Scandal is not an agenda

National Review Online says Scandal is not an agenda. The editors go on to explain why the scandals engulfing the Obama Administration, by themselves, are likely to be insufficient in massively swaying the next two national elections.

Basically, the editors call on conservatives to do something they should be doing all the time: to present compelling and attractive alternatives to failed existent policies and to plans for continued Democrat intrusion in the future. (On the other hand, the President, to his benefit, avoided articulating any sort of agenda in the run-up to the 2012 election.) Implicitly, the NRO call means conservatives must engage the low information/low commitment voter. After all, a powerful agenda goes beyond merely rallying the base.

Naturally, attractive conservative candidates are also useful. Then you’ve got something.

But as the Scandal is not an agenda headline was read, the first thought was about the Obama Administration itself. That is, the thought the headline inspired was that these scandals were in no way a part of the agenda of the Administration.

Of course not. Everyone knows that. Instead, they are a natural consequence of the Obama agenda.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
