Krauthammer and sickle

Why can’t the neocons let go of the old Soviet Union? The end of the Cold War led this group of former liberals to move to the hawkish right, asserting themselves as “neoconservatives” and viewing America’s resulting military might as opportunity.

“Creepy” is an adjective DemWit has often used for the rank-and-file neocon – Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and John Bolton prove my assessment worthy.

But, the one neocon I’d least like to meet in a dark alley is Washington Post columnist and Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer.

As he rolls his eyes from panelists to moderator on Fox News’ “All-Stars,” he’s a dead-ringer for Anthony Hopkins’ ventriloquist dummy in “Magic.” And, even creepier are his attempts to dazzle viewers with his brilliance and baffle them with his bullsh*t.

In some warped way - in his continuing assault on President Obama’s efforts to communicate with Russia - does Krauthammer welcome a return to old Soviet tactics, just to prove himself “right” and inject new life into the neocons’ dying agenda? (After all, he and his ilk shamelessly used 9/11 to shove it down our throats.)

Over at Joshua Micah Marshall’s “Talking Points Memo,” in a post with the eye-popping title, “Obama Hatred,” writer Jacob Heilbrunn examines recent Krauthammer rants – rife with anti-Obama propaganda and short on veracity.

Heilbrunn writes: “Every once in a while - heck, make that at least once a week - Charles Krauthammer writes something about President Obama that sets a new record for outlandish commentary. The former speechwriter for Walter Mondale turned neocon has become convulsed, more than almost any other columnist, by Obama hatred.”

(Which, of course, makes Krauthammer fit right in on Fox.)

So CabbageTransformer used to work for Mondale? Frankly, Frodo assumed he just crawled out from under a rock. Isn't it funny how you can live your whole life and never even think about some people ever having had loving parents? CabbageTransformer is the product of a petri dish.

Frodo, Tiny thinks the petri dish would crack six-ways from Sunday. Tiny thinks a bird crapped on a rock and the sun hatched him.
