Because the Obama Administration hates Iran’s freedoms so much, it has rescinded permission for U.S. embassies to invite Iranian diplomats to their Fourth of July parties. Come on, parents, don’t take it out on the kids! Robert Gibbs said the change in policy came about “given the events of the past many days,” referring to Mark Sanford’s cumming. State Department spokesperson Ian Kelly, however, “said no Iranians have accepted” the invitations anyway and “indicated that the U.S. saw little reason for them to, given the political crisis over their disputed presidential election.” Again: maybe they would have accepted if you had promised a Super Soaker war. They’re just like water cannons! [AP]

  1. I hope this dis-invite doesn’t include hot Argentinians who’ve just had their Appalachian trails hiked by Republican governors. That would be tragic.

  2. That sucks for the Iranian deputy foreign minister’s wife, since she had just purchased the sweetest little stars ans stripes chador, just for the occasion. And it’s non-returnable. How can they do this to her? It’s not like she can even reuse it, except maybe to burn at a rally, “Down with the infidels” etc. Hmph.

  3. The Iranians weren’t interested in coming anyway; after all, their idea of a party is Super Soakers filled with human blood.

    What? Too early?

  4. John McCain is at this very moment complaining that this isn’t enough and that Obama also needs to defriend them on Facebook, tell jokes about them behind their back at the party, and order pizzas to their embassies without them knowing about it.

  5. Well isn’t that just great! Now we need to find someone else to bring the potato salad and police batons.

    Anyone have the Irish embassy phone number handy?

  6. Now we’ll have to cancel the wet burka contest! (Hey, call Mossad, I think that soaker’s loaded with heavy water…)

  7. Well, there goes our local ambassadors’ hopes of being invited to the annual Giving Thanks to Allah for the Glorious Victory Over the Lickspittle Lackey of the Great Satan and the Overthrow of the Nest of Spies.

  8. Damn, and I was so counting on them inviting BirthermuzlinkenyantelepromptrsNObama back for the big Eid after Ramadan just to enjoy the faux outrage of the GOP/wingnuts.

  9. Why wouldn’t they jump at the chance to wolf down some Hebrew Nationals and discuss the right of the people to dissolve a tyrannical government, followed by a series of explosions?

  10. [re=347450]lawrenceofthedesert[/re]:
    Nothing kills a party like a radiological alarm. Folks in stars n’ stripes would reflexively look skyward.

  11. They don’t want to come sing along with us our happy ditty about the rockets’ red glare? And bombs bursting in air? While we drink cold brewskis and scarf down wieners? What’s wrong with them peeps, where’s their sense of fun?

  12. yo, the emails have arrived!

    “Two, mutual feelings …. You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light – but hey, that would be going into sexual details …”

    More to, uh, come…

  13. [re=347469]facehead[/re]: ““Hate America” parade.”

    Just as well I don’t go. I never know what color holiday spirit sweater to wear.

  14. Talk about micro managing. Why not let the ambassadors do the diplomacy, or just admit those embassies are a shame and close most of them. Appoint prominent local Americans as ambassadors, like other thrifty countries do. Or just let the US military do everything, which seems to be what is going on anyway. But seriously, an embassy job would seem to be almost completely worthless.

    BTW, if you really want to get those Muslims, make them watch from the vegan table while you roast a suckling pig and drink craft beer. Ha!
