Just in case you weren't clear by now...

First Obama put up a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary.

But apparently that wasn't quite enough to really demonstrate the disdain he feels for the sensibilities of the average American.

But fear not - I think he's finally got it dialed in this time.

How about a kiddie-p0arn-attorney for Deputy Attorney General?
(gotta watch those filters)

From Fidelis:

“Ogden’s record is nothing short of obscene.

... He has opposed filters on library computers protecting children from Internet smut, and successfully defended the right of pornographers to produce material with underage children.”

As a lawyer in private practice, Ogden has argued for an unlimited abortion license, gays in the military, and has urged courts to treat traditional definitions of marriage as a social prejudice.

“A vast majority of Americans support parental notification before a minor’s abortion and protecting kids from Internet pornography in our libraries,...“Yet David Ogden has fought tooth and nail against these common sense laws protecting our children from harm.

At a time when America’s families are under increasing assault, Mr. Ogden is a dangerous choice for a position whose responsibilities include the enforcement of our nation’s laws.

So - do you Bitterly-Clinging, simple-minded, flyover, racist, rube-hicks get it now?

Has your Commander-in-Chief done his job of 'Communicating' to you?

This Administration will brook no insolence from your simplisme, un-nuanced, back-country, right-and-wrong judgmentalism!

Get back to work - your betters will decide your fate!

  1. Maybe it's just me, but it seems that Obama has brought all the worst of Chicago politics with him to the White House. I know that MUST be impossible since he is such a political outsider, but I'm just saying.

    But hey, I'm just a gun-clinging, god frearin', redneck, inbred bastard I guess so what would I know.

    Now if you'll excuse me, cousin Betty is giving me that come hither look...

    I only have time for a quick pop-in and link post. :)

    There are a couple of fairly scathing critiques of Obama's economic team this weekend: one from Salon's David Sirota on Obama's Team of Zombies, and one by the perennially cranky Frank Rich.

    I am sometimes reminded of the scene in Halberstam's The Best and the Brightest wherein Lyndon Johnson raves to Sam Rayburn about the young geniuses of academia that Kennedy had surrounded himself with. Doubtful, Rayburn replied:

    "Well, Lyndon, you may be right and they may be every bit as intelligent as you say, but I'd feel a whole lot better about them if just one of them had run for sheriff once."


  3. Gotta agree with you on this one, Tyrone. The academically-lauded but untested-in-the-real-world types that the liberals routinely toss up as "the best and the brightest" cause way more problems than they solve.


We reserve the right to delete comments, but the failure to delete any particular comment should not be interpreted as an endorsement thereof.

In general, we expect comments to be relevant to the story, or to a prior comment that is relevant; and we expect some minimal level of civility. Defining that line is inherently subjective, so try to stay clear of insulting remarks. If you respond to a comment that is later deleted, we may take your response with it. Deleting your comment isn't a personal knock on you, so don't take it as such.

We allow a variety of ways for commenters to identify themselves; those who choose not to do so should take extra care. Absent any prior context in which they may be understood, ironic comments may be misinterpreted. Once you've earned a reputation for contributing to a conversation, we are likely to be more tolerant in those gray areas, as we'll understand where you're coming from.
