Insanity in the News

June 1, 2012

Looking over the headlines in the Drudge Report, I am beginning to wonder if everyone in the world is starting to lose their minds. First, there seems to be an outbreak of cannibalism. There is the face-eating bath salts user in Florida, a cannibal in Maryland who ranted on Facebook, and a creepy Canadian cannibal running around France dressed as a woman.

President Obama thinks he will be able to get more things done after the election when the “Republican fever” breaks.

“I believe that If we’re successful in this election, when we’re successful in this election, that the fever may break, because there’s a tradition in the Republican Party of more common sense than that. My hope, my expectation, is that after the election, now that it turns out that the goal of beating Obama doesn’t make much sense because I’m not running again, that we can start getting some cooperation again.”

“I believe that If we’re successful in this election, when we’re successful in this election, that the fever may break, because there’s a tradition in the Republican Party of more common sense than that.

Obama said he expects that after his reelection, Congress will pass a balanced deficit reduction plan, a highway bill, immigration reform.

“My expectation is that if we can break this fever, that we can invest in clean energy and energy efficiency because that’s not a partisan issue.”

In other words, if he is reelected he will still try to pursue his unpopular agenda and squander the taxpayers’ money on crony capitalism. I have a feeling the Republican fever won’t be breaking.

Here, in the Washington Post, are the last minutes of a snake-handling preacher’s life. I wonder if he has been nominated for a Darwin Award yet.

Mayor Bloomberg calls critics of his proposed bad on large sized soft drinks “ridiculous”. I can think of worse things to say about a politician who thinks he ought to micromanage people’s lives. What’s next? Cameras in people’s homes to make sure they exercise?, sensors in toilets to examine people’s excrement to ensure they are eating a healthy diet? These scenarios seem outlandish, but I wouldn’t put anything past the health Nazis.

And DC Comics has decided to make the Green Lantern a homosexual. Why? Comic book superheroes don’t need to have any kind of sexuality at all. Who are these perverts who have to include a gay character in every conceivable form of entertainment? Can’t we have a break from this?

And that is the way it was.
