Patterico's Pontifications


Sockpuppet Friday (Not Sockpuppet Friday, per se edition)

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engage in sockpuppetry in this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please, be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

Sockpuppet comments about the Republican primary race are strictly prohibited. If you wish to use sockpuppets for that purpose, confine your comments to this thread. Same goes for any discussion that is not funny where people want to get angry at each other. Offending comments will be summarily deleted and the violators flogged.

And remember: the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.

Yesterday, Pres. Obama informed us that the stimulus sinkhole that funded his friends at now-bankrupt Solyndra was “not our program per se.” Many people, including Michelle Malkin and Iowahawk, had fun with that whopper on Twitter. If you asked him today, Obama might claim that Obamacare is not his program, per se. It got me thinking: Is Barack Obama’s middle name “Danger”?

    Joe Biden (dd1bdb)

  3. If we can’t get through this thread today without nastiness I may kill the sockpuppet threads. Fair warning.

    Patterico (bb8f28)

  4. Congress is to blame for Solyndra, per se.

    JD (318f81)

  5. I defended a lady (loosely speaking, and boy was she loose) who charged $20.00 per sex.

    nk (dec503)

  6. (Now that I found myself over at the right thread, and thanks to Byrnsy for getting me going in right direction) Anyone who says “per se” in a presidential speech or address is a g**-da** as*h**e, and you can quote me on that boys.

    Harry Truman (255b30)

  7. It depends on what your definition of ‘per se’ is

    Slick Willie (ae96a4)

  8. Harry,

    When I saw your name in the sidebar, I would’ve sworn your comment was going to be: “The Buck Does Not Stop Here, Per Se.”

    Karl (f07e38)

  9. My speechwriter told me that I sound more intellectual if I use Austrian language words, like per se, in my speeches.

    509th Bob (dd1bdb)

  10. 4. One of the reasons I don’t sockpuppet. The other being I am unfunny.

    gary gulrud (1de2db)

  11. I am not an @sshole, per se.

    JD (228f15)

  12. Was somebody calling my name?

  14. I write “I think” at the end of all my posts. Ain’t I edgy?

    crappyfeet (3b425f)

  15. I am not responsible for anything, per se. It is all Bush’s fault, per se. Per se, I just love the way that sounds. Per se.

    President Barack Obama (7051ab)

  16. “If I had a son
    he would look like Trayvon” but
    this is local thing

    Colonel Barry (df9857)

  17. “Oh, the Media decided We Have To Have a National Discussion about this story.

    1. I appreciate the media dubbing Zimmerman “a white Hispanic.” Like the Israelis, he’s now an honorary member of the Oppressive White Majority.

    2. Certain local stories of race-on-race crime ignite the media’s passions. Others do not.

    3. Most of the time, stories like the one I just linked are not reported by the media, for various reasons. One is that, alas, black on white crime is so common as to be not newsworthy, whereas the reverse is rare and hence, oddly, makes national news.

    Another reason is that such stories are, by their nature, inflammatory (no pun intended, of course).

    But the media does not mind inflammatory stories when the right people are inflamed. Farrakhan, for example, states that “soon and very soon” the “law of retaliation” “may be applied.”

    Now, if that story about the black kids setting the white kid on fire — while declaring “You’re white, this is what you deserve” — was excessively inflammatory, why the media rush to inflame further black on white violence?”

    Colonel Haiku (df9857)

  18. SAY WHAT??? I don’t look at damned thing like Obama.

    Trayvons normal sized ears (36e9a7)

  19. Trayvon = innocent

    Obama = criminal

    Let Me Be Perfectly Clear (b60639)

  20. Damn kids! Get off of my bandwidth!!!

    Pattonrico (b60639)

  21. Yuk fu, buddy!

    (Yummy Chinese food at reasonable prices.)

    Wheredidileavemyhappypills? (b60639)

  22. Obama wrote the Solyndra deal on me.

    Etch-A-Sketch (b60639)

  23. Look at me! I just keep ringing up those unprecedented achievements. Most recently, 1st Prez to not approve an international pipeline. And now another downgrade – to a 1/2 pipe.

