A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Sunday Soliloquy: Chicago and the Etymology of “Bottom Bitch” January 31, 2010

On a bitter cold winter day like today, it may be plausible to offer excuses for not visiting Chicago.  However if there are very important gubernatorial and senate races going on, especially a race in which the best supporters during your presidential campaign are candidates.

One would think that President Barack Obama could at least make an appearance in the Windy City rather than cast absentee ballots for his 2008 presidential campaign vote whores. Quinn, Blago, Giannoulias…these guys worked the streets hard for pimp daddy Barry O.

When he became president, many Chicagoans believed it was highly probable that Obama would follow in the steps of his predecessor George W. Bush by  visiting his hometown often.  No such luck.

A year into his presidency, there is little presence of Obama in Chicago beyond faded HOPE posters and his empty home  in the Hyde Park neighborhood guarded by several police cars.

From this article in the Chicago Tribune

It hasn’t exactly been sweet home Chicago in Obama’s first year

By Bob Secter

January 18, 2010

…Chicagoans may fancy themselves an unsentimental, nose-to-the-grindstone lot, but folks in Obama’s adoptive hometown indulged in a wave of parochial euphoria with his election. The huge, election night rally in Grant Park was electric with possibilities, not the least of which was the notion that Chicago would be transformed into the nation’s unofficial second capital and reap a big payoff in both stature and dollars.

Even the typically measured Obama appeared to get carried away when he told the Tribune that he hoped to return home every couple of months and considered the South Side his “Kennebunkport,” an allusion to the Maine family compound of President George H.W. Bush.

In hindsight, there was wishful thinking all around. As the nation marks the anniversary of the first Chicago president’s

  • Obama’s political magic hasn’t kept the state from suffering through a recession like everybody else, and the state and city governments are drowning in red ink.
  • Chicago’s high-profile bid for the 2016 Olympics went down in flames despite Obama’s personal intervention.
  • To some, the scandal-marred transfer of Obama’s U.S. Senate seat to Roland Burris may be the most lopsided Chicago trade since Lou Brock for Ernie Broglio.
  • It’s not that presidents can’t have a palpable impact on their home bases.

Springfield has built a thriving tourist industry around Abraham Lincoln. Tiny Crawford, Texas, got a huge economic shot in the arm whenever President George W. Bush showed up at his Prairie Chapel Ranch for a lengthy stay with an entourage of aides, security personnel, media and onlookers.

Hmmm, sure doesn't look like Chicago to me.

But Chicago is a far cry from Crawford; Plains, Ga., ( Jimmy Carter); or even Little Rock, Ark., ( Bill Clinton). Sizing up what it means for a modern president to hail from an already bustling commercial and cultural center is a more challenging task.

“At the very least, it will become part of the keepsake box of the city, like having Oprah in town or being home to the 1893 World’s Fair,” said Chris Mooney, a political scientist at the University of Illinois’ Springfield campus. “Every big city needs to be noticed now and then. Even if you’re already the prom queen, it’s nice to be complimented.”

Chris Mooney has it wrong. Chicago is not a prom queen at Obama’s ball.   It is a bottom bitch- nothing more, nothing less.

Others are beginning to see that this great city, which brought forth our nation’s first African American president is nothing more than one of Barack Obama’s “bottom bitches”.  Pimped out and left behind.

What is a ” bottom bitch” you may ask?  Why does Afrocity continue to use this seemingly derogatory term?

I can just feel the feminist  blogosphere (no pun intended) tense up.

What is wrong with Afrocity?  She knows that we never say “bitch”.   But this is reality and I did say the “B-word”, particularly the “double B-term” –bottom bitch.

Several years ago I first heard of a bottom bitch while watching the 2005 movie Hustle and Flow featuring actor Terrence Howard as “Djay”.  Djay was a pimp desperately striving to make something of himself by laughing a successful hit wrap song while keeping his hoes in line.  In one memorable scene Djay refers to one of his best hoes as a bottom bitch after she comes through for him during a frustrating moment when she presents him with a lava lamp to brighten his recording space.

Although the Youtube clip leaves out the bottom bitch term, I wanted you to actually see the scene to in order to create context and mood.  Here is Djay’s exact quote:

“That’s a bottom bitch for you. I mean, we got everything we need right here. And all this stuff in this… this little-bitty space, man, it just looks so much bigger now. I’m here trying to squeeze a dollar out of a dime, and I ain’t even got a cent, man.”

