A Girl Like You

Today is my b-day and I received my first blog award from Oborne Ink.

Hell of a nice was to start the day.

Thanks, Matt!

Osborne Ink Wins Honest Weblog Award:

"5) Alabama Ass Whuppin' Not only does this blog keep me up to date with the doings of The Drive By Truckers, but the anonymous author of this blog is, like me, a member of that rare breed: southern liberals."

_______

He's looking more and more like a one termer everyday.

Elected with overwhelming majorities in both the house and the senate. Was put in the office to finally do the will of the people. He'd rather be 'bipartisan', though. Fucking worthless.

Rahm has engineered another Clinton, it is looking like. Rahm and Messina need to go.

Fucking sad, but unless Obama has some masterful sandbagging plan in place that shows itself in the next month, he's fucking toast with all liberals and most independents.

And we'll get to hear how the Republicans brought him down when they didn't have a goddamn thing to do with it.

‘Political Brain’ author: Obama sounds like Dukakis | Cynthia Tucker:

"“When people are anxious and angry, they look to their leaders for a way to channel that anger that is productive. That is part of what leadership is. (But) this president and his leadership team believe that leadership is channeling hope, and even touching anybody’s anger and anxiety is off limits. It’s the politics of Dukakis,” Westen said.

“What I think the White House hasn’t gotten is that if the public is angry and anxious and you don’t talk about that anger, and it doesn’t look like you feel it, you start to look like George H.W. Bush in the recession (of the early 1990s). Out of touch,” Westen said."

I mean, yes, he does have to contend with this truth, but it is his fault for note owning the terms of the debate from the get go.

I'm so tired of pussy-ass, sold out fucking Democrats.

Daily Kos: "Trying to get the President KILLED" Dan Savage NAILS it all, from "the Birchers to the Birthers"

As I reflect on this day 0' birth, this could be me in 30 years.

He did what he said he do, though.

Stranger allegedly slaps crying child in store - CNN.com:

"Police said he hit her four or five times. 'See, I told you I would shut her up,' the suspect allegedly told the mother.

Authorities described 'slight redness' to the toddler's face. Before he was arrested, Stephens apologized to the mother for striking the girl, the incident report said."

And just because I really dig The Smithereens:

Happy birthday, JPW!!!! Are you as old and gray as I am?

There are no adults left in the (Republican) room, and it is terrifying.

Obama lost me at Rick Warren. Hopefully I won't be so foolish as to vote for a Republicrat for president again...As you know, Obama was the first one I had voted for since McGovern. Still proud of my McGovern vote. And probably the last, until Kucinich is nominated.

Hope this comment posts. Yesterday's didn't....
