hi pit,

I'm writing an article for the school paper, and I don't want to claim that President Elect Barack Obama is a chain smoker with the pit's support. Does anyone have proof? I've heard this from a pretty trusted source, but if it is true, he's done a pretty good job of keeping quiet.

Thanks

Why don't you go write about how he pals around with terrorists and is a socialist. Oh, and not to forget, his middle name is Hussein. That sounds really scary.

...modes and scales are still useless.

EDIT: But I don't see how him chain smoking is relevant to ANYTHING in ANYWAY.

He used to smoke weed and crack. Then he quit those and started smoking cigarettes. Now he's off everything.

edit: btw, I'm not kidding about the weed and crack, he said it himself.

if he is then all of his accomplishments are now worth nothing.

i hate that kind of thinking. i couldn't care less about someone's personal habits. this one girl in my class was like "MLK commited adultery, we wasn't such a great man afterall." im like ummm...just cuz he wasn't a saint doesnt mean he didn't accomplish a shitload. thats irrelevent. im sure every major person in history has something about them that isn't perfect.

I'm 100% positive they had.
No ones perfect. In fact I think that's kind of relieving to know they've made mistakes.
Means that maybe someday a dumbf'ck like me can do something positive for other people.

You do know that everyone will shun you for such a boring paper?

"Here, I have outlined how the 'President-elect' chain smokes. Therefore, not only is he Muslim, he also associates with terrorists who still haven't given up their evil ways! Being a professor at a fine educational institution, that is!"

I'm pretty sure he did coke (kind of like every other politician ), but never smoked crack.

It sounds like he definitely has smoked, and recently, but I dont see how its relevant.

Don't even ask that question here unless you want a lot of truth.com fan boys to start lecturing you about how bad smoking actually is. Know the facts blah blah.

Cocaine =/= crack.

Seriously.

Quote by blackflag49
So it's official, Obama is a crackhead.


It's official, you're a dumbass.

Also, we can cover all the bases here by mentioning the fact that Bush did the exact same things. As have most other people on this Earth.

Snoop Dogg was interviewed on my local radio station (not a rock station, just a general music station, a little of everything) and they asked him who he was voting for.

(Mind you this was early in the election, Clinton was still in the race)

And he, no joke, says Osama.

They start cracking up and say "you mean Obama?"

And he says "who the f'ck is that?"

Well, I guess it could be worse. He could be a far right wing nut who believes Creationism should be taught in schools and abortion should be illegal.

Amen to that.

Honestly, anyone that uses the fact that he smokes cigarettes to support ANY opinion or story or whatever just shouldn't be allowed to publish. Even if it is a small school newspaper. That's just really trashy journalism.

(Yes, believe me, I understand the cognitions of media and politics, so don't give me the little eye rolly things as say something stupid like "obviously someone doesn't know how the media works")
