Obama’s campaign office in Oakland
A protester handed President Barack Obama a note while shaking hands along a rope line in New Hampshire today. AP photographer Charlie Dharapak smartly zoomed in so you can read the note for yourself.
I think the President handled this a lot better than Karl Rove did. I was so delighted when Occupy Baltimore mic checked Karl Rove and tweeted “First Occupy to mic check Obama wins.” Go Occupy New Hampshire! This is also the first time Obama has acknowledged (been forced to) the Occupy movement, I believe?
Tony Abbott: YES
The stripes work well set against the flames.
This man is the Opposition Leader in Australia. He was nearly Prime Minister. “JULIAR” is Julia Gillard, the female Prime Minister of Australia. The Liberal Party are in crazy, dangerous Tea Party territory now. They can no longer pretend they are a credible alternative government. As my friend Rob said earlier today, “I’m not speaking until they put those abusive placards away, is what Tony Abbott chose not to say.”
“Ju-liar” (coined I believe, by MP Cory Bernardi) unfortunately sounds like the anti-Semitic “Jew Liar” when spoken out loud (my friend sexenheimer was the first I saw to cheekily point this out). I hope an organisation like B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission hears it the same way and makes life very hard for Tony Abbott.
“Having spent the last few weeks observing the Rudd coup, then following the election campaign at close hand, attending press conferences and events like the Rooty Hill RSL ‘forum’, I am almost lost for words to describe the political media. But I’ll try. Fatuous pompous phonies, a stewpot of groupthink, narcissism, laziness, ignorance, hapless stupidity (hello Latika), menacious bullying and anti-democratic spite. An unfair quotient of shits and twits. And still they blather on, demanding that the country behave itself and get back to business as usual as soon as possible.
A pack of rabid lemmings, munted on self-importance, rampaging around the country looking for someone to glass.”
The Web is buzzing with information about how to throw an anti-Obama Taxpayer Tea Party, something organizers hope will be held today from Santa Monica to South Carolina. But no need to burn up your bandwidth reading complicated instructions. Here’s a simpler recipe:
Go to a hobby store. Buy a scale model of a U.N. One-World-Government Black Helicopter and a tube of glue. Toss the model kit. Sniff the entire tube of glue. You’re all set for the party.