I was actually embarrassed at my reaction to the term.  I was almost touched when Djay uttered those words.  A bottom bitch is someone you can count on the most. Your main bitch.  He or she brings home the goods no matter what you do or say to her.  This is your main hoe who works the streets for you day and night.

Bottom bitches come in all shapes, sizes and botox enhanced forms. In this photo, it is really hard to tell who excatly the bottom bitch is.

For another take on bottom bitches, I  also will let the nice kids of South Park explain that for you. In one episode Butters decides to become a pimp and takes a bottom bitch:

Again,  here we see as with the Hustle and Flow definition,  that a bottom bitch is the Rock of Gibraltar when it comes to your hoes.

However, that does not necessarily translate into a mutually beneficial relationship for the bottom bitch.  Chicago more than any other piece of politically expedient ass in Barack Obama’s life is learning the downside when it comes to being bestowed the coveted presidential bottom bitch title.

Continuing from the Tribune article:

If anything qualifies as Obama-inspired local pork, it could be the administration’s decision to buy the empty Thomson prison in northwestern Illinois as a holding tank for terror suspects now detained at Guantanamo Bay. Obama was likely aware of the prison’s availability because he was a member of the Illinois Senate in 2002 when state officials, in a cost-cutting move, decided not to open the just completed facility.

Wow Obama!!! Thanks for those Gitmo detainees Barry! You sure know how to show the folks back in your home state some love.

In short, Chicago and the State Of Illinois, is still in the state of pre-hope and post-change.

Black on black crime is still a general trend in the city since Obama’s election.  Scandalous cell phone videos of youths beating each other to death and failure to secure the 2016 Olympics, did nothing for the image of Chicago.  Images of Michelle Obama in he red and black Narcisso Rodriguez election night dress are eclipsed by the blood of Derrion Albert’s beating last September.   The premise of Obama’s hope and change message has somehow escaped the boundaries of Chicago.  The process has somehow been retarded by a collective feeling of hopelessness and despair.

Obama has forgotten about his Windy City  bottom bitch as he is  circling the globe making the rounds of with his lesser  geographic hoes.  Feeling up the electoral vote abundant tits and ass of Ohio and Pennsylvania.  Dining in France.  Ipod trading in Great Britain. Bowing to and fro and golfing under the Hawaiian sun.

Chicago got the shaft.

The second President Bush was famous for his long, extended trips to Crawford, but Obama in his first year has been to Scandinavia (two trips to Copenhagen, one to Oslo) as often as Chicago.

Shortly after the inauguration last January, the Obama family returned to their Kenwood home for a long Valentine’s weekend. The family hasn’t been back since, though the president returned to Chicago in June to speak at a medical conference and in July for a political fundraiser. On neither occasion did he stay the night.


To be sure, there is an upside in Chicago to having Obama stay away. Presidential motorcades often create monumental traffic tie-ups. The security cordon around the Obama home for that Valentine’s weekend visit extended for a three-block radius.

Jack Cella, general manager of the Seminary Co-op Bookstores around the University of Chicago campus where Obama once taught law, said that for much of last year, the neighborhood was crawling with reporters from around the world, as well as tourists and curiosity seekers. That activity has slowed in the winter months, and it’s not clear if it will resume with warmer weather.

Not long ago, it was common to see the Obamas wandering the neighborhood, but residents are by no means put out about them now staying away, Cella said.

“We’ve still got as much enthusiasm as ever,” he said. “There is still real admiration and affection for the first family. It would be nice to see him, but people realize he’s got an awful lot to [do].”

Of course he won’t stay the night silly Chicago.  You are a bottom bitch. Was he ever home when he was the senator from Illinois?  No, he played you.   Obama will see you again in 2011, when he needs you and you will still be there waiting for him with open arms and legs raising the dead so they can re-elect him.  Stop checking. There is no text message for you today. May as well go back to dusting those Barry bobble heads and using those CHICAGO 2016 poster to keep the fireplace going until your pager blows up.

Congratulations Chicago. You are now an etymological inspirator of bottom bitches to come.

