PUMA PAC makes “The Show”

Murphy gave an interview on NECN. {{sniff}} They grow up so fast.

Funny, she doesn’t look like an old, working class, uneducated, sino-peruvian lesbian, not that there’s anything wrong with that. She looks like a youngish strawberry blonde lovely from Massachusetts with the same two apple computers that I have. Do you suppose the Obamaphiles and media people were *wrong* about us???

And now for our theme song:

In other news, Anglachel appears to be on a hiatus. Her posts are agonizingly brief. She’s had to deal with some personal issues. One is resolving itself, the other just happened. Unfortunately, her house was burgled. 😦 Send her good thots and let’s hope that this too shall pass before we start climbing the walls.

This is an open thread…

Tuesday: thump-thump-thump

under the busThat’s the sound the Obama Bus makes as it runs over the voters it has thrown under it. The latest roadkill?

American Muslims! Rep. Keith Ellison, Come On Down! From the NYTimes, Muslim Voters Detect a Snub from Obama (H/T MABlue):

As Senator Barack Obama courted voters in Iowa last December, Representative Keith Ellison, the country’s first Muslim congressman, stepped forward eagerly to help.

Mr. Ellison believed that Mr. Obama’s message of unity resonated deeply with American Muslims. He volunteered to speak on Mr. Obama’s behalf at a mosque in Cedar Rapids, one of the nation’s oldest Muslim enclaves. But before the rally could take place, aides to Mr. Obama asked Mr. Ellison to cancel the trip because it might stir controversy. Another aide appeared at Mr. Ellison’s Washington office to explain.

“I will never forget the quote,” Mr. Ellison said, leaning forward in his chair as he recalled the aide’s words. “He said, ‘We have a very tightly wrapped message.’ ”

When Mr. Obama began his presidential campaign, Muslim Americans from California to Virginia responded with enthusiasm, seeing him as a long-awaited champion of civil liberties, religious tolerance and diplomacy in foreign affairs. But more than a year later, many say, he has not returned their embrace.

I’m shocked, SHOCKED, that Barack Obama would deliberately distance himself from the Muslim community. Who could have predicted that he’d take American Muslims, throw them under the bus, take Evangelicals, put them right behind the driver’s seat…

In an interview with “60 Minutes,” Mr. Obama said the rumors were offensive to American Muslims because they played into “fearmongering.” But on a new section of his Web site, he classifies the claim that he is Muslim as a “smear.”

“A lot of us are waiting for him to say that there’s nothing wrong with being a Muslim, by the way,” Mr. Ellison said.

Oh, dear, will someone from the “old coalition” please explain to Keith how Obama operates?

Damn, it’s getting crowded under here.

One More Thing: Mary Curtis in WaPo writes about the deafening silence from feminists jumping to Michelle Obama’s defense in The Loud Silence of Feminists. No $@#^, Sherlock. Does anyone remember this from Michelle?:

Maybe we just don’t like Michelle’s “tone”.

Karma’s a bitch.
