The Czar cannot decide which sentence in this email is more amazing.
|Oh great and powerful
Your humble and trembling minion on the plains recently saw this and thought it was particularly applicable to many calamities currently occurring under Dear Leader’s reign of error (specifically the huge VA mess):
Хвала и честь самого мощного царя!
Background: I am a retired USAF Lt Col combat flight instructor for B-1B (the Bone) and B-52 (the Buff). Gormogons rock!
Большое спасибо, Подполковник Человек Кости. We are honored to have you with us, and quite frankly, how cool it is to have a Bonemaster and BUFF tamer on staff, now. You will find your perk package on your guest room bed, in a sealed envelope. Good luck finding the room; it’s a big Castle.
The Czar confesses that despite his almost 750 years of age, he has not encountered Evan’s Law before. This despite seeing young M. Stanton Evans playing in the humid Texas Gulf beaches. Our readers may know that Mr. Evans is the one who coined the nicknames the Evil Party and the Stupid Party for our current two-party system.
However, Boneman’s attribution is apt, mostly because it seems to agree with the Czar’s position: the current administration doesn’t give a crap about veterans, and when this administration doesn’t care for somebody, that somebody pays in a big, nasty way. There is a reason, the Czar suspects, that Obama did not call for the immediate firing of Secretary Shinseki: because, for whatever reason, Sec. Shinseki is doing what the President asked him to do. Further, the Czar refuses to accept any pleas of ignorance from this President: he seemed to know an awful lot about how bad the VA was getting back in 2008, and suddenly seems to have been unaware we have a DoVA at all until a week or so ago.
We can cough and sputter out suggestions all day how to reform the VA. We have had some good ones on this site, and Puter has had some good ideas on Twitter about it. But you know, Americans have good ideas about every aspect of this administration’s shortcomings, and nothing is going to change. This is how the President understands it, so this is how he wants it. As with everything, this has all been a big game to him.
The economy took another hit this week as bad news came out about GDP contraction. The first polls are also coming out on the President’s handling of the VA situation. How does he think the public is going to react? How many more CNN blog posts will be titled Is this Obama’s Katrina? The Czar will tell you that deep inside the Democratic party’s beehive, they have had it with this guy; even his most ardently misinformed supporters are starting to get the message: he’s a two-bit amateur.
Worse, the president is fulfilling every conservative prediction made since 2009. Almost as if they saw right through the guy. How horrible is that?
P.S. Yes, why yes: we do rock. Thank you.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