Tweety Alert: Who Ever Knew Obama Was Black ? January 28, 2010

I wanted to quickly post this You Tube video of Chris Matthews commenting on Obama’s State of the Union address last night. I do not know what is more creep, his words or seeing Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow in split screen with him. It was just too much.

 

Holy Fake Greek Temple Empire!!!: From Moonbat Man to Mr. Freeze January 27, 2010

Well my dear readers, we have survived a year of President Barack Obama. There were bad times and there were …bad times. Still, we have made it.  Things are looking up for conservatives actually.

I believe and tonight’s State of the Union speech will set the tone for Democrats and Republicans alike.

A year ago, the election of Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate as Ted Kennedy’s successor would have seemed unimaginable.  The liberals seemed poised to take over the political throne and dominate for at least eight years.  With, Democratic control of the both the house and senate, the Republicans were written off as the dead “party of NO”.   Beaten down by the party of “yes we can”.

I could see why voters would think that we were gone. We looked pretty insignificant.  Sarah Palin was sent packing back to Alaska with a complimetary world globe and a pre paid postage box from the RNC for those  clothes.  Meanwhile Michelle Obama sported her $500 Lanvin tennis shoes.  Nope, no hypocrisy there.

Our president wined and dined on Kobe steaks and BoBo got organic puppy chow as unemployment rates sky rocketed well beyond the 8% he promised us.

Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, underwear bombers, Fort Hood, and Gitmo detainees all filled the holiday stockings of racists behaving stupidly.

Now fast-forward to 2010 and it appears that the Greek temples of yes we can year, are somewhere off in the distance along with everything Barack Obama promised.

Republicans gave Democrats a you-should-have-known-better head shake.  They dilemma they face gets little sympathy from me.  On one level, what the hell were you guys thinking? On another level…what the hell were you guys thinking?

Obama now acknowledging  that he may be in trouble (though he will never admit it), clearly is now reverting to his  tofu mode of being whatever the people want him to be.  That is what you get when you buy an empty suit. You can fill it with whatever you want.  You want a far left ideologue, by golly you got it. You want him to slide to the right, he will do that too.

You want a tough on spending president gosh darn-it  Kool Aid drinking kids. BAM! BIFF!!! ZOWIE!!! Your wish is Obama’s command.  Whatever you wish for children, you can have it all and tonight we will see those Greek temples transform from the far left moonbat cave to spending freeze icicle palace and all

Will the Pink Vote Give Obama the Pink Slip In 2012? January 25, 2010

As conservatives hope against hope that gay marriage is never passed in their respective states of residence, Barack Obama, who won the “pink vote”  during the 2008 presidential election has done no better than a vegetable stricken with bystander effect when it comes to supporting gay rights.

Understandably, many gay voters deplore President Obama’s slow rate of progress in establishing gay rights and equality, particularly in the arenas of marriage and the military.

As early as February 2010, U.S.  Secretary of Defense Robert Gates and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen will testify at a congressional hearing on the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”  policy concerning gays serving openly in the military.

Don’t Ask Don ‘t Tell, challenges conservatives to come to terms with their idea of a strong military.  Who should and should not serve? Should gays and lesbians in the military  be allowed to speak out about their personal lives?  Can they marry on base like straight soldiers?

Currently, many gays have been discharged from service who were excellent soldiers and offered valuable skills such as weapons or language capabilities which should under “normal” circumstance render them indispensable.

Despite President Obama pledging to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,  the pink vote has noticed his annoying tendency to waffle as he has done with so many  other campaign promises  he made to liberals.

From this article in the Wall Street Journal:

Ask Obama About Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Gay voters are growing impatient for equality.

JANUARY 24, 2010

By RICHARD SOCARIDES

Current law does not require the services to discharge members based on sexual orientation per se. Rather, it looks to certain conduct to create a presumption for discharge. Thus, the Department of Defense has the authority to devise regulations that determine when such prohibited conduct has occurred. Defense could also interpret the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell statute more literally (as intended) and refuse to discharge a service member unless he willfully discloses that he is gay, which almost never happens. Finally, Defense could invoke current regulations to retain gay service members in the interest of national security. All are good options.

