The media made him; will they break him?

Barack Obama isn’t real.

He’s made up.

Oh, sure, he was born … somewhere on Earth (we think it was Earth) … and grew up in a comfortable home after emigrating to the U.S. as a child.

We really don’t know much about him because he’s following the story.

And no one tells the story better than those that wrote it. And the writers of the Barack Obama story include the media.

Well, suddenly, some in the media are starting to question Obama.

That smacks of heresy, sure. But think for a minute. Is it really heresy of those that invented the religion (Obamatology) stray?

Here’s what happened.

Jennifer Loven of the AP questioned White House press secretary Robert Gibbs about the $100-million (that’s 1/100 of 1% of $1-trillion) budget reduction target (H/T RealClearPolitics)

ABC’s Jake Tapper joined in.

Oh, sure, that’s only two reporters. But it gives hope.

Perhaps some of the so-called journalists that cover the White House will actually be journalists.

I’m not holding my breath. But I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Complaints About IMAO

I’ve been getting a lot of e-mails like this lately:

I used to love IMAO and read it back in the day you were all about nuking the moon. You were one of the most innovative conservative blogs out there and the only one taking world peace seriously. Lately, I’ve notice a disturbing change. You barely ever talk about a tactical strike against the moon and instead are going constantly on and on about putting rocket launchers on dinosaurs. I thought it was a temporary thing, but it seems like every day there is some reference to arming dinosaurs. When you started writing about a “Dick Cheney Assassination Squad” and also had them riding dinosaurs, I had enough. You’ve lost it. It’s hard to even remember why I like your blog in the first place and I will not be coming back anymore.

Okay, I’ll try to say this simply enough so you dead-ender, paleo-conservatives can understand. All of you whining about putting rocket launchers on dinosaurs are the reason the Republicans are out of power. You are why Obama won the last election and will probably be easily reelected. Because of your archaic religious view you won’t accept the way forward: dinosaurs with military armaments.

We don’t need you and I certainly don’t need you on this blog. You are nothing but in the way. Anyone who complains about dinosaurs with rocket launchers will be banned. We’ll be better off without you.

Taking Torture Seriously

Can you believe there was a debate on whether to use a caterpillar to coerce information out of terrorist? That’s we should have never let out these “torture memos” out; it’s okay to debate this stuff in private but if the terrorists know about it makes us look like a bunch of nancies. The point has never been what we can do; it’s what the terrorists think we can do. There’s only one way to repair this, and that’s to publicly torture a terrorist in unspeakable ways to make the terrorists think there is no limit to what we will do to them. And to show there is no mercy, the terrorist picked for this should be Obama’s best friend, Bill Ayers. We’ll torture him so good terrorists will e-mail the information we want to know before we even capture them just to be on the extra safe side that we won’t torture them.

Giraffe-alo

Did you see what Giraffe-alo said recently? (Since I hate her so much, I call her that; that’s right, I compare her to the ugliest and stupidest animal in all the earth and known planets: the giraffe)

Visit msnbc.com for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

It wasn’t really able to get me angry because it’s like she’s just trying way too hard. Even Olbermann looked kinda uncomfortable with her. Do you get the feeling, though, that she’s like the liberal id? She just saying what all the liberals would say if they hadn’t trained themselves to interact with normal society. And notice how haggard she’s started to look. It’s like keeping all that hate inside her is doing to her what it did to the emperor in Star Wars.

Anyway, next time someone asks you why you care about government spending issues, tell them the truth: It’s because you hate black people.
