Newsflash: Major Left-wing Blogs Abuzz With Anger

From cafepress.com

Previously peaceful rhetoric from “progressive” blogs The DailyKos and The Huffington Post turned to spiteful words for the Democratic candidates over the last week as the hopefuls held interviews with cable-news-channel-non-grata Fox News. Claiming it legitimizes what they see as right-wing media bias, the blogs aimed invective at Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for courting actual viewers. “I don’t think that it is tenable to completely neglect or ignore what your base wants,” opined Ari Melber, correspondent for The Nation, another liberal hub in the New Media, “and our base definitely doesn’t want actual people to be exposed to our true agenda.”

Clinton not a “regular” American after all

From weblogs.newsday.com

Upstaged by Hillary Clinton’s real-life antics, we temporarily pause our satirical approach to report as deadpanned-ly as possible that the sole candidate with ovaries is out of touch with the regular Americans she claims to have always been one with. Perhaps the result of having missed her morning coffee, she gaffed on an interview with Fox’s Bill O’Reilly claiming that Democrat rival Barack Obama’s involvement with his anti-American and racist pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright was not interesting to the American people (O’Reilly assured her that ratings are through the roof). She then proceeded to relate in a People magazine interview that her dream date (if approved by the philandering husband who never asked her approval for any of his own trysts) would be with a Republican (and a dead one at that). Finally, during a publicity stunt in support of her windfall profits tax proposal on Big Oil, she was forced to admit unfamiliarity with the mechanincal wonder called a gas pump, with the excuse that she hadn’t pumped her own gas in years. We won’t comment on whether it’s out of touch or not to not know what Red Bull is.

Oil profits to be punished

National Review Online - Carter-era gas lines

Americans prove they can organize according to socialistic principles (circa Jimmy Carter administration)

On reports of record oil company profits this quarter both Democrat presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and HIllary Clinton reiterated their policies to punish the American people for investing so wisely.  Their plan is first to force the oil price itself higher by limiting supply, exploration and refining possibilities, then to attack at the consumer end by imposing a “windfall profits” tax on the producers to be passed down and added to the purchase price.  Together, these two controls should bring profits down, increase dependence on foreign oil sources, and tank the retirement funds of many millions of Americans, not to mention increase the price at the pump and/or create shortages.  Liberal Democrats are reportedly excited about the prospect of reviving Jimmy Carter era gas lines as examples of American organization skill.

Obama most intelligent candidate

From foxnews.com

Reacting to press coverage, bi-racial Democrat presidential hopeful Barack Obama heartily accepted the implications of his former pastor’s explanation of the racial divide in intelligence today.  Rev. Jeremiah Wright, in a speech to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People assembly in Detroit over the weekend generalized that whites were left-brained analytically-minded folk, while blacks had a monopoly on the right-brained more creative and intuitive side of intelligence.  This theory suggests, of course, that Senator Obama, as a precisely 50/50 mixed-race individual, is the only candidate in full possession of both sides of his brain.  Senator Hillary Clinton objected that her estrogen levels more than compensated for any difference in IQ between her and her apparently double brain functioning opponent.  On the Republican side, presumptive nominee and immanently polite Senator John McCain fervently demanded Republicans not run ads taking advantage of the lack of intelligence of either of his Democrat challengers based on their choices of pastors and/or spouses.

Campaign Slogan Proxy War

From NewsBusters.org

In a final flurry of frantic campaigning on the day of the hotly contested Pennsylvania Primary, both hopefuls knock hard on each other’s campaign slogans in an effort to discredit each other’s bid for the Democrat presidential nomination.  “It’s not enough to say ‘Yes we can.’, ” decries New York Senator and recovering duck-and-cover performance artist Hillary Clinton in a direct assault on Barack Obama’s audaciously hopeful refrain, “We have to say how we can.”

Official Clinton campaign sources are reportedly mulling over the 34th change to Clinton’s own campaign slogan to capitalize on the crowd’s warm response to her attack, contemplating a move from “I’m in it to win it.” to “How can we?”  This apparent instability of message is chalked up as a strength, mirroring the rapid and revolutionary transformation of society promised by the candidate.

By contrast, staunchly firm and rigidly unwavering in his rock-solid, time-tested and changeless motto “Change we can believe in”, Obama, Senator and Trinity United Church of Christ absentee from Illinois, defended his slogan by noting how new and fresh his politics of bitterness were.  “I’m asking Pennsylvanians to believe,” he reaffirms, “in me so they don’t have to cling to guns or religion.”
