Unless a massive asteroid strikes the Earth, or all known volcanoes erupt in a fiery conflagration, or the entire stockpile of nuclear weapons explodes – Americans will not be spared yet another Obama publicity stunt speech on September 9.
Lord, please have mercy. Unleash the asteroids.

Our nation is closer than ever to achieving health insurance reform that will lower costs, retain choice, improve quality and expand coverage. We are committed to reaching this goal.
We would like to invite you to address a Joint Session of the Congress on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 on health insurance reform.
As can be seen from the invitation, health care reform is now officially gone, to be replaced with health insurance reform. Obama had already signaled the shift from care to insurance in earlier Olympian pronouncements but now it is clear that Pelosi and Reid have accepted the shift as well.
“Care” has been euthanized. And increasingly it appears the “public option” has been euthanized as well. None of this comes as a surprise to readers of Big Pink who know universal health care died in Denver in August 2008.

What will Obama bore the nation with?
The content of Obama’s presentation is still being debated in the West Wing. Aides have discussed whether to stick to broad principles, or to send specific legislative language to Capitol Hill. Some hybrid is likely, the officials said.
It would be better to just send the TelePrompter and leave Barack Obama on vacation after vacation. With a TelePrompter only address Americans will not be subjected to the additional pain of having to see Obama.
No such luck however as a TelePrompter only speech. Next week Barack Obama will stage yet another series of publicity stunts. It will be the same circus tent with the same circus show and the same Corrupt Chicago Circus Clown fooling the same circus rubes.
The evidence has mounted to the size of the Grand Tetons – Obama serves the same corrupt national interests he served in Chicago. Only fools will believe whatever it is that Obama says at next week’s publicity stunt.
We would watch next week if something of interest would happen. If Obama was at all merciful he would forgo his usual circus act and entertain America. He could juggle, make jokes about how ungrateful Michelle Obama is, or even show some more of Obama’s Wee Wee. It’s the least he could do, the very least.
Obama could talk about the latest gossip about Oprah to get ratings. But if Obama really wants to have a ratings grabber he would talk about Levi Johnston. Levi Johnston is the “sex on a stick” beefcake man/boy who managed the oh-so-difficult task of fathering a child. The man/boy lucked out in that the mother of his child is herself a child of former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Now Levi Johnston is threatening to bare all in Playgirl magazine not realizing the readership is primarily gay men.
Many will mock the clownish man/boy from Alaska. But here at Big Pink we’ll give Levi his due. At least Levi will show America what he’s got.
Obama will continue to hide from America what he is not – an experienced leader of core Democratic principles who is willing to fight for Americans.
