I feel like I got broadsided with this new Hippie Punch-Gate thing going on in the liberal inner sphanctum (that's no a typo...think about it). Apparently David Axelrod got some frisky from a liberal blogger who is tired of Obama forcing them to do the electoral walk of shame(?)
That tension burst out into the open when [Crooks and Liars blogger Susan] Madrak directly asked Axelrod: "Have you ever heard of hippie punching?" That prompted a long silence from Axelrod.
"You want us to help you, the first thing I would suggest is enough of the hippie punching," Madrak added. "We're the girl you'll take under the bleachers but you won't be seen with in the light of day."
This caused a lot of confusion. Especially since I thought hippies wouldn't be able to even use computers unless they figured out how to convert them into bongs.
So after a day or some of stirring the pot (pun intended) Madrak finally answered the question of what a hippie punch is.
Basically, after Axelrod told us how wonderful we were and how much they needed us to close the enthusiasm gap in this election, I called him on it. Like, yo Dave, here we are, liberal activists who give money and GOTV, and the White House needs to punch us in public so no one thinks they take us seriously?
She could've saved us all some trouble if she had put it in way that actually made sense, like dippie punch.
She also could've said donkey punch. This was her chance to do for women what Richard Pryor did for the "n-word."
I may start using it anyway...you know...for the good of liberal women everywhere of course.

I write to you today to urge you to reject the Republican's Pledge for America. First off, whats this "for America" garbage? That's not very self-aggrandizing...is it? What gives? Where's the self worship? Did they not learn anything from me? I put the ME in America!
There's also no personality behind it. For crying out loud I made women swoon for CHANGE (they didn't know I actually meant bus fare, but whatever).
That said here are a few reasons you need to reject the Pledge for America.
So there you have it America. I strongly suggest you consider these reasons, and by "strongly" I mean "don't make me get all Orwell up in here!" (Michelle came up with that one)
President Barack Obama
Oh yeah and God Bless Americcccccaaaaaa...GREAT! I just gacked all over my brand new golf balls. Thanks a lot America!
I guess I'm on an Obama-basketball kick today...but I'm not really sure if he plays basketball because he likes it...I really think he's trying to hide something else....
I can't quite put my finger on it....Add a comment
So liberals as usual had it wrong, apparently Recovery Summer was so last year...
The downturn officially ended, and the recovery officially began, in June 2009, according to an announcement Monday by the official arbiter of economic turning points. Since that point, total output — the amount of goods and services produced by the United States — has increased, as have many other measures of economic activity.
But nonfarm payrolls are still down 329,000 from their level at the recession’s official end 15 months ago, and the slow growth in recent months means that the unemployed still have a long slog ahead.

Before liberals start teaching Biden how to count so he wont be so confused at the concept of "high-five" I have a question that I know will leave me mighty perplexed as we enter into the fall and beyond and we are admonished it is Obama's policies that are improving things....
If the recession officially ended 4 months into Obama's presidency there there can't be any honest rationale that can be used to say any of his initiatives worked quickly enough to end it, right? So if economic growth remains anemic despite being in recovery...to what extent are Obama's policies getting in the way of such things?
In other words...are Obama's policies actually doing ANYTHING good?!?
The recession may officially be "over," but 82% of us apparently know better. That's because the job situation has remained virtually unchanged since the year before Obama kicked off this year's Recovery
Summer Bummer celebration.
How can businesses hire when they have to take money that would go for jobs, and give it to grabby Uncle Sam instead? Obama keeps saying he got us out of that freakin' ditch, and maybe that would at least feel believable if he wasn't trying to tow his proverbial car with the wet noodle of tax hikes to paper over his out-of-this-solar-system deficit spending.
But I'm just a blogger, so what do I know <------(psst).
I don't know, maybe I'm just being impatient, but it seems to me that there is driving, then there is driving with the parking brake on, and then there is clutching the steering wheel and screaming "VROOOOOOOOOM!" in a car with the engine missing.
I do know this, conservatives are tired of telling liberals who know absolutely nothing about economics (which is, by the way, practically scientific fact now) and get to be put in charge of money "I told you so" so much they sound like Rahm Emmanuel dropping f-bombs.Add a comment

Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday he sees parallels between today's tea party and his own campaign for the White House in 1976. But he doesn't think the movement will be much of a factor beyond this fall's elections.
The Georgia Democrat told The Associated Press he rode a wave of voter discontent to the presidency on the heels of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal that felled President Richard Nixon, much like tea party conservatives are now earning support by voicing anger at the nation's economic woes.
Check out the rest at Breitbart.
Seriously though, I think he might actually have a legitimate point, because I see the parallels too...
Thanks high school geometry!Add a comment
