Buh-Bye Lipsticked Pit Bull - Caribou Barbie Gets A 150K Makeover? genre: Polispeak & Six Degrees of Speculation

Oh how I love irony! My frenzied friends on the right have done their damnedest to portray the Obama's as snooty elitists...despite the fact that it's the McCain's who own seven homes, thirteen automobiles, and a virtual department store of haute couture for Cindy to show off on the campaign trail.

None of this should come as a surprise since the GOP has spent the last three decades pretending to care about the interests of the common man. With the emergence of the maverick McCain-Palin reformers ticket, that persona has been put on steroids...championing the likes of Joe Six-Pack, Joe The Plumber, and Tito The Construction Worker.

Unfortunately, it's not that easy to play a caribou killin' moose burger eating mom, with a doggone down home dialect, when one is dressed up in 150K of name brand clothing purchased with campaign funds. It's especially problematic when just days earlier your rabid right ring rottweiler's are pushing a story about Michelle Obama partaking of a delectable dinner fit for an airing on an episode of Robin Leach's "champaign wishes and caviar dreams" Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.

So here's the problem...it turns out the Michelle Obama story was false...shooting a huge hole in the efforts to paint her as none other than an angry and arrogant African American manifestation of Mommy Dearest meets Leona Helmsley.

From The New York Post:

The source who told us last week about Michelle Obama getting lobster and caviar delivered to her room at the Waldorf-Astoria must have been under the influence of a mind-altering drug. She was not even staying at the Waldorf. We regret the mistake, and our former source is going to regret it, too. Bread and water would be too good for such disinformation.

Now cue the creation of Caribou-Barbie-wears-Christian-Lacroix (yea, that's close enough for Vic the Voter to draw a connection to hockey's Pierre Lacroix, right?) and you begin to see the sweet irony that comes with exposing those whose expertise is found in concocting ill-conceived illusions.

From Politico:

The Republican National Committee appears to have spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August.

According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September.

The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

Politico asked the McCain campaign for comment, explicitly noting the $150,000 in expenses for department store shopping and makeup consultation that were incurred immediately after Palin's announcement. Pre-September reports do not include similar costs.

Spokeswoman Maria Comella declined to answer specific questions about the expenditures, including whether it was necessary to spend that much and whether it amounted to one early investment in Palin or if shopping for the vice presidential nominee was ongoing.

Think about it...when Sarah Palin asked us to imagine the difference between a hockey mom and a Pit Bull, we foolishly believed it was limited to lipstick. Well, we now know it includes skirts and suits, handbags and high heels, dresses and designer wear, and anything else one can buy on a paltry allowance of 150K.

Not to worry though, John McCain and Sarah Palin plan to share the pie with the two Joe's and Tito and Vic...that's what Republicans do when they cut taxes for all of Robin Leach's BFF's. A word of caution to the wise though...you better stay alert...I wouldn't want you to miss out on a few of the crumbs when they fall off the table.

Michelle Obama is photo shopped to the max in all the left wing magazines, newspapers. In real life she could use an extreme make-over. Plus her pouty mouth, wicked anti- American attitude will be sermonizing the USA for the next 4 years. Not all Americans are in love with her. In fact within the first 6 months of Barack's seizure of America, it's predicted popularity will vanish altogether when the real Barack and Michelle take over.

Linda,

Where to begin!? Perhaps your venomous attitude could use an extreme makeover?

The undertones of your screed suggest far more than an opposition to the policies of Barack Obama. From what I can discern, it appears you're more willing to embrace the cardboard caricature of Sarah Palin, the hypocrisy of her actions, and the McCain campaign's disjointed rhetoric than to give sufficient thought to the benefits of an Obama presidency.

There are a limited number of underlying beliefs that can lead one to engage is such an apparent disconnect...and none of the possibilities are remotely flattering. It's disconcerting that you're opposed to the kind of "change" that is coming. Then again, there's always been unwarranted resistance to those events that were apt to transform this nation.

