. . . spending alot of time recently with your head in the sand . . .
Jackie, from your trick or treat story over in the other thread it'd seem that, as far as the Things That Really Matter go, your head is in a pretty good place.
Nader calling Obama an "Uncle Tom" yesterday was a pathetic act that suggests nothing so much as that Nader should just retire from public life before he further embarrasses himself. It was an extraordinary act of arrogance from a man who is 30 years past his use-by date.
Khrist, he really said that? While I haven't paid much attention to his doings in decades, He was someone I used to respect.
Mark injected some life in with the worlds mildest troll . . .
Oh come on, racist intent is pretty vile even when it's presented in such a garbled fashion.
i'm reacting to the number of headlines and articles centred around the fact that he's not white. beyond that i'm not interested in his ancestory. like i said above, not a 'black' man, but a 'good' man. as a real piece of work you mean, someone who is over the US election and focused on the NZ election?
Did you see those offending headlines and articles here at PA? Nope, you popped in to strut your fine, focused & ever-so-politically-buffed mind. Forget my post, Mark. It was made before I realised that you're "special".
what i like most about mark's posts is the way they kind of break into rap, or modern poetry of some variety . . .
(Sob) - I knew it, I lack The Gift - where others perceive poetry, I see only off-his-meds half-baked homespun philosophy.
. . . no disrespect to to Obama; he has great teeth and and has said the right words.
After that bit of passive-aggressive damning with faint praise, it seems fair to wonder just what sort of disrespect you might be holding back from. With your obsessing about Obama's ancestry - hardly the central issue of his victory - you're coming across as a real piece of work.
If I was certain Obama, Pelosi Reid et al would govern like Clinton from 94 to 2000, or Clark or Rudd, or Blair or Brown, in NZ, Aussie or the UK, I would be quite relaxed, but we just don’t know.
Translation: Having finally realised that the future may not precisely mirror the past, I'm a little twitchy about tomorrow.
James - give it a rest. The whole ponderous-musings-of-a-bumpkin-abroad schtick was never really all that cute. It's the little down-homey Rushisms like hairy armpit brigade and Obambi that make you so special
You guys may want to wait until his inauguration speech for the rhetorical fireworks.
Bring it on!
Roll the turkey out by Thanksgiving!
Heard the Obamas Law Professor from Harvard, say that . . . it was Michelle he expected to be running for executive office, with Barack maybe making the best Mayor . . .
I guess a law professor would know more about these things than onetime Warner Brothers studio head Jack Warner, who seems to have seen suitability for political office in terms of casting. When asked what he thought of Reagan's running for Governor of California he was supposed to have said, 'No, Jimmy Stewart for governor. Ronald Reagan for his best friend.'
Hopefully, whatever Senator McCain advises will be taken by his more crazy followers to have altered the case.
Hopefully you're right, but I suspect that there's a thicker-than-concrete old lady out there who still believes that Obama's an A-rab.
. . . an astonishingly widespread and incredibly awful advert for downloadable IM smileys.
I knowthe one you mean - and every time I stumble across it I think of Sarah Palin.
