The New Scandal

I watch Hardball daily because I am a masochist, and I just learned from Chris Matthews that Obama “doesn’t do diners good” and doesn’t make that “regular connection.” Additionally, Matthews was mortified that Obama, when offered a coffee, declined and asked for an orange juice.

Kill me now. A couple more Hardball episodes and I may have to collapse the media and assholes categories into one all-encompassing category.

    That repetitive thunking sound you hear? It’s me slamming my forehead into my desk, over and over.

    Sweet Jesus Jumping Christ in a hopped-up sidecar. Your country is in a quagmire (giggity!) of a war, your economy is going down the toilet, your administration has approved the use of torture, and Chris Matthew is mortified because Obama wanted orange juice instead of coffee?
    Paris Hilton has more intellectual depth than that man. And better morals, too.

    I guess Tweets is shocked, shocked that the uppity senator showed no interest in bussing tables or washing the dishes.

    Unless he was referring to the actual patrons in the restaurant, but I’d rather not go there and neither would anyone else.

    I guess Chris Matthews forgot that there is a housing crisis, a war, we have an administration that has literally tried to suspend the Bill of Rights and Habeas Corpus and the Vice President, National Security Advisor, Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State and Director of the CIA conspired to commit war crimes.

    But Tweety isn’t about issues – he is about ratings. And issues are bummers and ratings disasters. The Black Guy not liking coffee is good for ratings. They’re all trying to sell audiences to advertisers, not trying to tell us anything important, after all.

    calipygian, if matthews actually had to talk about substantiative issues for a whole hour every day, he would literally have nothing to say. he is a vapid, incurious waste of airspace. he doesn’t talk about important things because he knows nothing about them and doesn’t really give a shit.

    And apparently after having been on, and seen his own shows on, TV for over a decade, he’s still mesmerized when he sees himself come on the screen.

    I just wish he were aware of that perfect comparison Atrios made about the Olbermann/Matthews pairing: the dog show hosts in Best in Show.

    The Apostasy of Reason

    You can’t decline the coffee, Chris says; ’tis an affront. If you want orange juice, ask for that in addition to the coffee.

    And I’m completely fucking mystified by that. This is one of the many ways in which being at a diner differs from going to a dinner party at the house of a rich doyenne . . . or attending court in the ancien regime: When someone asks if you want coffee in a diner, you can respond however you damn well please. Not in the mood for coffee? Big fucking deal. Prefer a coke or some OJ? Nobody’s offended . . . nobody cares.

    Big Head DC

    “Would you like some coffee?” a waitress asked Sen. Barack Obama at a small diner in Indiana this morning.

    “Nope,” he responded. “Give me some orange juice.”

    A witness said Obama came off awkward and arrogant during the exchange.

And a voice was screaming “Can I have some motherfucking Orange Juice? What do I have to do to get some motherfucking Orange Juice?” That’s when I knew this race was not going end well.

Hmmmm, can they make the scary black guy any scarier?

Obama and OJ both start with O, so there’s a link and since we know that Obama likes OJ, we can say it’s not too much of a leap of faith to say that Obama likes OJ Simpson. But wait.. OJ Simpson is a murderer, a felon, a crook! Obama likes OJ Simpson, that means.. uh.. Obama likes crime?! OBAMA LIKES CRIME! And we know that angry negros gravitates towards crime, then..then that means that Obama is an angry negro because angry negros and obama both like crime. HOLY SHIT, OBAMA IS AN ANGRY NEGRO! ZOMG!

    Read Hill is 44 ( dont get that title by the way )and I just cant get the hang of that bloggers writing. I have no idea what she’s going on about but her new post is:

    *The hypocritical saga of Obama once again talking out of both sides of his mouth was documented by Hillary supporter Campskunk. Campskunk quotes an Obama supporter surprised by reality:

    “By dusk on Wednesday, the California Obama campaign had purged almost all progressive anti-war activists from its delegate candidate lists. Names of candidates, people who had filed to run to represent Obama at the August Democratic Party National Convention, disappeared, not one by one, but hundreds at a time, from the Party web site listing the eligibles. The list of Obama delegate hopefuls in one northern California congressional district went from a robust 100 to an anemic 23, while in southern California, the list in Congressman Waxman’s district almost slipped out of sight, plunging from a high of 91 candidates to 17. Gone were strong women with independent political bases.”

