It's gonna be a loooooong 4 years. Thank goodness I have TIVO. It's already hardly bearable to watch the news now..Obama all the time 24/7. At least were aren't forced to watch the telescreen ......yet.

BTW: Red State/Blue State is not a myth. Come out to my part of Red State California and try that crap.....bimbo.

If only they were brains.

Quayle said...

I wonder how Michelle is gonna like these chicks slobbering all over her man.

commenter said...

There is nothing new.

i have decided not to watch the inauguration at the local grocery store. More interesting will be a trip to the Kinsey Institute Gallery tomorrow. Until the 23rd is an exhibit:

Sex and Presidential Politics
materials from the entire latter half of the 20th century.
(the materials help scholars and researchers explore all factors and forces that help shape US Electoral politics.

It's supposed to be humorus and artistic, too.

Bissage said...

Chick's got nice teeth.

Bissage said...

BTW, that's Ashley Dupré, right?

AJ Lynch said...

Chaeyl Crow? If so she is looking good. Did she have some work done?

AJ Lynch said...

DBQ said:

"OMFG".

LOL. I never saw anyone say that before now!

EDH said...

I noticed they included arachnids, under "invertebrates."

garage mahal said...

Maybe, but it's the thought that counts. Thank You Obama Girl.

AJ Lynch said...

Oh the Obama girl. Explains why Cheryl Crow looks so good.

Rick Lee said...

I enjoyed that a lot more than I thought I was going to.

ricpic said...

She has a nice top shelf.

Eli Blake said...

Remember when y'all were going after John Edwards' "two Americas" speech? The 'stock answer' was "I don't see two Americas, I see one."

So now that Obama is preaching unity--- well, some people are never happy except when they have a gripe.

Quayle:

Well, she does have Hillary Clinton now in the 'inner circle,' she can get some "learn from my mistakes" type of motherly wisdom.

MadisonMan said...

Eh.

I have a ton of work to do tomorrow. So I'll miss the inauguration. It's great to have an excuse.

Ron said...

Plastic and fakey. Obama girl too.

That is perhaps the most disingenuous thing I've read from you here yet, Eli. Why don't you go back over some of the things you and your ilk have said over the years and get back to me?
e pluribus unum has always been with us thank you and it isn't going to come about tomorrow because you said so--sheesh!

author, etc. said...

I liked it. Sue me, I guess.

Chip Ahoy said...

Didn't watch, and you can't make me.

La la la.

See, the thing about myth-building is it relies heavily on ignorance. Therefore, I'll let you do the watching. Your many jabs and japes are far more interesting and amusing.

Pogo said...

More Tiger beat stuff.

Do Democrats write
Mrs. Obama
Mrs. B. Obama
Mrs. Barack Obama
Mrs. Chris Matthews Obama

in curvaceous script over and over again on their notebooks like a Freshman girl?

chuck b. said...

It's starting to feel like a never ending Christmas.

Lem said...

Can't watch from work.

The filter prob views it as soft porn... and of course I need to concentrate.

reader_iam said...

I hate that vocal-distortion special effect there sooooo much. Had to stop listening before I heard much of anything; any message was being drowned out anyway by the sheer, spine-curling effect of that sound!

Meade said...

I'm with reader and Chip - couldn't get past the :55 mark.

Maybe it's the use of tired metaphors with not even a potential reflection in actual policy that's being objected to.

Pogo said...

Isn't he dreamy?

My wife was talking with a friend of hers, a grade school teacher who was terribly excited about how wonderful it was all going to be and gushed And he's just so handsome!.

My wife cut her short and said Listen to you. You're 50 years old for God's sake.

For a minute our friend let us in on what it's like among schoolteachers, where it's all harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding; no more falsehoods or derisions, golden living dreams of visions, mystic crystal revelation, and the mind's true liberation.

AJ Lynch said...

Sweet! She'd get a position in my Cabinet!

AJ Lynch said...

Pogo:

I bet public schoolteachers are hoping their govt money tree gets watered bigtime for the next 4-8 years.

Joe said...

There's a joke in there somewhere about the artificiality of her breasts and Obama. Too bad Chris Rock is taking a pass. (On the other hand, that's good since I would prefer the joke actually be funny.)

Dust Bunny Queen said...

He sounds like a Death Knight /wink.

Which explains why our children know diddly doo squat when they graduate from public school. Home schooling FTW.

This is the dawning of the Age of how queer he is
The Age of how queer he is
How queer he is! How queer he is!

Pardon the pun :)

Original George said...

Is this video a joke?

Is it?

AJ Lynch said...

It would be a choice position too Garage!

David said...

The girl is cute, sexy with out being sleazy. Nice smile. I'll bet she voted in the general election.

"Plastic . . . fake . . . bimbo . . . barf . . . artificial."

Ah, sour grapes. Girl's gotta make a living, right? She's fun--has a nice energy.

To chickenlittle, who thinks the boobs are fake: there are actually women who look like that, and who are perfectly nice and genuine people.