What is especially troubling, however, is Mr. Obama’s oversensitivity to a dwindling minority of bigots on this issue. Hundreds of military careers have been destroyed on his watch for no valid reason. The country has been deprived of the talents of these service members and has wasted millions of dollars on their training.

Many wonder when their president will show the same kind of concern for the constitutional rights of gay American service members as he has for enemy combatants held at Guantanamo Bay. Many wonder what the administration’s willingness to treat gay Americans as second-class citizens says to Uganda and other countries that are considering laws that would subject gays to imprisonment and even death.

Gay Americans have been among the president’s most ardent supporters. Their enthusiasm, and that of their families and friends, could be crucial in this year’s elections. The president’s action—or inaction—on Don’t Ask Don’t Tell will be noticed.

An increasingly frustrated bloc of gay voters—angry over marriage setbacks in California, Maine, New Jersey and New York and emboldened by Ted Olson’s and David Boies’s high-profile effort to declare unconstitutional laws that prohibit gay marriage—are growing impatient for equality. As Mr. Olson said in federal district court in San Francisco recently, discriminatory laws serve only to “label gay and lesbian persons as different, inferior, unequal and disfavored.”

Afrocity wonders, who exactly is this “minority of bigots” the WSJ opinion piece is referring to?

Minority…Hmmm. That is an interesting choice of words.

From San Francisco Gay Pride Week

We all know that there is a perception gap between Obama supporters and supporters of gay rights.  African Americans have been rather consistent in their lack of open armed embrace for the gay community.  An African America vote for Obama does not not necessarily translate into a pink vote. While the gay culture within the black community as been somewhat acknowledged with the advent of “Black Gay Pride Week” and an increase in openly gay black celebrities such as Wanda Sykes, the black gay movement still seems wholly autonomous.    There is cultural tension between African Americans, gays, and religion.   I believe this is the reason for Obama’s waffling on gay rights.  The black church ain’t having that and Obama knows it. To appease one group means offending another.  As progressive as Barack Obama professes to be, he still owes much of his election to African Americans who do not support gay rights.  This dilemma will continue to haunt the pink vote which has become the battered stepchild of the Obama administration.  Like the anti-war moonbats  such as Code Pink, Obama has slept with you, now it is time for gays and lesbians to put on their clothes and take the walk of shame bus back home.  I promise that Obama is very much so ever “into you”.  He will call you in oh, say 2011.

While I am not an actively involved in supporting gay rights, I am not opposed to gay marriage.  I just find it interesting that Republican moderates and conservatives divide over whether we should support gay rights out of fear of the Obama presidency pushing pro-gay legislation through, when in reality there is not much pushing from the left.  Where is the big fight for gays from Barack Obama?



I did not hear anything about fighting for gays during Obama’s speech in Ohio last week.

Still, don’t look for the pink vote to be back on the market anytime soon…And don’t look for Obama to mention one iota about gays or lesbians during his State of the Union address on hump day.

Afrocity Presents- Friday Late Night Fright Fest: Liberals From Outer Space January 22, 2010

Oh, how I love curling up on Friday nights with a big bowl of popcorn and my favorite horror films.

When it comes to politics, you never know what pork eating ghosts and tax cheat goblins are lurking about. Vampire moonbats, liberal creatures from outer space where no one can hear you scream.


There is not much to say about this recent short clip of MSNBC’s Keith Olberman, yes chief god of planet Moonbat, calling the Tea Party activists  “poor dumb manipulated bastards” on Thursday night’s Countdown.

Poor Keith, with the news of lower than bottom feeder tank fish ratings  and the Scott Brown win, this week has been awfully hard on the “Beaver”.

Meanwhile at KoolAid Space Mountain sector Ohio,  Major Barry, is back on Main Street whining to town hall attendees about right wingers who want to “scare the bugeezus out of you”.   He claims that the White House is “confining”  and  “It is not about me”.

Oh Barry, don’t be so modest. It has always been about YOU.

Finally we end our Friday night fright fest with the subject of the fiendish Dr. Arlen Specter (D-PA)

Dr. Spector of RINO-DINO colony

…instructing Michelle Bachman (R-MN) on the way he expects his bitches to act in his commanding presence.


Shiver!!!  Sorry liberals, after tonight’s viewings, I must sleep with the lights on and my thermostat at 72 degrees.
