The PC promised, a while back, to refrain from posting anything more about the gun debate, for a while.
So, how long has it been?
Yesterday, while the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which has, over the last few years, devolved into an "SNL" caricature of itself, paraded a cavalcade of right-wing losers across their stage...
Donald Trump one ups Clint Eastwood and addresses
a whole house of empty chairs.
Back in Washington, Sen. Ted Cruz (R - Texas) a freshman, back bencher, had the giant, shiny, brass balls to lecture Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D - California) a senior senator and really old lady, on what he considered the finer points of The Constitution.
Not surprisingly, Sen. Feinstein (who, The Blog sometimes supports, but also has a number of problems with, [probably a post for another time,] ) handed said shiny ones back to the little whippersnapper on a silver tray.
You can watch the exchange, here.
Much to The Blog's disappointment, the Senior Senator from his home state took the high road.
Here is what The PC wishes she had said...
"Look here, Skippy! You were seven years old on the day that I discovered the bullet ridden bodies of Mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk!That is what The Blog wishes she had said.
So, pull your wet behind the ears head out of your ass and learn a thing or two about the world.
Until then, get down off of your high horse and and take some time to actually develop a world view based on experience rather than ideology."
It's a funny thing.
There is an old-fashioned, "conservative," concept that seems to have gone the way of the dinosaur and dial telephones.
Respect for one's elders and an acknowledgment of their life experience.
Sen. Cruz tried to hand a great big "Fuck You!" to a woman who has seen more in her lifetime than that little asshole has seen in his few years.
Sen. Feinstein handed it right back to him. And, good for her!
The PC knows where Sen. Feinstein is coming from, where Sen. Skippy is concerned.
The new, young, conservatives have no respect for those who have experienced the world before them.
They know it all. And, we belong on Alaskan ice flows.
What a shame.
