Ellen Barkin: Hey, Twitchy, stop taking ‘poetic license’ with your verbatim quotes of my tweets!

It appears devoted Twitchy reader Ellen Barkin is sick and tired of being quoted accurately by Twitchy.

Bless her precious heart.

“Poetic license”: we do not think that means what you think it means, Ellen. We hate to take issue (yet again) with our number one fan’s commentary about Twitchy’s reporting, but hell’s bells, she makes it easy.

One more time with itsy bitsy words: Twitchy reports “who said what.” We do that by embedding people’s tweets.

So when Twitchy reports that Barkin tweeted, “Yes I vote Pres Obama…to protect his ppl,ALL his ppl,” there’s no “poetic license” involved. In her cuckoo estimation, Obama doesn’t work for the American people; they’re his property. (Sorta goes along with the whole creepy Obama cultism thing.)

But since that icky Michelle Malkin links to Twitchy from her social media accounts, you know, “poetic license.” Because that makes sense.

Ever eager to baffle her fellow Twitchy readers by denying the meaning behind her words, Barkin responded to the claim that she feels Americans “belong to” Obama.

Who’s being literal now, Ellen?

Note to Ellen: Twitter doesn’t do “bold.” Great idea, though! Cher would have a field day.

Odd. Libs know enough about Romney’s tax returns to rage about how he paid too much for their liking. Is Barkin falling behind on her Twitchy reading? The nerve!

She’s got us there with that retweet. We don’t want lapdog fact-checking to get in the way of the election.

And … it’s all about race, natch. Talk about “The New Normal.” Take another drink and have another ready.

This election’s got nothing to do with race, doll and it is about our futures. It’s about making sure the president works for us and not the other way around. And it’s about ensuring we remain free people, not “his people.”

But thanks for your loyal readership, Ellen. We hope we’ve cleared things up for you.

  • WingedBishop

    She’s just bitter because the NFL brought the real footballs back and she’s out of a job.

  • TheAmishDude

    I disagree. This election has everything to do with race. People voting for Obama are doing so because they’re racist. Straight up.

    • arc99

      claiming that people are voting for the President based on race, is a flat out lie, striaght up.

      • http://www.facebook.com/kent.vig Kent Vig

        How many examples do you want?

      • Shawn Smith

        If someone says, and I’ve heard it often, that the only reason someone might *not* vote for Obama is because they’re racist, then it’s not difficult to infer that they’re voting for him because of his race, especially when he’s been screwing up on so many fronts lately.

      • disqus_eric

        Yeah, it’s the free phone, dammit!

      • TocksNedlog

        Uh, so you’re saying that no one is voting for him because of race? Nobody at all?

        You do know that’s not quite true, don’t you?

        • Donna Acosta

          I know someone who voted for him because she believed he would “help the children.” Given the substantial increase in the number of families on SNAP since Obama took over, I assume she realizes she was reeeeally wrong.

      • TheAmishDude

        Of course they are. They say so. Romney was asked how African-Americans would feel if he were the one to defeat Obama. Remember the “historic election”? That’s racism. It’s paternalistic condescension, but it’s racism.

        Obama’s gotten everything wrong. He can’t even run on foreign policy.

        And now we have the soft bigotry of low expectations, where we have to accept 8% UE and millions not even looking as the new normal.

      • http://www.facebook.com/kent.vig Kent Vig
        • Catchance

          Yup… and he’s not the only one. There are numerous videos of Obama supporters being interviewed and asked questions such as, “Are you voting for Obama because he’s pro-life?” and they all vigorously nod their heads and say, “Yes!”

      • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

        Other than being half-black, why did anyone vote for him in 2008? He had fewer qualifications than a guy sweeping the floor in a bus station.

        • digitalPimple

          One thing he’s good at: Handing out free #Obamaphones . Should grab himself a kiosk in a mall somewhere. He’s got that market cornered.

        Hey dopey – 95% of the voting black demographic voted for Obama in 2008 – if the same was said about whites voting for McCain, then you would have said it was racist – you can’t have it one way – “Straight” up!

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          I wonder how many of the white demographic voted Obama in ’08 won’t be touching that with someone elses’ 10ft pole this cycle?

      • MILAN68

        according to SAMUEL L JACKSON the only reason he voted for Obama is because he’s black.. the blacks vote for him because he gives them free phones and he’s BLACK..Well he’s not really black he’s a ZEBRA.. The only reason gays vote for him is because he the first gay president.. str8 up

      • Allan Hamilton

        A “lie” is a false statement made when the truth is known to the presenter. This was no lie because the opposite is not the truth. Now, let’s look at “ignorance”…that’s when the truth is available but is castigated because of (in this case) radical ideology. You sir, are ignorant for failing to see the truth that stands before you.

        • Catchance

          Okay, I had to read that through a couple of times, but you’re right… he’s not telling the truth, but it’s through ignorance, not deliberately lying.

      • Donna Acosta

        Really? How do you explain that I was told, again and again, that not voting for Obama is racist? Are you suggesting I had multiple visual and auditory hallucinations? smh!!

      • Michael Rice

        Wrong….I knew a few who voted for him simply because he was black…by their own admission..

      • http://www.facebook.com/citizen.geary Citizen Geary

      That is a great point. Everyone who votes for him is a racist

    • mrbill59

      Like sam and ci li lo voting for him JUST because hes black. Thats racist.
      That is all

  • Brian Sprouse

    Ofcourse it’s about race, Obama couldn’t win if it were about Jobs or foreign policy.

  • Brian Sprouse

    Funny how the dems are so eager to read Romney’s taxes but had no intention at all about reading Obamacare before they voted for it.

      Don’t forget the handouts for votes.

      Nope. Had to pass it to see what was in it.

