Obayhma.

I thought I could be the first to write that, but I'm not. Still, I'm writing it anyway. It's the Brangelina form of naming a couple. But everyone does it, and it's hard to be first.

McRomaine.



Am I first with that?

It's not a fast-food salad.

It's:

That photo looks like Romney just told McCain the guy next to him farted.

This may taking too much liberty with the idea, but how about:

Obambi

I'm noticing lately that the McCain campaign's having a lot more fun and laughing more / not taking themselves too seriously. Did it start with that "the One" commercial? By contrast, the overblown self-serious reactions to McCain's recent commercials by Obama's campaign are remarkable. On the one hand, what can one expect? On the other, the O campaign risks becoming like all the other unsuccessful Democrat campaigns: finger-wagging scolds. Remember Clinton always delivered with a smile, kept his humor. So did Bush, Reagan, etc.

If you ask me, there are far worse predictors of "what a winner looks like". Who's campaign's in turmoil now, I wonder?

(1) Janis said, “Lord, won’t Obayhma Mercedes Benz.”

(2) McRomaine sounds like Mick Romaine, Private Eye.

(3) If you squint at that lettuce and use your imagination you can see the Apparition of the Angel Moroni.

(4) Mitt Romney said, “Hey John, watch me ask this guy to pull my finger.”

Recently heard on a popular TV show -

C. Matthews: "So Senator, what is your current policy on [fill in the blank]?"

B.H. Obama: "Well, Chris, I'm glad you asked that question because I want to assure the American people, and the German people, and the [fill in the blank] people that I feel strongly both ways, and my [non-existent] record is clear on this issue. I have stood firm [since yesterday] and will continue to do so. And Hope and Change."

C. Matthews: [shiver]

Flip Flops

McCain 1

Obama 2,335,967 and counting

Just you wait until he picks Charlie Crist.

McCrist!

The unholy alliance between fast food and Jesus. It's the ultimate red flag to liberals.

Yay.

Cheers,

Exclusive to Althouse Blogspot! (Cue flashing lights and sirens.) Meade predicts:

- August 15, 2008: Hillary files for divorce. Grounds: the cruelty of Bill's pervasive and obvious-to-everyone-but-himself racism

- Sept. 3, 2008: In a GOP convention stunner, McCain taps Hillary as his VP.
Bumper sticker: McCainary '08

- November 2016: In historically overwhelming landslide victory over perennial Democratic losing candidate Dennis Kucinich, incumbent Republican 45th U.S.President Hillary "Little Maggie Thatcher" Rodham elected to 2nd term.

Mitt is absolutely the worst.

No principles at all.

This would be the worst decision for Mccain. Romney won't help him in the south. He needs someone from the south. Some good old social conversative who hates gays. That would help.

Also, doesn't Mccain hate him? He sure did in the primaries.

I just love the way the guy from Florida uses a down-home name like "Charlie" to humanize the fact that he is, in fact, the Christ.

Imagine if Charlie Christ was running against the Obama-Messiah. Now that would be a contest of biblical proportions!


(p.s. I know Charlie's surname doesn't have an "H" in it; but it damned well should!)

I posted the following on the first Bayh thread, not realizing there were two more already! So maybe this is a better spot for it:

I undercounted. We've had a "legacy" on the ballot one more time than I calculated.

1980 - Bush
1984 - Bush
1988 - Bush
1992 - Bush, Gore
1996 - Gore
2000 - Gore, Bush
2004 - Bush (plus John "Do You Know Who I Am? Kerry was sort of an honorary legacy. but I won't count him.)

So, from 1980 - 2004, there were 28 possible slots to stand for national election. The son of a senator or president occupied nine of them, or 32 percent. If Bayh and Mitt Romney are the VP nominees this time around, the percentage will have jumped to 37 percent over the course of eight elections.

Not added to the total are primary campaigns by the likes of Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Dole, each of whom was rated as a favorite or co-favorite at the outset.

Maybe it seems like just a coincidence, but maybe it's not. Maybe we're approaching a tipping point toward political oligarchy in which certain wealthy, connected families retain a skilled and expensive team of political advisers, supporters and technicians that are passed off to the next family member in the succession. It's a pretty serious advantage for otherwise undistinguished would-be leaders.

The nominations of Bayh and/or Romney won't by themselves turn us into a banana republic, but it's a step down that road.

The new McCain DLT, delivered in a two-compartment styrofoam box.

The meaty conservatism on one side stays hot, while the liberal Romaine lettuce and tomato stays cool on the other.

Charlie Christ is a closeted mo. He cannot pick him.

You know he has some tea room trading in his background.

We need a Strom Thurmond or Jesse Helms to complete the ticket.

How about Hailey Barber?

The Mississippi governor would be perfect.

Bissage said...

Yet another triumph from blake!

Funny though, that announcer's sort-of-but-not-really-black voice reminds me of someone . . . but . . . I'm not quite sure who, exactly.

Oh well, whoever he is, I'm sure he transcends race.

Heh.

veni vidi vici said...

Regarding Hailey Barber [sic], I agree he'd be perfect.

In addition to his Mississippi southern conservative credibility, he'll pull in teh gheys because (a) he has a woman's first name, and (b) his surname has that hairdresser thing going on.

Besides, The Charlie (or would you prefer I call him "Christ" instead?) has a shock of white hair at least as colorless as McCain's, which would too-much cement that "old guys ticket" meme that the Obama camp is desperate to make stick on McCain.

McMittney! That's the team for me!

Well he couldn't very well call himself Chuck Crist now could he?

The blog posts are meant to provoke and seduce.

Christopher, good luck on your interview, tomorrow !

No principles at all.

Yeah, right. That's the single most noticeable characteristic of Mormons: they have no principles.

LOL. Best part? Rhymes with chicanery.

No, Titus is right. Even if Charlie Crist isn't a 'mo, in his arcane phrase, he gives off huge 'mo vibes.

I realise he was QB in college, and there are very many Southern men who are elegant and distinguished to the point of being nearly hateable by other men -- precisely what Crist is.

But seriously, he is more effete than even Obama.

Crist doesn't add anything to the campaign, despite his Southernism. Florida is already in the bag for McCain anyway.

PALIN PALIN PALIN.

I am actually offering up novenas for McCain to choose her.

PLEASEEEEEEEE.

QB... "Queer Boy"???

"...and there are very many Southern men who are elegant and distinguished to the point of being nearly hateable by other men -- precisely what CHrist is."

Yes, just ask all the inflamed flag-burners in the streets of the mid-east about Christ-hating...
