If I was going to write a vicious satire of the kind of exquisite duck-speaking that has become increasingly necessary in order to defend President Obama and his policies, I would have come up with… this. The only change would be in that I wouldn’t call myself a black guy, obviously.
Seriously. I mean ‘duck-speaking’ in all of its Orwellian glory; cognitively speaking, that essay is a wasteland. It collapses the second you type out “corporate bailouts,” “Proposition 8,” “Zimmerman case,” “5 million thrown off of their plans because of Obamamcare,” “jobless recovery,” “does not pay his own female staffers the same as his male ones,” “Office of the President-Elect,” “BP spill,” “tried to deny veterans their own monuments,” “drone strikes and kill lists,” “resegregating the DC school system,” and “tongue-tied without his Teleprompter.” It has to be satire… but it got published in the Huffington Post.
And, dear God, the comments!
