Obama's Preference

Wow. While John McCain is willing to stop campaigning to, you know, actually try and bring change to an economical system that desperately needs it, Barack Obama tries to compare being on the campaign trail to actually working.

Don't get me wrong, I've worked on campaigns. I know that it's hard work and a full time and a half job. However. He already HAS a job. He's a Senator. Obama delivered some bull about how as President, you have to be able to multi-task.

Yes, Obama. Good job. You DO have to be able to multi-task. You also have to be able to triage tasks.

I applaud John McCain for showing actual leadership and trying to unite the parties in a trying time for all American citizens.

Perhaps Obama should stick to dressing as a leader for halloween and not embarrassing himself by trying to impersonate one every day. No wonder he's too exhausted to do his actual job.

Sarah Palin: Lies, Truth, and Fairytales

To paraphrase a friend of mine, I can't help but wonder if Joe Biden feels like the ugly girl at the school dance with all of the attention being given to beauty queen Sarah Palin.

And attention she has gotten! For good or ill, she's been on everyone's mind. From the Daily Kos smearing her with (false, and nasty) accusations of having faked a pregnancy to cover for her daughter, to being condemned as a bad mother for pursuing a career in politics while having young children, Sarah Palin has raised quite the stir since the announcement that she was the (first female) Republican nominee for Vice-President of the United States of America.

Since the news broke that Bristol Palin, Sarah's seventeen year old daughter, was pregnant, vicious attacks have spread around the internet like wildfire. And we all know how dangerous and harmful a wildfire can be.

Both McCain and Obama have denounced these sort of smears, saying that the candidate's children should be off limits. Amen.

Sarah Barracuda(her highschool basketball nickname) sums her up quite nicely. Is it any wonder that John McCain chose this woman as his running mate? This woman who, in the course of a week, has given more energy to the party than anyone in the entire course of this campaign?

She is not, as many bitterly accuse, a token woman. She's an incredible person who happens to be a woman. This is not a reach out to Hillary voters. This is a reach out to smart voters, who, upon learning about her, will likely fall madly for her.

She is strong, she is a mother, she is smart, she is articulate, she is educated, she is beautiful, and she is the next Vice President of the United States of America.

What a great day it will be for America when a great woman takes that office.

Have you heard of P.U.M.A? They've been causing quite the stir amid the news. The Clinton branch of the Dem party have decided to stage a revolution. The name, "Party Unity My Ass" or "P.U.M.A." sums it up fairly well.

Many of the Clinton Democrats will have a reason to vote this fall given the addition of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to the GOP ticket. At least, those Dems who were voting because they wanted a woman, and didn't particularly care about the policies. After all, in the issues that Obama has actually articulated a position on, he and Hillary are just about equal.

Of course, there's the "experience" aspect, and even staunch liberals have enough sense to realize that someone with Obama's sparse record is in no way qualified to have his hand hovering over the launch key.

Regardless, for me personally, I'm in seventh heaven. Not the tv show, thank God. I'm referring to a state of bliss that can only come by having one of your favorite politicians chosen as as your party's vice-presidential candidate. YAY!

Sarah Palin is a truly incredible woman and I'm honored to be able to cast a vote for McCain/Palin 2008!

Due to "real life", I'm unable to expound on this further, as I would love to do. Future posts will delve further into this candidate, who, for many, is a stranger.

I think I have a much higher IQ than you.

I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do.

On the day that Sen. Obama announced Sen. Joe Biden to be his running mate, the media took no time in churning out old video. As I said in my last post, with 30+ years of experience in the Senate, there will be no end to the footage that will be trotted out against Sen. Biden.

One quote in particular has captured alot of attention, and, in my view, has summed up the entirety of the Obama campaign.

I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do.

Consider Obama's ill-advised Presidential Seal.

For a list of other missteps, I'd highly recommend this extremely well-written op-ed by Charles Krauthammer.

Obama has been operating his entire campaign as though he walked on the moon. Is it any wonder he would choose a running mate like Joe Biden? Someone, who in his own Presidential run, exhibited an amount of arrogance to rival Obama's own?

Another interesting point in this 1988 video is to hear Sen. Biden extolling change. Sound familiar? If only Obama could tell us more plainly just exactly what kind of change he is gunning for. If only he stopped his empty orations and stopped making us guess what his position on any given subject will be on any given day.

If only substance didn't have to be sacrificed for inspiration.

If Only.

Unfortunately for the Obama/Biden ticket, Sen. Biden was very right about one thing.

" It seems to me, if you can speak you're a liability to the Democratic Party anymore."

Defining Infanticide

As you may have heard, the National Right to Life Committee(NRLC) recently brought to light new evidence directly contradicting multiple statements made by Senator Obama.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, it is a law that would require medical treatment be given to any children who survive an abortion attempt.

Isn't that a no-brainer, you ask? Well, it should be. Unfortunately, when it comes to this law, there seem to be many people operating without a brain.
Barack Obama not only voted against this compassionate bill, but attempted to cover it up, even after being outed by the National Right to Life Committee

Actually, after NRLC revealed the truth (Rock on pro-lifers!) Obama went so far as to accuse them of lying , before his campaign backtracked saying that their candidate may have misspoken. Right.

NRLC quickly fired back asking the Senator to kindly tell them which vote of his had been forged. Looking over the considerable number of documents that NRLC used to back up their statement, it's clear that they let the papers speak for themselves.

For those of you who don't want to read through the rather lengthy report compiled by Douglas Johnson, Federal Legislation Director for NRLC, allow me to summarize.


Obama voted against the Illinois version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act(Passed Federally with no opposition). He has stated(many, many, many times-- also documented by NRLC in their papers) that the would have voted for the state bill had it contained the Federal language.

