Democrats sighted in Bibleburg; film at 11

That coffee-colored fella from Washington DeeCee, Barack Hussein Obama, the fabled Kenyan Muslim socialist Antichrist who’s gonna snatch up all our guns and give ’em to the United Nations, the North American Man/Boy Love Association and The New York Times, will be addressing the Democratic hordes of Bibleburg tomorrow, and Your Humble Narrator and Herself will be among those in attendance.

Tickets were free, but had to be picked up in advance, and since much of bright-red Bibleburg still calls Abraham Lincoln a RINO for freeing the slaves I figured this would be about as tough a hustle as scoring duckets for a N.W.A. reunion concert in Branson, Missouri.

There were two pickup spots. The first was Colorado College, the site of tomorrow’s presidential address and an easy walk or bike ride from Chez Dog. The other was the Obama for America office up north in Briargate, a 20-minute drive at the best of times — and the announced pickup time of 5 p.m. is never the best of times. The rule of thumb in these parts is never head north on Interstate 25 after about 3 p.m. unless you really, really, really like your car, especially its first gear.

Herself was working in Denver and motored straight to the Briargate location for her ticket, and what with the honkified north end of town being Romney country she was in and out in a flash. I chose the Colorado College location, an easy five-minute trip by bike, and stood in line for about an hour and a half with a couple thousand of my deeply blue brethren and sistren. Another real-world proof of the Larry’s Wife Theorem®.

This afternoon I took the Vespa for a spin past CC en route to the Colorado Farm and Art Market for a passel of Doug Wiley’s Larga Vista Ranch pasture-raised pork and the security types have the place fenced off in a fashion that would make an Arizona Minuteman smile, until he remembered why.

Tomorrow we’ll ride our bikes down to CC to catch the prez in person. I don’t believe I’ve seen an occupant of the Oval Orifice in corpus since LBJ visited Randolph AFB when I was a sprout. Should be interesting. I’ll have a couple cameras and the iPhone; maybe I can post a little sumpin’-sumpin’ from the scene.

    Missed you!
    For many reasons, but here are a few:
    the power of your scorn; tidbits about grub and grog; pretty pics of bikes; pots of gold; and updates on Miss Mia and The Turk.

      Why, thank you, Miz Libby. Every now and then I get sick of the sound of my own voice, and I figure that other folks must feel the same.

      At the moment Miss Mia and the Turk’ are enjoying a stimulus package — they’re roaming the back yard (under strict supervision) and nibbling a little grass in order to construct the perfect hairball. Who says Americans don’t make anything anymore?

    Hey, the Kenyan-In-Chief was here in Dysfunction Junction this afternoon giving a speech to both local Democrats. He and his plane flew out of here just a half hour ago, no doubt ready to dodge the anti-aircraft fire…I mean, those local patriots exercising their 2nd Amendment rights.

    Seriously, though, I’m actually surprised nothing happened security-wise. He was here during his last campaign and survived then too, but back then he was just “Candidate Obama”. This is, after all, Fox News/Glen Beck/Rush Country, where there’s a statue of a Klansman in downtown (seriously), and where minorities are not to be seen nor heard.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      He was in Pee-eb-blow, too, John. Much friendlier country than your neighborhood or mine, despite the decline of solid union gigs. As I’ve mentioned before, we had actual living, breathing Klansmen here when I was a young reporter at the Gazette, most of them Fort Carson grunts, so the recruitment of substandard soldiers to serve in the Fourth Reich is not a new development.

      • High Plains Drifters Says:

        Remember when Dept Homeland Security put out that Threat 101 briefing that included disgruntled soldiers as one of the thousands of potential problems out there, and folks on the right freaked out that Obama was insulting the military? That everyone who ever wears the uniform is beyond reproach? And that was right after the DC sniper and Timothy McVeigh. (Americans having short memories, I can forgive folks for forgetting Lee Harvey was a Marine.) That might have been the nail in my personal perspective coffin with respect to ever trying to discuss anything with anyone who watches Fox or reads News Max. Having opinions is fine, but denying observable, measurable data is another.

    After reading Larry’s latest post on the previous blog entry, I am really, really, getting worried about gunfire in all the wrong places. Might as well move to Syria, the way this country is going.

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      K, did you see the pix of those fine young gentlemen? Their parents must be so proud. Drunk and driving around Sioux City with a .45 and no compunctions about using it. Here’s hoping for a hanging judge.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Fuckin A, man…..

      • Larry T. Says:

        I thought the shooter looked a bit like Riccardo Ricco! Maybe the disgruntled ex-pro cyclist/doper has really lost it? Glad you’re back OG, your snark has been missed.

      • khal spencer Says:

        $250k bail each should keep them in the cooler for a while. Not to mention, the moron is probably out another grand for the 1911 ACP. Those things are not cheap, but he won’t be needing one where he is going, i.e., the Greybar Hotel and attached Ben Dover’s Restaurant.

    Well you get the prez and we get Sir Willard over here. I saw the headline on our local electric fish wrapper, but have yet to look further. How nice of him to look The Help’s way for a few seconds!

    • High Plains Drifters Says:

      Dude tried to act all Everyman by distancing himself from dressage. Said, “That’s Ann’s sport … I don’t even know what day they’re doing it.”

      But instead of looking like a non-elitist, he came across like an ass-hole husband. Seriously? You’re wife is in the freaking Olympics, but you aren’t sure when?

      It doesn’t bother me that he’s dumb. What bothers me is, he thinks we are, too.
