The Devil loves Obama

It seems everyone running against a Republican candidate is supported by the bogey man of the day and that's held true throughout my lifetime. Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Min, Nikita Kruschev, the Anti-Christ: they all fully endorsed Democrats, if we're to believe the cannot-tell-a-lie Republicans. So of course it's no surprise to learn that Kim Jong Il would just love to see Barak Obama elected; at least that's what Lyin' Laura Ingraham was jibbering about Monday on Fox News.

Hugo Chavez, Fidel Castro and all the boys over at Hamas are all wearing the Big O T-Shirt these days. Of course one might speculate that any of these evildoing action figures would be smart enough to know that their actual support would harm a candidate and thus would express a fondness for those they would least like to win, but Laura and her limp-brained fans aren't big on logical processes when it's so much fun to hate.

Anyway, now that Kim's axis may no longer be quite as evil, we may suspect that his support will swing over to the Republican side. Will Laura have to decide that he's not so bad after all?

Steve Clemons, a senior fellow at the New America Foundation announced on his blog, The Washington Note, last night that George may overcome Dick's objections and take Mr. Kim off the "terror watch list" by tomorrow. Whether or not he will be moved to some lesser list, like the Nexus of Nasty remains to be seen but I have to wonder if Bush is really trying to engage in some statecraft these days -- just for the hell of it -- or whether he's just trying to slide North Korea to the sidlines so he can concentrate on the remaining axial, Iran. You know, the one with oil.

I thought Laura was on strike for more cash -- glad to know she's back in full Vaudeville fashion. I missed her comments, but caught the dust up wherein Pope Dobson proclaimed that Obama was "distorting" the Bible. Gee, you'd think Mr. Dobson would know that calling attention to Obama's interpretation of Biblical teachings might remind people he's not a Muslim -- and that's got to be bad for business. Ingraham, Dobson, Rush, and their limp-brained fans deserve each other.

And aren't there half a million Biblical interpretations? Isn't the history of Christianity the history of torturing and murdering people all over these interpretations?

I'm sure Saint Dobson gets his interpretations directly from the burning bush. . .

Ok, Nexus of Nasty is hilarious! Which countries make that list?

At least the McCain campaign is NOT prohibiting their candidate from taking pictures with Muslims.

Capt. Fogg said...

I guess the Nexus of Nasty is nearly the whole world from certain viewpoints. France would be near the top of the list since they had the nerve to be right about the WMD problem and didn't want to pile on Iraq.

Well, you're damned if you take pictures with Muslims and you're damned if you don't. Republicans are just big on damnation. Of course the pictures taken of Obama in Kenya wearing a turban have been around the world more times than any satellite and get more frothing at the mouth furious each time.

Well they’ll stone you when you’re walking on the street
They’ll stone you when you’re trying to keep your seat
They’ll stone you when you’re walking on the floor
They’ll stone you when you’re walking to the door
But I would not feel so all alone everybody must get stoned
