‘Let His Days Be Few’ Very Few

Psalm 109:8 ‘Let His Days Be Few’
An anti-Obama bumper-sticker slogan which seems to urge people to pray for an end to the President’s days (in office?).

There’s a hilarious new meme in the wingnut sectors (*snort*) of the internet,” Gawker announced:

Posters to various message boards tell stories of seeing bumper stickers with the message “Pray for Obama – Psalm 109:8” on the highway, only to look up the verse and find, “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” …

Anyway, now it’s a real thing: CafePress is selling T-shirts and bumper stickers, the Christian Science Monitor is wondering whether it’s “funny or sinister” to pray for Obama’s death, and Rachel Maddow referenced it last night on her show.

However, as a number of commentators have noted, the wording that follows this bumper-sticker appeal is somewhat more disturbing:
  • Let his days be few; and let another take his office.
  • Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
  • Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.
  • Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labor.
  • Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children.
  • Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.
  • Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
  • Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

Lest you missed this (I did), a reprise is in order.  I like that The New York Times cites Gawkerin the manner of the AP or UPI— although I guess it is a contributor..  And, there is nothing in the psalm that translates " to pray for Obama’s death." 

Let his days be few; and let another take his office;” well what the hell, that's why we're having an election in a few months.  Now bow your heads and pray. Let his ...

My Second Husband Was a Democrat

Res Ipsa Loquitor

A lady walks into a bridal store and tells the clerk she is wanting to purchase a wedding gown for her third marriage. The clerk congratulates the lady and asks what style and color she was considering? The lady said she wanted a long white gown and veil.

The clerk said he didn’t mean to be forward, however white typically represents ladies who have maintained their innocence. The lady responded she in fact had maintained her innocence. The clerk asks; how so?

The lady said her first husband tragically died of a heart attack in anticipation of the honeymoon following the wedding service. What of your second marriage the clerk asked? Oh, he was a Democrat who sat on the edge of the bed for four years telling me how great it was going to be, but nothing ever happened.

Regrettably under the radical Democratic leadership of the Obama administration [Town Hall]

This is a lovely package that makes a larger point.  Here, DNC-Media representative GAWKER  decries a Fox-Nation blog post,  while at the same time Gawker's big time alphabet-media comrades do their thing- ignore the story.  Which is why FOX's "We Report, You Decide" philosophy is so abhorrent to Liberal twats like Gawker. But you already knew that.

The world's biggest dipshit (Vante CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith) is now, quite deservedly, out of a job. TheDC's Neil Munro reports:

"The person who taped himself harassing a Chick-fil-A employeeon Aug. 1 has been fired by his employer. 'Vante regrets the unfortunate events that transpired yesterday in Tucson between our former CFO/Treasurer Adam Smith and an employee at Chick-fil-A,' reads a Aug. 2 company statement ... Smith videotaped himself harassing the employee, who replied gracefully to his jibes about Chick-fil-A’s corporate support for popular conservative groups."

There is justice in the world. (
