Ever more 1984

The USA is moving closer to Soviet-style ritual denunciations. I don’t know about you, but I am rather looking forward to the emotional catharsis of a good Two-Minute Hate.

The House voted to set aside a privileged resolution aimed at condemning the stone on Perry’s ranch offered earlier in the day by an impassioned Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL).

Earlier in the day, Jackson read his resolution on the floor. It called on the House to:

“Condemn Texas Governor Rick Perry for using a secluded West Texas hunting camp as a place to host lawmakers, friends and supporters on hunting trips at a place known by the name painted in block letters across a large, flat rock standing upright at its gated entrance called ‘N*****head.'”

So, Congress has no problem with pharmaceutical corruption, handing two of every three Texas jobs to immigrants, and blowing millions, if not billions, on educating illegal aliens, but using land on which sits a politically incorrect rock, that’s legitimate national business demanding Congressional attention.
