SALAD DODGER ENDORSES SALAD CANDIDATE

Michael Moore – who supported Ralph Nader in 2000 (then later claimed to have been a Gore Democrat) and backed Wesley Clark in 2004 – now urges his remaining fans to vote for Obama:

If you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor? Will you please cast my vote—and yours—on Tuesday for Senator Barack Obama?

The slender – and ominously cashed up – Arugulan American and Big Mac Mikey; they’re an odd duo. Then again, Maximum Mike earns that description all by himself, which may explain why he requests two votes. The double-wide documentarian is no longer a fan of Mrs Bill:

Over the past two months, the actions and words of Hillary Clinton have gone from being merely disappointing to downright disgusting.

Disgusting? She’s still got a way to go before matching Much Moore. It’s too bad Democrats don’t have the option of voting for Chelsea Clinton, lately described by one Philadelphia admirer as having “the ass of life”.

    1. The Democrats go trawling for votes at gay and lesbian bars.  The Republicans go to veteran conventions and church meetings.  Pretty much shows the difference between the two parties.

    1. Michael Moore Speaks
      to His Public Via
      His Spokesman Lyle:
      They peddled all our Secrets,
      Sold favors to their donors,
      And shamed our highest office
      With presidential boners.They left us unprotected
      From those who want us dead;
      Despite this, I’ve decided
      To back Barack instead.

      Though they are despicable,
      Ms Rodham and the whore,
      I say, Vote Obama:
      He hates this country more.

    1. I must correct you, sir.
      The article clearly states that the Philadelphia homosexual denizen thought that Hillary had the “ass of life”.
      Which she may well have; I know I don’t have it.
      The article states in another place that some woman grabbed Chelsea’s ass during her nocturnal politicking.
      Any way you look at it, there’s far too much intrusion of ass into our plitical system.

    1. Chelsea was mobbed by local gays and lesbians … “I grabbed her ass,” one young woman exclaimed to her friends after snapping a picture with her arm around the former first daughter.

      ‘Man-handling’ the former US President’s daughter?
      Get that, Aunty?
      Or is that acceptable behaviour cos they’re same-sex (read: both wymmin), even if of different preference in partners?

    1. Comment from MSNBC link:

      Educated gay men don’t buy the slice and dice Clinton politics that pits African Americans against gays and lesbians.  Obama bravely took the African-American community to task for its homophobia in his speech at Ebeneezer church in Atlanta.  This trumps Clinton’s warmed over ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ compromised rights philosophy.

      Gays for Obama.

      The Left plays wedge politics?
      I thought Howard was always accused of that by the Oz Left.

      Folks, Bryla has pretty much come out of the closet.  In spite of his, ummmm, “Christian” beliefs, our good friend is in fact a hater.

      It’s simple, really.

      Bryla supports Obama.

      Bryla agrees that Obama is the “No. 1 choice of America’s enemies”.

      Thus, Bryla agrees with America’s enemies, which makes him an enemy of America.  A laughable one, mind you, and not worth the price of a round of 5.56mm ammo.  But an enemy nonetheless.

      Enemies, with very rare exception, hate each other.  As Bryla is an enemy of America, he hates America.

      Somewhat simplistic, perhaps.  But still valid, I think.

    1. TRJ, I don’t agree that Obama is an “enemy” of the USA, I just didn’t want to quibble.

      To become President, Obama is going to need a majority vote from those American citizens who can be bothered.  Are they all “enemies” too?

      In my Christian life I’m strongly attracted to the life and example of Martin Luther King Jr.  I notice Obama is too.

      I don’t hate America.  I love it.  It’s only the myopic and bloody foreign policy and domestic policies of the militarist greed-heads that give me the shits, and I follow MLK’s example that those forces will be defeated by the goodwill and thirst for justice of the majority of ordinary Americans.

      One manifestation of which will be President Obama from 2009-2017.

    1. Bryla,
      America’s foreign and defense policies, and the civil and military forces to implement them, are what have stood between freedom and tyranny since 1941.  Freedom would have been crushed without US willingness to do the messy stuff that you so deplore.  No doubt you would have made your peace with the Commissars, Nazi or Communist, and parroted their lies like a good little boy, had we not stood for freedom but rather let things drop.And if you doubt that I speak truly, compare those we saved from tyranny with those we were not able to save.  Start by comparing South Korea with North Korea.In an age where armed doctrines are on the march, doctrines that will kill millions for being classified as abstract enemies, Jews or Kulaks or Hereditary Enemies of the People (a Maoist classification) or Kufr, and tyrannize billions more, pacifism and the refusal to support the fight against tyranny are immoral.

