Oh yeah? Well, if McCain had won, he'd spend your tax money on sending poodles to Mars!
I mean, as long as we're making shit up, why not go wild?

Though I am also in mourning for the unborn who will die as a result of an Obama Presidency.
The President has no control over abortion. People who choose an executive to run a multi-trillion business on the sole basis of an issue he has no control over are idiots. Bush, who opposed abortion, was unable to stop it. Obama is unable to encourage it. It's out of the President's hands. Anti-abortion laws are illegal as a result of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which is based on the Constitution. The President can't change the Supreme Court's decision; he can only (maybe) appoint Supreme Court judges that he thinks will agree with him in the future (and even there, judges have proved remarkably independent after knowing the President can't fire them) or propose a Constitutional amendment that has to be ratified by 38 of the 50 states. Bush has appointed several Supreme Court judges. They haven't overturned Roe v. Wade, or even revisited it.
Dead babies stay dead.
There's no indication that abortion affects the birth rate. Many who have abortions go on to have babies they wouldn't have had if they had been forced to raise a child they were unprepared for. So for most of the dead babies, there is a living baby who wouldn't have been born had the mother been forced to keep the dead baby. A clump of cells was destroyed to allow a wanted, living child to be raised in a two parent family that could afford to keep it.
Gee remember the media trying to pin cocaine use on President Bush, yet Obama's biographies detailing drug use get a yawn
Obama admitted to drug use. Bush didn't. The news issue wasn't the drug use; it was whether or not the person was a liar.

