There are times when I just need to do something else than look at Hillary, John, Rudy,and Obama. New Horizons continues on it’s journey to Pluto, taking pictures like these as it goes. Pretty cool, huh?

Roland Martin Needs His Head Examined

Posted by Mark on January 8, 2008

I read Roland Martin’s column ( from time to time…just to try and understand what it’s like to think COMPLETELY OPPOSITE of me. So I always land up shaking my head…..and yesterday’s column was no different:I was there on that frigid February day in Springfield, Illinois, when Obama, standing in the shadows of the old Capitol where Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous “House Divided” speech, announced his candidacy for president. While the senator’s soaring rhetoric was warmly received, it was assumed that, if he could just survive the first two states, maybe he wouldn’t embarrass himself. But the game has changed, and all of a sudden, there is a sense that Obama could win this thing.Yes the game has changed…for the DEMOCRATS …but not for the rest of us…you twit.

Obama is the first candidate of his generation truly to be an agent of change who inspires, motivates and ignites the passion in a large segment of Americans who had ignored politics because it was unseemly and didn’t move people to action.My e-mail inbox and my talk show lines filled up with people who say that listening to Obama empowers them to get involved, that he is able to connect with them on an emotional and spiritual level that is reminiscent of John and Robert Kennedy and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.

Obama seeks to serve as a bridge between the divisions in America that exist between young and old, haves and have-nots, liberals and conservatives, Republicans and Democrats.
It’s reminiscent of Lincoln’s speech and King’s book, “Why We Can’t Wait,” a compilation of his letters from the Birmingham jail.
At the end of the day, Obama is trying to speak to the core of America that says we can overcome all the barriers that exist between us if we simply are willing to trust in one another.

At the end of the day Mr. Martin…you’re CLUELESS. Obama has the highest liberal voting record in the Senate. Obama is NOT speaking to the core of America…he’s speaking to the core of the DEMOCRATS…and especially to the flaming moonbats like MoveOn dot Idiot. you knucklehead.

And conservatives are going to cross over? Uh…….no. No they won’t. If Obama wins the Democratic nomination and manages to become president…it won’t be because of ‘bridging’ with Republicans….it will be because voting Democrats SHOWED UP in mass on election day.
