No man should be allowed to be the President who does not understand hogs, or hasn’t been around a manure pile.” ~~Harry S. Truman (1884–1972), Kansas farmer and 33rd President of the United States, from a joke in 1948, at an Iowa plowmen’s competition.

Oh what would Harry have to say about a woman being allowed to be President, or even Vice President?

The Second Coming

September 11, 2008


Coming hot on the heels of the Democrats’ successful “Lipstick on a Pig” mantra which has won them virtually 99% of America’s women’s vote, they are now brilliantly going after the Christian vote with a new mantra. Yesterday at 10:22 am on Capitol Hill Representative Steve Cohen (D-TN) repeated the Democrat’s talking points for the umpteenth time. They want us to understand that Barack Obama was a community organizer … just like Jesus Christ, and Sarah Palin is a governor, … just like … Pontius Pilate.

This new mantra shows the world how Democrats always bring up religion when it suits their politics, but if anyone else in the political arena mentions the name of God, Democrats start shouting about separation of Church and State. 

Why compare Sarah Palin to Pontius Pilate? Pontius Pilate actually put Jesus to death. Is this why the Democrats are trying to crucify “Governor” Palin? Do they believe she is out to destroy their Jesus whom they call “The One” – Barack Obama? What other explanation is there for this new mantra?

And how many Christian votes will the Democrats win for comparing Barack Obama to Jesus Christ, even when done from Capital Hill?

Pea-brained Sexists

September 11, 2008

Here is the Face of Sexism. Matt Damon wants you to know that mothers cannot be Vice President of the United States because they may have attended too many hockey games. Somehow, that makes sense to him. He also connects dinosaurs to the nuclear codes, which although not sexist, is certainly inexplicable, except to him.

Take an actor away from his script and “it’s like, you know, it’s like bizarre, it’s like, I don’t know, you know, it’s like, like, crazy, you know, it’s like, … I don’t know, it’s … it’s … it’s like dinosaurs and Disney World, you know.”

Matt Damon – just another pea-brained Obama supporter, just another sexist.

Obama’s Granny Attacked

September 11, 2008

While every Republican and his cousin is jumping to the defense of Governor Sarah Palin, a gun-slinging Alaskan Annie Oakley who needs no help defending herself from Democrat attacks, another female named Sarah is being attacked and no one cares except the BBC.

Poor Sarah Hussein Obama lives in daily fear, because she has already been the target of invaders at her home in a remote village in Kenya, only because she is the grandmother of presidential candidate Barack Obama. On Wednesday, four outlaws broke down the kitchen door of the 86-year-old woman. These are just people from around who think that Obama has been sending me a lot of money, she explained.

Candidate Barack Obama claims that he is in no way responsible for these attacks upon his grandmother, as he has NOT been sending her lots of money, as has been scurrilously reported. Obama’s claims seem to be true, as when the thieves found no money, they had to content themselves with removing the solar panels of Granny’s home as their only booty. Obama said that he is planning to demand Secret Service protection for his grandmother at her Kenyan village of Alego-Kogello,  which is but 37 miles from Kisumu, and also for the rest of his extended family in Kenya, Indonesia and Hawaii. 😉

Unlike as has happened with candidate Sarah Palin, so far, no one has charged that Obama is neglecting his family by running for president. After-all, Barack Obama is a man and Sarah Palin is woman.

Painting Pigs

September 11, 2008

Language is about communication and what language means is what it communicates to the audience. The media and spin-meisters want us to believe that Barack Obama’s “lipstick on a pig” phrase was an innocent slang phrase that meant nothing more than when John McCain had used the same expression in the past, or when Obama had too.

Nothing can be further from the truth. In the political weeks before the speech by Sarah Palin that resulted in her being nickname the “Lipstick Candidate,” whenever McCain or Obama used the “pig with lipstick” phrase it was said in passing, with no uproarious reaction from the audience.

However, immediately after the “Lipstick Candidate’s” convention speech, the Obama campaign began using the word “lipstick” in various allusions to Sarah Palin, the Republican’s female VP candidate. When Obama went over the line while criticizing the McCain campaign and threw out the slang phrase “lipstick on a pig,” the audience went wild.  It was clear to these Democrat listeners that he was leveling the “lipstick on a pig” insult at Governor Sarah Palin. Because we cannot know what was in Obama’s heart, we give him the benefit of the doubt, while we condemn his disrespectful and sexist Virginia audience. We are disappointed that Barack Obama did not immediately tell his audience that they were misinterpreting his words in the “pig” phrase. He had an opportunity to chide his audience, and he did not.

The real problem is that Obama’s words caused his hundreds of Virginia supporters to ridicule a woman as a pig. That is a fact. It is a fact too, that many of his supporters, especially on the Internet, are now using Barack Obama’s exact words to continue to ridicule a woman as a pig.  Here is a video of Obama’s original “Lipstick on a Pig” speech.

