Can't we all just get along (with the Great Satan)? - This is rich. Mahhhhhhhhhkmoud Ahhhhhhhhhhhkmidinejad wants to "engage President Obama in 'negotiations'" for some reason. My advice to our President: Make the perpetual asshat beg first. Wasn't he comparing the imperialist Obama to the imperialist Bush just last week?
Robo-POTUS - Walt Disney World, in updating their Hall of Presidents, has added an animatronic version of President Obama. Some rumors do indicate that the robo-Obama is the most lifelike of the lot (as the living president is the least lifelike of the lot), as well as installing the TOTUS as an optical implant rather than relying on the standup model.
Equal time for Bush - Former President Bush marked our independence by showing up in Oklahoma. It's of course a standard fare thing, in a nice safe county. But i was annoyed, of course, by someone with an intelligent statement that is wholly misplaced around the former POTUS, who started the bailout mess in the first place: "We're conservative," she said. "We don't spend money we don't have."
On a related note, I have little tolerance for these events since 1992, when then-VP Dan Quayle rolled through St Marys, Ohio. The event was marred by the high school band playing the already-nauseating song "Achy Break Heart" by Billy Ray Cyrus over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over.
And over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, again (in telling the tale, I go on longer). Which reminds me of the dreaded Sean Hannity freedom concert where you get musical shit like that and Lee fucking Greenwood, who sucks more ass than all of DC combined.
And related to that, Lee Greenwood was in the nearby town of Celina on Sunday. Needless to say, I got the fuck out of Dodge before I was subjected to that swill and compelled to projectile vomit. And my sister failed to capture the moment for me when she tried just to taunt me. Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WTF, DC?!?!?! - The joke is not Marion Berry, who is now a stalker in addition to being a former mayor and cokehead. It's that after doing lines and not getting booted immediately for it, he then comes back and gets elected again and again. Come on! You guys make California and Cleveland look like bastions of common damned sense. And that's hard to do.
Get along home, Cindy Cindy (obscure folk song) - You'd think Cynthia McKinney would figure out that there's a right way and a wrong way to deliver humanitarian aid. But no, the 2008 Green Party joke candidate fells the overwhelming need to keep making statements that change no one's mind. To her credit, she is less useless than Marion Berry, though.
Now I'd include Mark Sanford in here, but I'll save mocking that moron until he is rightfully hounded out of office.
Which brings me to the moment (and Photoshopped boob pic) you've all been waiting for:
Now I'm going to start by saying that the media has been particularly virulent when covering the Wonder of Wasilla. But I'm going to bring up a couple of points why she shouldn't have bailed on her office.
First, in the dirty tricks department, almost anything that shouldn't be fair game usually is. And if you're going to be contemplating a run for the presidency and you're not Obama, you have to expect everything to be thrown at you. Buck up already!
Second, after a lackluster showing in the 2008 election (not all of which can be attributed to Assface McCain), you really needed to rack up some good public record as governor of Alaska. claiming lame duck status over a year and a half out is weak. After all, we like our presidents to have significant private and public service experience if they're not Obama.
Now this isn't the end of Sarah Palin the politician. But now you have to start speaking a lot more, and start appealing to groups that are going to expect you to know your shit (me included). After all, if the 2008 election proved anything, you have to sound smart, not be smart.
So Sarah, before you risk obscurity by becoming Citizen Palin, and so I can add said photo, this Asshat award's for you. Shwinnng!!!
