Warm and Fuzzy

Hello everyone!

Some people aren't good at subtleties. Luckily, someone who works for the Obama campaign realized this and consequently ordered a podium placard so that there would be no doubt, not even to the dumbest of the dumb, what the Obama campaign is all about:

Now, Barack Obama is a fairly tall man. He's not exactly big, but he's not skinny, either. Yet that placard makes him look like the real Steve Novick. Except half black. And without a left hook. BTW, if you live in Oregon, please register as a member of the Democratic Party and vote for Steve Novick in the primary in May. He even kicked butt with some idiot host on Fox News (but in a good way), for crying out loud.

Anyway, the Obama P.R. people are really good at what they do. Hell, even my cynical self is beginning to come around. If you haven't seen it already, here's a video that's been making the rounds on "the Internets" featuring some musician who turned snippets of Obama's speeches into a song:

Isn't that inspiring? I feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Maybe it's just the alcohol.

Still, I haven't been inspired by a president since, er, well, ever. There have been a few inspiring presidential candidates, but none that even came close to winning. I wonder what it's like to vote for someone who wins? On second thought, I did vote for Peter DeFazio. But nobody outside of my district knows who he is, so he doesn't count.

Anyway, not to be outdone, a John McCain supporter made a similar video:

This one was not quite warm nor fuzzy.

Oh yeah, some preacher and a former president's wife are apparently running, too. They must be third party candidates or something.

Clinton says Obama relies on 'words' (AP)

These so called 'words', I wonder.. Is she suggesting that Obama is using fake words like strategery and nookyoular?

Hello anon!

It's an Ebonics thing. When Obama decided to run, people would say, "Yo, dis here crib be effed in the a! Brace yoself, foo!" He'd reply, "Word."

Translation: "This country is headed in the wrong direction!" His response: "I concur."

Clinton is simply being critical of his relationship with his base. She's jealous that she isn't as cool as he is.
