Serve The One & all is Permitted

Pike Bishop: What would you do in his place? He gave his word.

Dutch Engstrom: He gave his word to a railroad.

Pike Bishop: It’s his word.

Dutch Engstrom: That ain’t what counts! It’s who you give it *to*!

One last thing about the Shut­down fight.

I posted this Morn­ing in my “Why we fight” piece about Mitch McConnell’s Ken­tucky reward for his part in secur­ing a vic­tory for the White House and Democrats.

What I didn’t talk about was the left’s reac­tion to it.

On Morn­ing Joe today in the 2nd seg­ment politico brought up the deal and the kick­back for his state, Joe Scar­bor­ough snick­ered at the idea not­ing the polit­i­cal crass­ness of it.

One would think that a cri­tique of the GOP leader would be hap­pily joined by the left­ists at the table but they were hav­ing none of it.

One INSISTED McConnell had not asked for or had any­thing to do with the change, a sec­ond said it was a small price to pay for re-​opening the gov­ern­ment and the ven­er­a­ble Cokie Roberts defended it as a pro­gram that had been in the works for years that ben­e­fited peo­ple in his state.

It was sim­ply amaz­ing, here was the Repub­li­can Leader in the Sen­ate tak­ing the time to get some­thing for him­self that might help him per­haps in an elec­tion year using tax­payer funds, funds which he couldn’t secure using the nor­mal pro­ce­dures and what is the left’s reaction?

They defended him to the hilt.

How can this be, well it’s pretty easy.

First of all these peo­ple all want mas­sive spend­ing to return, this is exactly the type of stuff they want for their own, so nat­u­rally they cheer at any chance of it tak­ing place.

But more impor­tantly, McConnell brought Obama and the left vic­tory over the tea party and any action that aids an Obama vic­tory is lauda­tory, from gyp­ping tax­pay­ers, to using the IRS as a weapon, to let­ting seal die and blam­ing film­mak­ers in inher­ently right­eous if it either serves TheOne™ or con­founds his enemies.

Those ends jus­tify all means.

One last thing about the Shutdown fight.

I posted this Morning in my “Why we fight” piece about Mitch McConnell’s Kentucky reward for his part in securing a victory for the White House and Democrats.

What I didn’t talk about was the left’s reaction to it.

On Morning Joe today in the 2nd segment politico brought up the deal and the kickback for his state, Joe Scarborough snickered at the idea noting the political crassness of it.

One would think that a critique of the GOP leader would be happily joined by the leftists at the table but they were having none of it.

One INSISTED McConnell had not asked for or had anything to do with the change, a second said it was a small price to pay for re-opening the government and the venerable Cokie Roberts defended it as a program that had been in the works for years that benefited people in his state.

It was simply amazing, here was the Republican Leader in the Senate taking the time to get something for himself that might help him perhaps in an election year using taxpayer funds, funds which he couldn’t secure using the normal procedures and what is the left’s reaction?

They defended him to the hilt.

How can this be, well it’s pretty easy.

First of all these people all want massive spending to return, this is exactly the type of stuff they want for their own, so naturally they cheer at any chance of it taking place.

But more importantly, McConnell brought Obama and the left victory over the tea party and any action that aids an Obama victory is laudatory, from gypping taxpayers, to using the IRS as a weapon, to letting seal die and blaming filmmakers in inherently righteous if it either serves TheOne™ or confounds his enemies.

Those ends justify all means.
