A.k.a. Tucker didn’t know the half of it.”

Awfully sporting of him to do that little knee-bend and give ‘em a look at the package. Click the image to watch.

Life imitates family guy:

Peter: Well, Lois, I tried to express my creativity like you said. First I took an art class.
(Peter in art class; nude man is posing)
Peter: Am I supposed to draw the penis?
Peter: Then I tried sculpting.
(Peter in sculpting class; again, nude man is posing)
Peter: Am I supposed to sculpt the penis?
Peter: Then I tried music.
(Peter in music class; everything is normal)
Peter: Am I supposed to conduct with my penis?

Entire press corps must hold laptops in front of themselves when they stand up. Even the women.

Umm…gee…thanks for asking, at least.

Oh man, that knee-ned was great. I love the way he tries to look like he’s not doing it for the camera.

Enrique on May 8, 2008 at 3:26 PM

Chris M. is going to go nuts (if you excuse the pun)…

right2bright on May 8, 2008 at 3:26 PM

If he loses (especially loses big) in Nov, this summer will have been a lot of fun, watching the press tip their hands all the way to the table, never again being able to claim objectivity.

If he wins…well we’re all f’d.

Hannibal Smith on May 8, 2008 at 3:27 PM

uh, no, thanks…

All puns aside, it really is disturbing how these people swoon. Cult of Personality.

It’s worth it just to hear the women in the press in the back of the plane beg and plead for the woman standing up in the isle, blocking their view to sit down so they can marvel at Barry’s crotch.

It was noted that this is the first time the press has seen him in jeans all year. A really sad attempt to court the ‘regular guy’ image.

michaelo on May 8, 2008 at 3:33 PM

I think he dabbles in homosexual behavior. He married a rich lady so that he could have the freetime.

2. The uttering of a short, sudden exclamation or prayer, or the exclamation or prayer uttered.
3. The act of ejecting or suddenly throwing, as a fluid from a duct.
4. (biology) The forcible ejection of semen from the mammalian urethra, a reflex in response to sexual stimulation.

I just threw up a little in my mouth. What can I say except that Obama and the national press corps? Well, they deserve each other. Fortunately, those of us out here in the real world find them all a little too…fruity for our liking.

Rational Thought on May 8, 2008 at 4:05 PM

Rush had it so right when quoting a today’s New York Slimes article that said since Obama has been crowned the candidate, “now, it’s time for substance.” As Rush said :

“Now? Now?! NOW???!!! (sigh -long pause) The country is screwed.”

Marcus on May 8, 2008 at 4:07 PM

alycan1 on May 8, 2008 at 3:41 PM

Tee hee.

I’d say that Barry is inspired by history and this is what he means by “aggressive diplomacy” but I don’t think he actually knows any:

Legend has it that Edward III, king of England from 1327-1377, had the codpiece of his armor enlarged to astounding proportions because he had heard that strength and military prowess were correlated with a man’s endowment. As he was in the midst of the Hundred Years’ War with the French at the time, it would not be surprising that he would try to seek any possible advantage available to him. He then ordered that the nobility and knights do the same to their armor. The legend goes on to say that the gullible French (from the nobility all the way down to the peasantry) were scared to death by the advance of the “well-equipped” men.

Or perhaps this painting is his inspiration.

All this ‘Obama-swooning’ brings to mind the Monty Python classic, “Life of Brian” – who everyone thinks is the Messiah… such classic, fitting lines:

Brian: I’m not the Messiah! Will you please listen? I am not the Messiah, do you understand? Honestly!
Girl: Only the true Messiah denies His divinity.
Brian: What? Well, what sort of chance does that give me? All right! I am the Messiah!
Followers: He is! He is the Messiah!

Brian: Please, please, please listen! I’ve got one or two things to say.
The Crowd: Tell us! Tell us both of them!
Brian: Look, you’ve got it all wrong! You don’t NEED to follow ME, You don’t NEED to follow ANYBODY! You’ve got to think for your selves! You’re ALL individuals!
The Crowd: Yes! We’re all individuals!
Brian: You’re all different!
The Crowd: Yes, we ARE all different!
Man in crowd: I’m not…
The Crowd: Shh!

I agree, Baldilocks (by the way, you rock)..Bush is unabashedly and naturally manly, without having to flash his crotch to the media. What a low class thing to do, Obama.

The media idiots have turned this into a frickin high school class president race.

I am assuming they are all grown adults.

But I might be assuming too much.

They, and this dimbulb Barry, don’t impress me as being anywhere near fully formed adult human beings.

What a joke…

I feel trapped. This video is such inappropriate sexualization, but I want gay marriage and some college undergrad hanky-panky. How can moderation be achieved when the media wants crotch shots of presidential candidates? Or when parents dress their five year old girls like whores? This is so depressing. Is it really Oral Roberts U or a brothel?
