Hope, Change and Rubes

Seeing that Glenn has provided the roundup (see especially Right Wing News where the real roundup is) of the reaction on the left to Obama selecting Pastor Rick Warren to deliver the inauguration invocation, we’ll make note of the inclusion of his oft-asked question, “who are the rubes?”

And in an effort to be helpful, let us just point out the following:

  • You cannot spell “OBAMA HAS PISSED ME OFF” without H-O-P-E
  • You cannot spell “OBAMA WILL HAVE TO FACE MY ANGER” without C-H-A-N-G-E
  • You cannot spell “I AM OUTRAGED AT OBAMA” without R-U-B-E
  • It might just come in handy in the future.

    Oh, and one more thing:

  • You cannot spell “OBAMA’S PROMISES TO BRING YOU HOPE AND CHANGE ARE BULLSHIT” without    I   T-O-L-D   Y-O-U   S-O
  • Again, just to be helpful.


    1. If the directive was, "Get the pastor from Lake Forest," it's easy to see how the staff could have bungled it.
