Update II: We received this picture from a friend (taken with a phone camera so the quality is not great).
The store is Time Machine located at 207 West 14th Street in New York City for those in the area that want to take a look.
The sign says:
Obama Comics Special Sale
Price – Job Performance Poll Number
Today’s discount: 54% off
The discount tag is apparently replaceable. If Obama’s approval numbers keep dropping we expect the comics will soon be close to free.
Update: Music video added below.
Some top Republicans and many regular Republicans are acting like free love Hippies lately. This Republican activity comes even as Barack Obama trys to benefit himself by calling Republicans “robots”. [Warning, video below is of Obama at his usual annoying speechifying.]
Obama thinks he can benefit himself by calling regular Democrats “an opinionated bunch”. It’s a fancy way of saying “shut up”.
Obama also said Republicans “do what they are told” along with oh-so-hip robotic movements. ‘Shut Up and do as I say’ Obama says to Democrats and Dimocrats.
Here at Big Pink we have learned when Obama is moving his lips, he is lying. Are Republicans currently “doing what they are told”? Are Republicans currently “robots”? Hardly. If anything, it is Democrats and Dimocrats who are “doing what they are told” and following Mess-iah.
Some of the most prominent names in national Republican Party politics are lining up against the GOP nominee in a key upstate New York House special election, the latest being former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who weighed in Friday.
In endorsing Conservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman in the Nov. 3 contest, Santorum joined former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann, former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson, and former presidential candidate Steve Forbes, all of whom announced their backing for the conservative third-party candidate this week.
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty suggested Friday that he might be the next well-known Republican to break with the party establishment and support Hoffman.
Who’s the robot now? Big Pink readers will recall our laughter when Obama Dimocrats (these fools were outraged when Joe Wilson correctly called Obama a liar while Obama was speechifying) sent hundreds of thousands, then over a million dollars, to a Blue Dog Democrat after spending months attacking Blue Dog Democrats. We wrote:
Dimocrats have been whining and moaning lately about Blue Dog Democrats. Instead of placing the responsibility on Barack Obama, for the disaster which is the health care insurance company rescue scam and the deals Obama has made with the pharmaceutical companies, Dimocrats avert their vision and their few morals in order to blame Blue Dog Democrats. Immediately though, these dumb-ass (is there another word for such stupidity?) Dimocrats cheer and fist-bump themselves because they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars – for a Blue Dog Democrat! These are truly stupid people.
Who’s the robot now? Here’s more on what Republicans are up to:
While Scozzafava can point to many other prominent conservatives who support her bid—including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Republican leaders on Capitol Hill—this week’s surge of leading conservatives to Hoffman’s camp is a troubling sign for her campaign and the national GOP establishment since several of the recent Hoffman endorsers have significant followings and represent the most energetic part of the Republican base.
“I would prefer to not have to go up to New York to endorse and campaign for the conservative candidate. But Republicans lost the race when they nominated Dede,” Armey told POLITICO.
“It’s the first really great chance for small government conservatives to present themselves as attractive candidates in opposition to Obama,” he said. “We treat this is as an important opportunity for conservatives to win the race. We wish Republicans had picked a conservative.”
Asked why Palin, Thompson and the others joined him this week in endorsing Hoffman, Armey responded: “They see the need for us to make the point that policy positions of small government conservatives are what is needed for us to win this race. They understand how important this race is and that’s why I think they endorsed.”
Republican strategist Mary Matalin added that Hoffman’s endorsers “speak for all of us who came to the party in support of the fundamental/constitutional principles it represented.”
“We can disagree or compromise on marginal issues, but not freedom-quashing, government-grasping ones, like tax increases, anti-democratic card check, etc. Holding on to a seat won on those principles is worse than losing it,” she said. “Conversely, losing seats to articulate, conservative Democrats has proved to be the best defensive line holding back Obama’s expansive ambitions.”
In her endorsement of Hoffman Thursday night, Palin sounded a clear anti-party tone, writing that Hoffman was the candidate that “stands for the principles that all Republicans should share.”
“Political parties must stand for something. When Republicans were in the wilderness in the late 1970s, Ronald Reagan knew that the doctrine of ‘blurring the lines’ between parties was not an appropriate way to win elections,” Palin wrote in a statement on her Facebook page. “Republicans and conservatives around the country are sending an important message to the Republican establishment in their outstanding grassroots support for Doug Hoffman: no more politics as usual.”
Obama Dimocrats threw out all core Democratic principles, the core Democratic principles Hillary Clinton has fought for all her life, to gift the nomination to an unqualified, race-baiting, and gay-bashing, and woman hating, Barack Obama. Now these same lemming Dimocrats blame everyone except the blameworthy Obama for the lack of Hope and Change.
As pro-choice, pro-gay rights Democrats we oppose Republicans, but, we applaud the Republicans who will not allow their party to be turned over to someone who does not represent their values. These rebellious, unRobotic Republicans fight for core Republican principles (and contrary to the propaganda, real Republicans, not the Bush W. worshipers, actually do have core Republican principles) and will not sacrifice those core principles in order to win an election.
Hillary supporters like those at Big Pink did not sacrifice core Democratic principles at the alter of party unity. We wish Hillary and Bill had refused to have anything to do with Barack Obama after he was gifted the nomination and they were called racists. We understand however that if Hillary and Bill are ever to return the party to its senses they have to be loyal to the party or risk future attacks of “disloyalty”.
Grassroots Democrats have no need to vote for Dimocrats who violate core Democratic principles, such as respect for the will of grassroots Democrats to choose their nominee, not have the party establishment belittle us and call us “bitter” and “clingy” and force feed an Obamination on us.
Now Republicans in upstate New York, like Hillary Democrats, are doing the right thing.
The conservative star power rallying behind Hoffman has done more than generate buzz for his candidacy—his campaign reported raking in more than $100,000 in the 24 hours since Palin’s endorsement. [snip]
In defending his endorsement of Scozzafava to the National Review, Gingrich warned conservatives that “if you seek to be a perfect minority, you’ll remain a minority.” [snip]
One top Republican official in Washington said that many within the party’s establishment are worried by the support Hoffman has been able to attract, but don’t believe it’s indicative of any broader party fissures.
“It is a little surprising. [Scozzafava is] not the person I would have nominated, but she is still the party’s nominee,” said the insider.
In past years, when the nomination process was determined by voters, not party leaders, it was proper for Democrats (and Republicans) to fight the fight in the primaries and then come together when the people spoke and the nominee was chosen. As long as the nominee is not someone who is so unqualified that a vote demands putting party over country, the appropriate process is for party members to support party nominees fairly chosen who will do well for the country and the party.
In the 23rd district this year, many Republicans do not believe the Republican nominee represents their core Republican values. The Republican in that very Republican district is a pro-choice, pro-gay rights Republican so these rebel, non-robotic Republicans are correct in their opposition.
Rebel, principled, non-robotic Republicans in the 23rd congressional district of New York are teaching a valuable lesson to their party leaders and to the Republican grassroots.
More importantly the rebel, principled, non-robotic Republicans in the 23rd congressional district of New York are teaching a valuable lesson to the robotic, compliant, prostrate, unprincipled Obama-worshiping kooks who style themselves as “the creative class” Dimocratic Left.
The lesson is: stick by your principles.
Long ago Shakespeare said the same thing “This above all: to thine own self be true. And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou cans’t not be false to any man ” Or woman.
