Reporter to Obama: Does being so goshdarned good-looking cause problems for your campaign?

posted at 9:24 pm on April 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

Hard to imagine a question that better encapsulates the media’s love affair with St. Barry than this, but give them time: With fully six months until Election Day, we may yet be treated to a bona fide Nina Burleigh moment.

Exit question: Think Bill’s jealous?

I completely agree. The pendulum has swung about as far as it can before more backlash.

He’s so full of it. What a lame attempt at making himself more the “common man”…same suits, patch them up, haircuts, bowling scores…gimme a break.

JetBoy on April 27, 2008 at 9:43 PM

I talked to 5 eighteen year old new voters. They all want Obama and they all think McCain will die in office so their 2nd choice is Clinton.

If this is what we are facing, we are in a lot of trouble.

bnelson44 on April 27, 2008 at 9:43 PM

What a f—–g stupid question.
When will this brain-sucking campaign end?

Jetboy – apparently you’ve never seen a political campaign before where every candidate does the exact same photo opp things. How are you enjoying it?

If more than one of those 5 actually votes in the general election it will be a statistical anomaly.

Heck, the Blues Brothers had just one dark suit, dark sun glasses, half a pack of cigarettes and were on a mission from God!

Obama, you are no Jake and Elwood Blues.

That was the longest 4:40 minutes of a non-answer I’ve evah heard.

This is your brain on the democrat party.

Actually, I would love to see this milked all the way to the Democrat convention in Denver.

The altitude there will implode the vacuum left by all the brain-sucking action.

Excuse my French, but the turd that I composed and discharged this morning in my field behind the oak tree looks sexier than the ugly shadow of that media whore Hussein Banana O’Bamba.

Seriously.

And really, I had no choice, it caught me by surprise.

Luckily I wasn’t wearing any underwear today.

I usually keep it light on the weekends.

Clearly you are not drinking what Andrew Sullivan is drinking. Andrew Sullivan is absolutely enamored with Barack Obama’s off-white/off-dark complexion, manly nanny-state authoritarian Marxism, easy pickings incompetence (perfect for conquest!), naive charm, and of course Barack’s big, black, ears.

Barack Obama is the perfect man for an alternative lifestyle leftist (I apologize for the redundancy) to have a crush on.

The news tonight is Rev. Wright’s speech at the NAACP. Fox carried it live. I’ve never heard something that entertaining in all my life. Now, that’s beauty.

The audience was mesmerized. He used “Barack Hussein Obama” three times for emphasis, and, among other curiosities, claimed that there are many atheists in the Arab community, and that Arabic is not a religion, in case you didn’t know this already.

Entelechy on April 27, 2008 at 10:22 PM

I got censored earlier here for this same comment I am about to make again. The man has BLUE lips. I don’t find that attractive. It reminds me of cyanosis. Not a good thing.

Entelechy on April 27, 2008 at 10:22 PM

He’s right, Arabs are atheists. Any one who worships a stone is an atheist. Allah was the greatest among the stone deities during the time of Muhammad (Hell be upon him).

Atheists worship everything except God.

Muhammad made the (future) Muslims believe that a stone created them.

And that that stone is the Judeo-Christian God !!!

What a mess, Islam !!

So basically I can do it too.

Here’s a stone, Entelechy, this stone is the God of the Bible.

Now, this stone revealed itself to me and sent me a Book telling me that I’m the last of the prophets and my new name is Indiana Jones.

Come on join me, let’s conquer the world with the sword and convert people to my new religion.

If you refuse to convert and join me, I’ll behead you.

By the way, Arabic is not a religion, Arabic is the language spoken by Saudi goats and camels.

And what a stupid question. He’s not campaigning for an Academy Award, he wants to be President of the United States.

Idiot reporter, idiot question, idiot candidate.

Well, next year, I don’t know if I’ll go. There will be too many Liberals behind and in front of me.

I can give them liberal jokes but I’ll have to wear a “pies proof” suit.

Obama replied:

Gosh… how do you enunciate so clearly with your lips hermetically-sealed to my butt?

profitsbeard on April 27, 2008 at 11:09 PM

EH, I think Obama is fairly handsome, in a big eared, dorky sort of way. He has an ‘engaging’ smile. Nicer LOOKING than any of the other current and failed candidates on either side, other than Romney.

