Really Stupid or Just Pretending? (RR)

(Mar. 25, 2020) — “Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to ‘The Pulse of the Nation,’ the place to hear it here first. We’ve received an inordinate number of questions regarding Democratic Strategists, whether they are really, in truth, as stupid as they seem to be or is it some kind of game to enslave the gullible into believing a system of government – Socialism – is the solution that the lazy can use as an excuse for their total abject failures in life? Good question and so, to put the record straight, we’ve gone to the source, Professor Zorkophsky, the eminent professor of Psychology and the perennial best-selling author of texts and fiction alike, to get a straight and informed answer. Welcome to ‘The Pulse,’ Professor Zorkophsky.”

“Thank you, Roving, for such a glowing introduction. And isn’t it a coincidence that today is the release date of my latest book, ‘Fairy Tales for Adults: the definitive answer why FREE isn’t FREE? And, please, Roving, you can address me as ‘Zork’ as long as we’re in my relaxing office. By the way, I’ve made an added attraction that I know you’ll be interested in.”

“Oh, really? Give me a clue.”

“A Gravitational Wave Detector that I designed myself, see?”

“Looks like a wristwatch.”

“It is a wristwatch, but it also detects gravity waves originating from the Big Bang which, if you think about it, was silent.”

“Isn’t that nice? So, Zork, is there a connection between your book and stupidity, specifically Democratic Strategists?”

“Yes, directly related. Let’s take the position that a Democratic Strategist is a normal person and can think for themselves, and, if that’s the case, what they’re doing is trading their conscience for money, which is a real cop-out, something like acting like a traitor.”

“Certainly not all of them are normal?”

“No, not all. Actually, the burnout rate is the highest of any profession, so what we’re left with are really stupid people telling us what’s good for us. Imagine, if you will, taking whatever comes out of The View at face value; why, we would still be discussing the Russian Collusion Hoax and Ukrainian Quid Pro Quo.”

“So these Democratic Strategists are really stupid people, and not actors just pretending they’re stupid beyond belief?”

“The dumbest of the lot, no doubt about it; not even a scintilla of doubt.”

“So what’s the connection between your book, ‘Fairy Tales for Adults’ and Democratic Strategists?”

“In Chapter Three I explain the relationship between an evangelist, a used car salesman and a Democratic Strategist.”

“Okay, so what’s the connection?”

“The connection is the power of belief, that’s what. If you believe, I mean truly believe, then pushing whatever you’re pushing is a piece of cake. Take Billy Graham, for instance. He really believed that you could change from being a bad person to becoming a good one. Why, just look at yourself, Roving. You used to drink and go to bars but you haven’t had a drop in twenty years and it’s been thirty since you did any drugs.”

“That’s true.”

“Now a different animal altogether is the used car salesman: show me one who didn’t knowingly sell a dangerously defective car and I’ll show you a bridge in Brooklyn. Which leaves us to the Democratic Strategist: the ultimate excuse-maker; the crème de la crème of tall tales; the wolf after ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ (2:47).”

“That bad?”

“Yes, unfortunately: bereft of conscience. What do you say we talk about gravity, shall we?”

“We’ve a little time left, so go ahead.”

“Our archeologists are uncovering (pun intended) all kinds of information on a daily basis from everywhere around the world. Many of the artifacts that they discover are pictures and glyphs of all sorts that we, as of today, haven’t been able to decipher, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to read them in a hundred, or even a thousand years from now.”

“Yes, that’s why it’s so important to preserve what we find, isn’t that right?”

“Yes, that is correct, which is why the destruction of cultural heritage sites are such a mindless waste. I could list them* but we all know what I mean. Now, as I was saying, there are many fairy tales that may have bases of fact and one of them was the idea of a ‘Magic Carpet Ride’ (4:20), which got me interested in gravity waves.”

“So you’re into flying carpets?”

“Well, gravity and how – or if – we can control it.”

“And with that it’s time for us to be signing off and so, on behalf of the crew and Zork, this is your Roving Reporter (RR) wishing you all a goodnight: Goodnight.

“Good show. Burger time: my treat.”

[*list them: it was the Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to dynamite the pyramids in Egypt and to destroy all the Egyptian artifacts that depicted a human, or even half human, such as Seth, the god of chaos.]

Poor Little Fool” (2:30)