Regards,

Daniel

Comment from Linda:

So sorry but I will never support Barack Obama even if he is seizes the office of president. Yes, many citizens are angry and yes there is much hate directed toward Barack Obama. Call my attitude venomous, hateful or whatever you want to call it, but I will not deny my emotions. Psychologically it truly takes ONE to know ONE, or you would have absolutely no concept of what I wrote. To deny one's emotions is to suppress and cause further damage . Best strategy is to begin by becoming familiar with your emotions. I am intelligent enough to know a blatant lie when a blatant lie is expressed by the Obamas. Even their body language speaks volumes. I find it extremely difficult to smile and let go of a blatant series of lies but rather will engage my emotions and will understand that I have made the decision to do so.

The issue of Pro life/Pro Choice puts a lot of blood on not only Obama's hands but also Michelle's hands. Crushing a late term baby's brain , or filling bodies with a saline solution is nothing more than Auschwitz tactics for infants. And I don't support the killing of animals either, and yes I do realize that Sarah Palin supports the killing of animals, and you eat dead animals. But in this case human lives are paramount. One of those dead babies may have been the one who would have discovered the cure for Barack Hussein Obama's black lungs. Yes, I do have emotions concerning Obama's casual killing of the unborn.

Nor do I want to share a piece of my pie. I've watched too many custodians at the Indiana School for the Deaf, come to work ,sit all day in a closet, watching Oprah, sleeping , and then walking out at 3:pm while the restrooms, hallways, desks, are crawling with bacterial filth. Repeat this scenario in the nation's nursing homes and hospitals.Deaf and hearing teachers regularly fill the dumpster with new materials, supplies , whatever the Democrat administrations have handed out. When asked why they are doing this, the answer is :there are plenty of materials available ,why bother to store them?? A hand-out really doesn't work. Plus why stay in this country??? Why not move if you are a large corporation or if you are wealthy?? Yes , I do have strong emotions connected with sharing the pie. And other Americans and corporations also have strong emotions concerning the "share the pie theory".

Those who hold the pie like the Obamas make money and they will obviously never be asked to share their piece. Michelle Obama made 4.5 million dollars from the campaign this year by reiterating Rev. Wright's sermons in order to heal all of our broken souls. And why should I be held accountable for slavery when I didn't even exist during that era?? Perhaps Michelle and Barack Obama reincarnated as blacks because they were slave owners during that time.She can take that New Age idea and mesh it with God Damn America and then place it where she can find it. But in all fairness to you quantum physicists say that time doesn't really exist because it is born of the EGO. The point is I don't intend to go on the guilt trip they seem to enjoy setting up for all the white Americans. No one is really a victim. The victim and the victimizer are really one . Michelle really needs to learn that basic idea and throw her race card away. In a few months Americans are going to be sick of hearing about her race card excuse.

And I would truly appreciate it if the press, media would not portray Photo shopped Michelle as Jackie O.Let us see the real Michelle right down to the bare skin as evidenced on some of the you tube videos. I guess it's an attempt on the part of the media to spread a gross illusion across the USA. Michelle Obama ,as far as looks are concerned, is more akin to Eleanor Roosevelt. All in all we have continual deceit on the part of the radical media. What right wing conservatives need to do is boycott all the newspapers, tv. programs, media in any form, including internet service providers, who lean left. I have begun to do that as well as others. Let the welfare recipients support your establishments.

How long do we have until a citizen cannot express concerns, hates, disagreements ?? I can't really answer this question, but realize time is short with an Obama administration and congress on the horizon.

You are by no means the saint you consider yourself to be. You have an ego just like I have or you would not have bothered with a reply. Invite your emotions to tea and start becoming familiar with them. You just might gain some real enlightenment instead of being totally ignorant of your dominating EGO.

Linda,

Oh my!! Thanks for further demonstrating the utter hatred that oozes from your pitiful pores.

