Nancy Pelosi recently graced the cover of a some socialite rag titled Capitol File. There is something glaring about the cover that kind of goes without saying...so I'm not going to say it (you'll figure it out from my captions). Rollover the numbers to see my captions and add your two cents in the comments.
A few days ago Obama issued a message tomobilize the troops for 2010.
You can seethe video in its entirety here if you're an insomniac...or you can save yourself the trouble since I cut to the chase below:
"It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African Americans, Latinos and women, who powered our victory in 2008 stand together once again." "If you help us do that -- if you help us make sure that first-time voters in 2008 make their voices heard again in November -- then together we will deliver on the promise of change and hope and prosperity for generations to come."
You see, Obama had a one-night stand with certain voters back in '08, and at the end of it he said "I'll call you." He kept his promise...its a call to action.
Man oh man, I can see the campaign pamphlets now...
Sure, this response is a bit hyperbolic, but the brazen nature of such hyperbole pales in comparison to a sitting president's appeal to minorities to flip on their Obamaton switch in what is supposed to be some sort of "post-racial presidency."
To be sure, the demographics he mentions did indeed "power" his victory, but the teleprompter forgot to let him know that such a strategy for a Democratic victory is a glass that is half empty.
The other half, being all the independents and Republicans that chose to give him a shot (and those who sat on their hands and refused to be a de facto vote for McCain) and are now suffering buyers remorse, is the half of the equation he poured out into the gutter the moment he decided to govern less like the center-left guy he painted himself to be and more like Howard Dean on crazy pills.
I will say this, at least the Democrats don't dance around the fact that they hold the minority vote with an iron fist.
I would love see what might happen if a Republican would say anything remotely close to what Obama said, but for "their people"....Whoever the hell that is supposed to be.
They wouldn't do it, because racists concern and obsess themselves with race.
Besides, if they did the liberals and the media would have to invent new bigot-tarring "ism's" to satiate the need to devour their "racist" right-wing carcass in the court of public opinion.Add a comment
I'm the son of an immigrant. My dad and his family had very little when they came to North America, but the navigated the system and became American citizens...more importantly than that he AND my grandparents became American.
What kind of twilight zone did we enter where it was controversial to criminalize illegal immigration?
Thats what Arizona just did, and you would think if you listen to liberals that the state just turned into some kind of conservative San Francisco. Requiring strangers in this land to identify themselves (this doesn't mean they are not welcome...to the contrary) used to be part of the American way.
Now media like CNN are trying to claim the state is now polarized as if some racist fringe thrust this on the population like it was ObamaCare. Meanwhile Rassmussen finds 70% of likely voters favor the bill.
If Republicans controlled 70% of congress right now...they would repeal Obamacare, watch Obama use his veto pen for something other than sketching new ways he can work his logo to the most innocuous of wrds...and then they would vaporize his veto.
But at CNN 70% favorability of opposing illegal immigration is "polarizing." This can only mean that Nobel prize winning mathematicians work at CNN.
This of course is contrasted with the the totally peaceful Tea Party, who don't even lay a finger on Nancy Pelosi while she rubs the impending passage of ObamaCare in their faces, and yet earn the title of Timothy McVeigh Jr. from the likes of Bill Clinton
A lot has been said about the Tea Party taking similar tones, and just about none of it is provable. However, we do know that liberals via websites like crashtheparty.org have set out to pose as Tea Party members holding misspelled signs and engaging in bad behavior to make them look like the thugs in Arizona.
I've been witnessing these kind of shenanigans since I started paying attention to politics as a teenager, yet the audacity with which the liberal leaning news media tries to just flat out rewrite reality never ceases to amaze me.Add a comment
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in The Looking Spoon. This month marks one year since I launched the blog in its present form. (It used to be on Blogger before I decided to host it myself, see the posts from the 2008 archive, I warn you though my current work is a lot better)
I do this because I’m passionate about what is happening in this world, and I like to make people laugh. It really is that simple.
I also got tired of hearing how conservatives have no sense of humor and they don’t know how to be funny. I hope you all have found that The Looking Spoon puts truth to that lie.
In the process of doing this I’ve found that not only does The Looking Spoon shed light on conservative humor, but there are others out there who do just as good, if not better, job at making us laugh at liberals. If you want to see them check out The List.
Every month I continue to be amazed at the growth of traffic the site gets, and I hope the second year will be just as successful as the first. Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to pay attention to what this blog has to say. Your support here and on the social networks truly keeps me motivated to keep trying and going after full-time work and other family and life obligations.
Now that I'm done with the mushy stuff its back to work.
I know I'm not the first to come up with this idea....but lets have some fun with captions and liberals! Leave a comment below as to what you think is going on here. I did my own take on what they may have been saying, which you can see by rolling over the numbers below (preferably in order).
Joe Klein of Time magazine on seditious conservatives...
