After all, she's far more hopey and changey than Obama!
(By Cuffy, who, I'm sorry to say, is a racist for pointing this out.)
Via Instapundit, I find this article that lists the promises made by Obama in one speech.
This one stuck out at me:
"invest $15 billion a year in renewable sources of energy to create five million new energy jobs over the next decade"
So, doing some quick math I see that the annual expenditure per job created would be $3,000. Really? What kind of super fucking awesome health care benefits does that come with? Leeches?
Let's not forget that the entire energy industry currently employs less than half that number.
Also, this one doesn't pass the laugh test:
not increase taxes on anyone if they "make under $250,000; you will not see your taxes increase by a single dime –- not your income taxes, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains tax"
Here is some more laughing material for you:
build "a new electricity grid"
Hahahahhahaha... in 4 years? 8 years? 20 years?
"eliminate the oil we import from the Middle East in 10 years"
At the same time?
"make a deal with every young person who's here and every young person in America: If you are willing to commit yourself to national service, whether it's serving in our military or in the Peace Corps, working in a veterans home or a homeless shelter, then we will guarantee that you can afford to go to college no ifs ands or buts";
Wow. Just wow.
Mark my words. I will personally blow every man in America. I will also empregnate every woman of child-bearing age with my holy seed bringing forth a new empire of light and purity that will last for 1,000 years.
Read the rest if you have a penchant for the absurd.
Halloween? Of course!
Just another stupid holiday that makes the grade for the Commies at Google.
Just read this at the King of All Blogs:
Barack Obama refuses to release the names of the 2 million-plus people who have given his campaign less than $200. According to campaign officials, it would be too difficult and time-consuming to extract this information from its database.
Any person with any experience using databases* (particularly the types of databases generally used to store credit card/billing information) knows that it would be trivially easy to process this data.
We're talking a day tops. More like it would be a matter of minutes. The truth is that the Obama campaign has already looked at the data that would result from such a query and have found that it demonstrates massive fraud. That's why they won't release it.
Yet another glimpse of the future under the Messiah's future Kingdom on Earth.
* - I forgot to mention. I'm one of those people. I have a lot of experience with almost every kind of database on the market and almost any kind of data you could put in one and I know for a fact that this is just a huge, steaming pile of bullshit.
If they don't have the manpower in their 500,000,000 dollar fucking budget, they should give me a call. I'll do it for free on my fucking lunch break.
Barack Obama's campaign has approached Illinois Rep. Rahm Emanuel about possibly serving as White House chief of staff, officials said Thursday as the marathon presidential race entered its final, frenzied stretch with a Democratic tilt.What a great choice there, Barack. I mean, it's not like there's any sort of recent congressional scandal (*cough* Mahoney *cough*) that Rahm might have played a part in, right? Of course not. After all, he's been a part of the Mostest Ethical Congress EVAR. Plus, he's been part of the Dem congresssional leadership that's achieved...um...sorry, but I'm drawing a blank here. (Not that I'm complaining about that last point.)
Besides...uhhh...you're all just a bunch of RACISTS!!!11!one!1!!eleventy! And what's more...Look, a shiny thing!

"My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day. Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can't cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves."
"My back is also suffering from spasms, so much so that I had to see an acupuncturist and get prescriptions for Valium."
Now, you may want to take that with a grain of salt, seeing as how she also seems to think that "President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets" if Obama loses the election, so we're not dealing with, shall we say, the most hinged person, but the idea of Jane Fonda crying herself to sleep over her worries that The One might lose has...a certain appeal.
We can still win this.
The Obama campaign has opened a new fund-raising front, I've learned, creating a nonprofit entity to bankroll Barack Obama's presidential transition operation, quietly in business for months.Seriously. This has been around for months and not one news organization has brought this up?
The organization is called the "Obama Transition Project." The money is being raised from individual donors -- no Internet, direct mail or events -- with a $5,000 donation cap. Under self-imposed rules, lobbyists will not be allowed to contribute.
And take a guess which signs they mention. For the extra awesomeness, it involves Peter Frampton.
Frampton, 58, is so angry, he called The Cincinnati Enquirer asking to be interviewed.
The British-born singer of "Show Me the Way" and other hits told the newspaper that one reason he became a U.S. citizen was so he could vote. Now, he says his American rights to free speech and political speech are being violated and it "bugs" him.
Never before have I noticed how wonderful commercials are. It's not until you're forced to go without the Geico cavemen for 30 straight minutes that you realize how much you appreciate them.Yeah, I can do without the Geico cavemen (that sexy Esurance secret agent cartoon chick is another matter—don't you judge me!) but it looks like I really didn't miss much of anything. On the other hand, tonight's episode of Pushing Daisies on ABC—the only network that didn't show the ad—was quite entertaining.

I know Ace is airing his suspicions as to the O-Bot's authenticity, but I wonder if it isn't so much a confession from a tortured soul as it is a mind-fuck game where the O-Bots want to taunt everybody with how AWESOME!!!11!1! and smart they are. Why else go on a PUMA site, especially one that is watched not only by the Hillbots, but many Republicans as well, to make your claims?
Just "airing a theory".

The economic change many people are voting for probably isn't the type of change they have in mind.You can read the whole thing, or if you're busy, you can check out my brief summary, tucked below the fold...
Well played, Axelrod, well played.
U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D. Toledo) whipped the crowd up before Mr. Obama took the stage yesterday telling them that America needed a Second Bill of Rights guaranteeing all Americans a job, health care, homes, an education, and a fair playing field for business and farmers.I've always wanted to visit France. If Obama wins, I might not have to. France will be coming to me! Score.
Marcy better watch out, she may have some high-profile, non-crazy competition in 2010.

It's a good thing they just make politicians say "I approve this message" and not "If any of this is untrue, may God strike me down" at the end of their campaign ads.
The rather fluffy story can be found here. I'm sure that if someone did something similar with Obama and Biden, there would be plenty of "giggles." Yeah.
