The worlds MSM and ‘da peeple’ get a Basketball Jones for Obama.
Global Obama Love induces nausea and vomiting plus McCain retching across the aisle! And was McCain actually half Democrat?
“Gawsshhh you people are racist! thats why i dont like americans”. The now defunct Utoob account of Lillomogurl10 has no problem with the startling Cognitive Dissonance of er, not being a "racist!" AND hating a country of 300 million people of all races and religions. Go figure. Thus the teen tantrum forever Leftard Liberal...
“One of the key characteristics of wisdom is can you tell the truth about yourself. In this, Joe Biden has failed”. Victor Davis Hanson.
“Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones
Got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo
Yes, I am the victim of a Basketball Jones
Ever since I was a little baby, I always be dribblin'
In fac', I was de baddest dribbler in the whole neighbourhood”.
Basketball Jones. Cheech and Chong.
All over the world, high level and humble people and all points between, are blathering like alcoholic street sweepers about Obama. It’s a wall to wall Basketball Jones for Obama! Yes the man who “when he ran for state Senator in 1996...threw out thousands of black signatures”, so that the other candidates running were disqualified, leaving only Obama. When asked about it he said “but they got a good Senator!” Yep, me, me, me, me, Obama. Check and nuance.
No but really. I heard an ABC guy say something that encapsulates so much of the taken for granted conceits of the MSM. Without any irony or self reflection he said something along the lines of “There was a nine page spread in the new York Times on why Obama was so successful...” Quite.
I’ve seen overwhelmingly how most of the MSM cannot be trusted at all. Especially with the MSM in Australia, expect nothing and you’ll never be disappointed. One thing they do give me though, is a clear picture that I’m better than plenty of ‘em, and Hell, I’m just a blogger! But then they are the old media and as Mark Steyn said “they would rather die than write”.
Drain the emotion form it and the whole thing is one vast Marxist joke. Dig link for The Peoples Cube.
“And the joker laughs at you”. The Beatles. Come Together.And gee, the Obama horde's look entirely as if they're doing exactly that.
“Then one day, my mama bought me a basketball
And I loved that basketball
I took that basketball with me everywhere I went
That basketball was like a basketball to me
I even put that basketball underneath my pillow
Maybe that's why I can't sleep at night”.
Basketball Jones. Cheech and Chong.
Among other thangs, Obama and Bill Ayers emailed and spoke to each other regularly over the telephone for four years after September 10 2001, the day Bill Ayers gave an interview to the New York Times, stating he regrets nothing and he wished he’d done more. Bill Ayers is a fucker whose lack of worthwhile character is tenured for life in the Marxist sewer of Left Liberal and radical academia. And Obama The Manchurian Candidate has crept along with him.
Here's the Great and Glorious Peoples Cube with Spontaneous Slogans For Pronouncements At Victory Rallies.
Dig what Vic says about how the last thirty years of education can be characterised as “dash [-] studies”, such as urban studies, women’s studies, environmental studies ad nauseum.
This means the almost total dominance of deductive instead of the reductive and empirical. And often in absurdly connected subjects.
"The Non-Linear Disposition Of The Marxist Trajectory As Metaphor For The Steam Powered Newt Dancing Of Twinkies Versus The Re-alignment Of The Herculeun Discourse In Woodshop. [For full title see notes.]" Old Joke, new joke.
Marxist bunkum without end, literally negates ethics, morality and the ability to discriminate: the basis of rational thought. Many young people understand nothing about private property, free markets and the Western Canon. We end up with people who think the USA cannot be good without being perfect.
I wander lonely as the crowd.
Thus you get privileged, spoiled low IQ nincompoop non-achievers like Nancy Perlosi, glibly and absurdly insulting Sarah Palin, the high achieving and un-privileged two term Alaskan State Lieutenant Governor.
Funny, innit? But people often say there was something wrong with those Germans and Chinese to accept such groupthink madness as Nazism and Communism. Well, peculiarities of the national characters aside, all you need for totalitarianism, is for the majority to all agree with a massive series of lies, which is not so hard actually. They’re doing it now.
Vic says the Left ideologue doesn’t really care about literacy per se. They are actually worried that someone may not have a particular set of political opinions: theirs specifically.
They’d prefer that “an illiterate student thinks ‘correctly’, more than a literate student thinks ‘incorrectly’, especially regards politics”. Victor Hanson Davis.
“It goes back to the ancient Greeks. Education is basically nine disciplines. It’s philosophy, history, science, literature, language, mathematics, rhetoric, political science. That’s pretty much what knowledge is. The rest is therapy”. Victor Hanson Davis.
“The Utopian ends justify the means. That’s what Bill Ayers entire life has been about”. Victor Hanson Davis.
Dig. As you know, this is a mentality that demands not equal opportunity, but an equalising of outcome. Yep, insane Marxism codified. Anything is then permissible to such a flattened steamroller mind.
“We need more oppression studies”. Barry Obama.
0070ObiWan: “Barack's atheist anthropologist mother (Stanley Ann Dunham -- yes, Stanley was her first name) is the only white Christian-born woman known in American history to have married two different Muslims of two races different from her own. Barack is the only Christian in the USA to have two Arabic names and a Muslim father and a Muslim stepfather and who attended a Church that sells Nation of Islam DVDs”.
The great Kathy Shaidle quotes the Steyner on the dirty Marxist laundry of Barack Hussein.
"The Patriots Have Been Defeated By The Parasites.
As Mark Steyn just said on Hewitt: "America is now a country where Barack Obama live in the same neighborhood as Louis Farakhan and Bill Ayers and be considered perfectly respectable -- but Sarah Palin?! She's that crazy weirdo!!"
