Just as I do not assume I know what is going on in your life or behind the scenes at your workplace, don’t assume you know what is going on behind the scenes here at DebbieSchlussel.com. You don’t.
On Friday Morning, when I learned that Republican Dr. Rob Steele was leading John Dingell (D-Hezbollahstan) in the polls, I planned to write a piece about it. But I do my homework and did not want to recommend readers donate to Dr. Steele, unless I knew for sure what his positions were on the Middle East, positions that are markedly absent from his campaign website. Sadly, I could not write and post my piece on Friday because of Steele and his campaign. After a scheduled interview with Steele that didn’t happen and then repeated obfuscation, lies, and good cop/bad cop routines from his staff, including incompetently dishonest campaign manager Mike Marzano and some sock puppet “female doctor” they had repeatedly e-mailing me, I finally talked to Dr. Steele, yesterday morning, after I confronted him by dialing *67 (private/anonymous caller) to his cell phone. Dr. Steele gave the right answers to my four brief questions (questions I’d e-mailed to the campaign on Friday), and I’ll be writing about it later today, as I had planned. But people, including a Facebook reader–whose exchange with me is posted, below–assume. They think they know what I’m doing and what I’m not doing. And they don’t. And–contrary to the saying–when you assume, it makes an ass only out of you, not me.
So, here’s the Facebook friend exchange I had–a person I don’t know who is apparently irked that I dare expose Toby Keith for the illegal alien-enabling fraud that he is, because Toby Keith is a “conservative Republican.”
Longtime readers know that I am not a partisan. I owe nothing to the Republican Party (which, incidentally, worked tirelessly against me in support of liberals, both times I ran for office). I call out all people of all stripes when they are phonies. Those who do not are the problem. And here’s another thing: the line that this is “the most important election in our lifetime” is kinda like the host of “The Bachelor” constantly saying, “The most dramatic rose ceremony ever.” PUH-LEEZE. Sorry, but if you think a ton will change simply because the Republicans are in power, think again. I’ll be voting Republican, but not in the throes and blinding hazes of any fantasy that GOP candidates for the House and Senate are some great moral paragons different than they were for the last several decades.
If that were truly the case, Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan would have the testicles to say, we don’t want Hezbollah/Syria/Arafat/Saudi Arabia-friend Jihad Darrell Issa (who said 9/11 was “simply a plane crash”) as our face–the face of the anti-Obama Republicans. But they don’t. They are ball-less. Sorry. When the Republicans take over the house, the scariest thing will be that Issa will become the very powerful Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. . . unless Republicans who’ve embraced this career criminal Issa (arson, car theft, falsifying military record, insurance fraud, unlicensed weapons, firing employees at gunpoint, patent theft and infringement) finally have some cojones to say “no” to him. And they won’t. They just don’t have it in them because they aren’t the principled people you may think they are. Really, they are just a tiny hair better than liberal Democrats. A tiny hair.
And, no, contrary to the Facebook friend’s e-mail, Detroit is NOT run by John Conyers or John Dingell. It’s run by an inept City Council (which once included Conyers’ now-imprisoned beard/wife, Monica) and a pretty decent Mayor who is hamstrung by them and unions. I wrote about that, yet again, on Friday, but this reader is too busy having sex with (or rather, getting screwed by) the Republican Party to let facts get in his way. I’ve written about–and against–Conyers and Dingell more than any other writer, columnist, and blogger anywhere. I guess this Facebook friend is so smart, he doesn’t need to use my search engine. He knows my work better than me . . . in his mind.
Sorry, but I didn’t tell Toby Keith when to drop his new album or when his illegal alien chick should have been arrested (and then freed for no good reason), or when my tipsters should have told me about it. I write things if I want, WHEN I want–on my own timetable. This is, after all, DebbieSchlussel.com. Not RepublicanPartisanHackstersRUs.com. If you were expecting that, try the anti-Semitic ignoramus Erick Erickson at RedState and his intellectually challenged colleagues at other boring, amen-crowd partisan sites.
Those of you who–like the hypocritical, partisan hack who wrote the Facebook e-mail to me–think that the Meg Whitmans and the Toby Keiths of this world are okay employing illegal aliens, but the Barack Obamas and liberals enabling illegal aliens, opposing Arizona’s immigration law, and refusing to enforce America’s immigration laws are not okay–YOU are the problem. You are why we never got a Republican candidate better than George W. Bush and John McCain (and Sarah Palin) and why won’t get anyone better the next time around, either. You are the reason we have Barack Obama in the White House. You are the reason 20 million illegal aliens are living and breeding within our borders and laughing at you and me. You are the reason we have Prince Al-Waleed Bin Talal’s FOX News–only a tad better than MSNBC and CNN, but not really–and why we don’t have better. You accept whatever crumbs they give you, and even then you have double standards you apply to crumbs from the left.
For everyone else–for those with even a modicum of intellectual honesty–if you want to read interesting news and insight without double standards and partisanship, this is the place. And I will continue to expose the Toby Keiths and John Conyerses and John Dingells of the world here . . . when I decide the time is right.