The Right Energy Plan

September 10, 2008

Which Candidate has the energy plan that will solve our problems for the future?

John McCain is calling for more oil drilling in this country. His VP choice, Alaskan Sarah Palin, says “drill, drill, drill.” Yet, if we find any new oil reserves they will fill only a fraction of our energy demands. John McCain’s plan is to continue to focus on a 19th century industry for the 21st century, and to continue chasing the world price of oil.

Barack Obama’s plan calls upon the federal government to throw $150 billion worth of taxpayers’s hard earned money as investments in new energy technologies. Yet, if history is any teacher, throwing federal funds at any problem never solves it.

How about instigating the marketplace to pay to innovate our energy technology? Allowing the price of energy to remain high will result in the marketplace of ideas solving our problem.  With the financial rewards offered by high oil prices, the nation’s thousands of innovators will be stimulated to develop thousands of new and green energy products.

We need these new “green” technologies to get Americans to change the way they use energy. What better way than to unleash the tremendous innovative power of this American nation instead of trying to solve it with the government and/or yesterday’s solutions.

See an interesting interview between ABC anchor Diane Sawyer and NY Times columnist and author Tom Friedman. Friedman prophesies in his newest book, “Hot, Flat and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution–and How It Can Renew America,” that energy technology will be the world-changing innovation of the 21st century. It will be called “The Green Revolution.”

Virginia’s Dangerous Macacas

September 10, 2008

What is the difference between a pit-bull with lipstick and a pig with lipstick? An election.

Since Governor Sarah Palin spoke at the Republican Convention, she has become known as the “lipstick candidate.” When is a double entendre about lipstick and a pig, really a sexist attack on a woman? Only Barack Obama knows for sure, as he has been gingerly using “lipstick” references ever since Palin’s speech. Lipstick on a Pit-bull or a Pig?

One thing we CAN say about Barack Obama – he’s NO “lipstick liberal.” Oh no! He puts his lipstick where his mouth is. Even though he got a laugh out of his Virginia audience, his out-of-control double entendre was no laughing matter to most of America, including many of Obama’s female supporters. Obama, while attempting to smear Sarah Palin’s lipstick in Virginia, forgot that Virginia is the land of “The Macaca Moment.”

Lipstick on a Pig?

September 9, 2008

One wonders why Barack Obama is running against the Republican Vice Presidential nominee. A few days ago Governor Sarah Palin jokingly compared herself with a pit-bull wearing lipstick. Since then, Barack Obama and his campaign have been using the word lipstick in various allusions to his female opponent. Today, Obama went over the line, and it is going to cost him dearly.

His supporters say he was describing the Republican’s new mantra of “change” when he made the “lipstick on a pig” comment. Perhaps he was, but his audience undoubtedly took the comment to be a double entendre referring to Sarah Palin as they uproariously laughed. It was quite stunning that Virginians would so disgracefully guffaw upon hearing an American woman governor described as a pig, but they did. Even if Senator Barack Obama did not intend to vulgarly insult his political opponent that way, Obama’s Virginia supporters were overjoyed that he was doing that, and he did not chide them. Sadly, Virginians are becoming as coarse and mean as the rest of the country, it seems.

I find it a bit difficult to give Obama the benefit of the doubt in his use of the “lipstick on a pig” comment. It is because Barack Obama is an urban guy. He has pretty much lived in metropolitan areas since he came to the United States from Indonesia some years ago. In normal slang, “You put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig” means dressing something up to appear to be something it is not. However, In urban slang “Lipstick on a Pig” has a much coarser meaning. It refers to ugly broads, when they put on a skirt and some lipstick and well, they still look like the same digusting pig.”

You can put lipstick on a pig,” said Obama, as he paused for the laugh lines. He never chastised his supporters for their laughter at his allusion to a woman as a pig. Without doubt the lipstick reference was meant for Sarah Palin. The audience knew it and Barack Obama knew it. And, sadly for the Obama campaign, the women of America knew it too.

Sad News for Obama

September 8, 2008

Poor Barack. He awakens this morning to find that he is being topped in the polls by that Old Man McCain and an “inexperienced” American Girl Governor from the hinterland of Moosehaven. But even worse for poor Barack, he has lost two of his best cheerleaders in the mainstream media.

NBC has finally decided to try and save MSNBC from going down the tubes by dumping Obama cheerleaders Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann, according to today’s Washington Post. The next step for NBC, if it is REALLY SERIOUS, is to dump MSNBC. It is a disgrace to journalism.

Be Afraid

Be very afraid, Democrats. Annie Oakley rides again.

Did you hear? She said “We need to drill, drill, drill.”
