That alt.poop sucks. I suppose it's inevitable in an age where even the tech support people don't know wtf the Internet is. How many members of the nerdcore are still using USENET?

Also, 10K, I'd guessed you were interested in the empty, insubstantial portion of the article. I assume your inner Hulk took over and you smashed the monitor before you got to the end.

Invest in stretchy pants.

I saw the latest hulk. The first one was much better imo. Not sure why most of the reviews panned it but seemed to like the latest one.

And now Obama wants to continue giving government money to religious charities...I wonder if he's gonna go for the trifecta of unconstitutionality.

I can see what he's doing with this one...the government has been in bed with religious hospitals and stuff for ages, and he's talking about serious improvements on Bush's policies (involving other unconstitutional stuff). And he could try to calm everyone down on both sides and be a uniter instead of a divider and all that.

But he's smart enough to know that this is just fundamentally evil. While all the hillbillies are worried about him being a Muslim, I'm starting to worry about him being too Christian for his own good.

Oh well, Carter's a lunatic Bible thumper and he's a decent and honest man, but...gah...

Don't like playing this rationalization game. Going to go play Katamari instead.

If bama's not a closet atheist I'll eat my polygons. Let this Rose interview queue up to 28:30, watch a few minutes, and then tell me that guy's a believer.

I wonder whether any human can be so politically adroit and charismatic (not to mention having the other qualities necessary for presidential candidates - rich, educated, connected, etc) that he can afford to be honest about difficult issues in America during an election. That seems to be who K is waiting for, which on the one hand strikes me as self-flagellatory, OTOH as some Frenchman spraypainted 40 yrs ago: Be realistic. Demand the impossible.

I was a little taken aback by the straight-shooting in that interview, and then I saw that it was from 2006. That's the guy I got excited about.

My first thought when I saw his speech at the '04 convention was "Man, that guy is great...too bad he's black." I shared the YouTube of the speech with a few people a while later and they said almost exactly the same thing.

I'm still on the line with Obama. I'm waiting to see who he picks as VP before I consider donating to his campaign.

And he keeps saying stuff which he knows is wrong, although he pissed me off less this go-round than the last. He came out and said he'd accept a bill with off shore drilling, which he knows is stupid, and that got me all grumpy with him again.

But then he clarified that the drilling is indeed stupid, but he'd let it slide in the spirit of compromise (also 70% of America's not smart population is for it, so he's at least reflecting the will of the people I guess). So, anyway, then I felt a little better.

And then the Republicans mocked his call for efficiency (in a manner I think would be quite effective on 10K) and then the black man came back by calling the Republicans willfully and gleefully ignorant. And that scored major points with me.

Additionally, if he were president, he could just ban it by decree (as well as undo any FISA damage) and give a big fuck you to all the stupids. Although of course he can't say that out loud.

I'm no longer worried that deep down he doesn't know the right path, but I am a little worried by how far he's willing to stray to win. If he uses Bush as a model, however, (and he is certainly smart enough to do so) he can poop out a few lies on the way in and then just do whatever the fuck he wants once he gets into office.

I wonder if he'll resist that temptation. Probably no reason to do so.

As for the Jesus thing, it does seem pretty apparent from that clip that he sees religion purely as a societal and cultural tool. I think Mr. Vinderloot is right.

Obama should also have issued a strong statement demanding that Russia withdraw, right? Those strong statements usually do work. I am sure Russia withdrew because of McCain's strong statement.

you can't have glib without Obama... I'm sure he'll figure out a snowy way to convince people he did what was most becoming of himself.

On Georgia, I agree with this guy:

here

"The US has no rational basis to be as committed to Georgia as Russia is; and has very little moral standing to protest an invasion of a sovereign country."

what's *not* to like about a plagarist!

on top of that he's an old white male that's deeply embedded in "old" washington. Just what an energizing new comer needs to ground his nomination on a platform of youthful exuberance defined as Change.

not

I was hoping he'd go with the chick from Kansas as I'm thinking Obama needs more sway in the west and from hillary supporters than he knows. Bitch must've been wack.

I find Palin annoying too, since I think she sounds more like Rush Limbaugh than someone who could lead the free world (and not just as the convention, where the point is to rile up the people who already agree with you). She comes across as petty and insane (the God stuff is really scary).

