Posted on 06/18/2011 3:02:49 PM PDT by Barry Secrest
You know that things for the Progressive-Liberals are not going so terribly well when the cream of the Liberal crop begin to retract their fatally flawed ideological ideas back into their respective shells much like a turtle under grave duress. Yet this retreat appears to be the latest phenomena with regard to the art of the Conservative refutation. One of the reasons that we began running regular rebuttal pieces was actually based on a lifetime of personal experience. You certainly know the feeling: Minding your own business, meandering through your favorite newspaper when you finally make it to the Opinion section.
Can you make it out alive, often becomes the penultimate question once you began reading.
By the time you've struggled your way through the various Leftist opinions, your eyes are bulging, spittle flying from your lips as oaths seep out, nostrils a-flare in exaggerated irritation. Anyone unlucky enough to be around at the time begins to worry about your obvious blood pressure spike and your mysterious but sudden lack of emotional control. This was the thing that we sought to remedy, in part, by highlighting and refuting Leftist cupidity for what it is, and by golly it seemed to work, well...at least until recently.
You see, the collective targets of our past rebuttals, which have seen a fairly rapid rise in readership over time, have been mystifyingly dry as of late, and this is not due to any of our own editorial designs. The problem, be it good or bad, is one of not exactly being in a "target rich environment" of late. We had previously sought to directly challenge and address gaudily prominent Liberal misinformation on a fairly consistent basis in the form of a salty refutation. Lately, however, we have had precious little to work with. So, at some point, we simply must begin to wonder what exactly is up?
Desperately Seeking Superfluous
From 2008 through 2010, one could throw a stick in virtually any direction and hit any number of beyond ridiculous opinions perpetrated by the Mainstream Media's Leftist Columnists, an undeniable fact it was.
Truthfully, I can remember, over the past several weeks, actually feeling the need for drawing a bead and to serve it up both coldly and in belligerent earnest. I found myself actually traveling from one prominent columnist's site to another to see what sort of drivel they were spewing, but what I found of late is more of a trickle than a gush, which sets my eyebrows to stitching in consternation. Normally, these left-leaning columns were so flagrant and disingenuous that one had to figuratively hold one's nose in a death pinch just to get through the blasted things without literally gagging on the bile of Obama beatification, if not far, far worse.
But the Liberal manifestos of only a short while ago are not nearly so prolific by the major players, it now seems. So, as a former Alaska Governor, and a personal favorite of mine, is often fond of saying, "how's that hopey-changey thing working out for you now" Lefties? Hearty Condolences must be in order, one should think.
Oh, don't get me wrong, these Leftward Leaning Opinionists are still up to their traditional nonsense, albeit just not quite so...confidently...now, and with far less proliferation, it would seem, and yet who can blame them, all things being equal? Their agenda has fallen and it just can't seem to get up under the prescription of their champion, the One and Only, the Mortal Messiah, and the never-wrong but often misunderstood, Supreme Leader Obama....(excerpt)
They’re looking at the poll numbers and shutting up. The Democrats told them to shut up. If they win in 2012, they’ll be back flapping their gums.
I Don't even know where to begin with this sentence.
