Barack Obama is @#$% tired of this @#$%!

(Or, a NSFW plan to ram the stimulus bill home, told via downloadable mp3 ring tones.)
In his bestselling autobiography, Dreams From My Father, President Obama introduces us to his high school friend, “Ray,” who, like him, is bi-racial. Who, also like him, is casting about to find his place in the world. But, who, unlike him, has a potty mouth that would make a sailor blush.
Best of all? When reading the audiobook version of his bio, Obama does impressions of Ray’s manner of speech. Swear words and all. It’s fucking awesome. And it’s a way of talking we probably won’t be hearing from him now that he’s POTUS.
Or will we?
In case you haven’t heard, it’s becoming clearer by the day that Obama is losing the communication war, and ceding this stimulus battle to the GOP. (If that article doesn’t get the point across, read this one too.)
He’s starting to amp up the rhetoric. But it’s not enough.
It’s time to stop this mealy-mouthed stuff about bipartisanship altogether. It’s pointless. Those flat-earth neanderthals are just gonna throw it back in his face.
No, it’s time for Obama to lay it all out on the table.
Time to start talking tough.
What’s he got to be afraid of? Rush Limbaugh?
Fuck no! Say it loud!
So let’s roll up our sleeves and cut to the chase.
