I was just indulging in a bit of reverie after reading the WorldNetDaily “story” about a 100-strong Obot army being directed from Pennsylvania Avenue. Wouldn’t it be fun to be in the birther’s fictional Obot army?
I mean, every morning you’d get the “message of the day,” the talking points to make combating birthers. You’d be on the “inside” and be part of the “team.” We could like have secret handshakes and make up code words. It would be a hoot.
And the money! Wow, with all those millions sitting around in Obama’s campaign war chest, think of the money! Maybe we could even have an Obot group health plan – or MAYBE we could even get that health plan that our members of Congress have.
Plus you don’t have to do all that demeaning and degrading stuff the birthers have to do, like lying and smearing people’s character. Obots just have to be friendly, know the facts, and point out the obvious – sort of like being a librarian!
Back in January of 2009 I tried writing some Obot fiction, an essay that met with deathly silence from the community here. I believe that to write good fiction, you have to first write out of yourself all the bad fiction. I haven’t gotten all the bad fiction out yet (probably never will). Nevertheless, my character, “kenny” is quite a bit like what the birthers might imagine a member of the Obot army to be.
Anyway, a fantasy about being an Obot political insider is fun for a moment, but not realistic.
