I’ll explain my theory here to you. Admittedly it’s gonna sound simplistic to many of you who think there has to be something deep and dark to explain this. And I think we can explain all of this in three words: race, media, history. Race, media, and history explain this. And what I mean by that is this. There isn’t anyone, there isn’t anyone in government, there isn’t anyone on Capitol Hill, there isn’t anybody in the Drive-By Media who wants to be the person who will be recorded in history and thus always known in history and forever attacked in the media. No one wants to be the one who denied the first African-American president his agenda or his choices.
And then, elaboration, and then expanding this concept to the idea that nobody wants to seem like they’re hitting the girl.
Occam’s Razor is that when considering competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected. Blogmeister’s Razor is that when considering competing hypotheses, the one with the most cynicism should be selected. And this three word theory fits both razors. Oddly, I don’t think that this doesn’t mean that people know about people’s closeted skeletons; it’s just that in this case, it’s not necessary when the explanation that is both simpler and more cynical is the paralyzing effects of political correctness.
