Bottoms for Obama

posted by on March 19 at 8:00 AM


The website—clearly still under development—is here. The merch is here. But why is the Obama campaign discriminating against tops? Hm. I’m thinking Obama may have to give another one of those speeches of his.

wait, uh, what's the starfish about?

The starfish is hardly clever.

I'm a bottom for Hilldawg, baby. Of course if I think saying I'm a bottom for Obama will get a dick in my ass quicker, I'll do it.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 19, 2008 8:28 AM

Given all the whining and bitching from the Clinton side I thought the bottoms all supported Hillary?

This is shocking! Shocking I tell you!!

You're so pliable Poe.

Tops don't need no bling; theys got the real thing!

Posted by nbc | March 19, 2008 8:49 AM

Obama is not discriminating against tops, the tops just haven't decided who they want to endorse yet. Hmmm, the concept of indecisive tops seem kind of scary.

*sigh* I'm apparently not hip enough for Obama or Slog. I don't get the starfish reference either.

Perhaps it's a sphincter.

Posted by hehe | March 19, 2008 8:55 AM

The tops are all for Hillary, that's why there's no Obama crap for us. And since when are bottoms allowed to have an opinion?

Posted by Fifty-Two-Eighty | March 19, 2008 8:57 AM

I'm totally pliable. Somebody tell Dan Savage.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 19, 2008 9:01 AM

The bottom of the ocean.

Posted by morons | March 19, 2008 9:02 AM

A quick scan of craigslist reveals that tops are incredibly rare and increasingly elusive. Why spend money going after such a small population?

Posted by Ziggity | March 19, 2008 9:04 AM

This group is needed. In my unofficial slutty research I've found that bottoms tend to be Hillary supports, but versatiles and tops Obama. I'm glad they have a group now.

Posted by JJ | March 19, 2008 9:15 AM

I wonder what the Starfish lobby thinks of being associated with Obama?

Posted by Sargon Bighorn | March 19, 2008 9:15 AM

Let's face it, there are nine bottoms to every top and Obama's masculine charms are sure to get those chocolate starfish winking!

Posted by Lady Bird Bottom | March 19, 2008 9:21 AM

The starfish represents a brown star.

Images from Dan Savages' glorious war on Iraq.

This comment to be deleted soon as off-topic.

So, some dipshit gets an "idea", which he quickly turns into a "website" (which isn't actually a website; there is NOTHING more annoying than "oh, check back later, we'll have stuff here, promise"), and designs a stupid, stupid logo and puts it on Cafe Press, and that taken all together is...what exactly? A joke? A statement? Slog-worthy? No.

This fool needs to have his ass kicked. Wait, does that make me a top?

Posted by Fnarf | March 19, 2008 9:39 AM

Here Fanarf is a bio of a guy who died in Iraq. You know, the war in Iraq? The war your brave warrior Dan supported and enabled?Do you think this is slog worthy?

Sure wish DW would die in Iraq.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 19, 2008 9:48 AM

Hey, DW, leave the dead alone. Don't you have a puppet to man or a drum circle to join at some self-indulgent protest? This is your big day! Why waste it in front of a computer?

Posted by They signed up, after all..... | March 19, 2008 9:49 AM

DW isn't doing anything to stop the war in iraq by posting on slog.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | March 19, 2008 9:50 AM

The versatile tops in my apartment are all going for Obama...

sadly he keeps getting away. [rimshot]

Posted by Dawgson | March 19, 2008 10:00 AM

Heh. What Fifty-Two-Eighty said.

Posted by Tlazolteotl | March 19, 2008 10:07 AM

You are right Bellevue. DW is not doing anything to stop the war posting on SLOG. DW is simply reminding sloggers of what you support.

What are YOU doing to stop the war Bellevue? And if YOU support the war Bellevue, why aren't YOU over there fighting in it?

Refer to self in third person. Check.
Always write "you" in all caps. Check.
Repeat same post day after day. Check.
Tinfoil hat.
Tinfoil hat?
Fuck! Who took my fucking tinfoil hat? You fuckers! You took my fucking hat. I mean YOU fuckers. YOU took my tinfoil hat. Fuck it.

Starfish live on the bottom of the sea, thus it is a symbol of "bottomness"
I guess a spinning top could be the symbol for "topness" not sure what symbol there would be for versitiles.

Posted by Heather | March 19, 2008 10:16 AM

DW is Dan Savage.

Posted by pencil riot | March 19, 2008 10:24 AM

But, DW, you are supporting the war, because you are fixing in people's minds the idea that opposition to the war = teh crazy.

Posted by Fnarf | March 19, 2008 10:27 AM

DW is Mr. Poe. Everybody knows that. That's what makes it fun.

Posted by elenchos | March 19, 2008 10:30 AM

DW, people like you make my non support of the war seem stupid and childishly spiteful.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | March 19, 2008 10:48 AM

Bellevue-YOU make YOURSELF look childish and stupid.

Posted by DW | March 19, 2008 10:55 AM

See, thats the kind of spiteful and childish behavior I'm talking about. When people who support the war say that those that are against it are out of touch, they are referring to people like you, who still hang on to the decision to go to war. They point to you, who dont allow for a change in opinion on anything. You're doing a bigger disservice to anti war efforts by being a self righteous loudmouth.

Posted by Bellevue Ave | March 19, 2008 10:59 AM

DW makes me want to support the war.

Way to go, DW. You're working wonders for your cause.

Posted by Mr. Poe | March 19, 2008 11:20 AM

Heather, the Starfish is used because of it's close visual similarity to a puckered butthole... Thus, an appropriate image for a top would be a banana.

But your theory was creative none the less.

Posted by UNPAID BLOGGER | March 19, 2008 1:35 PM

Wow, talk about targeting your demographics. I can't wait to see the pandering to this constituency.

Poe, I'd do ya even if you do support Hilly.

Posted by non sequitur | March 19, 2008 6:07 PM

Because in P-Town after an erotic afternoon at the beach, a starfish is what you pull of your back.
