Does Not Help!

Now that I have your attention with that mangled version of an internet meme:

Accusing the president of having some sort of vendetta against the caucasian race does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Glenn Beck and all those who stand with him.)

Explaining all criticism of the president with charges of racism does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Maureen Dowd, Jeremiah Wright, and all the rest of you who believe skin color correlates with immunity to criticism.)

Accusing the one side of wanting to create "death panels" does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Sarah Palin.)

Accusing the other side of wanting to "pull the plug on Grandma" because they disagree with your side does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Charles Grassley. YOU too, Jacob Weinberg. )

Having people in ranks on your march who advocate killing the president and who would distort your numbers does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Tea Party men who refuse to eliminate the radicals from your ranks.)

...no matter which side of the line you are on. (I'm looking at YOU, all you who marched for the death of Bush with claims he stole the 2000 election.)

Referring to said marchers by crude gaming and sexual practices does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Anderson Cooper.)

Clamoring that the president is somehow illegitimate does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, all you Birther types out there.)

Antichristic tendencies do not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Westboro-church-types who want the president to die in office.)

Messianic tendencies do not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Joe Klein, and all you college kids who thought Obama had a magic wand.)

Throw down your own "do not help!" in the comments!

UPDATE 10/1:

From Dark_Falcon:
Accusing the other side of having a health care plan that entails having sick people "die quickly" does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Alan Grayson.)

And from ArchangelMichael:
Pretending like it's your job to prop up the stock market and failing businesses instead of controlling inflation does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Ben Bernanke.)

Also from ArchangelMichael (and he makes a very good point very succinctly, one that every nominally rightist blog on the intarwebs should have burned into their monitors):
Doing and saying outrageous things just because the other side did it when their guy wasn't in office does not help. (I'm looking at YOU, Right Wing Blogosphere and Talk Radio Hosts)

From Sharmuta:
Claiming the President is brainwashing children doesn't help. (I'm looking at YOU, Michelle Malkin.)

Also from Sharmuta:
Saying we should slit our wrists and be blood brothers to save America doesn't help. (I'm looking at YOU, Michele Bachmann.)

Thanks lots!


  1. Seems you're huffing and puffing at Michelle Malkin and others just to make yourself look good to your newfound "buddies" at LGF. You are talking out of both sides of your mouth while standing on nothing.

    Your principles are mushy, my friend.

  2. No, not talking out of both sides, just being balanced. And though the Pres. is not personally trying to brainwash our kids, some of his more enthusiastic supporters are, so I'd add those in public schools cuaght on video organizing kids to sing his praises to this list.

  3. Centaur: Yeah, some of the celebrity videos talking about "wanting to be of service to the President" get a bit creepy. They certainly won't help create a rational, sane America.

    And hey, my first nay-sayer! Come on, put your name on your comments! I'm a lunatic who double-times this blog for both politics and Team Fortress 2! How much of a threat could I be?
