Campy!Dave Weigel has a report from the Mount Vernon Establishment Parade, located a few miles from Mount Vernon, because George Washington didn’t allow obnoxious politicking at his house (HINT HINT): “Heritage Foundation president Ed Fuelner was given the task of reading out the statement, word for word. As he did so, Manship — the George Washington impersonator — nodded at key phrases like ‘tyrants and despots everywhere.'” [Washington Independent/Photo by Dave Weigel]

    I’m surprised tha angry incompetent fat old white guys would write angry ranting screed about the gubbiment, black folks, being more Christish, womens barefoot and pregnant, conspiracies and taking back the country like the good old days.

    I went to Mt. Vernon last summer and I didn’t see a George Washington impersonator. I *did* see a couple of black people who were impersonating slaves, at least I guess that’s what they were doing. Why weren’t they there today? Maybe they were sold off. But anyway, let’s hear it for liberty!

    So the Mount Vernon Statement is being unveiled by a poignantly aging suited demon with black eyes and a four foot tall fright wig massaged into a ponytail that purports to be the first president of the United States? For a bunch of sanctimonious straight-edgers, conservatives seem to be stuck in one giant acid trip.

    That is the worst George Washington I have ever seen.

    Before you think “Who is this guy, anyway, some kind of George Washington expert?” — Yes, I am! I have seen, in my life, dozens of George Washingtons.

    Why, this very Christmas Day, I saw a George Washington in person, on the Beltway. He was driving a yellow-and-black pickup truck festooned with tea-party and anti-abortion slogans. The license plate was “LIFE 2 BEE”, so I think he also loved puns. Man, what a terrible concept for a George Washington. But at least that pun-loving bee-fancying tea-partier looked the part, goddammit.

    [re=514695]grevillea[/re]: Strictly speaking, no, they didn’t so much. For dressy occasions men would sometimes follow the feminine fashion of powdering the hair, so it looked sort of chalky and whitish. Some of the more vain balding fellows might invest in a toupee or a full wig, which they would then powder. Because the “powdery” look was such a fashion “do” in those days, portrait painters tended to give everyone the whitehead look whether they generally powdered or not.

    The lookalike in the photo is following the less mainstream fashion of making a hat out of a dead albino ferret.

  • Zadig

    [re=514695]grevillea[/re]: You learn new things about these crazy old white guys every day (the founders, I mean. The ‘baggers are a pretty easy read). And I don’t just mean the “zomg he had wooden teef” thing that everyone has heard ten billion times.

    Just this week I’ve been reading about the intelligence side of the Revolution, and damn, Washington was a crafty bastard. He wasn’t just unafraid to play dirty, he invented new goddamn ways of playing dirty. The Brits weren’t that familiar with the concept of “double agents” before he came along. The holy catechism of Revolution-themed paintings, glory-besotted “Washington Crosses the Delaware” is a depiction of one of the meanest, dirtiest, most dishonorable (and therefore effective!) offensives in American history. He didn’t just attack when the Hessians were drunk, on Christmas, his agents tricked them into thinking it was safe to get shitty AND spiked the punch.

    If I were Washington, and this cynical political posturing wasn’t enough to make me whirl in my tomb, the thought of that weaselly little shit in the picture cosplaying my badass self would be.

    Alex on the Beltway,

    I happen to know that the guy at Christmas you saw on the beltway and the one today are the same George Washington!

    Hey, so I had a “bad hair day”, cut some slack, look at slackers Nancy No Nanny State Pelosi and Hillary Billary Clinton and there bad hair and bad other aspects day after day after day.

    And for whatever it is worth to those quick to criticize critics out there, in that bastion of feminist liberalism, where the wife of Obama’s Press Secretary Gibbs has a leadership post in the City of Alexandria (NOT the same as Mount Vernon down the GW Parkway), this GW won the first place prize in a George Washington look alike contest a few years ago when they had one one year.

    Susan said…

    Actually, you are a pretty sad looking George Washington. You’re too short, your teeth are made of wood, and slaves? Where are your slaves? Sorry man, bogus impersonation. C- at best.

    Oh, and you got the politics completely wrong.

