There's really no such thing as objectivity in politics. Each of us sees things through the lens of our own perspective and point of view. We can strive for an unbiased observation, but I'm not going to be disingenuous and tell you that I am unbiased. I try to be fair and balanced -- gee, where have I heard that before? Great concept! -- but detached from a point of view? Not gonna happen.
For example, this week when I heard that the Democrats explain the crushing setback of Governor Scott Walker winning against the attempts to recall him, well I hear it was because the Republicans had more out of state money. Actually, if you add in all the national union money that tried to get him thrown out, the money was pretty even. Nowhere near the 7-1 nonsense that was put out by the Democrat spin machine. Now I wondered if they had a little of that great Wisconsin cheese with their "whine?" Because I haven't heard the Democrats beat up on President Obama for hitting his all-time presidential record 150th fundraiser, or for his having flip-flopped on his promise in 2008 to follow the federal campaign limits and instead he outspent John McCain 3-1. I must have missed that.
And this week, I had to laugh when Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that he is for legalizing personal amounts of marijuana. Now all of this coming just a few days after announcing a ban on larger than 16 oz soft drinks -- not milkshakes, or dairy based coffee drinks, or beer, mind you, all of which has far more calories than a soda. No just sodas. Then the day after, he issued a proclamation for Donut Day in New York. On my radio show, I've now dubbed the mayor, "Nanny Boy." In fact, I've given him his own theme song, sung to the tune of "Danny Boy." This is the mayor who wants to ban smokes, salt, and sodas, but make smoking some marijuana okay. And what bad timing! A study released this week revealed that 1 marijuana cigarette is 20 times more likely to cause cancer than one tobacco cigarette. But then who ever said that liberals had to make sense?
And you know the Democrats fight any attempt to have photo ID laws for voters saying that it will suppress the vote and disenfranchise the voters? Well, guess what the Massachusetts Democratic Convention required to get into their convention? A photo ID.
But the real head-scratcher is the announcement that if you want to attend the book-signing events for First Lady Michelle Obama's new children's book, you'll have to bring a photo ID, and a social security number. Well, that tears it! You see, I think this is nothing more than reader suppression! We are suppressing the rights of people who read books. And furthermore, we're disenfranchising the readers of children's books!
Well, they say, illegals and dead people ought to vote! We don't need no stinking photo ID for that! But if you want to attend a Democrat event or have the First Lady sign your children's book, then you better have a photo ID or expect to be disenfranchised and suppressed. You see, liberals just don't have to make any sense.
