Bill of Rights 2, The Revenge

The Toledo Blade (evidently a newspaper, not a hockey team) brings us coverage of Barack Obama's most recent rally; he talked for a while, the sick were healed, and the blind received his sight, pretty standard fare. Towards the end of the article, well, the more I think about it the more likely it becomes that I'll suffer a brain aneurysm, so here it is:


"Senator Obama's call for a middle-class rescue plan comes a day after The Blade published a Page 1 open letter to the candidate welcoming him to Toledo and inviting him to endorse a 'Second Bill of Rights' that includes Americans' right to a job where they live.

Mr. Obama responded to The Blade's question by agreeing that every American willing to work should be able to find a job at a living wage. But he stopped short of accepting that as a right.

U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D. Toledo) whipped the crowd up before Mr. Obama took the stage yesterday telling them that America needed a Second Bill of Rights guaranteeing all Americans a job, health care, homes, an education, and a fair playing field for business and farmers.
"

An actual Congressperson said this, in public, to a cheering crowd.
We're all fucking doomed.

I'm white, hows come I'm never told about our secret code words?

Lewis Diuguid wrote an article in the Kansas City Star on the 21st accusing the McCain/Palin campaign of using an "old code word for black" by calling Obama "socialist" (ignoring for a moment that the dude's a huge fuckin' socialist), he's not calling them racists, just, you know...
I fucking hate identity politics with a passion.

Good news: I finally got a usable installation.
Bad news: I'm pretty sure I have 512MB of fucked up Corsair DDR and a Gig of fucked up Mushkin DDR.
RMA ahoy!

RE: Metaphor

I can't find the ragged dog-eared copy of The Federalist Papers I keep at work, I think someone threw it away about a week ago, it seems strangely appropriate.

Da' Bate follow up

Obama's going to win, I just know it. You can't out-promise a Democrat Johnny, you might as well try to out-stink a turd.

It's the only reasonable explanation

Perhaps the whole nationalized health care idea is just a cunning plan to make Social Security solvent again by killing all the oldsters with shitty service, makes sense.
