Somebody buy Gretchen Whitmer a clue

Somebody buy Gretchen Whitmer a clue

If the Wuhan Panic has taught me anything, it’s that people don’t understand how analogies work.  And this was made painfully clear when Michigan’s Chief Karen, Gretchen Whitmer, pulled this inane analogy out of her ass.

Oh, for crying out loud. Somebody really needs to buy Gretchen Whitmer a clue. That is assuming, of course, she hasn’t banned the purchase of clues as part of her “Stay at Home” dictates.

This is the worst analogy EVER.

Anybody else thinking Gretchen Whitmer must have had a painfully difficult time with the Analogies section of the SATs?

Really, Gretchen?

You actually think this is a good argument to make?

Most of the people who went to work in the factories during World War Two were thrilled to have the work.  There was a Depression, after all.

“They had to drop everything.”  Really?  What were they dropping?  Not having a job to put food on the table?

Now, I never heard of Gretchen Whitmer until the Wuhan Panic.

And the more I hear of and from her, the more I think Michiganders must have been high when they put this dummy into the Governor’s mansion.

Gretchen, honey.  You aren’t asking people to roll up their sleeves and get to work for crap’s sake.

You’re doing the exact opposite.

Oy, the work.

The people protesting your moronic, capricious “Stay at Home” orders would love nothing more than to roll up their sleeves and get to work.  And something tells me if you ordered them to drop everything, roll up their sleeves and get back to work, they’d say, “About damn time!” Then they’d happily, willingly comply.

During World War Two, they were going out in the fresh air, collecting tin and rubber for the war effort.

Gretchen Whitmer won’t even let these people buy paint or garden seeds.

As one astute tweeter put it:

Now, if during World War Two, Americans were forced inside those factories and not permitted to leave for weeks on end, maybe this analogy would rise to the level of half-assed.

But they weren’t.

They also weren’t forced to work in factories against their will.

Honestly, I don’t know how someone so stupid ever managed to become the Governor of a state.

What am I saying? Stupid people get elected to Congress all the time.

Maybe because she’s not especially bright, Gretchen has convinced herself that she can get Michiganders to obey her nonsensical orders by guilting them into it.

In short, she’s playing the Mom Card.

Like I said yesterday, Gretchen Whitmer is turning into Michigan’s nagging mother.  And, boy, howdy is this a prime example of that.  It’s typical Mom to try and guilt her children into doing something she wants, isn’t it?

Tell me, what’s the difference between this “during World War Two Americans didn’t act like this” lecture and a Mom saying, “You know, some children in India are going to bed starving.  So I don’t want to hear about how much you hate Brussel sprouts!  Now clear your plate!”

Seriously, Michiganders.  What on earth were you thinking?

    “Michiganders must have been high when they put this dummy into the governor’s mansion”

    You aren’t too far off. The Ds (including the hysterical Haley Stevens and CIA spook Slotkin) cleaned up in 2018 due to the legal weed bill that was put on the MI ballot. It brought out the lazy vote, giving the Ds the luxury of not having to the harvest the graveyard vote like in past elections

    I think we have a new contender for most tiresome person of 2020? Seems that a lot of people are growing to hate this lady in Michigan which means that she will be re-elected in a landslide

    I could almost abide it as an odd mutation if she were the only power-hungry control-freak politician out there, but she’s not. They’re in all 50 states. I just pray voters remember these people in November.

    Bloomberg would buy her a clue, but he’s a little short this month.

    Dumb people like Whitmer get elected because dumb people vote for them.

    Well here in Florida we have the Stasi in Broward County and it’s getting worse.
    The Gestapo in Hillsborough Co is almost as bad.

    As always a great and funny article Dianny!

    Governor Twitmer validates her nicknames every single time she speaks. Her speech writers must REALLY dislike her and do a lot of laughing in private. Either that, or the Botox treatments have an unknown effect on thought processes.

    Her supposition that she can set aside constitutional limitations on government overreach at will demonstrates her lunacy. I don’t think she’s gonna get a 2nd term….

    Today in Michigan, State Workers are now getting laid off. Yep, they have been sitting at home collecting a paycheck up till today. No worries, lemmings, Gretchen half-Whitmer says this will be only for 2 weeks…….
