Another Democrat for Obama

Sen. Obama has been trying to claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan by saying that there are tons of Obamacans out there waiting to vote for him.  When he unveiled his Republicans for Obama group during his Hawaii vacation, its membership consisted of former liberal GOP Congressman Jim Leach, Pres. Eisenhower's granddaughter, and Sen. Lincoln Chafee (who had already left the GOP).

Well, it seems that the group of famous Republicans for Obama is now down to one*, as Susan "Who?" Eisenhower has now switched her registration to independent which, as we all know, means "I'm a Democrat, but I want to seem 'trendy.'"

Keep up the good work, BarryO!

*I know that there is some former GOP advisor in the mix, but I'd certainly never heard of her.

Audio: Obama arguing against the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act

It's short and has a crappy U2 song in it, but it's a good start...

Let's hope there's more to follow.

A little Messiah delivered EPIC FAIL for you today

Via Hotair, we see this,

Barack Obama, in a discussion with evangelist Rick Warren about his Christian faith, said he had been guilty of a “fundamental selfishness” that had contributed to regrettable youthful behavior.

Then he confessed for the rest of us.

“Americans’ greatest moral failure in my lifetime,” he said, “has been that we still don’t abide by that basic precept in Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”

What, you mean like not taking a few days to raise the funds you promised to that Kenyan school, Senator?  Funny that some American citizen (of the same tribal background as Obama) and a horde of (I'm guessing mostly) American donors are working hard to raise those funds you never delivered on.
Hi Senator, I've returned to the land of the living to give you a brief lesson.  Can you say projection?
I uh, well, you see, um, uh...where's the teleprompter, you know, uhhhhm, projection...
I knew you egomaniacal jackass.

Joe Biden: Master of Disguise!

I think the verbose Senator missed his calling to be a Valerie Plame-like super-spy.  Someone alert Langley, and quick! (emphasis mine):

Upon his return, he appeared to walk back that denial. "I promise, I don't know anything, have no idea, have spoken to no one,” Biden said. Then asked whether he thinks he’s still being considered, he answered: "I have no idea. You guys know as well as I do. See ya, fellas." A Biden source told us not to read too much into his "I’m-not-the-guy" statement, saying he was pretending not to be Biden -- rather than stating he wasn’t going to be Obama’s VP. Also, does anyone think Biden would have been out golfing and smiling had he found out he wasn't the guy?
I don't know who he thought he was fooling.  Those hair plugs are visible for miles

Denver And The Democrats Don't Want You To See The Local Hobo Population

In fact, they are spending a ton of money to clean up the hobos and get them out of the way, lest The Messiah and his Apostles cross paths with them.

"We just kind of felt like in news reports lately it was like, 'What are we going to do with them,' trying to sweep them under the rug," said Ghandia Johnson.

The couple owns Sly's Salon at Grant Street and 16th Avenue, in downtown Denver. They decided to use their business to create a so-called cut-a-thon specifically for the homeless.

"We thought we could help some of Denver's homeless residents by giving them a fresh look, giving them real good self esteem and helping them feel part of the DNC, so they look their best," said Ghandia Johnson.

She says homeless people who want to be in public during the convention shouldn't feel ashamed about their appearance. That's why the salon gave free haircuts, washes and styles to more than 150 adults during the all-day event on Monday.

"It has been great," exclaimed stylist Bianca Powell. "It's been a terrific, wonderful, happy, graceful day!"

Who is "John McCain's president?"

Here's the post-racial, post-partisan, unifying candidate yesterday in Reno, Nevada:

So much for hugging in church. A day after Barack Obama and John McCain exchanged an embrace during a faith forum at a California megachurch, Obama called the U.S. economy a disaster thanks to "John McCain's president, George W. Bush," and chided his Republican rival's campaign team for trying to make him look unpatriotic and weak.

Nice job, BarryO.  Listen, even though I disagreed with Bill Clinton's decisions, he was still my president.  Regardless of who wins the White House this fall, they'll still be my president, even when I disagree with them

Grow up, Obama.

Yeah, McCain's definitely the one causing the Obamessiah rhetoric...

[Obama] was warmly received by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who called him "a leader that God has blessed us with at this time."

Biden for Obama's VP Choice?

This is priceless.
When Joe Biden returns to Capitol Hill Monday from his two-day trip to embattled Georgia, vice presidential speculation will rest squarely on him.

