Still Obsessed With Obama's Youth and Repulsed by "U-G-L-Y" McCain

Henry, the political prognosticator who never fails to be wrong, is now predicting that "Obama will win the Democrat nomination." What he formerly thought "inevitable, the nomination of Hillary Clinton by the Democrats, now seems unlikely." In other words, Henry is wrong now in order to be right later. Having already been wrong twice about who would win the Republican presidential nomination, he now stands the chance of being wrong a second time about the Democratic nominee as well. How a pundit who has been wrong so consistently about everything can continue to opine on a subject about which he has already proven himself to be wholly ignorant is the real triumph of hope over experience. No "expert" on any subject, not even a self-proclaimed one or erstwhile prodigy of 5, having been completely wrong time and time again and thoroughly discredited, would continue to burden the patience of his readers unless becoming a public joke were his goal.

Henry's infatuation with Obama is not news. We have commented on it several times here. In English public schools it's known as a "crush," part hero-worship and part eroticized attraction. Someone thus infatuated is known there as a "fag" — that's how the word entered the common parlance, though the "crush" need not be sexual in practice (though it often is).

Henry seems obsessed with Obama's youth, or, rather, his youthful appearance (he's ten years older than Henry) and believes that it will suffice to defeat McCain because he is old and "U-G-L-Y." He is not the only one of this opinion. In a new low even for him, Fantomas, Henry's new nemesis, attributes McCain's "ugliness" to his "war wounds." (The beatings which McCain sustained at the hands of Cuban torturers at the Hanoi Hilton left his face slightly asymmetrical and prevent him from raising his arms above his chest). Contemptible as is fantomas for even saying this, he is less contemptible than Henry who merely implies it and is too smart or craven to avow what he really means. I hope we still live in an America where wounds or disfigurements sustained in her defense are still regarded as badges of honor and not bar sinisters. It would signal the utter debasement of this country if its obsession with youth and physical beauty were carried to such an extreme that it would trump honor, courage and sacrifice.

If you are a woman or a gay guy — a shallow woman or shallow gay guy — maybe the contest will be decided along those lines. However, I do not think that Henry's Theory that the youngest and most attractive candidate (or anyway the least U-G-L-Y or disfigured) always wins will hold for the generation population.

Henry is also trumpetting Obama's oratorical skills in addition to his physical attractions. Since his words are hollow and non-committal on most subjects, as, indeed, has been his entire political career, it is his appearance and style of delivery, then, that captivates Henry: the image not the substance. So, then, we are back to square one — Henry likes the cut of Obama's gib.

what Kind of answer is that Manuel?

In regards to this post i will use the same words you use .. Apply it to yourself

I have copied your comment because I am sure that upon further reflection you will erase it if you have one ounce of shame left in you.

CorgiGuy said...

MAT, your post is beneath you. I'm out of here.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

corgiguy:

I'll tell you what is beneath me: to contribute in any way to the election of Barack Obama.

Fantomas said...

Cogy please dont go. pronto muy pronto Mat se quedara solito

solo el y yo ...que aburrido

fijate como vana, fariñas y demas se han quedado on the sidelines this time around... unable to encarar al hipocrita Tallachea a man without honor, without one once of shame and integrity

Veo que que acerca el fin de este blog. bastante duro y bastante daño le hizo a la blogosfera cubana y los amigos de Miami

Vana said...

A man without humor? Manuel is one of the most humorous men I know, also a man of integrity, a man I admire and respect, a man of honor, words I cannot use to describe you fantomas, how dare you come into his home and insult him thus, honestly I don't know why Manuel gives you a forum to spew your hate, all that comes out of your mouth fanto is shit.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

Next month RCAB will mark its one-year anniversary. During that time I have seen Miami's Cuban Connection, Stuck on the Palmetto, and "Klotz" as in "Blood," all blogs with which I was at one time connected, run their course and die. I have no doubt that this blog will also outlive Babalú, especially now that it has embarked on a ruinous campaign that will lead to its destruction.

As for you, fantomas, I expect you always to be around: you are a fungal infection for which there is no cure.

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

Vana:

Thank-you for your kind words. They are, of course, wasted on fantomas, though I appreciate them greatly.

Vana said...

Manuel:

No need to thank me, that is trully how I feel about you, though I have never personally met you, I consider you a friend, and you are right when you say words are wasted on fanto.

Fantomas said...

