Added some color.  Some swooshy.  Used colors from the grand old “Hope” poster.  Washed ’em out.  Seemed fitting.

Thanks to iamfelix for the link to iowahawk, where Obama talks about ‘tards.   (this is satire, folks)

The O-Messiah shows that yet again without his prompter he is incapable of speaking things that reek of intelligence.

Obama Apologizes for Calling His Bad Bowling ‘Like the Special Olympics’

My personal feelings?  I’m glad you asked.  Frankly I think it is a non-issue when 90% of the people out on the streets have probably said something at some point in their lives that used “special olympics” to make a joke.

An entire episode of Seinfeld was at the expense of the handicapped.  Ditto South Park.

Get.  Over.  It.  Just stop being (1) so overly-sensitive, and (2) hypocritical.

Where I choose to criticize Obama is that a supposed “cut-above” individual (I want my president to be a six-σ kind of guy, sorry) ought to be able to police his mind/thoughts enough to realize when he’s speaking that what is about to come out his mouth next is probably not a good idea.  If he’s that incapable of thinking quickly on his feet, we have a problem.

You could say that verbally-speaking the man is unsteady enough on his feet to need double-wide shoes.

Well, isn’t this just something very nearing irony?  (but still not quite)

MANAMA, Bahrain

Two U.S. Navy vessels — a nuclear-powered submarine and an amphibious ship — collided before dawn Friday in the mouth of the Persian Gulf, one of the world’s most important sea passages for oil supplies.

I’d be willing to bet that things got really exciting immediately following the collision as both craft went to high alert.

Thankfully nuke material was not released or we’d be paying $250 a barrel for oil for quite some time and Obama’s ridiculously rosy projection for the economy would look really stupid.

This is days old, but apparently people exercising their free speech are hurting people’s feelings and endangering the very future of their city.

SALISBURY — In her final State of the City address, Salisbury Mayor Barrie Parsons Tilghman warned residents of what she sees as a great danger to the city: malicious bloggers.

Where did we get all these people who grew up in such sterile environments that they cannot handle criticism of any kind?  The ratio of spinless organisms to vertebrates seems awfully high.