God Bless America. God Bless Obama. God Bless Obama Girl. And God Bless Althouse.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

I'll bet she voted in the general election.

DUH

David said...

Dust Bunny: Are you feeling superior or inferior to Obama Girl when you call her a bimbo. Or can’t you tell?

Here are some definitions of bimbo:

A woman regarded as vacuous or as having an exaggerated interest in her sexual appeal.

a term that emerged in popular English language usage in the early 20th Century to describe an often attractive, yet unintelligent woman. The usage of this term began in the United States as early as 1919. The 1929 silent film Desert Nights describes a cheap female crook as a bimbo

a young woman indulged by rich and powerful older men

a very stupid woman; an airhead


I suppose on scant evidence I could say that you, Dustbunny, qualify as a bimbo under some of those definitions. That would be a guess and an insult though, just as your characterization of the young lady is.

chickenlittle said...

David: It seems to me that OG qualifies under definition 1.

DBQ, based on what I've read of her here, doesn't fit any of your definitions.

What was you point anyway?

DBrooks17 said...

The completely unrealistic expectations that so many seem to have thrust upon Obama are going to prove nearly as big a problem for him as the actual demands of the job. He, and his campaign, encouraged and abetted these expectations, and it's not unreasonable to see a possible future where they will prove to be his undoing. When the economy worsens significantly(and it will), when he doesn't heal the afflicted, sight the sightless, feed the hungry, end the war, close Guantanamo, convict members of the Bush Administration, pay the rent, and so on, he's going to have some very, very disappointed folks on his hands. Wiser, more mature folks, perhaps, but disappointed, and angry people. And, in spite of the best efforts of the media and those around Obama to continue to blame Bush for it all, they aren't going to have Bush to blame anymore. At some point, people are going to say, "Gosh, Bush has been out of office a long time, and things still stink. In fact, lots of things are worse. What's up with that?" At that point, political and governing reality is going to raise its ugly head---and questions are going to be asked for which this group will have no easy answers. It will be President Obama, and he'll have all the responsibility and blame. To paraphrase, hell has no fury like the politically naive scorned.

Synova said...

You know, I can see it coming. Just like after Bush won election and everyone who didn't vote for him seemed to think that because the election was so close that he should do everything to their preferences and forget those who did vote for him.

It's cool to wave the flag again.

It's so very cool to be bipartisan again... no red state or blue state... cool to be American. Not before, but now it is.

Whoever made anyone stop waving the flag? Whoever decided that it wasn't cool to be American? To *whom* was it more important to make so very sure no one thought they might possibly *not* hate Bush with every fiber of their BushHilter hating being that it was worth not promoting their country?

*pant* Oh... ooohhhh... I don't have to tell people I'm Canadian anymore!!! Oh, fabrous joy! Oh, spontaneous Orgasm!

And no thought, no clue, no conception that *now* there are still just slightly under half of voters who did NOT vote for their guy, who do not think that "liberal" policies are the same thing as "bipartisan" policies. Who disagree and will disagree *because* they disagree.

I don't think that "we" are going to stop waving the flag, though, or start claiming to be Canadian.

I suppose that's a difference.

The Crack Emcee said...

"I'll bet she voted in the general election."

Wrong: Obama Girl's too stupid to vote.

Eli Blake,

"Now that Obama is preaching unity--- well, some people are never happy except when they have a gripe."

After 8 years of the ugliest partisan nonsense most of us political watchers have ever seen, Democrats should just shut up and enjoy this party the rest of us didn't asked to be invited to, because every word out of your mouths, at this point, can't help but sound like the most hypocritical B.S. in history:

We should all pull together? What about you guys over the last 8 years?

We should root for the president to do well? What about you guys over the last 8 years?

And so on. Just be quiet - you've earned it.

Pogo,

"For a minute our friend let us in on what it's like among schoolteachers, where it's all harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding; no more falsehoods or derisions, golden living dreams of visions, mystic crystal revelation, and the mind's true liberation."

By now you must know my thing, so you're teasing me, right?

Ann Althouse said...

"I hate that vocal-distortion special effect there sooooo much..."

I did too, but I think it was a cool idea to use it to impose the melody into the speech, which they kind of managed to do. It's just that the result sounds pretty ugly.

The Crack Emcee said...

DBrooks17,

"Political and governing reality is going to raise its ugly head---and questions are going to be asked for which this group will have no easy answers. It will be President Obama, and he'll have all the responsibility and blame. To paraphrase, hell has no fury like the politically naive scorned."

Oh, there are easy answers and I can't wait until that can of worms is opened.

David said...

My point is that we gleefully criticize the mainstream media for ignorance and bias. Then we show no hesitation in branding a woman we know virtually nothing about as a fake, a bimbo, stupid, etc. because she is good looking and trying to get a little career mileage out of some silly and lighthearted videos.

At least you said "her boobs look fake" rather than that they "are" fake. And yes I understand that by wearing skimpy outfits she opens her boobs to comment and speculation. But why take the bait?

