"I'm heading to Capitol Hill soon to deliver my third State of the Union address."

"Before I go, I want to say thanks for everything you're doing.... Barack."

Email, just received. Nice to know the President appreciates whatever it is I'm doing.

He is such a vessel.

shiloh said...

Obama is forever grateful Althouse for your continuing support. Plus he's very polite, much like Newt.

ok, a defelction, my bad! :)

Ex-Dissident said...

You voted for that dummy. I hope you've wizened since.

Crunchy Frog said...

What is it exactly that you're doing?

Coketown said...

He gets the same rebuke I offer my mom when she sends short emails like this:

"This is fine for a status update, but not for something cluttering my inbox. Send money. I love you."

Bob Ellison said...

I got the same email. Today I cleaned up dog poop. I didn't expect anyone to thank me for it. You're welcome, Mr. President. You're welcome in spades. Up to here, and I'm holding my hand up near my eyebrows.

Can you imagine the energy it takes to craft the crap and bullshit that will be served up tonight?

Pre-speech translation:

I have left an enormous bag of flaming dog shit on your front porch. To be fair, the bag was the biodegradable type and the dog ate nothing but organic food. The bad news? Future bags of flaming dog shit may be smaller if rich folks don't pay me more money.

Aren't I wonderful? Of course I am. You may applaud now.

You bet your bippy it never ends.

Have you downloaded his singing ringtone yet?

"I'm so in love with you"-- Barack

SOTU has turned into a night where everyone brings a real live prop. I wonder if Uncle Sam could get one of the TV networks to fork over big bucks for the rights to telecast it? Because SOTU seems like just another crappy reality show. Or is it our reality that has become crappy?

I really enjoyed the bit this morning about having everyone on the Republican side wear buttons with 1,000 on them and also wearing either golf pants or their most outrageous golf outfit. Short pants especially welcome. And do a whole orchestrated Alinsky number in a way that cannot be ignored.

I would watch that.

MayBee said...

I would like it if a rep from Minnesota brought Lars' blow up doll girlfriend.

Well, I hear his SOTU is full of income inequality and tax unfairness and so on memes. Obama and his handlers are geniuses. They knew Romney would be a prime contender and they started the OWS and started banging on the unfairness drum. Enough to make Romney self-conscious if not ashamed of his own hard earned self made wealth. Unbelievable.

Like Rove said (I don't usually listen to this guy but).. why didn't Obama repeal the Bush tax cut for the rich when he had both houses of congress? I like this other thing Rove said too -- why does not Buffett give his secretary some stock options so she can also pay the 15%?

HT said...

Ann, I just know you will be so heartened to know that on NPR just a few minutes ago, the news reader referred to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate as the democrat-controlled Judiciary Committee.

Rush-speak has won at NPR.

Go celebrate.

Your Best Bud Barack

BFF Barack

Hey, he should send out halves of those Best Friends necklaces people wore in grade school.

Ben G. said...

I'm with drozz - eyeballing the Flyers game rather than put my liver through what punishment watching the SOTU would require. I can handle my team losing a game, watching this jug eared clown is unbearable.

bgates said...

I interpreted that as him looking into the mirror and saying,
Before I go, I want to say, "Thanks for everything you're doing, Barack."

MayBee said...

Here you go, Althouse!

The ringtone is free.

edutcher said...

I'll bet you don't get to call him Barack once he gets your money and your vote.

And I'll bet Mr. President isn't want he'll expect, either

Ben G. said...

Woot! Goal Philly! Under review though.

MayBee said...

I'm actually a little depressed right now, thinking of the person who would either download that ringtone or be happy to receive that email.
How lonely would you have to be?

What you are doing is being stroked. Doesn't that make you feel good and in turn feel good about your stroker? You're in this with him; you're appreciated.

Rusty said...

What the hell ARE you doing, Ann?

Bender said...

I wonder what an Obama STFU is like?

For the last four years or so, I've not been able to sit and listen to more than a minute or two of any of his speeches.

pm317 said...

No SOTU thread? Is Althouse punishing the 'boyfriend Obama'? Maybe she didn't take the hint from his email.

HT said...

Goodness, who can watch those things? Who can watch the debates and why? Maybe for the car wreck quality, but still. What a waste of time.

Danno said...

Only thing I can say is he makes Jimmy Carter look competent.

Ben G. said...

Huzza! Flyers win in a shoot-out! Go BOB!! Is SCOMF still blabbering?

EMD said...

"Before I go, I want to say thanks for everything you're doing.... Barack."

if he only knew.
