Obama Event Registry – Babies

Hey, I think it’s great idea. Great for parodies, I mean. For instance, what if “the left” practiced what they preached and actually did what they expect “the rest of us” to do?

Babies For Obama

This has the makings of a good series but like everything else about the White House, the president and the Obama campaign these days, this has a very short shelf life. Things only last for a few days and then are replaced by some new thing even more ridiculous.

Obama Launches Re-election Campaign

Election 2012 is already proving to be highly entertaining to me. First of all the official campaign website is actually ASKING for email comments about citizen concerns. I plan on making use of that feature*, but first things first:  As noted at Ace of Spades, the first campaign video has been released. I have a question – does Katherine from Colorado look familiar to you?

One Katherine is charged with sending death threats, bomb scares and terroristic threats to Republican officials and their families. The other one is charged with bad taste in jewelry.

*Partial list of concerns:

  • what are those scars on Obama’s coconut?
  • whither the hosiery industry in light of bare-legged Mrs. O’s fashion influence?
  • what will we eat when we can’t afford arugula anymore?
  • what do you mean no more planes out of Cuba?**

** that one is from Jimmy Carter

UPDATE: And here I thought that Obama was going to run on his *ahem* past accomplishments. But no. He just issued a statement that he’s going to control cancer. CONTROL CANCER. It’s not enough that he’s controlling who has power in the Mid-East plus who gets the contracts for the soft drink machines in America’s elementary schools (hint: it’s a union), but now he’s going to control cancer, too.  Now even the bitter clingers will vote for him, by golly.

UPDATE 2: Oops! Not him – us. Nevermind.

We ARE the ones we’ve been waiting for! What took us so long?

Barack Obama, Full Of … grace?

Holy Blackberry! Obama Finds Ways to Keep the Faith During First Year In Office.

” … sources familiar with the president’s personal life say Obama remains a faithful Christian while in the White House, practicing his beliefs regularly in private with family and the aid of his BlackBerry.”

At first, I was skeptical about the validity of this news item. Then I realized how many times in a single work day, I look down at my company-provided Blackberry as new emails buzz in and quietly intone “Oh my God. Oh my God.” over and over. So, maybe.

I looked around for religious software for BBs and there are a few, mostly bible verse interpretations and some new age Buying the World A Coke kind of stuff. But then I found this Virtual Rosary Software.

“This program will grab your hand and take you all the way through the mysteries, creeds, and prayers you have to pray with a rosary … Virtual Rosary has a midi player integrated with several songs so you do not get bored while you are praying.”

They were smart to put that last part in there because I was already getting bored just reading about it all. But then I came across a screenshot of one of the prayer pages and saw that it displays a clickable AMEN button.


Now we’re talking! For those folks who spend their days worshiping  at the Church of Overused Business Lingo, an AMEN button would be so appropriate. Just click it whenever one of the buzzwords comes up. There is, of course, the danger of contracting Blackberry Thumb by overuse so I don’t recommend that the AMEN option  be employed for “low-hanging fruit” or “outside the box thinking“, but “deliverables” and “value proposition” and – Heaven help us all – “ping” … I say AMEN!

How can I get myself just an AMEN button? Because I could really use one.

Recap of Obama Press Conference On the State of Modern Healthcare:



“…  you’ve got a bad sore throat or your child has a bad sore throat or has repeated sore throats, the doctor may look at the reimbursement system and say to himself, “You know what? I make a lot more money if I take this kid’s tonsils out.” Barack Obama, July 2009
