Laugh of the Day: ‘President Obama: The Democrats’ Ronald Reagan’

Posted by on Sep 24, 2012 at 11:08 am

Fresh off a four-year investigation into Sarah Palin’s uterus, Andy Sullivan now has done has an in-depth look at his own colon. How’s the view up there, Andy?

As the fall has turned crisper, a second term for Barack Obama has gotten likelier. This may, of course, change: the debates, the Middle East, the unemployment numbers could still blow up the race. At this point in 2004, one recalls, George W. Bush was about to see a near eight-point lead shrivel to a one-state nail-biter by Election Day. But one thing that has so far, in my view, been underestimated is the potential impact of a solid Obama win, and perhaps a Democratic retention of the Senate and some progress in the House. This is now a perfectly plausible outcome. It would also be a transformational moment in modern American politics.

You can pretty much stop after the first sentence. As the fall turned crisper? What kind of hackery is that? It just turned to autumn Saturday, for what it’s worth, and we haven’t even seen any leaves change color.

But wait, it get’s funnier.

If Obama wins, to put it bluntly, he will become the Democrats’ Reagan. The narrative writes itself. He will emerge as an iconic figure who struggled through a recession and a terrorized world, reshaping the economy within it, passing universal health care, strafing the ranks of al -Qaeda, presiding over a civil-rights revolution, and then enjoying the fruits of the recovery.

A civil rights revolution? Reshaping the economy? Look, I know this guy’s a stoner, but really,  what the hell is he smoking?

The drivel goes on for four pages, if you can stand it. Accompanied by this absurd cover image:

    Which is ironic, since the left hates ronnie raygun. Not ‘hated’, but hates. But once again, the pretense of reaching out and in reality trying to co-opt ideas and success of the right continues. Ray gun is safely dead. If he had tried claiming him to be the next Clinton, Bubba, still very much alive, would have had something to say on the matter. How this idiot squares “being transformative” with JEF saying “You can’t change DC from inside” would be a treat.

    Yeah the “civil rights” thing is most likely gay marriage. Between Palin’s uterus and gay marriage Andy’s brain is about 90% full.

    Andy “The obstrician” Sullivan is just upset that the WH press corps[e] gets to fellate Zero more often than the writers at the print rags.

    Has someone explained to this moron that Romney will win by double digits and all the polls are wrong, oversampling Democrats by 5-10 points?

    Any notion that Obamee “won” this election must immediately be challenged by any and every means necessary, including us taking to the streets and shutting down the country. Unlike the Occupy punks, if we go Galt, the country really does shut down overnight.

    If you thought the millions at the Tea Party rallies were impressive, wait until you see the tens of millions demonstrating across the country if the powers that be try to sell us the snake oil that Obamee won.
