The Democrats once again prove themselves to be the Stupid Party™ with a press release which can charitably be called totally freakin’ nuts:
The White House this weekend announced that President Bush received good news during his annual physical. Doctors pronounced the President to be in â€œsuperiorâ€ physical condition, which media reports attributed to his rigorous, six day a week exercise routine. While President Bush has made physical fitness a personal priority, his cuts to education funding have forced schools to roll back physical education classes and his Administrationâ€™s efforts to undermine Title IX sports programs have threatened thousands of womenâ€™s college sports programs.
â€œPresident Bushâ€™s [sic] has dropped the ball when it comes to fully funding physical education in public schools and womenâ€™s athletic programs at the college level,â€ said Democratic National Committee spokesman Josh Earnest. â€œHis personal habits indicate that physical fitness is not just fun and games for him. Donâ€™t our kids deserve the same opportunities to be physically fit? President Bush should stop running from his responsibility and make sure that all American children have access to physical fitness programs.”
The proper reaction to that is WTF?! I mean W. T. F’ing. F.
Yes, that’s right folks, according to the DNC, you need a government program to make kids exercise. Yup, it takes a village to make a fat kid go outside rather than trying to unlock the hidden sex scenes in Grand Theft Auto – or more accurately, it takes several million dollars of Uncle Sam’s money. Not to mention the fact that physical education programs tend to be little more than a waste of time that should be spent on more valuable subjects.
If the Democrats really think it takes a federal program to encourage kids to exercise, I would gladly volunteer my services for a fat federal contract to start the GET YOUR FLABBY BUTT OFF THE COUCH AND GO RUNNING Program (GYFBOTCAGR). I’ll even do it for the bargain basement price of $10 million…
And don’t get me started on the disastrous effects of Title IX’s cosmetic kowtowing to radical feminists – I’ll let the College Sports Council do that.
We are happy to hear that President Bush enjoys good health, and we wish him continued good health as we proceed to work with him when we can, and in loyal oppostition when we feel we must, for the good of the nation we all cherish.
Then again, that would require the Democratic Party to have possession of their faculties, rather than in the grip of a near-terminal case of Bush Derangement Syndrome.
Look, if the Democrats want to be treated as a serious political party, they need to start acting like one. And making childish, immature, and idiotic potshots at the President is not the way to do it – especially not at a time of war. If the Democrats want to sit at the adult’s table, it’s best they stop throwing food around.
