Sticker Shock

A story from my friend Steve...

Some bozo hailed me at a traffic light yesterday and said "Hey, somebody put some kind of blue shit on your bumper!"

"Oh. Thanks, well I'll check it out when I get home."

Nothing blue on my bumper but the Obama 08 sticker.

I hate it when people are right for all the wrong reasons... What wouldn't I have given to have told the guy "Fuck yeah... I thought I was voting for a Kenyan Muslim socialist, not another republican asshole."

A Brave DFH Takes the Teabag Mic

Nice work, Sinfonian.

I'm wondering if any of them, after cheering that they make less than $250,000 and having Sinfonian point out to them that they'll get a tax cut, thought to themselves, "Is that really true?"

It might be the first time they heard the news, since they probably didn't listen when Obama said it.

Update!!!: He made it on to Olbermann!!! Congratulations, you unemployed blogger named Jeff!

The speech was great.

What's even greater?

We no longer have the president who drinks the kool-aid of evil.

Let us all raise our glasses of elitist chardonnay!

Renewing America's Promise

A brand new day.

(who's surprised that I'm not the first person to think of this song in this context?)

Dear Mr. President

"Meanwhile, about Mr. Obama: while it’s probably in his short-term political interests to forgive and forget, next week he’s going to swear to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” That’s not a conditional oath to be honored only when it’s convenient.

And to protect and defend the Constitution, a president must do more than obey the Constitution himself; he must hold those who violate the Constitution accountable. So Mr. Obama should reconsider his apparent decision to let the previous administration get away with crime. Consequences aside, that’s not a decision he has the right to make."

Puttin' On The Ritz

jk posted this last night at the tavern*
George Will says Obama is the Fred Astaire of politics, you can't take your eyes off him, he's a master of motion, but like Fred Astaire you wouldn't want his hands on a nuclear weapon.

I thought it was a reference to a new quote, but when I googled, I discovered it was from a piece in the Washington Post, 30 December, 2007.
So far, Obama is the Fred Astaire of politics -- graceful and elegant, with a surface so pleasing to the eye that it seems mistaken, even greedy, to demand depth. No one, however, would have given Astaire control of nuclear weapons, so attention must be paid to Obama's political as well as aesthetic qualities.

Of course I hip-hip-hoorayed. Then I remembered what WGG says.
In the Corporate State, corporate media are State Media.

I'm dancin' as fast as I can!

*I know that it is commonly referred to, even by me, as "the crack den," but now that I'm blogging (gasp!), it doesn't seem so funny to say that I hang out in a crack den! "Tavern" seems to more accurately and flatteringly describe the place.