But she has the George Bush factor. People liked him because he wasn't intellectually threatening and he gave them the idea that he's similar to them. I can see a lot of women feeling "Hey, she's a petty asshole just like me! I can relate to this woman!".

McCain obviously isn't going for the youth vote, but think of all the crazy religious white women out there in the flyover states. I think she's a real winner with them.

I think she's very skillful at that thing she's doing. It embarrasses me as an American, but Bush did that for years and people liked him for a long time.

re:speech David Brooks of the NYT said it better: "...I didn't think this was a Rush Limbaugh speech at all. One of the great lines I thought she had was being a mayor of this town is like being a community organizer with responsibilities.

That's not the Rush Limbaugh type of humor. It's a much more personal, "I'm just regular folks" kind of humor, than the biting, belittling Rush Limbaugh-type of humor."

"Great", I guess, in that it's one of those completely empty statements that is more Something Awful pissing match than actual political discourse.

I've just been on the net long enough to realize it's not worth partaking in 10K's moronspeak. He just throws up a bunch of irrelevant noise and thinks he's talking politics.

In his defense, the media does this almost exclusively. Campaign coverage is all about pointless krap like Obama's lipstick comment, whether or not McCain called his wife a "cunt", how Biden is going to have to debate differently so he doesn't look like he's picking on the chick, etc. I can't remember the last time I saw a story about actual policy differences.

On the other hand, maybe this is what voters actually care about, since 10K and legions of other complete fucking retards out there insist on blindly voting against their stated interests, whether it's Hillary voters who are so fucking angry they'll vote for anything with a vagina or 10K and his obsession with imaginary creations of the media.

I find this video about lies reasonably interesting. Smear ads annoy the piss out of me.

To be fair, there have been a few Obama ads that had a bit of a "lol mccain sucks!" tone to them which is particularly grating after he made this whole big deal about how he's the grownup and TV slander campaigns are a waste of time and energy but whatever. Obama apologists retort with "dude seriously he is just playing the game!!"

I wish I could somehow vote for Herb Kohl. He's an old guy that gets it.

kali: I find this video about lies reasonably interesting.

I like the Brave New Films guy, but he doesn't always make the best case. The best argument there was the bit where the "tiny" comment was shown to be out of context, with the raw footage of what Obama actually said. The ones where they quote some MSNBC talking head saying something isn't true are hardly convincing, even if they are accurate.

You're right that Obama does the same thing, though. They keep taking the "rich >= $5M" McCain quote out of context. It's another Al Gore invented the Internet thing. Once Jay Leno says it, it becomes fact.

All of that, though, is of course horseshit in relation to actual policy. I guess what makes them important is that the great unwashed care so much about them, and majority rules.

The other thing is that it's basic psychology that people will remember attacks more easily than positive claims. In fact, the more the media explained that Obama is not a Muslim, the more people started believing that he was, because they only remembered the attack, the not the context (even though the context was an explanation that it's not actually true).

10K: In a country of grossly inept everyone elses, Mr K - you alone are society's last bulwark of impartial, clear thinking political understanding. perhaps when you are dead or the shackles of unfair governance are torn away will you, and the one or two others that share your socio political pansophy receive the appreciation and praise so well deserved. until that time however it remains the burden of such genius to endure the ignorant, vulgar throws of the masses and ill informed opinions endemic to the society in which you are embedded.

That might be the first reasonable thing you've said in this thread.

Seriously, though, it's pretty easy to become One of Us. Just use some critical thinking skills you should have been (but probably were not) taught in skool.

I believe Saturday Night Live featuring Obama and Michael Phelps that airs tommorrow will be a very big event/victory for Obama's image. Obama by now has realized that he needs to connect with people on a more instinctive gut level (like Palin has) and devalue the projections that he is an elitest, out-of-touch Harvard Lawyer. I expect the campaign team to be gunning for an "OMG DID YOU SEE SNL?" event that Palin's speech seemed to accomplish.

I predict that there will be some headline-grabbing coverage of something remarkable ala Bill's saxaphone (but perhaps a funny one liner deftly delivered?).

