There’s a new truther bandwagon pulling into the station, if, in fact, bandwagons pull into stations but that’s neither here nor there. Recently, a pregnant woman fainted at the White House while the President was holding a ACA press event. According to this week’s “honoree”Dr. Sharon Schuetz it’s part of some deep dark plot:
For some strange reason, Obama has to have props around him when he does
one of his con-jobs in the Rose Garden, or wherever he chooses to
receive his worshipers. This was no different, except that he had
animated props this time. Although it was well staged there were enough
holes in this little scene to drive the proverbial truck through.
It is obvious that there are quite a few people involved in this
latest fraud put out by the Whitehouse. Why did Obama think it was
necessary to “catch” a fainting woman just when he said the words, “To
free families from the pervasive fear that one illness…?” He said it,
and down she went. Well not actually down. She just weaved and wobbled a
little and never quite fainted. And, consequently, Obama never actually
caught her. He turned around and put his hand on her shoulder as if to
steady her and turned back to the camera to make sure it got a clear
shot of his “rescue” efforts.
You will see in the following video that the pregnant woman is
standing with a friend who is holding her hand with her arm wrapped
around her waist. That is until she starts to “faint”. Then she steps
slightly aside and never even looks at the women she is holding. She
smiles a nervous smile for the camera because she has done her part in
this extremely poorly orchestrated drama.
Schuetz is the founder of something called Lady Patriots and given their teabaggery and support for the recent shutdown, they are neither. I declined to call her Dr. more than once since she has a degree in “clinical Christian counseling” from an unlisted (on her site) school. I guess she got her doctorate in a Cracker Jack box or at some biblethumper college. If she were an MD, I’d call her a quack but since she’s not I’ll call her a malaka.
I’m not quite sure where to begin in detailing Schuetz’s malakatude but the whole thing about “props” is a good place to start. The evil, Marxist, mau mau, Nazi President didn’t invent staged photo ops or press events, they’ve been with us forever. Saint Ronnie’s media Mephistopheles, Mike Deaver, was a master of political stagecraft. He was the man behind Reagan kicking off his 1980 General Election campaign in Philadelphia, MS to send a signal to the neo-Confederates that the genial Reagan was down with the redneck homies.
I could go into some detail about Schuetz’s egregious nuttery but why expend brain cells on sheer nonsense? The mere thought gives me the vapors. Here’s the deal: pregnant women get light headed and faint even outside of the ante-bellum or post-bellum South. (Hmm, I wonder if they ever wear bellum bottoms?) And when people faint, the guy next to them catches them and prevents them from falling. It’s that simple. It takes a nasty, conspiratorial turn of mind to think that President Obama is incapable of simple human decency or of staging such an event. That’s the state of “conservatism” in America today: everything’s a plot.
Every time I take a dip into the shallow end (intellectually) of the wingnut pool I admire Tommy T even more for doing it on a regular basis. Truthers like Schuetz are toxic, browsing her site made me feel the need to be deloused and that’s why she’s the malaka of the week.
