accepted by the entire scientific community as a proper fossil. Those who did accept it as a missing evolutionary link did so despite evidence to the contrary and by using Special Pleading.
Which brings me to the State of the Nation. The Last 8 years were a Debacle of a sham presidency run by incompetent boob and warped and cowardly old man. It left the US with two wars, neither won despite protestations to the contrary, and an economic nightmare built upon the edifice of a crumbled infrastructure. However, now that Obama has stepped into the role of President howls of rage have been directed at him as though he was in office on 9/11/01 and the 7+ years which followed.
What has happened, of course, is the Punk Ass Bitch REMFpublicans and their conservative birtherite teabagging followers are no longer in power over the Federal Government. Every action condemned under Bush as undercutting the office of president and the country is now acceptable for use against Obama.
For instance, the mantra was Supporting the Troops=Supporting the President, but the Punk Ass Bitches on the Right won't support Obama if he decides enough is enough in Afghanistan.
Rallies in which Leftists displayed signs equating Bush with Hitler and Nazi imagery were used were labelled insane, treasonous and aided the Terrorists. Now:
Obama is a Socialist.
Obama is a Communist.
Obama is a Nazi.
Obama is The Joker
Obama is Mao
Obama is Hitler.
Obama wants to kill Babies.
Obama wants to kill Old People.
Obama wants to kill you.
And these slanders are acceptable. Additionally it is necessary to bring weapons to Rallies against Obama and allude to murdering him via the Thomas Jefferson The Tree of Liberty quote.
You see these instances of pure hypocrisy are okay in the minds of the Punk Ass Bitch Right because they unabashedly believe in Special Pleading or Its Okay If You're A Republican aka IOKIYAR.
Those above instances cover the general mood of the Punk Ass Bitch Right, the REMFpublican Party and their conservative birtherite teabagging followers. But
In June, Congressman Mark Kirk went to China and told some unnamed Chinese Government Bureaucrat, "the budget numbers that the US government had put forward should not be believed."
Yet when Nacny Pelosi visited Syria during the Bush Administration, Sean Inshannity declared, while backed by The Skinny Blonde Harpy Who Shall Not Be Named, Pelosi was "attacking the president" and "She looked ridiculous. She's acting ridiculous." Other Fox Shows hyped the visit as undercutting the President.
Of course, when a Republican goes abroad under a Democratic President to "undermine" the government well it's okay. IOKIYAR
Republican Governor Mark Sanford, as a Congressman at the time, opined, “I think it would be much better for the country and for him personally [to resign]."
Now both these scum buckets have had affairs. Sanford coldly abandoned his wife and sons over Father's Day to met his paramour.
As the incident was being uncovered, as it were, Erick Erickson, of the Punk Ass Butch site RedState angrily declared to Democrats on June 24thWe Police Our Own and You Do Not Get To Judge. However, emails from Erickson indicated Erickson wanted to help cover up the affair. Erickson related the following: “If he wants something more personal for the blog to push back, I’m happy to help." “I wasn’t trying to be a reporter. I wanted to curtail the story.” IOKIYAR
Proven Punk Ass Bitch John Ensign, cheated with the wife of a 'close friend'. Ensign demanded Bill Clinton resign for his affair, "The honorable thing for him to do is to resign and not put the country through this." Ensign won't resign
Emails indicate the affair was known about back in 2008 by the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which of course, did nothing. And then Ensign's mommy and daddy gave the former campaign staffer $96,000 as a 'gift'. But of course, as Nevada Republican Chairwoman Sue Lowden said "This is a personal matter." IOKIYAR
Resignation for Democrats and IOKIYAR.
The Punk Ass Bitch REMFpublicans and their conservative birtherite teabagging followers are hypocrites.
