Look, it’s Obama’s approval ratings over time! Right right right, whatever, who cares, etc. We just wanted to share Marc Ambinder’s full analysis of this: “This: well — it’s been a month of sausage making, and as we learned in July, when the sausage is in the oven, Obama can’t escape the taint of partisanship that Americans seem to be rebelling against.” That’s disgusting, Marc, whatever you wrote.

    In reality this just measures the effects of the national ADHD.

    I gotcher sausage RY CHEER, Mr. “you can’t be a real Murrakin with a name like” Ambinder.

  • SayItWithWookies

    He’s got sausage taint in his inbox? He could get a bad case of Pastramorrhea like that. If left untreated, that goes from brat to wurst.

  • Extemporanus

    When the sausage is in the Seventh Oven
    And Obama aligns with taint
    Then penis will guide the president
    And lust will steer the staff

    This is the dawning of the Age of Assqueerius!

    Who the fuck puts sausages in the oven? THIS IS NOT HOW SAUSAGES ARE COOKED, PEOPLE. Metaphor fail.

    And exactly who are the people “rebelling against partisanship”? Tea partiers? Oh, *that’s* not partisan.

  • V572625694

    Amurrcans aren’t rebelling against the “taint of partisanship,” whatever the fuck that might be. They (those rebels, those gun nuts, those billboard renters) are rebelling against the idea of having a person of the colored persuasion being in the White House. It jess aint rite!

  • AxmxZ

    Geez, Marc, if you’re going to write RPS fic about hot sausages pushing against Obama’s taint, at least put a NSFW warning tag on it…

  • Patty Dumpling

    Injecting the meat of change into the natural casing of congress requires a patient, steady hand. That patience is then rewarded with a plump, turgid weiner.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=463979]Patty Dumpling[/re]: Marc’s use of a colon after the word “This” was a subtle allusion to both the casing you mention, as well as to the grisled assholes with which it is packed.

    That graphic is making me sad. Turn it the other way.

  • Oldskool

    Poor guy must not own a tv. Nora O’Donnell just explained Barry lags behind Ford, Clinton and Reagan in the race to below 50%. Better luck next time, sucka.

    Here’s a famous sausage quote (it’s also my screen saver marquee)

    “Do not become a sausage made of many things which are useless, and do not become a guide on behalf of your blind ignorance.” — The Teaching of Silvanus, 88:17-21, Nag Hammadi Codex VII.

    [re=463990]hockeymom[/re]: Perhaps the visual equivalent of Marc’s piece will help cheer you up.

  • Extemporanus

    [re=463994]Pithaughn[/re]: I found that message in a fortune kielbasa once.

  • Aflac Shrugged

    How big is it, you say? My sausage…baby, it’s a whole damn month long. *unzip* *thump*

    They say the presidency will shrink your sausage. Surely you’ve seen the before and after pictures of Lincoln.

  • Potater

    Hurray! Now Obama’s finally a normal President!

    Took long enough.

  • DangerousLiberal

    Obama’s approval ratings, in the first year of his first term, are lower than on inauguration day? No shit?

    I predict that Ambister’s gonna get at least a B+ in Poli Sci 101 this term. For extra credit, maybe he can develop a new and improved theory of why Lieberman is King Douche.

  • Min

    A sausage in the oven? Does that mean the bun got lonely?

  • Aflac Shrugged

    [re=464038]Extemporanus[/re]: It galls Republicans that Barry probably wouldn’t have to train in order to perform cock pushups. (Bill Clinton could probably spin like a top on his, and core an apple immediately afterwards, but still.)

  • Extemporanus

    [re=464112]Aflac Shrugged[/re]: One is all you need.

  • the problem child

    That’s what Obama gets for being all cocky.


    [re=463990]hockeymom[/re]: That is just his daily intake of Newport Menthol’s…

    He’s is slowin’ down some…hasn’t been on the teevee in days.

    Proof that this is a nation of idiot white wingnuts.

  • plowman

    Maybe a good ol’ soft-shoe routine would help perk up his approval ratings, you know, remind everyone he’s a nice colored man with good intentions and no designs on our teenage daughters… And, hey, he’s ahead of Jimmy Carter at the same point in his fantabulous single term!

  • Paul Tardy

    50% for, 50% against; which 50% are the legions part of? -unnamed Roman emperor.

  • plowman

    [re=464275]Super Muslim[/re]: Did you feel the same when W. had about a 21% approval rating?
