The "Troofers" will have a ball with this crisis stuff from this half-witted a-hole Biden.

Sue

Hey guys, Hit has been Aced...

I have this vision of Biden, looking in the mirror, and doing a DeNiro performance, similar to the-'you talking to me?'-only instead he keeps going with the line-

"I'm in control here."

Plumber's Pal

Sue: McCain and Palin both are hitting the tax issue hard at every campaign stop and rally. Your question would be better asked as why the media is so silent that you think they aren't.

Sue

I have watched several of McCain's campaign stops and haven't seen him address the issue I raised.

Plumber's Pal

Ugh!

'KKK' etched into McCain supporter's car...

Clearwater - CLEARWATER Frank Armstrong was preparing to go for a jog this morning when he noticed his Lexus – adorned with a McCain-Palin sticker - had been vandalized with obscenities and a burned American flag.

Armstrong discovered the damage to his 2006 Lexus about 8:30 a.m. at his Sand Key condominium at 1400 Gulf Blvd. Clearwater police and Armstrong said someone etched obscenities and "KKK" into the paint, burned several areas of the car with cigarettes, set the flag on fire on his hood and may have urinated on the vehicle. Officers and Armstrong think the car was singled out because of its political stickers, including one reading "Nobama."

"This is definitely a hate crime," said Armstrong, a 41-year-old physician.

Police estimated damage at $4,500. Police classified the incident as "criminal mischief/hate crime" and said it appeared "to be politically/racially motivated because the victim affixed a bumper sticker supporting the McCain campaign as well as an anti-Obama bumper sticker."

Hey, thanks! Too bad I effed up a dollar sign on the pic and put a percent sign in mistakenly. Why oh why don't I have layers of editors and fact checkers? I've corrected it, but Ace hasn't gotten it yet.

Bummer. More to come, and hopefully correct out of the chute...

"Obma"?

No A, Jose!

clarice plumber

I blogged your deck of cards but don't know--as usual--if it'll run.
Maybe you should sell them.

hit and run

Thanks! My goodness I'm slow with this stuff. First had the idea almost 3 weeks ago and just now got around to actually doing something about it.

Sue

Hit,

I just blamed it on the code when he embedded your link and pic. That's the story I'd stick with.

Plumber's Pal

I find this disturbing, not filled with "a certain lyrical urgency."

Via Reliapundit:

The following poem has been published in the Guardian. It's by Barack Obama. I liked it quite well, and felt that it has a certain lyrical urgency. He was 19 when it was written.

It was published in a student journal at Occidental College in 1981.

The poet to whom he is writing in the poem is pretty clearly Frank Marshall Davis, whom he addresses as "Pop," and who is one of Obama's mentors in Dreams of My Father.

Pop

Sitting in his seat, a seat broad and broken
In, sprinkled with ashes,
Pop switches channels, takes another
Shot of Seagrams, neat, and asks
What to do with me, a green young man
Who fails to consider the
Flim and flam of the world, since
Things have been easy for me;
I stare hard at his face, a stare
That deflects off his brow;
I'm sure he's unaware of his
Dark, watery eyes, that
Glance in different directions,
And his slow, unwelcome twitches,
Fail to pass.
I listen, nod,
Listen, open, till I cling to his pale,
Beige T-shirt, yelling,
Yelling in his ears, that hang
With heavy lobes, but he's still telling
His joke, so I ask why
He's so unhappy, to which he replies ...
But I don't care anymore, cause
He took too damn long, and from
Under my seat, I pull out the
Mirror I've been saving; I'm laughing,
Laughing loud, the blood rushing from
his face
To mine, as he grows small,
A spot in my brain, something
That may be squeezed out, like a
Watermelon seed between
Two fingers.
Pop takes another shot, neat,
Points out the same amber
Stain on his shorts that I've got on mine,
and
Makes me smell his smell, coming
From me; he switches channels, recites
an old poem
He wrote before his mother died,
Stands, shouts, and asks
For a hug, as I shink*, my
Arms barely reaching around
His thick, oily neck, and his broad back;
'cause
I see my face, framed within
Pop's black-framed glasses
And know he's laughing too.*

Obama's brain

Who can doubt that Obama will destroy America's enemies with a snap of his thumbs and have all nations worship us within a week of his election. He will solve all our ills and turn America into a paradise.

For Obama tells me so.


Invest in Costa Rica now!

Sue

Wow. I read what the blogger wrote about Davis being Obama's biological father. The poem sure sounds like they have a shared secret.

I see my face, framed within
Pop's black-framed glasses
And know he's laughing too

Sue

And somewhere, I think it was in one of Obama's books, he is talking about a half-brother that is the only uncontested heir of Obama Sr. Anyway, I love conspiracies until they fall off the deep end. This one is teetering there but who really cares? If Bush can be the "W" of Oliver Stone's movie, Davis can be Obama's father. Pops.