The longtime Delaware senator and former presidential candidate has long been considered to be on the shortlist for Barack Obama's running mate, but his quickly-planned trip to Georgia Saturday night at the behest of that country's president left Washington buzzing he is the most likely choice.
Whenever I think of an Obama/Biden ticket, I am reminded of these remarks that Biden made about Barack Obama during the primary season.
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy ... I mean, that's a storybook, man."

He doesn't think, though, that Obama can win the presidency because he is "a one-term, a guy who has served for four years in the Senate. ... I don't recall hearing a word from Barack about a plan or a tactic."
Would Biden pair himself on a ticket with a man that he doesn't think can win the presidency? Really?

These people still exist?

With Red China holding the Olympics and the Russians being thuggish assholes in Georgia, I thought I'd peruse the dpud archives for this old post. Just for kicks, like. I mean, we've got the End of History going for us, right? It's not like there are still some Commie holdouts (other than North Korea, Cuba, and here in California), are there?

Well, I took a look at the blog of the guy who posted that video, and it's a humdinger:

One of the most anemic attacks on Maoism-Third Worldism, in a sea of only anemic attacks, goes this way: First Worlders can’t be parasites, can’t be enemies of the world majority, can’t be not-proletarians because they then, among other things, wouldn’t be revolutionary … so there wouldn’t be anything for First World “revolutionaries” to do. So Maoists-Third Worldists get accused of “despair” and “giving up on the struggle.” We get accused of putting so-called First Worldist “revolutionaries” out of a job. Such attacks are lame in both legs. First, a correct class analysis does not proceed from the needs of these fake “communists” for meaningful employment. A correct class analysis proceeds from the demand of the international proletariat for a true materialist accounting of friends and enemies. Currently, the correct international class analysis is that First Worlders are objectively the undeniable enemy of the Third World. Secondly, this attack is lame in claiming that Maoists-Third Worldists of First World origin, with their “own” populations as enemy, have therefore precious little to keep themselves occupied besides a bit of thumb twiddling now and then. The most cursory glance at the concrete manifestations of Maoism-Third Worldism today gives the lie to that lame First Worldist claim.

Oh, what? Sorry about that! I passed out there, and my head hit the keyboard.

Seriously, I get why the people on top are attracted to Communism, seeing as how they get the power under the "Some animals are more equal than others" type paradigm, but how do the regular Worker and Peasant types stay awake during the speeches and re-education sessions? 

Oh, that's right.   The fear of getting shot or sent off to die in a labor camp.  I can see how that could be a powerful motivator.

Edukashunal Oportoonitees at Demokrat Convenshun

What would the good folks in the Mississippi state legislature do, if these intellectually superior Democrats weren't having a convention for their enlightenment? [emphasis mine]

State House Member Tyrone Ellis (D-Starkville) received a travel voucher from the Billy McCoy (D-Rienzi) led House of Representatives to attend the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado next week for "educational" purposes. These expenditures are apparently approved by the House Management Committee chaired by Rep. J. P. Compretta (D - Bay St. Louis).

The stated purpose of the trip was "educational". Ironically, they misspelled "Colorada".
Need I say moar more?

"The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude. "

Yes, like another young man from Chicagoland, Barack Obama is popular with all kinds of vacuous youngsters. Why, the Grauniad has quotes from a number of them, who even pose wearing Hopenchange fashions!

For starters, we've got 24-year-old Jordana Zeldin, who sez:

Obama has become like Che Guevara in terms of what his face represents on merchandising.
You said it, Jordana. Hey, some of his campaign staffers would totally agree!

Kellam Clark, a 30-year-old "artist and furniture maker" is wearing an Obama t-shirt, but remarks:
I was sceptical about Obama initially. I'd heard him speak a lot, and though I thought he was a good orator and said moving things in general, in terms of actual policy, I never saw it.
Me neither, Kellam. Me neither. He's supporting Ralph Nader now, but still rocks the Captain Bullshit shirt. Why does he wear it?
I live in a black neighbourhood in Brooklyn, and I work with a lot of young African-American people who have no hope, and it's interesting to hear them finally engaged a bit in politics. I want to support those conversations that are occurring in my neighbourhood by wearing a T-shirt with a black candidate.
Kellam is very, very white, by the way. And not at all condescending.

But my favorite has to be Viola Afrifa, 23, a student. Viola is quoted thusly:
This is the way that I can express my politics. If I completely share the beliefs of a politician then I can wear his face on my T-shirt, and I do with Obama.
Like, totally. On a shirt!

