Seriously? Seriously?

Your Wiccapundit loves him some show tunes.  South Pacific, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, and of more recent vintage The Will Rogers Follies (with lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, who wrote the lyrics to Guys and Dolls).  But I hates me some truly amateurish community college theater major-bush league-municipal theater company attempt at being both politically relevant and off-off-off Broadway at the same time.   That, of course, would be One Term More, a website devoted to getting Obama the second term he so richly deserves, and the “musical” production found at the site.

This has to be the most wretched example of Lefty propaganda ever to see the light of day.  (click on the link, as the video can’t be embedded).  Watch it, if you can.  Watch it, if you dare.  If you can make it through the entire 6:12, you are capable of withstanding a waterboarding personally administered by Dick Cheney.

One Term More

Seriously, we are into territory that makes Plan Nine From Outer Space look like Oscar-worthy material.  I note that the title is One Term More, rather than One More Term.  I suppose that this was deliberate in order to provide more rhyming opportunities for the Thesaurusly-challenged librettist responsible for gems like this:

This man who would unseat Barack’s
A bleak choice at the ballot box.

Really?  You rhymed “Barack’s” with “box?”  I never would have seen that.  I guess that’s why you make your living at this kind of work.

Filibusters. Budget scrums.
Ultrasounds & speculums.
To the Dark Side they’ve succumbed.

Hmmm, let’s see: “scrums,” “speculums,” and “succumbed.”  Milton?  A piker.  Byron?  A hack.  This guy knows how to write poetry.  I bet those dead English guys could never have come up with a stinging retort like calling Republicans “fetid nuts.”

I guess they didn’t call the show One More Term because the only words that rhyme with “term” are “germ,” “sperm,” and “squirm.”  Which, if you  think about it, could all be used in one sentence and still accurately reflect the current administration.

Honestly, I think Spanky, Darla, and Alfalfa did a better job when one of the Little Rascals said “Hey! Let’s put on a show!”

I cannot give this performance the review it deserves.  I leave that to Cousin Vinny:

Obama’s Underappreciated Success?

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

- Elphaba

This article detailing the secrets of Obama’s “underappreciated” success was linked to by a friend of mine on a social networking site.  She’s thoroughly brainwashed, and I didn’t see the use in pointing out to her how bloody stupid this this, since she thinks communism is a dandy idea, for reals.  I skimmed through the article, produced by TIME magazine in partnership with Communist News Network CNN, thinking, “What planet are these people from?  And how can we send them back to it?”

Lets peruse some of the statements made that are so absurd, they gave me a Porky Pig as Friar Tuck moment of unmitigated mirth:

But by Election Day 2010, Obama will have soundly achieved many of his chief campaign promises while running a highly competent, scandal-free government.

Let’s start with the competence Obama has shown. As he proved in the campaign, he is a master of personnel decisions, choosing people who are excellent at what they do, but also requiring that they play nicely with others.

Wait…it gets even better:

Obama’s two best personnel decisions are probably the two men serving right below him: Vice President Joe Biden and White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel. Yes, Biden still falls victim to caricature as an irrepressible big mouth and is the butt of late-night jokes. And Emanuel can be overly brash and flutter nerves on Capitol Hill and among Administration allies. But Obama knew what he was getting in both men, and they have performed up to or above his expectations.

You simply cannot make this shit up!  Oh, yes, and furthermore…according to the author, Mark Halperin, Obama (unlike Bill Clinton) has managed to “preserve the majesty of office.” *cough*  There is already such a wealth of evidence to refute every statement this wingnut  makes in this embarrassingly fawning, ass-kissing article, that a person would have to be completely without reason to agree with it.  Yet my friend thinks it is all true, but I guess that’s what a liberal education will buy you.

Idiocy Overload

It’s not that I’ve had nothing to post about, it’s that there is too much to post about, and real life gets in the way of sitting down and composing my thoughts.  Too much nasty shit is coming down the pike, and it sometimes gets overwhelming to to contemplate it all.  For instance:

Honestly, it just goes on and on and on and on.  No time for a breather.  We are swimming hard just to keep our heads above water, and it would be nice to see the tide turn in our favor.

But enough about what’s bothering me.  Let’s talk about you.  What’s going on with y’all right now?

Oh, and Aggie,  what do you think of these?

Own a home? Want to sell it? Too bad…you’re hosed.

Friday, April 16th, 2010

We all knew it was coming, and as promised, The Cap and Tax bill is scheduled to be voted on in the Senate.   This legislation is ugly, folks; not that we’d expect anything less of our Congresscreeps.  Among the many draconian gems we can expect to have imposed from this legislation, the most economically disastrous one is this: you will not be able to sell your house.  As stated at Repubx:

  • In effect, this bill prevents you from selling your home without the permission of the EPA administrator.

  • To get this permission, you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured.

  • Then the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water efficiency requirements.

  • Then you will have to get your home measured again and get a license (called a “label” in the Act) that must be posted on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort of like the Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or air conditioner.

  • If you don’t get a high enough rating, you can’t sell. And, the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every year, even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the Act.

The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap & Trade program (AKA the “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009″) and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations and standards he alone determines to be in the government’s best interest. Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.

This is glaringly unconstitutional, but that little fact will not deter the current runaway Senate.  What we are experiencing in the era of Hope and Change is the rape of the American economy.  It doesn’t seem to matter how loud we scream…all we manage to do is amuse Obama, and the hits keep coming. Disgusting.  Democrats need an ass whupping on a major scale, and as I’ve said before–November cannot come soon enough to suit me.

The Treason of the MSM

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

As a follow up to my earlier post about the false information in Obama’s resume, I present you with this follow up article.  Here’s an excerpt:

The White House directive was issued as part of a deal struck between the Office of the President and reporters of the mainstream media.

In exchange for being given unprecedented access to Barack Obama, reporters would promise not to report ‘certain matters’ they may discover while covering the President.

From Steve Clemons at The Washington Note:

What I have learned after discussions over the last several days with several journalists who either have regular access to the White House or are part of the White House press corps is that there is a growing sense that access is traded for positive stories — or perhaps worse, an agreement that things learned will not be reported in the near term.

What, exactly, is meant by ‘things learned?’  What information could a journalist uncover while having close access to the President that would be deemed so damaging, embarrassing, or even worse, that the White House is exhibiting a near-paranoia in making sure such information is not reported?

And more importantly, why would any true journalist who is worth his/her salt agree to such a scheme?

Clemons believes that part of the reason is that some reporters who cover the White House want to write books about Obama.

A ‘sell-out’ to the dreaded Capitalism on the part of liberals?  Say it ain’t so.

The agreement between the White House and reporters is mutually beneficial.  The White House gets what it wants.  Any information that it considers to be negative or damaging to Obama will not be reported.  The reporters also get what they want–unprecedented access to the President of the United States, which will help their careers and eventually earn them millions in book royalties.

In the meantime, what are the citizens not being told about Barack Obama?

Disgusting, isn’t it?

Paging Leni Riefenstahl…

I love music, but I despise talentless hacks who prostitute it in the service of hagiographic agitprop on behalf of Our Divine Leader.

Watch this, if you can.  I couldn’t make it to the end without gagging.

Triumph of the Will? Amateur hour compared to this.
