Scarlett comforts Barack

I have a feeling loose-lipped Scarlett has received her last email from Barack.

From the London Telegraph, June 11:

scarlett from people.jpg

The actress Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she has regular email contact with presidential hopeful Barack Obama in which she offers advice and consoles him after difficult debates.

The Hollywood starlet said she had been communicating with the Democratic candidate for months and was "amazed" that he always found the time to reply.

"You'd imagine that someone like the senator who is constantly travelling and constantly 'on' - how can he return these personal emails?" she told the Politico website....

She described how after a particularly tough debate earlier this year, she sent an email congratulating him for "holding his ground".

He responded that the questioning was "difficult" and he was being pounded on "one silly question after another."

I remember those silly questions! They came during the April 16, 2008 Democrat debate between Obama and Clinton. I'll post those quacky queries below, after this post. Moving on...

The blonde 23-year-old star... has made no secret of her deep admiration for the Democratic candidate.

In January she told reporters: "I am engaged to Barack Obama - My heart belongs to Barack."...

She gave him her public support with an appearance in a campaign music video that got ten million views in its first week online.

In the recent interview, she claimed that the first black presidential candidate is a fan of her work too and his favourite performance was her role in the Oscar winning Lost In Translation....

Johansson revealed that in-between acting jobs she was preparing to dedicate her time to campaigning for Mr Obama....

"What I want to do is raise awareness of Obama and his policies, and share my own story of how I became involved in his campaign. Perhaps, if they're a fan, my story might entice them to learn or spark their interest some other way.

"If I can answer questions or direct people to a website where they can get more information, that's how I can help."

Scarlett can raise awareness of Obama's policies? She'll be the first. Perhaps in her next email she can tell him, since he can't seem to get beyond "yes, we can!", what they are.

I take that back. Obama has established one policy: to be the most pro-abortion president in history. CNSNews.com reminded us today:

obama pp.jpg

Following a July 17, 2007 speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Obama was asked what he would do at the federal level, not only to ensure access to abortion but to make sure that the judicial nominees he might pick "are true to the core tenets of Roe v. Wade?"

"Well, the first thing I'd do as president is, is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," Obama said. "That's the first thing I'd do."

FOCA is wildly radical legislation that would overturn every single federal, state, and local pro-life law.

Raise that awareness, Scarlett.

I expect the emails between Johansson and Obama remained above-board. But I do think the continued exchange a tad creepy, particularly since Johansson obviously has a crush on Obama. Was Obama leading her on, feeding his male ego, or just being polite? Poor judgment, nonetheless. And his behavior certainly wasn't presidential, unless, of course, he was trying to emulate President Clinton.

Read transcript of the April 16, 2008, Democrat debate between Clinton and Obama here. Meanwhile, here are some of the "silly questions" reporters Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos asked Obama:

GIBSON: ... Senator Obama.... Talking to a closed-door fund-raiser in San Francisco 10 days ago, you got talking in California about small town Pennsylvanians who have had tough economic times in recent years. And you said they get bitter and they cling to guns or they cling to their religion or they cling to antipathy toward people who are not like them. You said you misspoke. You said you mangled what it was you wanted to say. But we've talked to a lot of voters. Do you understand that some people in this state find that patronizing and think that you said actually what you meant?

*****

GIBSON: Senator Obama, since you last debated, you made a significant speech in this building on the subject of race and your former pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. And you said subsequent to giving that speech that you never heard him say from the pulpit the kinds of things that so have offended people.

But more than a year ago, you rescinded the invitation to him to attend the event when you announced your candidacy. He was to give the invocation. And according to the reverend, I'm quoting him, you said to him: "You can get kind of rough in sermons. So, what we've decided is that it's best for you not to be out there in public." I'm quoting the reverend.

But what did you know about his statements that caused you to rescind that invitation? And if you knew he got rough in sermons, why did it take you more than a year to publicly disassociate yourself from his remarks?