Sue

My Gawd. If you listen http://www.hawaii.edu/uhwo/clear/HonoluluRecord1/Frankvideo.html>here at the poetry written by Davis, you will never, ever, ever, believe Obama did not know and agree with what the right Rev. Wright said from the pulpit of his church. He was preaching Davis' words.

MayBee

There was nothing Obama said in the early days of the campaign that made me think he didn't agree with people like Wright, Ayers, and Pfleger.
He's gotten more "I love this country!" as the election has progressed, but that's it.

The hypnotic effect of the cult of personality.

Jim:

That's one hell of an article. I only got through a few pages. Is it worth reading further?

Jim Ryan

Jim, I've only gotten through a some of it, too. I'm going to make my way through it.

I don't know much about hypnosis, but I do believe in it. The demagogue who can intimidate, make guilty, and make angry through non-rational oratory skills is hypnotizing his audience, in my view. The spouse who stays with the abusive spouse when leaving the situation is viable is in a hypnotic state, too. A salesman who can sell you what you don't want is a hypnotist.

"Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."

If they're so sound, then why do you expect them to be so unpopular? Don't treat us like were children, tell us why you're doing what you're doing and well be the judges on weather or not it's "sound".

AT article on Obama, Ayers, and Dohrn.

BTW, that was a typo. Biden's is a middle age action to "girdle the loins."

A case against universal pre-k education.

Remember, JFK ran a big part of his campaign on the "missile gap" that the Soviets had widened during the Eisenhower years. Kennedy was pro-America, Obama/Biden are anti-America.

David Freddoso says there's language in the Housing Act permitting the cut off of federal funding for ACORN

That poem was quite strange. Did anyone else recoil at the amber stains?

kim

E, there were a couple sick sumbitches depicted in that one.
====================================

Speaking of sick, I'm trodding that path to ask this question:

What does the Sullied one think of Joe the Plumber?

bad

Excellent news about ACORN. Pardon my ignorance, but does Maxine Waters face any legal issues in politicking at the ACORN convention?

cboldt

That hypnosis piece is quite interesting. Early on, footnote 1 opens with the following:


The only thing you need to do to break a negative hypnotic spell that has been cast on you is begin to think rationally, to begin to think critically.


Not exactly a profound observation for anybody who reads and/or argues with a reality-impaired Obama supporter.


I note that some Obama supporters are not so reality impaired, in that they recognize his shuck and jive for what it is.

Biden was clearly referring to something akin to the Chinese Spy Plane crisis that Bush faced within his first six months. It was obviously staged by the Chinese to test the new President. For the record, Biden, Harry Reid, and a good deal of Democrat senators supported Bush at the time. "Bush is doing a first rate job," Biden was quoted as saying. Liberal rags like the NYTimes, on the other hand, blamed the U.S. and demanded Bush apologize to the Chinese.

Sue

Did anyone else recoil at the amber stains?

At first. I didn't like the poem, but then it wasn't written for me to like it. I think it is all metaphors for their ties. Whether those ties are biological, skin color or ideologue, I can only guess. Maybe all 3. I kind of like the idea of him being just a regular African/American and not a African-American. I think I'll stick with Davis as his biological father for a little while longer.

"I have never, ever, ever screwed another senator,” he said."

Has Barney Frank responded to this statement?

clarice plumber

He's a Representative not a Senator so he's irrelevant.

cboldt

-- Biden was clearly referring to something akin to the Chinese Spy Plane crisis that Bush faced within his first six months. --

Biden was explicit.

"Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking," Biden said.

"Remember I said it standing here. if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he's gonna have to make some really tough -- I don't know what the decision's gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. "

It's a really stupid and untestable prediction, because there are international incidents on an almost daily basis, many of which can be inflated to be the issue that Biden claims to have predicted in October 2008.

I found the follow-on to be most audacious. Whatever a Democratic administration does is "right," especially if it's unpopular. Lemmings.

RichatUF

Jim-

Wow. Wow. Wow. It is a long article but it is required reading. Found a footnote to this as well.

One of the incidents during Obama's primary campaign that was strange was totally explained: when Obama was pressing an audience to vote early in the North Carolina primary. It was a bizzare mash of speechifying and hand gestures-he was using the hypnotic techniques described in the paper.

M. Simon

Obama is not black.

He is a racially insecure white man.

LOL M.Simon

McCain should hit hard and heavy on the tax cuts issue. On January 1, 2011, the tax rate increases for everyone, including the left-wing, illuminati tax and spend liberals when President Bush's tax cuts expire.

heh

They are going to sell Israel to Iran as a gesture of good will...

Obama's brain

Sell, sell, thAT'S PART OF THE fRENGI CODE OF BUSINESS ETHICS. Rerm,ember the profit part. And Obama is a Frengi not a Muslim.

That last sentence was the wittiest thing I've read all week! :D

... And I read A LOT.
