The other night the Imperial Military Historian, LC Crunchie K.o.E., and ourself were talking about how decidedly unfunny it is to, after years of warning about just exactly how this Ogabe idjit would turn out, be able to bring out the We Told You So Drums™ and start banging them. It’s not much consolation while the entire country is collapsing, but it’s all we’ve got.

Ah yes, back in the days whenever any mention of just exactly how it all ends and always has ended when you let a socialist take over brought on a storm of “don’t be silly”, “that’s just paranoid”, “nothing but extremist paranoia” and so on and so forth.

And that’s just how our own side reacted to such “unhelpful, Visigothy, hobbity and uncivil” predictions about the Ogabe Utopia of Next Tuesday™.

After all, what do those of us who’ve studied history, who had done our homework on the unknown junior Senator from Illinois and, in some cases, have even lived in Utopias of Next Tuesday™ know about anything?. Just shut up and get in line and be helpful here instead of gumming up the pragmatic job of “getting things done” in DC.

But lately, even the most deaf of the “go along to get along, he’s just a well-intentioned fool in over his head” crowd are beginning to wake up and, predictably, acting so very very surprised by it all. Because who could possibly have foreseen???

The Gibson story, with its hook of endangered forests and evil manufacturing giants stripping the land, was a perfect fit. But I don’t think many of us imagined that even the Obama administration would be so blatant as to simply launch a police state style attack on a company which supported their enemies while leaving friendly, Democrat donating competitors alone. Or at least I didn’t.

No, Jazz, you didn’t. In spite of a bunch of those of us on your side, or at least we thought that we were on the same side, telling you and others like you just exactly that.

But “la-la-la I can’t hear you!” was the kindest response we got out of the willfully deaf wing of the party.

Really, it’s not rocket science.

On one hand we have a GOP donor getting slammed with bogus bullshit charges. On the other hand, we have an NSDWP donor manufacturing the exact same product using the same exact raw materials that Gibson was being persecuted for using, yet they don’t get as much as inconvenienced over it.

Who could have possibly seen that?

Well, we could, for one, back in August of 2011.

A belated welcome to the party, Jazz, just file this for future reference:
