Yawn, motherfucking Obama. I'd darken the blog in SOMA protest but fuck if I'm pasting html code, I'm a codedope, I'd fuck up the blog. Consider this my protest.


  1. Sounds like *someone* wants Mitt Romney as pretzeldent.

    I knew my black background would come in handy; everyday is protest something day!

  2. I'm against these SOPA-PIPA pimps, too. I might have to put up a post anyways, because it's already done.

    Anticipation is making me wait!!!

  3. I don’t know why anyone would take Andrew Sullivan seriously. His analysis is equal to his indoctrination. I suppose for people like Sullivan writing for Newsweek is the ultimate and Sullivan’s lips must be black and blue from kissing so much ass to get to where he is. From where I sit Obama is worse than Bush.

  4. That is one angry looking cat. Maybe it's the ears...

  5. That's Fleabus! caught on the prey.
