VEEP = ‘bleh’

Here on FlyWithBats, I report and comment on the news that catches my attention, things that genuinely interest me and make me say “Wow, I gotta tell somebody about this”, which is how the idea for the Gotham News section of this site came about….the Pastor that cut up his wife and had her in the freezer since 2004 made me say “Wow, I’ve got to tell somebody about this” as did Kiefer Sutherland’s attempt at becoming an R&B singer…but one of my most notorious Christopher Wallace sized interests of all time came in the form of watching Barack Obama aka the Mighty Morphin Super Nigga’s rise to prominence.

From the time he entered his ‘goofy’ name into the race, to everyone realizing at the same time that he was black and not Israeli, to that sexy ass Obama girl basically becoming the first pebble to Mt. Obama’s Olympus aka The Barack Phenomenon, to the underlining mating ritual that was this years Primary Runoff with Hillary (we know there’s a sex tape, we know), to the Barack Obama/Hillary/Mccain media orgy that transpired once the Republicans chose Moses Jr. to be their nominee, all the way to the day Barack finally scored one for the history books, our “political Messiah” had riden the democratic donkey all the way to the Democratic nomination…

Bill ‘O Reilly was thrilled, Rush Limbaugh watched Roots in his honor and Bill Clinton got the domestic beating of his life from Hillary, hell…the entire black community was acting as if we finally got our reparations, Barack had become our 40 Acres and a democratic mule…

…yes, all this to say..it’s been powerful….

Hell it was powerful enough to make me successfully cross over to the dark side (politics) and honestly, it was mainly because it seemed like America was finally ready to find some light in the darkness. Through Obama’s quest to find that change that may or may not be under the cushions of Uncle Sam’s couch, I actually became inspired….whether the change is in the couch is another story though…

…now it’s time to become President, and the one thing on everybody’s minds was…DREAM TICKET…

:”What? wouldn’t it be historic? wouldn’t it be inspiring for all the the little white boys and little white girls and little black boys and little black girls that Martin Luther King was talking to for the Mighty Morphin Super Nigga and the White Queen of the Lassies to come together as President and Vice President? Huh? Wouldn’t it? They could both ‘answer’ the call’ at 3am…and guess who would be ringing? Guess who?  FREEDOM mafucka…that’s who…FREEDOM”

I wasn’t for Barack picking Hillary because while I will always commend her spirit, yes I rather a ‘bitch’ be my president over a ‘ho’, and Hillary was indeed ‘the bitch among hos’ that could’ve definitely led effeciently…but alot of her actions made me question her character too many times…it was like to her Barack was a tampon,instead of a worthy adversary…so much of this translated into too much race related fungus and disrespectful sillyness to that point if I were Barack dealing with it all I would’ve viewed her as too much of a egotistical headache than a running mate…definitely good for publicity and good for inspiration but I really had doubts that these two could work together…

…It’d be like taking a shit on yourself and then having the shit (and her pissy husband) co-running the country with you (yes, not #2)…your entire term as President would have to be done with a shitty booty, because any attempt to clean your ass would be counted as an assassination attempt…

….not to call Hillary a piece of feces mind you I’m just saying that we’re tired of having a White House in the toilet…it’s time for some new shit…

“It’s time for change”—Barack Obama

Change:  1) To convert or alter  2) low denomination of money   3) New Shit

I was ready for the change, open for the change…my people have been feeling homeless in America for so long that we’re living for change…so I just knew that whoever Barack chose as Vice President, it would really be a statement and shakeup the norm just enough, not too too much, but just enough…

We let Barack slide with not saying much of anything about the Jena 6, for dodging the Sean Bell question, for both accepting and rejecting his Hip-Hop support, we even let him turn on his pastor, usually a big no-no in the black community but the greater good (as racist as the statement is) was seeing this black man in the white house….these were my feelings, my thoughts on the matter, I’m not one of those obliviously blind supporters of the guy, I know he’s a politician, but there’s always been an intangible about him that just seemed….different, for a change…

SIDE BAR:

By letting a man’s color define him, you’re ignoring his true character, and characters run the world, not colors…believe it or not. BLACK COMMUNITY START LOOKING AT THE MAN!

