"Unite under Obama/Biden or get on the mothership and leave"
Now that Barack Obama has picked Joe Biden to be his running mate, the Democrat campaign is reminding me of Mr. Roth's Chemistry class. Let me explain. When I was in high school, I had a chemistry teacher, Mr. Roth, who was incredibly accident prone as well as having a Robert Shrum type cloud of bad luck hanging over him. This made his class incredibly interesting. Not a day went by that we didn't have a bundle of laughs in Mr. Roth's class. One time, he demonstrated that we should always have a beaker of water at hand when doing lab experiments in case we spilled acid on our hands. So Mr. Roth demonstrated with a beaker of water and poured it over his hands. Only problem is Mr. Roth made a mistake. He actually poured a beaker of clear acid on his hands. Another time, during a test, he was reading a newspaper too close to a bunsen burner and the paper caught fire. However, the greatest laugh I ever had in my life came the time Mr. Roth was showing us a chemistry film. Suddenly the film stopped and we could actually see on the screen that the film was melting and about to catch fire. A desperate Mr. Roth attempted to turn the lights on in the dark room order to have a better look. Only problem is that despite flipping the light switch over and over again, the light remained off. Of course, all this time the class was roaring with laughter. Then another chemistry teacher from next door, Mr. Carpenter, walked in to see what all the commotion was about. When Mr. Roth screamed that the light wasn't working, Mr. Carpenter, with one calm flick of the switch immediately turned the light on. Everyone in the class was rolling on the floor in laughter. Yes, Mr. Roth entered the pages of legend with his klutzy antics. In fact, I kept telling Mr. Roth stories for a very long time. Another member of that class, Mike Karpovich, was also greatly amused by Mr. Roth and everytime he spotted a short bald guy with white fringe hair, he would say, "Hey, there's Mr. Roth!" Of course it was never him. Then one day years later, we were both sharing a ride to the University of Florida and were at a turnpike rest stop. We had a meal in the restaurant and were on the way out when Karpovich, for maybe the thousandth time, pointed at the back of a bald head and said, "Hey, there's Mr. Roth." And for the thousandth time I replied sarcastically, "Yeah, sure." However, this time we did a double take. Upon hearing the words, "Mr. Roth," the bald guy turned his head. It REALLY was Mr. Roth!!! Yes, the knights of old were on a fruitless search for the Holy Grail but Karpovich and I actually did find our Holy Grail in the form of Mr. Roth. And it was like Mr. Roth had a bright aura shining over his dome as we nostagically recalled with him many of the funny events in his classroom (and I confessed that I shoved the bunsen burner towards his newspaper with a broomstick that Karpovich handed me).
So how does all this relate to Obama and Biden? Simple. Just as I really looked forward to the comedy entertainment of Mr. Roth's chemistry class, I am really anticipating the comedy to be provided by the comedy team of Obama bin Biden. Right from the get-go we got some great laughs when Joe Biden called Obama, "Barack America." This is only the start, folks, There will be many more laughs to come so enjoy it while you can. Meanwhile the DUmmies are worried about their new team as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Unite under Obama/Biden or get on the mothership and leave." Already I'm laughing at the vision of the DUmmies boarding the Heaven's Gate mothership. So let us join the DUmmies about to board the mothership in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, knowing that Mr. Roth is still lurking out there somewhere, is in the [barackets]:
Unite under Obama/Biden or get on the mothership and leave
[Free Democrat party talking points Kool-Aid aboard the mothership!]
No more bitching and moaning, he IS our VP Candidate.
[Try not to laugh too loudly.]
THAT is all.
[THAT is an order! Now on to the other mothership DUmmies...]
We have an election to win. The negativity needs to stop now.
[And the laughter starts.]
All this bitching and moaning around here is annoying...and we wonder why we have a hard time winning elections.
[It's FUn to see DUmmies crack up. It fact, it cracks me up.]
It's not really about Obama. It's about the people who nominated him, and the direction of the party. I don't like the right-centrist christian direction the party has moved, and is headed. I don't care for the right-centrist christian positions and rhetoric of the nominee.
[What delusional drug are you taking?]
What we don't solidly know yet, is how Obama is going to change things once he gets into office, how many promises he will keep, etc.,
[Great. You support Obama and have no idea what he is actually going to do.]
I'm waiting and biding my time. I hope Obama gets elected. Then he'll be the one to watch. After all (as Harry Truman said), the BUCK STOPS right at the desk in the Oval Office.
[But the BUCK is above Obama's pay grade.]
I am wondering why the Obama followers keep telling us to "get lost." If we get lost, Obama loses by a landslide. Don't they even realize this? Why is the Democratic Party turning into a Cult of Personality for Barack Obama?
Why are we being bullied and mistreated for expressing our fears and our opinions.
[Heretics who don't believe in the beloved Obamassiah shall be burned at the stake.]
If you come here BASHING Obama and praising hillary, you'll get no respect from me or from many others. You might even get some granite.
[Let the tombstoning ceremony begin!]
This bullshit "cult of personality" meme was bad enough during the primaries, it's absolutely inexcusable now.
[Better tell that to Newsweek the next time they publish a pic of the Obamassiah with a halo around his head.]
The point here is that this thread demands that we unite or leave the board. I don't do anything on demand. My response is more about the bombastic demand than it is about Obama. If you'd like me to keep my dislike to myself, don't demand it, and it's more likely to happen.
[Party unity is a beautiful thing to behold.]
The mothership has arrived!
In 2012, we will either have an incumbent President, and won't need a primary. Or we will be in a total dictatorship, (or all dead) and it won't matter.
[In 2012 you'll be in a Walmart detention center.]
By the end of the week, any phony Democrats who are merely posing will be driven from the party convention and structure. And good riddance to them.
[I'm looking forward to the Denver Purge Trials.]
Those burnboards drive me nuts. It's like high school.
[Were you also in Mr. Roth's chemistry class?]
I'm pretty stoked about Obama/Biden but...um... there's a mothership!? Where do I get on?
[At the geographic center of DUmmieland.]
I'm not inspired by Obama nor by his running mate.
[They're inspiring a lot of mirth in me.]
