Hey Dudette, I finally got the ‘Sing’ job done!
Hello TODville. Am I number 1?
Well AMK, I am not as new as I look. I have retweeted many of your tweets and I am reading here long enough to know that you sleep in the day EST. Am I right? Nevertheless, being top of the leaderboard does warrant a genteel welcome, so Thank you very much
drats. I blame you-know-who for my mistake.
Hey enekra – haven’t seen you around before! welcome!
Congrats on first, enekra!!!
Awesome indeed! Congratulations on your FELICITOUS FIRST, enekra! Well done!!
Hi, thanks for your request for the montage. It’s great, thanks to Chips! <3
Knew she’d come up with something brilliant! The woman is amazing!
more from TPM on Charlie Crist switching to Dems.
Charlie registers as Dem at White House Christmas party From the Tampa Bay Times …
He did so during a Christmas reception at the White House, where President Obama greeted the news with a fist bump for the man who had a higher profile campaigning for Obama’s reelection this year than any Florida Democrat.
from prev thread:
Did Charlie Crist really JUST announce he’s switching to Dem party on twitter? Or did I miss an announcement? I’ve had a lot going on this week, but I woulda remembered this I think.
yep he announced via twitter
Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @BarackObama! http://t.co/lQVn7DKf— Charlie Crist (@charliecristfl) December 08, 2012
theres’s a pic with his paperwork I guess
Four firsts. Let’s see if the blog tyrant is up to the task.
cool cat with cool hat.
Cats are going to kill humans someday and they will be perfectly justified.
Not if my sweet doggy has anything to say about it.
Amen! Dogs RULE!!!!!
The Fantastic Four
Thanks Chips. Very honored. Couldn’t get a better pick. Of course, in this one I am Joe the Biden.
They all look so happy!
Repost. Why not?

AMK can you explain this cartoon to me, please?
Don’t you have a dog that roots around the garbage can (despite your feeding it all the goodies) and brings back into your home, rather proudly, a stinking piece of meat ?
helps a bit
we had a cat like that, bless her soul. All the expensive catfood shite and she’ll go out and come back with a dead mouse, squirrel or a poor bird and drop it at our feet expecting a pat in the back. She used the scare the shit out of my gentle joe, a really big great dane, rest his soul.
amk, that is a LOVE offering from your cat.
Yep! The best is yet to come, so I’m going to sleep so that I can be rested enough to appreciate it. Thank you, Ms Chips.
Christ, is an odd one. I wish the ppl of FL would give him another chance… somewhere. Senator? Governor?
Hey Chips, the tweet about Ann Romney’s inaugural ball gown….was that a real tweet from Mark Knoller? If so…then OMFG….what a rightwing nut.
Since I’m not on twitter…..what was said about Ann and the inaugural ball gown? That is too intriguing not to follow up on…..??? genuine info or some snark?????
It’s on the video…although I don’t think he actually tweeted that, but he may have been thinking, hoping and praying about Ann’s inaugural gown!
So she had her gown picked out?? Hubris.
I think Chips parodied Knoller with this tweet – like she does with GOPolitico But I could be wrong!
One of the best videos ever Chips. One month later and the win is still so powerful.
Wow, I saw this video on the Democratic Underground and was so proud of TOD and very moved! What an awesome video – great song as well. Never heard of Travis before. Always good to discover good music – especially these days. Thanks bunches!
You LIKE me, you REALLY LIKE ME!!!!
Thank you so much Chips! I LOOOOOOOVE THIS SONG! The video is absolutely dazzling! If I may say so, it surpasses its previous incarnation by leaps and bounds! GENIUS!!! Brava!!!!
Ditttooooooooooooo …i love this song…and this video is simply awesome!
That was fantastic. Had a grin on my face the whole video. Excellent work Chips.
So much to celebrate tonight — Charlie Crist come over from the Dark Side, oh yeh and there’s this:

Mclaren (a nutso firebagger at BJ) calling a basketball game…
Chalmers takes the ball upcourt – that’s incredibly stupid, he’s not a scorer
He passes to Wade – Basketball 101: You can’t score if you don’t put the ball in the hoop, all this passing bullshit is pure cowardice.
Wade in traffic, passes back out to Haslem – this is amateur hour, the hoop is that way morons!! All the money these guys get and they are too afraid to do the job
Back to Wade -he’s back out to the line and meanwhile that fool James is running around without the ball – you need the ball to score idiot.
Wade to James, dunk. Finally they listened to us.
Bill Clinton: US ambassador to Ireland? Rumors catch fire.
Bill Clinton loves Ireland, and Ireland loves him, but fresh Beltway rumors are suggesting that he might even like to be the US ambassador to the Emerald Isle. Is Dublin big enough for Bill?
Alright, amk, this one’s for you!
A husband and wife are shopping in their local supermarket.
The husband picks up a case of Budweiser and puts it in their cart.
“What do you think you’re doing?” asks the wife.
“They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans” he replies.
“Put them back, we can’t afford them” demands the wife, and so they carry on shopping.
A few aisles further on along the woman picks up a $20 jar of face cream and puts it in the basket.
“What do you think you’re doing?” asks the husband.
“It’s my face cream. It makes me look beautiful,” replies the wife.
Her husband retorts: “So does 24 cans of Budweiser and it’s half the price.”
That’s him on Aisle 5 – he never knew what hit him…
LOL!! I needed that

