‘Last week, Little Petey (who always reminds me of a cross between Alfred “What, Me Worry?” Newman and Beaver Cleaver) let Americans know that being transportation secretary is more than focusing on roads and cars.
Therefore, he tweeted out, “You should not have to own a car to prosper in this country, no matter what kind of community you’re living in.”On Thursday, he decided to use his first White House Cabinet meeting to make that point. He wasn’t going to drive to the White House. He was going to bike there.
Except that was ridiculous because D.C. is a big, busy city, and biking is a slow and vulnerable process.
What Little Petey actually did was to take a large SUV to some point near the White House. He then strapped on his cute helmet, had his three burly companions get his bike out of the car and engaged in the theater of riding a bike to the White House, with a security guard biking at his side and the same SUV traveling behind him to keep him safe from errant vehicles.
Pete Buttigieg’s dog and pony show. Use an armored Suburban to bring a bike within a short distance of the destination. Unload it and ride in with a security detail in tow, pretending to save energy.’ 🙄
It occurred to me watching the video that Democrats are always given to theater. Part of it is because they understand well the power of visual images. Humans are programmed to pick up on, respond to, and try to interpret images.
Truly, for most people, a picture really is worth a thousand words. Lefties are good at that, which helps explain their dominance in the world of movies, television, and videos.
That same reliance on visuals, however, also speaks to the fact that leftists often cannot distinguish fantasy from reality. I’m willing to bet that Little Petey really is proud of himself for having biked to work on Thursday.’