    Marcy went on to state that the remaining candidates appeared to be mostly “bundlers and their girlfriends“.*

    Wondered what she was going on about. Sorry to put an anti-Obama post here, but didn’t know how to get a real world translation of the Obama bashing.
    Reason I read Balloon Juice, is its a mix of opinions, that doesn’t glorify Obama, but supports him without trying to destroy Hillary. That site is pure venom against one of their own party members. Its bizarre and mostly illegible reading…
    any help appreciated.

  73. 73
    Xenos says:

    Bedlam-

    if you take a site like Hillaryis44.com too seriously you will be worthy of your name. This kerfuffle seems to do with the Obama people narrowing down the delegates eligible to represent the Obama camp at the convention. Since Hillary has declared she will try to turn Obama’s delegates, they are making sure to get purely loyal people in there. This is taken as evidence of a secret ant-female / anti-progressive agenda by that well known crypto-fascist, Barack Hitler Obama.

    The Hillbots are trying to gin up scandals and controversies, but the wankers that they are they don’t have to finesse to do so in a slightly coherent manner.

    The 44 refers to the number of the next president – GHWBush was 41., Bill C. was 42, W is 43. Anyone notice that both Bushes are prime numbers? Must mean something for the numerologically inclined.

    From the Chris Matthews link:

    Matthews volunteered that he was in Cleveland a few years ago to speak at the Case Western Reserve University graduation. “But they didn’t give me an honorary degree,” Matthews said. “Can you believe that? I spoke at the graduation and didn’t get an honorary degree?” He gets a lot of honorary degrees, by the way — 19 if you’re counting, and guess who is counting?

    As we approached the airport gate, Matthews mentioned that he and his wife, Kathleen, have been contemplating a trip to Damascus. It’s something they have wanted to do for a long time. But he worries that he might make an inviting target for a kidnapper. “I can imagine getting some big-name media figure would be a big propaganda catch for them,” Matthews said. “You can imagine what the neocons would say if I were kidnapped. They’d be like, ‘See, Matthews, terrorism isn’t so funny now, is it?’ ”

    Well, how about that? Republicans were right all along. I’m a liberal, and if they could manage this, I would support the terrorists.

    Xenos says:

    Per Chaldean numerology, number 41 and 43 are unlucky, 42 refers to great prosperity, and 44 sounds like a recap of the W administration:

    This number is full of the gravest warnings for the future. It foreshadows disasters brought about by association with others; ruin by bad speculations, by partnerships, unions and bad advice. If it comes out in connection with future events one should carefully consider the path one is treading.

    So maybe W is really 44, and Gore’s non-presidency was an occulted 43. 46 sounds good, though:

    This is a good number and is symbolized as “the Sceptre.” It is a promise of authority, power and command. It indicates that reward will come from the productive intellect; that the creative faculties have sown good seeds that will reap a harvest. Persons with this “command” number at their back should carry out their own ideas and plans. It is a fortunate number if it appears in any connection with future events.

    Unfortunately, the same prediction applies to number 27, which was Taft. Without a prediction about giant bathtubs, I just don’t believe it.

  78. 78
    Cyrus says:

    So maybe W is really 44, and Gore’s non-presidency was an occulted 43. 46 sounds good, though:

    It’s hard to say. You could probably torture the math enough to move it around by two or three in either direction. I think the “official” way of counting presidents is to count two consecutive terms by the same president as one presidency, but not two nonconsecutive terms, which has happened. And that president who died after a month in office gets counted as president even though he was bedridden the whole time, but vice-presidents don’t get counted even if they were technically in charge for a couple hours while the president was in the hospital or something. I recall lots of only-half-jokingly-horrified posts a year or two ago when Bush was in surgery and therefore more incapacitated than usual, so Cheney was presiding.

    A couple more Hardball episodes and I may have to collapse the media and assholes categories into one all-encompassing category.

    Actually, they are not one category, but “assholes” is the major category within which “the media” exists. That is, it is possible to be an asshole without being in the media, but all the media are assholes.

    So when you meet an asshole, you have to be careful to determine if he/she is “the media,” but when you encounter the “media,” you do not have to investigate further.

    Remember the output of assholes and of the media. They are identical.

    The Holy Cross/kidnapping/honorary degree stuff is all of a piece. Absolutely nothing happens in the world of media, sports, art, or dog poop that involves Chris Matthews that does not get big air time on Hardball. Let SNL run a political piece which includes the standard Chris Matthews impersonation and you WILL see it replayed that Monday, probably several times, on Hardball, complete with Chris’ gauzy reflections on “how well he does me.” He is a very sick man, and is presently terrified of, especially, Keith, who continues to rocket past him in ratings, despite not being, in Chris’ view, anywhere near the ‘intellect’ he is.