There are a few more examples of the "youth vote," which we're constantly told is going to be the difference in a Democrat victory, and they're all similarly stupid.

To quote another character from that particular movie, I weep for the future.

Because San Francisco just isn't liberal enough, apparently

An article from yesterday's San Francisco Chronicle titled "S.F. Democrats take a sharp turn to the left" (I know, that could happen?) details a slap-fight between the party's County Central Committee (dominated by hard-core lefties) and Mayor Gavin Newsom (comparatively moderate, I guess). Committee Chairman Aaron Peskin is quoted:

"We saw over the last many years disenchantment by Democratic Party activists who felt the past policies of the local party were out of step with San Francisco's Democratic values," he said. "We're reaching out to people who were turned off, but we're not alienating people who have been party stalwarts for decades."
And what are some of those San Francisco "Democratic values" that the committee has been wrangling over? Well, according to the article, they're supporting one ballot measure that would decriminalize prostitution and another that would kick JROTC out of the city's public schools "because of the program's military connections."

You just can't make this stuff up.  Seriously.

Bennion Spencer breaks the first rule of holes

When you say something absurd like "Jesus would vote for me," the best idea is to immediately retract, apologize, and try to put it behind you. You can even promise to go to rehab if you're a Democrat.

Not Bennion Spencer. He digs in!

Now there's a class act!

You can donate to his opponent, Jason Chaffetz, here.

Too bad, so sad

I normally wouldn't link to an article from The Nation, but this piece by former Mr. Jane Fonda Tom Hayden about how the candidacy of Barack Obama has, in some ways, hurt the Peace Surrender to Our Enemies movement is full of schadenfreude-y goodness:

Ironically, the biggest single factor in the collapse of the massively funded peace project might have been the rising and unexpected primary campaign of Barack Obama, himself an antiwar candidate. Not only did unprecedented contributions flow online to Obama but the Senator also strongly disavowed the use of 527 committees (which are named after a section of the federal tax code covering independent contributions). In practical terms, this meant that big donors would not feel as "rewarded" for independent expenditures as they would for direct contributions to the presidential campaign and other party committees.

Furthermore, according to a usually reliable Washington insider, Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid lost some enthusiasm for highlighting the Iraq issue because it exposed the Democratic Congress's failure to defund and end the war.

As things stand today, if the projected millions are to be spent on an anti-Iraq, anti-McCain message, it will have to come through the Obama campaign or not at all.

But as Obama becomes more hawkish on Afghanistan, the antiwar movement and Democrats face a splintering process between those who want to militarily defeat the Taliban (the Vote Vets PAC, Tom Matzzie, Rand Beers and his "liberal" National Security Network etc.) and nearly all the mainstream peace groups who believe that Afghanistan and Pakistan are deepening quagmires. Obama's endorsement of a NATO role for Georgia will divide or alienate the rank-and-file even further. mean that all the America-hating hippie scum (er, sorry, "mainstream peace groups") who believed that Captain Bullshit was going to end the war by being a different kind of politician/New Messiah are upset that he's had to move (marginally, anyway) toward the center? Well, cry me a river, pinkos. You're the kind of saps who went right along with him when he was yammering about how "We're the ones we've been waiting for."  What did you think was going to happen, especially once things had begun to turn around in Iraq?

I'd like to quote another man here who was a genius at getting media attention and ask the following: "Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?"

More creeping theocracy in America!

They told me that in George W. Bush's America, politicians would tie Jesus Christ to their political party. I guess they were right:

The Democratic nominee in Utah's 3rd Congressional District told The Salt Lake Tribune that Jesus would vote for him if he had the chance.

Bennion Spencer is writing a book about how Jesus would view certain policies. He says Jesus would oppose making President Bush's tax cuts permanent and that he would support a "very compassionate" immigration policy.

Spencer later backed away from his statement and told the newspaper he isn't sure whether Jesus would vote for him.

Now, this may in fact be true.  If Jesus, using his real name Barack Obama were a registered voter in Utah's 3rd District, he may very well vote for Mr. Spencer.  But alas, Jesus makes his home in Chicago and Washington, DC these days. 

Spencer is running against one of my favorite House candidates this year, Jason Chaffetz, who became the GOP nominee after beating a pro-amnesty RINO in the June primary.  You can contribute to his campaign here
