Interesting contrast to America’s half-Negro would-be king.
And you’re stuck in space. Some days suck worse than others. I guess I should be counting my digestive blessings or at least my plumbing blessings.
I know that it’s wrong to laugh at someone for being stupid, but I can’t help it. Barack Obama has been so damn dense about his church affiliation and how it plays with Americans of a different color than him. And now, finally, even he’s had it. You show ’em Barack!
I guess he’s willing to trade the 3,000 disgruntled church votes for the multiple thousands he’s lost over the last few months due to his resolute deafness. His speechifying didn’t work. The message that average white people heard was racism, because what white people thought was this, “If a white person said about black people what that black preacher just said about white people, there’d be outrage.” And rightfully so, by the way. But a black man can hate white people and it’s okay? And Barack Obama thought it was okay to defend this behavior?
Karl at Protein Wisdom says:
Moss is fully devoted to Trinity’s program of Black Liberation Theology, and on Good Friday compared the scrutiny of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s race-baiting and conspiracy theory-mongering to a “public lynching.” As part of the hip-hop generation, Moss calls himself “a theological DJ” — and in one sermon alluded to an Ice Cube rap titled, “Wrong N-gga to f— with.” It includes the lyrics “F— America, still with the triple K” and it uses the spelling “AmeriKKKa.” Last month, Obama said this:
Well, you know, the new pastor — the young pastor, Reverend Otis Moss, is a wonderful young pastor. And as I said, I still very much value the Trinity community.
This is the community which can be seen hooting their approval of the remarks made by Wright and Pfleger.
Black Liberation Theology devotee Dwight Hopkins predicted that Obama’s resignation would not have a lasting impact on this “community”:
“They didn’t come there because of Obama,” Hopkins said. “They came there because of the House that Wright that built. And it’s still standing.”
Obama went there for the same reason — and will not denounce those who stay with the church of the poisoned mind.
So the Obamas are leaving the church not because the church is a zit on the ass of Christianity filled with racist puss but because American humanity is being a zit on the church. The church is fine, but persecuted, by the American press, maybe now that Obama leaves, the church will be let alone.
Or, maybe Obama hopes that his 20-year membership at that racist place will be forgotten. Don’t bet on it Barry. The damage was done a long time ago and I don’t think this is gonna fix it.
You know, no wonder Hillary hangs around. She’s counting not on an assassination, but a suicide, politically speaking. Plus, go look at this picture. It’s terrifying on so many levels.
Ha! Don Surber calls him “Slowbama“.
Well, I hope I’m feeling better because the first thing I’ve eaten after trying to starve the bug for a couple days was half a Fuddrucker’s burger and I can tell you here and now that those things aren’t for the faint of gut. So, we’ll see. There continue to be rumblings down thar like the aftershocks that keep hitting China. So, I’m not completely out of the woods yet.
The kid’s performance went well. I’m in a position many parents find themselves in: my kid is good at something I completely sucked at and had no interest in when I was her age. The interest hasn’t grown and developed as an adult, I assure you. Other mothers, former ballerinas, living the dream with their kids, sew ribbons, and do all the other motherly things. I mostly watch in amazement and pay people to sew ribbons. Well, actually, I beg pathetically. It’s worked every time so far. My kid is almost old enough to do it herself. That will be a load of guilt off.
My mom forced me to take ballet one year because that’s what girls do. I wish I could find the picture right now, I’d scan it and show you. But picture this: a circa 10 year old girl taking the first year of ballet which is for little kids with the little kids on the day of her recital where she was shoved into a neon orange leotard with sequins and a short, orange tutu. The look on my face in the picture is pure self-loathing and hatred for the forces of darkness who did this to me.
I hated ballet.
Imagine. Now I have this girly girl who prances around in tutus for fun and loves to dance! loves to dress up! loves to be on stage! And, she’s good. Well, at least she looks good to me. Since I have no skillz, I just watch her and marvel–she remembers the steps, she’s having fun and she seems extraordinarily coordinated for the girls her age, but I know shit about this. She could actually suck and I wouldn’t really know.
