Obama Plays Cool Hand Luke

The movie Cool Hand Luke may provides one of the best metaphors for Obama’s pathology, and his current feverish attempts at selling DeathCare to America. His speech to Congress reminded me of what the Captain of Road Prison 36 said to the new prisoners:

You run one time, you got yourself a set of chains. You run twice you got yourself two sets. You ain't gonna need no third set, 'cause you gonna get your mind right.”

If that is not a great reference to ObamaCare, then I just don’t know what is. Hopefully we are able to get Obama’s mind right?

Obama reminds me of the main character Luke Jackson played by Paul Newman. Luke is a rebel bringing “hope and change” to the prison chain gang. Luke, like Obama, just doesn’t know when to give up, like when Luke wrankles the prison’s toughest inmate, Dragline, portrayed by George Kennedy.

The two inmates battle it out in the prison yard, in what is not much of a fight. Dragline beats the crap out of Luke, knocking him down repeatedly. Read more here...

Off topic. But you were great on Beck's show today. Made me so proud to be one of your fans.

It was an excellent surprise to see you on one of my daily fix'es and I must say that it's good to see you get around.
Keep up the excellent work and you will get noticed for the right reasons.

"What we've got here is... a failure to communicate."

Besides the usual blah, blah, blah, I also heard yet more lies, lies, lies (and a well placed "you lie!") in his near hour long speech.

Of course the Communist News Network did some polling (spinning) and said that 2 out of 3 Americans changed their minds after listening.

The only problem is that 45 percent of those polled were Democrats and the other 18 percent were Republicans.

They may pass some version of this monstrosity sooner or later, but Republicans would do well to let the Democrats own this disaster if it does.

I caught the tail end of of you on Beck tonight. Please post a link to the entire video if you have it. I hope your book sales sky rocket!

Keep fighting the good fight,

Kevin, great job on Beck's show, but on your piece "Obama Plays Cool Hand Luke", you are assuming that Obama HAS a mind.

Mary said...

Oh no! I didn't know you were on Beck. I'll have to check for video.
Great blog, as always. :)

Here's another kudo on your Beck appearance. Do we need to send Fox a suggestion? Dude, you seriously need your own show.

Damn Kevin, where to begin?

Sent you a note a bit ago.

Anyway, watched UFC1 with my buddy the pimp & a bunch of ex cons. I was the only German/Danish libertarian in the room.

The stories I could tell you about my own journey from young socialist (gave it up in 5th grade), to young Republican (gave it up after Regan), though wanting to be a part of the multi-cult scene to occasionally amused & cynical indepent would have you lauging your ass off (or in some cases not).

Very happy to have stumbled on another brother in arms. Keep up the humor & lucid thought Kevin.

I'd bet $100 bucks you are a huge fan of Fedor Emelianenko too, btw.

Cause you're just the type that is drawn to the guy.

Peas be upon your house brother :)

Jace said...

Kevin! I Saw you on Glen Beck last night, helping to deliver the truth. Keep fighting the good fight! Jace

Tama said...

Saw you on Becks show.

I will pray for you. Graves are turning from what you have sold out to. Many graves, of many great men.

Karma is a B. You create it. It finds you.

shamballa said...

Just a heads up folks...

Most of the comments are being made and replied to here:

I think I recall Kevin mentioning it awhile back.

@CZ - Thanks! Glad to have your support!

The Black Sphere said...

@4ican - I am happy to have your support!

The Black Sphere said...

@shamballa - I agree that Communist News did nothing but spin the lies. Thankfully we have other ways to get the truth told!

The Black Sphere said...

@The Six - I agree, as I would LOVE a Fox show. We are working on it!

The Black Sphere said...

@eric - I am a big Fedor fan, as you guessed. Thanks for checking me out!