What would be cool: Obama and SNL crew POKE FUN AT OBAMA. I think it would behoove him to crack a humorous smile and make (more) light of himself. I think it would help his image more and if all the negative campaigning McCain is doing just seemed to roll off of his back (instead of lipstick on pig reactions).

What would be lame: Obama used as a device for Tina Fey to channel gun-toting, oil drinking Fargo Palin (like the "Mac Guy" and "PC Guy" windows vs. apple TV ads).

anyway - my bold prediction is that SNL will be much more impactful on obama's campaign than the press seems to anticipate.

we'll see!

looks like B-Rock was a no-show, but Tina Fey made a pretty lollerskates Palin.

this is the first piece of media I have consumed straight from a TV since the Olympics. god damn commercials are fucking annoying.

Yeah I was disappointed that he couldn't make it. I really didn't like Tina Fey's impression of Palin but maybe I'm biased! I'm willing to bet that Obama makes it to SNL before the election.

Someone tried to send me the YouTube, but NBC had already had it yanked. I had all the krap necessary to watch NBC on my computer since the end of an Olympics event I was watching ran long and my TiVo missed it. Commercials do suck balls, and they're even worse on the computer.

Anyway, it was kinda funny. Fey did a really good impression.

Also I am hoping we will get out of 10K Land when the debates start, but I suspect the media will respond with a collective "Oh no, he/she dih-ent!" to some comment or other.

on NYT re:Palin

"The truth is that Governor Palin does lack policy expertise in many areas. So did Presidents Clinton and Bush. In fact, they both made major foreign policy mistakes. But JFK and LBJ also made big foreign policy mistakes like Vietnam, and as the book title states, they were surrounded by the best and the brightest.

What The New York Times really fears is a return of traditional principles. The paper sees a rejection of secularism and their beloved one-world foreign policy going right down the drain. If Sarah Palin catches on, the brave new secular world The Times espouses takes a huge hit. That's what's going on here."

it sure is hard to make an informed decision through OPED articles everywhere... (how do you fact check everyone's claims?).

More importantly how long until the notion of East vs. West, Coasts vs. "Fly overs" is acknowledged as the North vs. South of a century ago? It's really like two different countries it seems. I guess F Scott Fitzgerald outlined this argument in the Great Gatsby (but I never read it).

I think the election will come down to whoever shouts loudest and more derisively while maintaining smug know-it-allisms.

Have you played around with Hulu? It's pretty solid, someone said "it's like YouTube has grown up and gotten a job." The ad interruptions are usually minor, but they have started trying to sneak in these annoying ads that are visible at the bottom of the screen while you're watching stuff -- those are jarring and I hope they shitcan them.

The shittiest part of Hulu I've discovered is that it will not stream ahead (or "buffer") when you pause the video. We were trying to watch the premiere of that awful Fringe show the other night and I guess their servers were getting slammed because it was pretty much Choppyville the whole way through. About 14 minutes in, and the woman's had all she can take (I'd already quit watching) so we closed the shit and grabbed a commercial-free 720p pirated rip from Usenet, and it downloaded as fast as our shitty Comcast connection would allow.

You win, networks...?

I've tried Hulu and it worked for the thing I was looking for, but I usually stick to the TiVo, since I don't yet have a reasonable way to output PC data to the teevee. I don't think Hulu has a lot of the nonsense I watch either, like the McLaughlin Group.

(Pat Buchanan is an asshole, but he's not intellectually dishonest like most Republicans, so he's interesting to watch. Then they've got McLaughlin himself, who might be the funniest guy on teevee, and The Least Threatening Negro in the World. Also it's a lot of fun to watch the conservatives rile up that poor old liberal woman. I guess it's my version of Jay Leno, since it's low on content and rarely informative, but I find it funny.)

EDIT: Also, this sums up the show, although he's been much funnier, such as when he declared "Warren G. Harding was a negro!".

Anyway, I've adjusted to the shitty quality of YouTube, which is sort of amusing since it makes me crave HD even less.

Also I finally sent a few bucks to Obama (never done that for a Democrat before) and he sent me some questions about issues. I plugged your net neutrality thing, and said it's something the kids care about and adults will have no idea wtf it is, so advertising his position can't hurt.

You're welcome.
