Sting: In Many Ways, Obama's Sent From God
— Ace

To think I used to vote the same way as these backwater, bucktooted, inbred religious wackadoodles.

Sting isn't a religious man, but he says President Barack Obama might be a divine answer to the world's problems.

"In many ways, he's sent from God," he joked in an interview, "because the world's a mess."

...

"I can't think of any be better qualified because of his background, his education, particularly in regard to Islam," he said.

He also says those heretics who do not accept the divinity of Chocolate Jesus are "full of fear" and yay verily, they shall be smitten until they have been smoten:

"It's aggressive and violent and full of fear," he said of the backlash against Obama. "They don't want change, they want things to feel the same because they feel safe there."

Sting, 58, said he's hopeful that the world's problems can be dealt with, but is frustrated that "we seem to be living in a currency of medieval ideas."

"My hope is that we can start talking about real issues and not caring about whether God cares about your hemline or your color," he said. "We are here to evolve as one family, and we can't be separate anymore."

Is there anything good in any of this? Well, yeah. This jackass used to be considered pretty hot. But he's gone from Zenyetta Mondata to...

...Senor Zenyetta, your eighth grade Spanish teacher. The one with various court restrictions about being alone with students.

I am kind of "full of fear." I'm filled with the fear that somewhere on his decrepit person he carries a bag full of children's teeth.

So, he's admitting that Obama hasn't actually done anything yet, since we apparently aren't lashing back against his policies or actions?

And, yeah, that does scare the wee-wee out of me and other thinking people, because it's an obvious and undeniable failure, and, at it's full extent, it's the biggest killer in human history.

I dream of rain Him
I dream of Michelle's gardens in the White House sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time Chris Matthew's tingles run through my hand

I dream of Iranian nuclear fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse Obama, who will never tire
And in the flames
Her His shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

Obama's a this desert rose
Each of her his veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume teleprompter speech ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

33 OT from Fox: Fans are mourning a 19-year-old folk musician who died this week after being attacked by two coyotes in her native Canada.  Park officials killed one of the coyotes in question and sent its body for testing to try to determine what caused the animals to attack, the Los Angeles Times reported.  Music fans everywhere have mobbed the website coyotestogo.com in a bid to obtain folk-musician killing ravenous beasts of their own.

50 In all fairness, Sting has been consistently one of the biggest singer slash douchebags in music-- no small feat that-- so really for him not to lecture his obvious inferiors about his latest Really Big Insight would be something of a shock.  I mean, this is the star of Brimstone and Treacle forcrissakes.  Someone with enough integrity to both commit himself to the Amazon rainforests and perhaps the nuttiest groupy-wife on the planet has at least earned the right to speak while I ignore him.  After all, serious freakin' issues-- and giving jazz music the worst ass-raping since David Benoit-- are what Sting is all about.

71 Why doesn't he have sex with Obama and get it over with.  He needs to work through the infatuation and get to the part where he realizes just how bad Obama's farts stink.  Why does this washed up old singer think that his opinion counts anyway?  The only silver lining I see in the Obama administration is that someday his 'entertainment' czar will decide that the members of the entertainment industry need to have their salaries curtailed.  It will be interesting to see how their opinions change when Obama has them in a little town house and has eliminated jet flight, and has determined that he knows best where stars need to live (it's not fair to have them all in Hollywood) so some of them have been sent to live in cold, forsaken places, with their little electric cars, and their tiny little townhouses, and their empty little voices.  Sting- just go away.  And take Obama with you.

For that matter, I thought that Saddam and the Iranian mullahs were medieval thugs. And I never thought any dictator - not Castro, not Chavez, not the Chicoms - were anything except medievalist. Thanks for setting me straight, Sting.

My brother-in-law's next-door neighbor here in West El Paso was Willy Moya, the owner of the number one bars in Juarez - Ajuua's and Frida's - and Willy was killed last year when he was lured down there by his accountant and then shot to death when he refused to pay off some crooks.

150 Sting and his ditzy wife Trudie Styler are comedy gold. Back in May, even the Guardian called Styler out for being a hypocrite (another celebrity Gaia fan who owns 7 houses and jets all over the place to tell other people to live green and simple lives). Sting's wife was stung by the criticism and dug the hole even deeper by publishing a hilariously witless rebuttal. Styler pointed out her many good works: "Each year I fly thousands of miles to campaign for environmental change. It would have been inconceivable to raise tens of millions of pounds for the Rainforest Foundation – which protects the forests and their indigenous people and of which I was a joint founder 21 years ago – on horseback. It would have been similarly impracticable to have served as a global Unicef ambassador on a bicycle." http://tinyurl.com/oz5lz2 Read the comments for a good laugh. They are certainly the funniest comments ever to appear in a Guardian thread.

179 Ace,
When you said "To think I used to vote the same way" I am guessing you mean you used to vote democrat. That reminded me of when President Reagan was asked the usual "Do you have any regrets" question.  His answer was something like "Well,,, that I was ever a democrat." I am guessing you feel the same way.

Jesus wasn't white or black:  He was brown.

Can gifts from God be refused like human gifts can. If so, I refuse the Oama gift.

The problem here is that Gordon is betting on the wrong horse.  He wants to see the world become a saner place, but he's counting on the wrong man to make that happen.

Obama is not a Reagan.  He's not a Teddy Roosevelt.  He's a radical Marxist, a devotee of an evil ideology whose primary tenet is enslavement to the state.  I'm sure that if Gordon realized this, he wouldn't be backing the guy.
