LETTER TO THE EDITOR: An unpalatable 2016 presidential ‘menu’

Question of the Day

Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.?

Come 2016, the politically starved American voters will have to admit that they made a gross error in judgment back in 2008. Their hope for “change” and their zeal to elect a minority candidate to the highest office in the land led them to have picked the wrong man for the job for all the wrong reasons.

Then, like the man they had elected, they wrongheadedly doubled down and re-elected him because of their inability to come to grips with their own embarrassment over having been played like a ukulele by the progressive liberals. They simply wanted to cover up the fact that they made such a gross error in judgment the first time.

Now all those hungry voters who ate second helpings of 2012’s recycled, pressure-cooked “Blue State Special” will have the opportunity to gorge themselves again at the eat-for-free cafe on two offerings in 2016: the “Party Special,” a thick slab of half-baked Hillary ham, in a puddle of either congealing Benghazi gravy or Russian “reset” dipping sauce or a steaming heap of overcooked Biden hash. The latter is a dish that Democratic diners have repeatedly sent back to the kitchen for 40 years.

Sadly, the American voters’ palate isn’t currently seeing much more delectable fare across the middle of the congressional road. In the Olde GOP Po’ Boy Shoppe, Chef Reince Priebus will have to narrow down his lengthy past menu of sandwich offerings, which consisted of nothing but fried baloney lathered in mayo and served seven ways to Sunday on a dozen different rolls — mostly white.

This time around, when the politically hungry American voters step into either party’s “dining” emporium, they’d better keep their wits about them and remember the big difference between the $6 steak and the $12 one: With the $12 piece of meat, you just get a sharper knife. Bon appetit.