"For the last month I have been preparing myself for a Sen. Obama win. I am by nature a pessimistic-optimist. I am though much more calm than I expected I would be in the aftermath of President-Elect Obama. It is much easier to remember today that my trust is in Jesus. Though I am also in mourning for the unborn who will die as a result of an Obama Presidency. They will never get to vote in an election, much less get healthcare or participate in the economy. The economy goes up and down. Dead babies stay dead. "
<b>LOL, Bush did little to nothing to stop abortion, except for signing that pointless Partial Abortion Act, which assumes that women are idiots, and always decide to wait until the third term to abort their child.</b>
Maybe we need to pray for the health of Supreme Court members so that they stay healthy another four years and have no desire to retire. Yeah I am only saying this jokingly, but no doubt some will retire and have a replacement named by a President Obama and another generation of children will be killed with the permission of the court. One thing you can say about Democrats is that they never pick a nominee that "grows" in office - they are reliably strict deconstructionists who will find a foreign law that matches their biases or grab a penumbra in a pinch. "
<b>The ones that are most likely to retire are Ginsburg and Stevens. Besides, Obama's choices for his staff, so far, are disappointingly centrist. I'd assume his Supreme Court picks would be, too.</b>
"Being thankful for little things the Democratic Senate does not have 60 seats so I hope this will keep the misnamed Freedom of Choice Act from being able to be signed into law. At least I hope that it is not able to be passed. Unfortunately the Mexico City policy will be history in an Obama administration. Plus I can only imagine the type of people that will be sent to represent us in the U.N. Say hello to CEDAW and the United Nations efforts to make abortion a universal "right." Plus President Bush's restrictions on Federal funding of embryonic stem-cells will be gone and surely the taxpayers will be funding destructive embryonic research regardless of the progress of ethical sources of stem-cells. Federal money will be used for cloning research and yet more embryos will die at the hands of scientists killing in order to preserve life."
<b>Trust me, Obama isn't going to be legalizing human cloning. I don't think there's a single major politician that would. And embryotic stem cell research? Gee, let's throw out embryos that aren't going to be used, rather than just let scientists study on them!
Also, LOL at the last part of that last sentence. 'Killing in order to preserve life'? That's just a bad way to use one's words.</b>
"This is the affirmative action presidency. Affirmative action is notorious for placing skin color above qualification and the electorate decided accordingly. There was hardly a dimes worth of difference between any of the Democratic presidential wannabees other than varying levels of experience. Obama's main qualification was that his father was from Kenya and he was capable with a teleprompter. Though once he became the nominee he had a cascade of forces historically helpful for a Democrat to take the office this time around. "
<b>Major bills sponsored:
Obama-Lugar: programs to destroy heavy conventional weapons, efforts to intercept weapons and materials of mass destruction, and rapid response to proliferation detection and interdiction emergencies.
Obama-Coburn: requires the federal government to set up a searchable online database tracing federal budget spending, to make both the executive branch and Congress accountable for their spending decisions by allowing regular taxpayers to follow the money.
Obama-Coburn: prohibits the DHS from entering into open-ended, no-bid contracts for emergency response activities to stop the abuse of no-bid contracting in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Obama-Brownback-Inhofe-DeWine: promotes relief, security and Democracy in the Democratic Republic of the Congo with a specified amount of foreign assistance funding.
Obama-Hatch: protects individuals’ rights to continue donating to charities and religious organizations during bankruptcy proceedings.
Major committees he's on:
Obama is on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Veterans Affairs Committee, Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
He may not have been around for a while, but he's no slacker, and he often knows what he's talking about.</b>
"Though at least now we know how many racists there are in the United States. Those 56,280,668+ that voted for Sen. McCain are obvious racists for not voting for "The One." And just because you might have voted for Alan Keyes - well you're racist too for not voting for Obama. The idea that the election of Sen. Obama is going to heal race relations I think is laughable. The media will frame every opposition to a President Obama's policies as racially tinged just as they did during the election. "
<b>Umm... I haven't heard of anyone that says that you're a racist for not voting Obama. Undeniably, some McCain voters were racist, just as some Obama voters were. However, as far as cries of 'racism' go, I haven't really seen any reputed website or article that agrees with your strawman. OTOH, there are a lot of right wing blogs that say that Obama's a terrorist Muslim that was the illegitimate child of Malcolm X, among other claims. I'll withhold charges of racism, for the moment, and just say that you people can be really FUCKING stupid and biased.</b>
As far as the media goes I don't know which I liked worse. The media that use to pretend to have some objectivity or the one that simply became campaign operatives. Media bias is nothing new and selective reporting has been with us for quite a time. The editing of the Palin interview to make her look worse and the L.A. Times withholding of a video tape are just some of the egregious examples this time around. The media can determine what the Palin family ate the night before by inspecting their garbage can, but could find nothing worthy to investigate on Sen. Obama. Gee remember the media trying to pin cocaine use on President Bush, yet Obama's biographies detailing drug use get a yawn. I hear that the Main Stream Media is going to be elevated to a cabinet position by President Obama because of the good work they did for him. No longer will dissent be patriotic as the media said during the Bush years. "
<b>Today, there was a CNN panel that had Stephen Hayes (weekly standard), Brian DeBose (Washington Times), Amy Holmes (Bill Frist speechwriter), and Kevin Madden (Mitt Romney partisan) that was giving advice for Obama. Yes, the media (esp. MSNBC) has several liberals, yet overall, I think that there are more conservatives (esp. Fox) in the news, or the conservatives at least are given more air time. Besides, to endorse McCain's disaster of a campaign would have made your media organization look foolish. Notice the amount of newspapers that switched from Bush to Obama endorsements this year?</b>
"Now we will also have a culture of death Catholic Vice President who will be putting the vice into Vice President with his support of many forms of abortion. I bet the media can hardly wait to snap a picture of him receiving Communion to gloat. The USCCB meets soon to discuss "practical and pastoral implications of political support for abortion." Will the scandal of Sen. Biden be addressed? Probably not, but I would love to be wrong."
<b>There's no scandal here, although your 'culture of death' has some point to it in referral to Biden, because he's been one of the most hawkish senators on the War on Drugs.</b>
I hear that Sen. Obama will be FedExing 30 pieces of silver to Doug Kmiec. Moloch is quite happy with all of the Catholics that voted for Sen. Obama. According to Catholic Culture "Among Catholic voters who attend Mass weekly, McCain won majority support: 54- 45%. Among those who do not attend weekly Mass, the margin for Obama was an overwhelming 61- 37%. Thus Obama drew his support from inactive Catholics." So 45 percent of Mass going Catholics supported the most extreme supporter of abortion ever in a Presidential race. The unborn chopped up via scalpels will be glad to hear about hope and change."
<b>I'm sorry, but I cannot read this in any way, except that you're implying that only Catholics who attend Mass should vote. In case you haven't noticed, your arrogant, polarizing variation of Christianity doesn't control politics anymore, except for when some Republican needs to pander for support. Maybe the Catholics voted for him because he was more opposed to the death penalty than McCain? And don't Popes unanimously condemn the death penalty? Hmmm...
At any rate, this is an idiotic piece that doesn't address Obama's faults on any serious policy issue, just that of abortion, which should be on demand, federally funded, and ignored in politics.</b>

