Topic: "Michelle, my Belle"(7)
Frodo rarely wastes two swipes of the artist's brush in a title and a topic of similar reference, however the magnitude of the return of the Hobbit to the cathode ray tube requires something akin to fireworks across the skies. How else to emphasize an accountant's reference to "Obamacare" eleven times during the course of a concession speech? Rather than congratulate each of the seven male contenders who out-polled her, in her "Home State" no less, or to wish each of them well if not endorse one above the others, the "non-pol;itician" who has "represented" Minnesota for five completed terms left her class at the front door, again.
In the entire history of our small blue planet, no "Accountant" has ever been in a leadership position of any kind, except as one in charge of other accountants. No accountant has ever been President. No Accountant has been Secretary of State. No Accountant has been Commissioner of the National Football Leage. No Accountant has won an Academy Award. No Accountant has ever walked on the Moon.
Curiously, the so-called "universities" named after or by Jerry Falwell, Oral Roberts, or Bob Jones (among others) produce an awful lot of accountants. Michelle Bachman matriculated therein. Perhaps, as Frodo surmises, that is because accounting is taught in absolutes, and that is characteristic of these students. There are debits, or there are credits. There is no gray, or anything in between. God either said it, or he didn't. There is nothing to be interpreted.
It is a good day when one with such a simple view of life slips back into the irrelevance of accounting. One more step is taken toward the crest of Mount Doom.
It would've been a perfect day if the proverbial white woman with a stick up her butt hadn't tried to dance, again.
