Welcome to a new feature on the blog, which I call Left Overs. (Get the pun?) I’d like to think of it as a hodge-podge of topics I feel are still important, but because of time constraints, just couldn’t get around to writing about.
Instead of the usual full-length feature, topics chosen will be short and concise. Kinda like CNN Headline News, for those who don’t have time to endure whatever it is that CNN actually does for a living.
Chick-Fil-A Controversy: It comes down to this: two wrongs don’t make a right. You don’t like the intolerance and bigotry of a business, you boycott it. What you don’t do is ban it from setting up shop in your neighborhood. Thanks to the nitwits in Boston and Chicago, what could’ve been a moral victory for same-sex proponents, has now been coopted by anti-gay activists who have somehow managed to garner sympathy for their myopic cause. Nice goin’ guys!
Shepard Smith Criticizing Chick-Fil-A on Fox News: Does somebody want to break the news to poor old Shep that he works for Roger Ailes? I hope his resume is up to date.
The Grover Norquist / Frank Gaffney Food Fight: How cynical must I be to actually be enjoying this? I mean one guy is a cancer in American politics and has all but kidnapped the majority of his party; the other is a myopic Islamophobe who makes Donald Trump look legit. It’s kinda like watching Mussolini and Hitler in a wrestling match.
Harry Reid Calls Out Mitt Romney on His Tax Returns: Either Reid knows something, or he's betting that Romney won't call his bluff, or he's a world-class idiot. Only time will tell. If it’s either of the first two then Romney is toast; if it’s the latter, the Senate Majority Leader may have just given the White House to Thurston Howell III.
