She just can’t stop

Michelle Obama apparently decides to shoot off her mouth again at the expense of Mr. Snorey Stinker:

Accusing API of colluding with American internet bloggers in an effort to bring down her husband, Mrs Obama said she decided to call API because of what she termed, API’s help to spread rumours created by American bloggers and other racist media outlets in their efforts to damage a black man’s name, saying she hopes African Media was mature enough to be in the front to give unwavering support to her husband, a man Africans should identify themselves with.

When API told her that our online news media was only relaying what the American Bloggers and other media outlets had discovered through their investigations, Mrs Obama was angered and she came out loud with the following: “African press International is supposed to support Africans and African-American view,” and she went to state that, “it is strange that API has chosen to support the racists against my husband. There is no shame in being adopted by a step father. All dirt has been thrown onto my husband’s face and yet he loves this country. My husband and I know that there is no law that will stop him from becoming the president, just because some American white racists are bringing up the issue of my husband’s adoption by His step father. The important thing here is where my husband’s heart is at the moment. I can tell the American people that My husband loves this country and his adoption never changed his love for this country. He was born in Hawaii, yes, and that gives him all the right to be an American citizen even though he was adopted by a foreigner; says Michelle Obama on telefon to API.”

The hysterically fearful reaction of the Obamanists tells you all you really need to know about the likelihood that the API report is accurate. No doubt that if the recording is made public – as API indicates it will do – the truth squad will shift their argument to insist that the tape is faked.

This isn’t just the most importantest, it’s the bestest presidential campaign ever!

Obama cries

Rachel Lucas fails to empathize with the Democratic president-in-waiting’s complaints about how the entire media isn’t sufficiently supportive of his magical negritude:

If there were no CNN, NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, CSPAN, PBS, NPR, the LA Times, the New York Times, and every other major paper in the country, a radical socialist with insufficient experience like Obama would be down in the polls about 30 points.

You want to talk about an entire industry – an entire apparatus – designed to perpetuate a cultural schism, to give one guy an edge over another guy based on soundbites and bias? You want to talk about that? And you think it’s WORKING AGAINST YOU, SENATOR BARACK OBAMA???

Sorry for all the yelling. I just simply cannot believe my own eyes on this one. I truly cannot FATHOM that this man, who is supposedly intelligent and “aware”, would actually say with a straight face that there’s an entire industry – in the form of the media – that is anything other than his own personal cheerleading corps.

Of course, Fox News is about 10 percent to the right of the rest of the mainstream media, so it’s not as if it makes any difference anyhow. But I’m enjoying the pre-Obama administration period already; that pragmatic Karl Rove Republicanism really worked out well, didn’t it?

It’s such a good thing Republicans didn’t stick to republican principles, because otherwise they wouldn’t be so popular with the electorate and might well be looking at a Democratic White House, House, and Senate.

The cult of personality

The weird thing about the left is that they incessantly worry about creeping fascism even as they embrace it:

The Racine school district’s use of an eighth grade textbook that includes a chapter on Democrat Barack Obama but nothing on his opponent John McCain is unfair and troubling, the Wisconsin Republican Party argued Thursday.

I couldn’t care less about the “unfair” aspect as this relates to the election, but there is something unusually creepy about these Obamanation phenomena. As enthusiastic as people could be about Reagan, Clinton, and Bush the Younger – no one particularly liked Poppy – they’ve never been the beneficiary of this ludicrous Soviet-style beatification.