A man without humor?

dont be putting words in my muth dear Vana

I did not say humor whick he greatly lack of..

I meant honor as a man ..which he has noone y cualquierquier cosa que le pregunte a charlie bravo, he knows what Iam talking about

Manuel A.Tellechea said...

fantomas:

You used to be far more articulate. Now you speak only in sentence fragments. What has happened to you? Perhaps removing your teeth could help restore your equilibrium.

Vana said...

I wish I knew what you are talking about fanto, I must commend Charlie if he understands you, because I don't

Agustin Farinas said...

Manuel,
please do your readers a favor and send all of Fantoma's comments straight to the Madhouse. Some of us are tired of reading his debasing and foulmouthed comments on your blog. There he can read his own garbage and wallow in it just like the swines do.

Charlie Bravo said...

Hey Fantomas, now that you try to put me in the bed you made for yourself with your comments, I have a few words for you. I told you that Manuel will not out you in public. Has he? Is that honor or not?
Now, he used the comments you wrote yourself in his blog. He didn't put words in your mouth, or used any words by others and put them in your mouth. Your comment was unfortunate, as I wrote to you, and I copied Manuel because I thought that my comment should be shared between us, because you wrote that in his comment thread. Did you see any of the contents of my letter in his article?
That's called honoring his word, he didn't use my words, or our private words.

Fantomas said...

No charlie What I am saying is that after I publicly apolozized for my ill advise comments about mac cain in this blog , several hours later this morning he had another new post in which he continued blasting me in regards of those comments..intead of keeping his mouth shut after my apology he continued..his attacks
Charlie sorry bro you are way Wrong Manuel is not a man of his word... You got that wrong bro, please modify your assertion

Fantomas said...

Fariñas in this blog freedom of speech is welcome..you dont have to read my comments..pasale por arriba muchacho ni los mires

I seldom read yours

Agustin Farinas said...

Enrique aka Fantomas,
you sir, are a person beneath comtempt. You have been called a bootlicker by the folks at Babalu, and rightly so, and there must be a strong reason for that moniker.
You even claim that I visit your blog, and that is a bold face lie. I would not waste my time reading your asinine ramblings and stupidities, because I have more important things to do with my time.
Apropos, I hope when I visit Cuban Nostalgia in May of this year accompanied by my mother, I pary and hopr to run into your ugly mug, whereby I will deposit my strong fist on your ugly snout, that is, if I can beat my mother to the punch. After reading your insulting, uncouth, and filthy comments to her, she is anxious to run into you. I will ask her at least to tie a hand behind her back to make the fight even.
I am 65 years old, so would have an even chance. I doubt very mcuh if you would have the balls to stand up to either one of us. You are an uncouth lickspittle who deserves a good punch in the nose from someone to bring you back to earth and teach you some decent manners and education. Your languange betrays the poor education your parents forgot to give you. The word "Scumbag" is too good a word to describe you. Someone who goes around with a comdom on his head obviously is not very well in the head. But then, that is something all of us who have had the disgust to know you, and have read your disjointed ramblings have known for quite sometime.

Fantomas said...

Fariñas I will be in Nostalgia , all 3 days see you there pal

Agustin Farinas said...

Comdon head,
make sure to wear your comdom on your head so we can know you.

Agustin Farinas said...

Comdom head,
my mother has threatened to insert her umbrella so far up you digestive system canal, she might poke your left eye out. Beware of the little lady with the white hair and a red umbrella. And bring plenty of vaseline just in case it might hurt. She does not take very well to stupid idiots with comdoms on their heads and heaping insults and profanity on her person. Wouldn't that be a sight? You running around the grounds of Cuban Nostalgia being chased by an 85 year old white haired lady pummeling your ugly mug, and all the time you have an umbrella sticking out of your anus!

Fantomas said...

A tu madre la invitare a un mojito cubano que hacen alli , riquisimo. Yo te quiero a ti, personalmente tu veras como arreglamos nuestras diferencias rapidito. Te meto en mi bolsillo en 5 segundos de haberte conocido. Apunta eso

Acabo de comprar el pasaje Mayo 7 Nostalgia

Agustin Farinas said...

Comdom head,
What a shame I cannot reciprocate the mojito for your mother, since you obviosuly "no tienes madre".
Your comment on Babalu under te moniker of "Abajo Fidel" where yo say that "fortunately Obama would be the next President" leaves us no doubt where your head and only brain cell is located: on your ass! I may add, that is a good place for it.
