Where Is "The One" When You Need Him?

India is currently at "war level", after the terrorist attacks in Mumbai last week, militants in Thailand are in control of the airport, and Nigeria is burying its dead after days of Christian-Muslim riots.

Am I missing something here? Wasn't Obama's election supposed to bring peace to the world?

Not only has this magical peace and goodwill eluded the planet since his election, not a word has been said on any of these events, by anyone in the Obama camp. Nothing, nada, zip, nil, zero.

Oh well, don't mind me. I am just thinking out loud again.

Ya know, I drive right by the ocean on the way to work, and the level has remained the same since the Rapture on Nov 4.

I think that if you are going to be fair . . . and I know you to be an inordinately reasonable man on almost every topic except when it comes to sharing your beer . . . shouldn’t you wait until Obama actually becomes president, and Hillary moves in to her new office in the State Department?

Judging from Obama’s nominations this morning, I think I understand his new strategy on the war on terror. US forces will transport all arrested terrorists back to Washington DC and they will have to sit in an office with Janet Napolitano for hours at a time. If that doesn’t diminish terrorist activity, nothing will.

Now, perhaps, you are beginning to understand where “hope and change” is coming from. Since all you get from Greg is angry sarcasm, I’m glad I could be the one to enlighten you.

It's scheduled to drop below 40 degrees here on Wednesday.

So much for your vaccum weather theory.

A pox on you, First Sergeant.

Dude. Here in South Park, "The One" means someone who is gay. So are you calling the president elect gay?

Working at a Dept. of Defense installation (I'm a subcontractor... lower on the totem pole than just a contractor!), I was amazed by the number of Obama 08 stickers on cars in the parking lot. I wondered, what do they think Obamanation wants to do to our military and then where will they work?... Oh yeah... "The Messiah" has them convinced they won't have to work... that's right!

Eric, you are walking on thin ice in algebra. Don't you think you would be better served by doing the assignments I gave you, instead sullying up Mr. Sunsett's blog?

I think everyone is in for a surprise. The education is about to begin. Obama, his staff, those that sang his praises are in for a big letdown.

obama did one of the great cons in current political history. he convinced many people who he wasn't to get elected. one of his first acts will be to change all titles of "secretary" to alderman in spirit of Chicago.

You guys probably saw this, but in case not, check out this hilarious bit from an obamaton "journalist" wondering aloud how the Mumbai attacks could possibly have happened now that the One has been elected.

ALEX WITT: You know, John, and it’s interesting because there are many who had such an optimstic and hopeful opinion of things, and you certainly can’t expect things to change [snaps fingers] on a dime overnight, but there are many who suggested that with the outgoing Bush administration and the incoming Obama administration there would be something of a lull in terrorism attacks. There had been such a global outpouring of affection, respect, hope, with the new administration coming in, that precisely these kinds of attacks, it was thought — at least hoped — would be dampered down. But in this case it looks like Barack Obama is getting a preview of things to come.

Hi Greg !

Migod. Amerloque had to shake his head and wipe his eyes after laughing so hard.

One hopes indeed that such "outpourings" of sheer gullibility will be "dampened down" as The Messiah brings 'change' to Washington.

Best,

I just need to say one thing, why is it that Obama keeps saying there is only one President at a time in the US; but yet, we keep seeing him on News conferences standing at a podium and talking like he is already in office.
One more thing, I can't believe I will have to listen to Hillary's irritating voice for another four years. It just makes me want to PUKE!

Good thing he isn't from San Francisco. Supervisor Hillary Clinton sounds harsher.

All I can say is, unbelievable.

What else can anyone say after hearing that sound bite? Does anyone have the code word to wake her out of her hypnosis?

You simply cannot write comedy, any better than that. I wish I knew who her news writer is, I'd try my best to have him nominated for an Emmy.

I hear you Pattycake. I guess we will have to lay off the spicy foods until after the evening news.

Oh the shrilling sound! I may just get fit for earplugs. Geez!
That's why they dubbed her Shrillary I guess.
