Why Obama Is So Scary

Another one of my boyfriends, Edward Current, uploaded this video today, even though he filmed it in August 2009. It’s another rip-snorter, but the last few seconds is the real capper .. those last few seconds might be the reason he waited to share it with us until now ..

    Ok…I have now just noticed that this is supposed to be a parody. unfortunately its not that much different from some serious stuff that is out there and makes it hard to distinguish.

    There are people who will NOT take this as parody. They may even use is to further their own agenda – probably not the same as that of Mr. Curran.

    A technical kvetch: videos shown on this blog are sized a little too wide for the available display area, so that a fraction of an inch on the right side is cropped off.

    That’s rarely a problem with watching the video per se, but it means the “close” button for the damn Google ads is out of reach, so those ads just have to ignored/endured instead of being zapped.

    Maybe this is not a problem for everyone, but with Firefox on a Mac it happens every time – but not on any other SciBlog (to my limited knowledge).

    Sounds like A Modest Proposal in the same vein as Jonathon Swift.

    yes, i’ve noticed this annoying “feature” too, pierce. but i will often watch the videos in full-screen size, and when i do that, i can easily close all those annoying ads that pop up (much like rat turds) at the bottom of the videos.

    Of course this is a satire.
    It’s pretty hard to MISS!
    Edward Current’s YouTube videos are HYSTERICAL!
    Especially watch his: “I Converted to EVERY religion (just in case)” or “I Built a Prayer Amplifier” or “The PrayerMaster 2000” or “Why My Cat is a Christian” or “Evolution Schmevolution” or “Resisting the Urge: A Guide for Christian Boys” and many more.

    Read the info he posts about himself on YouTube and note that’s there’s a link to him on
