it's stupid, jihad!If you don’t know Jennifer Rubin, she’s the source of the heavy breathing you hear behind Mitt Romney at every event. She is the small trickle of sweat that runs down your back every time you think about criticizing outsourcing. She is fear and hatred and the realization that you left your phone in a public bathroom. And she has a brand new thing for Handsome Capitalist Mitt Romney to say about Obama in response to the mean, mean ad he didn’t make about Romney killing a woman with Masshole cancer!

The next option is to return the fire in kind. This is the president who hired 9/11 truther Van Jones. He’s the one who wanted to force a mosque on the ashes of Ground Zero, despite the revulsion of New Yorkers.

One, Van Jones is just goddamn handsome, and he could accuse my administration of mass murder any day of the week. (I kid, I kid, don’t do that on Fridays, that’s when I have indoor soccer.)

More importantly, Your Wonkette did not remember Obama forcing a mosque on the ashes of Ground Zero! I remember him tepidly supporting it, because there were Muslims in New York who had the right to build it and such. But I do not remember Barack Obama going to Ground Zero and lovingly sweeping up the ashes into a pile and then group-sexting Global Jihad to come build a mosque on those very ashes and maybe some teeth if he could find some.

Granted, we are very poor students of history here, and Jennifer Rubin seems to derive such unmitigated glee from thinking of ways to help our her Prince Mitt of Cranbrook. Let’s let her have this one, and go burn down the mosque so that it is no longer forced on us. That seems about right.

    someone need to drag Jenny Rubin to that strip club right below the 9/11 ruins.

    "He’s the one who wanted to force a mosque on the ashes of Ground Zero, despite the revulsion of New Yorkers."

    Um, it wasn't a mosque, it's several blocks away from Ground Zero, and the revulsion came by bigots who were almost all from far away from New York. Oh and the constitution says it was illegal to prevent its' being built you triply lying bigoted moran.

    • JohnnyQuick

      I was wondering if I should do some sort of web thing where I simply repost Rubin's 'work' and substitute the words 'Jews', 'Judaism', 'Synagogues' etc. for whenever she mentions Mosques or Muslims.

      But then I realized that would just seem like the website of a totally unrepentant Nazi.

  • Also, too, it was not a mosque and it was not at 'ground zero'.

    • Just details.

    • Billmatic

      WRONG!!!! It was the biggest mosque in the world and they were going to build it directly on ground zero with a big banner that said "FUCK AMERICA" strung over the entrance. At the groundbreaking ceremony they were going to read out each victim's name and make a fart noise after it. AND OBAMA WOULD BE UP IN THE FRONT LAUGHIN THE WHOLE TIME WEARIN A TURBAN. ALSO, MICHELLE OBAMA IS FAT.

          • Billmatic

            I love the fact that Obama, Jigga Man and Oprah have broken the glass ceiling and joined the Illuminati. It's called progress.

      • Haha! oh, and they were GONNA BURN THE CONSTUZIONS1

    • CommieLibunatic

      Facts are stupid things, my friend.

    • It was too a mosque, on top of Ground Zero, just like Obama used to sit right on his Pakistani roommate's face!!

      • Butch_Wagstaff

        Now you're just trying to get me excited.

    • There is one flaw in your argument….

  • Rubin is Mitten's mostest, favoritest saccharine beat sweetener ever.

    • sewollef

      I'm thinking Rubin is Mitten's moistest…

  • Wait, you don't recall when Obama sacrificed 72 virgins on the site of Ground Zero to sanctify it for the mosque? It was in all the papers.

    • The whole Rockettes chorus line??!!!!!??

      Oh, you said virgins, so never mind.

    • zippy_w_pinhead

      Good thing the Trekkies were in town that weekend…

    • emmelemm

      And by sacrificed, you just mean de-virginized, right?

  • I do wonder about the Priority's USA ad, as there are better arguments to make, and this just distracts. However, I'm surprised that Republicans think this helps them at all when Romney is lying his own ass off, and not some Super PAC on his behalf. Of course, since Romney has been doing this since 2008, maybe they forget that nothing he says is truthful.

  • Billmatic

    That particular picture made me think perhaps we are suffering under a jihad of the stupid declarin holy struggle against all those pretentious smarts!!!

  • SorosBot

    Also, I'm pretty sure Van Jones is not a 9/11 truther but a victim of slander painting him as one. What's next, is Rubin going to claim that Shirley Sherrod really hates white people?