    Susan, far more folks than you say I look very much like the real George Washington. Try the side by side photo in the Truman Library…

    http://statesmanshiprevolutionary.blogspot.com/

    Most historians are WRONG as to Washington’s height, including David McCullough. Most say 6 feet 2 inches or 6 feet 4 inches. First, if either, which is correct?

    Neither. First GW’s doctor measured him to be 6 feet. Martha’s grandson, George Washington Parke Custis wrote in his biography of Washington that the great man was “a shade over six feet”. Yet most important is a letter from George Washington himself to his tailor in 1763 when he was 31 (before men begin to shrink in height), GW asking for a suit of clothes for a man of my height, to wit, six feet.

    And slaves? On pages 53 to 61 of my book Second to None, some of Washington’s quotes, and actions, against slavery are shared. You should read it, you could learn a lot. Go to SecondToNoneWashington.blogspot.com.

    On the teeth issue, Google Wooden Teeth Washington and Washington Times, to see where Inside the Beltway printed my explanation that children just love to learn.

    I know C+ is a programming language, is C- a liberal language for government programs?

    Liberals, both Demoncrats and RINO Republicans are all about “Politics”. Washington and Americans who work to Conserve this Constitution are all about Statesmanship.

  • GW

    From a reply to a question: Does the Constitution provide this country with its basic foundation for rule of law?

    “Rule of Law” derives in the minds of the Founding Fathers from the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.

    Rule of Law is the “Res” in Res Publica, the Latin words that compose Republic.

    Res is the “object” of the king, or Rex. Res is the authority of the king, or the Rule of Law.

    The soldiers in the War for Independence had a rallying cry, “No king but King Jesus.”

    God’s Law are the foundation of this nation, God’s Law is the Rule of Law, in simplest terms.

    Democracy breaks down into Demos and Cracy, or the Mass of People and Rule, or “Rabble Rule”.

    Think “Democracy” and think “Rabble Rule”, NOT “Rule of Law”.

    Not just Citizens with Rights in an Organized Social Structure, or Publica, Public, but anyone and everyone – the Rabble.

    The above is why I so strongly feel that Republicans especially, but all Americans should remove “Democracy” from the words used to describe our American Constitutional Republic.

  • GW

    If so, how is it that a member of “We the People” does not have “standing” to bring, what appears to the general public to be a clear violation of the law, before the court?

    Originally, ANY citizen could bring a “Presentment” to a Grand Jury of “one’s peers”, fellow citizens, to seek an indictment, from which flows a warrant for arrest, or other appropriate court order.

    Since the 1930s, under FDR, voluntary BAR associations became an arm or agency of the state supreme court, and “Rules of Law” began to supplant the Rule of Law. Simple access to the court began to be tied up in a labyrinth of Bar created Rules that benefit its members rather than the Public.

    “Rules of Law” are much like Gulliver while sleeping being tied down by thousands of tiny strands by the Lilliputians.

    Public Prosecutors began to BAR access to the Grand Jury to the average citizen.

    Once that obstruction was in place, there was created a dangerous to Liberty firewall from accountability to the Citizens by powerful Public Servants, who would NOT be charged by other Public Servants, and now could NOT be charged by Citizens.

    Thus providing the court with the opportunity to determine if the Constitution is being shredded, stepped on, broken…..

    The Court does not act on its own. It must be “moved” to act by a Motion filed with its Clerk, and then scheduled for a hearing. Short of both, the Court will ignore problems created by elements associated with its normal daily work.

    A Judge can not be expected to rule objectively concerning people he or she works with on a near daily basis, so to achieve any hope of Justice, a JURY is essential.

  • GW

    [T]he trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

  • GW

    Status quo, you know, is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in’.

    -President Ronald Reagan

    Res is Latin for authority of the King (Rex), or the Rule of Law.
    Publica is Latin for the organized People.

    Demos is Greek for the vast expanse of people, more than just by Rights, Citizens, more the “Rabble”.
    Cracy is Greek for Rule, so Democracy breaks down to “Rabble Rule” not the Rule of Law for the good of the Public, as is in a Republic.
