The Rightosphere’s Grand Finale

November 2, 2008

As a Brave Nomadic Warrior of the Political Web™, I’ve noticed some insanely desperate attempts to change the course of the race over the last year or so.  From the idea that it was Ayers who secretly wrote Obama’s book, to the elusive Michelle Obama “whitey” tape, to allegations that Barack forged his birth certificate, the width and breadth of the assertions seemed to be limited only to the boundaries of the human imagination (an absolutely hilarious rundown of these “greatest moments” was penned in a classic post by Jon Swift here). 

But now as we enter the final moments of this long campaign, the rightosphere is faced with the reality that McCain’s chances are slim.  So, I’m going to take the opportunity to use the end of a 4th of July fireworks production as a metaphor, and document the components of the flurry as I stumble upon them.  And believe me, there are some definite oohs and ahhs here (just in the last 24 hrs or so):

-Barack Obama Malcolm X’s secret love child?

Kidding!

….not:

Tom Mboya, and Philip Ochieng, all share common physical features of the Kenyan Luo tribe: Modest stature under six feet, round faces, small chins, wide set eyes, slanted back foreheads, and retracted hairlines…none of these features are shared by Malcolm X and Barack Hussein Obama Jr.

(That one earned Pamela a Countdown “worst person” award)

-The Weather Underground and Obama’s campaign both feature a logo that is circular!

Do you see the connection?  I don’t.  Then again, I assumed that the Obama logo was designed by some outside group anyway.  As it turns out, I was right.  In any case, go ahead and click the link, as the other suggestions of Obama/WU correlation in the post are just as flimsy.

Update:  Good grief:

OK, so they knew it was a dishonest smear.  I’m not sure if that makes them better or worse.

-The Obamas have no pets!

That one may actually be fact, but the stab at spinning it into a game-changer earns a spot here.

-DID VERA BAKER ABORT OBAMA’S BABY? IS OBAMA BEING BLACKMAILED BY HER? BY OTHERS? DID OBAMA RIDE HER DIRTY?

??????

-An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches

This one comes to us in the form of a 67-page pdf!

I’ll continue to highlight more eruptions as we march towards the finish line, since we still may have yet to witness the most spectacular example.  You can almost hear the groaning sound as these people grasp at straws, desperately hurling anything and everything they can think of, as soon as they think of it.   In a way, this is a more extreme shadow of what the McCain campaign has done, so I have to wonder that it never occurred to any of these people that all this crap might have done more harm than good. 

Oh well, let’s enjoy the fireworks!

Update: I should probably rethink the title for this thread, as I totally forgot about the PUMA’s: *Breaking* Ayers Advises Obama on a Regular Basis (source)

Ah yes. *Breaking*, the day before the election.

Update:  Speaking of which, Drudge finds his inner PUMA:

The screenshot of the middle finger scratch, again!  LOL

  1. You know, living on a faraway surface of this planet, I don’t exactly care about this election.. But the collective look on these people’s faces makes me secretly root for Obama.

    Stocking up on popcorn already..


  2. You know, I’d thought I’d heard all of the craziness, until I saw the logo “issue.”

    Sigh …

    On the other hand, I hadn’t realized that the Obamas don’t have any pets. That does kind of require that I rethink the whole thing. Maybe it is worth voting for McCain just to stop a pet-less family from conquering the White House.

    Wait. I don’t have any pets!


  3. Iraq Hussein Osama is not a Christian, he is not an American, and he is not a conservative. It doesn’t surprise me in the least that he’s the illegitimate man child of Malcolm X, since they both subscribe to the same Marxist-Islamist theology, anyways.


  4. The other day I saw a car with one of those soap paintings on the back window that said “Obama: Death of Democracy.”

    I guess those on the left have had their turn at calling the President a fascist, why not give the conservatives a turn?


  5. Scrutator,

    I haven’t yet looked at your blog to see if everything you say is a parody, so I’ll hold myself back a bit. However … How does one reconcile the requirement to be respectful, as stated in the Epistles, with the juvenile name-calling of referring to a man as “Iraq Hussein Osama”?


  6. Wickle-
    He’s joking.


  7. I dunno. The site says it’s not a parody.


  8. LOL … it really doesn’t matter whether or not the site says it’s a parody. Anyone who spews the tripe that Scrutator dished out in his comment, is a walking parody, whether intentional or not. The real question is whether to laugh with (at) him or feel sorry for him.