    • Well, duh, Sherrod sounds foreigny.

    Oh, but don't you remember, in the post-9/11 world you're either with us or against us? If you aren't 100% all-out protesting the Ground Zero Mosque (which is neither a mosque nor at Ground Zero, but I digress) 24/7/365, then you're obviously in favor of it. Which makes you every bit as bad as the terrorists who flew the planes into the buildings. If you so much as take a 2-minute break from hating Islam so that you can use the bathroom, you're not a real American and should be deported at once.

    • SorosBot

      And, you know, only an idiotic bigot would think there was something wrong with putting a mosque near ground zero.

      • Jus_Wonderin

        Also, too, Muslims died along with Christians and Jews and Hindus and…………………………….oh, right, we are only a Christian nation. ARghhsh!!!

    Wait — is Jennifer Rubin accusing Mitt Romney of beating his children and drowning kittens? Parse that sentence and come up with a different explanation. Kittens, people.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Wow. Now I've read that in two places on the Internet!

      • You'll notice that nobody in the Romney campaign is denying it, either.

    • SorosBot

      He has, however, not just been accused of but admitted to torturing his dog.

    • So is she saying that putting much of his money into that international child-prostitution ring like some people on the internet say he might have done is a false accusation? Fine, but let's hear him deny it.

    • arihaya

      It is irresponsible not to speculate.

      We need to hire a special prosecutor and spend millions of dollars investigating this looking for anything, like a b.j….

    Obama also personally built a mosque in Murfreesboro, TN, less than 2,000 miles away from Ground Zero.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Lucky for Real America, Mitt Romney was able to burn it to the ground before any real damage was done.

    • Less than 911 miles away! Think of that symbolism!

    • Butch_Wagstaff

      There's been some controversy about mosques opening up in Henrico Co here. The major argument against the opening of one of the mosques is based on it's size. 31,000 sq. ft. Seems like some are "concerned" about the traffic that might generate. Another argument I've heard is that, because they are mosques, they may be targets of arson and vandalism.
      Well, say anything to avoid coming right out & saying you don't want Muslims in your neighborhood because then you'd just sound like a bigot.

  • WhatTheHeck

    Obama is frequently seen in the embrace of Saudi royalty.

    OK OK. It wasn't beating HIS children, it was harrassing and attacking somebody else's kid with scissors. And we admit, he didn't drown kittens. He tortured his dog.

    So Mittsbitches, does that work to correct the record?

    • rickmaci

      Editorial sure pitched a wicked snark ball on that one.

  • GemlikeFlame

    Honestly, I find many New Yorkers revulsive, present company excepted, of course.

    But the Park51 project wasn't a mosque, though it served as an overflow space for a nearby TriBeCa mosque. It was envisioned as an Islamic community center. But I'm having trouble understanding why a nice Jewish girl like Ms. Rubin would not know all that. After all, her sisters would have nothing to do with me, which bespeaks some form of genetic or cultural common sense.

    And really, aren't we just talking about two slightly different varieties of goy?

    • Tundra Grifter

      Just for the record. A mosque is not consecrated ground like a church or, I would think, most temples or other houses of worship around the world. Since God is everywhere, there's nothing special about a mosque. It is a community center, open to all – with no pews or special places for wealthy members of the congregation.

      A mosque has a "mihrab" – a niche or wall indentation that shows the direction to Mecca. Many mosques have one or more minarets – but then, many older college and university buildings have towers, so there really isn't anything unique about that.

He is such a good looking man in person, oh my, tall and really nicely dressed as well.

    I live a few blocks from the prospective Islamic cultural center in downtown Manhattan, and have never heard anyone in the neighb complaining about its location or right to be built. If anything, it's a ho hum non-issue (this ain't Kansas, Dorothy). Many local folks I've talked to since didn't even know the bigoted phony protest was going on until, in real life at least, it blew over a couple days later (I vaguely recall it being vaca season). I and others wish we'd known about it beforehand — we would have held a sweet and sizeable counter-protest which would have out-numbered those cretins 100 to 1. Maybe that's why it was barely publicized beforehand and everyone involved was bused or Lear Jetted in by Murdoch and his scumbag cronies.

      This President wants the vast majority of Americans who have not been born into wealth, who actually work, don't hide their money and actually pay taxes to have a chance.
