Send in the Clowns

I’ve never been a fan of clowns. Blame it on the circus my parents took me to when I was six. Blame it on those icky horror movies with doll faces painted in clownlike fashion. Clowns creep me out and I don’t find them funny. 

Maybe that’s why I’m so put off by D.C. clowns. I see their “antics” (how they try so hard to get attention and to draw in the crowd to their shenanigans) and I just roll my eyes. 

These days, there are clowns everywhere. I can’t seem to avoid them. I find them in the new administration, yes, but I also see them in the Republican party. They stick out like sore thumbs, as if to prove some sort of a point. 

But, why? 

Why don’t they just make the switch to the Democrat party? If they’re going to continue to draw attention to themselves by voting opposite all of their Republican colleagues, why are they even Republicans. . .at all? Wouldn’t it just put all of us out of our misery if they donned blue vests instead of red ones? (Honestly, I can’t root for the whole team if some of them are compromised.) 

As I said before, I’m not a fan. So, I thought it might be fun to list some of the clown-like characteristics I’m seeing from some of our representative that are driving me particularly crazy. 

  • They exaggerate. Have you see seen more exaggerators in D.C. than right now? They puff things up and make them bigger than life. Where I come from they call that “lying.” These days lies are seen as truth, thanks in part to exaggeration from Democrats and RINOs. 
  • They color their faces and pretend to be something/someone they’re not. This is one of the reasons RINOs bother me so much. They’re pretending to represent those of us who are conservative, but when it comes right down to it, that face paint was just an illusion. They’re not with us. They are against us. 
  • Clowns LOVE attention. They thrive on it. Maybe this is why the RINOs and folks in “the squad” are SO over-the-top. Anything they can do to make a headline. Any flame-laced hoop they can jump through to make the papers or to trend on Twitter, they will do. These folks remind me of kids I grew up with. You know the ones. They would do anything to get the attention of the teacher in class—good, bad, or otherwise. Ever the class clown, and always for the spotlight. 
  • Clowns are different when they’re out of the spotlight than when they’re in it. This is why we can’t be too surprised to see that some of the people we think are conservative really aren’t. They espouse to one doctrine when in the shadows and another in the light. (We call that “two-faced.”)
  • Clowns are a distraction. They’re just there to stir things up and to distract you from the rest of the circus. (Enough said?) 

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think that clowns are critical to the plot of our story as conservatives. They are (as I stated above) a huge distraction to the team. 

It’s time to vote the clowns out of D.C., friends. 

2022 is our year. 

Send ‘em back to the circus where they belong.
