Go over and hit Andrea's tip jar, or Sparky here gets it.

Okay, so I’m not really gonna hurt Sparky here.  But still, it’s for a good cause and all.  And not to shame y’all into action or anything, but my dog Charlie M. has just pledged this week’s pig ear allowance – and how would it feel to be outdone by a mutt?  Hmmmmmm????

A Degree in Obamology


What does a degree in Obamology consist of?  Well, according to the representatives of Hardfart University over at The Peoples’ Cube,

Our Department has created a curriculum out of thin air and in a big hurry, enabling persons with some loose $100,000 to spend it on an undergraduate degree in the exciting new field of Obamology (the study of Obama.) Qualified candidates (i.e. those with extra $100,000) successfully completing 30 credit hours will obtain a B.O. degree (Bachelor of Obamology), which will not lead to a career or paying job or any such corporate entrapment, but it will help make you feel as if you are serving the community while you’re hanging around on the street corner.

A few highlights:

111 – Hope and Change: A Path to Greatness
Dr. Axelrod 3 credits

How Obama discovered Hope. How Obama invented Change. How he married them together. Why Obama’s concept of Hope is so cool because it means you don’t actually have to do anything but sit around waiting for something good to happen to you. Why Obama’s concept of Change is so cool because you can project any meaning you want onto that and you would be right. Why these two concepts together are so cool because it means you will be able to sit around in your room after graduation eating Twinkies and watching TV and waiting for Hope and Change to make your life better.

138 – Obama and Racism
Ms. Michelle Amabo credits to each according to his need

Why disagreeing with Obama is racist. Why insinuating Obama is not qualified to do brain surgery on you is racist. Why things we don’t normally think of as racist become racist when doing them gets in Obama’s way. Why racism trumps sexism. Why, whenever Obama practices sexism, it is not sexism – and it’s racist to think it is. Why and when the words “circular reasoning” are racist.

308 — Victimology
Dr. Winfrey easy credit

The student will learn how to turn ordinary folks with temporary crises or those who have made bad decisions, into victims. Why victims are good for the legend of Obama. Why helping anybody hurts progress unless it’s performed by specially trained government officials and, in some cases, authorized celebrities. How Obama’s wife can be both celebrity and victim at the same time. Why logic is a hindrance in these matters. Why television is not called the “boob tube” for nothing. Why true self-esteem is the politician’s enemy, and what to do about it.

Gibson-Palin, Gibson-Obama: Side-by-side


Just a few notes, further to Angus Dei’s post on the Gibson-Palin interview.

The Anchoress finds this excellent comparison of Charlie Gibson’s Palin interview vs. his Obama interview…  on a Hillary Clinton forum, of all places.  Remember, one of these interviewees is running for President, the other for Vice President…

Obama interview:

  • How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?
  • How does it feel to “win”?
  • How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling?
  • Who will be your VP?
  • Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
  • Will you accept public finance?
  • What issues is your campaign about?
  • Will you visit Iraq?
  • Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
  • What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

Palin interview:

  • Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking? Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
  • Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
  • Questions about foreign policy:
  • -territorial integrity of Georgia
  • -allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
  • -NATO treaty
  • -Iranian nuclear threat
  • -what to do if Israel attacks Iran
  • -Al Qaeda motivations
  • -the Bush Doctrine
  • -attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
  • Is America fighting a holy war? [misquoted Palin]

…and The Anchoress is only warming up!  Go grab yourself a cuppa tea (or a Guinness, depending on your time zone) and read her whole exhaustive round-up here.

P.S.  She has a tip jar.  For if you feel like shouting her a Guinness after all that.   Just sayin’, is all. 😉

ABC “News” Does Partisan Hack-Job Editing of Palin Interview


Anybody watch the ABC News Propaganda interview of Sarah Palin by Charles Gibson? I tried, but The Gibtard’s sleazy condescension turned me off after, oh, about a minute and a half. Many who did suffer through Gibson’s supercilious “interview” of Governor Palin remarked at how rough and amateurish the herky-jerky video edit job was, though, and now I know why: The editing was a transparently partisan hack-job designed to put Gov. Palin in the worst possible light.

“A transcript of the unedited interview of Sarah Palin by Charles Gibson clearly shows that ABC News edited out crucial portions of the interview that showed Palin as knowledgeable or presented her answers out of context.”

I wish I could say that I’m surprised, but I’m not. Let’s get this straight: The Paleo-Media are not biased, the Paleo-Media are partisan leftists, and are nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat party.
