Fuck that. Most effective New England area ad for Obama would be that clip of her saying "Go Rays" aired today before the make-or-break Game 5.

Not that Obama needs more support in New England..

Pretty sure our good friend Orwell saw this coming a long time ago:

Nineteen Eighty-Four wrote:
The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them....To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.

Fuck the Tampa Bay Rays, that's all I'm saying. When the Sox lose tonight, I'm going to bury my Dustin Pedroia T-shirt in the ground to mourn the occasion.
