Thanks to the tireless efforts of Cruel Wife (who must put up with me or bury me – she’s on the fence right now), LC Aggie Sith (who pities me), and Steamboat McGoo (who mocketh me, and rightfully so), a brand new unique old idea has come to life.

Yes, ’tis arrogance that has caused me to put newbie-style watermarks on the image but dammit, I have slaved over this particular one, so I’m doing it and it’ll go up on Zazzle tomorrow night – or tonight if I’m feeling feisty enough.

The bib-t-shirt design with the classic lobster-bib look is on my slate for tomorrow night as well.

Real Clear Politics had this:

President Obama, with a coarse voice, warned a crowd in Ohio: “They’re fighting back. The empire is striking back. To win this election, they are plowing ten’s of millions of dollars into front groups. They are running misleading negative ads all across the country.”

It could easily read this way:

President Obama, with a hoarse voice from too many White House parties with Kwame Kilpatric told a crowd in Ohio:  “We’re losing it.  We tried to create a progressive empire by plowing billions and trillions of dollars into special interest groups and selected recipients to maximize our chances of getting re-elected.  And we went too far.  We’re machine-gunning ourselves in the feet with every move we make all across the country.  But we’ll win because we’re better than Republicans and <i>their</i> front groups.”

 

And on Fox News today:

Americans are so “scared” they’re not thinking straight about the upcoming elections, President Obama said over the weekend, as he sought to explain why voters are turning to Republican candidates.

The president, speaking at several rallies and fundraisers as part of his final get-out-the-vote stretch, said Republican candidates are “playing on fear” and suggested voters are falling for it. He said Americans have every reason to be worried, but lamented that “facts” aren’t doing his party any good this year.

Scared?  Oh yes, of Democrats.  Not thinking straight?  Never been clearer, Obama.  We’re crys-tal.

Of course facts aren’t doing your party any good, Obama!  Because the facts are this:  You screwed the pooch.

Getting more than a little tired of the Dems blaming everything (arrogantly) on ignorant masses, confusion, fear, or Republican lies.  Sorry, but when a laundry list of ills from every source and every direction presents itself… you can’t explain them all away, some must actually be true.
