Readjustment: Seattle to Connecticut + Liberal Follies

October 2, 2008

I am still trying to readjust to life back East after two weeks on the Left Coast. I have concluded that the scenery in the Pacific Northwest is spectacularly beautiful while our Eastern landscapes are subtly beautiful. Contrast the two photos below; first West and then East:

It helps to look at the humorous side of things political. Just out in time for the New Year and a new administration, The Liberals Gone Wild Calendar:

The calendar is already in print; too late for this classic gaffe from Joe (“Smartest Man in the World” Biden:

Being interviewed by Katie Couric on the “CBS Evening News,” Biden said: “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.'”

Either Couric also did not know who was president in 1929, and that TV had not yet been invented, or she chose to ignore Biden’s ignorance. Contrast her treatment of Biden with her badgering of Sarah Palin in Ann Coulter’s account of the interview:

Here is Couric’s full response to Biden’s bizarre outburst about FDR (a) being president and (b) going on TV in 1929:

“Relating to the fears of the average American is one of Biden’s strong suits.”

But when our beauteous Sarah said that John McCain was a better leader on the economy than Barack Obama, Couric relentlessly badgered her for evidence. “Why do you say that?” Couric demanded. “Why are they waiting for John McCain and not Barack Obama? … Can you give us any more examples of his leading the charge for more oversight?”

The beauteous Sarah had cited McCain’s prescient warnings about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. But Couric, the crackerjack journalist who didn’t know FDR wasn’t president in 1929, demanded more examples from Palin.
