Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are

(NOTE: The following video from the Onion is intended solely for laughs. While I plead guilty to posting it here, I had nothing to do with making it. If you feel your humor is "thin" at the moment, you might want to forgo it at this time.)


Obama Win Causes Obsessive Supporters To Realize How Empty Their Lives Are

I get the humor, but if obsessive supporters got a new regime in place & we took back our country.... then kudos to them .

I was wondering if we would have a stolen election & eventually a president Palin.

Kudos & much gratitude to the obsessive supporters.

"I was wondering if we would have a stolen election & eventually a president Palin." ~Fran

Yes, I was too. I was very pleased with the outcome of this election. Yet there are reports of all kinds of problems on election day leaving me to wish we could some day have an honest election without distortionists exercising their art on these days. Perhaps it might have been even worse for the minority party. (Oooh, that sounds so good to say!)

Yet, some of the visuals in this vid I found very funny.

Dada, it made me laugh, as you may have predicted. Your disclaimer up front signals you knew some of your readership may not find it so funny, as perhaps Fran did not. So perhaps you're poking us all a bit here.

And seriously, the reason I can laugh now is because the election ended so much more happily for me than the last two presidential elections did. It is a laugh of relief as well as joy because I was braced for another stolen election or an election by an ignorant and racist electorate. It could have been so bad and it wasn't. That makes it a lot easier to laugh at myself.

Thanks B.E. - Yes, it was an excellent outcome, wasn't it?!

"That makes it a lot easier to laugh at myself."

Yes, I'm laughing too! ??? (Ah, was that intentionally vague? J/K) Seriously, knowing you personally and your penchant for any chance to laugh, and knowing how strongly you advocated for Obama, I KNEW you would be able to laugh at this vid! (~ I agree, the outcome helps tremendously)

Seriously, I spent all of Wednesday wondering what I was going to blog about now, now that the election was over and the bastards weren't able to steal this one. The outcome made me the happiest I've been in this millenium.

Laughed my ass off all the way through it. Great spoof. If you can't laugh at life, you've really got a problem. Thanks, Dada, for the levity.

that was a funny clip... although one of the sites i relied on for a cross section of views "One Thousand Reasons: Documenting the Failures of the Bush Administration" chained their doors the day after the election...
life goes on and just keeps getting better and better. i found this Alice Walker’s Letter to President-elect Obama. to be a very positive and invigorating piece

Namaste

OMG, this is hilarious. There's always work to do in this world but the self-importance levity was well-done.

I noticed there was an Obama supporter with the "tag" Austin, Texas. That sly dig on the statencapital really made me laugh even more. In fact, I think I know that guy, or someone just like him.

Dada said...

Just marveling at the latest spate of entertained reactions to this Onion video.

I was pretty sure most would enjoy this, simply for the laughs it provides. Your comments validate that feeling.

eprof - mariamaria -- ditto!

abol: yes, I experienced that "lost" feeling Wed. morning after Tues. night.

Thanks for the Alice Walker link. Always a big fan of hers, despite not being nearly as evolved as she, I read it and, where she was saying, "A primary responsibility that you do have, however, is to cultivate happiness in your own life," I'm sure I wasn't interpreting that as you were, nor as she intended maybe, but I started salivating about cultivating a little happiness by downing a few excellent ales -- with dear friends in a place like the High Desert Brewing Co., in Las Cruces, NM (now a blue state!).

It's amazing how attitudes can change in a day or two. The nation's still crashing and burning, but it's gonna be easier to endure now that soon I won't suspect our government is contributing to our problems by stealing from us.

... had to wait til I felt my humor quotient was returning. Pretty funny, Dada! though I couldn't help but think of how *I* might be looking right now if McC-P (or P-McC as the ticket was known in UT) were measuring the drapes & touring their future WH home.

I've been walking on air the last few days & even smiling at my neighbors who are of course very very down. Unlike your vid, THEY are the zombie ones around here. if it wasn't for *their* big prop 8 "victory" in CA, they'd probably be jim-jonesing. oh but just wait til Sunday when they will come back from church armed with multiple ways to obstruct & inhibit whatever the O-Boy might do.

so see, there is still much that needs to be done to counteract all that negativity. no zombie-ism for me. as I constantly remind the hub when his ears are bleeding, when I stop yakking, it's time to dig my grave (or buy my urn, whatever).

but as Scotty McClellen wrote about the Bushies, it's all one loooong campaign now, so you know we will be swept up again. is it too much to ask for a couple years of peace (even, gasp, prosperity?) ... (yes apparently it is).
