Losing My Religion

Overall, better than the sketch. No labels (other than Wright), and a clever way to allude to Sen. Obama. Plus the same message.

Labels "slow down" a cartoon, sometimes.

hey, this guy could come in handy for jim's censuring of his site

Where is your reference to Wright's comment (quote) "God damn America"? Put your left wing liberal spin on that! And where is any reference that this man has been Obama's pastor for 20 years?

at 3/19/08, 10:42 PM Blogger Joe DuBois said...

You depict Obama as a victim, but he has listened to this preacher for 20 years! It does explain why Obama doesn't hold his hand over his heart during the National Anthem! And why Mrs. Obama has not seen anything good about America in her adult life (she has been listening to "reverand" Wright since she was about 25 years old!)

I was praying that all of this stuff would not come out until Obama was the Democratic nominee.

But, then again, I'm sure there is lots more.


Obama goes to the Democratic Convention with a lead in delegates and the popular vote.

The Super-Delegates give Hillary Clinton the nomination.

Hillary does not select Obama as Vice President.

Voter turnout in the inner city will be light in the general election.

McCain wins.

President McCain appoints a United States Supreme Court Justice in early '09 to replace Justice John Paul Stevens. This new Justice will be slightly right to center (but not as right as Alito, Scalia,Roberts and Thomas).

President McCain continues to appoint a steady flow of reasonable and respectable Federal Judges - not the type that serve on the 9th Circut Court in San Francisco.

President McCain convinces the Senate/Congress to make the Bush Tax Cuts permanent - thus insuring economic gains.

President McCain also sees the need to drill and explor for oil and gas in Anwr and ALL of Alaska.

President McCain also moves forward with offshore drilling as well as a committment to alternative sources of energy.

President McCain moves forward with a committment to nuclear power and streamlines the licensing process which is now up to 11 years. For example, Cincinnati, could have a beautiful nuclear structure sitting on the west side of the riverbank within four years.

Great cartoon! This thing might not sink Obama, but he is certainly blowing bubbles right now.

Obama doesn't get the nomination...riots in the urban core

Obama gets the nomination...riots in the urban core

February 29, 2008

In [Wednesday] night's debate between Senator Barack Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton, MSNBC moderator Tim Russert asked both presidential candidates whether there was "any word or vote that you'd like to take back" in your "careers in public service." Senator Obama cited his role in a unanimous decision by the U.S. Senate regarding the Terry Schiavo case. He said it was "a mistake" for the Congress "to interject itself into that decision-making process of the families" to settle her fate.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue addressed this issue today:

"So now we know that Obama thinks it was a mistake-the biggest mistake he's ever made in public life-to allow Schiavo's parents the right to petition a federal court over the withdrawal of food and medical services necessary to save her life. Never mind that the vote was merely procedural: it simply allowed the patient's parents the right to ask for federal review, never guaranteeing a particular outcome. Moreover, the bill was case specific-it had no bearing on any case other than Schiavo's, and it explicitly said that ‘nothing in this Act shall constitute a precedent with respect to future legislation.' Yet Obama now says his vote ‘was not something I was comfortable with, but it was not something that I stood on the floor and stopped.' How revealing.

"Just as important as what Obama said is what he didn't say: He could have taken the opportunity to say that the biggest blunder of his career in public life was his vote to kill a bill in the Illinois legislature that would have provided medical care for infants who survive abortions. In 2003, while chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee of the Illinois Senate, he led the fight to oppose a bill that would have mandated health care for a baby who survived an abortion, and he did so even though the bill explicitly said it would not imperil Roe v. Wade.

"In conclusion, Senator Obama thinks it is none of the federal government's business to allow doctors to intentionally starve a person to death, nor is it the law's business to require doctors to attend to the health care of a fully born baby who has survived an abortion. All this from the Minister of Hope."

You portray Obama-lama-ding-dong as being baptized "against his will". He's been a follower of this preacher for 20+ years and still refuses to disavow him.

A person will be judged the company he or she keeps. I'm just glad that this "preacher" is being exposed.

Written by Pete Townshend
Released as a UK single in 1976
Available on the soundtrack Tommy

Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball
From Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all
But I ain't seen nothing like him in any amusement hall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He stands like a statue, becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers, always playing clean
He plays by intuition, the digit counters fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He's a pinball wizard, there has to be a twist
A pinball wizard's got such a supple wrist
How do you think he does it - I don't know
What makes him so good

He ain't got no distractions, can't hear no buzzes and bells
Don't see lights a-flashing, he plays by sense of smell
Always has a replay, never tilts at all
That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He can't beat me now I've always been the champ
I know every trick, no freak's gonna beat my hand

Even on my usual table, he can beat the best
His disciples lean him in and he just does the rest
He's got crazy flipper fingers, I've never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He's a pinball wizard, there has to be a twist
A pinball wizard's got such a supple wrist

He's a pinball wizard, he's scored a trillion more
A pinball wizard, the world's new pinball lord
He's scoring more, he's scoring more

I thought I was the Bally table king
But I just handed my pinball crown to him, to him, to him

Here's a few corrections to 6:51's nightmare scenario . . .:

President McCain convinces the Senate/Congress to make the Bush Tax Cuts permanent - thus turning the recession into a depression.

President McCain also sees the need to drill and explore for oil and gas in ANWR and ALL of Alaska; barely affecting oil prices, keeping our reliance on that filthy fuel, and paving the way to the next Valdez-type calamity, wiping out Alaska's remaining fisheries.

Just wondering: is disavowing your pastor common among White Protestants?

At the risk of stereotyping racially or religiously, I'm given to understand that openly criticizing your clergy -- even "church shopping" -- simply is not done in some circles.

How come Wright's comment on Billary wasn't included in this world-wide clip?
"Hillary's married to Bill and Bill was good for us? Ain't so! Bill used us just like he used Monica."
Oh yeah, Clintonistas put the clip together, so of course that wouldn't be in there.

Nice how 10:45 PM doesn't seem to care for the 50 million women who were spared horrible mutilation in a back alley, if not death; certainly the millions of women around the world who do endure mutilation and death by being denied reproductive services . . .
