Since I currently live in a new place where I have no friends and we have yet to get a working landline (NEVER get magicjack!), I’m going to be spending my Saturday night watching the first season of Supernatural with Bohemian Wallflower.
At least Jenson Ackles is a smokestack. That’s how a cool person spends their weekend.
So anyway, here are some WTF topics for you to fight over. First, massive clusterf*&^ candidate Christine O’Donnell says she once “dabbled in Witchcraft.”
On Friday, Maher released on his new HBO show, “Real Time,” an unaired clip of O’Donnell admitting to a brief dalliance with witchcraft.
“I dabbled into witchcraft — I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. I dabbled into witchcraft. I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do,” she said.
“One of my first dates with a witch was on a satanic altar, and I didn’t know it. I mean, there’s little blood there and stuff like that,” she said. “We went to a movie and then had a midnight picnic on a satanic altar.”
I don’t… I don’t even…
But nothing compares to Obama’s recent gaffe. He recent shot at his own base, you know, the base that got him elected, the base that he expects to turn out in mid terms and keep his party in Congress. Yeah, that one. According to the President, we libruls are being soooooooo mean to poor Obama.
OBAMA:Democrats, just congenitally, tend to get — to see the glass as half empty. (Laughter.) If we get an historic health care bill passed — oh, well, the public option wasn’t there. If you get the financial reform bill passed — then, well, I don’t know about this particularly derivatives rule, I’m not sure that I’m satisfied with that. And gosh, we haven’t yet brought about world peace and — (laughter.) I thought that was going to happen quicker. (Laughter.) You know who you are. (Laughter.) We have had the most productive, progressive legislative session in at least a generation.
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Most progressive… omg… *wipes tears away from eyes* and people say he doesn’t have a sense of humor!
What’s most striking about Obama’s comments is that there is no acceptance whatsoever of responsibility (I’ve failed in some critical areas; we could have/should have done better). There’s not even any base-motivating vow to fight to fix these particular failures (we’ll keep fighting for a public option/to curb executive power abuses/to reduce lobbyist and corporate control of our political process). Instead, he wants you to know that if you criticize him — or even question what he’s done (“well, I don’t know about this particular derivatives rule, I’m not sure that I’m satisfied with that”) — it’s your fault: for being some sort of naive, fringe-leftist idiot who thought he would eliminate the Pentagon and bring about world peace in 18 months, and/or because you simply don’t sufficiently appreciate everything he’s done for you because you’re congenitally dissatisfied.
And I’m eager to see how funny middle class Americans will find it in this Fall’s election, that he was mocking their dissatisfaction over losing their jobs, life savings, houses, livelihoods, ect. as petulant whining in front of a room full of rich party donor sugar daddies who attended the fund raiser at $30,00o a plate. I’m guessing they’re going to say “f*&^% you” at the voting booth. WTF, Barack?
And for all the Obots in the world who might be surprised by these comments (really, why would they be surprised?), as MYIQ says,
OBAMA USED YOU!
