Caption for the (Early) Birthday Boy

Courtesy of yet another desperate e-mail from Barack Obama's campaign asking us to donate more money for a chance to hang with Barack... in his house... on his b-day August 4th... YIPPEE!!

B: Girls, we donated all your birthday presents to my future election campaign
but on the bright side, we're going to let you eat cake!   Does that sound FUN?

M:  Ooooh, yeah... about that.   The cake's actually fake.   It's made up of plastic
but maybe we can talk Mrs. Ayers into whipping up a nice fruit & veggie tray!

Another attempt to shore up his cult of personality. Too late. It's crumbling.

July 24, 2012 at 05:12 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


People still faint at Obama campaign events. Now its from him being late and keeping people standing around in the heat while he plays the back nine, watches basketball or plans the next family vacay.

July 24, 2012 at 07:51 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

What? He plays a lot of golf? ;-)

Does he cheat on his scorecard like Clinton does?

Barack: Now listen girls, it's time you understand the world. Whenever you see white, as you do on the cake frosting, you must invoke racism. If you and the media can keep doing that, maybe someday daddy can get elected President.

What the hell?!?

The Obama administration will open public lands in six Western states to more solar projects as part of a solar energy road map it publicized Tuesday.

The Interior Department set aside 285,000 acres in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Utah for the initiative. Firms can apply for waivers to develop projects on an additional 19 million acres.

They can't really be this stupid, can they? BTW, 19 million acres is about the size of South Carolina.

July 24, 2012 at 21:09 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

Stupid, no. Ignorant and yet deceitful, yes.

Ken "Dime Store Cowboy" Salazar never gives up, insisting with every breath that we learn to know him as a man who has it as his life's work to be wrong about everything. In other words, a perfect Obama apparatchik.

Not quite a "Macaca" moment for the Romney campaign, but close. In London today, a Romney aide suggested that Mr Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr Obama, whose father was from Africa.

"We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special," the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: "The White House didn't fully appreciate the shared history we have".

Sometimes Republicans let their guard down and say what they're really thinking. But its a campaign and I'd say that advisor will fall on his sword and be gone by the end of the day.

July 25, 2012 at 16:26 | Registered CommenterChoy Lee Mu


Read your history; the reference to our "special history" goes back oh' 400 years and covers a few wars that we fought against and with each other. Btw, shipping Churchill's bust back to Britain on Obama’s first day in office was an insult that that the Brits haven't forgotten but just in another long line of low-class Obama moments we've all had to endure. I hope the first thing Romney does in the WH next January 2013 is ask for the Churchill bust back and respectfully apologize to the Brits for the low-class a-hole that preceded him.

July 25, 2012 at 17:05 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Really? Replacing a bust of a foriegn leader in the Oval Office with bust of one of the most well respected Presidents in US History is somehow offensive to Redbeard? And Romney should apologize to the United Kingdon for putting a bust of Abraham Lincoln in the oval office?

And actually the bust of Churchill isn't even back in Britain. It's in the Brittish embassy in Washington.

Maybe Romney should put God Save the Queen on our money so as show our special Anglo-Saxon bond.

July 25, 2012 at 18:22 | Registered Commenterkwawk

The British embassy is soverign British territory so all parties to the "where is Winston?" question are right.

July 25, 2012 at 18:38 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Only a true idiot, or a leftie (but I repeat myself), could possibly fail to understand and appreciate the special relationship between the U.K. and the U.S.

By the way, Choy/Brent, Tom and I are actually two different people. Do try to keep up.

Rahm Emmanuel rejects Chick-Fil-A "not Chicago values.' Welcomes Farrakhan’s help on violence.

Kind of says it all huh? If you’re for traditional marriage, your not good enough for Chicago. But a black racist, anti-Semite hate spewing bigot is welcomed. And the dems wonder why we all sit back watch a once great party go down the toilet.

July 26, 2012 at 08:57 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

I wonder if Emmanuel realizes "Chicago values" means something entirely different to the rest of the country.

July 26, 2012 at 09:26 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

Earlier today I saw a quip posted somewhere, saying that Chick-Fil-A is being shunned for saying that they believe exactly what Obama said he believed six months ago.

