muammar ♥ dennis

***

Proud of Obama noted the miserably small crowd Gaddafi managed to muster for this, um, rally … which reminded me of this:

ThinkProgress (March 21): With Fox News host Glenn Beck’s ratings down and the biggest tea party rally eclipsed by a recent pro-labor rally in Wisconsin, could the tea party be losing steam? One new sign: a big tea party convention in Tampa, FL this weekend — headlined by such conservative favorites as Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), Fox News Judge Andrew Napolitano, and former GOP Congressman Tom Tancredo — attracted only about 300 people. The Save America Convention’s website lists 25 guest speakers, meaning there was one speaker for every 12 attendees. If one includes the 13 musicians and other performers listed as entertainment, that ratio drops to one for every 7 and a half.

****

Remember yesterday’s story about Kucinich following up his suggestion that the President be impeached with a plea for campaign donations? You can see why:

Cleveland.com: Kucinich, who won 53 percent of the 2010 vote in his western Cuyahoga County district, has a 27 percent favorability rating statewide, and is viewed unfavorably by 40 percent of voters, the pollsters found. In 2012, Kucinich will likely face voters outside his home base because of redistricting.

    Chips you are a riot. Are my eyes deceiving me or does it look like his supporters can’t even fill up the area? Bunch of rag tag idiots. I hope he’s gone tomorrow.

    Chipsticks,

    Girl, you are a riot! All I could think of while I was watching the video was that Kucinich needs to get his azzz from in front of every teevee camera and out of Congress as badly as Muammar needs to get his azzz off the stage and out of Libya, and they both need to do it ASAP.

    LOL, Chipsticks at that Tea Party photo. Too funny. Guess Armey and the Koch brothers no longer want to shell out the bucks to bus in the astro turfers. Now the true “support” of the Tea Party is coming out.

    Okay I’m not going to pay a couple of bills of mines so I can do what that nut says and make a good donation to that other nut Kucinich. I’m getting my check book out right now, and I want Dennis to call me when he get my donation. My number is “go straight to “H” Dennis”.

    Gaddafi sounds a bit shrill! Guess he’s got a few hard feelings about the last few days. heh Joining up with a devil like Kucinich will only bring bad things to you. Remember what you told the president early Sat. in your letter:

    “To our son, his excellency, Mr Barack Hussein Obama. I have said to you before, that even if Libya and the United States of America enter into a war, god forbid, you will always remain a son. Your picture will not be changed.”

    I guess I’m just demented but the beginning of the letter he sent the prez cracks me up. He called him “My Son” a few times at the UN, too. “My Son, of Africa….” He’s obviously a Birther, too! heh

    Oh my gosh, Chips! That video is hysterical! What a couple of chumps. And I guess even with the 24/7 adoration of the MSM, the poor little Tea Party just can’t pull it off. JERKS!

    I needed that laugh before work! Gaddafi and the teabaggers both have something in common. They tell the most outrageous lies before your eyes. They are on the wrong side of history, and both hate America’s values, and both groups are on their way out.

    Great laugh out loud this morning with that!

    I got up and turn on my tv and just heard about Elizabeth Taylor. May she rest in peace.

    In all seriousness, we may be laughing at Khadafi (different spelling, but there are so many; I’ll get it right), but keep in mind that this attack, though seemingly justified, has touched off a new and important debate among African Americans, and African American men in particular, and especially those of the Muslim faith. There is always a more complicated relationship between America’s military policies and black people. There are parallels being drawn daily on the choice of targeted area when atrocities are ongoing in other geographically similar areas. President Obama is suffering a reduction in support from his black and ultimately very important constituency to some extent, unless and until this situation can play itself out to show a more reasoned and justified basis for the assault on Libya’s military. Personally, I believe it had to be done, but there needs to be shown a clearer picture of where things were, and where they will result in a cooperative and successful outcome. I mean this all just as a heads up to all here and any lurkers. As for you evil-spirited lurkers, this is in no way a condemnation of my President, so don’t even try shit!

      I agree EDP, I think the administration has to do a much better job at explaining why this operation is as morally justifiable as Clinton’s Kosovo War, which, in my own view, it is. I just posted a couple of articles by John Judis and DB Grady which make the case well.

      Grady partly responds to the question you raised: “….The argument follows that the United States is somehow hypocritical for bombing Libya but not the other oppressed Islamic nations using violence against its citizens. The implication of this position is that the choice is either war everywhere at once, or no war at all; the president appears to have answered it with a policy based on patience and opportunity, one country at a time…”.

      Of course, as you suggested, the debate is about how you choose which countries to intervene in, and why you stand back and allow atrocities carry on in others. I just don’t know the answer to that, I wish, for example, that the world stood up to the horror that is Saudi Arabia, but, it seems, the west cannot afford to stop supporting the regime there.

      There are probably 10, 20 more countries I would like to see intervention in, but I know that’s not realistic. Again, I just don’t the answer, but I am glad the coalition is taking on Gaddafi.

    Oh, Chipsticks, you are something else. The video is lol, hysterical. Yah, Dennis, the menace. What a jerk.

    Funny video….. But in regards EDP, I hadn’t even thought of that, but I just got out of class and on the shuttle back to my apartment, the driver had a Jamaican radio show on and people were calling in talking about how PBO shouldn’t have gone into Lybia and how it’s the same thing as Iraq. I had not even thought of the racial/political fall-out this intervention would have because to me, the humanitarian focus far outweighs the idea that people with similar ancestories should stick together even though there is a psycho going around and killing his people. That’s really sad, that people’s views are so myopic and concrete that they can’t even try to imagine the terror and struggle that other people are going through. I think often times we are a bit selfish and self-centered.

      Yes, Lisa, black folk can be myopic, especially when it seems no one listens to us. Look at how this media and a sizeable portion of the country diss the President, as if he merits no credit for handling the economy, healthcare, education, etc. So if blacks are sensitive it stands as justified, but there is still no excuse for us to be small-minded when it comes to other populations, regardless of ethnicity. Sadly, I don’t hear from this same percent of black folk any outcry against what a few African nations are doing to their own “black” people. When PBO spoke two years ago in one of them during his African tour, about each nation treating its own in despicable ways, all I heard basically is “why is he chastising these black Africans, but not saying anything about the oppression of past colonization?” Well, duh, if we had continued to dwell on slavery and Jim Crow and kept making excuses as to why we can’t move forward, we wouldn’t be here today. No, our ancestors fought for us to be here, achieving. None of this discounts the horrors of what my ancestors went through, but I and most black folk don’t allow it to paralyze us. Not even those protesting the President allow themselves to be paralized, but I think a lot of them have old wounds and arguments, and insist on keeping the debate going. Fine, but let’s open our eyes and face the fact that all of us are wrong sometimes.
