  1. Let’s hope 4chan doesn’t hear about this.

  2. I feel like I haven’t seen enough news about what the Obamas are having for breakfast, or what type of transportation they are using to get to DC. What does the President-Elect take in his coffee? The historians are going to need this information.

  3. The other night i had a dream that i was standing by the locker room door when Obama ran out onto the field to be inaugurated. I gave him a high five, handed him a flier i’d grabbed from somewhere, and asked him to autograph it. He wrote a long, sarcastic screed about how he really didn’t have time to be signing autographs, and signed it, “B.”

    Sometimes you get the cheap bourbon, sometimes the cheap bourbon gets you.

  4. Today has been named a national day of community service. Tomorrow’s speech is said to focus on our responsibility to help out. Reason’s idea that Obama wouldn’t be all bad was dead wrong. Ownership of my own body is what libertarianism is supposed to be about. Apparently not to the cocktail circuit whores Nick’s rounded up to destroy what used to be a decent magazine.

  5. Let’s hope 4chan doesn’t hear about this.

    Oh, let’s hope they do. Or Something Awful.

    I have noticed, while grocery shopping, the nauseatingly wet sloppy blowjobs that Time and Newsweek, etc. are giving Obama. I mean, unbelievably hagiographic and repulsive. It literally turns my stomach.

    I cannot wait for him to fuck them over. They deserve it solely for being colossal suck-ups. Fuck do I hate hero-worship.

  6. Epi,

    So they can publish house editorials and long cover features about how they were suckered in by the hype surrounding a man who is more of the same old thing?

  7. You know what really make me want to punch someone in the teeth? All the stories in the news and newspapers gushing about ‘dem common folk going to the inauguration.

    What makes even more irritating is that I’m seeing this crap in Canadian newspapers. And it will be some twat smiling next to a picture of the new top bureaucrat saying, ‘oh I don’t know much about politics, but I saw him on Jay Leno and I just loved him’ And then the motherfuckers have the audacity to turn that into a news story, and not some small human interest piece at the back, this is a half-to-full-page story at the front, first or second page. Jesus has returned, and his name is Obama.

  8. And then the motherfuckers have the audacity to turn that into a news story

    The fact that it isn’t limited to Canada makes me want to punch someone in the teeth.

  9. I’m bursting with pride. America has finally elected its first half-white president.

  10. You know what Obama should do at the inauguration? They should put some glass just under the surface of the reflecting pool, and after he gets sworn in, he should walk across the water. Awesome. Take that, David Copperfield.

  11. I have noticed, while grocery shopping, the nauseatingly wet sloppy blowjobs that Time and Newsweek, etc. are giving Obama. I mean, unbelievably hagiographic and repulsive. It literally turns my stomach.

    Yes. His iconography is supremely creepy, and the fact that most people see nothing wrong with it seems like a terrible sign to me.

    I cannot wait for him to fuck them over. They deserve it solely for being colossal suck-ups. Fuck do I hate hero-worship.

    Obama would have to eat live babies in the Rose Garden for the fawning class to stop worshipping him.

  12. You know what Obama should do at the inauguration? They should put some glass just under the surface of the reflecting pool, and after he gets sworn in, he should walk across the water. Awesome. Take that, David Copperfield.

    Holy shit, I just had a fantastic idea for a movie: an Uri Gellar-type magician runs for president, doing stupid tricks during campaign speeches and telling people that he’ll use his psychic powers to fix everything. It’ll end with him learning a valuable lesson about honesty, I think.

  13. Obama would have to eat live babies in the Rose Garden for the fawning class to stop worshipping him.

    No, I don’t think so. They are so taken with him that it will take time, but disappointment after disappointment will pile up and then suddenly–BAM–they’ll turn on him.

    It’s kind of like what you do to your girlfriends, Warty.

    Holy shit, I just had a fantastic idea for a movie

    It’s already been made.

  14. It’s kind of like what you do to your girlfriends, Warty.

    That’s why you should only bang fatties. They let you get away with anything.

  15. That’s why you should only bang fatties. They let you get away with anything.

    No, dude. You don’t have to bang fatties. Just girls with really, really low self-esteem. Just tell them they’re fat. Even if they’re in good shape, it just kills them inside. You can’t lose!

  16. Even better if you pick them up cruising the AA circuit?

  17. Hillary is a fatty. Just saying.

  18. No, dude. Anorexia support group.

  19. Yeah, alcoholics tend to throw things. Anorexics just cry and tell themselves that they’re worthless. But no matter what, you should make sure to find a girl whose daddy wasn’t around when she was growing up.

  20. warty, you make me want to do evil.

  21. But no matter what, you should make sure to find a girl whose daddy wasn’t around when she was growing up

    Or when daddy doesn’t pay attention. Getting back at daddy by imitating porn actresses is a good way to get his attention. Really. Trust me, sweetheart–I have your best interests at heart. And I love you.

  22. also, epi helps.

  23. They are so taken with him that it will take time, but disappointment after disappointment will pile up and then suddenly–BAM–they’ll turn on him.

    Indeed. Remember what Time et al were writing about Bush circa October 2001?

  24. Most disgustingly of all, is that the worshippers excuse themselves with “but the Bushtards did the same fawning back in 2004!” Funny, I don’t remember that.

  25. The other night i had a dream that i was standing by the locker room door when Obama ran out onto the field to be inaugurated. I gave him a high five, handed him a flier i’d grabbed from somewhere, and asked him to autograph it. He wrote a long, sarcastic screed about how he really didn’t have time to be signing autographs, and signed it, “B.”

    I think your dream is a harbinger of the future…lol

    But anyways, it is possible to ignore the Obama lovefest. What do you expect from Time and Newsweek, real news…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Heck, all of last week i totally forgot Obama Day was coming.

  26. “Obama would have to eat live babies in the Rose Garden for the fawning class to stop worshipping him.”

    Sorry, but the media and the Obababots are in a full-on left-wing circle jerk and no one is going to stop pulling each other’s taffy for just anything. The backpeddaling has started; the media is already making excuses for him and explaining why he won’t be able to live up to the expectations he created. I doubt anything short of President Hopey-Changey banning rap music and welfare will get the masses riled up enough to question the Dear Leader now.