END SIDE BAR:

…and then, in the amount of time it takes for Mccain to slut his wife out for some biker bar votes and a Raisin Bran endorsement, my entire interest in this race had become Craig Mack’s career…why? Because, he lost something….and I didn’t know what it was, until he picked his “Veep”…

<<< Joe Biden

Now before I get to good ol’ Joe, I need to make a public service announcement…

*PAUSE*

KILL VEEP

“Veep” is one of the silliest words to here a person say with a serious face, especially on television. “Veep”… I can’t believe that we’re getting that lazy and stoned that saying “VP” has become such a chore for the tongue that we’ve given a nickname to a nickname. I want you, the reader to do me a favor and say the word “Veep” word out loud and tell me that it doesn’t sound like you’re censoring a curse worse. I’ve heard the term for awhile and it has always rubbed me as if it were some political ebonics talk.  The same people that try and shit on the black culture and hip-hop for how we “butcher the english language” are up here on my screen telling me that Rogaine’s newest spokeperson is Barack Obama’s “veep”…That’s unVEEPINbelievable, and they can kiss my veep if they get mad at this bullveep…

*END PSA*

Joe Biden…

My first thoughts?….

What the hell is a Joe Biden? 

And then Mccain reminded me where I’ve heard the name before…

Then Wikipedia told me about how he’s busted ass for years in the senate, being one of the longest reigning Senators in the House and Delaware’s longest Senator ever…he was the fifth youngest senator in U.S. history and failed at becoming President back in the 70s…

…(sleeping)….

You can check CNN out for his list of McCain-like credentials….honestly by going to CNN.com and Yahoo Politics all you’re going to see is Obama/Biden stuff, so I’m not about to get super indepth on the issue, I’m just highlighting the most obvious question that’s been coming up for the pass coupla days, ever since this Biden guy was chosen… How (in the fuck) can Barack talk about CHANGE, about being different and separating himself from the politics of old, debate with Hillary about ushering in her and/or Mccain would be ushering in the same old same old, then turn right around and choose McCain-Lite to be his Robin…

: I just…just don’t get it….

I’m completely missing how bringing in a guy that’s been in the white house longer than anybody else is a sign of change…

HOW?

I can at least see how it would make more sense for Hillary to be the VP over Biden, I mean shit, Biden couldn’t even make it pass the first round, people weren’t feelin him, he had to drop out, at least Hillary almost won the damn thing…So what if something happened to Barack and Biden had to take over, people would go nuts….why? Because they didn’t want him to be President in the 70s, in the 80s or now…if he were to become President, it’s like a welcome back to the politics of old, which would trump why we voted for Barack in the first place….I guess Barack must feel like his swag has blinding powers, and that if he cosigns somebody we’re just going to rock with it, but this pick is just…odd and off…I guess those jabs that the Clinton’s were taking, hit harder than we think…

I could give a damn Biden’s about credentials and his “great” personal story…I want an answer to that question, it’s the one that everyone is harping on, and I usually don’t follow the crowd…but it’s a glaring question…HOW IS THIS A CHANGE? I’m even watching FOX NEWS (lol) as I write this and they are making many great points…yes great points on how this choice is basically a political move, a safe move, one to get the racist people’s votes by having a classic oldie cosign the remix that Barack’s run would represent…

And in searching for the answer to this confusion is when it the answer hit me….that thing that I feel Barack has been missing lately for me…that thing that I feel that he’s lost…