  9. BE said “I guess those on the left have had their turn at calling the President a fascist, why not give the conservatives a turn?”

    BE, you’ve hit the nail right on the head and I’ve commented on this in other Chamber threads. Conservatives bring more than ideology to the current campaign. They bring 8 years of hurt feelings. So it’s payback time as far as they’re concerned. The only drawback to Obama being elected is we will have to put up with this whining for the next eight years.


  10. Circles scare lizards apparently, a new phenomenon we had hitherto not discovered. Good work there Chen! LOL


  11. Rutherford:
    “The only drawback to Obama being elected is we will have to put up with this whining for the next eight years.
    I remember how fast the Carter bumper stickers disappeared from back bumpers as he bumbled from one disaster to another. With a majority in the House and Senate it won’t take long for the American public to finally wake up and figure out they f*cked up.
    It won’t take ‘odd and even’ gas rationing (Carter) or mandatory rationing of electricity (early 2009) to reduce greenhouse gasses for the talk of pitchforks and torches to begin. On both sides.


  12. “How does one reconcile the requirement to be respectful, as stated in the Epistles, with the juvenile name-calling of referring to a man as “Iraq Hussein Osama”?”

    There’s a saying: ‘What’s in a name? Everything.’ A man’s name says a lot about his convictions. Obama’s cousin, Odinga, tried to impose Sharia Law on his country, and Obama helped him.

    “I remember how fast the Carter bumper stickers disappeared from back bumpers as he bumbled from one disaster to another. With a majority in the House and Senate it won’t take long for the American public to finally wake up and figure out they f*cked up.”

    Amen! Obama may not have the same support politically that Carter did, but the American people will be under his spell for far longer.


  13. I would like to point out that none of this has any real political power. This is a few people who are driven by hatred of Obama over love of McCain. Like you said, these charges are limited only to imagination. These people aren’t after facts, and I won’t try to defend them, but I do think that you are lumping too many people in this group.

    Do you remember those false pictures of Palin after her nomination?


  14. I would like to point out that none of this has any real political power.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. But I think its kinda fascinating, in a social psychology sort of way.

    Do you remember those false pictures of Palin after her nomination?

    No, what pictures?


  15. You quoted my question, but didn’t even come close to answering it.

    Does that mean that you can’t reconcile the two, or would you like to try again?


  16. Wickle-
    I promise you this guy is joking. Go to his blog…he blames liberals for Halloween murders because they don’t teach their kids about private property rights. That’s funny.


  17. the blog reminds me of blogs 4 brownback, which also maintained their seriousness, right up till the end. If they were a parody, it was genius that would make colbert jealous.


  18. ChenZhen – I was a fairly regular commenter there since late September (I found the site early August). I contributed a post there, too, sometime in mid March. You can see a few comments by Psycheout on my about page.

    “Does that mean that you can’t reconcile the two, or would you like to try again?”

    I have no reason to be nice to a man that helps his cousin implement Taliban-like policies on his cousin’s nation. Are you saying we should be civil to the Taliban? Typical liberal.


  19. Oh yes, I also contributed to Blogs 4 Conservatives. I have three posts there.

    BTW, I’ve heard rumors that Sisyphus was also DougJ of Balloon Juice and Scrutator fame. I haven’t seen this verified anywhere, though. He seems real to me.


  20. I miss psycheout!


  21. “I miss psycheout!”

    Yes, I do, too. I haven’t been able to keep in touch with him since I last talked with him on May 2, though. In 2007, he left from May 2 to about June 29; he left May 2, but hasn’t come back.

    Would you mind emailing him and seeing how he’s doing? Also, maybe you could convince him to post again? I understand why he quit, since there’s a bunch of liberal trolls vandalizing the website, but I think that he needs to put them aside and work for the greater good.


  22. BE – Thanks. I’ll take your word for it from here.

    CZ – You know, my family was sitting around over Sunday dinner thinking of other things with circular logos — the Royal Air Force, Kentucky Fried Chicken, AT&T … it was fun. Apparently, the Weather Underground has conquered the world.


  23. It has always been the republican tactic. I hope we won’t hear this BS for 4 years.
