Bullshit Platitudes!

Wouldn’t you know it.

Tubularsock is not out to make anything Melania Trump does significant but really the way the Republican Convention is going Donald had to have Melania speak because it appears from the cancellation list Melania is the only person that will.

Anyway. She gives her speech, you know like they “all” do from the political class from the heart. Just speaking those thoughts they deeply believe and sure there may be a speech writer or two or seven but Melania spoke from her deep held beliefs of, oh say a minute ago or such.

No different from Michelle Obama really. In fact, maybe even the same speech writers for all we know.

But Melania has been accused of plagiarizing passages from Michelle’s speech from 2008.

America fucked

But here is Tubularsock’s question:

When did bullshit platitudes that Michelle spit out in 2008 and Melania spit out in 2016 become the “property” of anyone?
“. . . you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise . . .”

Sorry, but if these words were “plagiarized” Michelle and Melania, you both stole them from Tubularsock’s father back before either of you were born!


“We want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them.” 

Sorry, but Tubularsock’s father was all over this one too.

So Tubularsock has to say that this plagiarism accusation is really misdirected.

The difference is when Tubularsock’s father stated these bullshit platitudes, he really did believe them in his heart. Much of his generation did as well.
Not so much with shallow Michelle and Melania. Just think the difference in our political environment if ANY OF THEM just followed, “ . . . that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise . . .”

Can you even imagine the profound changes that would take place?

Well, dream on ……. it ain’t going to happen is this life cycle.

    I thought it could be stuff Ted Sorensen might have written; thanks for revealing it was Papasock who wrote what is essentially a moral compass that p0l!tikkk@n$ fail to grasp. Greetings!

      Welcome onnovocks. You are correct that Ted could have been involved at least in spirit. This kind of stuff does fall into the same category with, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.”

      Yet it appears that one of Donnie’s ghost writers was involved.

      It is not amazing to Tubularsock that with all the crap coming out of politician’s mouths THIS inane crap is what is focused upon. No news here!

    Melanie’s “speech” was as empty, superficial, and artificial as the layets of makeup on her face.

    What’s there to plagiarize? Meaningless standard sentences for such occasions.

    Too bad the USA has only two parties. Seems like many Americans will have to vote for the lesser evil or not vote at all.

      Got you so far, heila. Tubularsock had you already approved but maybe because of your new layout on your blog or maybe the number of comments in a row triggered the system. Tubularsock hopes he has gotten it corrected. So please continue.

      So far, Tubularsock agrees ……..
