Wheels coming off?


Stories based on the assertions of unnamed sources should always be taken with a grain of salt, but Sean Hannity’s claim that Obama is “losing it” seems consistent with the profile.

Arrogant and aloof narcissist ascends to the pinnacle of power through a set of uniquely fortuitous circumstances, deluded by both his vanity and the marketing hokum of his boosters into believing that his meteoric career path is almost exclusively a function of his own personal awesomeness. The inevitable failure of any mortal, let alone this one, to live up to the unprecedented hype that fueled the 2008 presidential campaign, in conjunction with the predictably disastrous consequences of his actual policy initiatives, turns the electorate into a hard and unforgiving windshield against which the mythic public persona disintegrates like an unfortunate specimen of Ephemeroptera. The real person - Homo obaminensis, the garden variety, unexceptional, rather hum-drum human being whom we have elected president - having mentally assimilated the identity of the fantastical demigod, cannot accept the purely fictional nature of the latter, yet cannot logically deny the reality of the former, which state of affairs leads to cognitive dissonance, prompting spectacular displays of denial and projection.

M’yes…I shall wait for additional evidence, but I believe Hannity may be on to something.

I believe that this subject has been discussed before here at Paco Enterprises.

I trust that you listened to my suggestion, and cornered the market in popcorn, butter, and salt. The investment will have more than an ample return.

And Milk Duds, don't forget the Milk Duds!

Hillbuzz reckon he's got Parkinson's - and it will be used as an excuse to ease him out without controversy. That assumes he's smart enough to take the option...

What the heck is a Milk Dud? /Antipodean

Milk Dud? A delicious chocolate candy.

Sometimes sold in little boxes in cinema lobbies, usually ten years after manufacture.

Which is when they're the BEST, Rebecca! And Junior Mints, don't forget the Junior Mints! At the Villa Theater in Malta, Montana, I got a Coke and a box of Junior Mints or Milk Duds every Saturday, for a quarter.

Parkinson's, eh? Don't know enough about it to know if it's disabling...but wouldn't The Current Occupant then have his job protected by the ADA?

I'd take the Parkinson's rumor with a large grain of salt, pc55kc. I understand that developing it before age 60 is not unheard, but still rare.

It's more likely a rumor floated around as a possible excuse should Obama decide to, ummmmm, abdicate.

Jeffs,

I would take the rumour like you, with a grain of salt. If they are going to use this as a ruse it is truly despicable.

Michael J Fox is an example of what early onset Parkinson's will do to a person.

Rebecca: vintage Milk Duds! Mmmmmm....

A search on urban dictionary shows milk duds as:

1. a common movie snack, consisting of milk, chocolate, and caramel.

2. slang term for a pair of firm breasts

We have something like the first called Fantales which are notorious for removing fillings from teeth.

We also have plenty of the second down here as well. Not noted for removing fillings but for making jaws drop.
