So, Maybe the Part About Barry Wearing a Dress is Accurate…

I thought I was sensitive, but then I read about the reaction to The New Yorker kover featuring Barry and wife, and I realized that Barack Obama and his supporters have the emotional maturity of a bunch of 3rd grade girls.

It’s kalled satire people. The whole point of it is to point out absurdity. The New Yorker is not actually kalling him a Muslim or his wife a militant feminazi. They’re making fun of the people who do think that. What’s he going to do when someone actually kriticizes him for real?

How would he like to be Pres. Bush? There are political kartoons about him all the time saying outrageous things, like that he’s ambivalent about, or is even happy about, our soldiers dying at war. Basically, he’s made out to be a murderer on a daily basis (which I think is totally unfair), and you don’t see him whining.

Some advice for Barry: get some thicker skin or go home. You’re playing with the big boys now, and you probably don’t want to be seen as a whiner.

Oops, too late.


  1. Obama has everyting to gain playing the victim here..

    Obama's veneer has been cracked here in recent weeks. His flip flops towards the center only have proven that instead of being "Change That We Can Believe In"...he's just like every other politician that he claimed he's wasnt like.

    McCain instead of taking the same position that Obama did..he needs to say and do exactly like Krusty did..tell Obama to grow up and brush that dirt off his shoulder.

    "It's a cartoon...I've seen and heard worse."

    That's Obama's quote on the cartoon. I hope that Krusty, being a respectable blogger, will amend the column to reflect Obama's thick skin.

  3. Who would be stupid enough pay 4.50 for an issue of the New Yorker?

  4. Truth..

    That's not what Obama's campaign said.

    “The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Senator Obama’s right wing critics have tried to create. But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree,” said Obama's spokesman.

    His campaign played the victim card immediately..and once people started calling on him to toughen up and grow a set..he starts acting like it doesn't bug him.

    Kinda like how his campaign tried to act like he was ignoring all the talk about his supposed Muslim background..but then the campaign pulls two Muslim women off of the stage at an event he was speaking at.

    So what is it? Are you the victim...or not?

  5. Agreeing that something is tasteless and offensive hardly qualifies as whining. Especially when one compares it to McCain camp's extreme sensibility to statements about him "losing his bearings" or anything else they think could somehow be connected to his factual age.
