Boneless wonders

By

On January 28, 1931, the inimitable Winston Churchill said this about Ramsay MacDonald, Britain's Prime Minister at the time:

I remember when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Barnum's Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the program which I most desired to see was the one described as "The Boneless Wonder". My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralizing and revolting for my youthful eye and I have waited fifty years, to see The Boneless Wonder sitting on the Treasury Bench.

One is struck just how fittingly this could also be said about today's American liberals. Unable (or unwilling) to say what they stand for, they must hold meetings behind closed doors to figure out what their 'true' convictions are. When asked what they believe, they blink furtively like criminals caught in the act before seeking refuge in a cesspool of lies and specious accusations. Deceitful and mendacious, they have no agenda, no integrity, no principles, and no shame.

Devoid of a moral or intellectual backbone, these people truly are boneless wonders.
