The Senate Theater of Absurd: Just ask Spartacus, the plays the thing

Written By | Sep 29, 2018

WASHINGTON: So much of Democratic Party politics involves playacting. That was certainly the case during the Senate confirmation hearings for US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. A process that is little less than the theater of the absurd as the Senate Judiciary Committee, particularly Democrats forget the adage of trust but verify in listening to Christina Blasey Ford. That and the law of the land, you, and Brett Kavanaugh, are innocent until proven guilty.

But all Judge Kavanaugh had was the absurdity of attempting to defend against a negative. An allegation impossible to disprove. That and the image of Corey Booker in the Senate Theater of the Absurd production of “I am Spartacus.”

All the theatrics came in a desperate attempt to save the Democrat party’s dying authoritarian ideology and preserve its decades-old, white-knuckled grip on the high court.

Democrats and their media propagandists used women whose haunted pasts come from a sad mixture of binge drinking and bad personal choices; a hatchery for hazy memories recently honed and weaponized to smear an innocent man.




The left keeps telling us they are the embodiment of “compassion.” But the lengths to which they will go to hold power, and the tortured souls they are willing to exploit in its name, belies their loud and clownish virtue signaling.

No, I’m Spartacus!

Speaking of which, the buffoon Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) even described his role in the Kavanaugh passion play as his “Spartacus moment.” The real Spartacus led a slave revolt in ancient times that ended when Roman legions under the command of Marcus Crassus defeated the slave army in 71 BC and then crucified 6,000 of them along the road from Capua to Rome.

Cory Booker, on the other hand, reached the oxygen-free heights of stupidity without any real threat to life or limb. As President Trump later noted in his theatrical review of Booker’s performance, not only is the senator not Spartacus, Booker isn’t even Kirk Douglas who played the rebel gladiator on the big screen in 1960.

And not one Democrat was harmed on the Senate Judiciary Road to Roma Ridiculous.

And that is the point.

Cory Booker and other Democratic members on the Senate Judiciary Committee were made to look like fools for playing roles parceled out to them by post-modern feminism. The kind of feminism practiced by those who believe they are actress Elisabeth Moss playing red-cloaked June Osborne in “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

Staying in character

In their imaginary world, America is the dystopian Republic of Gilead. In fact, female protesters dressed like June Osborne actually stood in silent vigil outside the committee hearing room.

But post-modern feminism has a new star.

It’s Professor Christine Blasey Ford. Her Senate Theater of the Absurd play is one of the alcohol-drenched recollections coaxed to the surface by means of psychological nudging.




The quavering voice of Blasey Ford and the railroading of Brett Kavanaugh

Memories no one in the real world is willing to verify.

And that explains the passionate defense of Ford’s Senate Theater of the Absurd fantasy world by Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii). She told the nation’s male population, skeptical as to the veracity of Ford’s unsubstantiated charge,

“I just want to say to the men in this country: Just shut up and step up. Do the right thing for a change.”
In dire need of some mansplaining

And it’s a testament to the low testosterone levels among male GOP lawmakers that they failed to provide much-needed stage direction by mansplaining to Sen. Hirono and her fellow actors.

Reality trumps fantasy all the livelong day, whether these flights of fancy come from the fevered imagination of Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker or Professor Christine Blasey Ford.

Shakespeare famously said “All the World’s a stage,” but warned its players:

“Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”
