Snowden Damage?

Well what would a four day weekend be without political levity, right.

Tubularsock just can’t let this degree of raw stupidity go by without comment. It is just too fun!

As most Tubularsock readers know I have not had a TV for over forty years now so to trace this down I had to go into the never-never-land of CNN. And trace down Candy Crowley who happens to be (my first time viewing her style) one of the worst ask-nothing-challenging commentators I have ever seen. God she is boring!

And it wasn’t easy to find what I was looking for on the net without many stops along the way but perseverance does pay off. Even for a joke!

Now the interview or was it a kiss General Dempsey’s ass? Ok, the kiss General Martin Dempsey ass exchange was a grueling excursion into rehearsed-bull-shit-personified. 

For those of you that don’t know, General Martin Dempsey is a short little prick who happens to be the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. And Candy Crowley is either a large boned woman or fat CNN commentator who is still holding down her job as a propagandist for the corporate/governmental play-like-news-show.

Part of the interview was the “try to make this prick Dempsey look human” part. The set up was the staged casual chit-chat about Dempsey’s Fourth of July where he sang the Star Spangled Banner or one of those disgusting tunes at some opening of a ball game.

Tubularsock will admit right here that after watching that I immediately checked the web to see if there were any openings in al-Qaeda. 

Then there was the sit down kiss-ass session and it ran like drivel down a prescribed trivial track. How two people can say so much nothing for so long is an art form in itself.

But finally in the last 2 or 3 minutes, wouldn’t you know, came what I was searching for

and here is the transcript with Tubularsock’s thoughts:

CROWLEY:  I need to ask you about the damage you believe Edward Snowden has done.

(who assumed Snowden did any damage except expose the truth?)

DEMPSEY:  There has been damage.  I don’t think we actually have been able to determine the depth of that damage.

(this is the classic, I don’t have a clue statement)

CROWLEY:  Because honestly, you know, people look at it and you think, I figured people were monitoring phone calls of terrorists.

(NO! HONESTLY, people look at it and say, those fuckers are listening in on ME!)

DEMPSEY:  Yes.

(we are on script.)

CROWLEY:  So how – why is it damaging to now kind of know that?

(gee, Candy because they have been lying to us AND YOU ONLY STILL “KIND-OF-KNOW-THAT”?)

DEMPSEY:  Well, I think it’s always, you know, you always have our adversaries always believe more of us than – often believe more of us than we might actually be able to accomplish.  This actually puts a degree of granularity on it that allows them now to change their tactics. (Come now, the only people that haven’t kept up with this spying is the frightened American public. BUT THE KEY TO THIS RESPONSE IS THE ATTEMPTED COVER UP …… GOSH WE CAN’T DO ALL YOU THINK WE CAN DO. IN THIS CASE HOWEVER, THEY CAN AND THEY ARE STILL DOING IT!)

And it’s also – you’ve heard me speak often about the basis of relationships and the importance of trust. (NOW THIS IS THE PART THAT HAS CAUSED ME TO WRITE THIS ENTIRE BLOG! OUR SPYING ON OUR ALLIES AND WHAT THEY ARE DOING HAS DAMAGED “TRUST”? 

THE BASIS OF RELATIONSHIP IS TRUST SO WE TRUST OUR ALLIES SO MUCH THAT WE SPY ON THEM? 

DOES DEMPSEY  EVER LISTEN TO HIMSELF?)

And it’s – you know it has undermined a bit of that.  What we’re –

A BIT OF THAT?

CROWLEY: With other nations you mean?

(no Candy, with the Martians landing for Christ’s sake!)

DEMPSEY:  Yes, yes, of course.  We’ll work our way back.  But it has set us back temporarily.

(SURE HONEY, I’VE BEEN SLEEPING WITH THE NEIGHBOR BUT TRUST ME IT’S ONLY GOING TO BE TEMPORARILY.)

So Tubularsock feels better just going off. And may I remind you that the brain cell damage from your TV set is dangerous to your being. And no ……. both the History Channel and NPR are just repackaged SHIT.

MAY THE FORCE NOT BLOW YOU OVER, LUKE.

  2. I am not dumbed down by the ‘telly’ either. I do my own research, not to mention I tend to think for myself and it if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

    Thank you! I loved this! I am going to have to read more of your writings. I like your style!