*****

GIBSON: And, Senator Obama, I want to do one more question, which goes to the basic issue of electability. And it is a question raised by a voter in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, a woman by the name of Nash McCabe. Take a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

NASH MCCABE, VOTER: Senator Obama, I have a question, and I want to know if you believe in the American flag. I am not questioning your patriotism, but all our servicemen, policemen and EMS wear the flag. I want to know why you don't.

*****

STEPHANOPOULOS: ... [A] follow-up on this issue, general theme of patriotism, in your relationships. A gentleman named William Ayers. He was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He's never apologized for that.

And, in fact, on 9/11, he was quoted in the New York Times saying, "I don't regret setting bombs. I feel we didn't do enough." An early organizing meeting for your State Senate campaign was held at his house and your campaign has said you are "friendly."

Can you explain that relationship for the voters and explain to Democrats why it won't be a problem?

*****


Comments:

Once again I think it is very telling that, given the lack of anything particularly interesting or positive to say about your side's candidate, you antis just can't stop yourselves from gossiping about Obama like a bunch of schoolgirls.

Scarlett is quite a sight to behold. I'd be returning her emails too if I were a guy.

Maybe when things get hectic, Barack has Michelle answer the emails for him.

Posted by: carder at June 12, 2008 2:47 PM


You mean People Magazine is gossiping, right?

Posted by: Cranky Catholic at June 12, 2008 2:49 PM


Scarlett's the one spilling the beans. She's the one that needs to be admonished.

Of course, it could all be very innocent and just a couple of good buddies clicking "send" every now and then.

Posted by: carder at June 12, 2008 2:50 PM


I honestly think that Obama hasn't a chance. Birds of a feather flock together, with all his shady friends, I'm suprised he's running for an office in the White House, and not running away from it after placing a bomb there in an attempt to blow it up. He's an elitist; an extremist to the core, and the only way he could get more pro-abortion is if he started wearing fetus-skin suits.

Posted by: xalisae at June 12, 2008 2:53 PM


Uh-O! Another Monica in the works?

If I were Michelle, I'd put the kebosh on the email communications. Barak, you're married. How dense can you be?

Ray, Do you defend his stupid behavior?

Posted by: Janet at June 12, 2008 2:53 PM


...and the London Telegraph, and Johansson herself?

Posted by: Cranky Catholic at June 12, 2008 2:54 PM


This is Jill's silliest shot at Obama yet.
It is too weak to rise to the level of a smear.

The questions were not silly, they were idiotic, and made the moderators look like morons.

If McSame's supporters try to continue to distract from the Bush third term with "issues" like flag pins, it can only help Obama.

Posted by: Bystander at June 12, 2008 2:58 PM


The worst thing Obama ever did was fail to pay his parking tickets. Insinuating he'd like to bomb the white house is a vicious libel and offensive to the core. I'm not sure about this "elitist" thing that has become part of the right wing talking points, but I'd be happy to have someone in the White House who is smart, educated, and compassionate.

Don't confuse youre desire (he "hasn't a chance" ) with what is likely to happen. Grampy McSame is not lighting a fire under the electorate right now.

Posted by: Hal at June 12, 2008 2:58 PM


I don't really care about his relationships, though. I think that someone being unfaithful to their spouse is a good reason to cite when not voting for someone, as being able to cheat requires a good many character flaws, and if someone told me that's why they're not voting for someone I'd say it's a good reason. (even though I think this is just rumors. I'd rather base my reason not to vote for Obama on policy flaws.) The only time I think anything like that matters to me though, is with someone like Clinton, who was actually sexually assaulting people.

Posted by: xalisae at June 12, 2008 3:05 PM


Ray, Do you defend his stupid behavior?

What's to defend, Janet? He is a red-blooded, American male who had an email exchange with a beautiful actress. If Scarlett Johansson emailed me, I would find time to reply to her, too.

I honestly think that Obama hasn't a chance.

You are welcome to cling to that delusion if it gives you comfort, xalisae. But be honest, are you really excited about voting for a patronizing ghoul who can't keep track of the truth and thinks it isn't important when we leave Iraq?

Posted by: Ray at June 12, 2008 3:13 PM


Yes, but what about Barack's affair with Batboy, Elvis, and Britney's alien baby?

