    • America Defeats Germany Again
      There’s a good article in Der Spiegel on the German energy/industrial crisis which is worth your time. Basically industries which have high energy costs are being crushed. In particular this means chemical and automotive, both big in Germany, but extends far further. (Indeed, the chemical industry was essentially invented by Germany in the 19th century, and […]

Presidential candidate or biological hazard?

Has anyone read the San Francisco Chronicle’s endorsement of Obama? It is a seriously weird endorsement. These people aren’t supporting a candidate. They are carrying a torch. They are infatuated. And we all know what happens with infatuations.

But this paragraph has to be the strangest one I’ve seen as far as endorsements go:

He radiated the sense of possibility that has attracted the votes of independents and tapped into the idealism of young people during this campaign. He exuded the aura of a 46-year-old leader who could once again persuade the best and the brightest to forestall or pause their grand professional goals to serve in his administration.

Radiation and exudation? Maybe it’s just the geek in me but that just reached out and oozed on me.  Oh, he “flourishes” too, sort of like a yeast infection. Here, let me give it a try.  How about, “He’s a veritable aerosol of Hope!” “Spreading Change is his most notable ability” “He transmits a certain optimism” “He is the carrier of our voice!”

I don’t know whether I should vote for him on Tuesday or make an appointment to get tested. The Chronicle is swapping spit with Obama big time. It’s going to take Hillary’s healthcare plan to treat everyone.

Jeez, guys, get a room.

  1. Speaking of, did you realize cloned animals have no souls, hence no auras?

    And do you know the consequences of ingested cloned meat?

    From the Great Orange Satan, an expert’s view, complete with FAQ:

  2. Hillarious! She’s probably one of the people who insisted that GM corn caused the die off of the Honeybee population and thinks that thimerosol causes autism.
    Hey, as long as it’s tender, medium rare and smothered in mushrooms, I’d eat a steak from a cloned cow.
