It really is a shame that the U.S. economy isn’t growing at the same rate as insanity. Instead, we have Barack Obama threatening to shut down tours of the White House to school kids, blaming that old devil, Sequester.

At the same time, as the Wall Street Journal points out, he green lights a junket for Department of Agriculture employees to attend the 26th California Small Farm Conference, in Fresno, where they’ll have the opportunity to sip “exceptional wines” and sample “tasty dishes” whipped up by “special guest chefs.”

At the same time that Obama gave the finger to school kids and other Americans who planned to visit the place that used to be called “The People’s House” before the Obamas moved in, he sent $300 million to Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi, shortly after the creep referred to Christians and Jews as pigs and monkeys.

Those are your tax dollars at work, or not, as the case may be.

But far be it from me to suggest that lunacy is limited to those within spitting distance of Pennsylvania Avenue. For instance, Sean Penn and Oliver Stone are both sitting shiva or however it is that Hollywood cretins pay their respects when their favorite despots die. Catholics don’t mourn the death of Christ the way celebrities mourn the passing of every anti-American jackal in the world.

In related news, Dennis Rodman, a former basketball player who was nicknamed “Worm” for perfectly obvious reasons, recently announced that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is an “awesome guy.”

I have no doubt that a big part of the reason that so many notables salivate at the mere mention of Obama’s name is because they see in him a despot wannabe.

It’s probably just as well that it’s so difficult to get inside the heads of liberals because, judging by the stuff that comes out of their mouths, their skulls must be very dark and spooky places, filled with echoes of Biden’s gaffes and Obama’s talking points. Remember when Obama said his would be the most transparent administration in history or when he said that Bush’s request for an increase in the national debt was proof of failed leadership or, more recently, when he said America doesn’t have a spending problem? Apparently, liberals missed all that while they were busy swooning.

Obama’s war on the Second Amendment continues, reinforced by ex-congresswoman Gaby Giffords. If anyone should be leading the fight to make it easier to institutionalize loons, not make it more difficult for law-abiding Americans to buy guns, it’s the woman who was shot by a psychopath, who didn’t know and didn’t care if she was a Republican or a Democrat.

Speaking of guns, someone recently sent me a pithy line on the subject: Participating in a gun buyback program because you believe that criminals have too many weapons is like having yourself castrated because you think the neighbors have too many kids.

Finally, if you recall, when John Hinckley shot President Reagan back in 1981, he said he was doing it in order to impress actress Jodie Foster, who, at the time was an 18-year-old coed at Yale. Well, as if spending several decades in prison isn’t bad enough, can you imagine the razzing he got from the other prisoners when, in 2007, Ms. Foster got around to announcing she was a lesbian?
