21 23! Things You Can't Say About Obama: Riffing on Rush Limbaugh's Things You Can't Say About Obama


Just so we all know the new and improved rules. Memorize them. There will be a test.

UPDATE -- From May 19, Four months later to the day:

We can't talk about his patriotism.

We can't talk about his character.

"One of the things that we have to change in this country is the idea that people can't disagree without challenging each other's character and patriotism. .... Let me be clear: I will let no one question my love of this country." Obama tells McCain to lay off character


With Obama we started out, we couldn't talk about his big ears 'cause that made him nervous, and when he gets nervous he can't read the teleprompter.

We've gone from that to this: Not only can we not mention his ears...

We can't talk about his mother.

We can't talk about his father.

We can't talk about his grandmother unless he does, and brings her up as a "typical white person."

We can't talk about his wife,
(If by "my wife" he means the shrill, dumb, trash-talking, bitter American hating female race hustler he might live with on his days off.)

We can't talk about his preacher (If by "my preacher" he means that blustering, conniving, ranting, spuming America-hating American-made millionaire that's spent decades ripping off the poor and credulous people of his parish.)

We can't talk about his terrorist friends, (If by "terrorists" you mean any of the bomb-making, baby-killing, homicidal religious maniacs in Gaza, Lebanon, or Iran with 'legitimate grievances.'")

We can't talk about his voting record (If by "voting record" you mean a record so vacant of actual positions, actual yes or no votes, that it would be a discussion that takes less time to sum up than this sentence takes to read.)

We can't talk about his religion, (If by his religion you mean a set of "theological" assumptions and rhetorical crapola that only the dead would think had the least thing to do with Christianity, and a lot to do with personal enrichment and power.).

We can't talk about appeasement because only Obama knows how to talk to troublemakers which is why crime in his home-base around Chicago is now nonexistent.

We can't talk about color; we can't talk about lack of color, because in the realm of the rainbow there is no color, only the clear blinding light of his innate radiance.

We can't talk about race because, well, really Obama has no race except when he does, and that's not for us to say, only Obama, only late at night, and only when meeting with white people, black people, or muslims privately at which time, like the Grand Chameleon, Obama assumes whatever race best suits his needs.

We can't talk about the bombers and mobsters who are his friends. They might still hold a mortgage and they certainly hold his markers. Besides Bill Ayers feels he still "hasn't done enough" and may have a bomb with your home address on it.

We can't talk about his schooling because he's proved "too cool for school."

We can't talk about his name, "Hussein."

"What did you say?"

"I said, we can't say 'Hussai.....'" BLAM!

We can't talk about his lack of experience in everything except a cult of personality that fits in better with the Politburo than with the Congress.

We can't talk about his income. Or his wife's income. Or their joint income. Or what might be left over in their campaign coffers when his fleecing of the rich, the white, the young, and the guilty is complete.

We can't talk about his flag pin and sing, "First there is no mountain, than there is a mountain, then there...."

We can't talk about his ignorance of American geography because he's tired.

We can't talk about his ignorance of recent American history because he's weary.

Above all, we can't say that he is a liberal, but it is still okay to say, for at least 48 hours more, that he's like JFK with a tan and stick-out ears. (Strike that last thing about the ears because, remember....)

It started out we just couldn't talk about his ears.

Now we can't say anything about him.

So just shut up.

[Started by Rush Limbaugh's Things You Can't Say About Obama and just piling it on. Have a go. Any number can play.]

Can't talk about how in July 2004 he said of the war, “There’s not that much difference between my position and George Bush’s position,” or that in November 2004 he told Charlie Rose, “Once we go in, then we’re committed.... [O]nce the decision was made, then we’ve got to do everything we can to stabilize the country, to make it successful, because we’ll have too much at stake in the Middle East. And that’s the position that I continue to take." (Source.)

On the other hand, You may ask Commissar Obama for permission to eat another peanut butter sandwich. Or for permission to change your thermostat. Or send to know what Michelle is smokin' or..or..

-We can't talk about Obama's patriotism because wearing a flag lapel-pin or holding his hand over his heart during the anthem doesn't actually portray his personal level of said patriotism.

Uhh..Senator? What is that in your lapel?

-We can't talk about his deep understanding of the common working-class guy even though "arugula" isn't a common term in most households.

-We can't talk about his use of Christian symbology in his campaign ads because only superstitious nutheads like Dubya believe in God.

-We can't talk about his two million dollar house or four million dollar earnings last year because the GOP is the party of the rich.

-We can't talk about his disdain for rural folks because Bush's economic failures are what led those people to bitterly embrace guns and religion.

-We can't talk about his plan to send U.S. troops into Pakistan; its the righty NeoCons who start wars.

Uff Da, my fingers are sore from typing and there is still so much to add.

Michelle ain't smokin' anything, else she'd be in a better mood.

Is dangerous to criticize our leader, comrade.

"First there is no mountain, than there is a mountain, then there...."

I think that should be:

"First there is a mountain, than there is no mountain, then there is...."

Here in room 101, O'Brien just told me it was not enough to obey the O Man, I must also love him.

I'm feelin' all tingly.

Nope that was O'Brien.

Ouch, ouch, ouch.

Obama's trouble with his ears comes down to the fact that, unlike Dumbo, he has yet to achieve flight.

He wasn't supposed to say this of Obama, but he did.

Victor Davis Hanson predicts that " . . when this is all said and done, Barack Obama will prove the most racially–manipulative national figure we’ve seen in our lifetime."
