From the always bloviating Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., at the always shameless Huffington Post, comes an article entitled, “Alaskan Independence Party: The Last Refuge of a Scoundrel.” Okay, let’s first state the obvious. Scoundrel? Well, the Kennedys know a thing or two (paging Uncle Teddy) about scoundrels, don’t they? Secondly, scoundrel? Who, but a blue-blood liberal, even uses that word?
Anyway, back to the LOL moment. In trying to draw parallels between Barack Obama’s friendship with the terrorist Bill Ayers (or was it the felon Tony Rezko? or the anti-American Jeremiah Wright? So many low lifes!), and Gov. Palin’s husband’s rather minimal involvement in the secessionist Alaska Independence Party, RFK, Jr. wrote this most laughable of sentences: “Last week found the American media once again boarding Republican swift boats against this season’s Democratic candidate armed with unfair and hypocritical attacks artfully designed by GOP strategists to distract attention from the cataclysmic outcomes of Republican governance.”
Oh, yeah, the media is so obviously in the tank for McCain! They’ve been incredibly detailed in their vetting of Barack Obama, haven’t they? And the way they’ve been striving for excellence in letting the American people know the real Obama, well, it just brings a tear to the eye. Such unbiased professionalism.
I’m sure there are many good reasons that Bobby, Jr., is so delusional, but this is a family-friendly blog, so we won’t get into it. But let’s give him props for getting in the “swift boat” reference, which is Democrat-speak for “waaaah, they’ve found me out.” I am, however, disappointed that he didn’t manage to blame Karl Rove or Dick Cheney by name for something, anything! Maybe next time.
