oh these people….

Jack and Jill: In Iowa, there’s a social conservative pledge called “The Marriage Vow – A Declaration of Dependence upon Marriage and Family” that is anti-abortion, anti-same sex marriage, anti-divorce etc etc that GOP candidates are being urged to sign. (It includes:)

Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born after the election of the USA’s first African-American President.

Given that families were broken up regularly for sales during slavery and that rape by masters was pretty common, this could not be more offensive … When will Republicans inquire with actual Black people whether or not we’re ok with invoking slavery to score cheap political points? It has to stop….

Michele Bachmann (here) and Rick Santorum (here) have signed the ‘pledge’

birthers & their photoshopping skills….

Media Matters: Jack Cashill, author of the charmingly insane book Deconstructing Obama, claims to have unearthed yet another shocking bombshell about Barack Obama’s past. According to Cashill’s WorldNetDaily column this morning, this photo of young Barack Obama and his grandparents in New York is a forgery into which Obama has been photoshopped:

Cashill writes: “The bench is real. The grandparents are real. The wall behind them is real. Barack Obama is not. He has been conspicuously photoshopped in. Who did this and why remains as much a mystery as Obama’s extended stay in New York.” He embeds a YouTube video that claims to have uncovered the “real” photo, seen below, in which Obama is nowhere to be seen:

Actually, to say Obama is “nowhere to be seen” isn’t quite accurate, given that the young future president’s right knee is still somehow visible in the “real” photo:

So yeah: Jack Cashill is a clownish buffoon. Be sure to tell that to the hosts of Fox & Friends the next time they have him on national television. Also, drop a line to Andrew Breitbart, who is quite enamored of Cashill’s “convincing work.”

Yep, that’s the new Huffy Post recruit.

This is pure gold ‘LOL’, thank you!

Loved this:

Alex Pareene (Salon): So, yes, this is actually just a picture of Barack Obama’s grandparents hanging out in New York, where they did not live and where Obama was attending college, without their grandson, who was I guess secretly in Pakistan, at the time. I think that’s what has been definitively proven here. Obama was being a Marxist Muslim in Pakistan.

But unmentioned by Cashill is the single most insidious part of this deception: While Barack Obama is nowhere to be found in the unretouched version of this photo, his knee is still in between in grandparents.

What was Barack Obama’s knee doing in New York, while the rest of him was in Pakistan, and Indonesia? Dealing drugs? Why are mainstream journalists afraid to ask tough questions about the president’s detachable knee? The people have a right to know!

job creation!

“Excuse me, Vice President. Can you tell some of the construction workers to build a Lego shop here?”
– Jack Isakson to Joe Biden at the ceremonial swearing-in for his grandfather Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.).

VP: “I’ll tell you what, I’ll work with grandpop to see if we can get that done. We need jobs, Jack. The kid’s thinking! He wants to build a LEGO shop here!”

Speaking of Lego …..

Here’s a pic from Flickr showing then Senator Obama kicking John McCain’s ass during the Presidential election. Very nice. But the President’s hair? It looks like a cat sleeping on his head.

And here’s the inauguration at LEGOLAND California:

And, eh, here’s the President and First Lady during the swearing-in. Am I being harsh, or could there have been a touch more detail in the faces?

big dawg delivers….again

Great speech by President Clinton in Kentucky today, at a rally for Jack Conway




Kentucky.com: Republicans try to portray Democrats as the party of big government spending while claiming to be the party of restraint, Clinton said.

“First of all, they never worry about the deficit except when there’s a Democrat in the White House,” Clinton said during his 29-minute speech.

He said the country enjoyed budget surpluses during his eight years in office, but when George W. Bush became president “they repealed arithmetic.”

He said President Bush left President Barack Obama with a $1.2 trillion annual deficit but now Republicans want to talk about balancing the budget. “Give me a break here,” he said.

Dude!

In 1980, when Obama was a freshman at Occidental College in Los Angeles, he was approached by an aspiring photographer named Lisa Jack, who asked him if he would be willing to pose for some black and white photographs that she could use in her portfolio.
