Is it bad when the Conserv-O-Sphere needs comic relief?

Seems to be a lot of depression and panic theses days… Some for good reason. Some for exaggerated concerns over polls… come on people Zogby only has him down by 3 and, if you think about the atmosphere, Obama should be up by, say, 15 or so. But in case you are feeling down like some of my compatriots in the Conserv-O-Sphere here’s some material to cheer you up: Hot Air found a hilarious reworking of the famous Take on Me video… even better than Family Guy. Malkin took a more political, but still hilarious, approach and found this Gem.

Kids for Obama

I recently found this site on barackobama.com It scares me. and I’ll tell you why. What Obama is doing through this site is something that authoritarian regimes do constantly. They harvest the minds of the children I suppose you could say. Or, in other words, they indoctrinate kids before they are old enough to form their own opinions on things. They create a super hero image of their leader and urge kids to engage in personality worship. All the signs are there on his Kids for Obama site… The making of a political candidate into something larger than life (you

Obama Youth take two

This time it’s more militant: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUEQz5dltmI As if the last one wasn’t Hitler-youth-y enough… (Ed Morrissey disagrees) Here’s some food for thought: “He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future” -Adolf Hitler HOLY CRAP UPDATE: You know… it’s one thing for miss guided supporters to start pawning off their kids to Obama but it’s something entirely different for a presidential campaign to actively try and recruit kids as campaign tools. But honestly this Kids for Obama initiative goes beyond that to pure indoctrination on a level that terrifies me. Read the latest on Kids for Obama

How creepy is this?

It’s the end of the world! Oh wait…

No its not. Not even close. Yea the 778 point drop in the Dow is terrible, its even the biggest point drop ever according to CNN. But that sure as heck doesn’t mean we are headed for another great depression. Consider this, while the 778 point loss is the biggest point loss in history it is only about a 7% loss. Compare that to the stock market crash of 1987 where there was a 508 point drop which accounted for a massive 22.6% loss and there was no long drawn out depression which followed that incredible crash was there? But,

Don’t they get that image is… well, everything?

Seriously. What was one of Sarah Palin’s aides thinking when they described her two day trip to Arizona in order to prepare for her upcoming showdown with Joe Biden as “Debate Camp”. The same genius also referred to Sarah Palin as “SP”, I mean come on… what is this aide thinking? Are they trying to make her look less ready to lead? When you have a candidate whose biggest criticisms are that they are too young and inexperienced how can you refer to them in such an informal way when talking to the media? If you want to refute those

The Debate… Who cares?

Well, I guess a lot of people do (Malkin even called it “a historic night“). But I don’t. And, honestly, why should I? What purpose was there in watching that boring thing? I mean, come on, what was I going to learn from last nights debate that I didn’t already know? And even for uninformed people what was there to learn last night that you couldn’t have learned in a far more accurate way from either of the campaign websites or from any number of fact checking sites? Don’t get me wrong, I love a gaffe as much as the

Congress finally gets oil drilling right, by doing nothing.

It took forever but Congress has finally caved and will not stop new drilling for off-shore oil. Good news I’d say. But, of course, as anybody who knows anything about government can tell you, there is still a mile of red tape to get through before anybody can actually go and actually drill for oil offshore. The biggest problem is in getting congress to pass a revenue sharing bill which cuts the states in on the money that drilling will enevitably bring in. Until then its doubtfull that the states will allow any drilling… But I’m hopeful. After all this
