Strange Bedfellows (Probably Not Literally)

So, when Peggy Noonan got her Ronald Reagan Women's Boy Briefs in a knot over Obama droppin' his g's, I didn't think much of it. Birds fly and wingnuts wingnut. 

The president shouldn’t be using a fateful and divisive word like “impeachment” to raise money and rouse his base. He shouldn’t be at campaign-type rallies where he speaks only to the base, he should be speaking to the country. He shouldn’t be out there dropping his g’s, slouching around a podium, complaining about his ill treatment, describing his opponents with disdain: “Stop just hatin’ all the time.”

I had to include the impeachment part. That's so precious. Damn Obama for raisin' the possibility of his own impeachment! But, to move on to the strange bedfellow:

“First of all, we know it ain’t because of his blackness, so I say stop trying to ‘relate.’ Be a leader. Be f**king presidential,” he said. “Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘It ain’t’ or ‘What it be’ to my friends. But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family [that] cared about me, who has a well-read background, I f**king conjugate.” 

That's right. Motherfuckin' Motherfucking Samuel L. Jackson says just say no to dropping g's. Now, I'm going to pay attention. Better start fucking conjugating, too.

And BTW, Bush did it, too.

SATURDAY SPECIAL: Here's my latest literary effort to the local fish wrapper.  That's a joke. I love the Post Star and most all newspapers in general. And I more than appreciate them running my rants.

     As one of the folks who helped put President Barack Obama into the White House, I’d like to respond to Mr. Prossick’s recent letter. I might suggest the GOP run better candidates, as well. In 2012, the Republican candidate was a man who made his fortune putting people out of work. He was seen as so out of touch with the common man, he couldn’t beat Obama in spite of the economic downturn we were in at the time.
     In 2008, the candidate of the right was someone who, ironically, was not born in the United States. Panama. Check it out. Obama was born in Hawaii, unless we have to go through that whole birth certificate thing again. As I recall, John McCain’s judgment may have been called into question with his choice of a running mate. Anyone heard from her lately? Never mind. Some might further doubt McCain’s judgment over his continual calls to use military force. The short list is Iran, Syria, Russia, Nigeria and Iraq (of course). He called for invading Hong Kong over Edward Snowden. Use the Internet. I’m certain you can find more.
     For those of you who favor that sort of foreign policy, I’d suggest a vote for Elise Stefanik.
Her website states she was director of communications for a think tank called the Foreign Policy Initiative. It was founded by William Kristol, Dan Senor and Robert Kagan. Apparently, their hard work shilling for the invasion of Iraq in 2003 gave their previous group, PNAC, a bad name. They still walk and quack like neo-conservatives, though. As a bonus, she might give the Congress enough votes to go through with impeachment of the president. Wouldn’t that be fun!

LATEST IN IMPEACHMENT NEWS: From Roy Edroso. Bless his heart!, that I don't have to read all that shit.
