He came amongst us

So, could anybody stomach the MSNBC interview of Obama? Not me, but I got hung up on the HotAir headline (quoting Matthews): “He came to us. He came amongst us.”

Ick factor: off the scale.

We’re in one of those news cycles when my liver just can’t handle the news cycle. I scan portals, find articles about the news (articles with a soothing, congenial viewpoint), and learn what I know about what’s going on at one safe remove. Slashing at Medusa through a mirror.

Ace’s MacGuffin article nailed the general aura of unreality around the Obama Cult in general (and the Matthews interview in particular) best of all. I know most of you guys are regular Ace readers, but in case you ain’t.

This Aspie blogtroll will yield to nobody (_nobody!!!!_) in revulsion and loathing of Barry Soetoro… but truly, would we be substantially better off with the fellow who should wear a NASCAR style suit embroidered with Sheldon Adelson’s trademarks?

I admit it. I didn’t understand that comment.

I am personally convinced that the people at MSNBC would be fighting each other for first position to sign up as Death Camp guards to eliminate troublesome non-liberals….

First, I offer this news item:


Second, I submit that a 3D version of the picture above would be appropriate for the statue.

They would not be the only ones. In fact most [all?] of the Democrat Party, and a metric butt-load [1/2 tun or 475-480 liters] of Institutional Republicans will be in that scrum.

I try to ignore anything Obama says or does, or anything his fellow travelers say or do, or anything the media says/writes because I can’t stop him. Apparently no one else can or will.

So three more years and this national nightmare will be over. We just need Ted Kopple to count up the days every evening “America Held Hostage” until it’s finally over.

I’ve (apparently) led a far-too-sheltered life of late – can someone kindly explain to me a) just whodahell is, was or might have been Sheldon Adelson, and b) more-or-less whatdahell that has to do (if anything) with either Nascar suits (the wearing of…) or Li’l Obambam. the Choom-Gang Chump, appearing in Beatific Pose just like the poseur he is and always has been?

My Inquiring Mind rilly wants ta know…

(My UN-Inquiring Mind rilly doesn’t giv a rip, and is off to get a Cold One from the fridge – hustle it up, before ‘e gets back and tries to hog both the mouse AND the keyboard, probably to go play Candy Crush or some similar mindless drivel…)

…three more years and this national nightmare will be over.

Hahahahahahaaaa!!!…You wish, scooter. It ain’t over ’till it’s over – and, with Democraps and RINOs rampant in DeeCee and elsewheres, it ain’t necessarily so even then.

On a positive note, I am learning lots of great things about how to pay for health care without insurance. In case, you know, I wind up being uninsured which may well happen this time next year.

Its odd to me that the uber creepy way the cultic followers of Obama behave seems to have no effect on his popularity. Its very, very disturbing to see the blasphemous idolatry sprayed on the president by these people.’

Remember that cutout of Bush that children were praying at in “Jesus Camp?” They weren’t – they were praying FOR President Bush. But it still made me feel uncomfortable and icky and it diminished the president by association.

Somehow, people just shrug at the votive candles, messianic imagery, the halos, the “lightworker” language and this stuff. I just don’t understand.

The simplest way I can see to deal with the whole issue is to chop Obama into enough pieces to feed all of his followers & then wait three days to see if he comes back again.

Jebus on a pogo stick… don’t you people own keyboards?

Sheldon Adelson, gambling magnate from Macau and Chosen-American was Willard “Mitt” Romney’s sponsor to such an extent that Mitt should have worn a suit embroidered with corporate logos featuring Sheldon’s handsome visage. A la Nascar driver.

And Barry The Choom Gangsta is not really that far from Mitt in his 2012 incarnation. Clicky linky?

Equipped, out.

True ’nuff, mojo…It Stares Back!

With, often enough, the bland, cold gaze of the Basilisk, y’know?…

Oh, and Very ‘Quipped – sorry, dude (or dudess, as the case may be), but he/she/it who makes with the too-too-obscure-fer-us-ord’nery-folk references may well be called ‘pon to essplain same. Plus, I don’t do Linky-Lookie on a whim of a wish, these days, on account’a I’m a Certified (and possibly Certifiable, as well) Olde Pharte, entitled by greatly accumulated age-without-particular-wisdom to be a tad cranky and (I admit it) lazy that way – may not have all that much time to waste on Google-piffle.

And no, I would agree – Choom-Choom Chucklehead and Da Mitten vary mostly in degree, not hardly at all in type or consequences. Last November’s “big electoral event” was a case of distinction without useful difference, no matter how the Mormon Magicician tried to make it so. If it had somehow gone the other way (not even much of a slim chance, much less a fat one – it was destined to be close, and rule of Big-Time ‘Lections Thumb-On-The-Scales is now: If it’s close, the Leftys will steal it. Period, full stop, etc.), we’d have had a brief pause, followed by a (perhaps marginal) continued slither on the downhill Economic Slip ‘N Slide that is continuing national fate in these parlous times. So…there’s that, then.

I’ve been following the polls since Obama unleashed the KRAKEN! – ah, er – ObamaCare websites, and it’s not pretty.

Obama is destined to become the Jim Jones of modern politics.

When he goes down, he’s going to take as many of us with him as he can. Hopefully they are all Democrats – and a few squishy Republicans. Yeah, I’m looking at you, McCain and Boehner.

J.S. Bridges,
reading your prose is like re-learning to punch Hollerith cards.

Does Adelson know this? Because, you know, Newt.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
