According to Harry Reid, Obama is a Chilean Sea Bass

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/39717311...decision_2010/

I have heard it all now.....

The only hole Obama can relate to is on the golf course where he has spent most of his presidency swinging clubs.

Reid needs to get a grip and come down off of his high pedestal. To even compare what the Chilean Miners have gone through with the president is an outrage.

If only the miners had someone like Obama with them they wouldn't have spent two months on their lazy asses waiting to be rescued.

Absolutely. The Obama would have printed a HUGE pile of money and used it as a ladder to climb out of the mine, I mean, hole.

I think there is a comparison between one of the miners and Obama - the one with a wife and a mistress.

You mean the miner with a mistress was born in Kenya too?

In the dark, and out of touch?

This shows how much Reid is really out of touch. The old Pacific sea bass that's so hard to find now was much tastier.

His metaphor is beyond dumb. The miners didn't role up their sleaves and get themselves out. They patiently waited for others on the surface to rescue them.

Re: According to Harry Reid, Obama is a Chilean Sea Bass

I don't know about how patiently. Weren't there numerous fist fights down in the mine?

I believe there was a primary challenge against the incumbent lead miner.

Re: According to Harry Reid, Obama is a Chilean Sea Bass

There is no 'Chilean Sea Bass'. Due to overfishing of the oceans, what used to be undesired fish are now added to the menu as the preferred game fish are depleted.

It's actually the 'Patagonian Toothfish', but that doesn't look too good on the menu. No one is going to order 'that Toothfish thing, and leave the tooth in' at a restaurant. So they pulled the name 'Chilean Sea Bass' out of their ass because it sounded sophisticated and gourmet, and it worked.

You guessed it... the Patagonian Toothfish is now in trouble due to overfishing.

Re: According to Harry Reid, Obama is a Chilean Sea Bass

The only time I ever had Chilean Sea Bass in a restaurant, it tasted like someone HAD pulled it out of their ass. Never again.

And yeah, Obama reminds me a lot of a fish, the slippery bastard.

There's a long tradition of giving new, more appealing names to unfavorable or disgusting things in order to avoid the unpleasant associations (that's why they changed Karl Rove's name to "Turd Blossom.")
