Another Freudian Slip

You don't have to be Sigmund Freud to grasp the psychiatric pathology of liberals pushing through a candidate with an alarmingly anti-American background and a name like Barack Hussein Obama — not with stories like this in the news:

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's last name is spelled "Osama" on some 300 absentee ballots mailed out this week to voters in Rensselaer County [New York] hilltowns.
Is it a Freudian slip, intentional gaffe or a mistake? Voters are sure to have opinions, and one politician pointed out that the letters "s" and "b" are not exactly keyboard neighbors.

Both Democrats and Republicans dismiss the incident as a simple mistake. But the mistake gets made so often, particularly by Obama's own supporters, that it could serve as a textbook example of a Freudian slip.

Given his history of associating with known terrorists, Obama would never pass the required background checks if he wanted a job emptying wastebaskets at the White House. Yet he is about to be handed the nuclear codes. This is because it gives liberals a thrill to vote for a guy who represents "the other" — or to put it less diplomatically, the enemy. The only thing that would satisfy them more would be voting for Osama bin Laden himself.

Freudian slips can cut both ways.

I've found several types of Obama voters.
1)Libtards. Young invigorated, semi-educated, fervant white males (and some women) who love O'Vacant as if Obie was some sort of music celebrity. These idiots feel empowered, and have NO CLUE about the real world.
2)The forevermore entrenched liberal power structure. Unions, Trial lawyers, gays, students, Teachers and others that believe any democrat in office is more lucrative for them.
3)Died in the wool, hard core, Socialist/Marxist/Hippie retreads, and the cottage industry-Birkenstock-hemp culture that they founded. Former Peace-niks-greenies-and other twisted fools.

I still get to be Vice President, right?

This happened in Rensselaer county. Would that be where RPI is, a college whose primary focus is engineering students? And do 19 out of 20 engineers vote Republican? And are engineering students rather well-known for this sort of prank? I rather doubt that this was an honest mistake. Whoever did it, I applaud their audacity, because this was no accident.
