...but don't you dare ask what a community organizer actually does.
A commenter at QandO was nice enough to explain the difference between
Obama Black Nixon and Palin:
Jesus was a community organizer. Pilate was a governor.
To which I replied:
And last night was the crucifixion.
Hey, you know who else was a community organizer? Don Corleone.
P.S. Here's a funny thing: If you Google "Jesus was a community organizer" "Pilate was a governor", suddenly that moronic non sequitur is all over the place. Hundreds of results, and I'll give you a cookie made of dreams if you can find one dated before Sept. 4. Purely spontaneous, right?
Way to get rid of the "He thinks he's the Messiah" meme, geniuses. Astroturfing sucks, but if it helps turn even more people away from a witless crybaby like Obama, who wants to be president because otherwise it's not fair, that works for me. We are the spam we've been waiting for.
And you'll never guess where this wonderful, poetic grassroots slogan "originated". It's attributed only to "a reader." Kos is such an idiot that he couldn't even come up with a fake name to put it under. How about "Sparack Spobama"? "Spavid Spaxelrod"? (I wonder if this Kos page will be deleted, just like the one that launched the utterly deranged conspiracy theory about Palin's youngest son? Get the disinfo out there, and then remove the source. Orwell was an amateur.)
P.P.S. If you're a community organizer and you want to help organize a community of other community organizers to stop the mockery of, um, whatever the hell it is you do:
They're demanding an apology from Sarah Palin. Perhaps they haven't been paying attention. I think that'll happen the day after Joe Biden gets through a full paragraph without reminding people of a much less likable Ted Baxter.
P.P.P.S. How about McCain's speech, huh? It's not his strong suit, and there was no way he was going to outshine the VP, but he did fine. And he had help. Five years of torture didn't stop him, but some fatty in a pink t-shirt was supposed to? I predict Obama will put out a statement tomorrow insisting that he had no specific knowledge of Code Pink's plans. (By the way, if you're wondering how those CP idiots got into the convention: They wear the tinfoil inside the hat.)
P.P.P.P.S. I love the stupid pundits who say Sarah used too much sarcasm last night. Yeah, why make a political speech interesting? You might hurt your opponent's feelings. Not to mention, all that open mockery was obviously designed to rattle Obama, a notoriously thin-skinned grievance monger. Which it obviously has, with flying colors.Posted by Jim Treacher at September 4, 2008 06:58 PM
