I’m Gay! I’m Hispanic! I’m Female! Meanwhile…..

So the Supreme Court of California upheld a law thus reinforcing the will of the people and that’s noteworthy only because the court has made such a consistent practice of making laws rather than interpreting them. There will be lawsuits. There will be outrage.

I don’t care.

So President Obama was utterly predictable and picked a Supreme Court nominee driven by identity politics that, SURPRISE!, helps him in his quest to mollify Hispanic voters since sweeping amnesty might be a tough sell since he’s also in bed with the unions–a triangulation that I’ve seen as a Democrat problem for quite some time. He was going to nominate a looney lib and she fits the bill quite nicely. It’s not about the law. It’s about me. Wheeeee!

I don’t care.

North Korea flexing it’s mentally ill muscle and conducting a sophisticated display of weaponry as a sales job on Memorial Day while the President plays his fiddle, I mean, plays a round of golf–now that I care about. A lot.

Iran sending a fleet of ships out while Israel girds herself for war while the President plays a round of golf–now that I care about. A lot.

Yes, I’m concerned that an activist will be on the Supreme Court, but I don’t see what can be done about it. Will the Senate Republicans mount the will to stop this nomination? Maybe.

Yes, the California Supreme Court made a weasely decision that kicks the problem down the road for the time being.

In the midst of this haggling, the world is on the edge of conflagration. Meanwhile, the president plays golf and issues weak statements. Who ever thought that a Supreme Court nominee could be a diversion but damn skippy if that’s not the case today.

When I look at the frenzy swirling around, I can’t help but to wonder about the confusion. It’s like trying to find one’s way in a sand storm. What really is the most important story? What will most likely change the course of history?

I fear that looking back, we’ll see the this time as a steady march toward chaos with the most important concerns ignored.

Don’t look now, but Swine Flu is spreading.
