Happy Inauguration Day, fellow Americans!
In Soviet Ratchet, robot transform you!
This came from a conversation with my fiancee. We were talking about how Ratchet’s magnets aren’t exactly show accurate, and she said they looked kind of like sickles. Then I noticed how his helmet looks like an ushanka with the flaps folded down.
After that, this repaint was inevitable.
No, I am not a communist. I just thought this would make for a fun post in celebration of Socialist Super President’s first day in office.
Yes, that was sarcasm. Barrack Obama will always be known to me as that. It’s not that I’m entirely against the guy, he’s certainly charismatic. And honestly, it’ll be nice not to hear people pissing and moaning about George W. Bush. (Seriously, as much as people made Bush their scapegoat for all that’s ill in the world, Super President is the reverse scapegoat.)
But the guy is from Chicago politics, and as a proud resident of Illinois, I harbor some resentment to our urban neighbor to the north- the state of Chicago.
What do you mean, ‘it’s not a separate state?’ Bah!
(Often times I wonder if people from rural California think the same way about, well, most of California.)
Regardless, Chicago politics is not exactly renowned for being on the up and up (as several recent governors won’t tell you), and that’s where Super President got his start. I’m not going to blame him much for that, but it does raise an eyebrow. Nothing wrong with being suspicious when it comes to someone put into a place of power.
Then there’s that whole socialism thing.
Still, idealistically and appearance wise, he seems a charismatic ray of hope.
Lets hope that’s the case, and that it’s not just that his shit is more shiny than it should be.
I’m not really into politics, but it’s hard not to comment a bit when the presidential elections roll around. I’m a Libertarian, I suppose. I distrust most politicians, like guns, and am fairly anti-social. I realize that congress is more responsible than the president for any problems with the country, and that alot of wide eyed rabble rousers (and even some of the often snooty douche bag psuedo-intellectuals) really do mean well…
What was it Penn Jillette said? “Saving the world is sexy.”
Regardless, I’m not so into politics that I want to make a cohesive argument on here, so I’ll stop the ramble there and go to something that hopefully we can all agree on.
Barrack Obama is black. Woo.
Seriously, that’s cool. I discriminate on important things (like whether a person is rude, or a dumbass), but not so much on race or gender. I recognize the difference, and with the history behind it I can honestly ‘Good for you!’ on the historical precedent of a black president.
But I hate things like affirmative action, being politically correct about anything, and the fact that people keep going on and on about how Barrack is black.
Not to be an ass, but he’s half white, you know. That is some epic lulz, but does it counterbalance the annoyance?
I really want him to say, “That’s great everybody! But now I’ve got a job to do, and I’d like you to judge me on how well I do, and take that example to your every day lives.” Fruits of his labor, and all that. That would be AWESOME.
But he won’t. He’s got the best pr situation he could hope for, coming in as the Super President, setting milestones and cleaning up the mess of the guy before him.
I don’t blame him, though.
But Montel Williams? Oh, you better believe I’d like to shove those ‘Barrack Obama Commemorative Coins’ up his ass.
So, lets see. Today I’ve offended politcally correct people, Barrack Obama fans, people from Chicago, people who live in the city (even if you didn’t realize it), the naacp, Montel Williams, people who hate politics mentioned on a non-political blog, and Penn Gillette for just being mentioned on this blog.
The rest of you probably like me even better, though. :D
See you later in the week for decidedly non-political but possibly more offensive transformer related goodness!
