Ask Mrs. O’Sadly




Posted at 21:51 by Gavin M.

RedState asks:

Why is Nigeria 5th in foreign web users at barackobama.com? [...] Is there a huge scam eminating from Nigeria???

Dear Mr. State,

Maybe so.


Planck’s Constant asks:

But what about all the millions of Democrats – they can’t all be anti-American – why would they be giving money to a person who is barely qualified to run a Harlem barbershop? Can they all be that stupid? Do they really want a closet communist whose friends and spiritual mentors are anti-American terrorists and Jew-hating demagogues to be President of this country? Can they all be that naive or blind?

Dear Mr. Constant,

You seem to be assuming that running a Harlem barber shop is easy. Instead of scissors, you have to rely on clippers to a remarkable degree. And, well, let’s go to Black Hair Media, the website for “Hair Care and Beauty Information for Women of Color” and see what they’re talking about these days:

McCain’s Current Adviser Endorses Obama

The Wall Street Journal today rounds up the horde of prominent Republicans jumping ship to Barack Obama. Now one of John McCain’s actual advisers has switched sides:

Charles Fried, a professor at Harvard Law School, has long been one of the most important conservative thinkers in the United States. Under President Reagan, he served, with great distinction, as Solicitor General of the United States. Since then, he has been prominently associated with several Republican leaders and candidates, most recently John McCain, for whom he expressed his enthusiastic support in January.

This week, Fried announced that he has voted for Obama-Biden by absentee ballot. In his letter to Trevor Potter, the General Counsel to the McCain-Palin campaign, he asked that his name be removed from the several campaign-related committees on which he serves. In that letter, he said that chief among the reasons for his decision “is the choice of Sarah Palin at a time of deep national crisis.”

TPM has the press releases touting Fried’s presence on the McCain campaign.

Does that answer the rest of your questions?

Also, Black Hair Media officially wins the Internet:


James4America asks:

Why was the PACER system “links” in the Berg v. Obama docket disabled just MOMENTS before the decision was faxed out? Is it possible that the Judge had actually issued a DIFFERENT ruling, and was FORCED to issue the one that was sent to him? …Does this explain the comments from the Obama camp all through Friday the 24th that ALL Obstacles to the White House had been overcome, and “they now had a clear path.”?

Dear Mr. 4America,

Indeed, who will watch the watchers? Please add your research to the Obama Death List and email it to all the AOL.com, WalMartConnect, and CompuServe addresses in your email address book. Your ideas are intriguing to us and we wish to subscribe to your newsletter.


Pat Buchanan asks:

What if ‘SNL’ mocked Michelle Obama? [...] ‘Saturday Night Live’ would be facing hate-crime charges.

Dear Mr. Buchanan,

That’s exactly why they’ll never do that.


Gateway Pundit asks:

The LA Times has video of Obama toasting a former PLO operative at a Jew-bash but will not release the video. This is outrageous. Obviously, this video would do great damage to Obama who struggles with Jewish voters due to his circle of close anti-Semitic friends. Maybe this is the reason it is not being released?

Dear Mr. Pundit.

Probably. We went to a Jew bash once, but got freaked out when they stomped on the glassware and carried the guy around on the chair.

We also visited a Judo master and, um, something about Jujubes, except we can’t decide how to set that one up, so there you go.


Mark Levin asks:

The question is whether enough Americans understand what’s at stake in this election and, if they do, whether they care. Is the allure of a charismatic demagogue so strong that the usually sober American people are willing to risk an Obama presidency?

Mr. Levin,

‘Usually sober’ is also a good way to describe the sawed-off fireplug of bad legal reasoning and hysterical self-promotion that sits in the farted-out office chair of Mark Levin. …Yes, that’s what someone might say who wished to lower his or herself to rudeness. For our part, we would rather say that whenever… Wait, ssh! What was that noise?

