Final Thoughts on US Election – Barack Obama and John McCain

November 4, 2008 at 4:37 am (Life, Politics) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

In 15 minutes from the start of me posting this, November 4th will have arrived, and Americans will go to the polls to choose a president between either John McCain or Barack Obama. I do not support neither of them.

John McCain has run one of the most pathetic, transparently-fake campaigns I’ve ever seen. His policies are made up of the traditional Republican garbage : war, bravado, pander to the rich, no abortion, pander to the Jews (repeatedly saying he won’t “allow another Holocaust” in an interview with O’Reilly), race-baiting, fear-mongering, cast guilt by association, numerous desperate moves, etc. Not to mention he’s been beating the “I’ve been a POW and fought in Vietnam” thing to death in this life, its afterlife and in an alternate universe. He’s just sad and boring. Not to mention his clear-as-day reverse-sexist move of adding some random woman from Alaska as his running mate. McCain and the GOP can say what they want about Palin being a reformer, experienced, etc….the truth is that McCain simply picked Palin to attact disaffected Hillary Clinton supporters, nothing more, nothing less, and the simplicity of that move was enough to completely turn me off from his ticket since then. So for me, I would not vote for him.

Barack Obama on the other hand is full of shit, a total conman. His “change you can believe in” is nothing but pretty words and stupid policies. Tax the rich, handouts to the poor, wow is this Robin Hood? The Rev. Wright thing should have been his end. His healthcare plan is bullshit, and proves how ignorant he is because obviously Hillary Clinton’s Universal health plan is better for everyone, but he refuses to replace his plan with hers. He also refused to even vet her as a VP candidate…the person who got more votes than him in the primary stages of the nomination race. The only reason he’s politically alive right now and not in the ranks of someone like Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul is because people are still mesmerized (after 4 years) by the fact that he’s Black and carries himself confidently like all the established White politicians that we know of (Kennedy, Reagan, etc) and gives good speeches. Maybe its because he frequently borrows entire paragraphs from their greatest speeches. As Clinton herself said, that’s not change we can believe in, that’s change you can Xerox. His associations with Wright, etc are frightening, but I refuse to believe he’s some kinda terrorist, radical, racist madman as Sean Hannity would want us to believe…he’s just a user. He used Wright to establish himself in the black community in Chicago, he may have used Khalid Al-Mansour to help him pay for college, he used ACORN to make himself appear as a champion of the working class, just like he used (and later discarded) Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Advisor, to get a crash course on national security. Ofcourse we don’t hear much about that because ole Zbigniew isn’t Black or crazy like his other associations, but thats what I think he is, a user, which obviously isn’t as frightening, but a cause for concern regardless. In summary, his character is questionable, with a ton of unanswered questions, his policies are shit, his record is shit, why vote for him? Because he has a cute smile and could make a good narrator or motivational speaker?

The media will have you believe that this race is all over, but I beg to differ. The whole world is in for a rude awakening. If you add the margin of error with the undecided votes, not to mention factoring in that nasty Bradley effect, Obama will LOSE most or all of the toss-up states. A 51%-40% national poll doesn’t mean shit.

We can only wait and see I guess. Either way the end result is either :

4 years of McCain, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews gets slapped in the face. MSNBC will probably air a marathon of “Lockup” on November 5th because none of their “reporters” AKA Obama operatives would be able to face the screen to say a damn fucking thing other than cry their eyes out. Palin as comic relief here and there for 4 years, with Hillary Clinton contesting and winning for the nomination in 2012.

OR

4-8 years of Obama, with MSNBC being the new FOX News during the Bush years, with PALIN contesting, maybe winning, and maybe WINNING THE PRESIDENCY in 2012 because Obama fucked up, plausibly due to his inexperience in running anything. The end of the world.

OR

4-8 years of Obama. Real change we can believe in. Roses and butterflies wherever you walk. Eternal joy and happiness.

I seriously prefer scenario 1. Lets see what happens.

RFK Jr.’s Statement Makes Clinton’s Critics Look Like Asses.

May 26, 2008 at 2:25 am (Politics) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

The following statement was released from RFK Jr. in reference to Hillary Clinton’s comments on dropping out of the nomination run, citing RFK’s assassination in June :

“It is clear from the context that Hillary was invoking a familiar political circumstance in order to support her decision to stay in the race through June. I have heard her make this reference before, also citing her husband’s 1992 race, both of which were hard fought through June. I understand how highly charged the atmosphere is, but I think it is a mistake for people to take offense.”

……….Fatality.

Now if RFK Jr. can say that then Keith Olbermann and the rest of the Hillary haters should immediately go put on a donkey’s costume, run through their neighbourhood for 5 hours while yelling at the top of their voices “I’m a biased jackass”.

Hillary Clinton wants to “Assassinate Obama” says Keith Oba-mann

May 24, 2008 at 7:48 am (Politics) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

The Barack Obama Campaign Headquarters AKA MSNBC has once again showed its disgusting, overbearing bias tonight with Keith ”Oba-man” Olbermann’s “Special Comment” segment where he reacts to Hillary Clinton’s slip up of a statement earlier today.

Responding to a question from the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board about calls for her to drop out of the race, Clinton said:

“My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. You know I just, I don’t understand it,” she said, dismissing the idea of abandoning the race.

Yeah big deal. She said the word ‘assassinate’. This is just a “hard-working White American” comment part 2. Throughout the campaign she messed up a few times in her choice of words in bringing a point across. Here, she obviously just means :

A lot of shit can happen in June, major table-turning events (such as a candidate getting killed) can happen, as has happened before; anything can happen, coincidentally, especially before or in the month of June which can dramatically impact the nomination, so stop bugging me about dropping out.

That’s how I see it. Yes her choice of words was a slip up or is politically incorrect once again, but hell these things happen, right sweetie? We shouldn’t get bitter about it.

However, Oba-mann threw a total bitchfit (see video), red-faced, going verbally ballistic on Clinton to the point of him apparently accidentally breaking a pencil or something on set, repeatedly showing the comments on screen and saying that it was “unforgivable”. He even spun the comment as Clinton calling for Obama’s assassination. WOW.

Its totally sickening. From now on anything political I’ll just inform my own self about it through the net rather than listen to the Obama lovefest between the borderline homosexual fan Chris “Shiver Up My Leg” Matthews and Keith-Obama-man. I know Reverend Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ has proclaimed itself as “unashamedly Black”…well MSNBC is unashamedly Obama. The research to conclusively prove that MSNBC, as well as a lot of other mainstream news networks are slanting greatly towards the idea of Barack Obama as the nominee or even President is beyond me, but on mere observation any random day its pretty obvious that there is a bias in Obama’s favor…and this issue is just another manifestation of that.

The whole coverage is basically : Obama can do no wrong and Clinton is a bitch from the start and we’re just waiting to prove it to you. I expect a flurry of loops of the video of Clinton making those comments, to see the comments scrolling in the ticker at the bottom, numerous comments from their many political analysts and the like. This may even be Hillary’s “YAHHHHHHH” moment.

I’ve already resigned myself to McCain winning so I guess it doesn’t matter.
