Playing next at the Capital Theater: unravelingJapanese motives at Pearl Harbor

Now that political realities are signaling doom for President Barack Obama's fascist transformation of America, political theater is resuming its proper place in national affairs.

One year of White House missteps and failures is almost over. The administration is trying to prove to the nation that it isn't quite dead yet.

That's why the House narrowly passed ObamaCare.

Now Obamacare must navigate  a Senate populated by Republicans desperate to prove they're conservative enough and Blue Dog Democrats desperate to prove they dislike Obama's fascist agenda as much as normal people do.

For many of the Blue Dogs, this is important because their jobs are at stake.

The question is, what to stage at the Capital Theater?

Last week we had a Senate committee passing a presumably earth-saving bill to reduce carbon emissions. For Europeans, who are accustomed to lives of high drama featuring the likes of Hitler and Mussolini, this was a pathetic bid to get in on the save-the-earth action.

Nevertheless, the senators had to do it or say goodby to free skiing vacations in the Alps.

The question now is, what should the senators and representatives put on next at the Capital Theater?

My answer:

Show film clips of Obama, responding to the murderous rampage of Malik Nadal Hasan with these words: "I would caution against jumping to conclusions until  we get all the facts."

Play with these words by revealing all of the facts that are known.

Then, show film cllips of the World Trade Center on 9/11, followed by the Obama clip: "I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we get all the facts."

Then, show clips of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, followed by the Obama clilp on Hasan: "I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we get all the facts."

Add as many other disasters as drama permits.