…his confidence…

Confidence is the crab legs to life’s gumbo recipe….at first Barack came and smashed on the game, pistols up ready to go…he was the underdog, nobody knew him, nobody respected him yet, he was the back of the toothpaste tube, only getting attention when there’s nothing else to do but take a Hillary…and in all of this he fought and fought, he swagged and swagged, he mouthpieced the entire country, seduced us all with this message of change to say screw the politics of old…it’s starting all all feel like “blah blah blah” because once he gets close to the seat he picks the enemy….and Biden may be a super cool old guy don’t get me wrong, BUT Barack created the enemy through is speeches…

the enemy is anybody that represents the old rape that Washington has been for decades, right? nobody likes rape…so by defining this to be the enemy is basically how he won us over.  We know that half the time that he’s talking he’s barely touching any specific basis on HOW he’s going to pull half of his plans off, we know that he’s just as inexperienced as Bush, Mccain, Hillary, Bill and BIDEN have said he is…but we let it all go and slide because we’ve been so ready for change, so ready for something different that we put our trust into a….politician…

…a politician….a politician….you gotta keep saying it, because Barack’s a tricky mafucka….his kind demeanor, swag, inspirational speeches AND SKIN TONE (don’t be in denial) will have you thinkin that you’re really supporting a true agent of change…when really, he’s just a politician….and to rise in prominence the way he has in the political field, he had to have screwed SOMEBODY over…it’s just the nature of the job….and in accepting that, I’m hoping that it isn’t us that’s getting the shaft.

No, I’m not giving up or turning on Obama….I’m still all for my dude to get in office and REPRESENT, afterall sometimes in life you have to follow the status quo to eventually change it…but I’m not going to make a deal with the devil to get to heaven….ok, that may have been a bit too strong, but you get the point, and the WB Dramedy that this election season has become has me wondering what exactly will Obama be representing by the time he makes it in office, IF he wins…

IF he wins…..IF he wins…IF he wins…

This is the worry that got Joe Biden his position…whoever Barack chose, he knew that their baggage would stack onto his baggage and since Biden packs light, and uses the same luggage as McCain, it comes across as a win/win…Only thing he did wrong was steal an ex-President’s speech, it’s not like he cheated on his wife with an employee, getting the mistress pregnant and paying off another guy to take the fall for it, and raise your son so you won’t lose your seat in Congress…nah, it’s not like Biden did that…

With every little thing he does being turned against him, I understand why the thought of playing it completely safe came to mind…After all, he’s viewed as being a radical (mostly because he’s black, because he doesn’t do or say anything more radical than any other democrat), so yes, I get it…but why play it THAT safe? Why undermine everything that you seemingly stood for in one pick…I can damn near guarantee that every Republican in America’s dick jumped as soon as Barack said: JOE BIDEN

: Oh yes, we got em now….somebody call Colin Powell’s veepin ass, we may have a job for the veepin darkie!

Before, Barack seemed like he had the confidence to push his message, surf through the waves of doubt and munch up the political piranhas with chips to spare…and though I always felt like no change could come until a second term, I believed it was coming… Now, I’m not so sure, this move is too…predictable

Predictable: 1) Safe  2) Boring  3) Pussy-like

…and pussies conform…

It seems that hes let the media machine that don’t see him as the “Super Mule of a Majority” but the “Ultra Ass of a Minority” get in his head, he let the bloggers get in his head, the analyists, the advisors, the pets…they’ve been shooting at him and shooting at him and shooting at him…at first he was viewed as too soft, he said something then he was radical, he wasn’t seen with an American flag pinned onto him and he was then seen as a terrorist, he pinned one on and he was seen as a conformist…hell, he could kiss a damn baby and they’d say it as an UnAmerican…with all of this I guess Meteor Man had to eventually crack, he is human after all….

Sure Biden is probably gonna be just as kick ass as a VP as he’s been as a Senior Senator…but it’s all become “bleh”….of course he’s going to kick ass, half the ass he’s kicking will probably be his old friends who he’s probably working with anyway…this is NOT change, it just comes across as more debt….

Hopefully with the enemy in our corner, it will propel Barack into where he needs to be….but this judgment  (more so than any of the other crap we’ve overlooked) makes me wonder about what else he’s going to backtrack on in order to ‘fit in’?

…I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that, hopefully there isn’t one…

Meanwhile, check out what has to be the angriest Hillary supporter ever:

AYO HILLARY!

: Yes?

: ……

Once again, this is just my $0.02 towards life’s $0.98

-BATS, the ACE among kings…