ooooooooooh Chipsticks!! The video is wonderful. Especially the last scene. Love it!
Yes, I replayed that last scene about 20 times…
Sing! Four More Years!: youtu.be/QYxDKNmhThc Thank you America! @BarackObama @WhiteHouse #FORWARD via @TheObamaDiary— Dudette (@Dudette9t9) December 08, 2012
chips, this is just beautiful. thanks so much, for all you do. truly.
The video is excellent. I saw it first a little while ago on Twitter. Ms. Chips you rock!!!
Charlie crist joined the dems! Kinda happy for some reason.
I don’t mean to be a downer, but I’m holding my judgement on Crist. He refused to agree to caucus with Democrats during his Senate run, even though Democrats sided with him instead of an actual Democrat, Meek. He hasn’t expressed any Democratic views that are different from the blue dogs obstructing progress. And his move seems very calculating to me. Many of the same Democrats who were ready to crown Chris Christie the presumptive nominee for 2016 after he said a few flattering words over Superstorm Sandy are now feeling burned when he’s letting his true colors shine through. Many of the same people now fawning over Crist will be howling about his blue dog votes in a year or so… These Republicans – they don’t change their stripes that easily.
theo, you can hold it. I live here. The things that make Christ a better shot for Senate in 2016…he vowed to keep drilling off of our coast. He is still a small tax guy and this state fell apart before the rest of the country in 2007. It was the overblown housing market. Homes here sell for over 1 million because of the beach. The same home would sell for $100,000 anywhere else.
My thoughts against him are his views on LGTB issues. He is still a science guy though.
When is comes to candidates there are no such thing as purity…i think this what gets the TP/Repubs and PL in trouble…there is no room for compromise…
the Repubs may have lost the race but they are very much alive…they will regroup to fight again…for us on the other side we must not rest on our victories…we must build allies where we can…
here in PA because of redistricting…13 out of 18 Congressional seats are Rs…yet Pa went strong for the President..
In 2010…there was a Republican Takeover…they control the state house..
.the attempt at voter suppression was thwarted but not defeated…the primaries are just 5 mos away…and now the same forces that brought us the Voter Suppression Law want to change how electoral votes are awarded…if that had been place…the President could have won the popular vote but lost the state….
The Repubs cannot win…so they cheat…and steal…our votes…our voices.
we have to find a way to forge new alliances to make sure that votes matter…our voices are heard…
Thanks for the background – I’ll try to be optimistic. The good thing is – any movement from the right towards reason is a good thing!
Thank you, dear Chips!
Dear @BarackObama @MichelleObama Chips & TOD have ALWAYS been with YOU bit.ly/YMmyq0 & what Sasha did will never be forgotten. TY!— Bobfr (@Our4thEstate) December 08, 2012
Yes We Did
Thank you, friend
Beautifully said Bobfr – thank U!
YES WE DID!!!!!!
Loved Sasha patting PBO on the back.
I love that part as well; it shows how aware and mature she has become. Her action also shows the closeness, the unity of the family as well as the quality of their father-daughter relationship. PBO is just the kind of father that girls need to help them to grow into confident women.
Can you imagine having such magnificent parents as PBO and FLOTUS?! OMG!
Great observation CEB. So true!
She also made note to her dad to turn around and acknowledge the people behind them. I read her lips. So thoughtful, just like her parents. I love this video—the music and the content. Just beautiful. Thank you Chips.
I LOVE this site Thank You So Much for existing i Hope and Pray that you all will be around for a long.long time. Thank You Again!!
Thanks to Chips, we will, roh!!! So glad you are with us!!
Yes We Can
Oh Chipsticks – that video is MAGNIFICENT!
Great post on Norbrook’s blog:
Love this video; thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I think I like the headline from India the best: Obama reelected; planet relieved! I have to say I have felt such a strong sense of inner peace for the last month. Also helps that in MN we defeated two hateful constitutional amendment proposals….renews your faith in voters! Yes we can, yes we did and yes we will!
I also LOVE the part where Malia is showing Sasha some love. I’d never seen that part before. So so so incredibly SWEET.
Governor Charlie Crist of Florida, sounds a hell of alot better than Governor Rick Scott. And how about Senator Ashley Judd of Kentucky. I don’t know if either will come true, but we sure can dream can’t we. That Mitch “Filibuster” McConnell is a disgrace also.
Just beautiful, Chips. Thank you.
This video is now at the top of of my list of all time favorite TOD video gems; I will be watching it over and over. Unfortunately, I am technologically challenged and I have no teenagers in my home who can show me how to download this keeper to my computer. Will someone tell me, in simple terms, how to do this? Thanks so much. I will check back later in the day when more people are up. Off to enjoy this beautiful again and again.
Where are my manners, geesh! Chips you have outdone yourself (which is an almost impossible feat). I am still so thankful, inspired, vindicated, and so much more that I can hardly express as a result of PBO’s/our victory. Sometimes I am still overwhelmed with how we prevailed with so much against us (big money, voter suppression, the collaboration of the media with the repiubs. etc). This video somehow, just fills me up. Thanks also to Dudette for her inspiration.

