Gates made his reputation as an angry black man a la Al Sharpton; his novelty being he also has a doctorate. He has produced next to nothing as a scholar. Instead, he has devoted his time on Ivy League payrolls writing hip hop lyrics and shallow journalism. But he is pals with Obama, and that counts for a lot.Posted by Banjo at July 24, 2009 5:54 AM
WOAH! This is the highlight of my posting career to date - recognition on one of my favorites blogs. Thanks Gerald.Posted by Sirius at July 24, 2009 5:57 AM
Sirius, you could, of course, return the favor by getting his name right. Just a thought.
Bumper stickers? Come on, aren't we trying NOT to be the same sheepish bums that the liberals have been?Posted by Andy at July 24, 2009 8:32 AM
Geeze, Andi. Oops. Andy.
I was on my way to Kinkos.
Look. We've been the butt of mean-spirited snarkiness for so many years now, that a bumper sticker with that little bit of push-back is JUST the ticket.
I'm tired of turning all 4 cheeks.
Time to polish a place on my bumper.
Gerard - My apologies for the egregious error.
Andy - thanks for making me aware of it.
Best RegardsPosted by Sirius at July 24, 2009 9:20 AM
I hope that name correction didn't come off too harsh. It's a bit hard for me to be funny because, well, because I am not funny.
All four cheeks? You are too generous, Kathie. They only want the lower two.Posted by Andy at July 24, 2009 10:19 AM
Hey I could make that slogan into little stickers for Mossberg 500 stocks, okay?
And don't worry, Sirius, everybody gets the name wrong. And few even attempt the last name.Posted by vanderleun at July 24, 2009 10:34 AM
That'll work for me, G.
Sirius - look, I just go with first initials. It's how my stunted ghetto intellects masks my ineptitude behind a horribly thin veneer of creativity. Not to mention the wonderful familiarity it implies between me and the great Gerald VerdenfloonPosted by Andy at July 24, 2009 10:57 AM
Inspired by this post, I came up with this: http://exurbanleague.com/2009/07/24/we-love-you-now-go-away.aspxPosted by Exurbankevin at July 24, 2009 11:07 AM
I believe I'd like something a little more strongly worded to express my extreme antipathy for the One.
I'm near to hating that skinny bastard.Posted by Daphne at July 24, 2009 1:27 PM
" It's a bit hard for me to be funny because, well, because I am not funny."
That's funny ;-D
You're OK.Posted by Cathy at July 24, 2009 1:48 PM
Gerald Verdenfloon. Snorfle.
Who says your not funny Andi.
You guys have me laughing out loud.
I think I'll go w/ GV from now on which...will be easy for me since mine are FGV!
CheersPosted by Sirius at July 24, 2009 4:06 PM
Seems most are taking the first bumper sticker as a push back, but I think it's true. Even BEFORE the election, if you talked to people who supported Obama, many were against his policies...they still voted for him and still mostly support him, even though they still don't agree with most of his positions. It doesn't make sense, granted, but how do you explain sensibly this idiot being our president?Posted by eddie at July 24, 2009 6:54 PM
Congratulations on the Instalanche.Posted by Morgan K Freeberg at July 24, 2009 7:50 PM
So where can we get one?Posted by jim at July 24, 2009 8:32 PM
"if you talked to people who supported Obama, many were against his policies..." Much the same can be said about Regan. For good or ill, many people vote for the person rather than for policies.Posted by VoiceofReason at July 25, 2009 2:04 PM
No please - don't send him home. Aside from the murder rate, the South Side of Chicago has been so pleasant this summer. Can't we instead just send him to the Europe he loves so much? Please?Posted by dm60462 at August 10, 2009 9:27 AM
SOMETHING IS NOT ADDING UP OR ARE WE AS AMERICAN JUST LYING AND REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE AMERICA EVIL
Eight years of former Republican President G.W. Bush was disastrous! His irresponsible and naive and baseless decision making. Led to a unnecessary war in Iraq 4,400 and counting deaths for a war without merit! Then Bush attack Afghanistan the war that should had been after 9/11. The problem he had no plan and no direction for both wars. Then it was the prescription plan for senior citizen. A good thing a needed thing! BUT the two wars and the prescription plan were not paid for by Bush administration. Under Bush/ Cheney 22 million jobs lost many oversea never to return.
Facing a recession because of all the poor decision under the Bush administration. Bush propose and got a 350 billion dollar stimulus package. That did nothing and today is never discuss or explain. What did it do? Or where did the money go to? 9/11 happen on Bush / Cheney watch something that Bush was informed would happen. Seven months before 9/11 attack intelligent came to Bush and inform him that Bin Laden was planning a attack on America. Bush response was to say” I don't swat flies” . Three thousand Americans paid with their lives!
Now here's where things don't add up! The worse President in American history that did nothing to protect American from a attack he knew was coming. Is able to write books and never face a hearing on Capital Hill to explain his incompetents. Former Vice President Dick Cheney the worse Vice President and most dangerous of American history. Is able to write books and never answer for his incompetents and totally irresponsible decisions. Plus have the audacity to criticize President Obama who inherit historically the worse condition of America. The America media claim that American came together and flag went up around the country after the 9/11 attack! BULL!
2008 President Obama wins the election for President of the United State and immediately starts to slow down and correct Bush /Cheney mess! A 789 billion dollar stimulus package save the auto industry and a million jobs and gave the middle class a tax cut. Where is the coming together and flag raising for President Obama???? The private sector in sitting on a trillions of dollars in profit. The rich and super rich have gotten richer under President Obama. All the pundit on Fox News have double their income under President Obama. Yet they are the biggest critic of President Obama.
Rush Limbaugh who wish for the country and President Obama to fail. Sign a 105 million dollar contract more money then he ever made in his life under President Obama. Glenn Beck ( the nut) has made more money in he entire life under President Obama. Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly has done the same. Yet all these men from day one of the announcement that Senator Obama was running. Started a campaign of lies and total hatred of President Obama. A year into Obama Presidency criticism to why every is not fix was the talking point of these men! TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!!

Something is not adding up! Or are we as Americans just lying and refusing to acknowledging America evil. The country under President Obama has had 19 months of growth Bin Laden is dead along with 55 top terrorist; Libya President is on the run and Israel is given direction. The jobs plan in on the table that feature many Republican plans. Yet Republican are sticking to their plan of doing nothing for the country in order to defeat President Obama.
Again::::::SOMETHING IS NOT ADDING UP OR ARE WE AS AMERICAN JUST LYING AND REFUSING TO ACKNOWLEDGE AMERICA EVIL”””?????