The Federal bill had a clause basically protecting Roe v. Wade (gag), which really was unnecessary considering that the bill clearly only applies to those who are alive AFTER abortion attempts.

Anyway, so Obama has been using this defense, hiding behind his undying support for Roe v. Wade (double gag) and trying to play off his incomprehensible vote as some sort of move for women's rights. (is a triple gag going over the top, here?)

So the good folks at National Right to Life decided to do some digging, and came across some interesting information that hadn't been previously revealed by the Obama camp.

There was more than one vote on the bill. And one of the bills INCLUDED THE FEDERAL LANGUAGE. That's right. The SAME language that our good friend Barack had claimed he WOULD have supported.

After this information was made public, Sen. Obama erroniously claimed that NRLCers were liars. I would say that it takes one to know one, but NRLC was very obviously NOT lying. They include the Senate documents, and their only commentary is to provide a written summary of what the packet contains.

We've got our very own Obama Two-Face.


As I said, his campaign quickly backtracked and contrived some reasons for Obama's [ridiculous] opposition to the bill blah blah blah. Frankly I'm tired of hearing him talk out of both sides of his mouth. Maybe that's how he has so many people under his spell. He's got them hypnotized by moving his mouth back and forth and back and forth over and over while speaking in soothing tones. Must be it.

It's a mad world.

Barack Obama is surely mad. Madder still are those who support him despite his inhumane votes.

Biden it is.

Not that anyone is that terribly surprised.

A correspondent from Politico was on C-Span today(Yes, I'm a nerd. shut up.) and he summed it up well by saying that he was surprised by the lack of surprise. The Obama camp derailed media slightly yesterday by sending out hints that it might be a dark horse candidate, but in the end, they went with the logical choice of Biden.

At this point in time, it's necessary to take a break from this post with a word from our sponsers. Since we don't have any sponsers, we'll have to make do with me on a soap box.

So this one woman calls in on C-Span, all angry that Obama didn't choose HRC. Clearly he doesn't respect women, because if he did, he would have put a woman on the ticket.

As a woman, let me speak to that clearly and plainly.

I do not want to be given opportunities because of my gender. That is sexist.
I do not want to have a female vice-president simply for the sake of having a female vice-president. That is sexist.
I do not need anyone, men or women alike, to reach out to me because I am a woman. That is sexist.

Is this what the women's rights movement gave to us? A chip on our shoulder and anger? We don't have the right to be angry that a woman wasn't chosen. We should be angry if the right person for the job is bypassed because of their gender, regardless of what that gender is.

The original feminists weren't in the movement to make women MORE than men. The goal was to make us equal. I'm not one to argue that men and women are the same. That's a dumb argument. I don't have a degree in psychology, but I have eyes. Use them enough and you begin to realize that men and women HAVE DIFFERENCES.

I am a Woman. I am strong, I am independent. I don't need men to affirm my place in life, nor do I need politicians to affirm my gender by choosing a female counterpart. Choose the RIGHT person. If that happens to be a woman, cool. But gender should be a secondary thought, not a guiding one.

~We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog~

So it's Biden. Ultimately a wise choice, in my opinion. Biden brings the experience and foreign policy know-how that to the table that Obama is sorely lacking, AND he's a good counter to McCain. Also discussed on C-Span this morning was the idea that Biden was brought on the ticket not because Delaware is such a hotly contested state, but because he will be more effective than Obama is speaking to McCain as a peer.

Of course, you run the risk of him shooting off his mouth as he has been prone to do. And, with over thirty years in the Senate and the public eye there will be plenty for enthusiastic press to dig up. heh. Shall be interesting.

McCain, in the meantime, is scheduled to announce on, I believe, the 29th. Good timing. Right before the RNC, and right after the DNC, so he's not competing for media attention.

Here's hoping he makes a good choice.

Obama Reveals His VP!!

The people have made their voices heard. There is one person that they want for Vice-President.

Hillary Clinton? Nah.. even her supporters know that if she was vice-president, an unfortunate accident would soon give her the top spot.

Joe Biden? With that hair! That voice! Why, he’s the democratic Mitt Romney! If, you know Mitt Romney ever voted on the liberal side issues.. Oh.. wait. Regardless, Joey stands for the established establishment and would take away from Obama’s message of change. (seriously, I’ve got a bucket of quarters and dimes for him if the man will just stop talking!)

Evan Bayh? Who has ever even heard of Evan Bayh? Or can pronounce his name on the first try? While a nationally unknown like Bayh(pronounced “Bay”) might help to keep Obama’s message on track, do we really want to send subliminal messages to the country encouraging them to go bomb the nearest bay? Think on that for a bit and get back to me.

Sebelius! Now there’s an option. Oh, wait, didn’t we already reject a crazy feminist? While the feminists would be happy, there’s a certain sense of irony in that decision. “Here, feminists who still want my opponent. I’ll prove what a feminist I am by choosing a woman as my running mate. Only, uh, not the one you want me to pick. Because I know better.” Yeah.. .. NEXT!

Tim Kaine. Now there’s a man that makes you want to cover your children’s eyes. Oh well, with Kaine around, Hollywood exec’s can remain comforted that if they ever decide to do a (God help us) sequel to Jim Carrey’s Grinch, there will always be a double for the Mayor of Who-ville nearby.

Folks, the point that I’m trying to make abundantly clear is that Obama only has one choice for vice-President.

Barack Obama.

That’s right. What better way to continue this absurd campaign than to nominate someone just as qualified as he is for the second-highest office in the land.

And really, is there anything that ol’ Barack *can’t* do? Why not just anoint him supreme leader potentate? He’s as qualified for that as he is for President.

Obama/Obama '08 - Because it’s not like the VP does that much anyway. “
