Shorter John Hinderaker




Posted at 21:08 by Gavin M.

This might be the best he’s ever been. It’s one of those rare Hindy posts that beggar commentary and demand simply to be read and appreciated as art.

It seems Hinderaker met President Bush yesterday, as an invited guest of the White House. It seems he was favorably impressed.

Hail to the Chief

I had the opportunity this afternoon to be part of a relatively small group who heard President Bush talk, extemporaneously, for around forty minutes. It was an absolutely riveting experience. It was the best I’ve ever seen him. Not only that; it may have been the best I’ve ever seen any politician. If I summarized what he said, it would all sound familiar: the difficult times we live in; the threat from Islamic fascism–the phrase drew an enthusiastic round of applause–the universal yearning for freedom; the need to confront evil now, with all the tools at our disposal, so that our children and grandchildren can live in a better and safer world. As he often does, the President structured his comments loosely around a tour of the Oval Office. But the digressions and interpolations were priceless.

The conventional wisdom is that Bush is not a very good speaker. But up close, he is a great communicator, in a way that, in my opinion, Ronald Reagan was not. He was by turns instructive, persuasive, and funny. His persona is very much that of the big brother. Above all, he was impassioned. I have never seen a politician speak so evidently from the heart, about big issues–freedom, most of all.

I’ve sometimes worried about how President Bush can withstand the Washington snake pit and deal with a daily barrage of hate from the ignorant left that, in my opinion, dwarfs in both volume and injustice the abuse directed against any prior President. (No one accused Lincoln of planning the attack on Fort Sumter.) Not to worry. He is, of course, miles above his mean-spirited liberal critics. More than that, he clearly derives real joy from the opportunity to serve as President and to participate in the great pageant of American history. And he sees himself as anything but a lame duck, which is why he is stumping for Republican candidates around the country.

It was, in short, the most inspiring forty minutes I’ve experienced in politics.

Wow. A bit long again, though. Let’s see if we can pare it down.

Hey, ‘big brother’ was already in there, just blinking like a neon sign. Hindy knows himself on some level; there’s no denying it.

    Obviously, it was a small gathering that served very strong drinks.

    And I’ll bet Hindrocket is fond of fart jokes, so it’s an easy room.

    “…up close, he is a great communicator, in a way that, in my opinion, Ronald Reagan was not.” Doesn’t this violate the wingut 11th commandment, “Thou shalt have no gods before Ronnie”? I smell excommunication right around the corner.

    No, you twat. Bush is a HORRIBLE speaker. Speaking does not equal conversations. Any moron can hold their own in a group of a dozen or so, if you’re impressed by that, you’re an idiot.
    Even when he’s not spouting talking points, or compleatly effing this up (Q: “What did Iraq have to do with September 11?” A: “Nothing!”) He’s flat, dull, un-passioned, bored, distracted, and lame.
    I tried to watch one of his SOTU’s for school, and had to stop halfway through cause i was bored senseless.

    “And he sees himself as anything but a lame duck, which is why he is stumping for Republican candidates around the country.” Like, that guy from CT. Who he refuses to endorse.

    I get the feeling the tour could had ended with a demostration of Bush’s “Kitten Strangling Room” and Hind would have gushed about how brave he is to openly discuss the mass slaughter and drownings of hundreds of kittens. Something Reagan could have never done.

    Now, you’ll notice the Oval Office don’t have no corners! And Iraq has had about 10 ’round which we have, as a nation, turned. So you see there’s some ironical things in the world. Heh.

    Over there, behind that door is the Executive washroom. I tend to spend a lot of time there, because the universal yearning for freedom doesn’t end until the last mercy flush. These are just some of the ways I confront evil in the world if you know what I mean.

    No one accused Lincoln of planning Fort Sumpter. But for a half-century there has been a vigorous academic and non-academic debate over whether FDR — who, if memory serves, was not a conservative Republican — knew of Pearl Harbor in advance and permitted it in order to drag America into war.

    Yet this whiny little bitch thinks his Prezzy suffers the WORSE ABUSE EVER.

    This post calls for some translation:

    I had the opportunity this afternoon to be part of a relatively small group who heard President Bush talk, extemporaneously, for around forty minutes.

    TRANSLATION: Bush invited me to the White House because he knows I’m a willing tool – an unquestioning mouthpiece for his disastrous administration. And, by way of thanks for my invaluable service as a fawning boot-licker, he ad-libbed a speech.

    It was an absolutely riveting experience. It was the best I’ve ever seen him.

    TRANSLATION: George was at the top of his game. Sure, he rehashed the same old garbage we’ve all heard a million times, but his digressions and interpolations – some of them, related to the subject at hand – were a real treat.

