I admit I feel a little like a bystander at the site of a burning building. A building with really cool, big-ass flames pouring out the windows. Sparks cascading to the ground. A crash of some internal beam or section of floor, causing even more spark and flame to shoot out a window, or burst out a door. A massive and ferocious red, yellow, and orange towering demon looking down at me while I smile and silently root for the fire to kick the rest of the house’s ass. Not so much because I’m anti-house as that I’m pro-fire.
I might wonder, while watching in nervous excitement as the structure slowly crumbles: did someone leave an iron on? Has anyone, for Christ’s sake, started a petition against iron manufacturers? Have any of these clowns, maybe the guys in the yellow and black coats and hats, sued the landlord yet? And is it just me, or is that a set of oily pelican footprints leading out the back door?

It’s occurred to me why Barack Obama loves terrorists. Not that he calls any of them by their first names with any frequency, but he does seem to appreciate the fact that “terrorists” are already floating around in the ether of the public mind. It’s such a vaguely defined concept that not only does it require no specific action, but it allows any action to be bullshitably linked (or if you have an antagonism to the split infinitive: to be linked bullshitably), in such a way that your mindless flailings can actually be described as constructive. “Mindless flailings”, however, doesn’t give Obama the discredit he deserves.

I believe we are now witnessing Barack Obama’s Pet Goat moment. In that spirit, let begin by telling a story.

Is it time yet to call Obama’s presidency a complete disaster? And by “disaster”, I don’t mean in the sense of accomplishing stuff, which for Obama’s agenda would be a disaster, but rather in the sense of “complete display of incompetence and utter failure on his own terms”? I say, doggonit, there’s reason to hope.
From where I stand, not only is Obama not getting stuff done, he’s bungling everything he touches and looking like a complete fucking buffoon at the same time. He’s like a clown juggling live jellyfish. And nothing could make me happier.

Let’s see. The lone bomber tried to take down Northwest Airlines Flight 253 at approximately 11:10 AM EST. That would make it 6:10 AM HST (Hawaiian Standard Time). Given that Obama’s daughters are aged 11 and 8, I’m going to go out on a limb and assume they were already yapping about opening up their presents. (If Obama were your father, you’d be yapping, too.) Whatever Barbie car Sasha got this year, I can tell you it sure as fuck wasn’t an American car. A remote-controlled Bentley is what I’m thinking, and not some $78.99 model, either.

Yes, it’s sex in the age of Obama. Herewith, pillow talk for the politically minded: some for men, some for women, and gosh darn-it, some for the whole fam damily. Utter at your own risk. And hold on tight.

Outrage. That’s the only word to describe what I’m feeling right now. As of yet, President Obama has only announced plans to temporarily reverse his historic ban on human reproductive cloning for the purpose of implanting fetuses in each of his daughters, hatching two sets of Adolf Hitler octuplets, and allowing all sixteen Hitler youths to sodomize him publicly one at a time and in groups smack dab in the middle of Wrigley Field. Everybody knows Barack Obama is a White Sox fan. And what are the female Hitlers going to do? (For God’s sake, Mr. President, don’t ban aluminum bats just yet. For the sake of the children.)

Another company took the bait. Not that anyone had a problem with that. The problem was that top management was able to get some of the cheese out of the trap.
“I, Barack Husein Obama, am outraged by this behavior!” he says, his beautifully chiseled face turned upward in the direction of AIG executives, as if Michelangelo himself had discovered a way to turn a block of marble into a frozen, three-dimensional snapshot of monotony. You’ll have to excuse him if he looks like he’s not breathing. He’s “choked up with anger”.
Don’t you know, silly AIG mouse, that when the federal government serves you stolen cheese on a silver mousetrap, you’re supposed to eat it head-first?

“…the question I think the American people are asking is, do you just want government to do nothing, or do you want it to do something? If you want it to do something, then we can have a conversation. But doing nothing, that’s not an option from my perspective.”
– President Obama, Feb. 9, 2009
Mr. President, it all depends on what the meaning of “something” is. Since when did “something” only refer to American dollars and only come in denominations of one trillion?

“Do you support your president?” That’s a question that’s been surfacing lately, and though I have a sneaking suspicion it’s being asked rhetorically, let me take a moment to answer it thoughtfully. Do I support your president?

At least Nadya Suleman produced babies, and not a jar of piss or a brown smudge. But that’s just a technicality. It just means the checks she receives won’t come from the National Endowment of the Arts. The Nadya Suleman personal stimulus package will be postmarked with some other Washington, D.C. address.

The number of words in Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration address was 2,412. Here it is in 666.

Let’s move beyond the obvious historical aspect of the inauguration of Barack Obama to the office of President of the United States. (That his inauguration will rob thousands of decent men from becoming the first black president.) Let’s get to the important stuff. Like whether the event is “an” historic event or “a” historic event. (I’m going to assume you understand why it’s not a/an “historical” event.) [Read more →]

Immediately after Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich announced his appointee to Obama’s ex-Senate seat, bam! Obama comes out in favor of principle: whoever Blagojevich might or might not have appointed, Obama is adamantly in favor of the Senate Democrat decision to reject “any” appointment by Blagojevic. I live right next to New Jersey, and even I can smell the corruption. (And I say that as proud ex-New Jersean.)

On this, the anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, I feel it is my responsibility to update everyone on the prospect of the assassination of Barack Obama. I’m referring, of course, to character assassination by way of Internet. Although, let’s face it, character assassination is to Barack Obama like physical assassination is to a JFK mannequin. There’s not much there to be assassinated, and about as much brains at risk of splattering. [Read more →]

I may have just found a reason to vote against somebody.