Oh my God, hide under your desk, Mr. Levin. Hide under a coat on the coat rack. No, no, in here; in this closet. No, leave your shoe. Get in! Get in! Just squeeze in! It’s Dalia Lithwick, and she looks hungry!

Um, yes, where were we? ‘Usually sober’ is also a good way to describe the sawed-off fireplug of bad legal reasoning and hysterical self-promotion that sits in the farted-out office chair of the closeted Mark Levin.

    Why is Nigeria 5th in foreign web users at barackobama.com?

    Hmm. Maybe someone at RedState might want to check out factors such as population and internet access.

    Here is a list of the top 10 populated countries in Africa:

    Pos Country Population
    - Africa 934,283,426

    1 Nigeria 135,031,164
    2 Egypt 80,335,036
    3 Ethiopia 76,511,887
    4 Congo-Kinshasa 65,751,512
    5 South Africa 43,997,828
    6 Tanzania 39,384,223
    7 Sudan 39,379,358
    8 Kenya 36,913,721
    9 Morocco 33,757,175
    10 Algeria 33,333,216

    Now, as shocking as it may be to consider, it is actually more likely that one might use the InterToobz in the much more urbanized and developed Nigeria than Democratic Republic of Congo or Sudan, even though both the latter countries have a lot of people. The top 5 African nations in terms of InterToobz users seem to include, in order, Nigeria, Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, and Algeria.

    So the question ought be why is Nigeria, with the greatest population and the greatest number of InterToobz users merely #5 among African users of barackobama.com?

    These people are so f***ing stupid I’m amazed they don’t forget how to use doorknobs each f***ing day. Or maybe they do, and leave themselves notes, if they can remember how to read.

    Can we take a moment and remember that McCain was by far the *least* revolting of the GOP candidates?

    Candidates such as:
    Rudy Giuliani: huge douchebag
    Sam Brownback: wingnut extraordinaire
    Duncan Hunter: doesn’t like Mexicans very much
    Mike Huckabee: crazy person
    Ron Paul: crazy person
    Mitt Romney: possibly a robot
    Fred Thompson: never quite sure if he was actually running

    It’s absolutely mind-boggling to me that the GOP managed in spite of themselves to nominate the best candidate — adored by the media, perceived as a reasonable moderate — and then piss away that advantage for no reason at all. Thanks guys!

    Mr. President McCain’s new victory song:

    It’s a sign of the times
    that your love for me is getting so much stronger.
    It’s a sign of the times
    and I know that I won’t have to wait much longer.

    You changed a love, somehow,
    from the one I used to know.
    For when you hold me now,
    I feel like you never wanna let me go.

    It’s a sign of the times
    that you call me up whenever you feel lonely.
    It’s a sign of the times
    that you tell your friends that I’m your one and only.

    I’ll never understand
    the way you treated me.
    But when I hold your hand
    I know you couldn’t be the way you used to be!

    Maybe my love-kissed star
    at last decided to shine!
    Maybe somebody knows
    how long I’ve waited to make you mine!

    um-um-um

    -musical interlude-

    I’ll never understand
    the way you treated me.
    But when I hold your hand
    I know you couldn’t be the way you used to be!

    Maybe my love-kissed star
    at last decided to shine!
    Maybe somebody knows
    how long I’ve waited to make you mine!

    It’s a sign of the times
    that you kiss me now as if you really mean it.
    It’s a sign of the times
    and a year ago I never could have seen it.

    Don’t ever change your mind
    and take your love away.
    Just leave the past behind
    and, baby, only think of how it is today!

    It’s a sign of the times!
    It’s a sign of the times!
    It’s a sign of the times!

    I remember that frequently, and often feel grateful that he was chosen. Both because if the worst should happen and he did win, he’d have been less scary than the others. But mostly because I figured he was the least palatable to the fringy base lunatics, so he’d be weak in the general election.

