British Journalist Skewers the Messiah

Thank God....finally, a British journalist asks, "can we make fun of Obama?"

Yes we can.

So far, the only attempts to roast Barak Obama in the US have come in the form of a SNL skit making fun of the old media's slavish devotion to Obama, and a too close to the bone cartoon satire on the cover of the New Yorker magazine, to which the Obama campaign reacted like a typical bunch of oversensitive whiners. You CAN'T make fun of the Messiah!

Yes we can!

But it took a Brit to do it right! Gerard Baker does an amazing job of skewering the cult of Obama, and you had best read it without your coffee in your hand unless you want to see it all over your keyboard. Side splittingly funny....the razor sharp British humor we've all heard about, but rarely experience outside of a Monty Python movie.

In an article titled "He Ventured Forth to Bring Light to the World," Baker slices and dices Obama's cult of personality and the fawning, obsessed press for the world to see, and his witty commentary cuts right to the bone.

And it came to pass, in the eighth year of the reign of the evil Bush the Younger (The Ignorant), when the whole land from the Arabian desert to the shores of the Great Lakes had been laid barren, that a Child appeared in the wilderness.

The Child was blessed in looks and intellect. Scion of a simple family, offspring of a miraculous union, grandson of a typical white person and an African peasant. And yea, as he grew, the Child walked in the path of righteousness, with only the occasional detour into the odd weed and a little blow.

When he was twelve years old, they found him in the temple in the City of Chicago, arguing the finer points of community organisation with the Prophet Jeremiah and the Elders. And the Elders were astonished at what they heard and said among themselves: “Verily, who is this Child that he opens our hearts and minds to the audacity of hope?” In the great Battles of Caucus and Primary he smote the conniving Hillary, wife of the deposed King Bill the Priapic and their barbarian hordes of Working Class Whites.

Hilarious. Read the rest here.

It's really too bad that the American press is so in the tank for Obama, as he's a rich target for satire. Candidates for POTUS have to tread a fine line between looking "presidential" and being presumptuous. Obama has not only stepped across that fine line, he has set a new standard in "audacity." Channeling JFK by staging a rally in Germany? Co-opting the Great Seal of the United States? Puleeze.....

The Pig in the Poke

There is an old expression about not buying a "pig in a poke." A poke, is an old term for a bag, so the expression essentially says, don't buy something sight unseen, because you may get ripped off. The Democrat Party has bought itself a pig in a poke, and the mainstream media is so wholly in the tank for Obama, that they have stepped up their coverage of him in order to convince the voting public to buy that pig, too, regardless of his lack of experience, his typical leftist grasp of history (uhm...none.), and his unapolagetic friends and backers who are former domestic terrorists....

I'm not one to quote polls, but even Rassmussen shows that more than 50% of the voting public believes the media favors Obama. Gee, do ya think?

McCain has been to Iraq many times, and so far, not one of the "news royalty" has deigned to fly along and broadcast the news from wherever, yet Obama goes, and sure enough, so does the fawning press. And wouldn't you know, the anchors of all three major networks are going too....Sheesh, it's sickening.

I still have faith that the sane, voting public will not buy into this attempt to shove socialism down our throats, and despite the money and the fawning press, Obama will lose in the general election.

The totally delicious part of all this is the shock and outrage on the day AFTER election day when the left realizes that despite their best efforts and all the money they could spend, in the end, they lost again, and hopefully, for quite some time.

Pass the popcorn.

The Devil and Barak Obama

"Above all else, the Devil cannot stand to be mocked." -- C.S. Lewis

The Narcissist in Chief is at it again. This week The New Yorker magazine came out with a cover that depicts Obama and the lovely Michelle as radical, fist bumping muslims who will burn the American flag in their rush to lose the war in Iraq.

Of course, the first thing the Obama campaign did was squeal like stuck pigs that the cover was "insensitive and offensive." What a bunch of whiners. The New Yorker is famous for skewering political figures on their cover (a 2006 cover depicted Bush and Cheney as the 2 gay cowboys from Brokeback Mountain), so the Obama camp should be happy that The New Yorker chose to skewer them....any publicity is good publicity, isn't it?

Unless there's a grain of truth to the subject matter and said cartoon cuts it a bit toooo close to said truth. Methinks the Ivy Tower liberals are too sophisticated for their own good.

Personally, I think it's disingenuous to paint Obama as a fifth column muslim. He may sympathise with muslims because it's the politically correct, leftist thing to do, but I don't believe that he is religious at all....after all, how can the Messiah be religious when he's at the center of the cult? Obama worships at no altar but that of his own ambition, fed and nurtured in the smoky back rooms of the Chicago political machine that spawned him, and is fooling nobody but the mindless leftist drones that would follow anybody who is as anti-mainstream America as Obama led them to believe he was in the primaries. Of course, those extreme lefties are always the jilted bride, waiting at the altar of their political ambition for the anointed prince to show up, which, of course, he never does.

Guess what, lefties? He's gonna jilt you again....hope you haven't bought your new duds for the inauguration ball that won't be happening.

Now the rumor is that the Hillary folks are negotiating for a floor vote with Hillary's name on the ballot during the convention, which the Obamabots are fighting tooth and nail (scared of a little buyer's remorse??). Floor votes have typically, in the past, been little more than a show for the nominee, but the Obama folks don't trust Hillary's supporters or their delegates, apparently, and I can't wait to see if it happens.

Pass the popcorn.
