Well, it appears that a horrible disease has infested the Left. It causes the patient to mouth off bullshit without thinking of the consequences. In other words, it’s diarrhea of the mouth. It usually has a narrative that is factually untrue and fraught with confusion, which makes it more likely to affect liberals than conservatives. It is a terrible affliction named after Vice President Joe Biden who exposed the world to its effects when commented on then-Senator Barack Obama’s presidential bid by saying he was “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s storybook man.” It’s called Joe Biden Syndrome.
Recently, President Obama had a touch of the Biden when he scolded the Supreme Court as “an unelected group of people“ in the midst of their decision on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. Even Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post was a little unsettled by the President’s rhetoric. Additionally, as all bullshit is, the facts are shoddy to say the least. Obama continued in his lecturing by saying,
“I am confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.“
It passed by only seven votes in the House. Is that a strong majority? Additionally, as George Will stated on This Week, ObamaCare would have been dead in the water if corrupt individuals in the Department of Justice didn’t destroy the late Senator Ted Stevens political career in a botched corruption case. On top of all this nonsense there’s the “War on Women.”
Just like the coverage of the Trayvon Martin shooting and the Duke Lacrosse rape scandal, this faux War on Women has spiraled out of control where it’s beginning to backfire. Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen is the latest victim of Biden Syndrome who infamously said on CNN last Wednesday night that Ann Romney “has never actually worked a day in her life.” I never knew raising five boys while managing your Multiple Sclerosis isn’t work. In fact, I’m pretty sure every mother, whether they be working or stay-at-home, was offended by this remark. It set off a Twitter war and Rosen tried to trivialize the event by sending kind-hearted tweets to Mrs. Romney. If one were to glance at Ms. Rosen’s timeline, be warned that your brain might hemorrhage.
I’m going to stand up for my mom. I would like to say that I was a handful when I was a kid and no one needs to tell me motherhood is hard work. My mom worked tirelessly to keep myself and my siblings well-fed, clean, and healthy. Although, as the baby of the family, I can safely say I got slightly more attention. My mom did work, but when my sister was born she made a choice, like Ann Romney, to be a stay-at-home mom and no one, especially Hilary Rosen, is going to trivialize that responsibility that my mother took upon herself.
I think this recent spewing of inaccuracies should expose the Left to the fact that everyone woman subscribes to the the gospel according to Gloria Steinem. In the wake of Ms. Rosen pulling a “Santorum,” which is accomplishing the epic feat of offending everyone in less than a week, liberals should take a timeout to ask themselves, “what are we actually saying?” However, that often leads to an orgy of confusion so don’t expect much regret over this incident.
