Some Unbelievable Comments

In the last week, we had Kathy Griffin and her disgusting photos that, hopefully, destroyed her career.  Then we had Bill Maher and his use of the N word that took over the headlines.  Now, after the London terror attack, we have three more statements that put the Griffin/Maher stuff to shame for pure idiocy.

Third prize in the idiotic comment contest goes to Al Gore.  He was on Fox News Sunday to discuss climate change and was asked about the terror attacks.  This man, who was almost president of the United States, said this: 

We have to defeat terrorism with the force of our values.

We utter blather.  It means nothing.  It offers no plan.  It's just words.  It's the typical sort of response we get from most leaders on the left.  They are so concerned not to offend anyone that they talk without saying anything.

Second prize goes to the moronic senator from my own state of Connecticut, Chris Murphy, who actually said this:

Terrorism is a real threat, but remember that since 9/11 you have a greater chance of being killed by a falling object than by terrorists.

Unbelievable!  For Murphy, all these dead and wounded in the heart of London are just no big deal.  Don't worry, be happy.  He has nothing to offer with regard to defeating terrorism, so he just pretends it's not really important.

First prize, however, has to go to the mayor of London who has been quoted as saying:

Terror attacks are part and parcel of living in a big city.

It reminds me of what Winston Churchill said after Dunkirk:  "Another day, another defeat."  Wait, that's not what he said.  Churchill said that the British would fight the Nazis on the beaches and in the hills, in towns and villages and cities, in the skies and on the oceans.  Churchill said that the Brits would "never surrender."  Churchill was a leader.  The mayor of London is a joke.
