Our eldritch President ate dog meat as a boy, yet the left thinks Seamus's vacation was cruel. Perhaps some BO-BQ on the grill? Bichon Fricassee? Eggs Rover Easy?

BTW, I could give a rat’s pitootie that Obama ate dog in a country where it was culturally acceptable. I eat veal, tried the foi gras last summer in France, and wear fur. Unless he beat it to death first, I don’t care. Romney is still a douchebag for strapping the dog to the roof....and even stupider (yes, I said stupider) for bragging about it. And nothing having anything to do with dogs should matter in this election. It is the economy, Stupid(er). Why was Newt the only one to remember that message?

(disclaimer: the dog recipes being tweeted are HYSTERICAL)

No, but you wouldn’t be the first woman to substitute “rich” for “wood.”

oh, I think the whole matter highlights that O never had a normal AMERICAN childhood like the rest of us. never stood each morning to salute the flag....dogs were food, not beloved pets. yes, it matters. how much? just another drop in the bucket.

There is something very, very wrong about Obama, a nearly imperceptible detachment from reality that emanates from within his soulless existence. His left-wing, liberal extremism, more mental disorder than mere eldritch sickness.

Liberals are petty and eldritch
Hating Mitt Romney, “He smelled rich!”
But for Nancy and Teddy
The voters were ready
Loved AlGore and Kerry who dwelled rich

Oh, I knew it was Elwood, my 10 year old can recite his whole list of excuses to Carrie Fisher...”IT WASN’T MY FAULT!”

And yes, I agree that BHO does not have an American background. He outrages me on so many things, that I just cannot get worked up about his love of collie-flower (just read that and howled).

The oceans began to recede and revealed the abnormal, non-Euclidian geometry of Cthicago and its gibbering, loathsome denizens—we had encountered the Eldritch Obama Nation.

Have you tried ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B- in Apt 23”?

I watched the first 2 episodes on Hulu the other day and it was actually pretty good. Quite demented.

The title character loves to befriend and torment fresh-faced newcomers to the city, stealing their money before sending them packing back home to Iowa or wherever. Oh, and James Van der Beek plays himself as one of her friends. Can’t quite break away from the “Dawson” thing.

Episode 2 airs tonight and it’s got some twists, to say the least.

Tonight’s episode is really good. The show is fast paced and twisty-turny. I don’t know how long they can keep it fresh, but so far so good.

I did see the pilot The first one was pretty good - the previews made it appear the new roommate was going to be a doormat, but she fought back so it was pretty good. I will look for it when I have a free minute.

Eldritch

Yep, this is kinda earie for the nosey so to speak.
This elder itch comes up on a fella sitting around cogitatin’ on what he’s done in his whole life, things like being Honorary President of the Woodsman Association and a being a notary public too (except the second wife ran off with that Simms kid an took my notary stamp). Taking that stamp was plain hurtful.

Yep, a elder folk gets the itch to give back to the community, to do something for the less fortunate...so I went right out to the smoke house and got a pint of home brew. It’s earrie alright and killed off that itch complete.

It was a lot better than HBO’s hyped “Girls,” which was morose.

someone found it in his autobiography, Lolo Soetero fed them weird foods over there apparently. so it’s in his own words that he ate dog, no one is making this up. It’s not a huge deal, but it does make for hilarity!

I am most honored by the special commendation you have bestowed upon me and have decided to award myself 1st prize of this limited special edition "No Dog-Meat Eaters in the White House" button to wear as proud jingoistic American patriot anti-Obama nemesis that I am.

Lolo couldn’t afford the prime cuts, cause Obama reported the dog meat as “tough.”

I noticed it on Twitter yesterday that in one of O's books ......he said he ate dog meat...the left was harping on Seamus's infamous ride on the Romney vacation, the right was starting to tweet back...I got home from the station last night and #ObamaDogRecipes was trending on Twitter. I had to join the fun and stayed up too late. I hadn't laughed so hard while on Twitter ever.
