State of the Union guests don’t receive any guidelines, according to
Deputy House Sergeant at Arms Kerri Hanley. “You would assume that if
you were coming to an event like the State of the Union address you
would be dressed in appropriate attire,” she said.
At Gilley's here in Dallas, they call their bouncers, "Courtesy Staff." At the State of the Union, I guess they got a little too courteous with a the wrong people, bouncing a good Republican Representatives wife. But, you know, stuff happens when you introduce bullies into any process. When The Courtesy Staff are unaccountable, who knows what will happen? They could have bounced Alito by mistake for wearing a sinister looking black gown. I guess next time, they will have a list of all the Republicans, and be made to memorize their names and faces.
They should have beat her senseless. Committing Treason in the Halls of Congress! She's complaning? She should drop to her knees and thank her President for sparing her life. He could have her disappeared in a thousand ways, here or abroad. No trial necessary, no trace left behind. There's a war on, you know. During a war the President as Commander in Chief can do pretty much whatever he wants. If Cindy lives it is because he is a big enough man to rise above the insults. If it was me, she would be boiled alive by now somewhere in Pakistan. I could make it look like a suicide, like with the Author Function, found hacked to death in his cell in 2002. There are times when you had best just keep your mouth shut, Cindy.
Whose irony? From Wealth Bondage to the Dumpster and partly back: images, voices, gestures, costumes, errant selves, who can master the flow? Can Candidia own my perception of her fictions? Her brand? Does copyright and authorial intention extend into the other's skull? Yes, message discipline and ordered liberty extend, when the fictions are successful and backed by repitition, mass acceptance and consequences, to the very synapses of the brain and the very cells of the body politic. Art is an interruption at best. We hold the mirror up to nature as did Perseus to Medusa. One will turn the other to stone. In his hand the artist holds the severed head, the snakes still writhing.
