Obama & Tight Pants Make People Say Strange Things

By Debbie Schlussel
Is this a hint of what we’ll see come election day in November? Is Kim Minor the proto-typical “poll worker”? Are all polling places “Obama’s House”?
Remember all the hype about “rigged elections” and corrupt vote-counting in the 2000 and 2004 Presidential elections? Funny how none of those individuals are speaking out against Kim Minor, whose pants are too tight and gave her a sudden case of pan-Obama Tourette Syndrome or Mental Muffintop. The McCain campaign isn’t exactly pure on this either:

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — The poll worker who called a polling place “Obama’s house” in front of a television news crew apologized — then accused the local TV station of altering its footage to incriminate her.

Kim Minor also told the Vanderburgh County Election Board that her “tight pants” were partly to blame for the remarks broadcast by WTVW-FOX7 and posted on YouTube.
Afterward, Election Board members Tom Massey, David Shaw and County Clerk Susan Kirk voted 3-0 to turn over WTVW-FOX7’s unedited tape of the incident to the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office for investigation.
Bob Walters, news director of WTVW-FOX7, called Minor’s remarks “totally ridiculous” and her theory of videotape manipulation impossible for the local station.
Minor, a Democrat, and Republican poll worker Leon “Big Man” Collins, who called the polling place at Zion Missionary Baptist Church “McCain’s house,” told the Election Board that the incident on May 6 was not intentional. . . .
In WTVW-FOX7’s broadcast, Minor is shown saying, “This is (Barack) Obama’s house,” chanting Obama’s name and asking who in the polling place supports the Illinois Democrat. Collins says it is “(John) McCain’s house.”
When Minor asks who supports Obama, she looks over her right shoulder — where the tape shows the voting machines were stationed — and appears to be counting people.
“One, two, three, four, five,” she says, pointing around the room.
. . . .
Minor also told the Election Board that her remarks in the polling place could be attributed to her ill temper on a bad day. She said she had been annoyed when a poll worker under Collins’ charge left the church without authorization to get some food, when food was already available.
“My pants were too tight,” she said. “I mean, you know, they were, like, cutting into my side. And I couldn’t leave to go change my pants.”
“… Maybe a little stuff had built up in me, and that’s when I went too far.”

It reminds me of an old song my dad used to sing, Fats Waller’s 1941 hit, “Your Feets’ Too Big.” New Obama rendition: “Obama’s House: My Pants’ Too Tight.”

Anyone sees this woman knows why her pants were too tight.

The song thing is good, but actually, these little white fellows linked below sitting in their film canister are even a more accurate depiction.

She should have been fired on the spot. Why does it take a board meeting to determine that she violated the law.
Oh yeah, I forgot, she is black and we cannot step on her right to free speech.
