Egomanical Even for a Dictator
A Post-SOTU Analysis
by Brian Wilson
They are saying Obama will layout a “new vision” for this country. Sorry, Marx already had that vision. It is hardly new.
I interviewed PJTV’s Vodka Pundit (Stephen Green) and took his advice: start drinking before this freak show and have no plan to stop for a while.
First, everyone wants to know the night’s winning numbers: We have 59 “I”‘s. Note, one “I” was not counted because in was a quote from someone else. There were 13 “my”‘s and 11 “me”‘s. There were 3 “it’s Bush fault”‘s. I couldn’t keep count of the “it’s the fault of a do nothing congress”‘s because many of them were a bit oblique.
I did notice a pattern to Obama’s word usage. He is an “I” junkie. He uses “me” and “my” like Methadone to push the next “I” fix out a few more seconds. Then like a drowning man, when he gets his face to the surface, he gulps a mouthful of “I”‘s. Like a junkie, he sneaks an “I” into a sentence when he thinks no one will notice.
Some of the “we”‘s suggest Obama had a mouse in his pocket.
Excuse me; I’m trying to read my notes…. Obama so badly twisted words, his social agenda almost sounded like a good idea. He wants to take the money he was borrowing to pay for the war in Iraq and use half to pay down the debt and the other half to buy a pink elephant with purple spots? Wait. Is that “nursing home for my mother-in-law” or “an electric car with really big fins”? Whatever… it’s something that will be great for the economy.
I think I got this right but he said “ending the war in Iraq was a blow against our enemies”. WTF?!?!?? Maybe I should just stick with the elephant story.