    1. TRJ, I don’t agree that Obama is an “enemy” of the USA, I just didn’t want to quibble.

      That’s not what I said, Bryla.  That’s a pathetic attempt to backtrack.  And I wasn’t quibbling either.

      To become President, Obama is going to need a majority vote from those American citizens who can be bothered.  Are they all “enemies” too?

      Two points.  First, I referred to “America’s enemies”, just as you did.  I did not intend to refer to those who vote for him, as I was speaking to YOU, and because you aren’t American.  But, yeah, I could have said that better.

      Second, Obama needs to win a majority of the Electoral College, not a majority of voters.  If you’re going to support Obama, you’d best know the rules he’s dealing with, lest you be disappointed.

      In my Christian life I’m strongly attracted to the life and example of Martin Luther King Jr.  I notice Obama is too.

      And your point is?  That you and Obama are soul mates?  That you heart him?  We knew that, but whatever.

      BTW, the phrase “in my [insert term] life…” generally refers to something that is separate and distinct from your normal life.  For example, “In my other life, I am a volunteer fire fighter.”

      So when you say “In my Christian life….”, it implies that there are times when you are not Christian.  Is that what you meant, or did you just bang on the keyboard too fast?

      I don’t hate America.  I love it.  It’s only the myopic and bloody foreign policy and domestic policies of the militarist greed-heads that give me the shits, and I follow MLK’s example that those forces will be defeated by the goodwill and thirst for justice of the majority of ordinary Americans.

      I disagree, you *do* hate America, as it is, because you want the world to suit your narcissistic little soul.  You just want to change America into something that fits your fantasy world.  Which would not be America, by definition.

      And I strongly suspect that MLK would have punched Obama squarely in the nose, for being the hollow shell that he is.

      One manifestation of which will be President Obama from 2009-2017.

      Perhaps.  I rather doubt it, given his recent faux pas, and the earlier revelations about his, ummmmm, less than sterling character.  But if it makes you feel better, assert away.  It costs me nothing, and I might have the chance for some amusement at your expense next November.

      Most every time that Tim posts something ominous or negative about Obama’s chances to win the nomination (let alone the election), comments that have truth in them, in you pop, and drop a “No, no, Obama is going to win!!!!!” sort of comment.  No proof on your part, just assertions and emotional reactions.

      It’s like you’re trying to convince yourself, and not us, with lots of positive reinforcement.  Interesting, eh?

    1. Bryla is an enemy of the US, and of Australia.

      The proof is in his allegedly “pacifist” protest actions. He and his cronies only protest against Australia and its allies—never against the violence of our enemies.

      Of course I’m active in Australia, and concerned with how my own country behaves.  That is the duty of a citizen.

      Australia’s alliance with the USA is a legitmate aspect of our behaviour to address and seek to modify.

      Peace is promoted through the pursuit of justice at home, and just relations with our neighbours.  Evil is defeated through non-compliance, and the implementation of just relations.

      Hate and fear are poisons to be avoided.

    1. Bryla old fruit,

      Lefties such as yourself have targeted the US no matter who was in the White House. It has been that way since Harry Truman stood up to Stalin over the Berlin blockade.  Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush #1, Clinton and Bush #2 – all have been abused and accused by the left in Australia. I’m old enough to recall the left’s bitter hatred of JFK because of Cuba and Vietnam. Today’s left-wing moonbat Jimmy Carter was once reviled simply for being the president of the US. Carter controlled Pine Gap during a time when many lefties blamed the CIA for Whitlam’s dismissal.

      So don’t pull this “it’s only the myopic and bloody foreign policy and domestic policies of the militarist greed-heads that give me the shits” unless you are saying every president in the past 60 years fits the bill. If that’s the case then you damning a whole country because Americans have voted in those people 15 times in a row.

More seriously, nobody’s saying that Carter = Reagan = Clinton = Bush by any objective standards, just that lefties from the crowd that you tend to travel among are so deluded and so far left-of-center that those four guys apparently look functionally identical to them, as inferred from their reactions over the past few decades.

      That, or it really isn’t about the Presidents themselves, but rather about some good oldfashioned anti-America hate regardless of the personalities involved. So, what’s your assessment of the crowd you’re running with; are they merely politically myopic or are they fundamentally bigoted?
