Lame Kids vs. Cool Kids

There’s nothing the lame kids in junior high school ever wanted more than to have one of the cool kids acknowledge them, or say something nice. Such was the power an acknowledgement or kind word, since it might offer a path out of lameness and into coolness. It is in this context that our opponents behavior seems to be increasingly falling into:

“The president should stand up” on gun issues, Bloomberg said in an appearance Tuesday on “The Rachel Maddow Show.” He added, “It’s one of the issues he can build a legacy on.”

Strategically, I’m pretty indifferent to how this goes. If Obama tries to “build his legacy” on gun control, I can see a path to devastate our opponents. If Obama says nothing, that in itself will devastate our opponents. While we certainly do not have them check mated, I think it’s safe to declare “check.” There is a path forward for them, I think, but it’s one they won’t take, probably because they can’t take it.

    I dont have anything intelligent to say, so let me say this about that: Bloomberg is a flaming ass nugget. Maddow is about the most “handsome” woman I’ve ever had the misfortune of seeing.

    Here is the path forward.
    1. Submit BS legislation that you know will die in committee.
    2. Blame GOP for the lack of new laws.
    3. Use the next act by a madman to grandstand and repeat step one.
    4. Repeat steps 1,2,3 until you have the senate, the house, and the whitehouse under your control. Ram though legislation just like the healthcare bill, cap and trade in the house, fiscal reform, the start treaty, the stimulus. Suffer losses at the next election and them blame the GOP all over again.
