Robert Gibbs, 'Big Government' Have Different Explanations For Robert Gibbs' Bracelet
Robert Gibbs was wearing a purple bracelet during his appearance on Fox News Sunday yesterday. Today he explained why, on Twitter. The ol' "kid has cancer" bait-and-switch, he goes with. The "Chicago-Style Politics Excuse." Well, horseshit. Since when dochildrenget cancer? Fortunately there's another, more conservative explanation of this bracelet's meaning from Big Government's Kyle Olsen, whose article provoked Gibbs' frenzied Twitter Cover-up.
I thought it was odd that Robert Gibbs was wearing a purple bracelet (and a purple tie) during his appearance on “Fox News Sunday” and CBS’ “Face The Nation.” SEIU president Andy Stern, the top visitor to the White House, wore a similar, if not the same, purple bracelet at one point, too. And in virtually every photo of Stern, he’s wearing SEIU’s purple color.
The bracelet is kind of a signal to tell Stern that the administration has it under control and ObamaCare will be delivered. Just a few more Democrats need to be shown the Chicago way.
Am I making too much out of nothing? Maybe. Who knows.
Don't doubt yourself, Journalist. You're spot-on: "The bracelet is kind of a signal."
This Olsen, who titled his article "Robert Gibbs’ and Andy Stern’s Purple Bracelets a Mark of Clintonesque Solidarity?", backs up his argument by shitting out some old text about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, and concluding,
Was Gibbs sending a signal to Stern, ala Clinton and Lewinsky? Doubtful. But anything is possible in the lead-up to the intra-Democratic Party showdown to deliver health care reform for Andy Stern and SEIU.
Skeptics of Olsen's theory could argue that if Robert Gibbs wanted to communicate with Andy Stern, he could talk to him on the telephone or e-mail or in-person, all of which he probably does every day. But that wouldn't be Chicago Politicky enough for these thugs. When they have cartoonishly evil messages to deliver to leaders of their party's coalition, they prefer to wear color-coded costumes on the teevee. If Gibbs had shown up with a green dildo jammed in his right ear, for example, that would've meant, "PRESIDENT GORE: THE DOOMSDAY DEVICE IS OPERATIONAL!" And if it was left ear, "GEORGE SOROS... PLEASE FETCH ME A DOCTOR, FOR I HAVE A GREEN DILDO IN MY EAR."
Or a nine-year-old has cancer, ha ha ha.Or that.Well, see you all in Gitmo.
