It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

I Ought To Slap You People!

So check this out.  This is part of a transcript from an episode of Charlie Rose that aired last Friday, that I lifted from Rush Limbaugh's website.

ROSE: I don't know what Barack Obama's worldview is.

BROKAW: No, I don't either.

ROSE: I don't know how he really sees where China is.

BROKAW: We don't know a lot about Barack Obama and the universe of his thinking about foreign policy.

ROSE: I don't really know. And do we know anything about the people who are advising him?

BROKAW: You know that's an interesting question.

ROSE: He is principally known through his autobiography and through very aspirational (sic) speeches, two of them.

BROKAW: I don't know what books he's read.

ROSE: What do we know about the heroes of Barack Obama?

BROKAW: There's a lot about him we don't know.


Now read that again.

And read it one more time.

These fuckers who, as part of the Pampers News Networks, have been genuflecting before Pampers for two years.  Now, four days before the election they are finally admitting THEY DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS!!!!

Are you fucking kidding me?  You assholes!!!  Now this fucker is headed to the White House.  It was your job to tell us who he is.  You spent so much time worshipping him that you didn't bother to ask any questions.  

We've been telling you douchebags who Obama is for two years.  This country is filled with the dumbest people in the world, starting with the morons in the press.

Now, look at this...also from the Charlie Rose show.  He was talking with Evan Thomas and  and Jon Meacham.

MEACHAM: He's very elusive, Obama, which is fascinating for a man who's written two memoirs. At Grant Park he walks out with the family, and then they go away.

ROSE: Mmm. Mmm-hmm.

MEACHAM: Biden's back, you know, locked in the bar or something.

ROSE: (haughty chuckle)

MEACHAM: You know, they don't let him out. And have you ever seen a victory speech where there was no one else on stage?

ROSE: Mmm.

MEACHAM: No adoring wife, no cute kid. He is the messenger.

THOMAS: There is a slightly creepy cult of personality about all this. I mean, he's such an admirable --

ROSE: Slightly. Creepy. Cult of personality.


ROSE: What's slightly creepy about it?

THOMAS: It -- it -- it just makes me a little uneasy that he's so singular. He's clearly managing his own spectacle. He's a deeply manipulative guy.

ROSE: Watching him last night in that speech, he finishes --


ROSE: -- and he sort of -- it's almost like he then ascends to look at the circumstance.

MEACHAM: He watches us watching him.

THOMAS: Watching him!

ROSE: Exactly!

THOMAS: He does --

MEACHAM: It's amazing.

ROSE: It is amazing.

THOMAS: He writes about this metaphor being a screen upon which Americans will project. He said they want of Barack Obama; I'm not sure I am Barack Obama.

ROSE: Mmm!

THOMAS: He had -- he has the self-awareness to know that this creature he's designed isn't necessarily a real person, and he's self-aware enough --

ROSE: Ahhhhhh!


Again, I find myself agreeing with Limbaugh.  These people are afraid of this guy.  If you had been reading our blogs instead of shoving your heads up Obama's ass you would have been feeling that fear as long as we have.

Fuck you assholes!!!  This is what happens when journalism transforms into worship.  The people of this country voted for a man that members of the media, who have been following him for two years, do not know, a man whom they now fear.  

That's just fucking great.

alessandro, you can't make that shit up.

shtuey- I heard this briefly on the radio today. It is maddening, as I quit listening to Rose after these same characters continuously extolled the virtues of Sir Barks-a-lot's intellect, hw he reads Reinhold Neibuhr, blablabla, how europe will love us, blablabla, how blabla will be inevitable, blablabla. Now, as always, when the damage has been done by those who caused the damage, they are chickening out and being smartypantses one more time. They should be arrested for tampering with the public's well-being.

