Barack Obama Cannot Save Us

Rather, we are going to have to save Barack Obama.

I first heard that comment last summer in Austin, and read it again last week in the New Yorker magazine. It was spoken by Van Jones, founding president of Green For All and a senior fellow with the Center for American Progress.

The statement is as true as it gets, because we liberals and progressives are the exact opposite of the folks Robert Altemeyer calls "authoritarian followers."

You know. Wingnuts.

Wingnuts need someone to tell them what to do and think. Wingnuts are desperately anxious for someone to save them. And when that someone doesn't pan out, they throw him overboard and go looking for the next big thing that they believe will save them.

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

Stupid wingnuts. They just never learn. They don't believe wingnuttery can fail, only that it can be failed.

Anywhoozle, the time has come to start saving President Barack Hussein Obama, motherfuckers.

Oh, yeah.

Good Fucking Riddance

Other folks have written at greater length, and more eloquently, about what it will mean to be rid of this worthless pissant.

For my part, I plan to shuffle the sack of shit off to a less prominent spot on my blog after Barack Obama takes office tomorrow.

Dirty Fucking Hippie YouTube Monday (Tuesday)

Jeez, no wonder they stopped touring.

My oldest sister wore through several copies of this song on '45, and while she made my parents crazy, I thought it was kind of interesting, in my 9-year old mind.

The genie was out of the bottle, and turning back was not an option.

I have no regrets. Rock on.
