Inquiring Minds Want To Know

Amy Chozick poses the question in The Wall Street Journal this brilliant and completely relevant question--Is Barack Obama too skinny to be President? Hard to Believe Some People thought the Wall Street Journal Would Go To Hell After Rupert Murdock Bought It.

He's not skinny enough. Kate Moss, where are you?

Omnipotent Poobah said...

No, he's not too skinny. The big ears might need some work though.

How does Olbermann say it? ARRRRRRGGGG, Fair and balanced, thats the ticket mate.

D.K. Raed said...

yeah, well McCain's wife is too skinny to be first lady ... so there!

Oh gee what a dumass question- I think we should have MsDumass WSJ "writer" puddin' wrestle Naomi Campbell and Trya Banks...and if she can still stand and talk after that she can ask her dumass question ? Cuz really she needs a good slap down by a Super Model...that is the only way to shut her up....

( see and you all thought I was so nice....but Nooooo I have a nasty side that involves Dumass Questions and puddin'.....jus sayin')

Well, if Obama is too skinny, then McCain is too Republican.

I can help Obama with his skinny problem. So far this weekend, I've made baked macaroni and cheese, corn pudding, chocolate chip cookies, pulled pork barbecue, lentil soup and a white layer cakey.

When can you get here, Utah? I think you'd love the corn pudding. It's made with Jiffy cornbread mix.

D.K. Raed said...

you taking the day off, UT? DCup's corn pudding sounds pretty tasty. Goes well with Enigma's mud-wrestling super models!

Not that I gave a shit what the Wall Street Journal thought before but now I'm doubly suspicious.

DK I'm frantically avoiding editing my novel. It takes work to be this lazy.

Dcup, I'm there.

And I love the mud wrestling idea. I want someone like Rachel Maddow to take down coltergiest. And how about Olbermann v Orally? And those to potential first ladies. And betting. I'd bet the farm on Michelle Obama.

Beach, did you see the horse race that the horse named Arrrrggg won?

D.K. Raed said...

I knew it had to be something worthy! and my money is on Rachel Maddow any day, although I suspect Cindy McC fights dirty. OK, get back to avoiding editing -- or better yet, just edit. You can do it!

You know, it really just says why he should be president. The White House chef can help him put some meat on his bones. We do have a reputation for being the fattest nation in the world to uphold here, now..

Nan said...

But doesn't the country need a skinny president to help keep the historical record balanced? IIRC, 100 years ago the U.S. elected Taft -- and he was, to put it mildly, rotund.

Mauigirl said...

I think the real question should be, is McCain too SHORT to be president? It's a well-known fact that tall people are more likely to win elections than short ones. They're more likely to get promotions too.

Oh fuck yeah the WSJ went to shit..there was never any doubt in my feeble mind that it would.

Was the piece tongue in cheek? I dunno as I refuse to read that fucking rag any longer. Another piece of Ruperts yellow journalism pie

Ha!

To tell you the truth... he's too black and white and skinny and, if rumor even nears truth, he is too anti-christ-like to be president.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still likely to vote for him come November, unless locusts begin to invade the sky and odd looking beasts begin to descend upon the earth and all of my churchly family and friends suddenly disappear in a blaze of heavenly glory...Then I'll be voting for no one, because I will then realize that I live in a dictatorship.

See, Georgey ain't gonna disappear, so he will declare Martial Law and stay on the throne for, what is it again, 6,000 years?

Hellfire and kidney stones! I always get confused when it comes to fairy tales...
