I want my Obamaphone!
The younger generation, and to me that means almost everyone, sees a cellular phone as something much more than a telephone. It's a symbol even if everyone and his 5 year old kid has one and the semiotic value has much to do with the snob quotient, the joy of having something before anyone else has one, and very little to do with making phone calls. So judging from the jealousy in Rush Limbaugh's voice, the phone to have, the phone he doesn't have, is the Obamaphone.
No, being filthy rich won't help, in fact it has no price and it's so exclusive it doesn't actually exist. It's just another vintage lie from past Republican campaigns, wandering zombie-like from lectern to podium to press conference to blog page to radio show. Yes. Yes indeed. There is one born every minute and a Tea Party con man to take him.
If you're dumb enough to believe that Barack H. Obama is handing out free telephones to the gleefully unemployed "takers" along with the free money he takes from you and hands out to leeches and bums and welfare queens -- you're just the sort of person the Tea Party wants on its side. That's why they keep telling you you can't have one of these phones even though your life's blood is being drained in order to pay for thousands of them. That's Tea Party Dumb. That's Drudge Report Dumb. That's the sort of dumb Kansas Senatorial candidate Milton Wolf hopes Kansans are when he uses this moldy, mangy, sleazy and threadbare lie to make people so angry they'll vote for a piece of shit like him.
Recently a frozen virus was dug up in Antarctic ice and it's still viable after 300,000 years. Republican lie makers can only dream of such near-immortality, but their lies do last, don't they? They still believe Democrats started the Great Depression, that Barack Obama started the near-Depression years even before he was elected and they still believe 47% of Americans live tax free and get free money, food, lodging and telephones and people like Rush Limbaugh pay far too much of their hard lied-for income so that lazy black women can have free cellphones to talk on while they lay around eating free food and waiting for the welfare check.
Now there has been a program in place to provide phones for the indigent so that they can look for jobs, but it's private money and it was started by George W. Bush, just like the recession and two wars and the record spending and unemployment they think you're dumb enough to blame on Obama.
And are they right about you -- you Tea Party stooge, you Limbaugh listening, Fox following empty headed fool? If you're one of those, eat your heart out. You can't have an Obamaphone or one of those special welfare queen edition Cadillacs or any of that free money and you can't have a country with any future either. And that's no lie.
