Creaming of a president's trousers

White creamy stuff deposited on a president's clothing.

Certified: nothing added to this picture.
Obama is seen here wiping white creamy stuff from off his trousers. The picture was evidently snapped by Andrew Kaczynski, a young man from San Francisco who makes his living as a muck-raker.  Lately he's been selling dirt, old quotations, and anything else that might embarrass GOP presidential  aspirants,  to various internet sites.  He appears to have considerable interest in  gay issues

In this Tweet Andrew (not Andy) claims that the "white cream"  was somehow spewed on Obama by an unidentified woman eating yogurt.  There is no mention of the tiny silver spoon. 

I know what you're thinking, and no.  There has been no hint whatever of any oral history involving Obama and a woman.

Blogger (Google) appears to be taking a page from Microsoft.  That is, taking advantage of their dominance to force us peoples to use their stuff, in this case Google Chrome.  I only get this message when I try to edit form an IE tab in Firefox, so it's hard to tell which is their target (I suspect it's Firefox).  In any event Bloggers new "edit existing post page" is a barrel of crap, so I suspect my days are numbered.  I'm not up to going to  new format, so when this no longer works for me, I'll take it as a sign from God that I need to get a life.

Meet The Press

Not all overheated political rhetoric is alike. Delusional right-wing crazy talk -- the kind of ranting we've heard recently from washed-up rock star Ted Nugent and tea party-backed Rep. Allen West -- is a special kind of poison that cannot be safely ignored.

Let me be clear: I'm saying that the extreme language we hear from the far right is qualitatively different from the extreme language we hear from the far left -- and far more damaging to the ties that bind us as a nation.

Believe me, I would prefer not to dignify the ravings of Nugent or West by commenting on them. Nugent seems to be motivated by paranoia; West, perhaps by cynical calculation. But the only effective way to deal with bullies is to confront them.

Nugent, who delivered his foaming-at-the-mouth peroration at a National Rifle Association convention, earned a visit from the Secret Service with his promise that "if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year." [full Eugene Robinson:]

I think Eugene Robinson used to write his opinion for the NYT, maybe does still.  He does write a syndicated column that's picked up by various local rags, like one I read.  Here's his column for Sunday,  from an Indianapolis newspaper.  Is it out of his ordinary in today's media?  Nope.  All that causes me to recommend it to you is it happened to strike me, your host, as so agoggingly inane that it's a wonder we two can be from similar backgrounds. 

Well, we're not.  I grew up Red-White and Blue, Robinson grew up, evidently, thinking the world owed him something (i.e. Liberal Demorat/Socialist), and is by now enslaved by that particular ideology.  In other words, what he says has no relevance to me, no hint of sharing a common culture, and he would in fact be more at home at a Hamas-Taliban kaffee klatch.  But his is representative  of the published and spoken think we get from the dominant American press. 

When the left were making movies about assassinating G.W, Bush, I thought some hangings were in order,  When Ted Nugent says "if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," I think of statues on the Mall.

So, Robinson as a spokesman for the American left is correct, or I  am..  One of us is wrong, and a subversive.  It's come to that.