Let's get one thing straight...this election will have a winner and a loser based upon votes cast...no one is going to "seize" power.

As to one's emotions, there is a difference between being aware of them and being controlled by them. You, my friend, need some serious help with the latter.

And you can spare me the "it takes one to know one" nonsense. Rest assured, I don't have to be an ignorant bigot to recognize one. Don't drag me into your twisted and tortured rationale. You're on your own with regards to your outrageous and impulsive outbursts. Before you proceed to project your petulance upon me, perhaps you should take a look in the mirror.

As to the remainder of your babble, perhaps a therapist can sort it out for you. I suspect your bitterness is simply the means by which you avoid the consequences of the choices and actions you've taken in life. Rather than take responsibility, you need a bogeyman to hate; otherwise you might have to look at the dark soul that resides in the shell of a human you've become.

Lastly, please do boycott Thought Theater...you're not welcome here. After all, this is my pie and I don't want it poisoned with your rancid rhetoric.

Regards,

Daniel

Comment from Linda:

Barack Obama bought the presidency and contributed to voter fraud. He has basically received the position dishonestly and we have seen that same problem in the primaries. The reality is 45% or more of the population will not accept Barack Obama for various reasons. The number will increase when people find out what he said during the election will not be the same as what he does after the election. A transformational figure isn't really a qualification that will take a person too far.

Sorry but any reputable psychologist will tell you that it does take ONE to know ONE.This is not nonsense and you are uninformed when it comes to basic psychological principles. You could not possibly even understand my emotions if you, yourself, had not experienced the same. A concept is a concept and not understood until experienced. And the difference between the two of us is I'm willing to admit my hatred but you are not willing to admit your hatred as evidenced by your ramblings that demonize people and will continue demonizing them for the rest of your life . Enroll in a psychology course and learn about it. Whenever you point the finger at someone else, then turn your finger around and point it at yourself. That is the best way to understand this concept. Whatever you are pointing toward, you , yourself , have lived that very same negative situation that you so hate. You many have lived it to a lesser or greater extent but you have shared in the same experience. The title, Buh-Bye Lipsticked Pit Bull -Caribou Barbie, is YOU. It's a mirror of yourself. Look into the mirror. Dealing with emotions is an ongoing, evolving process and nothing to be ashamed of but rather a situation one can learn from. You are not the saint you attempt to portray---Wake up!.

And I thought that I made it clear that I am aware of when my EGO is in Control.I make the decision to let my EGO control but I also understand when this is happening. I am not going to suppress my emotions but rather let them have their time and then let it go. The point is that you are not aware of when your EGO is in control because you feel that you are always in control. You are under a great spell of illusion.

No, I'm not going to support Mr . Government , Barack Obama. Channeling Hand-outs and negating great endeavors(CHANGE) does not help an individual recognize the power within themselves. The individual's power is transferred to a Messiah , Savior, whatever, whoever professes to support the individual. The individual gives his /her power away to The One.

You are once again attempting to belittle me and everyone else you demonize in your writings. This is how you make a living. Putting someone on a guilt trip is going to boomerang and is a senseless venture. You cannot in any way deal with an opposing opinion without making yourself angry. Your position on any subject will never change. There are many Americans who are as angry as I am. I am not an isolated incidence. If you think I am, you are under another spell of great illusion.

No, I'm not going to pitch the hate ball back and forth by reading anymore of your articles. We can all accuse one another of this side does this and the other side does the same. That sort of thing is the game that 3-5 year olds play and the radical left media plays that game well. We can find trespasses on both sides. We are not talking about saints , we are talking about humans with an EGO. It's best that you read only those who agree with you because ;otherwise, you might learn something that would shake your very fine,protected foundation of beliefs.

