      Text of Obama Speech uncovered.

      My fellow Democratic Socialist’s I accept your nomination. Together we will move forward to the failed policies of the past. Forward, arm in arm, to defeat! Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what can your country give you for free. There is plenty of Loot left to go around. We have not yet begun to plunder and pillage. Now with your help I will lead us to the promised land. A Dog in every pot and a hand in every wallet. Let us take back what we have not earned. In the name of Marx! In the name of Mao! In the name of all freeloaders everywhere! Take back what is not your’s. And now. Forward! We are almost there! Don’t stop now! Vote! Several times! Join me as we plunge over the cliff! Remember it takes a village idiot. I am the one, the only, Barak! Hussein!! Obama!!! Thank You and Goodnight.

    There are some awesomely funny pictures over on Legal Insurrection. I <3 the one of a broken empty chair thrown in a fire pit.

  8. Perhaps America thought she was getting a Prince as our President back in 2008.

    It didn’t happen.

    I suspect Mr. Clint Eastwood is having a rather satisfyingly American type of Labor Day today. God bless him for completely perfect timing, in all aspects. The Ultimate American, Who Built It Himself.

  15. cajunkelly says:

    OK, got mine staged and ready. Up against a brick wall of the house….one Greek column has fallen over on the ground, the other one has fallen over on the old bottomless chair.

    Just waitin on DH to get home.

  16. cajunkelly says:

    He didn’t just leave, he was ejected.

  17. ctdar says:

      Biden is there too. peeking from behind the Panther on the right.

    • Ad rem says:

      Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha….I can see this ain’t gonna end any time soon! :lol:

    • landaumurphyfan says:

      Now THAT one is BRILLIANT! Especially now that we know (thanks, Howie) that Biden is there too. :-D :-D

      Seriously, though, who knew that after all those years of being a movie hero who triumphed over the forces of darkness with his wits and his guns, Clint Eastwood’s ultimate “hero” role would come when, as an octogenarian, he used improv humour to cut Obama down to size and, in so doing, gave Americans permission to see the creature as he really is? If someone had asked you six months ago to guess what “Eastwooding” on the Net might mean, would you ever have guessed that it would be a synonym for subversive use of a humorous metaphor? He hung Obama’s flaws and failures right out there in the open for everyone to see, and all I can say is hang ‘em high, Clint, hang ‘em high.

      Tula that is totally perfect from Les Miserables, Marius singing “Empty chairs at Empty tables,” very emotional scence from their revolution.

      Like to include the lyrics, if you don’t mind:

      [Marius, recovering from his wounds, imagines he's back at the ABC cafe.]

      There’s a grief that can’t be spoken
      There’s a pain goes on and on
      Empty chairs at empty tables
      Now my friends are dead and gone
      Here they talked of revolution
      Here it was they lit the flame
      Here they sang about tomorrow
      And tomorrow never came.

      From the table in the corner
      They could see a world reborn
      And they rose with voices ringing
      I can hear them now!
      The very words that they had sung
      Became their last communion
      On the lowly barricade..At dawn.

      Oh my friends, my friends forgive me.

      [The ghosts of those who died on the barricade appear.]

      That I live and you are gone
      There’s a grief that can’t be spoken
      There’s a pain goes on and on
      Phantom faces at the window
      Phantom shadows on the floor
      Empty chairs at empty tables
      Where my friends will meet no more.
      [The ghosts fade away.]

      Oh my friends, my friends, don’t ask me
      What your sacrifice was for
      Empty chairs at empty tables
      Where my friends will sing no more…

    Check this out! Victoria Jackson posted it on Facebook. Hurray for the troops!


  26. Here’s ours…too rainy out to do anything fun with it so I just slapped it on out there!


    • WeeWeed says:

      :D!!! Everybody did so well, didn’t they?? Yer grass is green – we are jealous (ours is muerte.)

      • cajunkelly says:

        Weed, our grass is green and NEEDS MOWING! after all that rain. Maybe by Tuesday it’ll be dry enough.

        • WeeWeed says:

          I noticed!!! :D Thank God some parts of our nation are getting the much needed rain!!

          • cajunkelly says:

            DH wanted to try mowing today. I told him NYET! Not on your holiday off.

            We were *supposed* to go to Red Lobster tonight, but aw shucks, tonight is when his office does their fantasy football league draft.

            Boss threatened to kick his arse if he did auto draft, so here I iz…watching Clint movies and goofin’ off, and hopin’ the “left side” of my neighborhood doesn’t figure out my yard art. :)

            Sad ain’t it.

  27. Oh, and the kids and I were at the KMart a little bit ago and came across this in the book section:


  28. Aoife Crane says:

    We’re hearing that busloads of college students and parishoners from black churches are going to be bussed in to help fill up the empty seats. You know if the RNC had had to bus in people the press would have been all over it. This is going to be so funny.

  29. stellap says:

    Huge thunderstorms – torrential rain and wind – this evening in Charlotte.


  30. Chevymisty says:

    I have a friend who is rather intelligent but sadly from the liberal parts of Washington state. Thinks Bill Maher is great and that O’ Riley and Beck lie to every one and are clowns. Came right out today and told Me Clint’s speech was horrendous and Romney’s even worse. I Don’t argue with him anymore because well its like arguing with a brick wall honestly and I don’t want to ruin my friendship with him cause other than the fact that he thinks Jimmy Carter is the best thing to ever happen to this country….hes a good guy. Now to the point. Well I go over there today as its his birthday and he has a broken Empty chair on his porch…I almost broke out laughing wondering if he even knows what that means today. I am sure he doesn’t…but I thought it was great.

    • stellap says:

      That’s funny! Too bad you couldn’t get a photo without him knowing.

      • chevymisty says:

        I could have…I just didn’t think about it till I got home.

        • stellap says:

          Isn’t it too bad that we are the ones who can’t express our opinions so that we don’t have an argument? I have had that situation in the past with my daughter and SIL, but I am getting less afraid to express my opinion as time goes by. I don’t go out of my way to be confrontational, but I don’t shut up when I hear something I disagree with either.

          • chevymisty says:

            I am just not good at arguing…or even friendly debate. I know my stuff I just have a hard time putting it into words. Then I sit there and think as well…why waste my breath…it wont change their minds and they wont change mine. Hes 53 I am 29…He wont listen to me anyway. I haven’t “seen” what he has. We agree on a lot of things politically but he is still a liberal and I am still a conservative.

            • allhail2 says:

              I’m so sick of the left BS, I run my mouth until they call me racist. Once they reach that point, and it does not take long, I know I have them pinned, and then the real fun begins. Slowly, methodically, with a touch of passive aggressive thrown in, it is so easy to ruin their day and they won’t even know you did it until a few days later or someone tips them off. But by then, I have skipped-to-my-lou away right down the primrose path.

              • chevymisty says:

                Oh he will never call me raciest. His wife is my best friend and she is black and their daughter is my Goddaughter. So they never call me raciest. They just ask me if I have been drinking the kool-aid again…or if I have been watching or reading Beck or fox news again. its just annoying and I don’t want to ruin the friendships.

    • howie says:

      This should make him feel better. Obama has a new Secretary of HUD and Secretary of Labor ready to go for his second term. Seen here in action.
