The Shameless Survivor

Obama - The Shameless Survivor
Obama – The Shameless Survivor

I was just going to allow Obama to shuffle off into the sunset, as most ex-POTUS’s are both allowed to- and encouraged to fade into obscurity. I can’t quite do that yet though. One last thing needs to be brought up about Obama and his “legacy.” That is the fact the he could almost be considered the sole survivor of the Democrat party and he seem utterly unconcerned by that fact or the fact that he is a large part of why the Democrats are effectively an endangered species in elected office today.

Politically speaking, the legacy of Obama is that, largely as a reaction to Obama and the Dems’ slavish devotion to him, the Democrat party has lost between 1,100 and 1,200 seats in local, county, state, and federal governments. It can at this point be argued that they’re done, over, kaput.

But hey! Obama got elected and got reelected. He wasn’t a One-Term failure and that’s all that matters, right?

Ain’t Jemima

Whole Cloth BullAin’t Jemima – New, Improved, Transracial

Somehow I’m doubting that this is one of Amandla Stenberg’s favorite breakfasts. Then again, I could be wrong. Stenberg may like “cultural appropriation” when the person doing it is working to secure special privileges and protections for the Blacks.

Still, I don’t Ain’t Jemima would sell well in the Hood. Given their bucks’ proclivities, it do better if they kept Dolezol’s blonde hair, blue eyes, and pale white skin. Then they’d be more than happy to serve it up with sausage and scramble some eggs. 😉

It Sure Wasn’t Love

Vomiting Hearts
Spit or Swallow … Or Puke – It Sure Wasn’t Love

It’s “The Morning After.” In this case it’s the morning after Valentine’s Day, which means many, many people will be experiencing certain forms of emotional hangover, instead of- or in addition to their physical ones.

Of course, on a morning when society pedantically instructs us that on this one “special” day staggering though one’s “Walk of Shame” is less shameful and less degrading than not being in a position to do so, this must be fully expected.

I’m sure many women – and not a few men – are busy vomiting the bad taste left from this celebration of “romance” out of their mouths. 😉
