From Lucianne.com:
“Read before you eat. This MSM [tongue bath] but it will be hard to beat.”

-Obama: Washington's Man About Town-
ABC News, by KAREN TRAVERS

[Snip] “...a half-smoke with Mayor Adrian Fenty…”

(I guess the gushing Travers didn’t read this article.)
-Smoking No Longer Très Chic in France - New York Times-
--------------
Like a thug from Chicago might not be Très Chic? The fakery perpetuated by the media will not stop until they are dead, dead. What is that about ‘A stake through the heart’ again?

During the election, the Lame Stream Media even slimed Laura Bush as a ‘Closet Smoker’ on rumors, naturally. Not much said that Barry was a chain smoker, and even smoked crack, by his own admission. Now we have he takes a “half-smoke” as if that is cool. Jeez, what next?

A liberal TV newsreader said obama cannot smoke in the public parts of the White House, but can in his private area. I don’t think he should smoke anywhere on our property. The thought of him hanging outside the door smoking is non-regal to say the least. His residence belongs to us. Besides, what about secondhand smoke for those kids? Where are the radicals when you need them?

Don’t you get it? Laws are for commoners, sort of like the new guy not paying his taxes.

I like that [tongue bath] description. That is new to me, but I must say it works when the biased media is involved.

People with good judgment, don't smoke.

The character bar is set low for presidential candidates from now on. Clinton cheated on his wife, obama hung out with thugs, and doesn’t have to submit certification documents. The media did not do their job, they did not. I couldn’t care less if they went out of business today. The harm they have done is sickening to many honest Americans. Let the dishonest people prop up their lying rags.

OK, so someone explain to me please what will probably happen to employees if McClatchy has to file for bankruptcy protection - which seems likely in '09. A serious analysis please not just general rambling about how we're all screwed - I get that feeling already. Does the gov. take control? Would they close down some papers altogether or just do more layoffs or what?

McClatchy Watch said...

Anonymous 11:38 -- presumably most MNI newspapers would keep printing in the short term, just like the Star-Tribune is still printing after declaring bankruptcy earlier this month.

The immediate result would be MNI wouldn't have to make its debt payments to give itself time to get back on its feet.

McClatchy would have to make drastic cuts... who knows what form that would take?... I suspect MNI would shut down some of the smaller papers and make every effort to save the "name papers" like the News & Observer, the Charlotte Observer, the Bees in California, and some others.

A completely stupid reporter relates obama’s chic ‘smoking’ outings in DC, no mention of the disruption to businesses, and the ill-use of the secret service. My, how times ‘Change’-
President Bush was faulted for disrupting church services, not the crazies for the protest.

Re: Keeping your job
The rumor is at the KC Star, if you are putting-out, the publisher won't fire you.

Question 1: Is smoking the reason Obama's lips appear to have a bluish tint? (Poor circulation?)
Question 2: Does he smoke Turkish Tobacco?

Question, can Barry smoke on Air Force 1?

The dishonest ADN screamed for the medical reports of Gov. Palin, her pap smears for cripes sakes. Did they ask for obama’s lung x-rays? They knew he chained smoked. This past election was one of the biggest frauds of all time.
Blue lips can be a sign of a lack of oxygen. The ears are a sign of Dumbo envy.

A half-smoke is a kind of food particular to Washington, D.C. It's a cross between a hot dog and a sausage.

It has nothing to do with tobacco.

Does he smoke Turkish Tobacco? He smoked crack at one time. He could be blackmailed by a former drug dealer if you think about. When I remember that Dan Blather thought that President Bush missed a physical thirty years ago, and that was big news. This election, No One questions a crack and blow habit? Sick, the people of the USA have what they deserve at this point, but Barry did not win in a landslide, or mandate, as PMS Palousy likes to say.

When you write a story about a smoker, you better make sure your words are not misleading. I would guess 90% of the readers know obama smokes, but not about DC street sausages.
A woman is our office says she needs a half-smoke, and it means a quicky break on company time.

The thought of obama smoking in the White House makes me ill. You never get that smell out of the carpets and drapes. Never!

Anonymous said...

I have a friend who also says she needs a half-smoke , meaning a quick cigarette. I never heard her say that about a sandwich.

To half-smoke means a weak 100mm cigarette. That has been around for years.

"Barack Obama arrived at the fast-food joint with D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty shortly before 1 p.m. He posed with diners and staff, then returned to the counter to collect his order: a chili half-smoke and sweet tea, plus cheese fries and water for the mayor. They dined together at a two-person table."

You people are idiots.

So what does BO's smoking habit say about his proposed health reform plan...free lung transplants? Bring back Raleigh Coupons then you can redeem them to pay for med bills...or how about Marlboro points for chemo treatments. So now we have more than one BUTT in the white house! Maybe he'll drop a lit butt and catch the whole place on fire! Now THAT would be real news!!!
