Don’t take my Obamacare away: I need to cure my cam-PAINs

It’s not your imagination. Our Public Enemies list is growing. Most recent addition: the Supremes. Not that this is the first time Big Guy’s had to treat them as hostile witnesses. As you recall, he had to scold them at the SOTU address in 2010 after they acted stupidly and threw out portions of the campaign financing law making it harder for us to WTF:

"Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections." Obama said. "Well I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities.”

Although, if you’re concerned with foreign donations, I understand all you have to do is follow the dots. All the dots. Either that or don’t disable the Address Verification System when you accept credit card donations.

Butt this time Big Guy pre-scolded the court, in case they were even thinking about overturning his eponymous Obamacare bill:

"For years, what we've heard is the biggest problem on the bench was judicial activism or the lack of judicial restraint, that an unelected group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law," he said at a news conference. The health-care case is a good example of just that, he said. "And I'm pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step."

Some wonder if he got a hint of which way the wind was blowing after the secret vote last Friday. Although there has never been a leak of that kind in the past, so that’s unlikely. It would be historic if there was.

So, a wise Latina lawyer, a wise ACLU lawyer and a butch Solicitor General walk into a gay bar…

Besides, I don’t see how we could be in trouble with, as Lady M has reminded us in her last 25 campaign stops, with Big Guy’s brilliant appointees on the court:

“And let’s not forget how my husband appointed those two brilliant Supreme Court justices. And let’s not forget how, for the first time in history, our daughters and our sons watched three women take their seats on our nation’s highest court. And we are now feeling the impact of those court decisions and what effect that will have on our children’s lives for decades to come —”

So we’ve got that going for us.

I did find Big Guy’s comments odd though. Not that he called the Justices out - I’ve come to expect that – butt odd that this time he’s threatening to scold them if they refuse to obey his royal decree uphold his law. Because with the Campaign Finance Act, they actually upheld the law; just rejecting the unconstitutional parts. Talk about damned if you do, damned if you don’t. No wonder Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg is hanging her head in shame.

Butt never mind all that, I have some real news. Lady M just made the "All-TIME" 100 Fashion Icons list!

Broken down into the categories of Designers/Brands, Models, Muses, Photographers and Editors/Stylists--the list includes everyone from Coco Chanel to photographer Richard Avedon.

No-brainers like the FLOTUS Michelle Obama, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Robin Givhan, Josephine Baker, Micheal Jackson and supermodels Iman, Naomi Campbell and Beverly Johnson were also highlighted.

Two of TIME’s “no-brainers”


And another of the “no-brainers” performing civic duty after a conviction for assault and battery (Naomi)

Although it appears that despite the inclusions of these “no-brainers” of color on the list, as usual, it’s racist:

However, we have to agree with our ladies over at Huff Post Style that the list is definitely lacking some diversity and that fashion aficionado Andre Leon Talley and model-cum-mogul Tyra Banks are just two of the major fashion players who were robbed from a spot on the rooster.

We also noticed that there were no black designers/brands mentioned, which is a bit shocking since legendary designer Stephen Burrows seems like an obvious shoe-in after helping to put American fashion on the map (even child actors-turned-fashion designers Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen made the cut).

And still, other women, although not technically of color butt brilliant never-the-less, did NOT make TIME’s list of fashion icons:


Maybe next time they’ll ask the children who should be on the list, because we all know that children possess uncanny powers of perception that often elude their wiser elders. As Lady M just told some of our San Francisco donors last week:

I mean, I can’t tell you in the last election how many grandparents I ran into who said, I wasn’t going to vote for Barack Obama until my grandson talked to me, until my great-grandson talked to me, and talked about the future he wanted for this country.

You can get out there with your parents. You guys can knock on doors. I had one young lady who brought me a petition — she’s already working. You can convince wrong people. Sometimes we don’t listen to ourselves, but we will listen to our children.

Butt rest well, as Breitbart pointed out, this time around Chicago Rules apply so all those grandparents and great grandparents are likely to be voting for Big Guy –


even if they need a little help getting to the polls.

P.S. Don’t forget: today is the last day to vote for the Conservative Moms to defeat the Prog Moms: Top 25 Political Moms 2012. Remember, you can vote for as many of the conservative moms as you want (you’ll recognize a lot of them from my sidebar).  It’s close, so every vote counts – butt only once from each IP address.

I’m going to scurry down to Starbucks to vote again. And then maybe on to Panera…