"Dead babies stay dead."
That's a good thing. I hate when the dead babies get up and start wandering around.
"Media bias is nothing new and selective reporting has been with us for quite a time. The editing of the Palin interview to make her look worse..."
Now, now, don't blame the media. Palin makes herself look like an idiot, the media just helps us see her make an idiot of herself.
"No longer will dissent be patriotic as the media said during the Bush years."
You haven't been paying attention. Dissent is the life blood of the Democratic party. There will be dissent every step of the way.
"Will the scandal of Sen. Biden be addressed?"
Being a pro-choice Catholic isn't a scandal, twinkie. Something like 2/3 of U.S. Catholics are pro-choice.
"The unborn chopped up via scalpels will be glad to hear about hope and change."
Hardly any abortions involve the use of a scalpel. You might want to look into your subject before pontificating.

Mmmm, sorry, Jeff, what did you say? I was with you to "my trust is in Jesus," then I was distracted by the sound of my breathing.

Nice opera you wrote there. I feel that the plot doesn't make sense in Act II and the part where the fat guy eats dumplings lacks gravitas. Apart from that, it was riveting.

Papabear for the win.

Silly Jeff, aborted fetuses aren't 'dead'. That would imply they were ever alive.

I love fundie Catholics almost as much as I love fundie Muslims, fundie pentecostals, and IFBaptists. The sheer hypocrisy and arrogance of refusing to accept that another person could still be a Christian(or Muslim) and disagree with your narrow self-righteous view of religion is the hallmark of all fundies. Perhaps you could explain the scandal to me of many Catholic bishops telling their parishioners to vote for Bush after he licked the butt of fundie protestant groups who publish books calling the "Catholic church a cult" and the Pope "an unwitting too lo of the anti-Christ"? And how many pieces of silver are the deaths of American soldiers worth, so that Bush, Cheney, and crew can collect war profits for their cronies and bigtime GOP contributors? How about the millions of LIVING men, women, and CHILDREN who are now prey to disease and death for the greed of the Republicans and their bigtime insurance company contributors? Or the children who will suffer cold and hunger for big-oil profits to fill GOP coffers(90% of big oil contributions went to the GOP)? Seems to me like your view of morality is awfully selective and biased toward one issue(and one POLITICAL, NOT RELIGIOUS AGENDA)!

Yes, that's one thing I could say.
If I wanted to say something that made absolutely no sense. 'Grab a penumbra in a pinch'? WTF is that supposed to mean?
11/10/2008 5:13:48 AM
This is what I got from that: Blah blah blah abortion blah blah n****r blah abortion blah blah evil media blah blah blah cocaine blah blah gonna take my ball and go home blah blah...
11/10/2008 5:58:06 AM
But on the first line, did St. Bush do anything to stop abortions? He had 8 years to stop them, yet nothing.
11/10/2008 6:21:12 AM
