Samuel L. Jackson

The ad hasn't premiered yet and people are already asking that it not be shown.

I'm referring to a new internet political ad that will premiere on YouTube on September 24th in which Samuel L. Jackson literally asks voters to "Wake The F@#% Up! Vote for Obama."

Of course the operative word being Jackson's favorite word in the entire English language.

Needless to say, this is not an official ad put out by the Democratic Party, but a new ad funded by the Jewish Council for Education and Research Super PAC.

The same group was also behind another controversial "get out the vote" ad in which comedian Sarah Silverman offered "free lesbian sex" to GOP big money donor billionaire Sheldon Adelson, if he stopped funding Mitt Romney's presidential campaign.

So ya think Jackson's ad will convince any of those swing voters to Obama's side or the scare them away?

    I can't vote for a guy who supports torture and has Americans executed along with their children without due process. I'm voting for Governor Gary Johnson. He's antiwar, anti-torture, has a long history of reducing government spending and has principles, something that is missing in the other two Bozo's.

    "Obama(add without spaces yer clever little jibism to punctuate whatcha really feelin' about the prez here)" is so...so...Romney-esque.

    Whining and complaining about what Obama hasn't done, didn't get right, both the completely imaginative false notions as well a the actual ones, does nothing to solve problems. Entertaining distractions, some of these, but the bottom Effin line remains the same: Obstacles are what is seen when one's attention is removed from the primary goal. A famous football coach said it more succinctly, but the gist is the same.
    If someone's agenda or goal is to win the pissing contest, I will not vote for them.
    Obama, unlike some other candidate(s), has as his goal, a better future for his family, and Americans. Period. He may or may not get everything right. His heart is American. He doesn't have offshore bank accounts. He has daughters, who he believes should grow up and work in an America that does not penalize them with a twenty-seven-cent reduction for every dollar earned merely because they have no penis. If you do not meet the work standard or are just lazy, regardless of your gender, you should not get the paycheck. If you are doing what you were hired to do, you should be as compensated fairly for your efforts, as every other worker.
    And Sandra, your comment, prefaced with the word, "Gosh"--solidifies from the git-go, your blatant ignorance and opted naivety, for surely, you aren't as despicable a person as your words impress...are you? I beg your pardon: you might not have animosity...but you do seem to be in a bit of a stupor.

    Just a thought from pasty-white, old

    @RichStine quote: "...your blatant ignorance and opted naivety, for surely, you aren't as despicable a person as your words impress...are you?" If having a diametrically opposing view makes one DESPICABLE then I am guilty as charged. We're living in freaky times where free thought is attacked and discouraged at every turn. Having opposing views does not automatically make the other person the enemy. We've been through this countless times in history (always ends badly). This is not the place to engage in deep level analysis of a far from perfect political system; besides, it's hard to engage in any form of proper debate when the level of discourse heads straight for the gutter. Suffice it to say that Obama can count me OUT as one of his supporters. In addition to emotion, we often forget that LOGIC is also a tool in the human arsenal. Things go awry when those two forces are not in balance. ***************@Bond Girl quote: "Braindead doesn't even describe the mentality of some people." Truer words were never spoken. If someone is in a deep coma, there is no point shouting in his ear through a megaphone, jumping up and down, splashing water on his face or shaking him to let him know that his bed is on fire.

    Bingo, Rich! I wish some of these women, whether the ones who vote GOP simply bc their family has, or the ones (like Sandra) whose apathy of Obama only makes Boehner smile, would google "Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act" to see how less they will earn with a Romney/Ryan presidency. Braindead doesn't even describe the mentality of some people.

    Gosh, black folks love them some Obama! For not going along with the masses, I am told to take my meds, STFU; I'm full of air; I should go somewhere else with my comments, and that I am a ABW not because of politics. Interesting and sad. For what it's worth, I'm not for Romney either. There is so much going on beyond Dem vs Rep. It's not that simple as it is portrayed in the mainstream. No animosity on my part though because I was once caught up in the glitz, glamour, propaganda as well...then I woke up.

  • BluTopaz | September 16, 2012 7:56 PM

    @ Sandra--I thought your sole reward is believing you are unique from the masses of Black folks?

  • Sandra | September 16, 2012 7:47 PM

    @Blutopaz - Although getting you riled up is reward enough (if this anger will help you open the door to learning about the actual inner workings of the gov), if pressed for a choice, I choose BOTH because I deserve and expect the best in life. Black folks should try that way of thinking more often (that way we wouldn't be in the condition we're in as a group and we wouldn't be fooled when a puppet in black skin presents himself as the Messiah perpetuating the SAME agenda).

  • BluTopaz | September 16, 2012 4:19 PM

    Which do you prefer for "not going along with the masses", a gold star or a cookie?

  • LB | September 16, 2012 3:20 PMReply

    Sandra, a lot of words no content. I think you're just plain old angry nothing to do with politics.

  • sandra | September 16, 2012 1:29 PMReply

    I was on the Obama bandwagon the first time around, but I WILL NOT be joining in on the Obamapolooza festivities this time. Flashy smiles, expensive suits and stirring speeches abound while honest answers about 9/11 remain concealed and implementation of policies to strip Americans of their rights is the order of the day. So tired of the spectacle, fake "East Coast/West Coast" rivalry that is the circus show of Dem vs Rep. Power lies not with the President; he's just the spokesmodel. So yeah...I agree people should wake the F*** up and see beyond the political spectacle.

  • BluTopaz | September 16, 2012 2:39 PM

    Perhaps Sandra should SHUT the F@#% up and take her meds, no?

  • Priss | September 16, 2012 1:39 PM

    Huh? 9/11? East coast West coast? Girl, please. Yammering all that nonsense somewhere else.

  • Jai | September 16, 2012 12:19 PMReply

    I can't wait to see it!

    What the 'fugg' are you talking about?

  • MDL | September 15, 2012 4:42 PMReply

    Hey, if republicans can have celebrities talk to chairs democrats can have celebrities say f@#%. It's only fair.

  • sergio | September 15, 2012 5:17 PM

    Point well taken

  • Floyd Webb | September 15, 2012 4:29 PMReply

    Being from a fan of the church of the sub genii slogan, "fugg if if they can't take a joke" I wholly endorse Mr Jackson's effort to get them swing voters and others to "wake the fugg up!!" For surely the " slack."

    I think he would gain ever more mileage is he would ask the POTUS "what the fugg is up" with indefinite detention and extra- judicial execution of American citizens. Surely some Enemy of the State shown it going on with that.

    I depend on Sam Jackson to keep it real raw. Plus I will get a chuckle out of it.
