OBAMA= NO PONY
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 01:25 AM by boppers
Seriously, his cabinet appointments worry me, as they come from both pro-pony and anti-pony factions.

His recent website changes indicate that he may be softening his stance on ponies.

Will Rahm give me a pony? Hillary?

Damnit, I want a pony. I didn't work for him to be pony-less.

I can only conclude that Obama has given up on us, his base, his netroots, because he is not giving us all ponies.

2. Can he at least get sworn in first?
Did he say Ponies right after the election, or once he was President?

Cause he may not yet have access to the pony kitty as President Elect. :shrug:

3. He does not seem to have appointed a Pony CZAR.
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 01:39 AM by boppers
...Nor a pony cabinet position.

If he really cared about my ponies, he should win my approval before taking office, by taking a firm stand on this issue!

4. So he has to get everyone a pony... AND find a hypoallergenic dog for his kids.
I guess governing will have to wait.

6. Why would his dog outrank my pony?
Has he given up on us, to put his needs before ours?

I thought he cared about us?

7. I think he probably plans to pass out ponies,
but he needs to particularly co-opt the anti-pony partisans in the Party by pulling them into the playfield.

It will be more pleasant for him to partake punches from anti-pony pundits with a plethora of paleo-ponistas on point.

Personally, I am presently pro-pony, particularly petulent and partially patient.

20. Will I qualify for the Wii
Edited on Mon Dec-08-08 09:45 AM by junofeb
By claiming natural Illinois birth?

My birth certificate from Peoria Il has to prove I'm a naturally born Illinoian, unless of course, my parents slipped over the border from Wisconsin to make sure the birth announcements were in the Peoria papers the next day. For some arcane reason, no doubt.

Maybe it's so I could qualify for the Wii? I've got too many ponies as it is.

26. Your parents were wise to do so.
I'll put in a good word for you re the Wii.

If you need us to ship you any special Illinois pony ... compost, just let me know. There's lots of it down here.

38. LOL!
Sound like you have enough with Blaggo.

I lived in Springfield during republican rule, Ryan and what-his-face before him. I was well out of state for the elections who brought in the current scum, but I at least appreciated he was dem. MISTAKE. I think IL has a law that only the most corrupt overlords who treat the state as a personal fief get to be gov.

I love my home state, but sometimes I think FL and LA have nothing on it.

32. Why should he be partial to Illinoians? He's from HAWAII !!!
Just because you elected him to the Senate. Sheesh. Take the Pony and be happy.

Heck, I didn't get my 40 acres, OR my mule, and I'm not making as much of a fuss. A Wii. Hmph. I should go to the Salvation Army and get you an Atari set.

He's not passing out Wii sets until after the 2012 campaign.

39. Never had the pleasure of voting for him before November.
But my sister's been in his districts for years. She probably deserves the Atari game, not me. It'll be good for her eye-hand coordination, she needs to graduate from PONG.

19. That's okay.
I live in an apartment owned by Republicans. I don't think they'd let me have a pony even with a pet deposit. Especially if it came from Obama.

21. I want a pony if I win Adult Mids!
Gee, why don't I just flap my arms and fly to the moon?!

(For the figure-skating impaired, "Adult Mids" is an annual competition to qualify the best adult skaters for the Championship events at USFSA adult nationals. They have Adult Eastern, Adult Midwestern, and Adult Pacifics. I've skated in Adult Mids for the past seven years now, and have almost always come in near last in Gold Ladies. :mad:)

22. No pony = no pony shit, which will become horseshit in time.
So, that's a good thing, unless you need lots of horseshit.

In the spirit of "Post Partisanship", Obama is going to give ponies to all the Republicans first.

25. The problem with a pony is that it's only 1/2 horsepower and a grass guzzler.
I want something more fuel efficient for it's size.

27. I'd already lost hope for a magic pony and now any pony of any kind is seeming unlikely.
Looks like it will be a ponyless Christmas, er Holiday Season, after all.

40. Do NOT get me started on my pony rant
I was on the fence in the primary, and then I saw a sign at the local Obama religious recruiting center that said, sign up today and get a free pony. So I shaved my head and went door to door and sacrificed virgins and and and EVERYTHING.

WHERE THE FUCK IS MY PONY, OBAMA.

I know your people read this. Don't expect a second term if you can't make good on first term promises.
