Like A Good Neighbor, Bill Clinton Is There

by Sulagna Misra

Ai Weiwei wants to give you twitter food for thoughtRomney puts his foot in his mouth, Amazon and Apple get dirty, and China hates Kanye West. What else is new?
  • Romney creates an app that misspells America. He just makes it so easy, doesn’t he? [Mashable]
  • Amazon and Apple have the “dirtiest” “clouds,” according to Greenpeace. The more the world changes, the more it stays the same. [Washington Post]
  • China is cracking down on its bloggers — usually consisting of rights advocates and rebel artists — in new and exciting ways. Meanwhile, in our country, the president tweets regularly — and it always sort of looks like the guy sitting across him from is going “and now you click the button where it says ‘tweet,’ sir.” [Slate]
  • Here is an article on what great neighbors the Clintons make in their town of Chappaqua, New York. Yes, it must be nice to have famous, rich people in your town — probably especially Bill, we don’t know, read the story! (But don’t you think it’s probably especially Bill?) [New York Times]

SLUGGO! Good morning. Enjoying the weather?

Yes, Amercia needs Mitt!

jaytingle May 30, 2012 at 10:08 am

It's pronounced MRSA.

chascates May 30, 2012 at 10:12 am

We're on our way to Amerika!

SorosBot May 30, 2012 at 10:20 am

Hey, I remember that miniseries; good old-fashioned Cold War paranoia made when the Soviets were just on the verge of giving up.

biblioteq_tress May 30, 2012 at 11:11 am

You mean Amerkia.

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 9:56 am

It's a big fucking deal!

el_donaldo May 30, 2012 at 9:58 am

aggh. you got me while I was editing after having actually read the link.

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:09 am

HEHEHEHEHEH

Biel_ze_Bubba May 31, 2012 at 9:21 am

Jump first, look later? You takes your chances. LOL!

"I’d like it also to say that the president has to spend at least three years working in IT before he could become president of the United States."

UW8316154 May 30, 2012 at 10:04 am

that's the United States of Amercia, MM! Jeesh, get it right.

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:09 am

Amercia mercia me…

OneYieldRegular May 30, 2012 at 10:12 am

Um, did you try plugging it in?

Generation[redacted] May 30, 2012 at 11:11 am

"Our economy is broken!"
"Did you try turning it off and on again?"

biblioteq_tress May 30, 2012 at 11:15 am

"Oh, you have? Then turn it off again and leave it off for two minutes before you turn it back on. That didn't work? Are you sure? You are using the right password? I'm going to need to transfer you to someone with dual PhDs in electrical engineering and semiotics. I'm putting you on hold."

UW8316154 May 30, 2012 at 11:35 am

Are your CAPLOCKS on?

el_donaldo May 30, 2012 at 9:57 am

Romney's app misspells America? Biden made an app that drops inappropriate swears in all your texts.

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:16 am

See above :-)

MarionNYNY May 30, 2012 at 9:57 am

I had a bad case of amercia once, but the anti-biotics knocked it right out.

BaldarTFlagass May 30, 2012 at 9:58 am

"Mr. Clinton… is a regular walker around town"

Out trolling for some strange, no doubt.

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

Wears a long dirty raincoat and sneakers without socks.

chascates May 30, 2012 at 10:13 am

"Hi, there. Those are some really good looking donuts you have for sale there. Too bad I didn't bring my wallet."

Chill_Bill May 30, 2012 at 9:59 am

Why does Willard hate AMERCIA so much?

comrad_darkness May 30, 2012 at 10:02 am

Amercia! Isn't that what Italian kids scream instead of Uncle! when they want their older sibling to get off them?

MosesInvests May 30, 2012 at 10:02 am

"Where'd you get those coconuts?"
"We found them."
"What, in Amercia?!"

