Yes, amazingly that song is my first association to Julia too.

This is setting up to be the funniest presidential campaign ever!

She sounds like the caveman dude. Living off of productivity of others.

She's the perfect little worker bee. All she needs is the collar round her neck to keep her from listening to those eeeevilll Republicans.

I'm wondering who gets to play Galt, the Master Thrall - Zero, Joe, or Sibelius?

Hey, maybe it's Big Sis.

Welcome to the real War on Women.

PS I note they triumphantly tell us Julia will live off Social Security when she's old. According to the Trustees' Report, she won't be living past 2033 and her medical care will end in 4 years.

Matthew Sablan said...

Someone else pointed me to another inconvenient Julia.

Freeman Hunt said...

This is good because we women are weak and hysterical. We need a strong guiding hand, like that of Barack Obama through his governmental programs, to keep us right in life.

I don't know nothin' 'bout makin' no money and payin' no bills!

Freeman Hunt said...

Slightly off topic: Anyone else tired of that graphic style? Everything looks like that now, like all life has been distilled into clean, synthetic product. I'm ready for the world to break out into ornate realism or some such other thing.

When does 'Julia' become the dog that Obama ate?

EDH said...

I'm get the feeling that the release of Obama's "love" letters wasn't a complete happenstance.

bagoh20 said...

Think how clueless it would be if it was the life of a male depicted that way.

I know Freeman does, but are any leftie ladies getting this message for what it really says about you?

pm317 said...

'Julia' coinciding with Maraniss' digging on Obama's girlfriends, real and composite.. opportunity made in heaven.

gerry said...

Is she a bitch?

Curious George said...

Julia. Slut.

Amartel said...

Surprise, Progressive ladies, you have been reduced to a composite of dependence.

Progressive ladies: I love you.
Obama: Thank you.

Amartel said...

Matthew Sablan at 2:54: Good call!

damikesc said...

Actually, I have a question for the professor.

As a feminist --- do you find these kinds of ads insulting? Basically implying that women need somebody to help them make their way in the world?

You don't see this ad campaign targeting men after all.

Isn't it extremely condescending?

Fen said...

Lillia Luciano is the 3rd libtard bitch to be fired for falsely editing the Zimmerman tapes.

Tar and feathers (litteraly) in the public square. A quick death is too good for this cunt.

Are we really about to have a campaign composed of straw man/woman issues all the way to November?

That is on top of outright lying distortions, such as the labeling of Zimmerman and editing his words.

If so, bring back voter qualification tests, photo ID, and proof of citizenship.

Sorry about the double post ... I changed the comment a bit when I had to re-do the word verification because it said I got it wrong. Then it posted both comments. WTF?

I blame Bush. And Julia.

I especially like how Julia somehow has her entire life subsidized while her small business pays lower taxes.

The Magical State! Everyone gets stuff; nobody pays!

Original Mike said...

Julia first appears in Nineteen Eighty-Four at the age of 26, an enthusiastic participant in the ‘Two Minutes of Hate’ directed against Emmanuel Goldstein, a Party co-founder who claims the Revolution was betrayed.

Carl Vero said...

At the White House Correspondents' Dinner Obama joked about eating dogs and hockey moms. Now he is painting a pretty picture of a kind king who has created a comely house for just about everyone. And it's no joke.
“Said a gracious wolf to a simple sheep; Will you not honor our house with a visit?
And the sheep answered; We would have been honored to visit your house if it were not in your stomach.” (Kahlil Gibran: Sand and Foam)

Go fuck yourself, little Libtard weasel.

I hope your wife/daughter/sister is gangraped in the name of "Justice for Trayvon", you fucking racist hypocrite.

bagoh20 said...

I think Obama The Boyfriend is shooting for Obama The Sheik this time.

Quayle said...

The left culture warriors having successfully feminized everything else around us, the government is now made to assume the role of the virile male who will provide and protect.

And the Goebbels lie is that Romney, the guy that has always been there providing and protecting, is cast as heartless and weak.

Maybe Obama's slogan should be "Let us be your Romney."

Icepick said...

If so, bring back [snip] qualification tests, photo ID, and proof of citizenship.

You mean for the voters or the candidates?

Comanche Voter said...

If you want some meaningless babble, go read excerpts from the Bamster's "love letters" to one of his "compressed" white girl friends. Now that's world class meaningless babble from a world class BS artist. Not terribly coherent, but if the girl was not particularly bright, it might impress her.

I notice Julia doesn't get out of college 'til she's 25. Why? Change Majors much?

Fucking bitch deserves to be gangraped and then set on fire.

Can't for the life of me figure why the GOP struggles with women!

How about "Romneyless and Reamus, founders of the New Rome"?

Icepick said...

