Obama to his media friends and small contributors: thanks suckers
Those people who contributed thousands of dollars to Barack Obama's campaign were notified last week that they should prepare to head for Chicago on the evening of the 4th November to attend the celebratory bash that will be held in the city's Grant Park. The millions who shelled out a few dollars each and who the campaign has praised as the heroes and heroines without whom Obama could not have run can presumably go and fuck themselves.

At the same time, the media has been notified that they will have to shell out an arm and a leg for access to the site, especially to those areas that are heated, come with access to the outside world and where there is a chance of speaking to the campaign's senior figures. There is a free press area, but according to the memorandum that has been sent out to the media, it will be "outdoors, unassigned and may have obstructed views. General Media Area credentials do not include access to riser positions, satellite truck parking or the press filing centre." Translated into simple English that means freeze your balls off, speak to nobody and see nothing. If you want to file better make sure that your mobile 'phone is fully charged and has lots of credit.

Your friendly old Exile is inclined to wonder if the Obama camp have ever heard of hubris? They certainly seem to be suffering from a bout of that sense of invincibility that the Gods gave to men just before the rug was pulled out from under them.

It is one thing leaving the small fry out in the cold, without even having a lottery to select a few of them to mingle with their betters. However treating the hacks as if they were a source of campaign finance when there are still two weeks left in the campaign strikes me as just plain idiotic.

I love hubris. It goes especially well on crackers. My wife buys the sort with red peppers mixed it.

Oh, wait. Hoummas.

Or then again, there's always good old vote counting fraud.

McCain can't count, so he's innocent by default...

" YOU, shameless, Obama haters deserve to wallow in defeat spreading lies and innuendo! PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA has a wonderful ring to the ears. And soon, " PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, will be even greater to the ears. Now, live with THAT! "

What, you can see into the future can you, cunt?

The funny thing is, cunt, that given all your powers as a seer, you could not discern that this blog is British.

So we don't have to "live with" anything. We just have to keep plugging away at the notion that the USA should be out of the UK and the UK should be out of NATO. None of that has anything to do with who governs the USA.

The failure to understand that is just another problem that you have, being a cunt.
