I hope Buttigieg kills paternity leave

Vacationing Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's paternity-leave-with-no-end-in-sight makes the case against paternity leave. On Monday, he begins the third month of his absence with pay because he and his mate adopted twins.

The adoption was a photo op. They posed on a hospital bed. And instead of looking at their new children, they gazed into one another's eyes. The babies seem like props.

Ordinarily, no one would care if a transportation secretary shows up for work or not. He is the figurehead for a conglomeration of agencies who need someone's picture to sit below the president's in its chain of command.

But for the first time since LBJ and a Democrat Congress created the post 54 years ago, we actually need a transportation secretary. The ports are clogged and cargo ships are backed up because for some reason or reasons, we cannot unload them quick enough. This leads to empty shelves because America foolishly outsourced manufacturing to slaves in Red China and sweatshops elsewhere.

What do you know? The job you could give to the gay guy so you could claim (falsely) he is the first Cabinet-level gay guy turns out to be important. A token won't do. Maybe we should bring in the first actual Cabinet-level gay guy -- Ric Grenell -- because he actually got his work done.

Now there is a school of thought that we are better off without Buttigieg. Just let him stay home and play house because he would do more damage than good. After all, he failed as mayor of South Bend and all he knows about roads is that we drive on the right side of the road.

But we are paying him. We actually need him. And he is on an endless paternity leave.

Tucker Carlson goofed on Buttigieg's paternity leave, daring to say, "Paternity leave, they call it, trying to figure out how to breastfeed. No word on how that went."

For the first time since August, Buttigieg sprung into action to tweet that said Carlson doesn't understand bottle-feeding. A father of four kids does not need instruction from a rookie so overwhelmed by his new responsibilities that he cannot show up for work.

Paternity leave makes little sense. Maternity leave allows a woman to heal after delivering a small watermelon. Men do not have that need. Our innards are not re-arranged by childbirth. Male bonding with a new child can take place after work and on weekends. Besides, there is not much to bond early on. Babies sleep a lot.

And this guy is milking it. Two months? Really? We are paying him $221,400 a year to babysit his kids?

The time has come to pull the plug on Buttigieg. Biden should tell him to show up or be fired. Every other parent in America arranges for child care. Being gay does not excuse him from this duty.

Democrats think this endless vacation makes their case for paternity leave. I trust it does the opposite because America sees this man is loafing. For the first time in history, we have a crisis that a good (or even a mediocre) transportation secretary could ease.

And there he is at home goofing off.

But Buttigieg may accomplish one thing. His loafing around the house may have killed paternity leave.

  1. Paternity leave? Isn't Butthead supposed to be the wife? I'm so confused.As those twins will be.

    1. Parenting is tough. When Pothole Pete read that he had to boil the nipples before feeding his kids, he thought they meant his own!

  2. The French demonstrated against gay marriage because they are against the trafficking of children. Where did those twins come from? More importantly, where are they going?

  3. We have maternity/paternity leave in Canada for up to one year and it can be evenly split between moms and dates, gay or not gay. We have had it for about a generation. Again, we pay for it through premiums that all workers must contribute to regardless of whether they have children or not. It is not cheap. But it is now an entitlement program that no one here will ever give up. Has it increased the birth rate? I really don't think so or just marginally. Revising and fixing the taxation code in both countries would do more for families and encourage the birth of more children. (Even though my parents were working class entrepreneurs I was raised on socialism and by hippies in the school system in the 70s. It continued with some of my university profs. It took years to get it out of my system. That's what the education system now does. It started a long, long time ago -- the long Gramscian march through institutions.

    1. Speaking of Gramsci ...

      Q: How does the mayor of South Bend, Indiana go directly to the presidential debate stage along side Senators Biden, Sanders, Warren etc??
      A: His father is a translator and editor of the three-volume English edition of Marxist philosopher Antonio Gramsci's Prison Notebooks.
      Butt reliably embraces all the policies of the Democratic party establishment.

    Yes, Buttigieg never should have been appointed to his post. He is useless. He could take leave without pay, no?

  10. My question is, in a department with 50,000 employees, including numerous undersecretaries and assistant undersecretaries, does no one else have the authority to do what's needed to get things moving again? Didn't he put someone in charge before he left on daddy leave who could try to work out the details to get things moving again? I'm sure there are things they would need his authority for, but they could work that out over the phone, or with an email, couldn't they?

    The point is, he's a political appointee who was probably put there for political reasons, and the real work is done by a subset of the 54,999 remaining employees, many of whom could probably straighten things out given the authority to do so. Are they so busy playing solitaire and downloading porn that they can't? If so, lay off the entire department and put a guy with Six Sigma certification on the job...

  12. Chlamydia wants nothing to do with the border, either. Buck Fiden is perpetually out to lunch.

    The only ones on the job are the AG and SecDef and most people want them gone.

    We need a President because he may actually put people in charge to do something substantial.

  13. Does this mean if I identify as a female cat and then a male cat and then adopt some kittens, I can claim maternity and then paternity leave?

    Too bad I'm retired. I'd like to try that stunt just to see the looks on peoples faces. They'll want to say things but they know they might get in trouble so they pretend what they just heard was normal.

    just like all the other nonsense that's been boiling up since obama got elected.

  14. Pete is not husband in that relationship - so it's not paternity leave

  15. Well someone tried something and forgot to close some tags or copy/pasted something with some weird formatting.

    Don't copy/paste to comment boxes. Some html/formatting stuff can sneak in. First paste it into a text file make sure it's plain text then copy paste that.

    Are you people new at this?

  22. It’s those poor babies that concern me. Twins, no mother, two feckless men using them for publicity. They’ll be farmed out to day care. The early months of life are critical to a sound start in life, but it doesn’t seem like that’s what these twins will be getting.