Yes, because none of you lefties ahve ever had harsh words for Republican women.

AllieOop said...

Nick, Fen is a wife abuser. His comments are not at all surprising.

chickenlittle said...

I guess "Uncle Reamus" would be considered racist, huh?

Alex said...

Fen's account has been hijacked. Come on Allie you should know better.

Freeman Hunt said...

Does this need an Obama the sugar daddy tag?

Chip Ahoy said...

This is like the fifth time I pursued a link that turns out to be an Obama link and right off the bat, immediately, before anything, no reading until I provide my email address and each time I say fuck you really hard.

I'll find out what you're on about without giving you my email you asshole.

David said...

Everyone is missing the scary part.

Julia goes from age 3 to age 67 and Obama is still President. Sixty-four years in the presidency is a very long time, even if he's able to eliminate the two term limit.

Or maybe he's going to set up a dictatorship.

A benevolent dictatorship, of course.

Patrick said...

Christ, Fen.

No one deserves that. I don't even know who you're talking about, but no one deserves that. That is Moby material.

AllieOop said...

Alex, OK, you got me, Fen is my sockpuppet.

Patrick said...

I think I'll go back to "Julia" songs. Sheesh.

I would like to hear anyone here defend the Julia character. What positive spin can be put on it?

LarryK said...

One more musical "Julia" - since David S. didn't post this one, his last name must not be "Surkamp," the vocalist on this little ditty. David Surkamp used to be the go-to singer when Geddy Lee's voice was just too deep..

At least, Julia does not fall victim to the dreaded obesity epidemic in America.

AJ, that angle must have been scripted by FLOTUS.

bagoh20 said...

"I would like to hear anyone here sell the Julia character. What positive spin can be put on it?"

She won't be competing with your kids in the real world where opportunity and risk taking lead to greatness.

And, someone needs to run the DMVs.

That's the best I can do. She's gonna be a drain no matter what, and probably bitching about it the whole time.

Freeman Hunt said...

Why did Julia have to pay for tampons? I think it was because of patriarchal oppression.

AJ Lynch said...

Fen - I read the news about Luciano. Even knowing how uninformed and biased MSM dweebs are, it is hard to fathom that we knopw know of at least three instances where they marched in lockstep to the librul drummer and the three instances were unconnected- they did it separately!

And I have to assume they had no care about the potential consequences on Zimmerman.

yashu said...

(Fen, I don't know why you would want to outMaher Maher and outBernhard Bernhard etc. when it comes to using the most vile rhetoric you can think of against a female political antagonist. What's the point? How does that help? Especially since I agree with you that that woman has done something vile (doctored the Zimmerman tape)-- why make *her*, the perpetrator, into a victim, by means of your language?)

That Julia thing is so mockworthy. As Yuval Levin aptly puts it, "Life of Julia" is "like Portlandia earnestly offered up as drama."

AJ Lynch said...

CL:

Sorta OT but did you see that govt [Interior Dept maybe] RFP for a hot dog vendor and part of the RFP asked the applicants to say how they would support the First Lady's obesity war?

garage mahal said...

I think we've finally reached Peak Wingnut.

Darrell said...

Insurance companies should be made to give woemn free tampons. It's really not a monthly visit from her aunt, you know. Why shouldn't the healthcare fatcats do the right thing? Shit like that adds up. I bet Obama/DNC donations would soar if women had their money back.

Garage, yup.

Very good insight into the mind of Fen. To say he would kill someone if he had nothing to live for.

Fen said;
"If I had nothing to live for, she would be the first target."

5/3/12 3:55 PM

That statement and his wishes for someone's wife and daughter or sister to be gang raped and set on fire is showing a sick, twisted mind.

The fact that Freeman Hunt thought his account was hijacked, is surprising. He has said nearly as vile statements here on Althouse for quite sometime.

I don't understand why anyone is surprised at what he said today on this thread.

Chip Ahoy said...

Julia graduated college with high marks and a promising future. She met a man back there in college and the two fell in love and married. She finished her degree but made a careful decision to significantly change the arc that her life would take and she did successfully raise a family of four children and her husband eventually became a Republican Senator. Her story is still unfolding but mostly because of her husband's job her relationship with government is nothing at all what she anticipated.

EMD said...

Ouch. That really hurts.

rcommal said...

Freeman: I am very sad to say that I did NOT suspect an account-hijack. It's been a long way from the truly brilliant Fen's Law, alas, and I mean that sincerely. : (

Quayle said...

I think it works, if you can keep their nurse-wolfe from being eaten by Obama.

Ellen said...

What you apparently miss is the gulf between "enough is enough" and "more is better." Julia makes the case that more dependence is better.

garage mahal said...

