The Sky is Falling!

28 May

This is a great comment from a Gawker thread regarding the President of the United States and how the Fox News Republicans have dealt with him:

There’s been no major scandal because of all the little ones that Republican pundits and talk show hosts keep pushing. They’re lobbing spitballs at the President instead of saving up for a pipe bomb.

Seriously:

Arugula
Mustard
Birth Certificate
Teleprompter
Ipod gift to the Queen
Flag at Ground Zero
Flag Pin
Expensive Hotel meals in NYC
$200 million/day trip to India
Michelle not wearing at hat in Ireland
Not saluting or doing the hand over heart thing during the anthem
Showing up too early to a disaster
Showing up too late to a disaster

etc…

Half of them are false, half of them are unimportant. They’ve wasted their ammo on bullshit and are now screwed. Even with a major scandal, no one of consequence will believe you or pay attention.

They’re like the screw up in class. They start playing pranks on the teacher. The first few times it’s funny. You are conditioned to make fun of the teacher. It’s us against her. After a while, it gets old, so you stop laughing. Then she helps you on your homework or gives you extra credit and you start to feel bad for her when she sits on a tack for the 20th time because she can’t turn around and slap the kid. Eventually everyone turns on the the kid who lacked the social insight to know when the tide turned and everyone realized he was a bully.

    Meanwhile he comically annihilates an arrogant ass like Trump kicking his yapping Pekingese ass to the curb for all of DC to enjoy and the next day he stakes his career on 2 dozen SEALs who prove him right. Trump disabled, Osama with 2 bullet holes in him dumped like a bag of shit into the Indian Ocean. Scoreboard bitches. They’ve got nothing and they are about to put on a 3 ring freakshow until they anoint someone stupid enough and Koch Brother financed enough to run against him in 2012. Bachman, Palin, Mitt, the isle of Lilliput’s finest hour yet.

    You may laugh, but it’s important not to overlook or underestimate the existential threat to our country – nay world – nay our very way of life – posed by the potus’ personal preference for arugula and dijon mustard, to name just two outrages. We should never dismiss out of hand the hysterical vigilance of such stalwarts as Rush Limbaugh or Michelle Malkin, among others. Certainly there are those here who would echo such sentiments.

    Arugula and dijon mustard? I’ll bet he likes Pouilly-Fuisse as well. What about Budweiser and boiled beef, eh? My forefathers in Puritan New England LIKED boiled beef and ale, and they exterminated the Pequot. None of this limp-wristed pantywaist stuff for them, by jeepers.

    Yeah, why can’t Obama eat manly food like Dubya ?

    Arugula and Dijon? – sounds foreign to me.

    It’s astonishing to find that in this day and age people actually believe this kind of material. So much for hope and change. Who has time for tv anyways?

    The precccupation with the Prez’ shortcomings and guffaws provides convenient – and necessary cover – for the village idiot array of contenders for his job on the other side which is best described by a title of one of H.L. Mencken’s works – on politics, no less – called “A Carnival of Buncombe.”

    I find this stuff far more entertaining than items of substance. Keynes flashbacks, Guantanamo still open, Iraq and Afghanistand still happenning (and throw in Lybia for kicks like a trick being trumped), Patriot Act re-authorized, jobless recovery, record deficits, entitelments ready to collapse Just Like in Europe… this stuff is BORING. Dijon and Arugula? Hell, you can’t even SAY that without a grin. I gotta wonder, though… nobody making fun of vinaigrette? WTF? Who can say, “Balsamic” with a straight face?

    How about Michelle’s “big guns” (arms)?

    How about we support returning America’s Borders to pre-1959, so Hawaii wouldn’t be a state and this moron can’t be President. What’s good for Israel (In odumbo’s opinion) should be good for us as well.
