A snow globe — as we all remember from childhood — is a transparent sphere, typically made of glass, enclosing a miniaturized scene of some sort, often together with a model of a landscape.
Nowadays the local hard-right political blogs such as Rebane’s Ruminations have become like “snow globes.” Just shake for entertainment! The miniaturized scene is one of true characters — George, Russ, Gregory, “fish,” Todd, Bill and Walt — jumping up and down while another character “Jon Dozer” reminds them that the world just isn’t going their way.
It began with the local elections in June, where the local politics shifted decidedly to the left. That sent the “snow globe” characters jumping up and down in protest.
But it continued with this:
•And F.B.I. Director James Comey — a lifelong registered Republican, no less — recommending no charges for Hillary Clinton on email.
It’s been tough for our local hard-right to handle all this.
“The Day Justice Died,” George Rebane wrote in one rant about the Clinton emails that — sadly for listeners — was broadcast on the KVMR news hour. Of course, George.
As Jon Dozer told the group: “The American people won’t put up with another GOP-led witch hunt between now and November, wasting millions more of our taxpayer dollars.
Try as you may, Drumpf has zero chance at the Presidency. 67% disapproval. Ain’t happening boys.
You guys never, ever learn…)”
Right, Jon, this group will never, ever learn. But keep their “snow globe” on your desk and shake it up every now and then while you’re working. It’s hugely entertaining.
