Like an 18-year-old runaway on the casting couch minutes before her first porn shoot, I await with a mixture of excitement and trepidation as I prepare to cross through airport security. Sure, I’m going to be violated by a husky man in a crew cut, and we’ll both probably lose a bit of our souls in the process, but once I step foot on European soil – moments before my wallet and passport are lifted by a gypsy child – it’ll all be worth it. Kind of.
So, I’m catching up on news, columns, etc. and, as expected, there was yet another flowering piece on Obama and just how close he is to a caramel Jesus. I don’t even want to link to it. I’ve never been so angry at a news story since I read Kim Kardashian was marrying Kris Humphreys. No, I’m not sure that’s how you spell his name and I won’t waste my time looking it up. Anyway, I just quickly want to make a point before the TSA Agent snaps on his plastic gloves and takes me to the Calgary International Airport Champagne Room for a…deeper inspection.
- Sorry people, but Barack Obama might be just as evil and corrupt as George W. Bush. Now that he’s offered (and seemingly insistent) on cutting Social Security and Medicare, it’s getting more difficult to ignore all his broken campaign promises. Not only did he promise to withdraw all troops from Iraq by 2009 and lie, he began another “campaign” (read: illegal aggression on a foreign country) in Libya, continued the Predator drone attacks on Pakistan (killing an estimated 900 people last year) and, to top it off, has added Somalia to his list of things to bomb. It seems eloquence and friendliness to reporters goes a long way to shaping public opinion – which is possibly why Obama is so dangerous. He has the media – and as an extension – a Liberal subculture in his back pocket. This is a liberal subculture, mind you, that Obama doesn’t belong to and will do nothing to champion their agendas. But while Bush stammered and squinted at a Teleprompter he couldn’t read, Obama – one of the world’s greatest orators – is funny, engaging and friendly to the media. It makes all his bullshit that much easier to swallow.
