Dear Bob Grant: You’re a fucking idiot.
McCain sure has the uninformed knee-jerk flag suckler vote in the bag. Bob Grant got his panties all in a wad about Obama’s recent campaign apprearance in Ohio:
But really folks, did you notice Obama is not content with just having several American flags, plain old American flags with the 50 states represented by 50 stars? He has the “O” flag. And that’s what that “O” is. That’s what that “O” is. Just like he did with the plane he was using. He had the flag painted over, and the “O” for Obama. Now, these are symptom — these things are symptomatic of a person who would like to be a potentate — a dictator. And I really see this in this man.
Trouble is…that “O” flag is the state flag of Ohio.
Oh, and regardless of how you feel about Obama’s cult of personality, I’m actually really fucking offended that Bob Grant shoots off his mouth about potentates and dictators.
When Obama refuses to recognize the authority of Congress for the first time, when he refuses to recognize his first Supreme Court ruling, when he signs his first Executive Order to circumvent the legislative process, and when he suspends his first election…then you can start opening your mouth about dictatorships and potentates. (And when that happens, think about who put all those shiny executive tools into the toolshed at Penna Ave. since 9/11, ready to be used against you after the next change of the watch.)
Mugabe is a dictator. Hitler was a dictator. Stalin and Mussolini were dictators. Idi Amin was a dictator. To apply that term to the front runner of a major party in a pluralistic and democratic republic is an offensive act of ideological masturbation.
(That goes both ways, for you “Bush is teh Hitlar!!1!!!One!!!” folks. If you truly believed that we have a dictator in the White House–or about to become President–you loudmouths would be out on some rooftop with a rifle, instead of behind a keyboard or a microphone. If you had any balls whatsoever, that is.)
