Another case of Chris Matthews disease discovered

Or, as I believe the medical experts call it, Obama-sourced jactitation. Via Small Dead Animals comes this priceless bit of asshattery from one Christina Patterson, writing (I nearly typed “writhing”) in The Independent:
Sometimes, you need to go away to keep your love alive. Perhaps it's the change of air. Perhaps it's the change of view. Perhaps it's just the chance to stop and pause. Who knows what it is that melts away the doubts, and the disappointment? But when I gazed at my beloved, at Lake Garda last weekend, I realised that, in spite of everything, my love still burned bright.
For Barack Obama, folks; her love still burns bright - let me count the ways…wherefore art thou, Barry?... Lay your sleeping head, my love, Human on my faithless arm… – yes, her love still burns bright for the First Jughead.

It may be true that there’s no accounting for taste; however, I know an overdraft in the common sense balance when I see one, and Ms. Patterson is clearly insolvent. Or perhaps the whole thing can be chalked up to a particularly bad case of delerium tremens, or a spot of malaria. Far better, I should think, to claim later on that one has been raving, than to admit to the ownership of these risible sentiments. Just a suggestion, ma’am!

Huh. I didn't know they were selling blow-up dolls of Barky.

Stop AND pause? What?

If anyone this stupid were in love with me, I'd slit my wrists. It's embarrassing.

I can tell her what DOESN'T 'melt away the doubts' - higher unemployment, boarded up businesses, and ANOTHER shooting war.

My new client would be an ObamaMama if he were a she. Needless to say, we don't discuss politics while I vacuum the dog hair from under the sofa.

FFS This is the sort of stuff I would, and have, written to a girlfriend I was in love with. In fact, I did just so recently, with no success.

Ah, the disappointments of love.

PS Just heard snippets from The One's explication of his dithering on Libya. Not impressed; many words hide little resolve.

Retread: The original is fully posable, at least. Although as you can see from Paco's earlier thread (or the speech), it's hard to get a convincing stance...

Good grief. I couldn't read all that. The rising stomach acid wouldn't allow it. How old is this Christina person... fourteen?
