Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging


Barrack Obama on T.V. It's not because John McCain doesn't care; it's because John McCain doesn't get it. (APPLAUSE) For over two decades -- for over two decades, he's subscribed to that old, discredited Republican philosophy: Give more and more to those with the most and hope that prosperity trickles down to everyone else.



Barrack Obama on T.V. In Washington, they call this the "Ownership Society," but what it really means is that you're on your own. Out of work? Tough luck, you're on your own. No health care? The market will fix it. You're on your own. Born into poverty? Pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, even if you don't have boots. You are on your own. (APPLAUSE)
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Hi boys! What are you doing?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Hello, Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love! We're watching Barrack Obama's acceptance speech.
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love You're right, Gallito Mescalito; he sure can speechify!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank And he makes sense.



BarrackObama on T.V. Well, it's time for them to own their failure. It's time for us to change America. And that's why I'm running for president of the United States. (APPLAUSE)
All three in one voice YAY!!!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Hey dere, eviebuddy! 'sup?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank We're watching Obama's acceptance speech.
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Hi, cat. Please it keep down so we can hear!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Barrack Obama on T.V. You see, you see, we Democrats have a very different measure of what constitutes progress in this country.
We measure progress by how many people can find a job that pays the mortgage, whether you can put a little extra money away at the end of each month so you can someday watch your child receive her college diploma.
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Wow! Dat guy's inspirin'!
Red Mr. Peanut Bank He certainly is!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy I tink I'm gonna watch dis ting!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love Then keep it down, please!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!



Barrack Obama on T.V. We measure progress in the 23 million new jobs that were created when Bill Clinton was president...(APPLAUSE)... when the average American family saw its income go up $7,500 instead of go down $2,000, like it has under George Bush. (APPLAUSE)
¡El Penguino! ¡Hola! Watcha doin'?
Mighty Moose of Vermont What's on teevee; another Bollywood movie?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank We're watching Obama's acceptance speech.
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love He's making a lot of sense, and he's a pleasure to listen to!
Barrack Obama on T.V. We measure the strength of our economy not by the number of billionaires we have or the profits of the Fortune 500, but by whether someone with a good idea can take a risk and start a new business, or whether the waitress who lives on tips can take a day off and look after a sick kid without losing her job, an economy that honors the dignity of work.
Mighty Moose of Vermont That's good stuff!
¡El Penguino! Yeah! I wanna hear the rest of this!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Den shaddap so we's can heah it! Geez!!



Barrack Obama on T.V. The fundamentals we use to measure economic strength are whether we are living up to that fundamental promise that has made this country great, a promise that is the only reason I am standing here tonight. Because, in the faces of those young veterans who come back from Iraq and Afghanistan, I see my grandfather, who signed up after Pearl Harbor, marched in Patton's army, and was rewarded by a grateful nation with the chance to go to college on the G.I. Bill. In the face of that young student, who sleeps just three hours before working the night shift, I think about my mom, who raised my sister and me on her own while she worked and earned her degree, who once turned to food stamps, but was still able to send us to the best schools in the country with the help of student loans and scholarships. (APPLAUSE)
Bunrab, the Filthiest and Raggediest Toy in the House Sigh, hi everyone. What are you all doing?
Red Mr. Peanut Bank We're watching Obama's acceptance speech.
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Bunrab, the Filthiest and Raggediest Toy in the House Gee, he sounds like he knows what he's talking about. That's something we haven't heard in a long time!
Miss Egyptian Hippo of Love And he's easy on the eyes.
Mighty Moose of Vermont He certainly keeps one's attention!
¡El Penguino! Hey, Bunrab. You're a mess! Whereya been?
Bunrab, the Filthiest and Raggediest Toy in the House One word: Chompita!
Mr. Chompy's Chewed-up Squeaky Kitty Toy Will youse guys shaddap? Da man is talkin'!!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Bunrab, the Filthiest and Raggediest Toy in the House Sorry! Sheesh!



Barrack Obama on T.V. And when I hear a woman talk about the difficulties of starting her own business or making her way in the world, I think about my grandmother, who worked her way up from the secretarial pool to middle management, despite years of being passed over for promotions because she was a woman.
She's the one who taught me about hard work. She's the one who put off buying a new car or a new dress for herself so that I could have a better life. She poured everything she had into me. And although she can no longer travel, I know that she's watching tonight and that tonight is her night, as well. (APPLAUSE)



Barrack Obama on T.V. Now, I don't know what kind of lives John McCain thinks that celebrities lead, but this has been mine. (APPLAUSE) These are my heroes; theirs are the stories that shaped my life. And it is on behalf of them that I intend to win this election and keep our promise alive as president of the United States. (APPLAUSE) What -- what is that American promise? It's a promise that says each of us has the freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have obligations to treat each other with dignity and respect.



