… to the past of the man running for President (it’s all smoke and mirrors…or an “illluuuuuusion”). That’s what it seems like the press and the Obama supporters are pushing. I think I’ve been clear in the past that I think we have a dearth of good leadership in this country. Neither McCain nor Obama did much more than spew their campaign ads in the 2nd debate and showed little else. So as we march ever closer (now, under a month) to election day, more news is coming out about Sen. Obama’s past. It turns out that Sen. Obama was part of the “New Party” formed by the Democratic Socialists of America….but his campaign and supporters deny it. Well, us geeks have ways. The Web Archive Project captured some evidence and there’s evidence in other places. Now, be careful, I don’t view this as a desperation move to smear Sen. Obama – it’s fact. We know all sorts of things about Sen. McCain’s past. The dems are quick to bring up George W. Bush’s sortid past. So why can’t people ask about Sen. Obama’s?? Is it out of fear that something really bad is lurking there?
I can only think of two options that this evidence presents: Sen. Obama will do many things, say many things and associate with many people in order to get elected and/or Sen. Obama is a socialist but his “handlers” are afraid of making that public. Neither is palatable. In the first case, we would have a President who would be wooed easily by special interests in order to advance his position. In the latter case, we are potentially electing someone who is at odds with the current government structure of the United States (representative democracy) and who is actively obscuring his true beliefs.
The knee-jerk reaction from liberals I know has been to ad-hominem attack this or deflect the issue and make some claim about Nixionian or Rovian attack policies but it hasn’t been to address the issue directly at hand: Who is Sen. Obama?
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
