Senator Obama - Enviro Terrorist?

In yesterday’s BOTW, Mr. Taranto links to Connecticut radio host James Vicevich’s collection of women-fainting-at-Obama-rallies anecdotes. Here’s an example:

“And when a woman appeared to faint in the standing-only VIP section in front of the podium, Obama paused his speech for over a minute as he directed the crowd to make way for an EMT team and tossed a bottle of water from the stage”

He lists five such instances. What I noticed was the Senator's frequent tossing of a water bottle as an instinctive expression of concern...which would seem a commendable trait but wait; that would mean he always had a bottle of water with him. And, as we are learning:

“In the last few months, bottled water — generally considered a benign, even beneficial, product — has been increasingly portrayed as an environmental villain by city leaders, activist groups and the media. The argument centers not on water, but oil. It takes 1.5 million barrels a year just to make the plastic water bottles Americans use, according to the Earth Policy Institute in Washington, plus countless barrels to transport it from as far as Fiji and refrigerate it.” Water, Water Everywhere, but Guilt by the Bottleful - New York Times

I’m sorry – I can’t even begin to consider voting for a guy that is that disdainful of our environment.

Side Note I: Kudos again to Soccer Dad for his ongoing contributions to Mr. Taranto’s BOTW – a daily must-read for many of us. SD was again cited yesterday as a contributor.

Side Note II: And I just noticed that Soccer Dad has linked to the same BOTW piece. Soccer Dad: Hope is like bottled water. As usual, way ahead of me.

This is the song that Obama reminds me of.

Barack Obama, Superstar.

Who are you, what kind of change are you are talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar,

Who are you, what kind of change are you are talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar

Who are you, what kind of change are you talking about?

Adoph Hitler could really rally those masses, and Olde Joe Stalin could make them walk barefoot through broken glasses, And Ho Chin Minn, he could bring the crowd in, and that Po Pot he know how his words could make them hot...

Now do you believe?

Now Marshall Applewhite made them think that they were going to go to Heaven on a comet, and David Koresh he sent his faithful on a path to Armageddon. And of course we all know about olde Jim Jones. His people did what he told em and that Kool-aid got overflowin...

Now do you believe? (the mesmerized crowd shouts back Yes we Believe) Now do you believe?(louder) Yes, we believe! Hallelujah now get that sister some water (the front row of women then faints).


Barack Obama, Superstar,

Who are you, what kind of change are you are talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar

Who are you, what kind of change are you talking about?

Now do you see yourself as as Che's Second comin... Or maybe you set yourself up on a path even higher. Perhaps you do see yourself as the new Messiah, start a new religion with you as its idol.

Do you believe?

Cults of personalities well they very rarely end well and with yours it could set the earth a trembling... For when you come unglued as all cult leaders in the end do, you could push that nuclear button and set the earth afire..

Barack Obama, Superstar,

Who are you, what kind of change are you are talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar!

Who are you, what kind of change are you talking about?

Barack Obama, Superstar!

Turing America into one big Manson Family

You gave me fortune

You gave me fame

You me power in your god’s name

I’m every person you need to be

I’m the cult of personality

Look into my eyes, what do you see?

Cult of personality

I know your anger, I know your dreams

I’ve been everything you want to be

I’m the cult of personality
 
Actually when I see what goes on at Obama rallies this is what goes through my mind.

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
Ah, what is puzzling you
Is the nature of my game, oh yeah
 
thank you Anonymous songmeister
