Zombied Madison Students Cheer Obomber-Proof That Colleges Are A Joke

Madison's reputation as a truth-seeking institution free from outside bias is now officially pronounced DEAD.
I've hung out in Madison in the 60's so don't tell me I don't know the town. The sight of some 25,000 students crammed together like sheep, waiting to pass through a metal detector on a line a mile long so they too can relive Madison's former campaign exhiliration as their fearless leader once again begs for their idealistic energy. Problem is, all Obama has anymore is some sort of tired Elmer Gantry schtick, coming on like a hyped-up Baptist preacher with his scripted political bullshit. Shame on the University for hosting such a blatantly one-sided political event during a campaign. These students are living proof that Madison's rep as a leading intellectual light is nothing but history these days. They didn't have Bruce Springsteen this time around, just Ben Harper, who obviously never saw "Lose Change" or "Why We Fight". It sems the Democratic Machine in Madison has suceeded in lobotomizing the student body quite thoroughly. The symbolism of standing in a mile long detector line says it all. This on the very day it's revealed that Obama wants to tap all of your Facebook and Twitter and Skype accounts any 'ol time he feels lke it. My take is that he's not really campaigning. The parties agreed a few years back to let Obama be President for one term in return for him throwing the race in 2012 and alowing the GOP to return to power with a complete police state. Obama is just setting the stage for this coup d'etat of the mind. Isn't there any more anti-war feeling in Madison? Obama is directly in charge of the bloodshed in Afghanistan. He is MR. DRONE-GUY for all of history. He has allowed the CIA to continue this insanity no holds barred. Maybe we should bring back the draft. Then all you celebrity addicted, star-struck media victims might gain some real perspective on your hero. To Obama, 911 Truth is a "Vile Conspiracy Theory". Obama has a lot of style but zero convictions- he is a true puppet. So Ben Harper can fill in for the Boss if he wants, but it's still a dog and pony show. Yeah- if you want to have permanent wars bring back the draft. Enlist Obama's kids first, then college students. Don't think it can't happen again. And if it does it's YOUR FAULT for cheering this warmongering impostor yet again. BAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!