When Barack Obama seizes control, I don't intend to listen to or read any source of the media that supports Barack Obama. What happens will happen ,and I don't intend to worry about it. At this point I will let go and move on because there will be no way to stop whatever Barack Obama decides to do. I will soon cancel my AOL account because I'm not going to pay a radical left group. Cancellations of all left group magazines, newspapers will happen. I do not intend to read or listen to any radical left group including the entertainment industry which is thick with radical left. I say let the welfare recipients support them. I intend to move on and anticipate the 4th year, if there is one.

But you will continue to demonize anyone that makes any statement contrary to what you feel this person should feel . You will write about it and send the message out to millions. Your objective in this life is to insist that people think your way;otherwise, you would not be writing degrading articles and attempting to reach millions.

I do see a silver lining in all of this. I will no longer give to charities. If anyone asks me for a donation, I'll have a postcard for them with Barack Obama and the White House address. I will simply tell them to write Mr. Government and he will take care of the problem with government money.

Yes, I can let all of this goes once Mr. Government takes control. And I say good Buh-Bye to your lipsticked Pit Bull-Caribou Barbie and you can welcome in your dream come true, beautiful, saintly, Michelle Obama (Jackie O). Beauty is truly in the eyes of the beholder. Her beautiful demure and easy on the eyes physical appearance should just make your day ,everyday. And that's the way you can move on.

Linda,

Here's the problem. I welcome dialogue and discourse...but when I recognize someone promoting bigotry in the form of racism, homophobia, or the likes...I'm not going to give them a platform to spout their hatred. Unfortunately, those who are prone to such behavior cannot distinguish reasoned debate from blatant bias.

You don't like my posting about Sarah Palin because you can only react to it with you racist thoughts towards her opponent. My criticism of Sarah Palin is predicated upon the actions of the McCain campaign. It wasn't me who set out to portray her as a person with "small town Joe six-pack American values"...the McCain campaign sought to create that persona. The fact that her 150K shopping spree cuts the legs out from under that false caricature isn't my fault or the Obama's fault.

The RNC and the McCain campaign set their own trap and dug their own hole. The fact that I chose to call them on it is a valid argument aimed at exposing their attempt to dupe voters into thinking they're for the likes of Joe SIx Pack when they're actually pulling for themselves and their wealthy associates.

Quite frankly, you're a prototype for the voters they think they can fool with their rhetoric...they play to your fears and your hatreds with catch phrases and contrivances and you eat them up...even though their actions in office won't benefit you in the least. Even worse, they can do it while owning seven houses, thirteen cars, and hobnobbing with the very elitists they paint as your enemy. How do you suppose that can happen, eh?

You act like Obama is going to take your pie yet you can't even see that the GOP just ate the whole damn thing in the last eight years. But as long as they say the right code words...blaming the socialist or the communist or the homo or the community organizer or the black man, you'll be their loyal puppy dog.

Frankly, you've gotten what you've deserved from them and you're not even thoughtful enough to set aside your hatreds and bitterness to make an informed decision that would better serve your interests. Such is the overarching power of bigotry...everything is filtered through that narrow prism.

By the way, my degree happens to be in psychology so I'm not inclined to partake of your "therapy" lessons. Look, you're entitled to whatever beliefs you want...but you're not entitled to spout them here without challenge.

You see, you view anything that doesn't comport with your bigotry to be unfair, invalid, or evil...and then you attach that to the proverbial "they" in order to make yourself feel better. You want to believe that I'm like you because that prevents you from examining your bigotry. You're not interested in knowledge or facts because they would undermine your prejudice. That's why you embrace the GOP's rhetoric and do so by making the "other" your mortal enemy without a second thought.

Regardless, in the end, I know that I am unlikely to break through to you and those like you. You've spent years avoiding any real examination of your views and you'll waste no time in rejecting those who might challenge them. Knowing as much, bad behavior shouldn't be rewarded and it's far better for me to send you on your way. Any less could give you the impression that I condone or respect your views in some tacit manner. Truth be told, I'm not willing to do that and I want that to be abundantly clear.

Regards,

Daniel
