“SEO is using deodorant instead of washing. SEO is masking bad coffee with sugar. SEO is cramming instead of studying. SEO is using pain killers instead of going to the dentist. SEO is taking weight loss pills instead of exercising. SEO is a comb-over. SEO is Scientology. SEO is Paris Hilton. SEO is the Zune. SEO is the morning-after pill. SEO is astroturf. SEO is not the real thing. SEO is cutting corners. SEO is not the solution. SEO is bullshit.”—
“This one is pretty easy. It was Malia, my 10-year-old daughter’s birthday party. We were in Montana. And you know, she’s a Fourth of July baby. So often times, during this campaign, we’d be traveling during birthdays. And so we were in this small hotel, I think a Holiday Inn. And we had this big public thing. The staff organized for a smaller family party. And we were in this nondescript conference room—with—Malia and Sasha, Michelle, me, my sister, my brother-in-law and my niece. And there was a cake. And there was some food which wasn’t, you know, stellar. And the staff had put together an iPod of all of her favorite music. The Jonas Brothers and Beyoncé. And we spent the evening just dancing. And we were all dancing to their favorite songs. And they were laughing because, you know, obviously their daddy is dancing ridiculous. And Malia came up and said, “This is the best birthday I’ve ever had.” And she meant it. And—and I looked at her and I realized—you know, that she was growing up. And that she was wise, turning out to be somebody who would say that to her dad even if she didn’t mean it, just to make me feel good. And yeah, it chokes me up right now talking about it. Yeah, my kids get to me every time.”—Barack Obama, on the last time he cried. Video at this source.
Why won’t you show me a status update in my dashboard when people unfollow me? I’m terribly curious why I was unfollowed by five fellow tumblrers today, which is a lot in one day for someone like me who doesn’t have a huge following. Was it the quote?
They’re deactivating accounts that have lain dormant for awhile.
I got a sense it wasn’t so much a racist comment, as it was a comment about the masses idolizing Obama and not being able to think for themselves, ala Jonestown. Yeah, this is what it’s come down to. Don’t drink the Kool-aid, kids.
"Sarah’s the one," said one leading conservative who is convinced Mr McCain will lose this election. "The party is broken and only she can fix it. We need someone who comes from outside Washington and relates to the aspirations of ordinary Americans."
