So, the GOP has won an historic election in the House of Representatives and in state governments across the nation. So what can a cornered and desperate democrat party do? It can trick the new GOP members into the lame game of conspiracy theories. It can lay out some poisonous bread crumbs that will bring out the inner ‘Birther‘ of the fringe in the Tea Party – and set the stage for another voter backlash. This time against the GOP.
I have been following the story of the ‘Washington Insider’ posts for a while, and they seemed to be legit – if not stubbornly useless (see here, here and here). One reason I was starting to believe this yarn being spun by a niche web author and a supposed ‘white house insider’ is because of the information I uncovered in the link listed above. I discovered direct testimony of President-elect Obama’s involvement with selecting who should take over his senate seat. The testimony is clear, unambiguous and from those directly involved – one who is his top adviser bar none. This testimony and what it represents is clearly a lever Democrats could use to distance themselves from Obama’s mistakes and missteps.
But these insider posts also could be misinformation, meant to trip up the GOP and send them down the wrong path. America really could care less about Obama’s birth certificate. The initial claims of forgery were completely and thoroughly debunked. The only thing that could save the Democrats right now is if the GOP goes off the deep end.
The latest installment of this cyber-mystery begins with such blatant nonsense – and has yet to produce anything concrete – that the folks behind it have clearly tipped their hand:
Ulsterman: …The birther thing? You heard something on that?
Insider: I sure as -expletive- did. And they said it came from Pelosi herself…
Insider: Well, she was at it again and then she says something along the lines of, “How about I just hand over the goddamn certification file. They want me to go there? Because that’s where they’re pushing me.”
Ulsterman: Certification file? What is that? Do you mean certificate file? Birth certificate?
Insider: Hell if I know – no…it was certification file – assume it has something to do with the whole birther thing – eligibility maybe? Just thought you might want to hear it. Just thought you might find it…interesting! It’s an odd thing to say, right? And it’s even odder that it was said like that period. The person who shared it with me thought so. … Something like that will get your ass killed. No joke. But there it is – call it a peace offering for my rudeness to you in that last email.
This is pure black-helicopter BS. No one takes this mess serious – no one is going to be killed for being foolish enough to buy into it.
Even if the ‘insider’ is real and is feeding real 3rd-person rumors, it is more gossip than anything else. To throw the ‘Birther’ crap into this mess is a red flag. It just destroys any implied credibility that had been building, and actually puts this little PR game into a serious credibility hole. Weeks and weeks of hints of some pending scandal that would bring down a sitting President and save the Democrat Party from its laughable left wing – and this is what we get?
So now we either have:
- A shrewd insider ‘double agent’ pretending to lay out bread crumbs to an easily duped corner of the GOP and Tea Party so they can burn through their limited political capitol chasing ghosts, or
- A complete fiction created by Ulsterman, or
- A real scandal coming.
Checkout this snippet while sitting in the skeptics perch:
Those Republicans on the Hill? Oh yeah, those little -expletive- are gonna bring the hammer down on this. They are gonna break every damn thing open until they find it – and they are gonna get help from some Democrats along the way. And you know the president knows it.
Not without Democrats leading the charge.
If anyone is to believe there is something here after the last couple of posts, then there better be something damn tangible and solid in the next. Or else I am flipping the channel on this charade.
Addendum: LOL – it seems this installment is to set the stage for a huge -expletive- ‘never mind’!
Insider: … Hell, from my perspective, her staying on might very well signal a deal breaker. A goddamn deal breaker! But that ain’t gonna happen. No sir. Unless I’m wrong of course – then this thing is a cluster -expletive- multiple times over.
I strongly suspect Nancy Pelosi has certain information, or parts of information, that-that would be essential to helping certain investigations against the White House. Investigations that could lead all the way to the top. It was my understanding that Pelosi had decided to let this information be known to others, say members of a committee, in her…absence.
Ok, so if I’m being told this, being told repeatedly that Speaker Pelosi has had it with the White House, has had it with the president, is gonna help send them all packin’ away to political has-been street, and then she actually stays on as party leader, that means something happened. Something changed from what I am being told. Or somebody got it wrong – and either way, I can be -expletive- over on this whole thing.
It seems our brave, little -expletive- of an ‘Insider’ has been thwarted – by Nancy Pelosi! Anyone really think liberal Pelosi would turn on liberal Obama and help the more centrist Clintonistas regain control of the party???
