Possible Obama VP Picks

Obama VP team discusses 20 possible picks (From CNN):

Sen. Barack Obama's vice presidential search team on Tuesday shared with a Democratic senator the names of about 20 people under consideration to be the presumptive Democratic nominee's running mate.

Sen. Kent Conrad, D-North Dakota, said that some of those considered are "top officials now," others are "former lawmakers" and others are "former top military leaders."

He said many of the names already have been "bandied about" in the media, but others were "outside the box."

He declined to give examples.


[...]

Although Obama's campaign has not released the names of any front-runners for the VP spot, there's been a lot of speculation about who he will pick.

Sen. Hillary Clinton, whose tenacious refusal to surrender the nomination contest turned the Democratic race into one of the most nail-biting in modern U.S. political history, has indicated that she would be willing to sign up on a joint ticket.

Other possible front-runners include former presidential hopefuls Joe Biden, Chris Dodd, Bill Richardson and John Edwards.

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, who has often been mentioned as a possible vice presidential pick, said Tuesday that if asked, he would "absolutely not" join the party's presidential ticket this fall.

Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, who has served on both armed services and intelligence committees in the Senate, has been mentioned as a possible contender.

And ever since New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg ruled out his own independent bid for the presidency, he's been seen as a potential running mate for both Obama and John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Wesley Clark
, a former NATO commander who failed in his bid for the 2004 presidential nomination, could be in the running, along with a slew of current politicians including Gov. Ed Rendell of Pennsylvania, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas and Sen. Jim Webb of Virginia.

You might be a terrorist if....

From the HuffPo:

Now that Michelle and Barack Obama have been exposed as Osama's lackeys due to their foolishly giving each other the terrorist fist jab so common in al-Qaeda and Hamas circles, we can finally rest easy, safe in the knowledge that this mole that the terrorists cleverly hid away in a Christian church for several decades will never see the inside of the White House. Why the Obamas displayed this well-known terrorist secret handshake so publicly will probably never be known, until they confess under duress at Guantanamo of course, but best not to think about that too hard. Victory's on the march, after all. The Obamas are only the latest terror-sympathizing fifth columnists to be revealed to the world. Just a few days before the Obamas shamelessly revealed their desire for never-ending jihad with a shocked American public, fellow terrorist Rachael Ray was caught red-handed wearing a Sharia-inspired scarf. The terrorists seems to be everywhere these days, what with their running for president and shilling for donutmongers. But as long as we all make like Michelle Malkin and keep our eyes open, wary for the next foul scarf, we'll all be fine. What follows, then, are more signs of terrorist sympathies. Learn them. Know them. They just might save your life. Or your life. Or your life. Or YOURS!

Signs you might be a terrorist:

1) If you drink any sort of coffee with a name ending in "-ccino," you might be a terrorist.

2) If you plan on voting for fist-pounding terrorist sympathizer Barack Obama, you might be a terrorist.

3) If you live in San Francisco, you might be a terrorist.

4) If you think that even Michelle Malkin could find better things to do with her time than examine the fashion choices of Rachael Ray, you might be a terrorist.

5) If you think that Fox News' reporting of a fist pound as a terrorist fist jab makes them look shockingly, eye-poppingly, searingly stupid as opposed to making Barack Obama look like a terrorist, you might be a terrorist.

6) If you went out and bought one of those scarves the minute Dunkin Donuts pulled the ad, you might be a terrorist.

7) If you read Huffington Post, you might be a terrorist.

8) If you actually blog at Huffington Post, you are a terrorist. Report to Guantanamo for re-education.


The Cure - Pictures of You (Live) - Houston, Texas

Last night I saw The Cure in concert at the Toyota Center, Houston, Texas. This is only my second time seeing the band, the first time was in Orlando in 1996. The show was amazing and they sounded perfect. Seriously, it was like listening to a really, really loud CD. The modest-sized crowd was stoked throughout the evening as Robert Smith et al. performing a blistering 3+ hour, 33 song set that including three encores. Anyhow, I decided to personally record and now blog one of my all-time favorite The Cure songs, "Pictures of You".

McCain: America is a Christian Nation

Is this video, McCain is desperately and pathetically pandering to the extreme right-wing evangelicals by putting forth the same old, and debunked (and here and here and here), talking points that "America is a Christian Nation", the "Constitution establishes America as a Christian Nation", etc., etc.,


How come the words "Christ" or "Jesus" or "Christianity" do not appear anywhere in the Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, or the rest of Constitution?

Answer:
The U.S. Constitution is a secular document. It begins, "We the people," and contains no mention of "God" or "Christianity." Its only references to religion are exclusionary, such as, "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust" (Art. VI), and "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (First Amendment). The presidential oath of office, the only oath detailed in the Constitution, does not contain the phrase "so help me God" or any requirement to swear on a bible (Art. II, Sec. 1, Clause 8). If we are a Christian nation, why doesn't our Constitution say so?

In 1797 America made a treaty with Tripoli, declaring that "the government of the United States is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion." This reassurance to Islam was written under Washington's presidency, and approved by the Senate under John Adams.

Terrorist Fist Jabs: Terrorists Are Everywhere!

As noted earlier, that inept excuse for a cable "news" station (i.e. Faux "News") accused Michelle and Barack of performing a "terrorist fist jab" prior to Barack's "victory" speech as the presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee. So, I decided to provide a dedicated blog entry to expose all the other terrorist fist jabbers out there and hope to add more as we, good Americans, track-down and identify these scoundrels:


Young American gymnast terrorists


Baseball terrorists


More baseball terrorists


Football players and young white boy terrorists


American Idol terrorists


Harry Connick Jr, the terrorist


Senator Terrorists Feinstein (D-CA) and Hutchison (R-TX)


Cartoon terrorists


Old White Men Playing Golf Terrorists


Some sort of terrorist fist jabbing training tool for our youth


Terrorist Polar Bears (perhaps this is why right-wingers want to destroy the artic?)


Ricky Bobby aka Terroristy Bobby


LIEbermann (I-Israel) the Independent terrorist


The Original Terrorist Fist Jab


U.S. Soldier terrorists
Watch the very end of the commercial.

Fox News: Obama’s Fist Bump, "A Terrorist Fist Jab?"

From MMFA:

Teasing a segment on the "gesture everyone seems to interpret differently," Fox News' E.D. Hill said: "A fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab? ... We'll show you some interesting body communication and find out what it really says." In the ensuing discussion with a "body language expert," Hill referred to the "Michelle and Barack Obama fist bump or fist pound," but at no point did she explain her earlier reference to "a terrorist fist jab." Click here to read more...



Fox "News", once again, displays zero journalist [sic] integrity by attempting to link a Democrat to terrorism. What's even worse is that the inept idiots at Faux picked up the concept of a "terrorist jab" from a poster comment from the far, far, right-wing website Human Events.com in a blog entry by Cal Thomas.
Michelle is not as “refined” as Obama at hiding her TRUE feelings about America–etc. Her “Hezbollah” style fist-jabbing–mouth-twisted anti-American speeches is STRAIGHT from ISLAM!
*sigh* It's so pathetic and sad, yet not unexpected to see the low-life scum at Faux parroting the comments made at a far, far right-wing website.

So, by right-wing "standards", it appears we are surrounded by terrorists:


Young American gymnast terrorists


Baseball terrorists


Football players and young white boy terrorists


American Idol terrorists



Harry Connick Jr, the terrorist


Senator Terrorists Feinstein (D-CA) and Hutchison (R-TX)


The original terrorist fist jab


U.S. Soldier terrorists
Watch the very end of the commercial.
