Event Horizon

At Ricochet, Dave Carter writes, “Optimists say that it’s always darkest just before the dawn. Having watched a fair number of sunrises, however, I’ve concluded that it’s always darkest just before it’s pitch black:”

I checked the latest headlines on the magic phone. Steven Colbert testifying before Congress; a DOJ official exposes apparent racial bias in the New Black Panther case; Iran’s goofy little dinner jacket is on his annual pilgrimage to New York where he disgraces pretty much everything; unemployment creeps upward while the administration vilifies job creators; and the Commander in Chief demonstrates his commitment to national security by saying that we can absorb another terrorist attack. There seems to be a growing back-log of insults to our intelligence and assaults on our liberty.

The good news is that like a great many other things, this too shall pass. And the voters shall begin administering the elixir in November.

In contrast, John Kerry believes that, you know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don’t, you’ll never understand all the wonderful things the 111th Congress have done for you.
