Liberals Jumping the Shark

The radical liberal lefts have completely jumped the shark.  OK, “jump the shark” refers to one of the original crazy moments of American television.  It was a moment so contrived that it pretty much just wrecked an entire very successful series. I remember it well:

That was my very first “wtf” moment. I didn’t get it. A guy who was raised in the city, rode motorcycles, and rarely did anything more physically demanding than uttering “whooaaa” was suddenly an accomplished skier who could jump ramps over a shark who knew enough to stay inside the buoys. It was contrived. It wasn’t real. It didn’t work at all. It marked the beginning of the end for Happy Days.

Now, 40 years later, that logic isn’t lost on younger generations. For example, this happened during Trump’s Inauguration:

OK, she’s teetering on the verge of a nervous breakdown, at the eight second mark she looks directly at the camera to make SURE they are ready, then has a total meltdown for all the world to see.  That clip got plenty of airplay.  However, the rest of the interview hasn’t so much:

Now, the problem I see here, is she is obviously not capable of dealing with national issues that don’t go her way.  People are referring to these people as buttercups.  The person holding the Mussolini poster behind her probably isn’t doing much better dealing with modern events.  There have been all sorts of goofball whacked out “protests” over the majority of states in this country choosing a President that Hollywood didn’t approve of.  What our buttercup here doesn’t get is the actions of her, and Hollywood, ARE the reason their candidate of choice didn’t get elected in the first place.  We don’t want our children being so fragile they can’t cope with an election that occurs every four years.  I have had to endure their candidates of choice my entire life.  We had Carter being visited by aliens, Clinton staining intern’s dresses, and Obama proclaiming the virtues of terrorists, drug dealers, and Muslims while lambasting everything the United States’ stood for.  That, buttercup, is why we have a President Trump.  All the temper tantrums in the world by people incapable of dealing with the reality that their extreme views are not the norm will not change the fact that we live in a republic, not a democracy, and just because everyone in Los Angeles votes for one of their own preferred political party doesn’t determine the fate of the country.

This won’t be my only post referencing the loony left jumping the shark.  It’s just too easy entertainment.

The agony of defeat

When I was growing up, and for most of my life, the agony of defeat was epitomized by the opening sequence of Wide World of Sports.  Everyone remembers that sequence:

For 50 years, Vinko Bogataj crashing on the sky jump was the epitome of the agony of defeat.  It was pretty much assumed nothing could ever look worse.

As of this weekend, he’s been replaced:

I have no idea what their problem is, or for that matter even what their gender is, but it must be horrific.  Given all the insane leftist rhetoric over the last few months, I can only imagine what they’re thinking. ( Think I’m exaggerating?   Which one is the sanest, Ashley Judd claiming Trump has wet dreams about his daughter,

Or, Madonna spewing profanities suggesting she wanted to blow up the White House:

We got a real bunch of winners here.  Considering how extreme the rhetoric has gotten, I’m kind of surprised all the peaceful protestors destroyed were the buildings housing two of Hillary Clinton’s faithful donors.