Parenting is soooo not about the parents. I know, that’s stating the obvious, but dang if the message doesn’t come home again and again when the parent is enduring what looks like frolicking, albeit, rather skilled frolicking, set to music. I don’t know if my daughter has a future in dance. She might. And she’ll probably be given a daughter who wants to play tackle football. That will be about fair.
In the meantime, if anyone asks, I love ballet! Actually, I love my daughter and since she loves ballet, so do I.
I am so irritated with Firefox, I could spit. I don’t feel well, I was putting together a decent post for you guys and it was just flushed down the internet black hole. In some parallel universe there is a post that was destined for greatness (well at least mediocrity) and it’s gone.
Want to laugh? Go look at Rachel Lucas’ dog. Dog humiliation has never made me laugh so hard.
Gas prices are up, buy a scooter. I have a scooter story, but it’s humiliating and I already feel sick.
Hillary might be a redneck drinker after all. No wonder she’s so popular in the holler.
I never thought Al Franken was funny, but imagining Minnesota Democrats ponder Franken’s senatorial candidacy is funny.
More white hate at Obama’s church. Racism, the gift that just keeps on giving. And Obama is going to usher in a post-racial world. Right.
Links of good stuff here. I’m going to bed.
The last election cycle here in Texas included incessant “one tough grandma” advertisements by Carol Keyton Strayhorn. She was going to “clean up Texas” and “take on the insiders”. Her voice was so grating and her message so superficially disingenuous that I thought to myself that woman is not getting my vote no matter what. From the things I read and from the the things she said, Strayhorn just seemed to be a troublemaker. She seemed to be working to craft a “character”. And in fact, she did run for Governor based on her “one tough grandma” persona.
I don’t know Texas political history, I’ve only been here 11 years, but it turns out that the old adage “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” is true. Scott McClellan is Strayhorn’s son. I guess disloyalty and opportunism is a family trait.
Glenn Reynolds quotes Mark Twain regarding McClellan, “If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principle difference between a dog and a man.” I’m guessing the problem is even worse when the man sees himself as pleasantly plump.
I don’t know what this bug is, but it isn’t friendly. I’ll be back at this later. Right now, I have to tend to a screaming, feverish, miserable toddler between shivering and running to the bathroom myself.
Yeah, I know, I look back on these times and laugh some day.
Little Green Footballs has the details. You know, I tried to not be mean about Scott McClellan yesterday and just light-heartedly joke about his opportunism. Today, I’m not feeling so charitable.
When McClellan worked as Press Secretary, he was so dull-witted and slow on the uptake it was painful to watch. The press was clearly frustrated. The bland dullness and lack of articulate answers didn’t look feigned. In fact, I thought it was a case of pure evil Rovian genius to have McClellan as Press Secretary. McClellan was so bad he was good.
Below is a clip around the Plame investigation:
So, McClellan now says he knew what was going on and didn’t blow the whistle.
Well, McClellan wasn’t some Rovian plot. He just stunk that bad and had to be replaced by Tony Snow, who was fantastic. I don’t think this book will make McClellan come off as suddenly smart except to liberals who aren’t too bright anyway.
America’s health care: Yes. We. Can.
UK – “Enlightened” Socialized Healthcare: Sorry, can’t be helped. Your daughter is destined to look like Charles Laughton playing Quasimoto – learn to live with it until the effects kill her.
US – “Backwards” Healthcare: Your daughter will be restored in both health and beauty. Yes we can.
Choice. It’s all about choice. For the socialist’s claims to choice, they certainly do like limiting them.
A woman in Germany married the Berlin Wall and was distraught at her “husband’s” destruction. There is no such thing as a slippery slope. No. Such. Thing.
As an aside, VanHelsing at Moonbattery blogs over at Right Wing News with me. His blog is awesome, has loads of information, plus, there’s pictures. I know how you guys love pictures. I’ve added him to the blog roll. Go check him out.
