What Is It About Matt Lewis That Attracts Teh Stupid?
Is it a subdural hematoma? Is it his boyish enthusiasm for oddly named sandwiches? Is it an odor?
Well, whatever it is, Matt’s not letting the miasma of idiocy that surrounds him at all times like a Grand Banks fog deter him from asking the questions that were even too stupid for Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos:
In the 1990s, it was often noted that a great many of Bill Clinton’s friends were either dead or in jail.
Yeah, the same thing was often noted in the 1980s about Nelson Mandela’s friends. That joke never gets old…
Similarly, Barack Obama seems to curry favor with some very questionable characters … Granted, in some cases Obama disavows them (he sort of did this with Rev. Wright’s comments).
Yeah, he kinda gave a speech or somethin’.
In other cases, he has not sought their endorsement (such as anti-semite Louis Farrakhan) –
…but they’re both black, so they gotta know each other.
…but ultimately, people have to wonder what it is about Obama that attracts the support of Hamas, Communists, and domestic terrorists to him ….
That’s a pretty diverse group of interests, so I’m going to guess that Obama is either a uniter, not a divider, or maybe it’s his Hai Karate.
This subject came up in last night’s debate when a question was asked about Bill Akers. Obama served on a board for an anti-poverty group with Bill Akers of the Weather Underground.
To be fair, Obama misheard the introductions and thought he was meeting Angus MacLise of the Velvet Underground.
But of course, he’s a changed man, right? Wrong: In 2001, he told the New York Times, “I don’t regret the bombings.” Last night, Obama responded to questions about this by saying,
This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.
… But, of course, they don’t really know each other that, well, right? Well, last February Obama’s Chief StrategistDavid Axelrod told Politico’s Ben Smith this:
“Bill Ayers lives in his neighborhood. Their kids attend the same school … They’re certainly friendly, they know each other, as anyone whose kids go to school together.” (Ben Smith, “Ax On Ayers,” The Politico’s “Ben Smith” Blog,www.politico.com, 2/26/08)
Well, I was going to support Obama, before Matt provided this incontrovertible evidence of the Senator’s chicanery: Obama says that Bill Akers lives in his neighborhood and he knows him, and Obama’s own Chief Strategist stabs him in the back by confirming his account! But for some reason, Obama doesn’t see fit to mention that their kids go to school together, and as everyone knows, PTA meetings are hotbeds of violent treason. I remember when I was in Junior High, my mom finally quit the Booster Club in disgust because she wanted to hold a raffle to raise money to buy new marching band uniforms, while all the other mothers only wanted to bomb the Phone Company and levitate the Pentagon.
Really? There’s an African-American with a serious chance of being elected to the Presidency of the United States, and Ortega considers that“revolutionary?” Hey, Mustache, you might wanna turn down the hyperbole.
But then, generations of TV pitchwomen said the same thing about laundry detergents with enzymes, and that stuff only made thingswhiter.
We don’t mind–actually we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will (win) the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle, and he has a vision to change America to make it in a position to lead the world community but not with domination and arrogance…”
… So why do all these people like Obama? Is it that they think he’s amenable to their agenda? Or do they just see him as “green” and inexperienced and malleable?
The question is: Do Americans want someone who — at best– is obviously viewed as so naive and easily influenced running the show, really?
Well, I’ve been following all the news about last night’s Dem debate, as well as the Pope’s visit.
Oh yeah, I also spoke to a group of journalists/politicians from Sweden. That was pretty cool. Following that, I had lunch with Jim “The Show” Eltringham at Lawson’s deli. I had the sandwich called the “Young Republican” (chicken salad and bacon. yum).
I had a very good blog afternoon over at Townhall. Posted like 5 good posts. This gives me a feeling of accomplishment. One of the good things about blogging is that office work often lacks immediate rewards. Unlike someone who “builds” something (a chair, a house, etc.), a lot of time, you can work in an office for weeks without having anything to really “show” for it. But if you post a blog — well that’s one thing you did. (At least, that’s what I tell myself).
