Obama's Inspiration (Hope In Spires)

By Reza B, published on Feb 4, 2008

...certainly applies, the next leader of this nation must be more than just great; they must be inspirational, in that they must breathe new life into our democracy.

In scanning the field of remaining candidates, I am happy to see that people are finally beginning to take notice of Barack Obama. The man’s charisma is undeniable, but even more importantly his ability to bring inspiration and hope to the desolate doorstep of a cynic is nothing short of a miracle. For the first time in my life I believe that I may be witnessing the ascendance of a truly great hero—one that can... (more)

Super Bowl XLII: By A Dude Who Does Not Watch Football.

By Brain, published on Feb 4, 2008

...A fact that known cheater and Patriots coach Bill Belichick pointed out like a sad sore loser. But no one cared. The game was over. The underdogs had won.

With my newfound faith in the underdogs present, I am going to vote in tomorrow’s primary elections. According to the latest polls (whatever they’re good for) Obama and Clinton are neck-in-neck. I personally don’t care for either of them, so I will most likely write in Mike Gravel, and he probably won’t win, but if there’s anything I learned for the Giants, is that there's always a chance.

Will We Be Singing Ebony & Hillary?

By Ed Attanasio, published on Feb 1, 2008

Last night when Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama supposedly debated, I couldn’t believe my eyes. You call that a debate? I haven’t seen that much love in one room since John Lennon and Yoko Ono did their famous sleep-in peace protest in 1969. I thought that at any moment they were going to start making out. I’m surprised someone didn’t yell, “Get a room!”

It’s pretty obvious what is happening. The Democrats believe that Obama and Hillary on the same ticket will lead to certain victory. A black man has his supporters and a woman has hers, even if that woman is Hillary Clinton. Put them... (more)

Talk About Your Come From Behind...

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 28, 2008

...HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! HYPOCRITE! And yet this bitch wants me to drive around in a Toyota Prius? I don’t F-ing think so!). Now back to our regularly scheduled article.

Several pollsters, especially McClatchy/MSNBC had all marked Obama for political death in South Carolina saying that he could expect no more than about 10% of the white population in that state for vote for him. Again, it seems that racism isn’t the big factor in this race as some people would want us to believe, right Hillary? Again we here at... (more)

Will White People Try To Kill Obama Too?

By davidjacobs, published on Jan 28, 2008

“It is not a question of ‘will’ but ‘when’, on an assassination attempt of 2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama by white people, says Under- privileged Media publisher Elbert Devrny Jr. . “They slew Martin Luther King and Jesus Christ. How much less is Obama than them?”

Obama routed Hillary Rodham Clinton in the racially charged South Carolina primary Saturday night, regaining campaign momentum in the prelude to a Feb. 5 coast-to-coast competition for more than 1,600 Democratic National Convention delegates.

“The choice in this election is not about regions or religions or... (more)

Kerry Calls Out Bill Clinton For Dishonest Attacks

By Chris Jones, published on Jan 25, 2008

From CNN:

John Kerry, the Democratic Party's 2004 nominee for president, took aim at Bill Clinton Friday, telling the National Journal the former president does "not have a license to abuse the truth."

The Massachusetts senator, who endorsed Barack Obama's White House bid earlier this month, said Clinton's criticisms of the Illinois senator have been "over the top," and suggested the former president is getting "frantic."

Targeting Clinton's recent spate of attacks on Obama, Kerry said, "I think you had an abuse of the truth, is what happened. …I mean, being an ex-president... (more)

Edwards Slams Obama/Clinton

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 24, 2008

...his position as the most mature candidate of the Democrats last night on David Letterman’s Late Show when he said, “I represent the grown-up wing of the Democratic Party.”

That ain’t no lie. With Clinton throwing fits and crying all over the place and Obama constantly looking for something to play “Gotcha” on Hillary, it’s a wonder Democrats aren’t ashamed to show their faces in public. If you held a gun to my head and told me I could only vote for a Democrat for president, I’d have to say, “pull the damn... (more)

Thompson Withdraws From Race

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 23, 2008

...badly.

Thompson’s withdrawal, the first for either party, leaves the Republican race open to God knows what in terms of a candidate. Even worse, Thompson leaves the Republican Party without a decent conservative candidate to put up against what? Hillary Clinton? Barack Obama? At this point there isn’t a decent person among the whole lot of them who deserves to be president. The best candidate left the race today after barely breaking the third place rankings among those states which have already held contests. Traditional Reagan Conservative Republicans... (more)

What Do The Parties Reveal?

By Ve, published on Jan 21, 2008

Hi Ve,

I was wondering what your thoughts were on the presidential primaries? It looks pretty interesting on the democratic side with Obama and Clinton both slugging it out, but not on the predominant issues the republicans are kind of boring so far Rudy better make his move in Florida or that's it for him. I'm still hoping Newt. Bloomberg gets in the race.

Have a great day ttyl

Robert,

Wow, you want my thoughts on the primaries well let's see… With Clinton and Obama struggling it out, as you so generously put it, make the Dems look a bit childish, Edwards looks... (more)

Support Obama, Or Buy A Bong

By Digidave, published on Jan 18, 2008

...this image off of Google Street View (tons of fun to play with), because sadly it shut down.

I didn't know in advance that it would shut-down. Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm not a stoner. I just couldn't help but notice this week that it had turned into something very very different.

Check out Broowaha's San Francisco Flickr set. I uploaded two pictures yesterday, ObamaSF1 and ObamaSF2.

While walking back from parking my car I had to stop and laugh. Perhaps it's fate (or cliche) that Obama's headquarters used to be the center for growing your own marijuana in SF.
