Caption This!

This photo is probably rapidly circulating the internet today!

From the Drudge Report:

With a week to go until the Texas and Ohio primaries, stressed Clinton staffers circulated a photo over the weekend of a "dressed" Barack Obama.

The photo, taken in 2006, shows the Democrat frontrunner fitted as a Somali Elder, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya.

The senator was on a five-country tour of Africa.

"Wouldn't we be seeing this on the cover of every magazine if it were HRC?" questioned one campaign staffer, in an email obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.

In December, the campaign asked one of its volunteer county coordinators in Iowa to step down after the person forwarded an e-mail falsely stating that Barack Obama is a Muslim.

Update from Drudge:

Obama campaign manager David Plouffe quickly accused the Clinton campaign Monday of 'shameful offensive fear-mongering' for circulating the snap.

Clinton campaign manager Maggie Williams responds: "If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed."


And then there is this:

Farrakkan Praises Obama as "Hope of Entire World."


CHICAGO — In his first major public address since a cancer crisis, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the “hope of the entire world” that the U.S. will change for the better. The 74-year-old Farrakhan, former leader of the black Muslim group, never endorsed Obama outright, but spent much of his nearly two-hour speech Sunday to an estimated crowd of 20,000 people praising the Illinois senator.

“This young man is the hope of the entire world that America will change and be made better,” he said. “This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow. If you look at Barack Obama’s audiences and look at the effect of his words, those people are being transformed.”

Let's look at this sentence:

"This young man is capturing audiences of black and brown and red and yellow."

Umm....where's the mention of "the white folks?" it is!

Farrakhan compared Obama to the religion’s founder, Fard Muhammad, who also had a white mother and black father.
“A black man with a white mother became a savior to us,” he told the crowd of mostly followers. “A black man with a white mother could turn out to be one who can lift America from her fall.”

So....according to Farrakhan, as long as a politician is not all white, then he becomes a "savior" in the eyes of this former Nation of Islam leader?


I'm sure that the Obama camp must be thinking...with "friends" like these...who needs enemies?


On a totally unrelated note (or is it???) a friend of mine sent me the following humorous email.

Happy Monday! ;-)



The Bathtub Test

During a visit to the mental asylum,

a visitor asked the Director,

'How do you determine whether

or not a patient should be


'Well,' said the Director, 'we fill up

a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon,

a teacup and a bucket to the

patient and ask him or her to

empty the bathtub.'

'Oh, I understand,' said the visitor.

'A normal person would use the

bucket because it's bigger than

the spoon or the teacup.'

''No,' said the Director. 'A normal

person would pull the plug.

"Would you like a bed near a window?"




(Obama staffer whispers: "wish we could put that plug into Farakkhan's mouth!")

Black Leader: Democratic Party Architect of Racism"

Now...that's something that one would never hear at an Obama rally!

How strange that people like commenter "John," in a previous thread, would state:

Civil rights movement era: 1950's-present
Liberal ideals drove the biggest change in American society since the Civil War, the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s. All Americans who believe in freedom and opportunity cannot help but be inspired by the valiant struggles of MLK and others.

Yet incorrectly claim this:

Also recall if you will that the major opponents of civil rights were conservatives.

I know know if the picture is proof of anything beyond a lapse in judgement, but that's ok, any person willing to take an in depth, honest look at this man, will find more than enough to be frightened of.

The more articles that I read about Obama's record of votes in the Senate, the more horrified I become that this guy is running for president!

Check this out:

Obama: More Taxes, Rights for bin Laden

Note this portion:

To be sure, Obama is a master at seeming to appeal to all sides. But his voting record makes it clear he is a doctrinaire liberal who sees minorities as victims and the government as the solution to all problems — except when it comes to protecting us from terrorist attacks.

According to the National Taxpayers Union, Obama has proposed at least $287 billion a year in new government spending. That does not include his more recent $150 billion “green energy plan.” He also co-sponsored a Senate bill to spend at least $845 billion a year to fight global poverty.

Obama would pay for these increases with much higher taxes, including by allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire in 2010.

And, the following excerpt reveals something much WORSE!!!

Like a 6-year-old kid who wants to be friends with everyone on the block, Obama has said he would offer prompt negotiations with anti-American despots. More frightening, Obama voted last August to give Osama bin Laden and other terrorists the same rights as Americans when it comes to intercepting their overseas calls in order to pick up clues needed to stop another attack.

Obama recently avoided voting on extending the Protect America Act, thus putting America at risk when immediate interception of terrorist communications is required.

Obama would withdraw immediately from Iraq, leaving that country to morph into a haven for al-Qaida and a staging ground for attacks on America.
