His Majesty is a notable patron of the arts

August 13th, 2014 by Vader

Although his tastes run towards highly abstract art. Symbolic art he tends to dismiss with a snort of disgust, rather as J.R.R. Tolkien was dismissive of literary allegory.

(And I can’t believe I just compared His Majesty to J.R.R. Tolkien. I feel like I need to go scrub my mouth out.)

This morning, over breakfast, he had this to say: “Rather rude of those German artists to preempt the Obama administration.”

It seems His Majesty is as contemptuous of symbolic politics as he is of symbolic art and allegorical literature. Which, come to think of it, sometimes seem like they’re all the same thing.

I don’t recall ever hearing him express an opinion on religious symbolism. He is not a believer, naturally, and I’m not sure I want to broach the topic.

One observer’s take on Obama’s negotiating style

February 20th, 2014 by Vader

I have no idea if this is true or not, but Putin supposedly likened negotiating with Obama to playing chess with a pigeon: first, the pigeon knocks all the pieces over, then it, ahem, “poops” on the board, then it struts around as if it won.

Another slight difficulty with Obamacare

January 04th, 2014 by Vader

Adding a new baby is next to impossible.

I’d be a bit old to be having any more children, even if it was still physically possible for me. (The incident on Mustafa did an awful lot of damage.) But this has got to be yet another real downer for Adam and many others.

President Pinochio

December 05th, 2013 by Vader

It seems like Mr. Obama and the truth have only a passing acquaintance.

Are we to believe that a man who constantly lies about little things is going to be truthful about big things?

Perspective

November 12th, 2013 by Vader

Putting things in perspective: March 21st 2010 to October 1 2013 is 3 years, 6 months, 10 days.  December 7, 1941 to May 8, 1945 is 3 years, 5 months, 1 day.  What this means is that in the time we were attacked at Pearl Harbor to the day Germany surrendered is not enough time for this progressive federal government to build a working webpage.

It gets better.   (more…)
