Obamabots, Again

Once Upon a Time…: It’s the 1930s, and You Are There

I want to mention the following, only because I am still so gobsmacked by it. A little while ago, in a fleeting moment of distraction, I turned my radio to the Stephanie Miller show. No more links for her; I gave her a link some months ago in connection with her grotesquely awful comments about the tasering of Andrew Meyer (she was Commentary Four). Miller is on vacation this week, so a couple of guest hosts are filling in.

The subject was Obama, and the comments in general were fairly horrifying, but in the way that has been typical for several months now. “Oh, his message is so wonderful!” What’s that message? “Hope! Change!” And what’s the nature of that hope and change?

So much for specifics.

Then another caller came on the line. She began by announcing that, of course, in general she doesn’t believe any of that nonsense about God controlling our national destiny, and she certainly doesn’t believe that God chose that awful George Bush to be our president.

BUT, she burbled on, she absolutely believes that Barack Obama has been ordained by God to lead the United States of America. AND, she further oozed, look at the physical effect he has on people! This, she portentously announced, IS. NOT. A. COINCIDENCE.

THIS. IS. SIGNIFICANT.

TC: I learned to call this crap Mussolini. But then, I went to school when nun’s wielding rulers ruled the roost, an we never trusted ANYONE attached to the government that we didn’t have their home phone number….

How Do You Define “audacity”?

Mr. Geraghty is Unamused

Some would say it’s refusing to do any joint town hall meeting appearances with your rival on dates besides July 4 (when no one will be watching) and August (when everyone will be on vacation, if they can afford the gas prices), while at the same time, when asked, “What part of the campaign have you enjoyed the most?” responding with the answer…

I love the town-hall meetings, where I’m just interacting with voters, and they’re asking me questions and making comments. There’s an exchange there that’s real. I hear their stories… [ellipses in original] that actually is what then informs my speeches and the message that I’m delivering.

… as Barack Obama says in the latest issue of Rolling Stone. (It’s not online, but it’s the issue that has his face on the cover with no headline or caption. I guess putting anything else on the cover would be “just words.”)

But I would define audacity as making a counteroffer to do town hall meetings when no one is watching, suggesting that Obama cowers at the thought of an unscripted joint appearance with McCain, and then saying, in that same interview, “I don’t do cowering.”

Well, it seems it can’t be defined as “typical Chicago-style bullshit; same as their pizza,” since calling a spade a spade is an inherently racist statement (as is calling a loaf of bread with cheese and tomato sauce smeared on top a gastronomic delight).

PS: Next to “audacity”, let’s add misogyny!
