We Dare You to Get Out of the Car and Shake His Paw

Is Obama the worst negotiator ever? I’m glad he wasn’t dealing with Stalin at Yalta.

@Dodgerblue: I go back and forth between cheering for him and loathing him. It’s been a tough couple years.

@Dodgerblue: I’m used to it at this point, so now it’s the Team Obama players who annoy the shit out of me — applaud his successes, sure, but don’t shit me that he wanted to pull out of Iraq.

Incidentally, I want a bear like that. He could lube under my bed and I would feed him Oreos.

…and by “lube” I mean “live”. Force of habit.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Oh. I thought you had worn out your mattress springs and they got noisy.

@Dodgerblue: Okay, so I’ve obviously been stuck under a rock working 16 hour days this week and have missed a lot of news developments, because it was my cashier at Trader Joe’s who informed me this afternoon that Black Eagle signed the “we don’t need no stinkin trials…or habeas corpus” bill that Obama had previously said he would veto. WTF??

@SanFranLefty: Obama was threatening a veto because the earlier version didn’t go far enough in trashing habeas corpus. No, really.

@SanFranLefty: And went buns-up to the Repubs over the Keystone XL tar sands project in return for a two-month extension of the payroll tax credit. Two months. Gee, what will happen then?


Another two month extension in exchange for:

1. Making the Bush tax cuts permanent;
2. Repealing the Clean Air Act; and
3. Add the travesty of your choice.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: I had a rabbit that lived under my bed when I was 11 or 12. I could not believe that my mother suggested that’s where it should live. It was less than a year before I decided it wasn’t such a hot idea and released it in the woods. I apologize to all bunnies. I was young and ignorant and it was the 1960s.

@Walking Still: I’m starting to think that not only does Obama not want to be reelected but he has come to loathe his fellow countrymen to such a degree he is doesn’t care that his abdication means Republicans will finish driving us off a cliff sooner than later.

Jeezus, 14089 views? I’m gonna have to add a comma.

(And where do 14089 views come from? StumbleUpon.)

@nojo: I get email from StumbleUpon, but I have no idea why. Did I sign up at some point?

@nojo: Oh, and note that all those hits came from a fucking waving-bear video, not our trenchant political commentary. Is it any wonder I hide in my apartment?

@blogenfreude: If I were cynical, I’d switch to All Cute Shit, All the Time. As it stands, if the StumbleUpon traffic buys me an extra Google Ads Six-Pack, I’ll take it.

(Ironically, I almost ran a Hitch video instead, but I didn’t like the examples on offer. Browbeating dullards on Fox or Maher is too easy.)

It’s only been in recent weeks that our StumbleUpon traffic has picked up. I have no clue why, since I haven’t changed any procedures.

And although I have an SU account to feed material into their system, it’s extremely rare that I receive an email from them. Unlike LinkedIn, which I never use, but bombards me daily.
