Doublethinking...

Nobody’s Opinion: This weekend on C-Span, I was watching Pat (football hero who gives up millions to serve country only to be killed by friendly fire) Tillman’s family and little Jessica, (The I was just riding in the desert caravan, got lost, and blown up, then raped.) Lynch, who were trying to find answers from a Senatorial committee about why they were used in a huge propaganda campaign as heroes in order to get support for the “war.”

After all, how are we EVER going to believe a thing the government says, if they continue to abuse and lie to us...the people?

The Senators all gave weak answers, thanked all the victims for coming, but on the whole we once again saw a lot of Bart Simpson’s senatorial frontal nudity.

What they SHOULD have said was this:

“We must admit that we now use the much practiced and well-established form of every government, which is simply the world of doublethink. (or doublespeak) Get use to it.”

Doublethink-----

To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which canceled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process toe the process itself-that the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the world “doublethink” involved the use of doublethink.”----1984

Doublethink was used by all the candidates at last week's democratic debates.

Doublethink was used last weekend by President George Bush at the University of Miami.

Doublethink is used by Rosie O’Donnell, Alex Baldwin, and Ahmadinejad.

Doublethink is used by the Pentagon.

Doublethink was used by the Senators at Pat Tillman’s hearing.

Doublethink was used on my latest property tax assessment.

And Hillary Clinoton, a master of doublethink, said last weekend that we could use a Bi-lingual President.

We already have one, Hillary…you’d better doublethink that.
