As we don’t usually associate Bernie Sanders or Liz Warren with suggestively gyrating on camera while festooned in a Catholic schoolgirl uniform, we’ll reserve judgment on Mayor Pete, we also don’t typically expect socialist blatherings from 90s-era video starlets.
But then far be it from us to expect anything approaching sensible expectation from that fountain of logic, that purveyor of mass coherence, that poster girl for mental balance: Britney Spears.
Not satisfied with conning Las Vegas show-goers with a bait and switch act that subs her present dance form for her 90s terpsichorean pulchritude, she now has decided to allow the general public to ken the revealed wisdom imparted to her in regards to the coronavirus.
Britney shared a quote from someone called Mimi Zhu: “During this time of isolation, we need connection now more than ever. Call your loved ones, write virtual love letters. Technologies like virtual communication, streaming and broadcasting are part of our community collaboration.” Ummmm, okay…not totally loony.
“We will learn to kiss and hold each other through the waves of the web.” Welllll, kinda…maybe…sort of. The tweet went on, “We will feed each other, re-distribute wealth, strike…” Annnnd, there it is.
“Feed”? Sure, I guess. “Re-distribute wealth”? Ohhh, Britney. First of all, the only way we have the cash for the economic rescue package is that we don’t redistribute wealth in America as a matter of course.
Secondly, don’t remember that University of Chicago economics degree on your curriculum vitae. Must have missed it. Supply side or Keynesian, Brit? Just wondering.
“Strike”? Are you daft? Now, when the supply chain is vulnerable and people are worrying about keeping their jobs, you want workers to strike? Which ones? Medical personnel? First responders? Maybe nurses? Dear gawd airhead, get a grip.
In related news, President Trump will be taking his stand-up act to the lounge of The Sands, twice nightly, three on the weekend. He’ll be there all week. Try the veal.