Good Morning everyone – and WHAT A GREAT VIDEO CHIPS! So glad I caught it this morning, love it!!!
Suspect in attack which killed US ambassador to Libya is arrested in Egypt, intelligence sources say – @NBCNews nbcnews.to/YNoTkJ— Breaking News (@BreakingNews) December 08, 2012
The Media will bury this, now the Republucans are really prolong up chemical weapons in Syria.
Just who are they going to fire these chemical weapons at?
They are mobs of People, sporadically attacking Assads forces, Gorilla Warfare.
Does Assad fire at it’s own People to kill the bad Guys?
This is very complicated, but as long as the MSM takes it’s talking points from the Republucans, we get a war drum beat every time!
From Assads POV they ate bad guys, some are revolting against Assad and some may be Militant extremists!
HelloooooTODville! It’s Saturday morning, I’m awake, and apart from having 1 or 2 specific things on the agenda the day is mine! I can actually run around and see what all you have been up to without keeping my eye on the clock. Sweet!
Happy Saturday, one and all, and to all a good December day!
Shout out to CJ, ChristiMtl and Fred! You are all in my thoughts. So is Proud of O whom I haven’t seen in a while, probably because I’ve been more out than in as I dance in and out.
/slaps side of head/ Oh! Welcome to an active life in TODville, Enekra! As you debut at the top of the leaderboard, be aware that’s one of the signs of major TOD addiction, and to date no one has shared the remedy for when you get hooked. Welcome to an active dialogue in the favourite county of Pres O – TOD!
Good Morning VC. Thanks for reminding us about our friends who are dealing with life’s trials and tribulations who need a little extra love and support. Keeping them in my thoughts and prayers. Love you guys!
Hi, Dudette, how are you today? I love this video of Hold On. Tried to find it on YouTube, but couldn’t. Do you have a link? I’d really appreciate it. The ones I found weren’t as good. This is such a great sight, and I’m just scratching the surface. Love the music and photos.
did I miss something about Christi? VC, is she alright?
Yes, Christi’s fine as far as I know, Sheri. I just haven’t seen her on line in a while, and in case she is busy and just lurking I wanted her to know out of sight does not mean out of mind.
Enjoy your Saturday, you!
oh thank you vc, I too have missed her… so in case she is lurking: Hello Christi ~ Happy Holidays to you
That was an excellent video. Two things:
1. That pic of Nate Silver smelling flowers – huh? LOL!!
2. Was that a real tweet from Mark Knoller about Ann Romney’s dress? I had to rewind to make sure if wasn’t Snark Knoller.
I had to do a double take on that to about Ann Romney’s dress. It might not be true, but let’s remember these are the folks who thought it was there turn, they were entitled to the WH, remember Mitt was so sure he was going to win that he didn’t write a speech if in case he lost, which he did.
I am looking forward to what FLOTUS will be wearing.
I Cannot Wait!!!
It wasn’t a real tweet GB, just me being, well, snarky!!
Very clever Chips!

Luis Guittierez says the President is MIA on Immigration reform.
For Christ sakes, the President is 1. 1/2 months away from being sworn into a second term and Guittierez us freaking out already?
He is always freaking about something. That is why the MSM loves him.
From what I understand Gutierrez is not well-respected or liked in the broader Latino community. Like his counterparts Tavis and West, he’s another poser and media whore, and does not speak for the community that he claims to represent.
Luis Guittierez, I don’t care for him to much. I feel like when he what attention, he opens his big mouth. What does he think the President can wave a magic wand and poof, Immigration reform will be. How about giving the President time, there are other things which might be alittle more pressing right now, like keeping middle class taxes from going up.
FYI- did you know everybody was paying those taxes under Clinton, and the World did not end.
But, as you say, if he gets you all middle class tax cuts, the math days he will have to cut entitlements.
We can’t have normal entitlement spending and tax cuts and balance the books, not with a trillion dollar deficit annually.
Thanks for the info.
Thank you! Chips you are the best. What a great wake up video. I had to watch it three times. Giggles and tears the whole time. Thank you master artist, thank you. Back to watch it one more time.

Morning everyone. Lovely video Chips. This is a masterpiece.
I have been looking for Jimmy Fallon’s parody of James Taylor at the DNC. Every video I find says that it is private. Can anyone help me find one that I can play. There is one on this blog a little after the convention but I cannot seem to find it. Thank you in advance.
Hi Soca! I can’t find a youtube one that’ll embed here, but here’s a link:
