Illustrating Absurdity

Chicken crossing by Peter Griffin


All Obama, all the time.  Not really, but with a national election three weeks away looking like D-Day for the Dems, there has been lots of ridiculousness associated with our Commander in Chief.

Take 1:  A man throws a book at the President during a stump speech in Philadelphia. Of course, the man was immediately detained to surmise motives (as opposed to the Panty Bomber, who was given Miranda rights, but I digress).  Apparently, the man had written this tome, and wanted the President to read it.  Neither bright nor effective, but in line with what you would expect from an O-bot.   Officials released man who tossed book at Obama.

Take 2:  I had no problem seeing this, having grown up with the adage, “All that glitters, is not gold.”  Whether the President gets re-elected in 2012 or no, “Hope and Change” is officially tarnished.  Let’s hope it ultimately ends up on the trash heap so we can get on with real life.  Nearly half of Obama’s supporters have now given up on him.

Take 3:  A supposedly revelatory interview done by The New York Times, ironically titled, “The Education of President Obama.”   The article offers self-reflective statements like,  “He realized too late that ‘there’s no such thing as shovel-ready projects’ when it comes to public works,” while waxing eloquent about the re-decoration done in the Oval Office.  The President has pissed off left and right-wing alike, so he’s basically using his favorite media organ to do more smoke and mirrors.  “Hope and Change” morphs into “Reflection and Introspection.”  The same old calculated moves to push the same old liberal policies.  Move along folks, nothing to see here…
