Finding Nonsense and Beating it Sensible

I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Obama's World Tour

The big European tour of "Obama: The Rock Opera" drew a huge crowd, not because Obama was there so much as free food, beer and rock bands sucked them in for Barack's photo op. Gerard Baker of The Times Online in the UK has let slip the crack in the Obama myth that all are enthralled by his message of change. His article is entitled "He ventured forth to bring light to the world." It is well worth reading. I could not help after I read it to recall the last lines of "Tommy."

We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it
We're not gonna take it

We're not gonna take it
Never did and never will
Don't want no religion
And as far as we can tell
We ain't gonna take you
Never did and never will
We're not gonna take you
We forsake you
Gonna rape you
Let's forget you better still.

The problem with the new messiahs is they can only get by on their charisma for so long. Sooner or later it gets old. This foreign tour has just about worn the glitter off Barack just by the strong glare of constant fawning coverage. Try as they might the tepid response to his empty speech can't be ignored.

More telling of what this whole charade is really about is the gushing reports that Obama is raising much more donations from ex-pats in Europe than McCain. He's fleecing the kool aid drinkers but fooling no one else.