What about his three-way with Heidi and Spencer?

What about Barack's Bigfoot love child killing Anna Nicole Smith and using her body to carve crop circles?

The demise of the Weekly World News signaled the death of legitimate news journalism.

I'm just following the path he's taken. Playing "connect the dots" isn't that hard, Hal. When I become BFFs with terrorists (who HAVE ACTUALLY BLOWN CRAP UP IN THE PAST, HAL) and people who profess loudly and publicly that America is evil and deserves terrible things (even though that guy is living in a million-dollar palatial estate...how cruel America can be, no?) to happen to us all, you can accuse me of being capable of all manner of despicable things.

"Smart, educated, and compassionate" and a dollar will get you a bus ride across town when you lack the cognitive capacity to comprehend that, as president, one of your chief goals is to protect the people from other hostile entities which would seek to do harm to them, and some of those people, no matter how good your intentions, will gladly serve you your own entrails at the dinner table when you come over for "peace talks".

Am I excited to have to opportunity to vote for McCain? Well, I was actually rooting for Fred Thompson, so unless McCain undergoes a miraculous change of heart about a couple things (oil drilling in Alaska/immigration) and/or gets a really, REALLY great running-mate, then no. But he's still WAY better than Obama, and I won't skip to the voting booth, but I'll pull the lever with a smile.

As far as him being "a patronizing ghoul who can't keep track of the truth", please to be citing instances? kkthx

And Iraq...umm...yeah...lessee....killing Al Qaeda operatives in Iraq on an almost daily basis...not a single successful terror attack on US soil since 9/11...hrm...all I can say is, "Mission Accomplished". I don't really care how long we stay there as long as we don't pull out prematurely. And I even have a vested interest in ending things there, considering I'd love to have my husband and brother back home. But I'm not some self-serving, unrealistic boob who doesn't comprehend the nature of protecting our non-combatants even at the expense of the people who signed up to do that job. It would be great if everyone got along and held hands under rainbows singing all day, but that's not how things work, and intensely wishing good upon someone and giving in to their every demand only adds fuel to the fire of these peoples' jihad. They want us dead for who we are, and I refuse to buy my birka, sorry.

Meh. People has been a rag now for quite some time, and now Newsweek is too. I blame the internets. R.I.P., old media. ;_;

Posted by: xalisae at June 12, 2008 3:43 PM


Oh, and that "Bush's Third Term!!!111" thing is really cute and everything, but do you see how little sense you make? First, you say, "I bet you don't even like him. You don't want to vote for him because he doesn't get along with the conservative constituency!". Then, it's "He's just another Bush! *nervous tick* BUSH LIED, KIDS DIEEEEED!".

Do you see how those two things are in conflict, or have you been avoiding reality so long you can't even see stuff like that anymore?

Posted by: xalisae at June 12, 2008 3:49 PM


"What's to defend, Janet? He is a red-blooded, American male who had an email exchange with a beautiful actress. If Scarlett Johansson emailed me, I would find time to reply to her, too."
---------------------------------------

He's a MARRIED person running for the HIGHEST office in the land.

An INITIAL or brief email exchange is fine...a PROLONGED one is courting a Lewinsky-like scandal.

Considering the admission that the girl has a definite "crush" on Obama makes this situation more volatile.

and oh...this would be applicable to ALL married men, not just Obama.

Posted by: RSD at June 12, 2008 3:53 PM


Oh, and McCain winning is far from delusion. Obama is one of the most extreme liberal candidates ever. The only thing about him is, he hasn't really come out and talked policy yet. Once McCain gets him past all his "Hope!" and "Change!" teleprompter B.S., things really will change. McCain is middle-of-the-road about many things. The American public will pick up on that once we get to the debates, and you'll see his numbers pick up gradually.

Yeah, McCain won't vote to drill in Alaska, which is something that would help, but...

Obama is in bed with all the oil speculators who are REALLY making prices per barrel go up. Just wait until that crap hits the fan, pobrecito. ;)

But I do think the continued exchange a tad creepy, particularly since Johansson obviously has a crush on Obama.

