The President of The United States of America was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace today.
“By awarding you its most prestigious prize, the Committee is rewarding your determined commitment to human rights, justice and spreading peace across the world, in accordance with the will of its founder Alfred Nobel. It also does justice to your vision of tolerance and dialogue between States, cultures and civilizations. Finally, it sets the seal on America’s return to the heart of all the world’s peoples.” -Nicolas Sarkozy
Obama himself admitted to not being certain he deserved the honor and saw it as less of a tribute than a call to action. I can’t help but admire his lack of pretentiousness. He is serious and sincere and if they would just let him do what we elected him to do. What he came to do. It is so painful to watch, overt cockblocking every time he puts a foot forward. Nasty, senseless, painfully obvious obstruction for the sake thereof instead of reason or logic or common fucking sense.
It is clear to me that the Nobel committee intended to send the message that it liked the talk, but eagerly anticipated and encouraged the walk. I’m confident that about sums it up. There is no mystery here. They realize the potential power for good America holds in her fists and understand that we now have a leader of the caliber, intellect and compassion to loosen those fists into hands for helping and shaping and lifting.
Seems as though we’re always at a crossroads, a critical juncture. This President presides over the most persistently precarious positions and potential shifts of paradigm of any President in my lifetime at least. The ill conceived placement of a single toe, and we stare nuclear holocaust, collapse of the world economy, famine and pestilence in a face so proximate, it’s collective exhale will wither the young, the infirm and most of the worlds crops.
Understand we flirt with disaster by the hour.
Most Hostess and Armour products will endure. I think I’ll bury some to be safe. Oh, and some Ramen. There’s always a silver lining. Something to snack on while we rot will mitigate the circumstances somewhat. I’m hoping for blankets and comics until we liquify or sublimate to gaseousness.
Our man literally has the weight of the world on his shoulders. He bears it, along with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, with grace, dignity and humility. What’s in play here is not just mutually assured destruction, but racism and bigotry and people with rotting teeth because they don’t eat their vegetables or brush their teeth or read the goddamn paper.
I am proud. I am firmly of the belief that what stands between Obama, the American people and true, legitimate meaningful progress towards peace, justice and equity, is fear, ignorance, racism and stupidity so bold and heedless as to be unable to define itself, it’s reasons or it’s intentions. These people are fucking nuts.
Our President received the Nobel Prize for Peace today. The world roots for us and him. After the eight years long nightmare we visited on the world by either endorsing or acquiescing to the Dick-in-Bush antipathy and odium for the rest of the globe, the civilized nations are looking to us and hoping, praying, that we will turn the destructive behemoth around.
That’s what this means. This is what they’re asking us to do. It’s why they did it. Don’t be stupid.
It was no phantasm. It was real and horrible and what it wrought will take decades to repair. So western civilization is asking, beseeching us, to get back in the game of righting things as opposed to ignoring or tearing them apart. We are all human. Humanity is both our lowest and highest common denominator. Above and beyond country, ethnicity, religious provocation or social and ethical imperatives, we are all the same species. We are humans. We are people. All of us bleed, most of us love.
Still, people don’t or refuse to understand the import of such a momentous occurrence.
“It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights.’’ -RNC chair Michael Steele
Like who fuckhead? Rush “The Human Shitsmear” Limbaugh? Michele Bachmann? Ann Coulter? Hannity? John Boehner? Joe Wilson? Cornyn? Cheney? Rove? Hatch? Rumsfeld? Condi Rice? Palin?
Oh, the list is sooooo much longer. More than a gutter, more than a ditch. A landfill littered with losers just like you. Guilty and stupid.
Not exactly a roster of live and let live, compassion or peace, love and understanding. Fuck you Michael Steele you ignorant, sycophantic, Uncle Tom piece of shit. What we have here is a very good day for America and whomever pulls your strings is more sad and pathetic than even you. You suck as a human being and a puppet. How do you and yours sleep?

The talking heads were hard at it yesterday, pontificating on how Obama has yet to accomplish anything. This pisses me off for a number of reasons. Dumbya accomplished nothing good for the average middle class American in his entire eight years. All he did was consistently kick the feet out from under them. With the palm of his hand, he held skulls against any given surface and visited violent intercourse upon them dispassionately, save some boyish cowboy glee, from behind.
Yup, in the ass. Clearing brush and evildoers. Smokin’ em out. Fucking retard.
He smirked and smiled all Alfred E. Newman, chuckled and believed his retardedness to be anointed, appointed and ‘special’, to carry out such an awful and dastardly thing. God made him do it, as opposed to Cheney and the PNACs I guess.
I beg to differ.
The quintessential violent and clueless bully who turns out not to be so bad when it’s over. Except he’s dumb as a stick.
Oh, and President. Elected twice and all. By us and and all. Without prejudice and presence of mind and all. I mean President of the US of A. Dumb as a goddamn branch floating in a polluted river.
The clusterfuck that Obama inherited is arguably the worst any president has ever walked into. The blind partisan obstruction by Republicans is easily the most egregious in our history.
A wounded cur, sits and drools increasingly intrepid and malignant. Snarling and snotty and shrinking.
Still, she keeps barking and smacking. Protesting everything that moves. She just can’t stand anything that moves. Anything that moves. Oh, she can’t tolerate it. Kill it, she thinks, the vicious bitch canine trained to hate toddlers and grandmas and the disabled.
