Shock the Monkey


Shock the monkey to life
Shock the monkey to life

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know when you're going to shock the monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life

Over the past week the  Obama Administration's 'Perfect Storm' has come ashore pummeling the President, his staff, and every one's favorite DC lackey, Jay Carney. 
.
Storm Front #1:  'Inconvenient testimony' from government employees with first-hand knowledge of Benghazi's 9 / 11 Attack is relayed to Congress (by people who actually voted for President Obama.)
 .
Storm Front #2:  The Department of Justice admits monitoring Associated Press telephone records in order to find out who in the Administration has been 'leaking information' to reporters within the AP.
 .
Storm Front #3:  The IRS admits that staffers 'targeted Conservative groups' tax filings.  America learns that words like "TEA Party", and "Patriots" are code for "Audit US now".     
 .
 
 .
The question is, of course, will anyone 'get wet' as a result of the convergence of the three simultaneous storm fronts referenced above?

The President admits that he first learned of several of the above scandals by listening to news reports of them.  Interestingly enough, the only news network going anywhere near Benghazi prior to last Friday was Fox News.   I guess we know what the President is watching when he's not golfing or campaigning...   (roughly eight minutes per day)
.
Or perhaps, he has 'people' watch Fox for him?  I say this because there is so much which gets past this man - he may need to hire more-attentive stooges to fill him in on the State of the Nation.  When asked specifically about a scandal, or wrong-doing within his Administration he instinctively falls back to the, "Well, I've not actually heard about this first-hand - we'll look into it and get back to you...  I've just learned of this via news reports..."
.
Really?  News reports?  O-k-a-y... 
.
The Associated Press leadership had to release something (presumably to themselves?) on their DOJ in-house monitoring situation since THEY were the ones for whom the First Amendment no longer 'existed'. 
.
The great thing about the current Administration is that the Constitution is VERY flexible!  It didn't used to be quite so limber back in the 'bad old days', but under the constant tutelage of President Obama, Eric Holder, and a cast of literally THOUSANDS of fearless Federal employees, the Nation's Law of the Land is now more limber and pliable than Gumby...  following a week-long Vodka binge.
.

.
Oh, and those Conservative Groups who were being targeted by the IRS because they dared to question our Nation's Leadership?  I guess the fact that they WERE targeted pretty much confirms their suspicions that the Obama Administration is corrupt, tyrannical, over-reaching, and autocratic.  Yes, they've learned that their suspicians were really, really, really, well-founded.  But between you and me, THEY should have known better - they've been telling US about Barry for years.  Don't they read their own press releases?  
.
Barack Obama is a 'bad President' surrounded by 'worse' people because THEY ('worse people') work UNDER the radar.  President Obama has the Press following him around like a pack of trained collies clamoring for the attention of the President, that Biscuit-Weilding dog trainer of a guy.  The President's minions don't normally get a second glance from the Press Corps - the real story is what the President 'says' - not what he, or his Administration 'does'.  The problem for President Obama is that beginning last Friday, the Collies showed their teeth for a brief moment and more than a few people sat up for the first time and watched out here in TV Land.
.
How long with the "Hell Hounds" of the Press Corps follow upon on the Perfect Storm referenced above?  Probably about as long as a Gold Fish's memory (a government-funded scientist measured this as roughly 'three' seconds).  Sure, Fox will continue to go after the Administration's foul-ups, but the other folks with the Alphabet-soup of call letters after their names will forget the scandals and once again begin sniffing around for 'Cookies' from the Great and Powerful Obama.
.
Hey, as long as that great (pretend) News Reporter, Jon Stewart, continues to support the President, I'm sure the President will be just fine...  Don't you worry about him...
.

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know when you're going to shock the monkey

.
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life

Consider this monkey shocked...
..
President Obama needs to get some more cookies.  The dogs remain hungry.
.
Woof.  Woof.  Woof.
.
Shock the monkey to life...
