Hmmm…..grumblings are trickling in from the ranks. Things are getting interesting as The One’s MSM cohorts grow edgy. The more Barry talks, the more he exposes his nothingness, and we witness the Peter principle in HD.
Three press conferences in three days. Yowza! He’s like Superman. (Well, in his world he is.) And he’s sooo smart, ‘cuz you know, he went to those Ivy League schools and so did all the members of his team. What happens when Barry exhausts his talking points on the topic of the day? He talks about the really important issues: missing his Blackberry, Christmas shopping, the future First Puppy, and, drumroll please……turkey recipes!
Well, Dana Milbank (yes, of the MSM) gets indigestion and calls out Mr. B.O. for “talking B.S. turkey” and “running out of things to say.” Gasp! Is that possible? I thought the high-brow Ivy Leaguers never run out of important things to say. But what do I know, I went to a state college.
I’m sure VP-Elect Biden, who loves to hear himself talk, could help Barry out, but he seems to be, uh, mmm, well, sequestered unavailable.
The funniest (you have to laugh at these things or you will be on the max dose of Prozac for the next four years constantly asking yourself, “How did this guy get elected?!???”) is when reporters go off-topic: “First of all, that’s not the topic.” Mr. Prez-Elect does not approve. Like I needed to tell you that. Watch for yourself:
This exchange makes me chuckle. Obama interrupts Ed Henry from CNN whilst he’s submitting the second of this three-part question, and asks, “How many compound questions is this going to be?” Because dude, I can only handle one-part questions. Didn’t you get the memo?!?
Obama is such a tyrant; a megalomaniac enamored with this fictional messianic image of himself created by Axelrod and propped up by the media. Incidentally, a megalomaniac who thinks he’s the President already. These spectacle press conferences and weekly addresses look like an SNL skit. I’m waiting for Barry to say, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!”, but I digress.
I do not doubt that in time we will all see the emperor is not wearing any clothes. In time….Let’s just pray he doesn’t destroy our country and our families in the process.
The adulation and idolatry worship of the mere mortal messiah Barack Obama continues.
STREET NAME: Check.
SCHOOL NAME: Check.
CITY NAME: Check.
Already sealed: MOUNTAIN
Still working on it: B.O. NATIONAL HOLIDAY
Normally, accolades such as these occur after a person has performed well and actually done something. I guess just being “Barack Obama” is sufficient for his cult followers.
PDS (Palin Derangement Syndrome) rears its ugly head and the Left and the MSM city slickers are in a tizzy again courtesy of, guess who?: Sarah Palin! You’d think they were obsessed with her or something . . .
Doing what governors do prior to Thanksgiving, Governor Sarah Palin pardoned a turkey. While at the turkey farm, she gave an impromptu on-camera interview as the other not-so-fortunate gobblers were prepared in the background for our Thanksgiving feasts next week.
This is outrageous because? Someone give these lefties and liberal MSM elites a clue. They wouldn’t be such blubbering hypocrites if they showed some outrage at the barbaric practice of abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. The beasts are these liberal idiots who will sound a clarion call to defend an animal, but not an innocent baby.
This pithy, sobering email comment from NRO sums up the Left’s outrage perfectly:
She should tell the media that she apologizes and she’ll do her next interview inside an abortion clinic.

Yes, the estimable Charles Barkley, who plans on running for governor of Alabama in 2014, doesn’t know the capital of Arizona, despite having played on the Phoenix Suns for four seasons! You just can’t make up this stuff.
Oh yeah, TNT couldn’t help themselves by getting another dig in to Sarah Palin. Let it go people.
Since I am a home educator, Joy Behar’s comments about homeschooled children being “demented” caught my eye. (I never watch this drivel. Ever. I read about the story online.) Ironically, Whoopi Goldberg was homeschooled, to what extent I do not know.
The humdinger begins around the 6:00 mark and putters out around 7:30.
Ms. Blowhard owes an awful lot of people an apology. Will she? Doubtful. Does it matter? Anyone with an ounce of common sense recognizes that she is a graceless, clueless, arrogant, vulgar, crass individual. My daughters have more class and respect for others in their pinkies than this grown woman. Why she still has a job is beyond me. Why people listen to her and give her the time of day is another mystery.
If you want to exercise your First Amendment rights (while you still can), then you may send ABC a complaint here.

Freedom of speech is acceptable only when I agree with you.
The final tally of California’s Prop 8:
The people voted and they voted to define marriage between a man and a woman. Get. Over. It. Move. On.
Welcome to the Banana Republic.
Self-restriction, self-denial, self-discipline, temperance, moderation, spending freezes, et.al., are so passé. Especially if you live in Chicago.
Illinois has a “historic $4 billion backlog of state bills.”
The agency blames higher costs and Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s decision in January to extend free rides to seniors.
“The CTA’s still got to raise fares even though there’s an increase in passengers?” Rome, 56, said in disbelief. “Is somebody stealing money from the CTA, or does the head of CTA not know what he’s doing?”
I think he’s onto something. Gov. Blagojevich confesses:
Blagojevich has countered criticisms of the senior free rides and his veto of the transit subsidy by saying the CTA has failed to manage it money well, despite a sales tax increase for transit that the legislature passed in January. Blagojevich begrudgingly accepted the tax hike, but he added the senior free rides.
Now, nine months after the tax increase, a statement Thursday from the governor said it is “unfortunate that the CTA is now asking riders to bail them out.”
Thank you to all the veterans, active duty members, reservists, and family members of the Army, Air Force, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marines who serve in defense of our country’s freedom, security, and prosperity.
Obamamessiah weekend slobfest below.*
Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said God’s divine plan for the world is the reason President-elect Barack Obama won the election, and that God will make sure Obama has the vision needed to guide the country through current economic and social woes.
Speaking Sunday at Mosque Maryam, the movement’s headquarters, Farrakhan gave a speech titled “America’s New Beginning: President-elect Barack Obama” and warned the packed audience that having a black president will not mean the end of racial inequity in the U.S.
The prime minister of Antigua “plans to rename its highest peak after Barack Obama.”
Kenya declares a national holiday after President-Elect Obama.
Not to be upstaged, a civil rights organization in Kansas wants November 4 to be a national holiday, commemorating the day “America grew up” by electing Barack Obama as President of the U.S. Forget Presidents’ Day, they want The President’s Day!
To Obama be the glory.

*Excuse me while I go and take a shower.
If there’s one thing Joe Biden said of merit on the campaign trail, it was this:
Now, we have one of those possible scenarios looming on the horizon:
OSAMA bin Laden is planning an attack against the United States that will “outdo by far” September 11, an Arab newspaper in London has reported.
This is no surprise, but still jarring at the reality of an imminent attack. Even more so since I live near a major urban city that could be targeted. *sigh*
I hope PE Obama truly realizes he has been elected to protect the people of our country, not just to inject his ideology and transform our nation into something he thinks is better. The American Idol winner has been crowned; OJT and voting “present” does not cut it anymore.
