Obama's Gangnam-Style Campaign: Big Bird, Binders & Biden

With less than two weeks left in the blurr of presidential debates and campaign ads and slogans, we are left holding our collective heads like the famous picture, "The Scream." Obama has certainly taken his bid for reelection in directions hitherto unseen in presidential campaigns in what can only be deemed in the current vernacular -- Gangnam-Style: a pulsing, hypnotic beat interspersed with unintelligible words and phrases and flashing psychotropic images.

In the first debate, villianous "Snidley Whiplash" Romney to the Left (Dudley Do-right to the rest) mentioned that he would cut public funding to Corporation for Public Broadcasting, home of "Sesame Street." The incensed Obama campaign immediately saw a target-rich environment to attack Romney and claimed he would pull the plug on Big Bird.

The "Weekly Standard" ran an article entitled, "Big Bird is Big Business" in which it was reported that, "[i]n 2011 Sesame Workshop took in $46.9 million in licensing income from Sesame Street." It turns out that Big Bird is part of the 1%! It's surprising that Obama didn't demand that Big Bird start paying his fair share!

Next up, during another debate segment, Mitt Romney stated that when he became governor of Massachusetts, he noticed that there were not many high-level women in state government, so he reached out for help in addressing the issue. The Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus provided him a "binder" produced in 2002 by the Massachusetts Government Appointments Project in which were names and resumes of potential female candidates for high-level positions.

Smelling more "blood" in the water, Obama's team of sharks jumped into action deriding Romney for "putting women in binders" -- Bill Clinton, then, immediately interrupted demanding to know where this binder was...

After the US Ambassador to Benghazi, Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 09/11 by a band of well-armed and organized terrorists, the Obama Administration spun a tale regarding a cheesy YouTube "movie" that apparently whipped the otherwise calm and collected Islamic terrorists into whirling dervishes that just happened to spin out of control and ended into murder and mayhem.

Instead of bringing the perpetrators to swift justice, the Obama administration blamed the Egyptian American "film-maker" and threw him into jail (where he sits now, scheduled to be released days after the election). Apparently, the Left is now not only against the 2nd Amendment but also against the 1st Amendment.

Lastly, Obama unleashed his secret weapon -- unlocking the attic and releasing Vice President Joe "Crazy Uncle" Biden. When Biden addressed Chip Woods, the grieving father of fallen Navy Seal Tyrone Woods, Biden asked Mr. Woods, 'Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?'

Sounds pretty accurate.

“Gangnam Style” was originally a parody rap song making fun of the richest neighborhood in South Korea. Just thought I’d mention that.

If you look at the video of that supposed " film maker " take a look at his gait.. the way he walks..... that's the way a street thug walks.
Perhaps ? maybe ? they found some willing street thug to put on those cloths and be the pretend scapegoat in that photo op video ?
Perhaps ? they found some jail bird waiting on their conviction and gave him a lesser charge if he would play along and put those cloths on and act the part ?

Yeah, I know, BIG TIN-FOIL HAT conspiracy stuff...

But what was the real reason they had to hid his identity ?
Maybe ? that guy walking away from the police car was NOT the supposed film maker but a stand in ?

Once again ? check out his gait.. the way he walks... he walks like a street thug.

Let’s hope it’s just as short-lived as the Macarena...

“...unintelligible words”? Only if you do not speak Korean.

“Gangnam Style” is number One in 35 countries and #2 on the US Billboard rating. Like it or not, and I do, even though hip hop or rap is definitely not my thing, this video has done more to focus attention on South Korea in a positive way than anything I’ve seen is some time. “There has been an explosion in interest in things Korean for the past few years and the Koreans even have a name for this blossoming of interest in their pop culture: hallyu, which means Korea wave”. Gangnam Style will certainly increase the size of the wave.

Actually, I do know some Korean — a bit! And it is still unintelligible — much like English “rap” is crap to me. Regardless, glad to see Korean culture recognized.