You know, not since FDR has any president walked into such a shitstorm.
Bear with me as this is entirely different, from FDR, or any other presidency ever. Waaay different.
Needless to say, FDR strode bravely into the worst of modern times. Still, he enjoyed near total congressional cooperation. At least to begin with. All on the same page, all willing to advance what needed to be done. Patriotism over partisanship. Few questions asked. Get this shit done. It was bad and in need of immediate repair. What follows is the golden phrase.
They worked together for the benefit of us all.
Our man faces the extreme opposite while enduring the same environment and circumstances. No cooperation. A stark and ugly deficit of good will. Twice as hard and he’s black. So six times as hard. This man is hoping for eight years and despite my lack of religion, God love him, his family and all of their souls. Godspeed, good luck and pancakes with peanut butter and syrup for each of their souls.
I say to you, you fucking go. You charge ahead and do as much damage and make as much difference as you can. Bring it. Show us your courage and we will fly your flag. I care less that you are our first black President than I do that you are MY first inspirational one. You speak to me and to we and it really could be you and me together. You may stumble, but as long as you get up, we will will be behind you. At your back. Wanting and hoping for the the same things.
Bring it and we will stay. I will. I will, you are stuck with me.
Fury, hatred and racism have once again become the dubious hallmark of the far right Christian wingnuts and an alarmingly malignant component of the generic conservatives and workaday GOP. The likes of Limbaugh and Hannity are so emboldened they simply lie these days. By what? Where does the courage come from? Why? Where do these fucks get off?
The public option has not the support of the majority they screech, it’s a government take over they wail. I watched Cornyn puke it up yesterday morning. He was lying. They lie. Over and over, again and again, on national television or whatever venue they happen to ass warm a seat in. The money for their re-election is a greasy pizza with shitty crust but plenty of cash cooked and delivered by the folks who own and control over 16 percent of our entire GDP.
Let me tell you something. Americans are goddamn dumb. Gullible.
You losers who eat this shit should be ashamed. Show up at the 7-11 after dark for your beef jerky and canned meat. Slim Jims and greasy food for dipshits and protein starved mouthbreathers. Watch your Springer and listen to your Hannity while you drive around in your ridiculous trucks feeling your genitalia are somehow more special than they should be.
Over two thirds of adult Americans want and wish for a public option. I don’t believe a president has ever been elected with as vastly voluminous a majority as the one in favor of a simple public option right now and today. It’s what we want. It’s so simple. But this is your government at work and it’s disgusting. One of the biggest businesses in the history of man. The precise and exact opposite is the truth and they know it as well as I and as well you should if you can afford to pay any attention at all. Without shame or conscience they just throw tires on the fire, so everyone can see the thick toxic smoke. Lie and lie, because that’s what they’re paid to perpetuate. No different than your bought and paid for Congresspersons and Senators.
If we do not get this, it will not be ok.
I’m really not holding my breath because the Democrats have been nothing but a lesson in how to suck so far without regard to future endeavors at all. Oh well. I’m a little drunk. Yer mama.

“Joe The Plumber…you can quote me…..is a dumbass. He should stick to plumbing.” -Meghan McCain
Nevermind his name’s not Joe and he’s not a plumber.
Sarah palin has the highest favorability rating of anyone in the GOP and she remains the parties most effective fund raiser.
That’s just sick. Disturbing. Portentous.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Sessions, Cornyn and Grassley step on their dicks in the Sotomayor hearings. They focus on her speeches as opposed to, and in obvious ignorance of, her seventeen years as a sharp and capable centrist jurist. Dogs and ponies. They can’t come up with a damn thing. Didn’y lay a glove on her. Pat Buchanan and Rachel Maddow collided over her on MSNBC earlier today. Rachel rocked by telling Uncle Pat he was “dating himself”. Summed up the disconnect between asstards like Buchanan and well, the rest of us.
That guy doesn’t lose many fights. She kicked his ass.
I’ve written about this a lot but I’m not tired of it yet. The Republican party is one hot mess. Tying their own shoes and that’s a bad thing. An implosion that keeps on giving. Three sex scandals in as many weeks, all three by prominent moralizing Republicans, who happen to live on or in (?), C Street and happen to call themselves a Christian Mafia. I believe all three have waxed hypocritical about other politicians who’ve been caught engaged in acts of untoward. They hollered self righteously for resignations, and now refuse to resign.
All this in a venue the IRS has been led to believe is a church. A goddamn church. Some media began calling it a frat house today. That works. The fraternity is the Christian Mafia. Fuck me.
Spying and torture and assassinations, oh my. Now I hear they used insects, fire ants even during interrogations. Another wingtip slams the marble everyday. Turns out, Republicans really are idiots. Fucking arrogant, willfully ignorant, lazy morons. They do nothing but posture and make insipid pronouncements awkwardly disguised as rational disagreement.
The hangover is getting to be a bit much. I knew it would be a long one but it’s becoming insufferable.
You can’t write this shit.
When I hear about this kinda buffoonery, I can’t help but wonder just how much of this ‘berg is above water?
It’s like Republicans only drink a certain kind of water and the Democrats just figured out how to infiltrate the supply. It has become the perfect storm.
Or maybe, within the most cosmic of ironies, evolution is biting them in the ass. A burst of honest, progressive and still empirical thought manifests as their own species threatening comet. Or maybe ice age.
Whatever it is, a hard winter is upon the Grand Old Party.
