Are you there, America? It’s me: Kellyanne. You know, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about words and how much they matter, that is to say, almost not at all. It’s all about context when you’re talking about things like massacres or voter fraud or clumsily spelled allegations of Nixonesque White House misconduct. And let me be clear, that when I refer to “context”, I refer to something I’m not particularly familiar with and don’t pay much attention to. I will say, however, that I have had many a drunken conversation with men who claim to be lawyers and I’m pretty sure that if you insert an unnecessary space into a word to make it look kinda like a phrase and then wrap quotation marks around it, you can say pretty much anything you want (e.g. I think “Hit ler” had some “go od id eas” that went too far).
My favorite part is that all of this is being characterized as some sort of Machiavellian conspiracy, when really…it just boils down to plain ole’ red, white and blue incompetence and ignorance. What a glorious time to be alive. All hail Red!
Hugs and Kisses!
