Don't Pee On My Leg and Tell Me It's Raining

Obama's speech is nothing but an electability pitch. Well, that and tax increases. Always a great way to get elected. Vote for me, I'll raise your taxes!

Obama always talks about paying teachers more. Can someone explain to me how the POTUS controls teacher salaries? Obviously, it's a rhetorical question, but it's important; because he'll say something that will make you shake your head, then go of onto a rant about convincing us cynical folks who think he's full of shit, that he is in fact the messiah. The modern day Jesus Christ of American politics. First of all Obama, don't feel bad. I think all politicians are full of shit. You're no different. Second, I'm cynical because you make shit up. Not only do you make shit up, but you have the audacity to ask me to believe it in the very next line of the speech. Unreal.

This might not translate to any readers....But Obama reminds me of a local TV ad in Baltimore for a personal injury attorney--Barry Glazer. He has a line, directed at insurance companies, where he says "Don't pee on my leg and tell me it’s raining". To me that is Obama -- Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining.

McCain wins CA. So does Hillary

No matter what happens in the coming months, I'm more convinced tonight than I was before that the GOP is fucked next year.
