What happens when the rhetoric on our political landscape slips from impressionist to bold fauvism, absolving the need for the wild-colored language to actually form some semblance of an honest representation of something real? Those early painters who created the les Fauves style, which translates to wild beasts, made free and easy with their art, resorting to wild colors splashed upon a canvas, rather than trying to paint something real. Is this the new political les Fauves style? President Obama waffled on Syria and kowtowed to Iran, but never fear, he’s boldly charging forward on the only battleground where he possesses the intestinal fortitude to stand his ground – political posturing. Yes, he’s fearlessly leading his band of Congressional firebrands on a scorched earth charge, using some of the dems most volatile flame-throwers.
From Legal Insurrection some of Obama’s Raiders dimmest lobs (British vernacular, please):
1. “Unhinged” Arsonists (Wasserman-Schultz)
2. Insane People Who “Have Lost their Minds” (Harry Reid)
3. “People with a Bomb Strapped to their Chest” (aka Terrorists)(Dan Pfeiffer)
4. Blatant Extortionists (Jay C“arney)
5. Legislative Arsonists” (Nancy Pelosi)
Word of advice to the GOP – don’t take the bait, just act like calm, sensible adults and when asked about the fire-bombing, laugh at them and ridicule them. Keep offering proposals and let them spontaneosuly combust.
