WTF Headline Of The Day


Pelosi: Obama should govern from the middle

My question is, why? Why would you want to toe the line esepecially when :

According to projections, Democrats in the House were on track Wednesday to increase their majority by at least 18 seats, a margin that would give the Democratic president-elect a formidable tool to push his legislative agenda after his January 20 inauguration.

When you have been handed a majority, you do not go around pandering to the loons and moderates of the other side. You take your majority and implement your policies. I really hate this attitude by some of the democrats. I mean, here is a golden opportunity to undo the damage done since Reagan, and what does the House speaker say?

“let’s play nice”.

Absolute. Bull. Shit.

Obama And Biden

Congratulations to Sen. Obama and Sen. Biden on winning the US elections. Great victory for these two condidates. And also congrats to democrates on winning not only the senate but also the house (although there are a couple or races still up in the air).

What I find a little odd is the fact that everyone is referring to Barrack Obama as african-american. But is he not also half white? Why is everyone so focussed on on his “black side”?

Rush Limbaugh

Needless to say that Rush Limbaugh is basically a pig in a suit. See here for details as to why. Here is the latest from the piggy.

“Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote in the e-mail. “OK, fine. I am now researching his past endorsements to see if I can find all the inexperienced, very liberal, white candidates he has endorsed. I’ll let you know what I come up with.”

He has shown his racist colours numerous times before so I think this is outrageous but what can you expect from a pig. Then he goes on to defend his words.

“I thought it should be about race,” he said. “I thought you liberals thought this was a historic candidacy because finally we are going to elect a black guy…why hide behind this, why act like it’s not about race?”

“This was all about Powell and race, nothing about the nation and its welfare,” Limbaugh added. The talk radio host also criticized members of the media for not addressing his claim that Powell likely hasn’t endorsed white candidates who, according to Limbaugh, have similar political leanings and experience as Obama.

“Just so you know, I haven’t come up with any,” he said. “I worked diligently on this on the airplane on the trip home from Green Bay yesterday. I can’t find any of these inexperienced white liberals that Powell has endorsed.”

He is right. For some people, it’s all about the race in this election. There are people who would rather incite voilence than see a half-black man get elected to office.

So I wonder how many reporters have asked Piggy whom he is voting for. And if it’s not Obama, is it because he is black? And if he says yes, does that not make him a racist?

I just find it funny no one has brought that up. If you find anything please forward me the link cause I could use a few laughs.

Update : And if he is voting for McBush because he is white, does that not prove that Piggy is a hypocrite?

Oh Dear God!!!

Wingnuts of the world will find any stupid shitty little molehill and make a mountain out of it. Here is a prime example :

What did Hillary Clinton’s body language give away at the Democratic National Convention?

Dan Hill, a body language expert and author of “Face Time,” told CNN that even while the words Clinton delivered offered an unequivocal endorsement of Barack Obama, her body language was much less affirmative.

“When she spoke about Obama, she really did not emote very much,” Hill said. “The only thing she showed was a very weak smile, the cheeks didn’t tend to lift very much, it was really almost what I would call a ‘crocodile smile’ where even the slight corners of the lips sometimes raise into a little bit of a smirk.”

“I don’t think that helped move the 30 percent of her supporters who say they won’t vote for Obama,” Hill added. “What she did do was appeal to voters at large, that she did more emotionally.”

Disregard the fact that she unequivocally endorsed Obama. No. According to the wingnuts, her mouth said one thing and her body said entirely another thing.

Michelle Obama

Just finished listening to the DNC speech by Michelle Obama (part1 part2).

Only the hard hearted will not respond positively to the speech. It was powerful and intertwined with the same theme as most of Barack Obama’s speeches.

» Family;

» Loving one another despite differences;

» Honouring everyday Americans.

I thought she handled the “anti-American” charges quite well and her kind words for Hillary Clinton went very well with the crowd. The speech seemed to be about showing what a great family she and Barack have and how much they owe it to their parents and their ancestors (references were made to Dr. King and woman’s liberation movement).

On the whole excellent speech for a prospective first lady of USA.

How’s The Coalition-Of-The-Willing Coming Along…

…..not so good, apparently.

SYDNEY: Australia, a staunch US ally, on Sunday started pulling out its troops from war-torn Iraq, fulfilling an election promise made by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

The country, which was one of the first to commit troops to the Iraq war five years ago, held a flag-lowering ceremony to mark the soldiers’ return.

And the end of USA as a moral and military superpower continues.

President Obama or President Clinton

This presidency is, I think, for democrats all the way….and here is why I think so…….

In the 2000 presidential primary campaign, 10,371 absentee ballots were requested. Four years later, there were 9,600 requests.

And this year? More than 40,000 — just in the Cincinnati area, part of an unprecedented early and absentee voting pattern across the state.

It is in part due to aggressive pushes by both Democratic campaigns. Some Barack Obama campaign ads end with information about early voting, and to visit his Cincinnati campaign headquarters is to see an effort both to get voters to cast their ballots early and on a call-and-rides list for next Tuesday.


“More people are telling us they are going to be voting in the Democratic primary,” Eric Rademacher, associate director of the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati tells CNN.

“And when we look at our polls over time, we are seeing a little bit of a dip in the number of people who are self identifying as Republicans.”

By the numbers, Republicans have a serious case of what you might call turnout trouble.

Excluding caucuses, some 22 million Democratic votes have been cast in the primaries held to date. For Republicans, the number is 14.1 million.

Is it just me or is this a re-run of the final season of The West Wing?
