I’ve been feeling a little guilty about not reporting on Lady M’s sacrificin’ for the past week or so. So as I wrap up my vacation, let me at least pass on news about this campaign stop in Gainesville as originally reported by our own Blonde Gator.
Apparently MO appeared before a huge crowd at the University of Florida, and wowed them with her own two versions of ‘gator choppers:
Nice gator skin dress!
She then awed those gathered for the pep rally with tall tales of Big Guy’s respect for and loyalty to everyone:
"We know that my husband will always have our backs," she said.
Don’t worry, I’ve got your back!
On the other hand, you could just hire your own Black Water security team. Or buy your own shoulder mounted rocket launcher. I understand that the Department of Justice has some surplus stock that you may be able to get your hands on. The State Department has some available too, butt it in either case, it helps if you can prove you’re not an American Citizen.
Like her speech earlier this month at the Democratic National Convention, Obama filled her argument for the president with personal details. She cited his respect for his mother and grandmother,
Would that be the mother who dumped him on his grandmother to raise in order to “follow her heart” in Indonesia? It does take a special special kind of guy to love a mother like that. And we all know BO’s a special kind of guy.
Don’t jump to conclusions just because he was unable to show his mother the respect of being at her side when she died. He was on a book tour - for the first of his many autobiographies.
And the grandmother that MO mentioned that BO respected so much? Would that be his “typical white woman” grandmother he mentioned in his “race speech” addressing the controversy over his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright? Granny D and Rev. Wright: two people who held a special place
under his bus in his heart:
"I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother -- a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world."
The grandma that Big Guy respected so much - would she be the same grandmother whose side he also was unable to be at when she died just 2 days before WINNING? Well, at least it wasn’t a book tour. And he was able to send a letter to be read at her funeral, hastily arranged some 13 days after her death.
"What truly made me fall in love with Barack Obama was his character," she said.
That figures. Birds of a feather and all.
Character. Class. You’ve either got ‘em or you ain’t.
