Is it possible to look at this book‘s cover and not laugh? They should sell posters of this. As they say on teh inturwebs, “I LOL’ed”.
Glad you asked. They’re investigating whether or not the military should have used codename “Geronimo” in there hunt for bin Laden.
Me thinkum they not want do real work, Kimosabe.
Seriously, this is the sort of thing that only a handful of folks with degrees in “Native American Studies” would give a damn about… and I doubt many of them are such Hot House flowers that this would be affect them in any real way.
Says the Atlantic Monthly : “Americans are quite pessimistic these days, and this gloomy photo of President Obama sitting with advisers in a dark room probably won’t cheer them up.”
Political humor website Wonkette has long been trending toward nihilistic snark for snark’s sake, but Jack Stuef’s column “honoring” Trig Palin’s birthday is about the most irredeemably vile, unfunny thing I’ve ever seen. As if jokes about Trig’s Down Syndrome aren’t bad enough on their own, Stuef goes the extra mile to pen kneeslappers about incest, child rape, and fetal alcohol syndrome. I don’t want to reproduce too much of it here, but this quote is fairly representativerepresentative: “Today is the day we come together to celebrate the snowbilly grifter’s magical journey from Texas to Alaska to deliver to the America the great gentleman scholar Trig Palin. Is Palin his true mother? Or was Bristol? (And why is it that nobody questions who the father is? Because, either way, Todd definitely did it.)”

… they simply project their hypocrisy onto Republicans. Neat.
It’s, like, totally bad for John Yoo to praise Obama, cuz he really wouldn’t do it unless he thought it would make Democrats totally feel bad. Or something.
Quote from Our Maximum Leader, ca. 2007 :
“The president does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
Sarah Palin pronounced “skirmish” oddly. Given that there’s lots of actual news going on, it’ll be fun to see how many times it will be mentioned.
Those following President Obama’s prepared remarks during a speech in Milwaukee, Wisconsin Monday were thrown a bit of a curveball when it came to a description of his critics:
“Some powerful interests who had been dominating the agenda in Washington for a very long time and they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, but it’s true,” he told a crowd largely consisting of union members.
The line was a rare departure from a president who normally sticks close to the text of his speech and may forecast a more aggressive tone on the part of Obama as the midterms approach.
The address is the first of two speeches this week in which Obama will try and frame his administration’s response to the recession, less than two months ahead of midterm elections where Democratic majorities in the House and Senate are on the ropes. – CNN
Call this man a WAHmbulence!
Seriously, Barry — stick to the teleprompter…
OK… the political correctness is getting out of hand… we have to wait or a jury trial to call a catfish a catfish?
Sooooooo…… now he thinks that he’s unpopular in Israel because his middle name is “Hussein”! Now never mind that Israel was overjoyed to sign a peace treaty with King Hussein of Jordan… Obama is just so, like, awesome. What other explanation is there?

In a desperate attempt to play the race card, New York Times typist Kate Zernike claimed the following :
He then mocked what he described, with a Chris Rock voice, as “diversity,” including, he said, college classes on “cyber feminism” and “what it means to be a feminist new black man.”
Here is a link to the video, the bit mentioned is at ~ 3:30. At the point, the speaker sounds more like famous African American actor, Steve Buscemi than Chris Rock.
What do you think?
Here’s Black-and-proud Steve Buscemi –
And here’s Chris Rock –
And here’s a white guy trying to do Chris Rock –
Ladies and Gentlemen of the jury, I think that the verdict is crystal clear.
Just relaxing on teh interwebs and enjoying a review of ” The Outrageous Okona” …
