In An Alternate Universe

The Powerline’s Hindrocket:

Obama thinks he is a good talker, but he is often undisciplined when he speaks. He needs to understand that as President, his words will be scrutinized and will have impact whether he intends it or not. In this regard, President Bush is an excellent model; Obama should take a lesson from his example. Bush never gets sloppy when he is speaking publicly. He chooses his words with care and precision, which is why his style sometimes seems halting. In the eight years he has been President, it is remarkable how few gaffes or verbal blunders he has committed. If Obama doesn’t raise his standards, he will exceed Bush’s total before he is inaugurated.

And because no post about Hindrocket would be complete without this walk down memory lane:

It must be very strange to be President Bush. A man of extraordinary vision and brilliance approaching to genius, he can’t get anyone to notice. He is like a great painter or musician who is ahead of his time, and who unveils one masterpiece after another to a reception that, when not bored, is hostile.

This whole Palin thing is starting to make more sense.

    Hindrocket is definitely mixing up Bush and Obama. People are constantly (accurately) talking about how Obama hesitates when speaking without a prepared text.

    Good lord, it’s like he truly revels in getting us lefties irate by saying stuff more and more ridiculous. I mean, one of the things Bush is *most* known for is the f’n BUSHISM! How can you possibly be an eloquent, deliberate speaker when there is a term for screwing up a speech named after you?!?!?

    Can Assrocket actually believe what he’s typing? If he does, how can this man manage to function in normal everyday life? The sky must be green with pink polka dots in his world.

    Can he not be aware of the four volumes (at least) of "Bushisms" in print? Obama would have to talk non-stop 24/7 for the next two months while bashing himself repeatedly in the forehead with a ball-peen hammer to even come near to the eight years of Dubya’s projectile verbal vomit in the public record alone.

    But you’re right, John – anyone who could type those words could easily envision Palin as the Leader of the Free World. Gods help us.

    I thought that this was a brilliant insight from Mr. Hinderaker. John Hinderaker is a national treasure, a man who has singlehandedly stopped Islamofascists by showing unprecedented support for President Bush’s vital Patriot Act. One cannot fathom the vast amount of lives he’s saved by defending President Bush.

    Thus, one feels a bit underwhelmed at the Hinderocket’s acclaim for President Bush, when President Bush would probably not be alive today were it not for John Hinderaker.

    God bless this man, and may the useless Fourth Amendment be overturned!

    Is he talking about the same President Bush that is still currently in office?

    The only explanation I can think of (besides the drugs), is that this man watches no TV and reads no news. Instead, he is living in a dark room somewhere, where he clips out articles from the New York Times, looking for hidden meanings. His only company is a one-legged GI Joe figure that he has named "President Bush", who he thinks talks to him on a regular basis.

    Came across this article a few days ago. Soon we’ll be rid of "The Creep in Chief"

    President Bush and President-elect Barack Obama are probably hoping their meeting Monday goes better than their first get-together, which left a bad taste in the mouths of both men. Four years ago, Obama and other newly elected members of the Senate were invited to the White House for a breakfast meeting with Bush, who pulled the young Chicagoan aside. "Obama!" Bush exclaimed, according to Obama’s account of the meeting in his second memoir, "The Audacity of Hope." "Come here and meet Laura. Laura, you remember Obama. We saw him on TV during election night. Beautiful family. And that wife of yours — that’s one impressive lady."The two men shook hands and then, according to Obama, Bush turned to an aide, "who squirted a big dollop of hand sanitizer in the president’s hand." Bush then offered some to Obama, who recalled: "Not wanting to seem unhygienic, I took a squirt."
    The president then led Obama off to one side of the room, where Bush said: "I hope you don’t mind me giving you a piece of advice." "Not at all, Mr. President," Obama told the commander-in-chief. "You’ve got a bright future," Bush said presciently. "Very bright. But I’ve been in this town awhile and, let me tell you, it can be tough. When you get a lot of attention like you’ve been getting, people start gunnin’ for ya. And it won’t necessarily just be coming from my side, you understand. From yours, too. Everybody’ll be waiting for you to slip, know what I mean? So watch yourself."
    Bush then noted that he and Obama had something in common. "We both had to debate Alan Keyes," the president said. "That guy’s a piece of work, isn’t he?"

