If You Love Me…

Clingy.  Desperate. That phrase is the sort of emotional extortion that usually prefaces a request for something you don’t really want to do, e.g., an odious household chore, an unusual sex act, etc.:

President Obama continued pushing his jobs bill in battleground states on Wednesday, telling a fired-up crowd of students at North Carolina State University that, “If you love me, you’ve got to help me pass this bill!”

The Artist Formerly Known As The One also would like to go on a dinner date with you… if you’re buying.

Mr. President, America’s just not that into youReally.  Your appeals to what remains of your cult of personality increasingly make you look like Sally Field’s character in Soapdish, running out to some mall in New Jersey for an ego boost from gullible fans while the ratings dwindle.  People will start to talk.

Report subversive criticism of Our Leader here.

If you’re so inclined, maybe consider dropping a note to our friends at the IRS as well. After all, those who irresponsibly criticize the President may well be tax cheats too. Can’t hurt to make sure!

Thanks to S.J., who gets reported for telling me about it.

Democrat Spin on Losing Weiner’s Seat

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:27 am

Ed Morrissey says the district has been held by Democrats since the days of Warren G. Harding. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s spin? It’s a “difficult district for Democrats.”

When I confront spin like that, I am reminded of the line from “The Princess Bride”: “Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.”

Thanks to J.D.