    Preznut Downgrade (cada1d)

  24. Half-pipes are the s***! You can hide them in your pocket and cops are none the wiser . . . per se.

    Barry Sotero (b60639)

  25. I per se my taxes.

    Tim the tax cheat (44de53)

  26. We want to raise our daughters to have real values, like appreciating how good they have it. That is why we paid for our 13 yr old girl to go to Mexico on Spring break with her friends, so she can see how the little people live.

    FLOTUS (a1fcca)

  27. Some people might worry about their daughters’ budding hormones and worry about sending them out of the country with other rich friends on Spring Break. I don’t since I have 25 Secret Service agents paid for with taxpayer dollars to keep off the latin romeos.

    POFTUS (a1fcca)

  28. WAPO reporters are not “in the tank” for Obama. Just because the first sentence of my article in the religion section of the Post last Sat. said Santorum is in no way qualified to be President, doesn’t mean I’m anti-republican.

    Miller, WAPO reporter (a1fcca)

  29. Pipeline To Nowhere
    one more of Chairman Barry’s
    half-assed “solutions”

    Colonel Haiku (5b963b)

  30. Listen up little people. I need to look good if I’m going to run for national office on the Democratic ticket. With the help of the Democratic controlled Maryladn House and Senate, I’ve increased spending by a billion, raised taxes, fees and shifted former state programs to the counties (who will have to raise their taxes to cover the teachers’ pensions), and made the conressional districts even more lopped sided than ever. Not bad for a session’s work.

    Gov. O'Malley (a1fcca)

  31. Obama and libtards believe that 13 year olds should be able to get THE PILL per se.
    Well I believe his daughter Malaria, might have difficulty getting “access” in jolly old mejico.

    THE PILL (36e9a7)

  32. one less Mohammed
    makes for a future so bright
    I gotta wear shades

    Colonel Haiku (5b963b)

  33. let’s keep string alive
    while we got some Mo-mentum
    and stock of virgins

    Colonel Haiku (5b963b)

  34. I like to lay pipe, too, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

    President Bubba (b0b671)

  35. Trayvon Martin case
    “The blacks are under attack”
    says Jesse Jackson

  36. Ted Kennedy In The Hot Tub: “I was in the whirlpool at the Senate gym in 2008, recovering from Hodgkin’s, when Ted Kennedy came over and climbed into the bath. Kennedy was one of the Senate’s giants, in many ways. It was as though a gigantic walrus had plunged into the sea, causing the level to swell. I’d never seen two men in the whirlpool before

    I Work Here. Is done. (330eed)

  37. Well, that whole war on women thing didn’t work out, so I got to thinking, “What is a sure fire way to distract everybody for a couple of days?”

    I was coming up with zilch, until I sat down to watch my favorite show on MSNBC with that funny guy. What’s his name? Oh, yeah, Al something.

    Then it clicked. What always gets the base going?

    You’re welcome.

    David Axelrod (b0b671)

  38. Curses. Foiled again.

    I, oh so cleverly, thought I threw out my bait:

    “Look at me! I just keep ringing up those unprecedented achievements. Most recently, 1st Prez to not approve an international pipeline. And now another downgrade – to a 1/2 pipe.”

    Convinced I’d be called on – where’s the “per se”. I’d be tentative. Claim I just wasn’t sure I could complete it, ie w/ the per se. But since I’ve been challenged, here goes, the punchline:

    “I wssn’t going off, half-cocked, per se”.

    I condemn myself.

    Preznut Downgrade (cada1d)

  39. I’m so excited about my new blog. I’m doing a little redesign. Which pic of me is more flattering?

    This one….

    …or this one?

    Nadia (e39e6c)

  40. Last week it was all about me! Now I’m back to obscurity? What’s up with that?

    Rutherford B. Hayes (063632)

  41. Since the guy who is allegedly president, per se, can’t take responsibility for the programs he advocates, I’ll step up and take the blame.

    By the way, what the hell is a “community organizer,” per se ?

    My phone line is open !

