Obama 2012 - Cope And Strange

Obamatrons are already pumping out slogans such as "Together we thrive", but I don't think they're going to buy much. This time voters know who Obama is or, more importantly, who Obama isn't so instead of slogans, social media and such, Obama's handlers should follow the successful Democrat tradition. Buy votes. They seem to be on this path as they tout a billion dollar campaign budget for Obama's reelection.

Another tactic might be honesty. Yes, I am aware this is a little used device in campaigning, but the shock value might be enough to get him reelected by an electorate that has been obviously willing to try anything like, say, an unknown community organizer with questionable academic credentials, degrees and background.

The whole Hope and Change thing hasn't exactly worked out, but we, as nonpartisans, should all lend a hand to our president in his quest help all of us to maintain a mantle of low expectations as an odd reason to keep him around. For my part I say spend more, a lot more, than a billion dollars and find a catchier campaign slogan like "Cope and Strange."

Clyde Barrow To Dump Bonnie For New Crime Spree?

Yeah, I know. Rearranging Titanic's deck chairs. Custer changing his hairdo.

There has been some scuttlebutt that Obama may replace Biden on the ticket with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

I will admit that Jabberin' Joe Biden has some similarities to Buck Barrow.

Is Wisconsin's Kloppenburg Saying Minnesota's Dead Union Votes For Al Franken Went To Prosser?

Ann Althouse is having fun with the "recount" in Wisconsin and with JoAnne Kloppenburg's accusations of Republican wrongdoing by correcting a mistake and reporting the actual vote. According to Kloppenburg, this is just not acceptable in Wisconsin. And she has a long list to make it so.

Her list of things that "raise significant questions" about the process in
Waukesha felt long, but what is really on it?
a one-and-a-half day delay in notifying any responsible party about
a county vote total that [the clerk] knew was incorrect

the absence of any reasonable basis for her explanations

the prior knowledge by conservative bloggers

the complete absence of knowledge by the canvass
board until the press conference
It sounded like big list, but there are only 4 items. And 2 of the items are the absence of
anything. An absence of evidence might be probative of something that
matters, but you have to build a foundation for why it matters.

It's sad when one has their own device used against them, especially when it appears they are unable to see the irony. The question is not whether there are fraudulent votes that were cast in Wisconsin, there most probably were some, but who those votes were for.

I'd blame Bush, but that has gotten old even for those on the far left so I'm going with funny boy Franken as the guy to blame because if there weren't enough fraudulent votes for Kloppenburg it's because Franken and Friends (Inc.) weren't paying enough. Dead voters today just don't understand.