BaldarTFlagass May 30, 2012 at 10:05 am

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know what the fuck a "cloud" is
at all

Baconzgood May 30, 2012 at 10:06 am

U.A.S.U.A.S. U.A.S. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

freakishlywrong May 30, 2012 at 10:07 am

Has Mitt blamed Obama yet for screwing up Amercia?

ManchuCandidate May 30, 2012 at 10:07 am

Greenpeace yells at Cloud

Doktor StrangeZoom May 30, 2012 at 10:19 am

Mick Jagger sees David Bowie canoodling with Dennis Weaver:

Hey, you, get off of McCloud!

dijetlo May 30, 2012 at 10:08 am

I want to live in Amercia
everyones white, no divercia
Assholes are tight in Amercia
Sister-wives never fight, no divorcia!

fartknocker May 30, 2012 at 10:08 am

Completely OT: Did anyone besides me watch the FLOTUS on Jon Stewart last night? She's impressive, smart, and articulate. What a pleasant and compassionate woman.

chascates May 30, 2012 at 10:14 am

Just a front. She's actually trying to get us to eat better and be nicer to each other. SOCIALIZMZ.

HempDogbane May 30, 2012 at 10:30 am

Now FLOTUS of Amercia !

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:36 am

Why is she politicizing comedy?????

UW8316154 May 30, 2012 at 10:08 am

Bill Clinton a vegan?? Wonders never cease.

ManchuCandidate May 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

It sounds like the Clintons get invited to all the key parties.

Barb May 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

There is no mention of Bill going to the cigar store. This is good news for everyone but late night comedy show hosts.

biblioteq_tress May 30, 2012 at 11:17 am

When he became a vegan, he switched to carrot sticks.

Barb May 30, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Good one!

Mahousu May 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

I see Bill Clinton is now a vegan. Perhaps he is enjoying a little Kortney with his vegetables?

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:14 am

He's moved onto vegana?

ifthethunderdontgetya May 30, 2012 at 10:11 am

China is cracking down on its bloggers — usually consisting of rights advocates and rebel artists — in new and exciting ways. Meanwhile, in our country, the president

is cracking down on whistle-blowers and journalists, and spying on everyone without a warrant.

BaldarTFlagass May 30, 2012 at 10:17 am

And killing them with drones, as I understand it.

prommie May 30, 2012 at 10:26 am

Fire drones?

dijetlo May 30, 2012 at 10:14 am

Can we at least get a " My ripe seed is deliciously potent" alt text on that picture?
Standards, people….

actor212 May 30, 2012 at 10:14 am

Or, as Jan Brady would say, "Amercia, Amercia, Amercia"

BaldarTFlagass May 30, 2012 at 10:18 am

I don't think the new kid has attended alt-text training yet.

dijetlo May 30, 2012 at 10:44 am

You'd think our new communist overlord (and I think I speak for all of us when I say, we welcome her) would have formed some kind of bloggers union with an apprenticeship program.

Geminisunmars May 30, 2012 at 10:21 am

"Amercia"
"Greenpeace’s report noted that understand the true efficiency of so-called green data center is quite hard and that metrics that many companies rely, such as Power Usage Effectiveness, are ineffective."
I seeing that proofing anything is lost arc in amercia.

bagofmice May 30, 2012 at 12:40 pm

There's a reason why "mobile" processors are being fitted into servers being racked into datacenters. The power management features reduces cooling costs, but is a constraint to deployment and availability.

SorosBot May 30, 2012 at 10:22 am

"Romney puts his foot in his mouth" is pretty much a daily headline these days.

deanbooth May 30, 2012 at 12:15 pm

Does this make him a shoe in?

"Mmmmm, no tongue!" — Krusty

Nostrildamus May 30, 2012 at 12:40 pm

At least it's a white foot.

