Political Truth or Political Satire?
My contention and political theory is that GOP tactics seem to always find precedent in popular Children's literature. Don't believe me? Think I am full of it? OK I will elaborate to test my theory. When I first started writing this it was supposed to be satire. However I discovered to my horror that my silly satirical theory about GOP tactics being based on children's stories, has more than a wee element of truth to it.
Case in point 1:
Once upon a time there were three little pigs, named Boehner, Cruz, and McConnell, who accused a Big Bad Black Wolf named Obama, of huffing and puffing and blowing the house of representatives down. If this sounds like a classical nursery story gone rogue political, it is only because "infantile" is the true nature of the congressional GOP swine herd. The Gallup Polls confirm my contention that swine are more popular than congress, and be advised that swine smell better.
Case in point 2:
During the 2012 election, the GOP made Obama out to be Santa Claus and made "free stuff" counter arguments against him from a Charles Dickens "Scrooge" point of view. The storyline is straight out of Charles Dickens Christmas Tale. History shows that "Santa" kicked the party of Scrooge all over the electoral college and liberals lived happily ever after.
Case in point 3:
Then there was George W. Bush who had more in common with a "comic book rhinestone cowboy" than a chief executive. He was by far more Tex Ritter than President.
Case in point 4:
Once upon a time, Mitt Romney pronounced himself the terminator of Sesame Street's beloved Big Bird. The whole nation screamed NO at the polls and liberals lived happily ever after.
Case in point 5:
Remember Senator Cruz reading Dr. Seuss' "Green Eggs And Ham" during his infamous attempt at a marathon filibuster at considerable expense to the taxpayer.
Case in point 6:
John McCain and Sarah Palin A.K.A. "Hansel and Gretel" who made Hilary Clinton out to be the evil witch in 2008.
Case in point 7:
The precedent for Rush Limbaugh is found in children's literature when one contemplates the mythical "Pied Piper of Hamlin" leading a huge herd of rats to do his bidding with the hypnotic sound of his piping. It is high time to invent a better rat trap.
Case in point 8:
Michelle Bachman and Anne Coulter seem to take turns playing as "Damsels in Intellectual Distress" in spite of the fact that "Prince Charming" wants nothing to do with either of those hateful crows.
Case in point 9:
The Grinch is a fictional character created by Dr. Seuss who bears a strong physical and philosophical resemblance to Mitch McConnell. The Grinch tried to destroy Christmas in much the same way as the GOP tried to tank the economy right before the 2013 Christmas retail marketing season. If little Johnny gets no toys for Christmas, it is because the GOP put his parents in a financial strait jacket where they need the money to feed the poor child. Every good Democrat in Kentucky swears Mitch McConnell is the Grinch. I do not say otherwise, as Mitch did his best to destroy the Christmas retail season by shutting down the government.
OBSERVATION: Where is all of this going? The GOP just cut billions out of the food stamp program with the not so transparent goal of turning every dirt poor and crippled child in America into "Oliver Twist" and "Tiny Tim".
CONCLUSION: When you try to run a nation with children's books for a political guide. You end up with all kinds of childish nursery school tantrums in Congress. The end result a matter of cause and effect.