    I’ve been taken completely by surprise at the magnitude of clusterbuggery his campaign has become, but I didn’t see the two biggest knocks (IMO) to it coming – the financial meltdown and the Palin pick. Wow. Just wow.

    Mcain pissed away his lead. Immediately after he was nominated, the democratic primaries were still going on, and getting rather bloody. He had a built in advantage there, and the chance to get his act together earlier. If he had made a VP pick early, which satisfied the base AND wasn’t a complete flake, he could have got the republican base organised and working hard before Obama even had the nomination.

    Obama was building the start of his ground campaign during the primaries, and the majority of the Hillary supporters joined in soon enough for the past turmoil not to matter at all. It helped that Obama actually had a good organisational structure which encouraged participation, and gave the Hillary supporters something to join in on.

    Mcain on the other hand, didn’t have an organisation ready and waiting to embrace and organise the base. If he got his nomination by fighting for it, perhaps he would have had a coherent organisation. But since he won by default as the least awful candidate, he didn’t really have that.

    Obama was a community organiser. And that is how he is winning the election. Organising communities. Mcain however, couldn’t organise a pissup in a brewery.

    Sarah Palin is an intelligent, articulate, multi-talented, charismatic attractive women. She can speak to the hearts of everyman because she is the only candidate who truly IS everyman( or woman). She came from a loving family who obviously instilled in her, family values and a love for her Country. She has no hidden agenda, she is not duplicitous. She speaks from her heart, and when I hear her speak I feel I am listening to the old America, the America of values, work ethic and the pioneering spirit. Her parents were teachers and her husband works on the pipe line and has a small fishing business. She can identify, like no other candidate in a very long time, with the “average”American. She knows what it’s like to be on a budget, struggle with bills, get up at night with a sick child. She has done all of this.

    The media has made this accomplished admirable women their target de jour. I feel the criticisms she receives from women are based on jealousy. How can a women possess all these attributes AND be attractive, HOW DARE HER!!!! Why do some people feel they have to destroy Sarah Palin? In destroying Palin, does this give them some form of satisfaction? Does this make them feel superior in some way? Are they intimidated by her attractiveness? She can’t help it if she is a good looking women? Should she shave her head, put in false buck teeth, and wear a sack cloth, would she be more acceptable then? America was, at one time, a country who would have celebrated Palin’s obvious attributes, now, in the climate of Obama, anything good and clean and wholesome must be destroyed.

    The politics of clothing envy are on display by the PARTY of ENVY and CLASS WARFARE. Let me ask you something, in-the-tank-for-Obama Left Wingers:

    Do you REALLY want to compare Gov. Palen’s style and grace with Michele Obama’s lack of style (no matter where she buys her clothes), her DEAD greasy hair and horrible figure problems?

    Really, I don’t think you want to go there, so knock it off if you are smart.

    Now, back to Obama’s “socialism.” Are you SURE it isn’t really COMMUNISM? Let’s consider his “Uncle” mentor (Rev. Wright) who learned his “Church Doctrrine” from Commie, Rev. Crone, who was HIS mentor. Then there are his CLOSE associations with Ayers and wife, unrepentent terrorists. They kicked off his political career. Obama shared an office with Ayers, wrote a glowing book report for him and they spent a LOT of time giving speeches to Left Wing “activist” organizations.

    Barney Frank is an ADMITTED Socialist with whom Obama never disagreed on any vote in the Senate, when he bothered to be there to vote or didn’t just vote “present.” His voting record is 97% NOT “reaching across the aisle,” but straight Party Line which earned him the title of “Most Liberal Senator in America.” H

    Obama came straight out of the NOTORIOUSLY crooked Democrat Party Chicago Machine, including his being an attorney and activists for ACORN! So, of course he fit right in with the national Demo Party Machine run by the worst rated Congress in the entire history of this nation. Obama hired an ACORN subsidiary to the tune of over $800,000 to “get out the vote.” ACORN creeps have been jailed in the last three elections and Obama CANNOT deny his ties to those criminals.

