Telepromptitude.

From the Lemur King Dictionary of Idiocy:

Main Entry: tele•prompt•i•tude
Pronunciation: \ˈte-lə-ˌpräm(p)–tə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd\
Function: noun
Etymology: from TelePrompTer, a trademark
Date: 2009

: The ability or lack thereof to communicate with or without a TelePrompTer (see TelePrompTer)

Apparently our O-Messiah is unable to function in society without a teleprompter and his track record with one is seriously being called into question.

Michelle must be a very patient woman.  A wedding ceremony like this must have been upsetting.

Rev. Wright or some other racist minister:  Do you, Barack Obama, take this woman…

Obama:  I… Barack Obama… … look meaningfully to Michelle … take this… woman… look to reverend…

Wright:  … to have and to hold…

Obama: … take Michelle’s hand… to have… look to the side… and to hold…

(oh the humanity – LK)

Obama’s TelePrompTer apparently has a lot to say that Obama is not relating.

As much as I emotionally feel otherwise, the US Gov’t has no business passing new tax laws in a punitive fashion to take away bonuses given to AIG executives.  In case you haven’t kept up:

US House passes 90-percent tax on AIG bonuses... (Drudge)

It was part of their contract.  Yes it is obscene.  But it was legal and it is effectively a debt owed by the company, AIG.

“The Democratic bill brought to the floor today is constitutionally questionable,” said Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind. “It’s obviously a transparent attempt to divert attention away from the truth that Democrats in Congress and this administration made these bonus payments possible.”

The bill would levy a 90 percent tax on bonuses paid to employees with family incomes above $250,000 at companies that have received at least $5 billion in government bailout money.

“We figured that the local and state governments would take care of the other 10 percent,” said Rangel.

Rangel, you utter pig.

For congress to pass a law thinly/narrowly targeted at these specific people with the intent to take all or nearly all of that specific money, especially in a punitive fashion… this is truly not a power given to congress.   This is totalitarianism.

Typical of the liberal mindset… democracy is the best thing EVAH, at least until it doesn’t swing your way, in which case you demonstrate, dictate, or go to court.

Leading climate scientist: ‘democratic process isn’t working’

You, too, can be the best serf that you can be.  Join Barack’s new elite corps of sheeple.

Too fat to work?  Move to Britain and let the English Corps of Sheeple (ECS) take care of you, for you.  Trust us.  Soon to be coming to America.

A British family of four, who receives more than $30,000 a year in benefits because they are “too fat to work,” says they deserve more money, London’s Daily Telegraph reported.

The Chawners, who live in Blackburn, England, have a combined weight of 1,160 pounds.

What we get barely covers the bills and puts food on the table,” Philip Chawner, 53, told the newspaper. “It’s not our fault we can’t work. We deserve more.”

Note:  I’m pretty sure putting food on the table took precedence over paying the bills.  Ahem.

OOOPS.  It’s HERE ALREADY!!!  So what if you aren’t fit enough to meet your police force’s regs on health and fitness!  The courts can keep you there anyway.  It’s not his fault if he can’t catch a bad guy.  They’ll just send him after fat and out-of-shape crooks.

Inventions that we could do without… cat wigs (huh?), inflatable dartboards (much like balloons for porcupines), and devices to let you know if you have collided with a pedestrian (the blood and body parts aren’t concrete enough indicators).
