It’s April Fools’ Day, the annual event where the passive-aggressive take out their inadequacies on others.
As I see it, there’s no need for April Fools’ Day. No need to make up jokes and pranks, when you consider,
- The right, with the exception of Ted Cruz, hasn’t gone on offense on the Indiana law modeled after the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
- A Republican governor has been balancing budgets by juggling money from one pot to the other, “until all the pots are empty and the whole game comes to a crashing close.”
- There is no Senate condemnation of outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who brags to CNN that his lies about then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney paid no taxes for 10 years helped keep Romney from winning the election.
- While we’re on the subject, what about that eye injury, Harry?
- Cuban Communists brag “We won the war“, after the U.S. eases sanctions following negotiations where the U.S. “didn’t want anything in return.”
- John Kerry (the haughty, French-looking Massachusetts Democrat, who by the way served in Vietnam) is brokering nukes for Iran, an apocalyptic repressive regime which continues to chant death to America.
- Argentina’s current ambassador to the OAS allegedly held accounts in Iranian banks totaling nearly US$48 million.
- Hotel accommodations for First Lady Michelle Obama’s two-day trip to Cambodia cost taxpayers $242,500, not including Air Force One and Secret Service costs.
- Hillary Clinton.
So there is bad news, and good news.
The bad news: every day is April Fools’ Day.
The good news: we’ll never run out of blogging material.
