The Obama fan club has obnubilated their view of the upcoming election and cannot see the shark infested waters they swim in.

    Or, to quote Brody in "Jaws 2": "But I'm telling you, and I'm telling everybody at this table that that's a shark! And I know what a shark looks like, because I've seen one up close. And you'd better do something about this one, because I don't intend to go through that hell again!"

    Convinced that his popularity was eternal, Obama responded by saying, yes, but there's a "big difference" between 1994 and 2010, and that big difference is "you've got me."

    The funny thing is, Obama might have been right. Because things might be much worse for Democrats in 2010 than they were in 1994 -- and the big difference might well be Barack Obama.

Obama-our values? Annihilate!
When I hear him, I gag, hyperventilate
Though his record sure sucks
I’d bet millions of bucks
That the mainstream will hide it, obnubilate

Used to play a vocab game every Friday in English class who also taught Latin class. Teacher would hand out list on Monday. On Friday we’d turn in assignment. Prize went to the person who could use the most words from the list in a paragraph. Double point were given to the Latin students if they could use a latin based word and give its source in the English paragraph.....Always had fun, laughs and did our homework! What we’d do for an M&M!

Question: When your children ask why there are bikini-clad strippers outside your church, do you obnubilate or give them the full details?

Obnubilate.....hmmmmmmmm This seems to have two meanings, sort of a double nintendo as the saying goes.
Could be that Ebonyonics that the guys speak at the pool hall over on t’uther side of the rail yard, “Oby, You be late!”, but since this is a more tea and cookies post than a grits and gravy post maybe we'll try to cyfer it out.

O.K., Jimmy Jakes said his new 15 yr. old wife was very nubile. (Jimmy uses foreign words a lot). Jimmy was a’feared that when she got painted up she might also be mobile so he told her to not look so nubile meaning to “Obnubilate” a little bit.
Course Jimmy didn't know this cow girl was really 19 and had been to more than one rodeo in her short life.

Least that's what I heard.
