O饭的特点

听到很多人说,O饭一般都听不进去Obama的负面消息,即使消息是真实可靠的。忠实O饭都这样,听不进去的。
我在美国和别人讨论政治,到目前为止只有两个人和我说到过:
“I’ve made up my mind” (no matter what you say I won’t change it).

两个人都是忠实O饭。分别是在讨论Obama和西藏问题的时候说出来的。

可见O饭洗脑之严重,精神之空虚。犹如宗教。很多教徒都是终身不会改变信仰的。

具体一点的例子,关于他在这个教堂20年,是否听过他的牧师的极端言论,Obama确实前后自相矛盾。我提出这个事实,其中一个O饭的反应是:“Ah blablabla”。原话。意思大概是,I don’t care。我认为Obama赢得大选的可能很低。如果他赢得大选,我觉得美国有的受。

和Obama粉丝对话西藏问题

此人是典型free Tibet
我说了很多关于西方媒体歪曲事实。
他基本上认为我这样认为是因为我被中国政府洗脑。也不要求我给出证据。
后来我说我可以show给你看。他说

“Please! 这就像说世贸大厦是美国政府撞的一样。
You are nuts!”

我说我们的对话没有必要进行下去了。
他说他同意。

我说要在美国幸福的生活,还真的必须像你这样。

不过还是把那些图片forward到他邮箱去了。

他说他追踪我的IM status蛮久了
然后我刚才把我的status改成
Stupidity is awesome if you want a happily ever after life in US.

OH BTW
此人也是疯狂O饭
我也没忘记打击他作为O饭,everything is about words

PS:
他说他前两天和4个中国人一起吃饭
这四个中国人告诉他,在中国如果你说一些敏感政治话题,政府就会派人上门。
我不知道这四个中国人是谁。但是我说我认识的中国人没有人持有这种观点。
他“讽刺”我说,对啊你认识所有的中国人。

A break after Tibet, Obama again.

Obama today has revealed the racist side of his white grandmother, who “helped raise” him. His speech today is a damage control measure he has to do, because of his pastor. And he has been with his pastor for 20 years. This is how he described his white grandmother:

…a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.

He refused media to interview his grandmother because of “family privacy”. Now he disclosed his white grandma as racist. Very nice political tricks.

I guess most people are tired of this race. So let me quote someone’s summarization of Obama’s honesty:

Obama’s race does not matter to me. What matters to me is honesty. Obama has been caught in many little lies lately. First there was no meeting in Canada, then there was. First Rezko raised a little money, then a lot. First he never heard any controversial comments from Rev Wright, then he did. Obama’s affiliation controversial figures is divisive, not his race….

And one article from WSJ I find pretty insightful about Obama’s seemingly success.

关于投Obama人群特点的一个观察

数据来自CNN.com各州的exit poll。

如果大家有闲心,可以自己去点来看。我这里就总结了一下。

几乎所有的exit poll里,大家都可以看到,女性投Hillary的更多,男性投Obama的更多。黑人几乎都是过80%投Obama,这些都没有什么悬念。

另外一个很重要的人群是年龄低于30岁的选民,基本上多数会投Obama,不管是哪个州。

问题在于,如果把这个数据和”church attendance”结合起来看,就有一个有趣的现象。大家应该可以公认,美国年轻人虔诚信教的比较少,相比中年和老年人,去教堂的次数肯定会比较少。都在读书,就算虔诚,估计也就做做礼拜罢了。

但是,在大部分我采样抽查的州的数据里,每周去教堂不止一次的人,投Obama的可能性更高。这种现象在Hillary赢的州里更为容易观察:每周去一次,每个月去一次,和每年去几次教堂的人,投希拉里的多;但是每周去教堂不止一次的,投Obama的多。另外根据不完全的观察,从不去教堂的相对更可能投Obama,但是这个趋势似乎不如每周去教堂不止一次的弱。

因此,当我们把投Obama的年轻人去掉之后,剩下的人群里,每周去教堂次数不止一次的人的比例就更高了。我认为这个现象暗示以下一些可能:

– 投Obama的人更有可能对希望自己精神受到控制,或者说更为空虚更需要精神依托。
– 投Obama的人更有可能对他要投的候选人有崇拜(worship)的可能
– 投Obama的人,面对他的yes, we can和change,心理反应可能很类似基督教Believe in Jesus,有罪只要忏悔,只要相信上帝,就可以上天堂。

以上是不完整的一些猜测。但是我觉得这个真的是很有趣。

有类似情况的州包括(W: Hillary won; L: Hillary lost):

Texas (W), RI (W), Ohio (W), Maryland (W), Illinois (L), Alabama (L), New Mexico (W), Virginia (L), Louisiana (L), Arizona (W), California (W), Oklahoma (W), Arkansas (W), NY (W), Massachusetts (W), NJ (W), Florida (W), South C (L).

没有出现在这个列表里的州,要么不符合这个规律,要么没有数据。

After Clinton win, Obama goes desperate. Or crazy.

First of all congratulations, Hillary Clinton.

After the loss of yesterday, Obama is going desperate. He claims he’s going negative on Hillary Clinton, and charged “what does she has to hide”? OK, so it would all exciting that we would see all the dark sides of Democrat politicians. And that’s great, because GOP is going to win.

But it all comes down to the question whether Obama is a better leader. I do not believe so. And see how desperate he is? He’s now like a gangster:

Mr. Obama said later that he wanted to meet Tina Fey, the comedy writer and actress who was the guest host on “Saturday Night Live” when it all but endorsed Mrs. Clinton.

“Clearly, Tina Fey and I are going to have to have a conversation,” Mr. Obama said.

Source: NYT.

OMG, Tina Fey is going to be really really afraid. Tina Fey was the guest speaker on the last SNL before the election in Texas and Ohio. She apparently endorsed Hillary on that show and reporters speculate that played an important role in changing some people’s mind to vote for Hillary Clinton. She said something like, “We are all bitches. But bitches get things done”.

To conclude, Obama decided not to pretend to be an innocent and pure saint any more.
