Politico: Of Course Bush's Funeral Was All About Trump. Everything With Us Shriveled DC Obsessives Is Always About Trump. He Gives Purpose to Our Empty Useless Lives.

I will certainly say that some passive-aggressive feminine men consider it an "art" to attack someone passive-aggressively, with plausible deniability, with deceit.

Why this sort of sneaky, bitchy dishonest attack should be considered A Higher Form of Insult than honestly telling someone you have a problem with them, I don't know.

But these guys are full of rage, and yet afraid to take a hit. I notice Bill Kristol thinks his passive-aggressive shit is very elevated, indeed.


The service was replete with praise for the 41st president that could, with just the slightest nudge of interpretation, be heard as implied rebuke of the 45th president. But only implied, never explicit--this, unlike almost everything else in American politics today, was not about Donald Trump.

And yet it very much was. Speakers rhapsodized about Bush's natural good cheer and optimism; his willingness to share credit and accept blame; his preference for self-deprecating humor; his gift for personal diplomacy; his loyalty to friends when they were down; his talent at assembling international coalitions; his mistrust of "unthinking partisanship"; his inaugural address in which he said that Americans must judge our lives by kindness to friends and neighbors rather than the pursuit of "a bigger car, a bigger bank account"; his commitment to truth and to living up to the obligations of a "gentleman."

Who wouldn't admire these traits? Or expect that any president should try to emulate them?

Did the Elder Bush eat a dog, or refrain from eating a dog?

Because Obama ate a dog.

To be political while sounding apolitical is a lost art in contemporary times, and it would be hard for President Trump to claim injury because his name was never mentioned. President George W. Bush--who, like his father, broke with his party in not supporting Trump--swerved skillfully around that by starting his remarks by thanking "distinguished guests" and then, with seeming emphasis, adding "including our presidents and first ladies" but mentioning none of them by name.

Oh shut the fuck up, you sissy.

Michelle Malkin called out the press for this passive-aggressive, femmy-bitchy habit of degradation disguised as "elevation:"

The Washington Post's lead article on Bush's passing bemoaned: "'Honorable, gracious and decent': In Death, Bush Becomes a Yardstick for President Trump." Yes, it's a virtue-signaling yardstick to wallop Trump with in hopes of beating him into Beltway media submission.

Over at CNN, correspondent Jamie Gangel derided Trumpís somber visit to the U.S. Capitol to pay his respects as Bush 4'ís casket arrived at the rotunda to lie in state. Gangel trashed Trump's ceremonial salute to Bush as "theatrical" and rejected veteran Beltway commentator David Gergenís assessment that Trump deserved credit for his decorum.

"I'm concerned that we shouldn't give credit to someone for not kicking dirt on the grave of a person who just passed away," said Jeffery Engel, rebuking Gergen during an interview with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper. (Yes, thatís the same Cooper who demonstrated his commitment to civil discourse by infamously mocking Tea Party conservatives by using a degrading slang term for an oral-sex act -- also in an interview with poor David Gergen.)

Letís stop pretending and give the historical whitewash a rest. This isnít about celebrating "civility.Ē It's about weaponizing "civility.'
