"I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points higher in the polls. If I were watching Fox News, I wouldn't vote for me, right?
"Because the way I'm portrayed 24/7 is as a freak! I am the latte-sipping, New York Times-reading, Volvo-driving, no-gun-owning, effete, politically correct, arrogant liberal. Who wants somebody like that?"
I would've guessed cappuccino.
It's not enough that he has the overwhelming majority of the media -- not to mention the left-wing blogs that are apparently their main source of information -- in his pocket. He can brook no disagreement whatsoever. Want to go on the radio to talk about his past? You must be stopped. Want to put out ads about his positions on the issues? You must be stopped. Want to ask him a question when he descends from the heavens into your neighborhood while you're playing football with your kid? You must be stopped.
Obama is the victim, no matter what. That really is how he sees himself. Vote for President Princess!
Why do you think Palin knocked him for a loop in the first round? Because she mocked his behavior. She got big laughs by repeating his rhetoric. She saw his biggest weakness, his huge, easily bruised ego, and zeroed in on it. He's learned from that -- note his amazingly genuine laughter at McCain's home-hitting zingers the other night -- but not soon enough.
And obviously not completely enough. We can see you, Barack. Keep whining about how mean the meanies are.
If you vote for this narcissist, then you'd better be prepared for at least 4 years of agreeing with every single thing he says and does. Keep your mouth shut, racist. Or he'll get his guys to shut it for you.
P.S. You want to see Joe's license to question Obama? Dig up his birth certificate. Joe's, I mean. Obama's is off-limits.Posted by Jim Treacher at October 18, 2008 10:34 AM
