We are all Rosa Parks Republicans now

Posted by danishova on October 26, 2010

From the Associated Press:

[Obama] said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

So, in one short, revealing paragraph Massa Barack manages to:

1.  Use the sort of violent imagery that Sarah Palin was excoriated for when she used the word, “reload”.

2.  Harken back to his Joe the Plumber days of wealth-redistribution schemes by using the metaphor of having middle class families move to the front seat.

3. Treat Republicans like Rosa Parks, insisting that we have to ride in the back of the bus.

Meanwhile, in keeping with his much-heralded post-racial tone, Massa Obama is stirring the pot, pleading with prospective Latino voters to “punish their enemies”. No word on whether Barack, the Jim Crow Democrat, will demand that we second class citizens have separate water coolers, slurpee or latte stands.

Paging Bill Maher: Did Obama Dabble in Hare Krishna?

Obama shows off Hanuman monkey god.

Bill Maher has tried to shock us, but has mostly entertained us, with news that Christine O’Donnell dabbled in Hare Krishna but gave it up because, as she quipped:

"I would have become a Hare Krishna, but I didn’t want to become a vegetarian. And that is honestly the reason why, because I’m Italian and I love meatballs."

Om, I mean, um, a quick scan of the internets reveals that Barack Obama carried a Hanuman trinket with him for “good luck” during the 2008 campaign.  The text accompanying a Time Magazine photo reveals:

Amongst the things that Barack Obama carries for good luck are a bracelet belonging to a soldier deployed in Iraq, a gamblers lucky chit, a tiny monkey god and a tiny Madonna and child.

This was welcome news to the worldwide Hindu community, who rejoiced and sent a large monkey-god sculpture to Obama as a token of their appreciation.

"We have heard that he carries a small monkey charm in his pocket. So he is a devotee of Hanuman. That’s why we want to present him with this idol," he said.

Mr Bhama and his friends have also invited Carolyn Sauvage-Mar, chairwoman of the group, Democrats Abroad-India, to a meeting they are holding on Tuesday to pray for Mr Obama’s success.

The Delhi-based group registers voters, sponsors events and occasionally hosts Democratic Party leaders visiting India.

No word as to whether this voter registration group is affiliated with International ACORN, but I digress.

Reuters has video of this story:

And Al Gore’s Current TV was on it with the headline:

Obama turns to Hanuman (Hindu Monkey God) for blessing

Elsewhere, Gaura Vani, a Hare Krishna musician, performed in honor of Barack:

…to a jubilantly dancing crowd at the Church of the Holy City in Washington, D.C., who had gathered to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration.

Alas, rumors that Obama chanted Hare Krishna cannot be verified because the video is no longer available “due to a copyright claim from Sony ASV publishing”.  No doubt Bill Maher is sorely disappointed that he can’t get his hands on this vid ‘cause he is nothing if not fair and balanced.

And as far as we know, Obama, whose preference as husband of the Health Nut Czarina is not for meatballs but for 5 Guys Cheeseburgers, never gave up meat either.  I’m sure there’s a joke there somewhere, one so bad it could bring down the White House, which has had to deal with “the toughest times any president could face”, but has not yet endured anything as challenging as the devastating mockery of Bill Maher.