Lefties are so entertaining.

July 26, 2012 at 09:55 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Lefties are so entertaining.

And oh so tolerant of views they disagree with.

July 26, 2012 at 10:11 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

It's funny. Extremist shitheads hate it when anyone takes notice they're bigots, so you might think they could hold themselves back from calling a fifty year old Commander in Chief "boy." You might think that. But you'd be wrong because they can't.

July 26, 2012 at 10:45 | Registered CommenterWinston

Oh, good grief! Now, in Winnie's diseased brain, the very old terminology of "birthday boy" to refer to ANYONE having a birthday is RAAAAAAcist.

Winnie, are you really that stupid? Cultural ignorance can't explain this one. How did you ever get past the tying-your-own-shoes stage with so little on the ball?

July 26, 2012 at 10:54 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

And along comes Winston to demonstrate the love affair Leftists have with race-baiting in a lame attempt to silence those who disagree with them.

July 26, 2012 at 11:13 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

So "birthday boy" when applied to an African-American is racist? That jumps right to the front of the line of the dumbest f**king thing I'll hear for some time.

July 26, 2012 at 11:24 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

“Obama told the audience that "AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals."

President Clueless surely knows that U.S. soldiers don’t use AK-47’s and that they are the preferred weapon of terrorists and old Soviet hanger-ons?

President Corpseman...gun salesman of the year

July 26, 2012 at 13:31 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

I assume we have a case of cluelessness combined with a crafty gun control agenda of the "never let a good crisis go to waste" variety.

As for the AK-47 comment, The Lightbringer couldn't name one functional difference between the autoloading (not automatic) AK-47 and any autoloading hunting rifle, because there are no differences in function.

Ignorance and left-wing dogma make for a dangerous political combination.

July 26, 2012 at 13:32 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Hey, while I'm thinking of it, I do believe that it's racist to call that little fat guy the Pillsbury DoughBOY.

Blowing out birthday candles is degrading to women because it involves "blowing"

(Oh man, I needed a good laugh today too)

Long week and my vacation officially officially begins in 1 hour...

"Romney 'Looking Forward to the Bust of Winston Churchill Being in the Oval Office Again"

I swear I'm not a Romney advisor.

July 26, 2012 at 16:15 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

White birthday cake = Eurocentric symbol of racist oppression

July 26, 2012 at 17:16 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

Those candles and blue string icing on the cake to the newly "trained eye" look a lot like torches and a noose!

July 26, 2012 at 18:25 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Marble cakes makes me feel all conflicted inside. Why can't they just put white cake on one side and chocolate cake on the other? Why do they have to integrate it all into one flavor? Ruins everything!!

July 27, 2012 at 00:15 | Registered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Did you know that the Brothers Grimm and Walt Disney were racially obsessed and conflicted, just like Winnie? It's true. How else can we explain the fact that they went out of their way to tell us that Snow WHITE had BLACK hair? Obvious racial overtones there.

July 27, 2012 at 06:38 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

Just remembered something. I called my cousin a "boy" a few months ago, and he tried to correct me. Not because his racial makeup is the same as Obama's (something that never seems to concern him in the slightest) but because he thinks that 16-year-old kids should be considered adults. That's an argument that makes a bit of sense, even though I disagree, unlike Winnie's imbecility.

In addition, the boy can still be "one of the boys" once he grows up, whether he's 21 or 61, and once a year he can be the birthday boy. In the sane world, the one with which Winnie has no familiarity, not everything is a racial issue.

Every time you cut into a cake you're committing a hate crime.

July 27, 2012 at 07:40 | Unregistered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Every time you cut into a cake you're committing a hate crime.

Yes, but it's agonizing to try to solve the problem. Do we segregate the cake and declare it a member of a protected class, or do we call for a ban on cake knives?

July 27, 2012 at 07:59 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard

White flour and white eggs with white milk blended with sugar and topped off with white icing’. It's just a white man's world!!

July 27, 2012 at 08:02 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Snow should be ashamed of itself. And coal, well, what can we say?