    Rutherford B. Hayes (0ae97d)

  42. “Alex, I’ll take, the category, ‘Incorrect Historical Facts’ for $100, please.”

    Barry Soetoro (0ae97d)

  43. “Excuse me, Mr. Soetoro, but just how did you qualify for ‘College Jeopardy Week’ when you don’t even have a college transcript to provide ?!”

    Alex Trebek (0ae97d)

  44. “Uh, well, uh,…you’re a racist !”

    Barry Soetoro (0ae97d)

  45. I hope I’m the incorrect answer to the $2000 question in the category of “Incorrect Historical Facts”…a potentially good question might be, “Whose autobiography was ghostwritten by terrorist Bill Ayres ?”

    Chester A. Arthur (0ae97d)

  46. I got a cousin named Rufus Ford. What up, dawg?

    President Phoning-It-In (b60639)

  47. What’s an obscure former President got to do to be slandered by the current obscure President, per se ?

    Franklin Pierce (0ae97d)

  48. With the way I keep getting blamed for everything that’s happened during the past three years and two months, I am under the impression that I’m still President !

    But then, there was this one week during the beginning of May, 2011, where the Navy SEALS killed Bin Laden, and this Obama guy jumped up and assured everyone that he was the President… at least…for that week, until the price of oil shot up…then it was my fault, again ! And apparently, Sarah Palin had a hand in the price of oil, too ! I was told she’s dumb…hmmm, so, I wonder how she figured out how to manipulate the price of oil ? Weird, wild stuff !

    George W. Bush (0ae97d)

  49. If I could warn future generations about the unstable minds of left wing nuts, I would. Some of them like to hang out around railroad stations…be careful !

    James A. Garfield (0ae97d)

  50. Yeah, you don’t need to remind me !

    William McKinley (0ae97d)

  51. Hey, Garfield and McKinley, it’s Rutherford…er, I mean, Roooootherford B. Hayes, here on the phone…in 2012, the left wing nuts don’t just hang out at railroad stations or political speeches…they actually occupy the White House !

    Rutherford B. Hayes (0ae97d)

  52. Team Obama is now marketing “Obamacare is a BFD” t-shirts on twitter. I guess what happened to the #ILikeObamacare Hashtag wasn’t embarrassing enough. But, in a way, Obama is right. Obamacare is a BFD —

    Over 700 San Diegans Rallied for Religious Freedom: Elite Media Minimizes. There were over 130 cities that held similar events yesterday. Most of the ones in major cities were attended by 1000 plus people. All were focused on the HHS mandate’s threat to First Amendment Protections.

    The elite media has tried to downplay reports with false numbers as questionable polls. However, every Bishop from the nearly 200 Diocese in America has sent a formal letter of protest, and the events brought together people of all faiths and races who know get what an existential threat the administration is.

    I don’t think BFD means what Team Obama thinks it means, though.

  53. I’m obscure, too! And I got a beard, per se! Don’t sleep on ol’ Ben, mkay?

    Benjamin Harrison (063632)

  54. President Harrison,

    I think the current obscure President is going to blame you next week for not being “hip” enough to broadcast your March Madness predictions on ESPN !

    Grover Cleveland (0ae97d)

  55. Hey, why didn’t ol’ Ben go on ESPN and give his predictions for March Madness back in the 1890s ? The technology was available to you, back then. After all, everyone knows that television actually dates back to the 1840s. I’ve seen the clips on YouTube of ol’ Abe Lincoln going on CNN to calm the nation at the outbreak of The Civil War !

    Joe Biden (0ae97d)

  56. Pope: Communism no longer working in Cuba……

    C’mon, Pope… it never worked.

    Colonel Haiku (bd479c)

  57. I am soooo screwed.

    Jon Corzine (3681c4)

  58. Peepeles of the Free State of Maryland.
    Arise and join with me the Friday next at this place.
    Put on your sockpuppets and make fun of the man who just raised your taxes. Make fun of the slimebag legislators who are willing to take your tax dollars and waste them. Laugh at your local county oficials who have been sent to jail the last year.
    Arise and fight with me!