    I think she may have stated in that second part of the statement there while she looking in the mirror

      Wow, you admit to committing hate crimes against those whose opinions differ from your own, lol! You are a perfect example of why the conservative right are being seen as anti-American and are quite literally a bunch of narrow-minded zealots. You align yourselves with the modern Nazi’s by your own accidental admissions. Although I really couldn’t care less about Ellen B or her opinions, she apparently had you in mind when describing the Right.

    Barkin was on “Watch What Happens Live” Thursday night with one of her true lapdogs, Andy Cohen. She looked a hot mess. She behaved crazier than usual. She puts a face on “The Left”. I’d like to see Barkin’s tax returns. I’d like to know how many times she’s stepped forward to pay an extra million.

    Always amazes me that Jews like her choose to back the Administration that cares the least about the continued existence of Israel.

    • arc99

      Always amazes me how people lie about the President’s record on Israel. Naturally, there are no facts to support the argument, just some pronouncement as to what the President “cares” about as if they had psychic ability.

      Fortunately, the people whose opinions actually matter on this subject are more honest. Here are a few facts. You Obama-haters should try them sometime. I caution you though, they seldom reflect anything you folks express in your opinions.

      Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Ehud Barak said Monday that when it comes to his nation’s security, the Obama administration is doing “more than anything that I can remember in the past.”

          Blaming Israel First
          Jonathan S. Tobin — January 2012
          (From Commentary Magazine)The Obama administration began the month of December with two startling statements in relation to Israel. First, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta claimed the increasing isolation of the Jewish state, caused by both the growth of Islamism in both Turkey and Egypt and the rejection of negotiations by the Palestinian Authority, is Israel’s fault—rather than the result of its neighbors’ drift toward hatred and extremism.Although he pledged American support for Israel’s security, Panetta stated that passivity on the part of Israel’s government accounted for its solitary condition, and he demanded that it make gestures to appease Ankara and Cairo—even though both the Turkish government and the newly ascendant Muslim Brotherhood have demonstrated their lack of interest in warmer relations with the Jewish state. Panetta also demanded that Israel “just get to the damn table” even though it is the Palestinians who have refused numerous Israeli offers of direct negotiations.

        Did you also know that Obama has never told a lie in his life, knew nothing about F&F as it was being executed, did everything within his power to protect our embassies on Sept. 11, isn’t a narcissist, and that he hasn’t had the time to do proper debate prep because he has been working too hard doing his job governing?

    “Loss of their futures”? Treasury Secretary Geithner knows the CBO projects that U.S. debt will implode our economy by 2027 and admits having *NO PLAN* to fix it. Is that a future? 15 years and down the drain with no plan otherwise?

    If so, I’d rather not go “Forward!”

    Perhaps Ellen is right. When she tweeted “his ppl” perhaps she was referring to just “HIS people”; know what I mean, Vern?

  • digitalPimple

    What a crack-pot.

    Ellen is right this time, it’s all about race. If it were any white man in the office right now he would be already be gone. Nixon was removed from the White House for lying. How many lies can Obama get away with?

      All of them.

  • EastValleyConservative

    This woman is insane and has convinced herself she can do no wrong. Despite her own words, Twitter is forever, especially in screen capture. Never said that? Let’s look again. Hope The New Normal tanks like it should. The ONLY reason she took to Twitter is because of that show. She must fear “the little people” are too dumb to know her character who is supposed to be a bigot, gay basher and racist is just a character. Hence her need to tweet all day long about how open minded and diverse she is. Oddly though, much like the crowd she caters to-their only so-called proof of their “diversity” is displayed in vile tweets towards anyone they perceive as not towing the multi-culti line, sight (and proof) unseen.

  • digitalPimple

    Obama cares so much for HIS people, that he let them die in a terrorist attack on Sept 11th then lied.

  • mkreider

    Barkin is such a tool. Nobody wanted the first black president to fail. He has failed miserably and the time has come to replace him. Not everything is about race, this is about the economy stupid. BTW: the internet is not anonymous. You tweet, it will be seen.

    Ellen Barkin is a washed-up-old-hag trying to stay relevant (like Madonna). They are both irrelevant and gross…things that make you go ….Buuuhhh! And I was a fan of both of those women at one time. Why would ANYONE want to keep a Pres in office that has killed many, MANY women and children with his MANY drones? They can’t possibly know what this guy is about because anyone with a mind can see where this guy’s taking the country and our foreign policies. The ignorance is disgusting!!

  • Guest

    Ellen can say what ever she want’s and not have to worry bout her carrier.. because she doesn’t have one..


    The willful ignorance of liberals is still shocking to me. I’m surprised they can even involuntarily breath without some master mind telling them how to do so.

    • Orpheus75

      man, you got that right! It really is a mental illness is it not?

  • dave lewis

    I wonder how Obama got elected the 1st time if everthing is about race?

    if individuals voted for Obama in 2008 they weren’t racist, but if they change their minds this time and don’t vote for him that proves they are racist?

    If down the road Bobby Jindal decides to run for president and the people who didn’t want Obama this election vote for him, they are racist?

    Jindal is more of a minority in the US than Obama, and he aint’ white.

    If Jindal runs (and is a minority) and blacks don’t vote for Jindal, would their non-votes for him be racist or they don’t like what he stands for?

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      He got elected, because McCain was such an unpromising candidate. He got elected, because he had ACORN working on his behalf, and on behalf of dead people on the voter rolls.

      If Jindal runs, and blacks who voted for Obama don’t vote for him, it will most likely be because they just didn’t go and vote at all.

      • dave lewis

        Not voting when there is a minority candidate on the ballot would therefore be racist.

        What if there are 2 non-whites vying for the same office. Not voting for 1 of them is racist.
