Bloviating Zeppelin: NPA: The National Panderers Association

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

NPA: The National Panderers Association

On Monday, two professional bloviaters, much more accomplished than myself, founded and set the proverbial Gold Standard for the new NPA or National Panderers Association.

Each targeting their specific audiences on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, they both bled, emoted, raised their arms to the sky and did their level best to pitch ridiculous themes that, unfortunately, their respective audiences thirsted to hear.

First, the nation's most overpublicized and least thoughtful mayor, Ray Nagin:

Surely God is mad at America. He sent us hurricane after hurricane after hurricane, and it's destroyed and put stress on this country.

Surely he doesn't approve of us being in Iraq under false pretenses. But surely he is upset at black America also. We're not taking care of ourselves.

It's time for us to come together. It's time for us to rebuild New Orleans -- the one that should be a chocolate New Orleans. This city will be a majority African American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have New Orleans no other way. It wouldn't be New Orleans.

Now imagine, if you will, the absolute hue and cry, not to say the state and federal lawsuits that would have erupted had, for example, the mayor of Minneapolis said "it is time for us to rebuild Minneapolis -- the one that should be a vanilla cream Minneapolis. This city will be a majority caucasion and white American city. It's the way God wants it to be. You can't have Minneapolis any other way."

Pandering, Ray. Pandering. Good job!

Let's also consider the beatific Albert Gore who said yesterday, in Constitution Hall:

As we begin this new year, the Executive Branch of our government has been caught eavesdropping on huge numbers of American citizens and has brazenly declared that it has the unilateral right to continue without regard to the established law enacted by Congress to prevent such abuses.

It is imperative that respect for the rule of law be restored.

So, many of us have come here to Constitution Hall to sound an alarm and call upon our fellow citizens to put aside partisan differences and join with us in demanding that our Constitution be defended and preserved.

It is appropriate that we make this appeal on the day our nation has set aside to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who challenged America to breathe new life into our oldest values by extending its promise to all our people.

On this particular Martin Luther King Day, it is especially important to recall that for the last several years of his life, Dr. King was illegally wiretapped-one of hundreds of thousands of Americans whose private communications were intercepted by the U.S. government during this period.

Let us do what I again call the "logical extension" -- at its most base, Gore is calling the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a terrorist. A terrorist. The NSA has been tapping the phone conversations of terrorists. Not valid civil rights leaders. And this is 2006, not 1965. Gore received thunderous applause for his comments from -- Democrats.


A longtime believer in the basic tenets and mores of the NPA (but not an actual member), Hillary Rodham Clinton likewise became the late-day third founding member with her comments from yesterday's Martin Luther King Day celebration at Reverend Al Sharpton's National Action Network:

We have a culture of corruption, we have cronyism we have incompetence I predict to you that this administration will go down on history as one of the worst that has ever governed out country.

I need you to tell us what distinguishes Democrats from Republicans right now. When you look at the way the House of Representatives has been run, it has been run like a plantation and you know what I'm talking about. . .

Perfect. The Race Card on MLK Day. You've certainly sussed your audience well, Senator.

Welcome, all, to the NPA!

It is ridiculous how wacked out the Dems have become. they are walking talking national enquirers'. What they are saying is no different than saying it is true that there was a baby born with a bracelet around his wrist.

What is this crap Nagin was saying.. sheesh.. I am sick of people thinking they know that God caused this hurricane, or God is punishing Sharon.. Who do they think they are?
We don't know why things happen.
When anyone says stuff like This it tees me off.
HOnestly Blo, I am getting real sick of the left and their childish politicking.
They totally pull things out of the sky and try to make people believe it is true.
(case in point: The Alito hearing and Kennedys attack on him).

That is why it is CRUCIAL a Dem doesn't win the white house in 08', and the Dems' don't win in 06'.. It is so crucial to the point that we could end up being a socialist/communist country.

The dems are playing with fire, it is scarey.

It's funny you should mention all this because -- get prepared -- I was listening to Air America and their host(s) and callers were indicating, as far as they're mostly all concerned, the Dems are not Left ENOUGH. Their politicians aren't sufficiently Left -- and, get this, the Media is clearly slanted to the RIGHT.

Imagine. The Left isn't Left enough. The MSM is right-tainted.

So, take all those things, in concert with what you observe, and what does that tell you about the perspective of most "true" Lefties?

I suppose you could say they're seeking a Leftwise Left of Left bent.

The even sadder aspect?

So many, many people cannot see this.

Before I even saw that you mentioned Hillary I was going to say that Nagin, Gore and Hillary all tied today for raising my bloodpressure. If this is what the Democrat party has to offer we have nothing to worry about in this fall's elections. Ugh.......

Newt Gingrich called the House a plantation in 1994. Was he racist? Really?

From The New Republic:

and on the eve of his great electoral victory ten years ago, the speaker-to-be told a reporter he was leading a “slave rebellion” against the Democrats who “run the plantation.”

I somehow think that if Newt said that, it wasn't in front of an all black audience.

Whoa, I can't beleive that I just responded to him.

Shame on me. Sorry Blo. I just can’t stand that dude.

Well, what a thing to say about your new neighbor Big White Hat.

I just bought 185 acres in Fredericksburg Texas. Just a little summer time home.

Thanks for the early warning, Orlando!

What a waste of 185 acres of Texas. Oh well...still a big state.

What kind of people would make those kinds of statements about someone they have never met?

What have I ever done to you?

Ranando: IF Newt said that, then he was wrong too. But as BWH observed, chances are he didn't say it in sympathy to an MLK audience.

LMC: I'm going there right now to go look. THANKS in advance!
