…or should it be Barackita? If you listen closely, you might even hear Patti Lupone singing, “Don’t Cry for me Argentina.”

Words can barely describe this, but hey what the heck… First of all, we’ve got the Nouveau-Hippies who have no purpose, don’t really want a purpose, but want everyone else to think they have and want a purpose in life. They say stuff like
I don’t like money that much. It, like, disassociates you from your food. I’m like ‘I just have $5.00 so I’m just going to pay you this. Thank you for your food and thank you goodbye.’

I won’t dispute that all of the reasoning for hating what the Democrats are trying to shove down our throats in the health care arena is valid. For me, there is another layer to hate.
Putting our health care in the hands of the government also puts the cost of that health care in the hands of the citizenry. I’m upset about that, but that’s not where I’m going. Continue to follow me.
Think about it, if you’re paying for something, don’t you want to have a “say” in how that money is spent? Of course we’re all frustrated with the way our government spends our money, and most of the time, we don’t have a clue where it’s going. Maddening. However, it’s just a little bit different with health care. Continue to follow me. Read more
As though he freaking knows everything about everything auto and business related. I can feel a disturbance in the force here in Southeast Michigan. Everyone’s heads are exploding right now in the region.
So now the government owns your GM or Chrysler warranties. I can remember a year or so ago as I cried out against universal health care that we should watch out as the government may someday take over car repair. It was a joke! Now it’s not.
Have you driven a Ford lately?
I actually watched the first ever Saturday Night (which is what it was called before the word “Live” was added). The highlight of my week as a little kid was staying up after my parents went to bed on Saturday and hearing Chevy Chase as President Ford shouting, “Live from New York it’s Saturday Night!” Gerald Ford wasn’t even particularly funny, but Chevy Chase took his tiny bits of clumsiness and created several funny openers.
Dan Ackroyd was even funnier as Jimmy Carter who even lusted after Sherry Lewis in his heart. Dana Carvey created comedy gold from a lack luster George H. W. Bush. Phil Hartman gave us Reagan with rosy cheeks, but you’ll have to forgive me, I didn’t watch the show much in those years so my recollection is not that great; however, I do remember this sketch:
But Hartman also did a great Clinton which was taken over by Darrel Hammond. Finally we had Will Farrel as George W. Bush giving us that great word, “Strategery.”
For goodness sakes, SNL has even given us parodies of presidential candidates. Does anyone remember Dana Carvey debating himself playing George H.W. Bush and Ross Perot? Norm MacDonald was excellent as Bob Dole.
The point is, SNL was always able to take even unfunny presidents and candidates and create memorable caricatures. So what’s up with their portrayal of Barack Obama? Are they afraid? Apparently I’m not the only one noticing SNL’s lack of humor.
Villifying Wall Street is uber chic in the Age of Obama. The campaign money was great, but now Wall Street is the symbol of all that is wrong in this brave new Obama world and they must be punished.
Since 1998, the financial sector has given a total of $37.6 million to Obama, compared to $32.1 million to McCain. But Obama ran for his first national office only in 2004. So McCain got less from the financial industry in a decade that included two runs for president than Obama did in four years.
As we’ve seen in recent weeks, Wall Street gets what it pays for. Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd included language in the stimulus bill allowing executives of the bailed-out banks to collect million-dollar bonuses.
And yet the Democrats’ endless favors for their Wall Street friends never sticks to them because everyone treats Democrats’ shilling for their own contributors as if it’s a Nixon-goes-to-China moment.
Here’s the thing – the Obama administration didn’t fully intend to throw their generous benefactors under the bus, not at all. For goodness sakes, the Obama administration arranged to keep the AIG bonuses in the bailout in the first place then feigned ignorance (not a lot of acting involved) when it became public.
Of course now it’s ultra cool to board a charter and take a rich-hunt tour of the AIG executive homes just to taunt them. Please take note that Obama has not condemned such actions – in fact, he’s eerily silent. Contrast that to President Bush asking Americans not to take out our anger after 9/11 on Muslims in America.

Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised but I so loved David Letterman’s brand of humor when I was in college. It was off the wall, with Panicky Guy, the NBC pages, Larry “Bud” Melman, viewer mail. Maybe I’m remembering incorrectly, but wasn’t he an equal opportunity comedy shot-taker when it came to presidents? So what’s with his latest faux comedy, bitter editorial on all the joking about the TOTUS?
The joke (if it was meant to be a joke) is so nonsensical as to render it useless.
This makes more sense:
Remember that Pledge drive I posted about yesterday? Well, it seems that one of their very competent volunteers, Colleen O’Brien, decided it would be wise to post all of the information that she gathered in the last two days on her blog located on the BarackObama.com website.
She posted it at 8:38 PM ET and it’s still there as of 9:26 PM ET.
Attended two local events yesterday and today to get pledges

Got 26 pledges. Was not able to turn in, except by phone. The pledges are:
Out of respect for the duped pledgers, I’m not going to post thier info. I won’t even post the link, but you can find it for your self at the BarackObama.com – you’ll have to look for the blogs.
10:08 PM ET and it’s still there.
11:45 PM ET and all is still there.
I hadn’t noticed that at 11:35 PM someone posted a comment:
The Brownshirts are supposed to be knocking at your door today!
Just in case you doubted that President Obama is still in campaign mode:
Seriously? We will be asked to sign a pledge to President Obama? Does this not concern anyone?
Well, my personal plan (should a lovely volunteer approach me) is to engage the Obamabot in conversation. Perhaps I’ll discuss Obama’s appearance on Jay Leno and how it upset me, a mother of a child with Down syndrome, that our president so easily, so casually, was able to make a joke at my son’s expense. Perhaps I will discuss the Illinois version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act and how Barack Obama was able to hear testimony about how a baby with Down syndrome was born alive after an abortion and left to die on a shelf and Obama was still able to coldly vote against the act. Perhaps we’ll discuss exactly what s/he is doing asking me to sign a pledge of loyalty?
I will take up the volunteer’s time because time spent with me is time taken away from getting other people to pledge their souls away.
Operation Disorganizing for America – engage the volunteers for as long as you can and waste their time. Be cordial, be informative and be strong.
Mr. Hopeenchangenunity puts this forth on the Whitehouse.gov website:
President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur.
Um, Mr. Obama, whose catastrophic failure was it? The governor that refused the national guard? The mayor who didn’t follow his city’s disaster plan? Oprah for perpetuating the rape stories?
