“This is not a decision I come to whitely…” Barack Obama on CBS Evening News explaining his church resignation 5/31/08


Barack Obama is going through pastors lately like an old South Side slumlord goes through $331,000 in bad checks for Vegas gambling markers and kickback schemes.


And why is Barry’s SECOND shunned pastor (Reverend Michael Pfleger) channeling Sam Kinnison? (Click above youtube Kinnison video.) More fire and brimstone theatricals from the pulpit of the Empty Suit to keep the plebes shocked and awed and entertained while the country goes to hell!!! Praise Jesus or Allah or Tony or Blago or Gore or Arianna Oh Lawdy, take me now, I’m healed! I’m SOLD on the public relations campaign of viral marketing and baptism by Kool-Aid!!!!!!


As news surfaced over the weekend that Obama had “resigned” from his Chicago South Side Church, the Roman Catholic Sam Kinnison channeler had this to say to parishioners of HIS church, St. Sabina:


"I apologize for the words that I chose. I apologize for my dramatization that was, for many people who do not know me, simply typical dramatics I often use in sermons," said Pfleger, reading from a statement as nearly two dozen church leaders surrounded him. "I apologize for anyone who was offended and who thought it to be mockery, that was neither my intent, nor my heart."



Poor Barack. Pastor after pastor, regardless of denomination, what does it take for a guy who hangs out with slumlords to get elected around here, anyway? It’s not as if HE is the one pumping up the crowd with racist theatrics on the pulpit. Oh – and that Tony Rezko connection? Meh. It’s not like the populist crowd pleasing Kennedys didn’t hang out with the mob or anything and had any trouble getting elected by values driven voters with slick public relations firms at the helm. So Obama loses the church and keeps the faith. Swell. This church business affects the rest of us exactly how again?


In the meantime, the economy continues its downward slide, jobs keep on disappearing, over fifty million people are without healthcare and our civil rights continue to get sucker-punched by elites and their enabling politicians in the name of “progress” while the American voter ponders this hair-splitting decision to vote for the lesser of two evils who campaign on the false promise of “hope” which amounts to nothing (see easy to follow children’s story The Emperor's New Clothes).

Here’s a cheat sheet in case you’ve forgotten what the issues are all about. For all those Democrats who still believe HOPEbama is the answer to the above issues outlined by the Nader campaign, look again.


In this weekend’s WSJ interview with Ralph Nader, Ralph Nader aptly summed up the messiah to the masses, Barack Obama, with these words:

“Obama’s really a . . . the Wall Street Journal's editorial page wouldn't describe him as such . . . but he's really a corporate Democrat. His record in the Senate is not one of challenging corporate power."

Nader, the only true progressive candidate explains the charade of the empty suit, Obama’s campaign:

"I think the central issue in politics in this country is the domination of corporations over our government, and over our elections, and over so many things where commercial values used to be verboten . . . I mean, they're commercializing childhood, they're commercializing universities. What's happened in the last 25 years is an overwhelming swarm of commercial supremacy, and he, Obama, has bought into that."

When the interviewer pointed out Obama opposed the North American Free Trade Agreement, chastised the Big Three in Detroit for opposing higher CAFE standards and alleges he takes no money from lobbyists, Nader responded:

"You see, that's all permissible populist rhetoric that the corporations understand and wink at. Look at who gets the corporate money. Six out of seven industries giving money, through PACs and individual executives, etc., are giving more money to the Democrats than to the Republicans. I mean, John McCain's having trouble raising money, even now. Obama's taking large money from the securities industry, the health insurance industry . . . I've gotten used to this ritual where the companies give Democrats this leeway, and say, 'Well, Obama's gotta say that stuff, but he'll come around. There's no way he'll touch Nafta or touch the WTO.'"
Right. Politicians lie. Nader continued by explaining that the Obama campaign is all a charade:
“His health-insurance plan lets the health insurance companies continue their redundant, wasteful, often corrupt – in terms of billing fraud – ways, ripping off Medicare. My vice-presidential candidate, Matt Gonzalez, has written a 3,000-word tract on Obama that's on our Web site, VoteNader.org. You should read it."

and
"I think the central issue in politics in this country is the domination of corporations over our government, and over our elections, and over so many things where commercial values used to be verboten . . . I mean, they're commercializing childhood, they're commercializing universities. What's happened in the last 25 years is an overwhelming swarm of commercial supremacy, and he, Obama, has bought into that."
But when was politics ever about the smartest people in the room?