As to OG being a bimbo under #1, certainly you have no way of knowing that she is vacuous. All you know is that she plays someone who is dazzled by Obama on a video. As to having an "exaggerated interest in her sexual appeal," how do you know that? All you know is that she has sexual appeal and uses it to play a young woman smitten by Obama.

As to Dust Bunny, my point was that I would have no justification in calling her (for example) stupid, even though she said something I found prejudiced and unfair. Nor does DB have any basis to use the b word.

It's just a pretty girl, people. Lighten up.

Synova said...

I'm not entirely convinced that her intent isn't clever satire.

Or at the very least, a bit of poking fun at what she's doing while she does it. I mean... she starts out with saying Obama had promised something and he says "No, I didn't."

There were a couple of parts later that made me suspect it, also.

David said...

Crack: "Wrong: Obama Girl's too stupid to vote."

No, you are wrong. That article you reference is about her not voting in the primary. I will refrain from calling you stupid because you did not distinguish between the primary and the general election.

Is chivalry truly dead on this site? Will no one else defend this fair maiden?

David said...

Synova, yes, satire. Someone gets it. Not great satire to be sure but worthy of a laugh or three. If we could get out of the censorious mire.

Meade said...

Synova said "... Oh, fabrous joy! Oh, spontaneous Orgasm!"

Synova, Bruce Hayden. Bruce Hayden, Synova.

Obama Girl Amber Lee Ettinger is from Pennsylvania.

Yet she clings to Obama more than to her guns or Bible.

She was Miss Howard Stern TV in June 2007.

They need to do a gay(er) version of this with an Obama Boy. We have a few on here who need to make their own video.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

David: Bimbo according to definition number 1 and probably number 3 as well, judging by the boob remarks. :-D She probably voted for Obama in the election even if she couldn't be bothered in the Primary.

I'm mostly ashamed and embarrassed by the video.

The President of the United States, even Obama whom I do not even remotely like, deserves to be treated with respect and dignity, as the office warrants. I'm embarrassed and ashamed that this twit is throwing herself like some slutty bar rag at the President for her own self aggrandizement. In some circles that would be called whoring.

I'm embarrassed and ashamed that the talking heads in the liberal media and the so called journalists act like they have what I have heard elsewhere a "slobbering love affair" with Obama. They have lost all objectivity and what little shreds of professionalism that they may have had to begin with. (which isn't much)

I'm embarrassed and afraid that we have lost our freaking sanity as a nation when we treat the person who is the Commander in Chief and who holds our lives and security in his hand, as some sort of stud muffin heavenly saviour when we don't know hardly anything about him. How superficial and how shallow can we be? Very evidently.

And by the way. There is no such thing as bipartisan. All that Red State/Blue State kumbaya is a pipe dream.

garage mahal said...

I bet you're a real hit at parties DBQ.

PatCA said...

It's kind of cute--refreshing after two long months of gushing.

Methadras said...

Bimbo or not. Well, you get the idea. Thank you.

David said...

Queen, Your Majesty, I repeat: It's just a pretty girl. Lighten up.

As to shallowness, I don't think it was intended to have much depth.

But if you wanted to, I suppose you could say that Obama Girl is the symbol of the American Public, in love with Obama and giddy over his novelty and attractiveness and looking somewhat foolish in the process.

You could also conclude that when Obama Girl says to the President Elect "you promised" and he says "No, I didn't" we are being shown a brilliant archetype of modern American politics.

And you could puzzle about what Obama Girl/American Public is getting into when she agrees to "just one" and why she/we would be happy with a tiny morsel, just a single song, when so many promises were made and now he denies them.

But, as I said, it's really just a silly video with a pretty girl. No more meaning. Nothing else to see.

David said...

"Obama Girl Amber Lee Ettinger is from Pennsylvania."

Must be why I like her. I'm from Pennsylvania (originally) too.

Hitchens on why Bush really was the best choice over Gore and Kerry!

Now we know why Andrew Sullivan did not give Hitch any tongue!

AnechoicRoom said...

Fifty seconds (I know, shoulda been less). All I could take. And thank G*d I never encountered fake gazoobies in the boudoir [kinda makes my agnosticism seem a little cynical don't it? (Though should not be misconstrued for/as an attempt to verify the authenticity of those in video, purported to be of the artificial variety)].

We now return control of your (libwuhl) Googetube to you.

Obama’s Women Sluttier Than Bush’s Women

Blue women vs. Red women

Alex said...

Starting today I raise my black flag in protest of the Cult of Obama aka The Coup of the Motherfucking Media(thanks LGF). I am no longer proud to be an American. I am deeply ashamed of this country that welcomed my family as immigrants 30 years ago with the promise of freedom and opportunity. This country just turned its back on me and I flip it the bird.

Timekeeper said...

Eeew, not a mental image I needed.

commenter said...

obama,

I hope when your daughters turn 18 and want to shake their booties (which eventually at one moment in time or another we are wont to do) that this does not come back to haunt you.

Good luck with keeping your family, as well as the nation. The one thing will be harder than the other. I have 77 collective years experience in this kind of thing.