No, his delusions are far greater than any eugenics-based lunacy (those can be disproven. This shit relies on tidal swelling in the frontal lobes of his brain): the man thinks that the president responsible for stating "Let’s make sure that there is certainty during uncertain times in our economy," chooses his words carefully.

    This guy is straight-up, no bullshit, all-endorphins-on-deck batshit fucking crazy, and nothing will ever convince him of that, not even a nice, white room with padded walls and a lovely matching jacket that buttons in the back. He’d probably sit in that room, happily drooling into his shirt collar, waggling his fingers in the sleeves, thinking he’s posting clever-as-fuck diatribes about how teh stoopid Obama’s speeches sound.

Make of that what you will, but I think it’s possible to be a jackass on the Internet because of your political opinions and then be a competent professional.

    I found this e-mail response sent by Hinderaker, which I never knew about because I stopped paying attention to him a long time ago, very, very amusing. In response to some e-mail about Jeff Gannon, he said:

    You dumb shit, he didn’t get access using a fake name, he used his real name. You lefties’ concern for White House security is really touching, but you know what, you stupid asshole, I think the Secret Service has it covered.

    "In response to some e-mail about Jeff Gannon, he said:"

    Jeff Gannon is a moral man that has atoned for his past homosexuality. I don’t see what’s wrong with him, and apparently, neither does Hinderocket. Why hasn’t Gannon blogged since Aug 20, though? He knew about the Ayers story before Ayers bashing was cool.

    He was wingnut of the year in 2005, though, so it’s pretty obvious that the Leftists hate him… even more than Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Dr. Mike, and Grant Swank! Mr. Hubrisraker is clearly a man of great intellect, and Time made him ‘Blog of the Year’ for a reason: He’s just so smart.

    But what does this necessarily have to do with his professional competence? His bizarre comments described above aside, I think it’s possible for someone to have pretty nutty views on foreign policy, supposedly his big focus on his blog, while not being a big suck at work. Hinderaker’s professional site says he does commercial litigation.

    I think it’s best to think of someone you might know who would by all accounts appear average in daily life but, when he goes home, has some sort of bizarre sexual fetish.

    Not quite the same comparison. If he’d keep his fucked-uptitude at home it wouldn’t be so bad, but by working with the MN Family Council, he’s working to limit the legal rights and resources of people in the larger community (as in reproductive rights and recognition of benefits for same-sex couples). When he leaves the office, he is actively working to fuck people over legally.

In this case, being able to comprehend reality is something that’s supposed to transcends that divide.

    @Vincent:

    Brian J, the problem with your analogy is that it ignores the fact that lawyers are supposed to be logical, reasonable people.

    I disagree wholeheartedly. A lawyers job is to first an foremost defend his client. Whatever that might entail. A lawyer is not required to present __the__ truth…they are required to present _a_ truth. Say it with me: "if the glove don’t fit you must acquit"

    Ask any criminal defense lawyer and the only answer they don’t want to hear from their client is if they are guilty or not. In fact most good defense attorneys shun that question. The defense attorney’s job is to defend, not to prove innocence.

    Brilliant. For his next feat of mental gymnastics, Hinderaker can explain how Jimmy Carter was really the world’s foremost expert on hostage negotiations.

    i think that quote proves that the wingnuts don’t really believe what they’re saying – it’s some kind of performance art.

    Let us remember that Hinderaker is a prime example of the people who tried, valiantly, to convince everyone that a couple of assholes in a tent in the desert with a sat phone represented a greater existential threat than Hitler and Stalin combined. To derive from that, that Bush is some kind fantastic orator really isn’t much of a stretch.