I haven't followed anything about this woman. What is so mockable and gangbang worthy?

chickenlittle said...

Read the thread before I mock you, garage.

Paul Zrimsek said...

If Obama wins, there are going to be public schools? It just gets better and better!

rcommal said...

Stupid, dishonest, patronizing ad. And way more than Hal of it is meaningless.

rcommal said...

"half" of it, not "Hal." But LOL! It does sort of have a Hal tone to it.

Paul Zrimsek said...

How about "Romneyless and Reamus, founders of the New Rome"?

Now ruled by Julia's Seizer.

rcommal said...

Good work, Paul! Way to hit that pitch by Chick.

Freeman Hunt said...

If only that is where it stopped with Julia.

As for your question, yes, but I wish I hadn't, and no.

chickenlittle said...

Julia's Seizer
Damn that's good!

@R,L: :)

yashu said...

At least, Julia does not fall victim to the dreaded obesity epidemic in America.

Speaking of which, OMG, have you seen the trailer for HBO's big (no pun intended) 4-part obesity epidemic documentary, "The Weight of the Nation"?

I don't want to minimize or make light (no pun intended!) of the problem of obesity in America. Seriously, I understand that widespread obesity has serious ramifications not only for the individuals suffering from it, but the nation as a whole (affecting not only health but health care and thus public policy). It's a topic that deserves serious attention. Especially since it now appears many of the dietary guidelines the federal government has pushed in the past turn out to have been... completely wrong. Wonder if the doc will touch on that.

I feel a lot of sympathy for persons suffering from obesity.

But that trailer strikes me as so over the top-- especially the oh-so-obvious tie-in with Obama White House agitprop ("AN UNPRECEDENTED PUBLIC HEALTH CAMPAIGN"; the soaring overhead shots of the White House; it's like an Obama campaign ad)-- that I plead guilty of finding it… kinda funny. It's not even so much the hyperbole as the documentary style. Does it make me a bad person that I can't help but giggle at the last line, like the last line of an apocalyptic Hollywood movie trailer: "Obesity will crush the United States… in oblivion."

LOL, can't help it.

Lem said...

Come on.. just go for all the marbles.

If Obama doesn't win God is going to call him home.

Its not like it hasn't been tried before.

Penny said...

So!

No shame in our President's politics.

That pretty well frees up the citizenry to leave our guilt behind.

Penny said...

How positively decadent!

Except if you want to overeat bad stuff, because THERE there will be shame!

Amartel said...

"The Weight of a Nation" - this title has a familiar lefty ring to it...

Only the left can take a situation(fat people, the weather, bratty kids) and turn it into a national or preferably a global catastrophe (obesity, global warming, bullying) that can only be solved by government intervention and control and, of course, increased taxes and spending. And a movie deal, let us not forget. And no, I don't mean "Breakfast at Michael Moore's" which probably runs at least 3 hours.

Did the trailer start out "In a world ..."? Like, "In a world where people are allowed to eat WHATEVER THEY WANT [grainy shot of sad morbidly obese people waddling around], sometimes the government [swooping aerial shot of White House] must act."

Nathan Alexander said...

Women are goodness and light, and perfect. Govt policy should reflect that.
Women should be given money from the govt to let them live a lower-upper class lifestyle.
If they should choose to work, they should automatically be promoted to CEO.
Women's word should be taken as truth. If a woman says a man did something bad, the man should be convicted immediately, no trial.

Democrats are the party standing in the way of this.

Why are the Democrats engaged in this War on Women?

How can you live with yourself for supporting this vile, horrible, and despicable attack on women, garage and Ms. Oop?

wyo sis said...

Julia did it all with the help of Obama. She's part of the big happy Obama family. Julia's daddy Obama will pay for everything and allow her to behave in any way that pleases him. No other men are needed, just Obama and the money from the 1%. As long as Julia doesn't pork up and remembers to vote correctly all will be well until she gets an expensive health problem at an inconvenient age, then she can go to a beautifully curtained room and get happy pills until she dies as long as she's quick about it.

PatCA said...

I wonder who the father of Julia's child is.

Or doesn't that matter?

Lem said...

A quick look at that Obama Biden logo had me doing a double take..

Obama Biden..

Osama Bin Laden.

Palladian said...

Julia Child's father was a land manager in Pasadena.

EMD said...

Gangbang worthy? That's all fluked up, GM.

Go take a peek at it and see what's mockable. I'm sure, you, with your keen powers of observation and wit can come up something.

http://www.barackobama.com/life-of-julia

Henry said...

Funny. I thought Julia Child. Even without the Palladian's serendipitous pun. Same era. Sure, John says he wrote it for his mother and for Yoko Ono (really?) but perhaps he was just watching WGBH on tour in Boston.

Henry said...

