Gov. Chris Christie, with all his faults, is as quick as a whip and is a gifted orator. Christie can think on his feet. So, thank you, governor, for using your faculties to expose the innards of the establishment-groomed robot, Marco Rubio, to the rest. They are a blinded, willful, low-intelligence arrogant media. The sourpuss look on the face of Fox News’ Bret Bauer warms the cockles of this heart.
Have I not been telling and retelling the few who listen that:
1. TV’s teletarts (most of whom loooove and talk-up Rubio) say what they say because they’re low intelligence.
2. Are on TV because they look good and do not threaten the egos in the anchor’s chair.
Most damaging to Rubio, though, is the highlight of Fox News’s Brit Hume admitting that Christie left a mark on him–like Dan Quayle, an icon of the left’s “dumb Republican” stereotype. This comparison is a problem for Rubio, as Fox News has been a strong booster of his candidacy. This past week, primetime anchor Megyn Kelly asked Rubio if he was offended when Christie attacked him for being too scripted. Kelly gushed that Rubio was “very smooth” and “so articulate,” that his speech after a third-place finish in the Iowa caucus was “amazing.”
The Rubio robot constructed by establishmentarians to succeed to the throne has revealed its robot circuitry. The Marco Rubio news channel, Fox News, so riddled with Rubio operatives, can’t be happy that the Rubio robot broke down.
Rubio said he would “dispel once and for all with this fiction that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing.” But once became four times, setting Chris Christie up for a zinger.
“There it is. There it is,” Christie said. “The memorized 25-second speech.”
“Consistency may be a virtue—except when you’re being criticized for going rote in a field where others go rogue.”
3) By contrast, Rubio’s 4x repeat was not an act of excessive message discipline. It was a display of panic at a moment of uncertainty
Trojans, Trivora or a termination: An Americans woman has the right to purchase contraception, abortifacients and abortions, provided … she pays for them. For like herself, America is packed with many other sovereign individuals. Some of these individuals do not approve of the products and procedures mentioned. Americans who oppose contraception, abortifacients and abortion must be similarly respected in their rights of self-ownership.
Taxpayers who oppose these products and procedures have an equal right to dispense of what is theirs—their property—in accordance with the dictates of their conscience. America’s adult women may terminate their pregnancies (to the exclusion of late-term infanticide).
What America’s manifestly silly sex does not have the right to do is to rope other, presumably free Americans into supplying them with or paying for their reproductive choices. The rights of self-ownership and freedom of conscience apply to all Americans.
No Republican has ever come close to articulating the ethical elegance of a libertarian argument.
Megyn Kelly gets away with a lot of antics, so why not this one at the debate in Des Moines, Iowa? There, Kelly referred to Donald Trump as “the elephant not in the room,” and asked Sen. Ted Cruz: “What message do you think Trump’s absence sends to the voters of Iowa?”
Kelly’s question is a leading question, not a probative question, because the question suggests the answer. Hers is a bad-faith question. I wish Donald Trump’s campaign had the analytical wherewithal to point out Kelly’s despicable antics.
And you know that when CNN approvingly describes (on “Outfront,” 1/29) a Fox News anchor as a consummate professional “staying above the fray”—said anchor is likely everything but. What the Left likes about the badly behaved and unprofessional Kelly, as chronicled in the more meaty version of “The Me Myself and I Megyn Kelly Production,” is that she reflects their side.
