The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Priorities!

Iraq is on the verge of becoming a failed state overrun by terrorists, and the Obama administration has nothing but empty words to offer.

At such a time of international crisis, it’s comforting to know that the Democrat Party has its priorities straight:

Four Democratic senators were so appalled by George Will’s widely panned arguments about rape statistics on college campuses that the lawmakers reached out directly to the conservative columnist to upbraid him for his “ancient beliefs.”
In a letter made public on Thursday, Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Robert Casey (D-PA) ripped Will for a piece that has been publicly denounced by one of the columnist’s own Washington Post colleagues.
“Having an ongoing interest in ways to reduce sexual assaults on college campuses, we read your June 6 column on campus sexual assault with particular dismay,” the senators wrote. “Your thesis and statistics fly in the face of everything we know about this issue.”

Yes, the most urgent business facing the United States Senate is a newspaper columnist’s thoughts about sex on college campuses.

    “Your thesis and statistics fly in the face of everything we know about this issue.”

    Translation: “We ignore statistics and facts we don’t like in order to pursue and agenda and support a narrative.”

    They sure do cry when you burst their bubble.

    Yeah, Jen Psaki’s going to show those mean old jihadis what a hashtag can do!

  • Cactus Ed

    Senators Blumenthal, Baldwin, Feinstein and Caseyand merely want to suppress inconvenient facts by, among other things, preventing (deterring, discouraging, refusing to fund) what they consider to be “dangerous” research. Will is honest enough to want the truth, he has no need for the bane of “PeeCee” ideology, he’s a conservative. The above senators are first and foremost progressives, and only secondarily elected officials. Simply, I would entrust my integrity with Will. I wouldn’t entrust anyone or anything to the above scoundrels.

    In a nation founded on the idea that everyone is equal under the law socialist Democrats have made it their business to create inequality.

    The ideology of liberalism is an ideology of nonsense.

    It’s like those ships at Normandy, 70 years ago. One or two ships, nobody notices. Thousands of ships, it’s suddenly an invasion.

    So all we need is the hashtag equivalent of thousands of ships at Normandy. That’s probably like a couple billion re-tweets or something really major like that.

    Yeah, that ought’a do it.

    Remind me to start yawning when DiFi gets all in high dudgeon when she’s not informed about the release of five psychopath Taliban terrorists.

    Call me when Jen announces she is NOT going to flash her boobs at the next presser.

    That chick lies about everything.

    If Will used stats – I missed his column, the world was burning at the time, sorry, probably Obama was playing video games – they likely came from Obama’s own FBI.

    Do the good Democratic Senators have an opinion as to why colleges don’t report serious felonies to the police, and what business schools have prosecuting sexual crimes?

  • RKae

    And some FAKE hashtags aimed at Calais just to fool ‘em!

  • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

    Haha!

  • Quartermaster

    Will’s column flies in the face of what they know, because what they know, just ain’t so.

    “Having an ongoing interest in ways to inflate sexual assault statistics on college campuses, we read your June 6 column on campus sexual assault with particular dismay,” the senators wrote. “Your thesis and statistics disprove everything we conflate about this issue.”

    I saw a couple of typos, so I fixed their letter for them.

    It’s not the things you don’t know that will kill you. It’s the things you know that just ain’t so.

  • Matt_SE

    I, for one, am pleased that both Psaki and Harf break the usual Democratic mold and are rather attractive.

    I just mute the TV when they’re on.

  • Matt_SE

    Follow-up question, Adjoran: Would you?
    I would.
    (and then I’d throw them a $20 bill and tell them to grab a taxi…but I’m a gentleman like that.)

  • Matt_SE

    Though I suppose I’d tell them to fix me a sammich on the way out.

    It’s terribly hard to get people who are satisfied with their lot in life – rich or poor – to knuckle down and do your dirty work while thanking you for the privilege as you put them in chains. Much easier to do that with people who feel put-upon by some “other” (in this case conservatives and Republicans as a whole – how DARE they ask me to work for a living?). Particularly if you make sure they stay dumber than a box of rocks and then lie incessantly about what the “other” says or does and make outrageous claims about what they’ll do if allowed to be in charge.
