You just can't make this wacko stuff up, folks.

Here's a little more for the too-bizarre-to-be-made-up category. Cass Sunstein (named after Mamma Cass? Could be.) is the Obama White house Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (aka Csar #1,239), a title vague enough for him to poke his little rat nose into just about anything. Obama and the O-bots call him a "legal scholar". People with functioning brains refer to him as "flat-out batshit crazy nutcase wacko".

Shall we take a look at what our "legal scholar" believes in? Well, for starters there's animal rights, in the radical form seen above in the PETA propaganda posters. Sunstein compares farming & ranching livestock to “a form of unconscionable barbarity not the same as, but in many ways morally akin to, slavery and mass extermination of human beings.” and wants an immediate ban of all hunting. Fishing is in line to be thrown on the chopping block, too. OF COURSE, trapping is the epitome of evil itself. A vegetarian, or vegan, or whatever the hell they're calling themselves these days, Cass wants to force all the rest of us, via government regulation, to quit eating meat as well.

He also believes that dogs are smarter than human babies and that animals have the legal "right" to sue and be represented by attorneys in a court of law. I'm thumbing through the Constitution right now and I sure can't find that "right". Quite the "legal scholar", eh. Interpreting the law apparently means just making up any ol' thing you please out of thin air. If it weren't for the Obama Administration and the Leftist press lapdogs, this clown would probably be in a padded room somewhere eating crayons.

But wait, there's more!! Jumping on the ever popular Obama Marxist "redistribution of wealth" band wagon, Cass wants to redistribute the wealth of the United States to every little dirtbag country around the world. Like that hasn't been happening for decades, anyway. It goes without saying that he's a Global Warming/Al Gore worshipper and so anti-Second Amendment that the mere sight of a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun would make him flee from the room screaming like a school girl.

Mr. Bigshot Legal Scholar also apparently wants to do away with the Supreme Court, as well."There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him," argued Sunstein.
If that kind of government isn't intrusive enough, Mr. Sunstein also thinks your body belongs to Big Brother. If Obama's death panels don't get you, Cass is coming after your internal organs, whether you're dead or alive. In some crazy book he wrote, Sunstein called this "routine removal," and posited that "the state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone's permission."

Just guessing here, but I don't think ol' Mama Cass is a Constitutionalist, Libertarian, or Christian. In fact, I don't believe he's ever read the Constitution. I'm telling you, folks, you just can't make this garbage up. This administration and its bizarre hangers-on are just plain nuts.

As for this Constitutionalist carnivore, it's opening day of the general hunting season here in Montana so, in honor of Mr. Sunstein, I think I'll go out and blast Bambi with a .30-06 and then feast on delicious backstrap butterfly venison steaks so rare and bloody that a good veterinarian could bring the critter back. Bite this, Cass.

I have to confess that I spent a bit of time checking that this was true, after all allowing for all the crazies in the world, this guy seems a little over the top.

In the real world someone this delusional would probably view himself as deserving to be in a position to initiate policy in the highest levels in the land and would probably blame the establishment or Karl Rove and the vast right wing conspiracy or such like for his failure to achieve that.

In the Obama parallel universe he is just naturally there. The worry over here is that Kevin Rudd is the sort of PM who would read this stuff and regard him as a leading intellectual.

I was immediately reminded of one of Tom Lehrers introductions to a song:

I am reminded at this point of a fellow I used to know who's name was Henry, only to give you an idea of what an individualist he was he spelt it HEN3RY. The 3 was silent, you see. Henry was financially independent having inherited his father's tar-and-feather business and was therefore able to devote his full time to such intellectual pursuits as writing. I particularly remember a heart-warming novel of his about a young necropheliac who finally achieved his boy-hood ambition by becoming coroner.

The rest of you can look it up when you get home. In addition to writing he indulged in a good deal of philosophizing. Like so many contemporary philosophers he especially enjoyed giving helpful advice to people who were happier than he was. ...

As a matter of interest, do you use the expression in America; "as mad as a cut snake?"

Sorry Jim. Never heard "mad as a cut snake" before. "Mad as a hatter" is an oldie but goodie as when they made top hats out of beaver pelts the chemicals involved, when inhaled in volume, made more than a few hatters goofy in the head. Then there's "crazy as a loon", from the call of that bird, which has to be heard to be believed.

My all-time favorite oldie is still "crazy as a pet coon". When you find and raise a baby raccoon from the wild they are all cute and cuddly for awhile then, when they get to a certain age, they turn mean as hell and go on rampages and tear everything up, including you.

As for the crazy pet coon in the article, sorry I made you look stuff up. I would have provided more links, but I figured it was already blatantly obvious that he would be pro-Global Warming or anti-gun. The scariest part is that Obama and his O-Bots and the "Mainstream" press really do regard this moonbat as some kind of towering intellectual.

It really is like a parallel universe or Bizzaro World over here these days.

Bawb, what about "crazy as a sh*thouse rat" or sometimes "crazy as a rat in tin sh*thouse?" I think they are my favorites.

Jim Fryar said...

No worries Bawb; I kind of accepted that as you said, "you just can't make this stuff up." Its just that he seemed so 'over the top' in stupidity that I just had to look him up.

I've often wondered about the loon, I've heard mention of it before.

Over here the sh*thouse rat is referred to as in cunning as ...

Rats also feature for untrustworthy people;

If well dressed they are "Flash as a rat with a gold tooth," or if bearded, "like a rat peering through a broom."

We used to say "dumber than a box of rocks" or "dumber than dirt". Through the slow evolution of the language, we now use, "Dumber than an Obama supporter".