Take politics, his hatred of America and hatred of ‘white people’ out of the equation and he would probably nice to have a beer and a BBQ pork sandwich with.

Doesn’t make him any less of an ‘empty suit’, Marxist, corrupt, lying politician though.

LegendHasIt on April 27, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Oh for chrissakes, he’s not even that goodlooking. He has good teeth and that’s about it. He could probably reduce his carbon footprint by eschewing the airlines for campaign travel and just fly under the power of his Dumbo ears…

morganfrost on April 28, 2008 at 12:12 AM

I’m trying to figure out why the esteemed senator didn’t upbraid the reporter for asking such a question. Wasn’t Obama angry that the last debate hadn’t focused on the “big” issues?

Five suits. Four pair of shoes. What a man of the people. Only four pair of $500 shoes. Only five $3000 suits. Slumming it! This guy is an egomaniac. The right answer was that his appearance as an issue pales in comparison to the serious issues facing the world. A great segway was dangling there. Nope, Michelle this and my suits that, It’s all about him.

Hot Air poll. How many suits?

Egfrow on April 28, 2008 at 1:58 AM

My ex-wife told me last year that she was going to vote for Obama (mainly because she read his ‘autobiography’).

Yesterday she surprised me by saying she’s voting for Hillary. When I Asked why (keep in mind, politics were always a touchy subject in our 13 year marriage), she said said Obama is all talk and Hillary is a “strong kick-ass woman” (her words).

She then started slamming Obama with as much enthusiasm as she used to reserve for Hillary.

I never mentioned McCain as she ranted about her own party. And she never mentioned McCain, either.

This passes for legit journalism these day? Shameless fawning? Cripes, that girl would also probably be the first one in line to wonder aloud “why female journalists aren’t being taken seriously”.

Here’s a clue for ya, Honey: you’re it!

He was “raised with far less advantages than his two remaining opponents”…yes and he’s also been able to skate through public life without even a fraction of the scrutiny they’ve recieved. Not to mention he’s been spared the hardships of say, five years of captivity in one of the most brutally infamous POW facilities in history.

Hey Barry, when you where down there “on the streets”, how many times were your arms broken by sadistic thugs determined to get you to comply with their demands?

Also, last I checked, neither of his opponents have thrown their grandmother under the bus to cover for a race baiting, America hating, scumbag.

This guy has got to be the biggest whiner ever to hit the trail in pursuit of the Oval Office.

Bar. None.

Now the south side street cred. He’s from Hyde Park…yuppie. She’s from 75th and Euclid. Not that bad over there. Bunch of black county, city and state patronage workers that got their jobs through Stroger, Beavers and Harold Washington when he was mayor. They’re full of s–t.

LtE126 on April 28, 2008 at 6:30 AM

What of Joseph Epstein’s characterizations of the three tops in the Race?

1. Hillary as Lady MacBeth I noted months ago myself, so no surprise others see her damned bloody stain as well, a mere spot on the surface revealing the ultimate evil consisting of her mind.

2. “Obama’s naïve yet carefully orchestrated idealism. It’s like Yale’s Lady Macbeth versus Harvard’s Billy Budd.” Obama to play the sacrificial lamb whom the system lynches? Since BHO is anything BUT naive, let’s not attribute any sincerity beyond his desire to take and abuse power in the name of self-righteousness. As Epstein points out, Obama is a mere mirage of carefully orchestrated idealism; nothing real except deceit. BHO is merely the other side of Hillary’s coin.

3. “John McCain might be compared to Herman Melville’s Bartleby the Scrivener: When it comes to expanding government, he really ‘would prefer not to’.” The tag-line is clever. Just as McCain suffered years of POW abuse at the hands of vicious communist captors, Bartleby had spent years working in the “dead letter” soul destroying compartment of the USPS prior to becoming the non-functioning dreg on society who ultimately prefered death to life. Bartleby was the ultimate passive aggressive who chose to starve himself. THAT is stretching the analogy beyond applicability unless to say that McCain will starve himself to death by turning away the conservative vote. McCain “would prefer not to” be a conservative. He would prefer having none of that support, ever desiring the progressive liberal.

Hm…