    Not only that; it may have been the best I’ve ever seen any politician. If I summarized what he said, it would all sound familiar: the difficult times we live in; the threat from Islamic fascism–the phrase drew an enthusiastic round of applause–the universal yearning for freedom; the need to confront evil now, with all the tools at our disposal, so that our children and grandchildren can live in a better and safer world.

    TRANSLATION: He was as a handyman, wielding one of the sharpest tools of statecraft: hollow emotional manipulation. Luckily, we were handpicked for our susceptibility to such a thing, and so we applauded when he spoke of baseball, mom, and apple pie. I even cried a little.

    As he often does, the President structured his comments loosely around a tour of the Oval Office. But the digressions and interpolations were priceless.

    TRANSLATION: His homey lack of professionalism put me at ease. For the first time in my life, I knew true brotherhood.

    So this is what it’s like when doves cry.

    The conventional wisdom is that Bush is not a very good speaker. But up close, he is a great communicator, in a way that, in my opinion, Ronald Reagan was not.

    TRANSLATION: Sure, George isn’t a brilliant orator; but, for those of us with the super-secret decoder ring, he’s one helluva communicator – even better than Reagan, whose name I also like to drop when defending a weak point.

    His persona is very much that of the big brother. Above all, he was impassioned. I have never seen a politician speak so evidently from the heart, about big issues–freedom, most of all.

    TRANSLATION: If you don’t have a brain, it’s always best to speak from the heart. And, by God, that’s what the president does!

    I’ve sometimes worried about how President Bush can withstand the Washington snake pit and deal with a daily barrage of hate from the ignorant left that, in my opinion, dwarfs in both volume and injustice the abuse directed against any prior President. (No one accused Lincoln of planning the attack on Fort Sumter.)

    TRANSLATION: Look at me! I can pull a rabbit out of my hat. And check out these mirrors, and all this smoke. Whatever you do, however, don’t look at our treatment of Bill Clinton, or at least one of my main points will be revealed for the fatuous bullshit it is.

    Not to worry. He is, of course, miles above his mean-spirited liberal critics. More than that, he clearly derives real joy from the opportunity to serve as President and to participate in the great pageant of American history. And he sees himself as anything but a lame duck, which is why he is stumping for Republican candidates around the country.

    TRANSLATION: Since few others recognize his greatness, I take immeasurable comfort in the fact George has good self-esteem.

    It was, in short, the most inspiring forty minutes I’ve experienced in politics.

    ADDENDUM: My head was up George’s ass for most of it, but I was inspired by the little I did hear.

    Anyone who uses–or appaluds–the phrase “Islamo-fascism” is an idiot. Bin Laden doesn’t want to establish a fascist dictatorship, he wants to create a caliphate. But then, Bush didn’t even know the difference between Shi’ites and Sunnis when we invaded, so why should he know this?

    A Moderate visits the GOP Cheese Shop.

    MODERATE:
    Good Morning.

    MANWHORE:
    Good morning, sir. Welcome to the Conservative Party Emporium.

    MODERATE:
    Ah, thank you my good man.

    MANWHORE:
    What can I do for you, sir?

    MODERATE:
    Well, I was, uh, sitting in the public library on Strom Thurmond Street just now, skimming through “The Conscience of a Conservative� by Barry Goldwater, and I suddenly came over all peckish.

    MANWHORE:
    Peckish, sir?

    MODERATE:
    Esurient.

    MANWHORE:
    Eh?

    MODERATE:
    (In a broad Yorkshire accent) Eee I were all hungry, like.

    MANWHORE:
    Ah, hungry.

    MODERATE:
    In a nutshell. And I thought to myself, ‘a little Party ‘o Lincoln nibble will do the trick’. So I curtailed my Goldwatering activates, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance to negotiate the vending of some Conservative comestibles.

    MANWHORE:
    Come again?

    MODERATE:
    I want some Traditional Republican values.

    MANWHORE:
    Oh, I thought you were complaining about the Swastika.

    MODERATE:
    Oh, heaven forbid. I am one who delights in all manifestations of the Foremost Constitutional Emendation.

    MANWHORE:
    Sorry?

    MODERATE:
    Ah like’s a nice torchlit rally, I do.

    just kills me every time.

    MODERATE:
    A Teddy Rooseveltian limit on monopolies and corporatism?

    MANWHORE:
    …No.

    MODERATE:
    Hatred of Fascism?

    MANWHORE:
    No.

    MODERATE:
    Optimism?

    MANWHORE:
    No.

    MODERATE:
    Free speech? Freedom of religion? Freedom of assembly? Petitioning you government for redress of grievances? Clean water? Clean air?

    MANWHORE:
    No.

    MODERATE:
    A strong military, perhaps?

    MANWHORE:
    Ah! We have a strong military, yes sir.

    MODERATE:
    You do! Excellent.

    MANWHORE:
    Yes, sir. It’s, ah ….. it’s a bit Rummy.

    MODERATE:
    Oh, I like it Rummy.

