Obama vs A Rodent of Some Kind

May 20, 2010

Once again going to the Drudge Report brought me to an entertaining trip down internet-commenting lane. This article about a rodent of some kind running in front of Obama is pretty silly but because Drudge linked to it – with a ***ing headline no less, on the day sweeping finance reform passed – there are over 1000 venomous, ignorant, unfunny and/or unintentionally hysterical comments. Here are a few samples:

“Rats are the first to leave a sinking ship…….” (Many, many, many variations on this theme)

“I see the first family has brought some of their getto with them. Clearly, we will have to fumigate in 2012 when we kick these communist infiltrators out of our house.”

“if there was no mention of the rodent on his teleprompter, how would Obama know what to say?” (I find this tack to be sort of sad – I’ve heard and read it before – it’s like certain right wingers have hurt feelings after 8 years of hearing what an idiot Bush – their avatar – was, they are childishly throwing out the same accusation even though with Obama – whatever else you may think of him – it’s pretty moronic to suggest he can’t speak extemporaneously with authority)

“Was it female, with abnormal trapezial development?” (I take this to be a somewhat obscure diss on Michelle Obama)

“Turned our beloved white house into dump! I knew it would happen! Real Estate values will plummet!
White flight coming next!
Jimmy Carter had his rabbit and his poll numbers went south, expect the same for this slumlord!”

“*** CONGRADULATIONS AMERICA** barak AND congross PASSED A BILL#1388 TODAY WHICH WILL SHIP HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PALISTINIANS (HAMAS) TO THE U.S.A. AT A COST TO YOU OF ONLY 20+ MILLION, THEY GET FREE HOUSING, JOBS, FOOD, ETC. I SEE baraks ARMY FORMING.”

“Whats next@#$%roaches? Like the old addage goes. You can take a black man out of the ghetto, but you cant take the ghetto out of the black man. The rodents and insects tend to follow the filth. Now in the “Whitehouse” Things may never be the same ever again. !!” (Keep in mind readers can rate these comments. Every one I’m quoting has a positive rating – this one was 14 positive to 9 negative -and most of them overwhelmingly positive)

Speaking of ratings, a comment isn’t visible without an extra click if it gets too low of a rating. I figured these would all be real nasty but they weren’t in the slightest. Here are two of them:

“Just a visitor from Wall Street. Why does Wall Street have such an influence on our economy? It serves only a select few to a large degree.” (2 positive to 10 negative … A reply to this comment is “There is poop on your chin”)

“All of these negative comments are very unpatriotic. If you don’t like our country, leave it. BE A PATRIOT. GOD BLESS AMERICA. GOD BLESS OUR PRESIDENT!” (0 positive to 10 negative)

There was a monkey-referencing comment that had a gangbusters positive rating but I lost track of it. You can surely imagine though.

Anyway I think JamesT (Kirk???) and Linda may have summed up the whole thing.

Quoth JamesT: “Finally, the press corpsemen have something of substance to report on. They can’t seem to find anything to say about two wars, illegal immigration, the rising debt, oil spilling into the gulf, the un-anything Kagan, the crazy comments by the Mexican President, the new and improved health care estimate (could someone say trillion?), etc. etc. etc.”

Quoth Linda: “I wish everyone would just grow up!”

    “Ah, no, young sir!
    You are too simple. Why, you might have said –
    Oh, a great many things? Mon dieu, why waste
    Your opportunity? For example, thus: -”

    I always knew this was a Mickey Mouse operation.

    (cheesy, I know.)

    The ultimate rebuttal: “There is poop on your chin”
    I’m dying laughing.
