  •  Wow, is it just me? (5+ / 0-)

    But I feel kind of the way I did when it was discovered that Sarah Palin had written a prompt on her hand to use during a speech, or when the President and his wife engaged in an on-camera "terrorist" fist bump.

    There are incredibly serious problems facing society right now, ones that demand all the energy, passion, and concern we can muster.

    I have seen, so far, 2-3 diaries on Brewer thrusting her finger in Obama's face.

    Can't we discuss something real?

      the ubiquitous pootie-woozle diaries that aren't even tangentially related to politics. People just like to gush and LOL over their Lady Fluffball in ANY venue.

      But if you do protest, be ready for major umbrage.

      •  Totally disingenuous comparison. (2+ / 0-)

        Infuriating, actually--worthy of the corporate media.

        The fluff in this venue about the finger-jab purports to be "real" news. The pootie diaries were never intended as other than diversion.

          the body of the diary or look into some of the comments from fellow Kossacks regarding Brewer's apparently known erratic behavior among locals, alcohol related or not, she may have some serious problems and may cause them as well.

          For you to dismiss this possibility without providing any contradictory evidence to the evidence being provided in support of the allegation(s) - again, alcohol related or not - makes you a needlessly dismissive member of this community.

          This person may have very real problems, and physically lashing out at the POTUS may be a sign of her inability to cope with not only her, but others problems.

          There is likely a much bigger disaster waiting to happen if they/we don't curb this behavior in the early stages.

      it is a good visual representation of Republicon disrespect for President Obama.

      Some of them refuse to show up for the SOTU.  Others listen politely while ridiculous lies about his heritage are repeated.  Then the R governor of a state wags her finger in his face like she is Miss Sinclair and he is refusing to obey her order to take a nap in kindergarten class.

      It's all of a piece and in my mind it is an important story.

    •  The racism this finger jabbing represents (0+ / 0-)

      is all too real, and it explains some of the resistance to Obama's policies.  Nothing wrong with shining the light on these cockroaches.