Michelle Obama...

“Barack Obama is the only person in this race who understands that, that before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation.”

But they can be repaired. Indeed, she had said a couple of weeks before, in Los Angeles: “Barack Obama ... is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”

Really? Barack is going to DEMAND that I? He is never going to ALLOW me????

I don't think so.

Posted by: mk at June 12, 2008 6:47 PM


See MK, you're already out of your comfort zone.

Posted by: Hal at June 12, 2008 7:00 PM


Hal,

Huh? I'm out of my comfort zone because I don't think that Barack Obama should fix my soul? Because I don't like the idea of him or anyone else "Demanding" or "Not allowiing" me to do something????

You're okay with this? It sounds like something off of an Oprah Show!

Posted by: mk at June 12, 2008 7:05 PM


MK, you're taking it a bit too literally.

Big ideas, loftly language, etc.

I like the idea of fixing some souls around here.


Posted by: Hal at June 12, 2008 7:27 PM


*lofty.

by the way, here's something to put fear in your heart:

From NBC's Mark Murray
In the latest NBC/WSJ poll, Obama leads McCain by six points (47%-41%) among registered voters. While polls can't accurately gauge an election five months out -- after all, so much can still happen -- it's worth putting Obama's lead into this perspective: Bush never trailed Kerry in the 2004 NBC/WSJ polls that measured registered voters' preference for Bush, Kerry, and Nader. And Bush's lead was never bigger than four points.

Posted by: Hal at June 12, 2008 7:29 PM


"NBC News"

Hahahaha! That's the best joke I've heard all day. More like NBC Opinion.

Posted by: xalisae at June 12, 2008 7:41 PM


I like the idea of fixing some souls around here.

well, so do I...but I don't want the president of the United States taking on that job!

And I realize that HE didn't say those things, his wife did. But when I heard her on the radio today my mouth fell open!

I've never heard her, and have tried to stay away from forming an opinion about her, because I know that what I hear other people say isn't exactly an honest assesment...but then I heard her own words.

Kind of creeped me out, considering I already think Obama himself aspires to be a Guru...

He just gives me the willies. Like someone out of a Stephen King novel...(cue twilight zone music)

I swear if he loses this election you'll find that he has started his own cult or info-mercial selling "How to change the World without changing yourself" CD's or "How to get the government to give you a free ride without going on Welfare" videos!

Posted by: mk at June 12, 2008 8:09 PM

If Obama loses, he and Oprah will go on the road, a preachin', and a healin', and savin' souls. Hallelujah!

Posted by: Janet at June 12, 2008 8:15 PM


Janet, MK,

It wouldn't surprise me if they got together to "change the world." Oprah's started her very own cult with that author of "A New Earth" or whatever the name of that book is. They have classes online at Oprah's website and everything. Creeeeeeepy.

Posted by: Elizabeth at June 12, 2008 8:22 PM


Either Oprah is extremely gullible or she thinks everyone else is. Either way, her and Obama were made for each other...

Wasn't it just a few months ago that she was saying she'd found the answer to life with someone elses book...The Secret? Or is this the same guy.

I agree MK, Obama is not what he appears to be. There is something about him, can't put my finger on what it is.... I guess it is just this: somebody doesn't have THAT MANY radical, anti-american associates and not buy into those ideas at least to some degree himself.

That's just common sense talking.

And that's not even getting into his policies, which I find to be disastrous!

well, to each his own. I'm Seriously creeped out by gramps McCain, but I know if I liked his politics a bit I could over look his creepy laugh and smile.

I'm thinking somewhere near the end of his first term, you'll warm up to Obama.

Hal,

Hal,

Now you're catchin' on. I just saw the last part of "Second Hand Lions" last night. Robert Duvall is giving Haley Joel Osment about whether or not he's been telling him the truth about Africa. He says "Sometimes you have to believe in things whether they are true or not"...Courage, Love, Honor...He says sometimes believing in things that might not exist is the only way a man can survive.

Score one for us nuts!