July 27, 2012 at 08:31 | Registered CommenterRedBeard

Yes, but it's agonizing to try to solve the problem. Do we segregate the cake and declare it a member of a protected class, or do we call for a ban on cake knives?

No, too hateful... better to just have the government issue a ban on birthdays.

Michael Bloomberg can be the new Birthday Czar.

July 27, 2012 at 08:50 | Unregistered Commenterskinnydipinacid

Nurse Bloomie will only ban birthday parties of more than 15 people. You can have two parties with 15 guests each, but not one party with 30 guests, because... er... because... well, just because.

July 27, 2012 at 09:34 | Registered CommenterRedBeard

As Obama points to that cake he's saying " yeah about 1.5%."

July 27, 2012 at 11:08 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Did Obama buy carbon credits to offset those birthday candles?

Are you guys having fun watching Romney bungle his way through his trip to London? Lol, of course not. You only get news from group think approved mediums like Fox so I'll tell you what happened. First, Romney insulted pretty much the entire country by expressing doubt that the Brits were ready to handle the Olympics. Next he forgot Ed Miliband's name (kind of important to a candidate building foriegn policy credentials). It's like Romney is picking up right where Bush awkwardly left off.

The Sun had the meanest headline: "Mitt the Twit". But the Telegraph had the most accurate description:

It’s official: Britain doesn’t like Mitt Romney. Papers on Left and Right have concluded that his string of unfortunate gaffes confirms his oddness, while the government has reacted to his insinuation that we couldn’t organise a booze up in a brewery with wounded indignation. Boris Johnson told a 60,000 strong crowd in Hyde Park, “I hear there is a guy called Mitt Romney who wants to know whether we’re ready. Are we ready? Are we ready? Yes we are!” What will happen if this “guy” wins the presidential election? Presumably, he won’t be inviting the Mayor of London to the White House anytime soon.

The funny thing is, American's don't like either. The next stop on Romney's gaffe train will be Israel. I'm sure hilarity will ensue.

July 27, 2012 at 13:13 | Registered CommenterChoy Lee Mu

I swear I'm not a Romney advisor.

Well, yeah, interesting. Actually I’d been wondering if you’re his campaign manager, Tom; to say the candidate’s making a horrifying, want-to-look-away-but-can’t wreckage of his charm offensive abroad is, uh, something of an understatement. (At this point you stop on a dime whining about the damage that insufficiently Anglo-Saxon President is doing to Our Special Alliance, and ask who gives a rat’s a** what those dippy foreign twits think anyway. Pretty predictable stuff.)

I do enjoy Clueless Plutocrat trying to butch it up with his swaggering tough talk. Kind of a monumental task, innit, when you own a f***ing dancing horse? I'm gonna say "hopeless."

Can you say that word? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

July 27, 2012 at 13:22 | Registered CommenterWinston

Let the Gaffes Begin!

July 27, 2012 at 13:23 | Registered CommenterWinston

That's good stuff, guys. Let me know if Romney starts bowing to foreign dignitaries, mkay?

July 27, 2012 at 13:54 | Registered CommenterMachiavelli

Let the Gaffes Begin!

Of course Romney spent the rest of the day backtracking his comments and apologizing because he had a uncomfortable meeting with Prime Minister Cameron later that day.

Omg, doesn't that mean Romney is going around the world apologizing? Too funny.

July 27, 2012 at 14:05 | Registered CommenterChoy Lee Mu

"In today's press briefing, White House spokesman Jay Carney was unable to identify the capital of Israel:"

You know the guy who speaks for the president can't i.d a critical foreign capital. I would use the term amateurs to define this administration but that would convey too much gravitas.

With the knowledge that the Q2 GDP was going to be a horrible number the MSM along with the WH spins up "controversies" like Chic-fil-A and the London Olympics to take our eye off how crappy this economy is. With the July unemployment numbers coming out in about ten days what next libs? Mt. Rushmore is a racist symbol because no black men are up there? Why not take one Prez off, say Lincoln and make room for Obama? No? Your a racist. There you go.
