Like A Good Neighbor, Bill Clinton Is There

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]

Hola wonkerados.

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

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

    "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."

          "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."

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

  3. BaldarTFlagass

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

    Out trolling for some strange, no doubt.

    1. chascates

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

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

    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

      Mick Jagger sees David Bowie canoodling with Dennis Weaver:

      Hey, you, get off of McCloud!

  6. dijetlo

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

  7. fartknocker

    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.

    1. chascates

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

  8. Barb

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

  9. Mahousu

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

  10. dijetlo

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

    1. dijetlo

      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.

  11. Geminisunmars

    "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.

    1. bagofmice

      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.

    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…

    1. succalina

      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.

      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.

        1. FakaktaSouth

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

  13. Chow Yun Flat

    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.

  14. LetUsBray

    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.

  15. Dashboard Buddha

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

  16. HateMachine

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

  17. didgen

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

  18. ttommyunger

    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…