Doktor StrangeZoom May 30, 2012 at 10:22 am

Oh yeah? Well, Obama thinks Amercia has 57 states!

randcoolcatdaddy May 30, 2012 at 10:25 am

Amercia … for the treatment of minor delusions of self importance and inadequacy. Use of Americia in some patients has caused minor side effects including night sweats, nausea, weight loss, panic attacks, and impotency. Amercia … for a brighter tomorrow…

succalina May 30, 2012 at 2:02 pm

Women should stay 100ft away from Amercia at all times. If pregnant, do not touch Amercia, as it may make your fetus a future socialist slut.

Amercia is made from nationalistic insecurities, cognitive dissonance, and the love of ignorance, greed and wars started for no reason. Contains almost 300million grams of haterade and douchebaggery.

Biel_ze_Bubba May 31, 2012 at 9:30 am

If your voter's regret lasts more than 4 years, call a Democrat.

prommie May 30, 2012 at 10:26 am

Hey, you, get off my dirty, dirty cloud.

FakaktaSouth May 30, 2012 at 10:30 am

Don't you imagine smoke breaks with Bill Clinton are more fun than normal people smoke breaks? I wonder if he goes and sits on the deck with cigars – or if Hil looks at him sideways every time. Grudge toting girls, man, I tell ya. ANYway, seems like there'd be something, I don't know, extra? about the whole thing. Dang. Now I want to smoke.

prommie May 30, 2012 at 10:38 am

I heard that it was Gore who was always holding. True gossip.

FakaktaSouth May 30, 2012 at 10:41 am

Oh god, can you imagine Al Gore all stoned, droning (haha, get it??) on and on – that shit would be HILARIOUS.

prommie May 30, 2012 at 10:50 am

Thats what I heard, that he was!

James Michael Curley May 30, 2012 at 10:52 am

Gore was in Vietnam in Bien Hoa. Good shit down south.

Chow Yun Flat May 30, 2012 at 10:33 am

Chinese microblogging sites seem to consist of speculation over which movie starlet has had her breasts enhanced, who is about to divorce whom and why a wealthy seeming businessman is actually broke.

Nothing like our own robust discussions protected by the First Amendment.

prommie May 30, 2012 at 10:44 am

OT, but OMG, look at this wide-stance tea-partier: http://features.rr.com/photo/03du5ZKc0Nb20?q=Texa

Chow Yun Flat May 30, 2012 at 10:55 am

Ted Cruz is just so precious.

Dashboard Buddha May 30, 2012 at 10:59 am

Fabulous!

NellCote71 May 30, 2012 at 10:52 am

We have as much right to pansy-pouting tea-partiers as any other state.

LetUsBray May 30, 2012 at 10:58 am

Clearly misspelling the name of the country he aspires to lead is a desperate pander by Willard to shore up the Quayle-Shrub-Palin Profound Dumbfuck demographic that should be in his pocket by now.

Dashboard Buddha May 30, 2012 at 11:00 am

Hell, Facebook is already doing itself some censoring and the government isn't hassling it yet. Maybe they like it.

Pop_Socket May 30, 2012 at 11:34 am

Mitt Rmoney for President of Amercia!

iburl May 30, 2012 at 11:40 am

There goes Mitt again, trying to find common ground with the idiot GOP base.

HateMachine May 30, 2012 at 12:06 pm

No snark, that image of Bill Clinton on the couch raptly watching municipal board meetings on tv is inexplicably adorable.

didgen May 30, 2012 at 12:19 pm

I'm just glad to see that Seamus has found a good home with the Clintons. No more riding on the woof!

marinmaven May 30, 2012 at 12:32 pm

OMG! SPOILER ALERT!! Romney is going to sell our country to the land of his ancestors — Mexico!

gurukalehuru May 30, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Hey, wait a minute, you know who else had a lab retriever named Seamus?

Biel_ze_Bubba May 31, 2012 at 9:26 am

Real Amercians will all vote for Mitt.

ttommyunger May 31, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Mittens is always putting foot in the mouth, Bubba is always looking to put his dick in a mouth. So different, yet so much in common…
