Ever in search of votes from the uninformed, the Dumbocrats from Wormtongue on down have been busy championing hikes in the minimum wage. They always eliminate jobs, as employers seek to balance out their business models to fit the new new government regulations.
Comes McDonald’s hamburger joints with their balancing act: more automation. Soon you’ll be touch-screening away to order your burger-n-fries rather than talking to a live person. Until the Dumbos start calling for more pay for software.
Meanwhile the Queen of Benghazi, insisting that her party’s minimum wage goals won’t kill jobs, accurately assessed the state of the economy when she famously added “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.”
Certainly not anymore, thanks to her and her political cronies.

UPDATE: The Vietnamese, ironically perhaps, favor capitalism more than Americans do: “Vietnam’s advantage is that its own parasites haven’t had a chance to start spinning much of a web yet. Ours, on the other hand, have been at it for decades.”
Why, indeed. The Dems will say it’s her turn. They’ll ignore the rest:
“She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? She’s certainly busy, busy and ever on the move — with the tunnel-vision workaholism of someone trying to blot out uncomfortable private thoughts. . . . ”
What has she ever done for anyone except thieve and lie?
Even as secretary of state, she just mailed it in. Benghazi should have destroyed her, or at least her subsequent tantrum about it before Congress. But they won’t. The Democrat media will never remind voters of either event nor ask her any tough questions. She’s one of them, after all.
As for the voters, well, here’s where it gets really cynical: she’s got a uterus, and to millions of unthinking, low-info sister uteri, that is plenty enough. I know several of them.
Plus, of course, she has money and pow-wer, via Slick Willie and their corrupt, tax-evading family foundation. When it comes to the IRS, Democrats walk.
Marco Rubio and most of the other Republicans took the Hildabeast through one boring boilerplate recitation after another at yesterday’s senate hearing on Benghazi. No wonder they can’t win the presidency. As my mother-in-law said of Romney before he was nominated: “No balls.”
Which goes double for McCain, the first loser to King Scold.
Whatever you think of his Texas father (and I don’t think much) young Rand Paul of Kentucky was the only one with any guts who simultaneously sounded intelligent:
“I’m glad that you’re accepting responsibility,” Paul said to our multiple cuckolded secretary of state whose idea of taking responsibility is mouthing empty words with a furrowed brow but without suffering any consequences.
“I think that ultimately with your leaving, you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11. And I really mean that. Had I been president at the time, and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens [requesting more security], I would have relieved you of your post. I think it’s inexcusable.”
It is but it won’t stop her from running for president in 2016. Meanwhile, next up on the Democrat state department responsibility-with-no-consequences circuit: the Catsup King, better known as Lurch, who may finally show us his magic hat.
Our secretary of, ahem, state compares the Palestinian “culture of hate” with Israeli settlements in Samaria and Judea, as though the two were comparable. She also continues to call the East Jerusalem apartment buildings in a Jewish neighborhood near the Knesset “settlements.”
Which she knows they are not. All, apparently, to back up her obfuscating, prevaricating boss who is still trying to get the anti-Jewish Iranian mullahs to talk to him. Give it a rest, Shrillary. You make Biden look smart.
The misSpeaker is really giving Hilarity a run in the lying department.
When the Hildabeast runs out of chatter, this is waiting in the wings to be loaded on the B-2 and B-52.
Now there’s a thought. I will say that Sarah could, most definitely, give Hillary a run for her money.
UPDATE: Now, even Michael Reagan thinks his dad has been reincarnated as a woman from Alaska.
