Fake Singing, Real Tyranny

Beyoncé lip-synched “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Obama’s inaugural. She’s as real as Manti Te’o’s dead girlfriend. Meanwhile, Harry Reid — who hasn’t passed a budget in four years — is threatening to turn the U.S. Senate into North Korea with himself as Dear Leader.

Isn’t this the part of the story where the barbarians storm the city gates while the emperor is having an orgy with his decadent courtiers?

    I fear that no handwriting on the wall is a warning for the rest of us…

    The barbarians are already in the city, as the emperor opened the gates for them.

    Just remember, to Barack & Co., we’re nothing but barbarians.

    A lip-synched anthem for the Teleprompter President. How appropriate.

    A perfect fit for the Milli Vanilli Presidency. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

    The Emperor did have the modern feminized version of a Roman Orgy at The Executive Mansion late Monday Night.

    We’re the Visigoths, the Outlaws [as Jeff Goldstein puts it].

    Heh. I seem to have recently used the same handwriting on the wall in a comment here (or was it at Hogewash?)

    Obama wishes he was Emperor.
    How many characteristics does Obama share with Nero?

    1) They both fiddled around instead of doing their job.
    2) They both hung out with actors
    3) Both traveled the hershey highway
    4) Arrogance
    5) Disdain for common man
    6) Extravagant on gov’t dime
    7) Disregard for will of people
    8) Use gov’t money to buy votes
    9) Hatred of tradition
    10) Ignorant supporters

    They call us barbarians because we have guns. Without guns they’d call us slaves.

    Is it just me or was Beyonce prettier when she was a black girl?
