Adrienne Ross takes liberal comedian Chris Rock to task for saying that we should listen to "dad" Obama on gun control. The conservative Republican blogger in New York writes: "I guess Chris Rock was supposed to be using his celebrity to seriously promote and advance President Obama's gun controlling proclivities, but surely he must have been trying out a new comedy act. Like many liberals, Rock simply doesn't get it. The President of the United States is not our daddy, as he asserted [yesterday]. Nor is the First Lady our mama. The President is also not our boss. The reverse is actually true; presidents are elected to represent — to serve — the people. As American patriots well know, we the people are not going to blindly follow a politician, for that's the stuff cults are made of."
She adds: "In all fairness to the comedian, he didn't have a clear mind while making those comments; he was under the influence — of Kool Aid. It's interesting that he wasn't so committed to 'honour[ing] thy father and thy mother' when President Bush occupied Pennsylvania Avenue. But I digress."