Michelle Malkin on Cowards: The Character Assassination of Sarah Palin:
"Liberty needs a virtuous people to survive; self-governance requires virtuous leaders. “Knowledgeability” is a necessary trait in political life, but it is not sufficient. The elitist critics of Palin, so blindly enamored of Barack Obama’s ability to hold forth for hours on theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, ignored the Founding Fathers’ counsel: Character counts. In times of adversity and crisis, it counts more than IQ points, instant trivia recall and bloviation skills.
“The most important thing I have learned, from my parents, from teachers, from my faith, from many good people I have been blessed to know, and from the lives of people whose stories we have included in this book,” John McCain wrote in Character Is Destiny, “is to want what they had, integrity, and to feel the sting of my conscience when I have risked it for some selfish reason.”
Anne Coulter on The Reign of Lame Falls Mainly On McCain:
“Bush, of course, rode Reagan's ultraconservative coattails to victory, then snipped those coattails by raising taxes and was soundly defeated four years later. I keep trying to get Democrats to take my advice (stop being so crazy), but they never listen to me. Why do Republicans take the advice of their enemies?
How many times do we have to run this experiment before Republican primary voters learn that "moderate," "independent," "maverick" Republicans never win, and right-wing Republicans never lose?”
Laura Ingraham on Lessons Learned:
“First, let no one tell you that this election was a failure of conservatism — it was the product of failed Republican leadership. Conservatism gave way to "compassionate" big-government Republicanism, which failed big time. Too many on Capitol Hill abandoned first principles like fiscal discipline, and failed to connect with middle class economic anxiety that has been brewing for two years, not two months. When one loses one's sense of purpose, so too goes moral clarity and credibility.
Despite all this, and despite Obama's huge money and media advantage, 56 million Americans still pulled the lever for the Republican ticket. That is not nothing. It certainly is a base we can build on.
Second, we are moving into a new era that demands new leadership. You who were not lulled into complacency and stood for conservatism are going to have more influence over the GOP going forward than you've had during the Bush years. So take heart...
Fourth, communications skills matter…we got beaten in the PR department. We must cultivate a new generation of leaders who are both proud of their conservative beliefs and comfortable articulating them with vision, clarify and optimism.
Fifth, too many Americans — younger people especially — don't understand conservatism”.
“I need help, ladies and gentleman's
I need someone to stand beside me
I need, I need someone to set a pick for me at the free-throw line of life
Someone I can pass to
Someone to hit the open man on the give-and-go
And not end up in the popcorn machine”.
Basketball Jones. Cheech and Chong.
Debra J. Saunders on more Obama Reality Checks. [Though in Australia we spell them ‘bank cheques.]
"Us versus them lives; only the place cards have changed “Then Obama offered the White House chief of staff post to Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., one of the most partisan creatures on the planet. Emanuel is infamous for brandishing a steak knife at a dinner celebrating Clinton's election that he used to stab the table as he named each enemy, proclaiming each "dead."
So how does this work? Obama hears the voices of McCain voters and then "Rahmbo" knives more furniture and pronounces them dead?
Also dead: Public campaign financing. After reneging on his promise to campaign within the public-financing system, Obama and the Democratic National Committee spent an unprecedented $745 million on this campaign, according to the Washington Post. Funny, you don't hear Democrats complaining about the corrosive effect of big money on politics anymore. You also don't read many editorials denouncing negative ads bankrolled by cash-infused independent campaigns.
And really dead: Speaking truth to power.
Politico.com writers John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei made an educated guess, based on 35 years in the news business, that "Obama will win the votes of probably 80 percent or more of journalists covering the 2008 election." Only 80 percent or more?
The broadcast media basically tossed rose petals at Obama's feet — with one exception, Fox News. Obama's reaction was to complain to the New York Times Magazine that he would be two or three points higher in the polls, were it not for Fox News, which portrayed him 24-7 "as a freak." On Friday, Air Obama ejected reporters from the Washington Times, New York Post and Dallas Morning News — newspapers that endorsed McCain — from the plane. Obama is not in office yet, and already his message to the press is: Lapdogs only”.
Larry Elder on Do You Need Obama To Believe?:
"Does Obama's victory, as a black man, make you feel that you can do anything?" Someone asked me that on election night.
It is a caricature of America that, pre-Obama, major obstacles blocked achievement. It is equally a caricature that Obama's win suddenly creates opportunity that did not exist before.
Hard work wins, my dad always told me. My Republican father, who disdained Democrats who "give people something for nothing," taught my brothers and me to work hard, stay focused, live within our means, and at all times avoid self-pity. My mom and dad always said, "Ninety percent of the people don't care about your problems. And the 10 percent are glad it's you."
Dick Morris on Obama: Conservator In Chief:
"The Republican Party's role is to rebuild in the shadow of the frustrations of the Obama presidency. Just as MoveOn.org built the massive grass-roots base that yesterday impelled the Democrats to victory, so Republicans must go down to their grass roots, get in touch with their base and rebuild an opportunity to win national elections.
Power has been bad for the GOP, sapping the party's soul and eroding its purity. But opposition, especially when a socialist like Obama wrestles with the practical problems of capitalism, will be a heady experience for the Republicans. The conservative movement can be reborn in opposition in a way they never could have been as the governing party.
“So cheerleaders, help me out
[cheerleaders sing repeatedly...]
(Basketball Jones, I got a Basketball Jones)
(I got a Basketball Jones, oh baby, oo-oo-ooo)
[while Tyrone Shoelaces sings/speaks...]
Oh, that sounds so sweet
Sing it out
C'mon Coach Booty, Red Blazer, sing along with me
That be bad, honky
Yeah I want everybody in the whole stadium to stand up and sing with us
Oh yeah, sing it out like you're proud
All right, everybody watchin' coast-to-coast, sing along with us”. Basketball Jones.
