The closer you look, the more you see.......
Hi, EveningStar; this looks to be quite serious—but I haven’t yet read it. “Scrutonium”?? I couldn’t get past the title without giggling. LOL.
The problem is that Barry is naturally immune to Scrutonium being that he has no balls.
A hole in one, my friend! I’m in tears laughing.
"Failure is simply not an option," said an exhausted Mission Chief David Axelrod.David, David -- come on. You know very well that Chicago does not welcome back political LOSERS. So it'll have to be off to Hawaii for Barry and Moochie.
"If left unchecked, this virus may actually force us to move back to Chicago."
Or better yet. If he's hard up for cash thanks to Moochie now spending Barry's money I'm suuuuure that his BFF Hugo can find a job for him in the administration down in Venezuela. Hugo could make Barry a Czar of Public Housing or - Crime Control - taking care of Hugo's 'criminal' enemies.
And I hear the Golf Courses in Venezuela are really nice. Barry will love that. All the Caddies are ex-capitalists that Hugo had arrested.
>Although all their experiments have thusfar proven unsuccessful, Axlerod refuses to concede.
“If I’ve learned anything in this job, it’s that hope is a strategy,” he said, wiping flopsweat from his combover.<
Yet another classic IowaHawk quotation goes down in the annals of history (making it oh, so hard to keep from spraying one’s monitor with coffee).
The polls and apparently lack of $’s except for Obozo/Lieden, er Biden, have force the Move On Thugs to send out emails begging for money.
Below is the latest bad news for rats from Move On:
Dear MoveOn member,
There’s breaking news from Ohio. And it’s not good.
For months, shady outside groups have flooded the Ohio airwaves with almost $20 million in ads targeting Sen. Sherrod Brown.1
And for months, he’s withstood the onslaught, holding on to a six or seven-point lead.2
But this weekend, two new polls came outone showing a tied race and the other showing Sherrod down four.3
This is, in a word, unacceptable.
Sherrod Brown is a fearless fighter for working people who has taken Wall Street head on, and now he’s paying the price. We can’t let Karl Rove and his big money backers win this one. We cannot let it happen. Can you donate to make sure we keep Sherrod in the Senate?
Yes, I’ll donate $5 to win in Ohio.
Senator Brown isn’t the only progressive who’s facing an onslaught of big money this year.
In Wisconsin, conservative Super PACs are hitting Tammy Baldwin after polls show her taking a small lead over her opponent.4
Tammy’s another great progressive, who led the fight in the House for the Buffett Ruleto make millionaires pay their fair share.5 Her opponent, Tommy Thompson, on the other hand, has spent years working for a D.C. lobbying firm fighting for special interests.
In Connecticut, it’s not outside money that’s the problem. It’s Republican Linda McMahon’s almost unlimited personal wealth. She spent $50 million on her failed Senate bid in 2010 and has already spent more than $13 million this year.6
But Chris Murphy’s valuesfighting for campaign finance reform and quality health careare much more in line with Connecticut’s voters’, and he’s opened a small lead.
These are races we have to win. But Tammy, Sherrod, and Chris need our help.

Thanks for all you do.