@rcommal - 5:20. Exactly. There's no governor there. Everything goes to 11.

PETER V. BELLA said...

The Democrats are good at story telling. They are the once upon a time party where no one lives happily ever after. Julia is the newest fiction.

roesch/voltaire said...

A recent short-term study by Abbott-Shim, Lambert, and McCarty (2003) is particularly notable for using random assignment of eli- gible 4-year-olds who had applied to a large Head Start program with a waiting list. This procedure allowed the researchers to rule out selection bias as an influence on results. Abbott-Shim et al. (2003) found that Head Start participants benefited substantially com- pared to nonparticipants in the areas of recep- tive vocabulary and phonemic awareness and had more positive health-related outcomes, for example, they were more likely to be cur- rent on their immunizations.Good thing Julie at least got a head start, the rest with just a little bit of help.

Henry said...

But can Head Start cure hyphen trouble?

EMD said...

I can copy and paste, too:

n sum, this report finds that providing access to Head Start has benefits for both 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds in the cognitive, health, and parenting domains, and for 3-year-olds in the social-emotional domain. However, the benefits of access to Head Start at age four are largely absent by 1st grade for the program population as a whole. For 3-year-olds, there are few sustained benefits, although access to the program may lead to improved parent-child relationships through 1st grade…

EDH said...

"Have you always been a negro, or are you just trying to be fashionable?"

"Julia"

Julia is an American sitcom notable for being one of the first weekly series to depict an African American woman in a non-stereotypical role.

In Julia, Carroll played widowed single mother Julia Baker (her helicopter pilot husband had been shot down in Vietnam) who was a nurse in a doctor's office. The doctor, Morton Chegley, was played by Lloyd Nolan, and Julia's romantic interests by Paul Winfield and Fred Williamson. Julia's son, Corey (Marc Copage) was approximately six to nine years old during the series run. He had barely known his father before he died.

Previous television series featured African American lead characters, but the characters were usually servants. The show starred actress and singer Diahann Carroll, and ran for 86 episodes on NBC from September 17, 1968 to March 23, 1971.

Lem said...

Guess what:

Julia has never really worked a day in her life. She's never really dealt with the kind of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing in terms of how do we feed our kids, how do we send them to school, and why do we worry about their future.

cubanbob said...

So, none of you went to public school or had a federal student loan? Good for you, I guess. Apparently, I am not boot-strappy enough. I apologize for my dependence on the government.

Back in the day when I went school, the
schools were funded by property taxes, you know, local taxes. And believe it or not, people went to night school while working durring the day to pay for school.

@ Armartel Only the left can take a situation(fat people, the weather, bratty kids) and turn it into a national or preferably a global catastrophe (obesity, global warming, bullying) that can only be solved by government intervention

More than 20 years ago a friend of mine met an activist in D.C. who thought she was one of them. The technique he shared with her was you precipitate a crisis and then you can move in and solve it.

Lots of deja vue all over again with this bunch.

But then, progressive education doesn't include the chicken little or boy who cried wolf stories.

But most of all they never heard of the little red hen.

Someone should clue Julia in.

mrs whatsit said...

The scariest part of this is Obama's six-decade presidency. Maybe that's why we never see Julia voting!

Saint Croix said...

The scariest part of this is Obama's six-decade presidency.

It's so horrifying. It actually creeps me out. I assume what they want to say is that Obama's policies help women of all ages.

And yet by reducing all women to one woman, and reducing her to an ideological tool that is ruled by Obama for her entire life, it's terrifying.

How do they not know how creepy that is?

Paul Zrimsek said...

What makes Obama's six-decade presidency even more terrible to contemplate is that even when Julia's 67 years old, he'll still be blaming the difficulty of paying for her bennies on the economy he inherited from Bush.

X said...

So Julia stays thin and unmarried. Her personality must suck.

Christopher in MA said...

EMD said to garage Go take a peek at it and see what's mockable.

Good luck with that. This thread shows off typical garage idiocy; whenever his Little Black Jesus puts a foot wrong, he pretends to have never heard of whatever we might be talking about. And then when you do put him some knowledge, he either responds with imbecilic snark, a shriek of SQUIRREL! or doesn't bother to respond. He's a fundamentally dishonest hack.

****

Except for bright lights like Freeman, however, I'd be willing to bet that more women than not will be swayed by "Julia." Big Daddy Government protecting "independent" women is a sure vote-getter. It got Clinton elected twice and Urkel once. No reason to think it won't work again.

Synova said...

I've thought about tacking posters up on campus that Say, "Strong women don't want to be taken care of by men. They want to be taken care of by government."

there are at least two lies in that statement but I think that most foolish young ladies would get the concept. I refuse to believe that Freeman and I are alone in the world.