Barrack Obama on T.V. What -- what is that American promise? It's a promise that says each of us has the freedom to make of our own lives what we will, but that we also have obligations to treat each other with dignity and respect. It's a promise that says the market should reward drive and innovation and generate growth, but that businesses should live up to their responsibilities to create American jobs, to look out for American workers, and play by the rules of the road. Ours -- ours is a promise that says government cannot solve all our problems, but what it should do is that which we cannot do for ourselves: protect us from harm and provide every child a decent education; keep our water clean and our toys safe; invest in new schools, and new roads, and science, and technology.



Barrack Obama on T.V. Our government should work for us, not against us. It should help us, not hurt us. It should ensure opportunity not just for those with the most money and influence, but for every American who's willing to work. That's the promise of America, the idea that we are responsible for ourselves, but that we also rise or fall as one nation, the fundamental belief that I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper. That's the promise we need to keep. That's the change we need right now. (APPLAUSE)
¡El Penguino! Hey! What's goin' on? I feel kinda weird!
Mighty Moose of Vermont Yes. I certainly feel apprehensive all of the sudden.
Bunrab, the Filthiest and Raggediest Toy in the House I feel like hell all the time now, but you're right; there has been some sort of disturbance in The Force.



Barrack Obama on T.V. So -- so let me -- let me spell out exactly what that change would mean if I am president. (APPLAUSE) Change means a tax code that doesn't reward the lobbyists who wrote it, but the American workers and small businesses who deserve it. (APPLAUSE) You know, unlike John McCain, I will stop giving tax breaks to companies that ship jobs overseas, and I will start giving them to companies that create good jobs right here in America. (APPLAUSE)
Red Mr. Peanut Bank Well, it had better not be that Crocagator or he will be very, very, sorry. I am in no mood for his shenanigans!
Gallito Mescalito ¡Shriek!
Crocagator Heh. Heh. Oops!



Barrack Obama on T.V. (APPLAUSE) I've seen it -- I've seen it in the workers who would rather cut their hours back a day, even though they can't afford it, than see their friends lose their jobs; in the soldiers who re-enlist after losing a limb; in the good neighbors who take a stranger in when a hurricane strikes and the floodwaters rise. You know, this country of ours has more wealth than any nation, but that's not what makes us rich. We have the most powerful military on Earth, but that's not what makes us strong. Our universities and our culture are the envy of the world, but that's not what keeps the world coming to our shores. Instead, it is that American spirit, that American promise, that pushes us forward even when the path is uncertain; that binds us together in spite of our differences; that makes us fix our eye not on what is seen, but what is unseen, that better place around the bend. That promise is our greatest inheritance. It's a promise I make to my daughters when I tuck them in at night and a promise that you make to yours, a promise that has led immigrants to cross oceans and pioneers to travel west, a promise that led workers to picket lines and women to reach for the ballot.



Barrack Obama on T.V. (APPLAUSE) And it is that promise that, 45 years ago today, brought Americans from every corner of this land to stand together on a Mall in Washington, before Lincoln's Memorial, and hear a young preacher from Georgia speak of his dream. (APPLAUSE) The men and women who gathered there could've heard many things. They could've heard words of anger and discord. They could've been told to succumb to the fear and frustrations of so many dreams deferred. But what the people heard instead -- people of every creed and color, from every walk of life -- is that, in America, our destiny is inextricably linked, that together our dreams can be one. "We cannot walk alone," the preacher cried. "And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back."
America, we cannot turn back...



Barrack Obama on T.V. (APPLAUSE) ... not with so much work to be done; not with so many children to educate, and so many veterans to care for; not with an economy to fix, and cities to rebuild, and farms to save; not with so many families to protect and so many lives to mend. America, we cannot turn back. We cannot walk alone. At this moment, in this election, we must pledge once more to march into the future. Let us keep that promise, that American promise, and in the words of scripture hold firmly, without wavering, to the hope that we confess. Thank you. God bless you. And God bless the United States of America. (APPLAUSE)
Everybody, all at once YAY!! YAY!! ¡SÍ SE PUEDE! ¡SÍ SE PUEDE!



¡¡SSSHHHHRRRRRIIIIIEEEEEKKKK!!