    MANWHORE:
    Well, it’s very Rummy, actually, sir.

    MODERATE:
    No matter. Fetch hither le Armée Des Etats-Unis! M-mmm!

    MANWHORE:
    I think it’s a bit Rummier than you’ll like it, sir.

    MODERATE:
    I don’t care how fucking Rummy it is. Hand it over with all speed.

    The principles of Islam cannot be altered and and there is no democracy in Islam or nonsense like ‘democratic Islam’. Democracy is shirik (unbelief) and haram. Here we do not compromise. Those who claim to be Muslims and do not support Shariah one hundred per cent are all munafik and kafirs, they are out of Islam. No need to discuss with these people, they are not part of the ummat anymore.

    There is no need to listen to public opinion: kafirs, apostates, liberals, atheists – they are all non-believers …

    Just a friendly reminder from Tim Blair that your disdain for Bush and everything he stands for will make no difference when push comes to shove. Just ask Germany.

    I remember a Soviet writer who reminisced about his father, a minor functionary, who was unexpectedly called to meet Josef Stalin to talk about–I dunno, tractor production in Vladivostok, whatever his dad’s specialty was–and how his father, after the meeting, rushed home so that his son could shake the hand that had just shaken the hand of the Great Comrade.

    It’s something on which the writer can look back and marvel, now, this experience, this naiveté, while enjoying the fact that his family survived it.

    Oh, like Nixon’s, this fucking Oval Office tour is canned. Bush has done it hundreds of times. Ask Hindquarters or whatever his name is if Bush talked about the carpet (Yes!) or the paintings of Washington and Lincoln and how he remembers that those presidents prayed (Yes!).

    I do believe, Mr. Johnston, that the self-christened ‘Hindrocket’ is all about the fart jokes. Which leads one to suspect that in labelling his man-crush “a great communicator, in a way that, in my opinion, Ronald Reagan was not”, Hindrocket means “Bush let me smell his farts, which Reagan would never even have considered, since Reagan’s handlers still had *some* standards. Bush’s farts were mighty, both in volume and intensity, and I am proud to have smelled them up close and personal. If only more of our so-called leaders would let me stick my noise into their groins, how much happier a world this would be, at least for me and most of the nation’s Canine-Americans!”…

    I know I’m only a dumb Canuck, but Hinderwhatever needs a history lesson. Maj. Gen. P.G.T. Beaureguard CSA, after a four month investment of the Fort, opened an artillery barrage in the early morning hours of April 12 that lasted two days, forcing Maj. Robert Anderson USA to surrender. Why would anyone accuse Lincoln of planning the attack? I think Hindsight just wanted to get Lincoln’s name up close to Dear Leader’s in print, or something.

    Ah, Jake, since we haven’t heard from Gary for a while, maybe you can be our new resident troll. Since you are actually less intelligent than Gary, you will have your work cut out for you, but I, for one, have faith in you. A couple of tips:

    1. Nobody here gives a fuck what Tim Blair has to say.

    2. I know this will be difficult for you to realize, but the choice isn’t just between Taliban style beheading and forcing all women into burkas autocracy vs. Bush.

    And if you guys ever get Goldstein elected to Congress, I would love it if when he was debating a colleague, he said on the floor, “I touched your sister in her secret places.�

    Man, that would ROCK!

    I have never seen a picture of Hindrocket before. Is it just me or does he look like the gay dude who was supposed to be in love with Lea Thompson’s character in “Caroline in the City”?

    Also, is mustard now the new semen?

    renato,

    It’s not mine. There’s a link in my post above to the full brilliance.

    I hope AssRocket remembers to get the stains taken out of that blue dress.

    MPD, yes.

    I know, I know. It’s so wrong. But if I’d never ever heard him say anything or read anything he’d written or, uh, been exposed to his personality, I guess, he’s kind of cute, in a fixer-upper kind of way. I’m so ashamed.

    It’ll never happen, anyway. I’m a slut but I haven’t fucked a conservative in *years*. Not even for money.

    Which thread about Greenwald? There’s just so many of them…

    Retardo didn’t even write this post…

    Wow, assrocket’s comments sound EXACTLY like Clownhall Kathleen Parkwhore’s account of the same event. It’s almost like the White House wrote it for them and handed it out. Come to think of it, that’s EXACTLY what they did.

    Err… Love the blog, love the dissection of Assrocket, but there is a minor false premise in your lead-in. You wrote:

    It seems Hinderaker met President Bush yesterday, as an invited guest of the White House.

    Actually, the Hindemost saw Bush work the room at a private political fundraiser here in Minnesota. Alas, Toilet Buttcomber lives less than 5 miles from me, hence the extensive water filtration system in my house and the air purifiers in every room. Putting Assrocket, Chimpy and other likeminded wankers in the same room is probably what causes Minnesota frogs to grow extra legs.