Glenn Beck's response
It's too bad Joe couldn't manage to write on that napkin what a "dictionary monkey" is. If Klein is so adept at reading dictionary definitions you would think he could have taken even 5 seconds to identify an actual statement of sedition from either Palin or Beck. We know Chris Matthews isn't going to ask him for one, at this point the concept of Hardball only works for him when hes talking about or looking at shirtless pictures of Obama.
The only silver lining in this is...nobody freakin' heard it. Morons like Klein go on shows hosted by wannabe has-beens like Chris Matthews because their own audience is dropping faster than Matthews's Obamatons. The only reason anyone even knows about it is because talk radio and the blogosphere (guilty as charged) are crying about it. We can't help it...societal stupidity just can't go unchallenged.
Ronald Reagan only said "freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction" because Mike Judge's movie Idiocracy hadn't yet been invented by Joe Klein's of today.Add a comment
This is going to be totally non-political and off subject of The Looking Spoon's mission, but its something fun I wanted to share.
Seeing that today is Earth Day and considering all the earthquakes all over the world along with the volcano in Iceland I was reminded of an OLD cartoon I drew YEARS ago before I started getting fancy with my computer pen tablet and Photoshop...
There was a time where I only wanted to do gag cartoons like this one, but there are more important things to work on now.Add a comment
Now meet Obamaton, because
somebody something has to support Obama as his approval rating continues to plummet.
I'll figure out other things to do with him. YES YOU CAN follow the little guy on Twitter by clicking here.

I think I have an idea about where the left is coming from in its latest strain of character assassination the Tea Party has had to endure lately...
I'm obviously kidding around with regards to this picture...it has never been proven that liberals have crap for brains....
I know its kind of gross, but I'll go there because cartoonish poo isn't nearly as disgusting as the media's double standard on the Tea Party movement against the Federal government's liberal agenda that seems to be slowly lurching into Leftist-land.
You'll never see an editorial accusing bandanna clad black shirted thugs smashing windows at economic summits and screaming platitudes about corporate greed, war for profit, and their GOP lapdogs (in their opinion) as being William Ayers's apprentices, but the media has no problem linking house-wives with signs demanding that government get a grip on spending to the likes of Timothy McVeigh.
Either the left is operating on the insidious motives of stoking the flames of fear and encouragement....
They're just flat out scared stupid by the fact the Tea Party's message is working.
For the record I think its both.Add a comment
Recently, President Obama had a couple of events where he had a chance to
speak read his teleprompter to a bunch of people apparently born yesterday.
Oh it was a hoot, he read that same joke he's been telling for a month now about how he isn't seeing the Armageddon outside his window that conservatives promised when health care deform passed.
Oh it's just so funny! I wonder if after the first day of diagnosis a terminal medical patient that was given months to live would be so glib.
HAHA yeah right doc, MY ASS, I'm gonna die, I feel great and you're just a big fat quack so give me that chemo in a shot glass....I'll....gulp....show you.....
See I still have my hair! Look outside do YOU see Armageddon?!?
Just call me Mr. Right Now 'cuz I only live in the mom-...ulp...barfing now...but it's not the chemo, I'm just drunk on arrogance.
Speaking around the same time as the tax day Tea Party rallies Obama had this to say about those rallies (the video I found has been juxtaposed with a comment rising GOP star Paul Ryan.
So Barack thinks we should be thanking him....people who opt to give out trail mix instead of candy on Halloween expect a thank you too.
Even though I did indeed receive some BS $400 credit along with "95% of working families," (rich people don't work, apparently they just crap money like they're human ATM's). Now all I have to do now is figure out how that money going unspent on Uncle Barack is supposed to help me.
Is he still going to expect a thank you when his trillion dollar deficit exacerbating policies, not counting ObamaCare, will demand tax hikes for more than just the rich?
I've thought about this a bit and wondered if Obama even remotely has a point. Does he deserve thanks? After some thought I came up with a few reasons we can try to utter the word "thanks" a few times before we start to produce more vomit than a bulimia convention:
Thank you President Obama for making it cool to say, "I make teleprompters."
Thank you for bowing to world leaders in a show of humility and defying those who thought that position should be reserved for public restrooms and pornos.
Thank you for making political logos cool again, swastika ruined it for everyone for so long that they almost went the way of the 19th century corset wearing dodo bird working for the pony express.
Thank you for reminding us all that a generation after the end of the Cold War "socialism" is still a four letter word.
Also, thank you for letting Biden know "four letter word" is just an expression that can be used on any word as a euphamism for his favorite word...and he can stop trying to count the letters in
socialism soshallizm because the math wont work out anyway.
Thank you for a tagline that is easy to rhyme and therefore easy to mock. It would've been a lot harder if you used "orange," which for you it would've made just as much sense as using "hope" and "change."
Finally, for a while with President Bush we all thought government spending couldn't possibly get worse if he had literally taken all of our money and just threw it into some volcano in Ice...land.....huh......Well anyway, thank you Mr. President for making trillion the new billion.
