Obama’s lead increasing in Texas, Ohio, and New Delhi February 26, 2008

Posted by skinbad in Politics, Travel.

If we’ve lost Tushar, we’ve lost the country.


This gives a good excuse to link one of the great videos of all the intertubes.

This may shock some, but I have no idea what the guy in Solla Solla is saying.

And those glasses make me think he’s blind.

His wardrobe makes me think he’s blind.

I had an Obama chick trolling my neighborhood on Sunday in the rain. I took her pamphlet and made nice.

4. Gov. J. LePetomaine - February 26, 2008

Well, that’s cause you’re nice KC.

Hard to dump on a kid tromping through the cold rain to talk up their guy/gal. They’re usually polite, and their passion is cute. You just want to give them a cookie and pat them on the head.

Dude, this was no “kid.” It was an old hippie woman. I could tell it was the first shower she’d had that week.

7. Dave in Texas - February 26, 2008

so, no cookie?

Most of my friends are gonna vote for Obama. It cracks me up.

9. Tushar D - February 26, 2008


the guy is singing in Tamil. I have no idea what he is saying either.

BTW, I don’t think the person who created the Obama video is a fan of Obama.

10. Tushar D - February 26, 2008

In my office, people are generally souring on Obama. Even those who voted for him in the primaries. The liberal NY Jewish people are taking a second look at his association with a Joo-hatin Church. People who have some basic arithmetic skills are wondering how Obama is planning to fund the 800 Billion+ of new spending.

Man oh man. I was supposed to pick up my friend at the airport over an hour ago, but her flight was seriously delayed. She’s not getting in for another 30-45 minutes. I wonder what happened.

Oh well, more time for me to play Eschalon: Book I.

12. daveintexas - February 26, 2008

You’re kinda new to this whole, flying thing, huh?

I keed. Pretty normal these days Mrs. Peel. Sad but true.

13. Mrs. Peel - February 26, 2008

Yeah, but this flight didn’t involve Chicago O’Hare, so that made it about 400% less likely to have a delay.

Anyway, according to the website, the plane is arriving, so I’d best get going. Auf Wiedersehen (Wiederlesen?).

14. Michael - February 26, 2008

“Wiedersehen” (literally, “again-see”) was correct.

15. geoff - February 26, 2008

“Auf Lederhosen” (literally, or at least phonetically, “off leather pantyhose”) was a close second.

16. Mrs. Peel - February 26, 2008

Michael, it was a joke. Auf Wiederhören is what you say on the telephone, because it means “to again-hear,” so auf Wiederlesen, “to again-read,” is presumably what you would say on the intertubes.

17. geoff - February 26, 2008

“Auf WiederWakker” (literally, “to turn off one’s weed whacker”) remains a strong candidate.

18. Muslihoon - February 27, 2008

Tush brings up a good point regarding the video. Considering the lyrics, it could be construed as being tongue-in-cheek. Or a commentary on Obama’s crush on Hillary. Viz:

Chori chori hum gori se pyar karenge
Thief-like thief-like we will love the fair woman
Like a thief I will love the fair/white women

Chupke chupke dil ki baaten yar karenge
Quietly, quietly the heart’s matters the friend will say
The friend will tell of the heart’s matters quietly

Aane wali kabh aayegi koi de bata
The (female) one who is coming, when is she coming someone tell
Please someone tell when she will arrive who is coming

Dhoond rahe hen jane kabh se hum uska pata
I have been finding, goodness knows since when, her address/location
I have been finding her address/location since I don’t know when

My loony bin is fine Benny Lava.

20. geoff - February 27, 2008

That and the “Come see me eat nipples, eat nipples” vid were two of the funniest things I’ve seen in some time.
