The Whistle Done Broke From Overuse

They aren’t even bothering with dog whistles anymore:

The “evil eye” has very specific connotations in the Muslim world. Hell, it was one of the very few things I was actually taught in the Army before Operation Positive Force.

    For those of you that don’t know…

    from wiki:
    In some forms, it is the belief that some people can bestow a curse on victims by the malevolent gaze of their magical eye. The most common form, however, attributes the cause to envy, with the envious person casting the evil eye doing so unintentionally. Also the effects on victims vary. Some cultures report afflictions with bad luck; others believe the evil eye can cause disease, wasting away, and even death. In most cultures, the primary victims are thought to be babies and young children, because they are so often praised and commented upon by strangers or by childless women. The late UC Berkeley professor of folklore Alan Dundes has explored the beliefs of many cultures and found a commonality — that the evil caused by the gaze is specifically connected to symptoms of drying, desiccation, withering, and dehydration, that its cure is related to moistness, and that the immunity from the evil eye that fish have in some cultures is related to the fact that they are always wet.[1] His essay “Wet and Dry: The Evil Eye” is a standard text on the subject.

    BEWARE THE OBAMA ‘EVIL EYE’
    Tue Jun 30 2009 07:43:56 ET

    As the summer begins, White House watchers have spotted a new look by President Obama: The Evil Eye!

    Staffers have joked about the menacing glance, which comes when the president meets with world leaders who are not aligned with his progressive view.

    White House photographers have captured the “evil eye” in recent weeks, during sessions with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Colombia’s Alvaro Uribev.

    Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi got hit with the commander’s malocchio last week in the Oval office.

    And at least one White House reporter has been on the receiving end of the daggers during a press conference.

    Developing…

    Now, forgive me if I am a little rusty on my DrudgeSpeak, but that makes it sound as though, that isn’t Matt’s writing; this is an excerpt from a “piece” that might appear in the mainstream media tonight or tomorrow. If so, that’s going to be telling. Anyone have a Wednesday column due? Anyone?

    Nah, I think it depends on the parents – it seems to alternate genders and generations in my family (my grandfather, my mother, and my brother all have the stink-eye down pat). I have, however, developed a Mom Look that quells 6-year-old boys instantly, even when they’re not my own. It’s my husband who has to resort to yelling.

    I suspect Sasha’s alleged sassiness and Obama’s Look are interrelated phenomena.

    Also, common in Mexico. This will validate them – they knew he was an illegal, they just got the country wrong. And now he’s doubly dangerous – not just a secret muslim, but a mexican too!

    MNPundit says:

    TPM LOVES to show pictures of the evil eye on their front page. Almost everytime they put an Obama picture up, he’s giving someone the evil eye.

    Wingnuts apparently study Obama like the ancients searched the skies. Bush was so easy to get – he was just a flat out moran and as subtle as a turd. Dick “dick” Cheney was puppeteering from his bunker, so there was nothing to puzzle about, which lulled the wingnuts to sleep for 8 years, aroused occasionally for reflexive full arm salutes. Now, Obama’s every word is parsed, every image is scrutinized, every glance is laden with meaning, and they don’t understand that Obama has turned each one of them into a self parodying Rohrschach test for our unending amusement. The most ardent sufferer of Bush Derangement Syndrome came nowhere near to being this hysterical.

    Obama-fu is strong in this one.

    oh really says:

    For some reason I clicked on the Drudge link. During my extremely brief visit, I saw the link to Rasmussen’s latest “Presidential Approval Index.”

    Leave it to Rasmussen to come up with an “index” that is specifically designed to make Obama look as unpopular as possible.

    Apparently, Americans who merely approve of the job Obama is doing don’t count. Only those who strongly approve. The same for disapproval. Of course we know that most Wingers are going to strongly disapprove of Obama no matter what he does — it’s not like Republicans are skilled at nuance.

    Of course, even Rasmussen has the number of people who approve of Obama’s job performance exceeding the number who disapprove by 8% (by far the lowest of the major pollsters), but only those who “strongly approve” are worth counting. Hence, the “Presidential Approval Index.” I’d be curious to see their questions: “Even though Barrack Hussein Obama is an avowed Muslim terrorist who wants to rape your daughter, do you approve of his job performance?”

    I’m going out on a limb here and speculating that if Obama’s numbers shifted and the number of strong disapprovals went way down, while the number of mild disapprovals went way up, Rasmussen would discovered the “Improved Presidential Approval Index” in which strong disapprovals and approvals would be discarded. Jeebus, don’t they even think it’s important to pretend anymore?

    I’d love to see Rasmussen’s “White Supremacist’s Presidential Approval Index” — it would be sooooo informative. I suppose a close approximation could be achieved by simply looking at nothing but Republicans.

    Things have really gone to hell, when even the pollsters are faking it.

    I’ve got to learn how to do those particular expressions — I’d much rather be able to resort to the evil eye rather than the yelling. Or is it one of those things that you either have or you don’t, like the ability to roll your tongue?

    Yeah. Is Drudge trying to say Obama is gay? There’s a story in the Qur’an about The Evil Eye.

    Long ago two Muslim dudes, Sahl and Amir, were out in the heat when Sahl decided to ghusl (ritual bathing). Watching, Amir had a gay moment while eyeing Sahl’s light skin and tan lines essentially saying “Holy shit you’re hot like a virgin!” Always thinking of virgins, aren’t they?

    Anyway, evil eyed, Sahl face plants. Mohammed (the Prophet one) shows up and after finding Amir asks “WTF were you doing coveting this guy’s body?” In lieu of Hail Marys, Mohammed told Amir to do wudu. Sahl recovered then he and Mohammed walked off leaving Amir behind. I’m thinking maybe someone else needed to wudu later.

    @Tsulagi, #64:
    Thanks for the story; but isn’t that the Haditha rather than the Koran? (I exercise the privilege of the ancient in spelling it as it was spelled for the first 50-some years that I saw the word.) It’s the collected sayings of the Prophet rather than the actual Scripture, and officially less official, I think, though still official enough for a lot to be based on it — including the prohbition on alcohol, according to what I’ve read.

    I can’t hear of the Evil Eye without thinking of the first context I saw it in: Evil-Eye Fleegle,
    an occasional character in Li’l Abner when I was about 7 or 8. At one point he was employed as a major-league pitcher and put his skills to use applying the double whammy to a slugger. I believe Dennis Eckersley is his bastard son.

    Obama’s a closet Italian? An agent of Berlusconi? …You’d think the wingnuts would be OK with that.

    And since dread Cthulhu was mentioned I have to post these.

    Who Will Be Eaten First? in which Jack T. Chick warns us about the coming of the elder gods.

    Galactus is Coming! in which Stan Lee and Jack T. Chick collaborate on a tract to warn about the coming of Galactus and how he can be propitiated by purchasing Marvel comics.

    You may now go back to your regularly scheduled thread in which we discussed how President Obama is not only a seekrit Muslim soshulist but is also a seekrit Muslim soshulist with the Evil Eye™!

    P.S. Do not taunt Happy Fun Evil Eye.

    Clearly Obama’s only option at this point is to open his next press conference with ZA WARUDO.

    I’m sure they are just upset that nowadays a black man has the gall to look white people directly in the face. It’s shocking.

    @Svensker: It is really a mediterranean thing. There are some analogues in African witchcraft beliefs, too, where jealous people are thought to cause (quite unintentionally) illness and injury to the people and things they covet.

    My wife has it. She claims she once caused a nice sports car, cruising through the Greek countryside, to stall out. Once she had gone through the ritual spitting and praying to remove the bad juju the car started right up and cruised away.