I'm sure there are more reasons to thank the president, but all this thinking about it is giving me a headache...so thanks a lot for that too President Obama.Add a comment
When we deny Him
We self prevent
the truths that are
who founded U.S.
that the endowment of such
comes only from
If our Lord is
which way then
does the wind blow
Choose their hero
From the spiritual limbo
Of secularism's superior sanctimony
Until He has to leave the stage because we can't hear a single word He is saying.
So who then
will be the creator
of unalienable rights

If you told me a year ago that the tea party was going to be the movement that it is today I might not have believed it.I didn't think it was a passing phase or fad, but I just never expected it to sustain itself let alone actually organize.
Just when one would think the country is circling the drain of a White House toilet nick-named The Constitution, this truly American movement carrying the torch of truly American values explodes with nuclear fury over the nation and scares the poop out of liberals....or as I like to think of it, the Great Liberal Brain Drain.....
......I probably shouldn't be in charge of history books anytime this century.
Or maybe I should...for the last year liberals have dedicated so much of their media to painting the Tea Party as a bunch of dumb hicks who can't spell anything right on their signs (affectionately called teabonics).
UPDATE: It should be noted that there is very well founded speculation these signs are the product of liberal infiltrators instructed to make the party look like a bunch of buffoons by sites like crashtheteaparty.org.
Now the media is trying to paint them as a bunch of "well-educated" rich people.
If this brazen attempt to rewrite their script weren't so annoying I would be more concerned about such a weird admission coming from the political ideology that spends its time asserting it is the smartest person in the room. If these "dumb hick" teabonics speaking conservatives are better educated than the "general public" then where does that rank the intelligence of liberalism on a scale of 1 to teleprompter?
Either the Tea Party is stupid as or its smart. Whatever liberals want to label them one thing they definitely need to do is pick one and stick with it for once.
They did the same thing to George W. Bush, who was simultaneously the dumbest and most evil genius of a president we've ever had. They never know what they actually believe. They just know they hate conservatives and will SAY ANYTHING to get others to hate them too. Which begs the question if they actually know what they stand for in the first place.
It must really unnerve liberals that the Tea Party doesn't have any ambiguous one syllable tag line that can be made to say anything and nothing all at once. Their signs may be misspelled but at least they actually say something real.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Check out the Contract From America here to see what I mean.
Since liberals seem to understand symbols better how is this for a pretty picture?
Happy Tea Party Day!Add a comment
People have been abuzz about the photo of Obama bowing to Chinese President Hu Jintao. I don't actually on that level at all. It looked to me more like a nod of acknowledgment...
But what was he acknowledging?
For the record, I don't think (yet...yet) that Obama is a communist, and I know the hammer and sickle is a Soviet thing...but I thought it would make a fun little graphic...so the literalistic people out there...CHILL OUT.
I do, however, think with a fair degree of certainty he is a closet socialistAdd a comment
Lou Pritchett is a retired executive for Proctor and Gamble. He wrote an open letter to Presdient Obama and submitted it to the New York Times and was summarily ignored. Proving why the newspapers are dying the letter was posted online and is believed to have received over 500,000 hits, to say nothing of its appearance on countless other websites.
The moral of the story is if you want news to get out there don't ask for it to go it in a newspaper.
The letter is authentic and Pritchett more than vouches for it.
As a convenience to you the reader I have provided a way you can look at the letter through "lenses" that best reflect your political point of view. To use the Democrat pair of glasses (coincidentally on the left) or the normal glasses (coincidentally on the right) all you have to do is click and the letter will present itself in it's proper context.
Dear President Obama:
You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.
You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.
You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.
You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.
You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don't understand it at its core.
You scare me because you lack humility and 'class', always blaming others.
You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..
You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the 'blame America' crowd and deliver this message abroad.
You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.
You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.
You scare me because you prefer 'wind mills' to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.
You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.
You scare me because you have begun to use 'extortion' tactics against certain banks and corporations.
You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.
You scare me because you will not openly listen to, or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.
You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient. You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.
You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaugh's, Hannitys, O'Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.
You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.
Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.
Last January I came up with a series of posts inspired by the self explanatory hashtag on Twitter (follow my tweets here) #3WordsLiberalsHate.
The idea is to come up with the 3 word phrases that liberals would hate to hear or say. I wanted to put them in a way that they could exist on their own, but also in the context of a larger story. So here's a new set for a new season:
Must Support Israel
Beat Iran back
No bowing allowed
Peace through strength
Backwards nuclear policy
ObamaCare's health deform
No new taxes
17 minute responses
Teleprompter needs vacation
Change looks hopeless
Tea Parties mobilize
Dems lose Congress
Obama's only term
President Mitt Romney
President Newt Gingrich
President Sarah Palin
President Sean Hannity
President Ronald McDonald
President "Anyone Else"
Oh yeah...three more words they may not like to hear...
GUAM CAN'T CAPSIZE!
Here are links to the original series

We know he has placed restrictions to the nuclear option to almost never. So who is actually eligible to be nuked if they ever have the temerity to smack the Virginia Slim out of Barack's mouth?
Kim Jong Il's hair-do
