Ultimate arbiter of cool announces that Obama still is

by editor on June 24, 2011

David Axelrod is a rumbled, old political strategist with a wrinkled suit, a bad haircut, a silly moustache and cloud of cigarette smoke hanging over his head. He’s so far from cool that it’s a long distance call.

David Axelrod is (a) saying Barack Obama is A-OK or (b) his arthritis is acting up again

Nevertheless, Axelrod wants you to know that he knows what cool is. And in David Axelrod’s mind Barack Obama is the coolest of the cool. The hippest of the hip. The grooviest, baby.

Real Clear Politics reports Axelrod’s delusion:

”I find it as cool to be an Obama supporter. Having sat with him for two years is the White House and watched him — watching him work through some very difficult things with a lot of intelligence and grace, equilibrium. I, I have great admiration for him,” Obama’s chief campaign strategist told CNN.

“The people who were participating in the campaign in 2008 weren’t involved n some sort of cult of personality. It wasn’t just about Barack Obama, it was the country and they cared deeply about this country,” Axelrod said in his answer a question about how to make Obama “cool” again.

Well, there you have it. If someone as cool as David Axelrod says Obama is still cool, then cool he is.

In a Bay City Rollers kind of way.

If you have to tell people how “cool” or how “bad” you are…you’re not.

Yo’mama’s not saying how cool he is, David Axelrod’s doing it for him, I mean, after all, David is the King of Pimp!

Axelrod had to watch him to make sure the Presidential shoe laces were tied, the barn door was zipped up, and the teleprompter was plugged in. And, he moved the re-election HQ to Chicago where most of the local media are not watching.

Cool? What is cool? I mean, do we want Fonzie in the WH? Cool doesn’t make it with me. I’ll trade that any day for integrity, honesty, courageousness, morality, sensitivity, compassion.. none of which his coolness displays. Axelrod is a tool.

I wish David Axelrod would get a job picking up soap flakes in a prison shower. It wouldn’t do any damage to his street cred and I’d get a kick out of watching what happens when the water’s turned on and the other inmate’s are allowed to lather up!

Dressing smartly, reading the Teleprompter well, throwing showy White House parties and playing a good round of golf (with lots of mulligans) may be “cool” but it ain’t competent. Coolness is surface flash, an obsequious posse (or press) and lots of flatterers. We don’t need a “cool” President, we need a competent President…and, so far, I haven’t seen one.

That’s important how “cool” a dipshit like axlerod thinks obama is? It is I guess to the fools in Hollywood, they’re just court jesters anyway. When I’m on a job I could give sht how “cool” someone thinks they are, I want someone competent.

I totally needed this guy to tell me what’s cool. What’s with the porn moustache? I bet he thinks that a pet rock is totally cool.

Yeah, I’m sure Obama, like any other skilled practitioner of political theatre, is expert at LOOKING composed, gracious, intelligent, wise and caring… it’s just that it’s all an act. The reality, his actual decisions, SUCK. The man’s a clueless moron, a fool, a stupe, a dimwit. He probably couldn’t think his way out of a paper bag even in a pouring rain. But he would sure LOOK like he had the situation well in hand, all the while he was sitting in the damn bag getting wet.

I think even a mercenary jackass like Axelrod can understand the difference.

Great picture of Axlerod . . . he looks like he’s about to head out to the pool house and inform Thomas Magnum that he has over staid his welcome.

I didn’t vote for McCain because I thought he was cool. I voted for him because I hoped he might be a bit more competent than Obama. Turns out a Veg-O-Matic is more competent than Obama.

I Hate the Media bloggers make me laugh! “He’s so far from cool it’s a long distance call.” Priceless.

Oh, yeah, the man has his new 2012 gear available for order online now. Axelrod is probably NOT the guy they should have modeling the t-shirts.

I must pull the punch on this one. Any parent who raises a daughter with severe disabilities and still puts his shoes on in the morning gets a pass from me.

In that vein, I hope you are head – over- heels for Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman.

Good point. He gets attention from media on that score and he is even considered heroic. However Sarah Palin does not get to be considered heroic for not aborting a Down Syndrome baby. I am down with anyone who does their duty as per their children, I just think it should be the same throughout and it isnt.

Axelgrease has hooked his wagon to a failing star… Perhaps he ought to start dressing in a cheerleader outfit with B.O. on it…Never mind the mental picture just made me loose my vision..

It never ceases to amaze… The absolute continued hilarity. Was it Limbaugh who first suggested that politics is show biz for ugly people? This fundamental disconnect with reality that these idiots have is stunning.
Personally, I just don’t get it. His whole look says “douchebag”. Tremendous endorsement for Obama, a 52 year-old nerd thinks you’re the coolest!

Imagine my relief knowing Obama is still cool. I wish I could have a guy like Axelrod telling me I was cool during my mosdef not-cool high school daze.

Sorry Axelrod, but ‘cult of personality’ is what Barack is all about (He’s a rock star, dammit!).

As far as making him ‘cool’ again, I suggest a mondo piece of ice…the Mendenhall Glacier sounds like just the place for Captain Zero.
