There are quite a few reasons to highlight the story of Biden’s daughter’s alleged flakefest instead of playing this magnanimous “I wouldn’t want it done to me and my kids” card being trotted out by The Chivalrous Knights of the Center Right. And I’m reposting my comment from another site but we all have our reasons.
First, let me second Dan Riehl’s observations here. The scolding Miss Manners of Centrism have gotten our asses handed to us the last two election cycles.
A. That luxury has not been afforded to the Bush twins over alcohol when they weren’t 21. Mary Cheney’s gayness being brought up during the VP debates. They put Pattie Davis in Playboy to piss off Daddy didn’t they? Andrew Sullivan’s conspiratorial stalker-lite snoopings around Bristol Palin’s nether regions and attacking a baby of all things. Etc., etc.
B. Joe Biden is a big Drug Warrior. That’s a terrific CATO podcast link to Timothy Lynch’s comments about Biden’s selection. Now’s the time to even out that crack vs. coke sentencing disparity. Otherwise, we’ll think that white people getting caught doing cocaine is no big deal but black people doing cocaine in crack form gets them sent up the river. Take one for the team, Ashley. Dad’s Team. Dad’s team kicks your door in at night. Shoots first and asks questions maybe.
C. She’s 27 years old. How long do you get to be a kid in this country? The tape is evidently of her joking that the lines aren’t big enough and from within the year. Sorry, but when Dad’s running for the big job and you’re out tooting it up like the whistle on the Chattanooga Choo-Choo you’ve got to know these no longer youthful indiscretions are going to bite you and Dad in the ass.
D. In light of the President’s plan to continue raiding pot dispensaries and the increasing drug violence along the Mexican border, Hillary Clinton is in Mexico this week condemning Americans for doing the drugs that have the cartels holding daily bullet festivals. Coincidentally the same kinds of drugs her Brother tries to sell pardons for and Brother-In-Law has been convicted of. Drugs her husband admitting doing and not inhaling. Drugs the current President engaged in freely. Drugs the last President did before Jesus became the ultimate high.
Let’s clean our own houses first, eh?
It’s a story whether you want it to be or not. When did Pajamas Media get to be the filter that tells us what we are and aren’t allowed to talk about. You can reason. You implore. But the only one who gives orders is Boss.
Biden’s helped write the laws that have sent millions to jail. If he can’t stop his own daughter then how the hell are we?
Dad’s running around thanking Spain for all of their help in Iraq. Spain hates us. They cut and ran so fast I was afraid that their mothers were going to switch them to safety scissors lest they trip and land on them. Maybe he should get drug tested too.
Maybe they should all get drug tested. If it’s good enough for our welfare recipientson government assistance, it’s good enough for our welfare recipients in Congress who just voted themselves another fat raise while millions are getting laid off.
Breitbart’s Conservative Manifesto:
The Huffington Post, Daily Kos and other left-leaning sites benefit from the right’s belief that there are rules and decorum in political debate and civic engagement. Of course, every now and then, a curious right-winger will go in and engage in discussion at a left-wing site, but rarely under purely disingenuous and mass coordinated means.
David Brock, John Podesta, am I missing something?
As a prolific consumer of online content, I value nothing more than the sincere expression of opinion that differs from mine. Sometimes I am even moved or swayed from my dogma. But that was not the type of communication that got Mr. Obama elected.
The American right is in a heap of trouble in a media age that doesn’t shun the goons and liars that have poisoned the political process and won the American presidency by breaking the rules of fair play. It is time to fight back, but it won’t be easy. The enemy is willing to do and say anything in order to win.
And our side simply is not. Even when we are completely in the right and have non-nefarious motives for doing so.
