Funny stuff/

The Messiah, to counter the Joe the Plumber firestorm recently said that he had never met a plumber that made 250 thousand dollars.

Setting aside the fact “Joe” never said it, (he was looking at the possibility of owning his own business that would then make that much scratch, in other words obama lied!) Tommy the Plumber has a few choice words for the Messiah:

“I’ve made that,” said Tommy Kimmons, owner of Kimmons Plumbing. “I know a lot of other plumbers that have made more than that. We are already taxed to the death and you want to throw some more on us, especially in these economical times. People are going to be laying people off.”

As long as I’m making introductions, Messiah, meet Dave the Building Contractor.

Dave McCartney of McCartney Improvement Co. in Davenport, argued Obama’s tax policies would hurt small businesses like his.

McCartney said higher taxes on his profits cut back on the money he has to invest in new equipment and to expand his business or hire more people.

The company employs 13 full-time employees as well as additional sub-contractors.

“The economy’s already starting to slow, and we’re feeling it,” McCartney said.

McCartney also said a mandate that small businesses provide health care to their workers could cause him to trim his work force, a characterization of Obama’s health care plan that the campaign said was false.

The Obama campaign said Obama’s plan would not require small businesses to provide health care coverage to their workers.

As expected some nitwit in the Messiah’s campaign blew over anything directly related to what McCartney has to say and let lose with usual bilge of talking points we’ve heard a thousand times – times ten.

“Barack Obama understands the challenges facing hardworking Iowans like me,” Friedhof said. “As president, he will cut taxes for 95 percent of all workers and help small businesses succeed in this struggling economy. While John McCain wants to continue President Bush’s tax cuts for big corporations and their wealthy CEOs, Barack Obama will cut taxes for middle class families.”

Friedhof, you can take that crapola and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine, and Messiah talking points reside.

It appears as though the ObamaMessiah camp is looking to add some “substance” to the lie about Gov. Palin charging victims for police department use of rape kits.

Jonathon Martin of Politicico reports:

Barack Obama’s campaign earlier this month sought to find a rape victim to appear in a campaign commercial, according to an e-mail obtained by Politico.

Kiersten Steward, director of public policy at the Family Violence Prevention Fund, served as a conduit between the campaign and victims and women’s advocates.

“Obviously, this is a big ask and I haven’t seen a script but presumably it will be a brief ‘this is what happened to me, we need someone who will fight for women like me, these are the guys to do it,'” Steward wrote in a Sept. 15 e-mail. “Again, that’s just my assumption, given how these things
usually go.”

Steward, a former top aide to Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-N.Y.), said the Obama campaign would have a crew in Washington and was hoping to film that week.

She didn’t respond to a message.

The Obama campaign wouldn’t detail the strategy behind finding an individual to discuss such a sensitive topic but did suggest the ad may be aimed at underscoring their candidate’s support for abortion rights and ongoing effort to retain those women who backed Hillary Clinton in the primary.

“Choice is an important issue, and we’re going to continue talking about it in battleground states through the election,” said spokesman Bill Burton.

I guess the hacks at the wheel of the Messiah’s campaign haven’t read the email that thoroughly debunks the Palin myth.

Not that it matters much to these asswipes, but I do have one question for them: Why an Alaskan victim?

Shouldn’t any rape victims coerced asked to participate in this type ad carry more weight with the public if she was a resident in one of the battleground states?

The anti-Palin lunatics know no bounds – really. A bar owner in Chicago paints a nude picture of Sarah Palin using his daughter as the model.

The four-foot-tall oil painting depicts the current governor of Alaska standing atop a polar bear-skin rug in her living room, nude, except for a pair of red stiletto heels and her trademark eyeglasses. In the picture she leans on an automatic rifle while beaming a megawatt smile. Behind her, a window looks out onto a pristine Alaska landscape, complete with a moose that has just ambled into the frame.

“It’s been very successful,” Elliott said, “Generally what I do is sex, but I think I’m going to do a little more politics.”

“My daughter is a heck of a stand-in for Sarah Palin. She can even do the voice,” he said.

In the least shocking statement of the day, Elliott said he’s “pulling for Barack Obama in the election.”

Frankly “Mr.” Elliott, looking at the image of your daughter she’s at least 50% heavier than Palin in the weight department, that’s some stand-in. When asked what it was like posing nude before her father Grace “proudly informs” onlookers, “He changed my diapers,” she said with a shrug. “Think about it like that.”

You’re both a couple partisan lunatics, who would go bat-shit crazy if someone did the same to Rep. Pelosi, think about it like that!

A German toymaker has paid the ultimate tribute to presidential hopeful Barack Obama by immortalizing him in the form of a collector’s doll. But the maker of the mini-Obama admits that it was tricky to get the skin tone correct.

Obama DollExpert German dollmaker Marcel Offermann has garnered much media attention in the past with his dolls of famous people such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Pope Benedict XVI, the Dalai Lama and Lady Diana. Now he is paying tribute to the latest political figure to make history: Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

The Barack Obama doll is available in a limited edition of 999 and costs €139 ($216). The 36-centimeter (14-inch doll) sports a black suit, complete with a Stars-and-Stripes lapel pin, a white shirt and Obama’s trademark sky-blue tie. Offermann, who runs a doll hospital in the western German city of Neuss near Düsseldorf, explained that he chose the sky-blue tie because Obama wears it at 80 percent of his campaign appearances. “We originally wanted the doll to have rolled-up shirt sleeves but that wasn’t practical,” he told SPIEGEL ONLINE Tuesday.

