He’s onto your B.S.

It comes as no shock to anyone who has ever played a game of poker, but Obama has opted out of the public financing that has caught his Republican straw man in legal hot water.

David Brooks whines, “Obama isn’t Uncle Tom, Whaaaa!”

I need to take a moment, point at David Brooks and do a “Ha ha!” in my best Nelson Muntz voice. If you think this “flip-flop/two Obamas” meme is going to stick, Mr. Brooks, you are as truly out of touch as the five-dollar words you use in your transparent columns.

Watching these right-wingers cries to mommy, “It’s not fair—he’s not a moron!” as reality slowly dawns on them.

“Black people dominate sports in the United States. 20% of the population and 90% of the final four. We own this shit. Basketball, baseball, football, golf, tennis, and as soon as they make a heated hockey rink we’ll take that shit too.”
Chris Rock

Looks like “Black People” found out the “White House” has climate control, and all I can do is cheer, “Yeah, take that shit too!”

This election cycle is definitely going to be fun. :-)

  1. The TPM article, ‘McCain Breaking the Law in Plain Sight,’ covers something important that much of the mainstream media coverage seems to be missing. Also, the Republican National Committee is still loads of $$$ ahead of the DNC and will bring that to bear full-force in the general.

  2. What I find fascinating about the memes is how efficiently and regularly they are thrown out there. By this I mean the “flip-flopping politician meme” was not just on Brooks but on every conservative and many “moderates” out there that day.

    After a quick poll, they dropped it and moved to the “elitist” meme. Again, a full court press, again a small delay, and dropped.

    It shows how effectively they control the media. Agenda-setting, like this, normally wins you nearly any election. This time, I think it’s looking very bad.
