I participate in an email listserv group with a bunch of politically incorrect retired military aviators. As you might imagine the traffic can get a bit rough at times. We've got only one rule for the group: "Say what you mean. Mean what you say. And f*** you if you can't take a joke."
The idea of saying what you mean and standing behind it when the consequences fall out is a good one. I posted a couple of days ago about the Messiah announcing that it wasn't as "cool to be an Obama supporter" today as it was in 2008. I've got no disagreement with that. The real surprise there is that he, himself, noticed!
But apparently that isn't what he meant even thought that is what he said. As with all things Obama, we have to have it re-spun and reinterpreted to insure that we have it all possible ways. Take a look here and be sure to watch the video:

And, just so you know what we are talking about regarding cool we've got this picture. Does this look presidential? Aren't you proud to be an American under this sort of dignity?
