In the political world, there will always be conflicting views; there will always lynh mobs left and lynch mobs right, but the resolve will be the same. We want to do hangin’” of the “baduns. Here, we’re talking about “dem damn Democrats” or “dem damn Republicans,” but it seems, as of late, the leader of the lynch mobs are “dem damn ink-in-your-hands tabloid folk.”
The opinion of Dennis Dalman in his column about Michele Bachmann is just as bigoted as the statements made by Bachman. Agreeably, she is no credit to her party.
By the way, how does Dalman love the politics of the love-the-downtrodden-even-though-I-am-the-richest-politician-in-Minnesota-combine senatorial scenario? Sen. Al Franken even makes more money than a rather wealthy Bachman.
Dalman is like an old uncle of mine. I once said to that uncle, “I’ll bet if they put a jackass up for president as a Democrat, you’d vote for him.” “Why not?” he said. “It would be better than anything the Republicans could run.” Old uncle would be Dalman’s biggest fan.
Unfortunately when you mingle media and political activists, you come up with both the jackasses who earn the right to be voted into office without a lick of common sense judgement and the hee-haw reporters who will do or write anything to ensure they are voted in regardless of their qualifications. Perhaps Dalman and Bachman need to temper their tempers with the word moderation. You see, there are those of us on both sides of the political spectrum who vote via a moderate mandate and actually recognize how childish and how bigoted the views of the extremists in both parties are, including Dalman.
Once upon a time, the “third estate” was no more than a political platform for those who threw the most money at its editorial doorstep. Then it seemed we transitioned to a media flow, which both accepted and scrutinized the positions of all political platforms in a fair and unbiased manner.
Now it seems we are returning to a media scenario which has urged us to grab a lot of ropes and form a good old political lynch mob, and if I were a moderate Republican OR moderate Democrat, I would not get too close to Dalman while he is fashioning a lasso and whistling the song from “High Noon.” Actually, “Waterloo” would be the appropriate song, but that melody was made musically famous by a bunch of Swedes called “ABBA,” and you know how conservative those darn Swedes are . . . well, at least by Dalman’s standards.
