The Corpseman-in-Chief [updated]

Heading over to the Scoop website this morning to check out all the talk about yesterday’s non-event, I was amused to discover that this SOLO Press Release outrated all the talk about John Boy’s Big Day:

Press Release: SOLO - Sense of Life Objectivists
SOLO-International Op-Ed: Corpseman-in-Chief

With each new long, drawn out, and substantively empty speech, President Obama's silver tongue has revealed a brain of mush. Most recently, Obama referred to a Navy corpsman as "corpseman", since apparently the teleprompter has not yet incorporated pronunciations phonetically for Dear Leader. Nevertheless, I found the term a wonderfully symbolic moniker for the president himself, and not just applied to his intellectual vacuity, but rather to the entirety of his methods and goals. . .

Read on here—or head here for a great discussion.

UPDATE: Added a link to the original discussion.


  1. What is with attacking Obama for reading off a teleprompter, it's not relevant to anything that matters.

  2. Sarah Palin is talking like a libertarian (er! like a Peter Creswell). I would say, that she talked like a libertarian in about 70% of the issues that a true libertarians like Mr. Creswell truly believes or advocates for.

    I've read about all the issues of what Mrs Palin had said in her speech right here on Not PC blog. Umm, it makes me wondered if she is a regular reader of this blog or her advisers have been.

    Palin for president.

  3. I don't usually respond to Redbaiter for obvious reasons, but he simply could not be more wrong. The fact that large numbers of Americans are now acutely aware of the extent to which government controls their lives, and want to do something about it is actually one of libertarianism's greatest successes.

    The ideological battle has been won. Now for the political battle.