They should be fucking bitch slapped. How fucking stupid are Brokaw and Rose and that other douchebag? Scared. What fucking dumbasses! And now we are in serious danger for four years. Medvedev wants a one on with Obama....he is going to find a dumbass stuttering idiot sitting in front of him. Medvedev is going to be laughing his ass off. Obama will promise to cancel our missile defense system in Poland which is already funded and Medvedev will promise to remove his missiles. And Obama will believe him...and guess what the fucking Russians won't remove their missiles. OMG! We are so fucked and all because of the moronic media! Not all media has quit drinking the Tweety...he is going to help Obama's presidency be a success...OMG! I am just sick! The sickest thing is now FoxNews is drinking the koolaid...and slamming Palin with unsubstantiated rumors WTF! Journalism is dead!

Dakinikat said...

well, isn't that JUST ducky.

they JUST figured that out NOW?

What a world! And wtf has Brokaw been doing on MEET the PRESS and didnt this fucker have the opportunity to ASK teleprompter JESUS questions in a debate? Wasn't it his job to get that kind of information out of him before we're stuck with him for four years?

I want my own island. I wonder if I can manage a coup d'etat in Bermuda.

Hi Shtuey; I have been "lurking" your blog and many others this whole surreal primary/election season. I quit watching ANY news back last spring and just about not reading too many newspapers or news magazines too. I get all my news right here in the blogosphere - and I am WAY better informed than any of the people I associate with who listen to MSM news. I even quit subscribing to the Nation - geesh! Katrina Van whatever really grated on me with her constant whining. I can't even remember - was she one of the idiot talking heads at MSNBC or CNN? Doesn't really matter. When The Nation sent me that insane petition to ban ABC for being so hard on Pampers during the PA Primaries, I just had to call them and laugh... The media is the primary reason this country is in the critical state that it is in now. They are responsible for GW/Cheney; the Iraq War and now this Obamanation! Here's a thought. We must keep groups like PUMA and The Denver Group united, and continue to donate to this cause - Since we will probably be stalwarted by any attempts to buy any kind of high profile TV or publication advertising condeming the media, what about billboards? I have no idea what that would cost, but they are seen by a LOT of people! Mark and Heidi did a fantastic job of creating effective ads for Denver Group. They could probably come with a very short but direct angle to let the media know that have failed miserably and encourage people to look elsewhere for their news.... We need to continue to be a thorn in the democrat party's side. You know what they say about those squeaky wheels! Just a thought!!

Keep up you wonderful work. You are my caffeine replacement fix!!

vjh we need to go further than that. We need to consider the media HOSTILE and figure out how to solve the problem they are. Does anyone really think they care if we are not happy with them?

We need to get every person who cares about America to commit to an agenda that truly transcends party, one that restores integrity to the process itself, that prioritizes the question of securing (or rescuing!) the system from corruption - for instance, how to keep the flow of information from being corrupted, and how to ensure elections are not corrupted.

If we do not have these things, all the other issues are totally out of our hands.

WTH? Those bastards. Uh... hmmm... we just now realized... uh... how to put this? Uh.... wow, we sort of don't know anything much about this guy... except that whole Rev wright/Ayers/Rezko bunch .... oops.

Shtuey, I haven't got schtupped since the beginning of this hell, and let me tell you, Petunia is one unhappy politiker.
I've been wondering why I'm more nauseated than usual, and the lightbulb went off in a revelatory salute. When I picture this bumbling fraud holding the reigns, with nukes and dirty bombs pointed just waiting for a sunny day, I realize that Valium won't be enough. I love your outspoken epithets. All I want to do is say to all of those sheeple, "Fuck you." Is that so bad?

Shtuey said...

petunia, you are in dire need of a snog as the Scots are fond of saying. I think this should be at the top of your political agenda.

petunia politik said...

well, shtuey, thanks for the advice but the quasi men that have been contenders for some petunia, have also been Oblahblah sheep. i will convert and get measured for a habit before i cavort with one of "those!"

Shtuey said...

Oy! Sorry darlin'. I wouldn't want you to compromise yourself, and there's no telling how the Pampers Zombie Effect is transmitted. I wouldn't want to lose you to the idiot children.

petunia the nun...sounds hot! ;)
