Ich Bin Laden I’m Not

Tiergarten Park, Germany --- Barack Obama received a rock superstar welcome while he delivered a speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Germany today. Ecstatic Germans were holding up placards saying, “Obama for Kanzler”, or “Obama for Chancellor.” Yes, not only does a growing percentage of American voters want Obama to be our president, people of other nations want him to be their leader, as well.

To date, no protests had to be kept away from Senator Obama, no burning of effigies. Nothing. Just adulation at, aptly, the Victory Column.

The choice of venue for Senator Obama to call on Germany and our other European allies to fight terrorism was brilliant and perfect. At the site of where the Berlin Wall once stood, Obama said, “The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand. The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. The walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand.”

It was, without a doubt, the most powerful speech by an American statesman in Germany since John F. Kennedy’s famous “I am a jelly donut speech” in June of 1963.

No doubt, this will make Sour Grapes McCain even more sour. So what was John McCain doing while Obama was taking Europe by storm with his only public speech during his whirlwind trip?

Pissing and moaning to Sean Handjob on Fox “News” about media bias. Here’s a partial transcript of the interview:
HANNITY: Well, let me ask you about that, because this is Barack Obama. He is your opponent, and his first trip ever to Afghanistan, hasn't been back to Iraq in 900 some odd days, and the three major networks and their big stars out there to cover this. (Getting out spoon to shove question between McCain’s chipmunk cheeks) Does that bother you at all? Is that — what do you think of that? Is that media bias?

MCCAIN: No, but, you know, one of the things that's very interesting, he had never before asked to sit down and get a briefing from General Petraeus. I mean — and the other thing I thought was interesting, he issued his policy statement towards Iraq and Afghanistan, which as you mentioned never been to, before he left.

Then Sean asked to fellate him during the commercial break and McCain begged off, saying, “Look, I love you, but I can't do that. By the way, are we still at war with Czechoslovakia?”

So there you have it. Obama takes Germany and, apparently, most of Europe by storm by calling for multilateral cooperation in the struggle against terrorism, global warming, you know, all the things ignored by Bush these past seven and a half years.

Meanwhile, McCain was basically grousing one-on-one to Fox’s Sean Hannity about Obama’s popularity and intimating that Americans are not serving their interests by voting for him.

mcCain could be photographed fucking a puppy on rupert murdoch's front lawn and they would find a way to spin it.

obama could be passing out protien biscuits and drinking water in darfur and they'd find a way to diss it.

it's so fucking blatant it's not even outraging me anymore.

this speech was fucking kennedyesque.

without, of course, the grammar mistake. one which most germans heard and instantly forgave.

my cello teacher at the time of kennedy's berlin speech was wolfgang von schutte. he was a heidelburg scarred veteran of ww2 and the german music machine. he was not a man to trifle with. he heard the kennedy sound bite and said "he sess he is pastry. ein berliner iss donut mitt jam. zo, vee do scalez, ja?"

vee did scalez ja.

He was not at the Brandenburg Gate.. That location was asked for but declined by German Govt. The address took place a long way down the road, though the Gate was within view some distace away.

This is turning into one of, if not the, worst months I may have ever seen a candidate have. McSame just looks lost. OT, I may not comment much, but I hit this site on a regular basis. Thanks for cutting your walkabout short.

The national polls have just GOT to be rigged. The sense of support that Senator Obama has is so much more than for McCain.

The polls are lying to us, they just have to be. By informal indicators, Obama is way, way ahead.

I postulate that the polls are artificially keeping McCain within 8, or so, points of Obama so that when Diebold announces McCain the winner, it will be plausible to the American people.
