This is positively amazing. Some douchebag named Dan Riehl actually blogged this about Senator Obama’s visit to see his dying grandmother. She’s not expected to make it until the election in which the grandson she helped raise is chosen to be the president of the United States of America. He actually wrote this for all to see. Unbelievable:
I’m not doubting she is ill. But believe me, if you think this guy would leave the campaign trail for an hour if he felt he were running from behind, he wouldn’t do it. Not unless he thought it helped him to do so…
Man. I hope his numbers don’t start to drop. He might have to hold a pillow against her face and maybe later break into tears the way Hillary did. Only I suspect hers were genuine.
That right there is the definition of shameless. A person should be embarrassed just thinking such a thing. Uttering it in public? That’s positively fail. Epic fail, as they say.
UPDATE: Turns out Senator Obama’s trip wasn’t to go
smother visit his dying grandmother afterall. Nope. Seems he was going there to to sort out his birth certificate snafu. This whole “dying grandmother” thing is just an elaborate ruse to cover up the fact that he’s actually not an American and wasn’t born here and isn’t Constitutionally-qualified to be the President of the United States of America. Dang. Who knew?
I’m just sayin’…