    Let us not forget how Obama stressed his BLACK background (African connections) to fool Black voters in the primaries. Now? We never hear a word about his Father, half brother and multiple other Black relatives in Africa, do we?

    He wants to spread the wealth around to whom? If he, Soros, Bill Gates and other fabulously rich supporters really gave a rat about our economy, why aren’t they spreading their wealth around to home owners who are in trouble instead of buying our election with the full cooperation of the WELL PAID (for adds) media. Follow the money trail and watch the in-the-tank media lining their pockets with his TV Ads.

    Why has it never occurred to anyone else that Obama is BUYING the media to be in the tank for him? The “Big Three” are just as guilty of greed and averice as ANY group on Wall Street! What about the main stream media being bought and paid for with all those Ads paid for by Hollywood millionaires, sports stars and other “instant genius political mavins?”

    Guess who bought into bought and paid for Obama media propaganda in mainstream media that will do anything for money? YOU DID, dupes and fools that you are.

    That is the thing Mikey.. Attacks on Pakistan are nothing new. An attack on Syria IS new. More of the same old crap is unlikely to be politically significant.. Unless they really HAVE got bin laden this time (har har)

    Since Orange Tom mentioned it, I checked, and Syria DO have a defensive pact with Iran. It seems unlikely Iran would stick their necks out for such a small incident, but if they even give the USA a disapproving glare, fox news will magnify it into a WMD laserbeam of nukular death.

    I know, I know.. This DOES all sound far too subtle for Dubya. However, if it isn’t politically motivated, it could still have unintended consequences.

    I must admit to being a little on edge at the moment.. Dubya hasn’t really done anything yet to help Mcain. Except, of course, by keeping well away from him. I am still half expecting something to drastic to happen, so excuse me for being jumpy.

    Ok, looks like you got it straight. You’re actually making my point for me — we attack Pakistan two or three times a week. Do we attack Syria two or three times a week? Attacking Syria is a serious escalation of the war. There is such a thing as escalating tensions, bringing foreign policy to the fore, without a full scale war.

    Michelle Obama is teh hawt. If I were going to be jealous of anyone in this election, it would be her. Sarah Palin isn’t even particularly bright, just very politically shrewd, and completely willing to say anything (no matter how glaringly false) to appeal to people who aren’t terribly bright either.

    Yup. I usually hate Christopher Hitchens’ neoconnish articles but his take on Sarah Palin is hilariously on-target:

    “And the only public events that have so far featured his absurd choice of running mate have shown her to be a deceiving and unscrupulous woman utterly unversed in any of the needful political discourses but easily trained to utter preposterous lies and to appeal to the basest element of her audience.”

    Why was the PACER system “links” in the Berg v. Obama docket disabled just MOMENTS before the decision was faxed out?

    Could be anything from routine maintenance to the fact that the E.D. Pa didn’t want wingnuts swamping their system with inquiries for info that was already released to the mainstream media. (This is the Clerk of Court’s decision, and similar measures have been taken in other districts for high profile cases.) You also have to have a PACER account to log in, or you will be kicked off when you try to access the cases.

    Is it possible that the Judge had actually issued a DIFFERENT ruling, and was FORCED to issue the one that was sent to him? …

    Unless it is a dispositive motion, the movant submits an unsigned copy of the proposed order he would like the judge to issue with his motion, declaration, and a supporting memorandum of legal points and authorities. The orders can be submitted by e-mail if the judge allows, or by FAX. Sometimes the judges use them in their entirety; sometimes they have their clerks supplement or research a new order. It depends on how well-written the order is, and how full the dockets are.

    Does this explain the comments from the Obama camp all through Friday the 24th that ALL Obstacles to the White House had been overcome, and “they now had a clear path.”?