However it was difficult to replicate the attention to detail given to the clothing when it came to the doll’s head. Offermann explained that he was forced to adapt an off-the-shelf black doll’s head for his tribute to Obama, which is his first attempt at making a black doll.

Offermann did, however, lighten the standard skin color of the doll’s head. “We tried to make it even lighter so that it would look more like Obama, but then it didn’t look so good,” he said. “So we said, let’s stick with this skin tone.”Related articles by Zemanta

In a way I shouldn’t give one wit what an asshatted writer like Gore Vidal thinks or writes about, he’s long been a thorn in the side of common sense and reason, but, sometimes you just gotta laugh at some of the shit this guy brings to the table.

It will take the the United States a century to recover from the damage wreaked by President George W Bush, US writer Gore Vidal said in an interview published today.

“The president behaved like a virtual criminal but we didn’t have the courage to sack him for fear of violating the American constitution,” Mr Vidal told the El Mundo newspaper.

The author, a trenchant critic of the US-led invasion of Iraq, said it would take the United States 100 years to repair the damage caused by Bush.

“We live in a dictatorship. We have a fascist government …which controls the media,” he said.

Got that? This nitwit makes the claim Bush hasn’t been impeached because to OH SOOOO far left loons in Congress didn’t want to violate the Constitution to do so.

So obviously he would support what amounts to a “fascist government” as long as it impeached the president. Fuck the Constitution in that case!

Would you be surprised to learn Gore thinks The ObamaMessiah is the smartest thing to come on the scene since, well, I don’t know when since. He just is, at least according to this asshat.

Not only that he thinks Sen. McCain’s Vietnam war history is a figment of the Senators imagination:

Asked what he thinks of McCain, Vidal calls him a “disaster,” then tells Deborah Solomon, “Who started this rumor that he was a war hero? Where does that come from, aside from himself? About his suffering in the prison war camp?”

Solomon replies: “Everyone knows he was a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.” To which Vidal responds: “That’s what he tells us.”

Does this guy, at the age of 82 still have a working brain cell?Related articles

“There’s no one I would rather be on a ticket with than John McCain,” the former Arkansas governor said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Asshat“Let me point out that all during the campaign, when I was his rival, not a running mate, there was no one who was more complimentary of him publicly and privately,” he said.

Your “Huckboom” went bust Huckabee if you think dragging out some spurious fact on how kind you were will get you anything more than a headline or two your as NUTS as those that thought you had a chance to be anything but county dog catcher.

“I want to make sure you know [McCain] was my number two choice. I still wanted to win, but if I couldn’t, John McCain, from always, was the guy I would’ve supported and have now supported,” Huckabee said.

And now we know how the former governor lost 100 pounds, by dumping loads of bullshit like this.

If being an empty suit, save for far too many prayers tucked into his pockets, isn’t enough to disqualify him from any office, his so called “benign joke” does: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him, and he dove for the floor.”

This asshole needs to sit down and STFU.

Irony MeterIs it the water in Washington D.C. or the water in Sen, Harkin’s home state of Iowa that causes extreme dementia that manafests itself when near a microphone and members of the media?

I can’t answer the question posed, but one thing I do know, Harkin is a full-on nutcase, and no better example of that is in this piece of trash spoken during a conference call with Iowa reporters.

Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, “and he has a hard time thinking beyond that,” Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday.

“I think he’s trapped in that,” Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. “Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous.”

Harkin said that “it’s one thing to have been drafted and served, but another thing when you come from generations of military people and that’s just how you’re steeped, how you’ve learned, how you’ve grown up.”

I’m really confused here, just what is it the Democrats believe about the military?

During the Bush/Kerry campaign military service was of great import to the extent Kerry used his mostly phony record as a brickbat tossed at the “AWOL” Bush.

Al Gore, um excuse me, The Goracle as he’s now known used the same tactic against Bush. Military service was important, and Gore served in Vietnam while Bush just flew around in airplanes in the National Guard stateside.

So yea, I’m confused as to just what these nimrods at the head of the Party of Democrats think.

Not only that, in Harkin’s case, he’s now claiming military service, at least those that volunteer and those with long family histories of service are somehow “dangerous.” MeThinks Harkin needs to shut his piehole considering he at one time felt military service so important to lie has ass off about his record.

Harkin made a 1984 boast that he had flown F-4s and F-8s on combat air patrols and photo-reconnaissance support missions in Vietnam. Or was was combat sorties over Cuba when he corrected himself when challenged by Senator Berry Goldwater.

Harkin finally acknowledged that he had never seen combat — that his military experience consisted of ferrying damaged aircraft for repairs from Japan to the Philippines.

Now THAT’s dangerous, not that he’d give one wit in the midst of a political campaign pitting two flawed Dem. candidates against one Rep. flawed candidate. And if he can get his “side” into the WH it’s all for the “better.”

As it is for Harkin to go to the mat in full support of the Ethanol scam for his states corn growers that has contributed to the current food shortage chronicled nearly daily in the world’s media. You want dangerous Harkin, that’s it, all for the sake of expensive subsidies for shifting corn from the food chain for a use as a fuel source.

Harkin, you’re a despicable asshat. And DANGEROUS to boot.