    No. Obama’s citizenship was never an issue, as his mother was a U.S. Citizen. The fact that the wingnuts couldn’t even get past “standing” to the justiciable issue meant this case was a non-starter from the get-go. If it weren’t for fact that the politics were so smothered with wingnut ignorance, the Court would have probably hit the petitioners with Rule 11 sanctions for filing a frivolous suit.

    SecurityMom’s writing style needs help.

    Take this, for example:
    Let us not forget how Obama stressed his BLACK background (African connections) to fool Black voters in the primaries. Now? We never hear a word about his Father, half brother and multiple other Black relatives in Africa, do we?
    The point is clear enough, but it needs more emphasis:
    Let us not forget how Obama stressed his BLACK background (African connections) to fool BLACK voters in the BLACK primaries. Now? We never hear a BLACK word about his BLACK Father, BLACK half brother and multiple other BLACK relatives in BLACK Africa, do we? BLACK BLACK BLACK!

    Or take this:
    Guess who bought into bought and paid for Obama media propaganda in mainstream media that will do anything for money? YOU DID, dupes and fools that you are.
    It’s incoherent. Nothing wrong with incoherence, of course, but if you go that route you should go all the way. Learn from the Time Cube guy, a true master of gibberish:
    ONEism IS A DEATH TRAP for Mom and Dad Opposites. You’re Educated ONE Nitwits, I possess Math & Science Proof.

    Or take this:
    Obama came straight out of the NOTORIOUSLY crooked Democrat Party Chicago Machine, including his being an attorney and activists for ACORN!

    Jeezus, some people simply CANNOT learn. It’s like they simply don’t have the capability. One wonders if they need a GPS device to find their way home from work every day.

    I gather bernie’s premise is that a President Obama may not use America’s offensive military capabilities to deter small, asymetric terror attacks. And for that reason we are likely to suffer very high levels of terrorism, possibly (probably?) including the destruction of one or more cities with nuclear weapons.

    While it is true that bush/cheney have used america’s offensive military power in response to 9/11, and it can rightly be said there has not been a large-scale terror attack on american soil since then. However if you believe this correlation is causation, then you probably believe that global warming IS caused by the reduction in pirates.

    It is possible there will be another terror attack on the US, albeit much smaller in effect than 9/11, but it is VERY unlikely that an effective, functioning nuclear weapon will be built and delivered. And if anything has become obvious, it’s that terror is NOT a problem you can solve with large-scale military operations, but rather with law enforcement, intelligence gathering, diplomacy, a more honest and even-handed foreign policy and very small, focused, quiet and deadly specops strikes when the opportunity is available.

    Once you accept that the bush doctrine was wasteful and counterproductive, you will realize that President Obama will do a much better job of national counter-terrorism than the belligerent idiocy we have seen the last eight years.

    And as long as people were able to make small groups of violent anti-americans into the number one issue facing america, requiring unlimited expenditures to prevent a relatively few deaths, there was no hope for making the lives of americans better. And so they have not been made better. And while all eyes were focused on “a few thousand guys in caves”, the infrastructure broke, the economy melted down and it is OUR people who are living in poverty, without health care, education or hope.

    The question finally had to be raised. Why is it that we have encouraged spending American’s money on all these foreign adventures, and so many cry out in genuine fear and anger when we propose spending American’s money on Americans?

    At long last, it is indeed time for change…

    My shame is manifest – by the discord in the multiverse that my clumsy trope has spawned, I have brought disgrace upon my clan & shall be banished into the netherworld with my catalogue of sins unshriven.

    Yet to have evoked a blithe & wistful sigh, even if only via the hyperkinetic proxy of Jet Li, is recompense aplenty.

    (pedantry is teh hawt)

    ‘Usually Sober’ would be a good name for a Puritan in a historical novel.

    “Do they really want a closet communist whose friends and spiritual mentors are anti-American terrorists and Jew-hating demagogues to be President of this country?”

    Wait, he’s a closet communist? Does this mean he advocates closets for each according to their need? I’ll vote for that!
