Heroic Truth-Teller Mark Steyn: Big Bird Killed Our Ambassador In Libya

Here, let the National Review’s Mark Steyn tell you what’s wrong with Sesame Street. Basically: everything. It is why we are falling apart as a country. Babying children with images of friendly monsters leads to the widespread perception that the world outside your own home isn’t scary, and before you know it, it gets harder and harder to demonize gays and cling to xenophobic fantasies about the Other. The end result of all this open mindedness is that your ambassador gets killed by an al-Qaeda militant cell just outside Bengazi. So don’t blame Obama for that; blame Sesame Street! (no, rly, he is actually saying this.) Read more on Heroic Truth-Teller Mark Steyn: Big Bird Killed Our Ambassador In Libya…

Hillary Clinton Aide Invites Buzzfeed Reporter To Do Sexual Congress Elsewhere

In a shocking display of online rudeness unmatched since the time Ari Fleischer told Helen Thomas “Tits or GTFO,” Buzzfeed reports that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s occasionally-poetic* press aide, Philippe Reines, got into an email pissing match with Buzzfeed reporter Michael Hastings. The flame war evidently started in a heated discussion of Call of Duty: Black Ops CNN’s handling of the diary of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, which its reporters found in the debris of the US Consulate in Libya, and then escalated into an exchange of very undiplomatic language between the reporter and the press aide. The messages start off relatively civil, if prickly: Read more on Hillary Clinton Aide Invites Buzzfeed Reporter To Do Sexual Congress Elsewhere…

WND Has Creative Theory: Murdered Libyan Ambassador Was Gay, Just Like Obama

Pathetic waste of skin and neurons Dr. Jerome Corsi, PhD, has in recent months shifted from being a straight-out birther to claiming that Barack Obama is a flaming homosexualist, presumably because being a birther mostly just gets him merely a tired indulgent laugh these days, even from other wingnuts. So now, yeah, Obama is gay and spends all his time gaying up everything, especially the State Department and the diplomatic corps. So therefore, it’s perfectly reasonable for Corsi to ask a very simple question: DID OBAMA SEND A ‘GAY’ AMBASSADOR TO LIBYA? Note that “gay” is in quotes in the headline and throughout the article, presumably because there is either no such thing as gayness, or maybe because it it such a new term that it must be marked as slang, like the many street names for exotic drugs. Or does it have something to do with Dr. Corsi, PhD, constantly being “hopped up” on “goofballs”? WE ARE SIMPLY ASKING.

Stupidest Man On The Internet Thinks Obama Thanked Libyan President For Killing Our Diplomats

Jim Hoft, officially the stupidest man on the Internet, possesses analytical powers beyond the ken of the ordinary human. For instance, he is able to cut right through the liberal media’s silly distinctions between “Libyan mobs who killed Americans” and “The Libyan Government that America supports” to get to the simple truth: All Ayrabs BAD cauz America-killers. Take, for instance, his subtle explication of the situation in Libya. Where a lefty publication like the Washington Times might describe President Obama contacting Libya’s President Mohammed Magarief to “thank him for the cooperation the U.S. has received from the Libyan government in responding to the attacks on the U.S. Embassy” (OK, it was a consulate, but this is the Moonie Times, after all), Hoft cuts through the bullshit, ignores the trivial fact that the Libyan president has apologized for the attack, and gets right to the truthiness: See? Why even mention what kind of “support” the two presidents discussed, when you can simplify like that? Strunk and White would be proud of that headline’s economy and straightforwardness. (Even so, FoxNation somehow managed to out-idiot Jim Hoft: Their headline for a link to Hoft’s blog was “Obama Calls Libyan President to Thank Him After US Ambassador Murdered.”) Warning: Graphic images after the jump Read more on Stupidest Man On The Internet Thinks Obama Thanked Libyan President For Killing Our Diplomats…

Romney Camp’s Crisis Management Tip: Things And Their Opposites Can Both Be True

Faced with criticism for his amateurish reaction to the mob attacks on diplomats in Libya and Egypt, Mitt Romney’s campaign has been quietly asking Republicans to pretty please say something nice about him if they’re asked, or at least maybe they could deflect the question by explaining that this is all Obama’s fault, duh. CNN obtained a copy of the Romney campaign’s suggested talking points, which include sample questions and answers like these gems: “Did Governor Romney ‘jump the gun’ last night in releasing his statement?” “No. It is never too soon to stand up for American values and interests.” Read more on Romney Camp’s Crisis Management Tip: Things And Their Opposites Can Both Be True…

Gay Fired Romney Foreign Policy Spokesperson Pretty Sure Your Wonkette Responsible For All This Mess

Hey so remember yesterday when Mitt Romney fucked the dog with his response to this mishigas in Libya? Well your Wonket had a thought: what if His Lord High Hairgel had in fact not fired that one dude, Richard Grenell, for being a lover of men? Perhaps Richard Grenell (who people say was super good at his job, maybe?) could have saved him from his ignominious everything, by explaining to him “shut up”? Well, we ran this idea by the Twitter machine, and Richard Grenell himself responded! (Above. It is right there.)

NRO Simply Does Not Care For ‘Insane’ Questions About Romney’s Bizarre Libya Statement

So, you know how Willard Mittingston Wigglesworth Romney IV made a very important foreign policy statement about the murders of American diplomats in Libya, which kind of left even Republican foreign-policy experts gobsmacked at its tone-deaf injection of politics into a developing foreign crisis? Yeah, that thing. Well, now. Katrina Trinko at NRO’s “The Corner” would just like to point out that reporters asking questions about the crazy thing Romney said is the thing that is actually crazy, thank you very much: Read more on NRO Simply Does Not Care For ‘Insane’ Questions About Romney’s Bizarre Libya Statement…

Mitt Romney Is the Greatest Statesman of All Time

Before spending even a moment in his now-inevitable presidency, Mitt Romney today proved himself the greatest statesman of this age or any other. In a statement rich in nuance and diplomatic elan, Mitt Romney deftly tied the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya to the shortcomings of President Obama’s foreign policy. He stood by his assertion last night that Obama “sympathized” with those who attacked U.S. embassies. A lesser politician might have shied away from throwing political bombs at such a time, but Romney knows that at a time of tragedy and loss, the right response is to gain whatever campaign advantage you can, no matter how slight. Mystifyingly, some libtards have attacked Romney for his mature, thoughtful statement this morning criticizing President Obama’s foreign policy in the wake of the death of a United States ambassador. But the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin, voted Most Likely to Win a Pulitzer by me right now, has documented that the response to Romney’s statement has been overwhelmingly positive: Read more on Mitt Romney Is the Greatest Statesman of All Time…

Five U.S. Diplomats Dead In Egypt, Libya; Mitt Romney Was FRIST On The Internet!!!

Yesterday, violence in Egypt and Libya claimed the lives of five American diplomatic workers, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens. The important thing to remember in this time of crisis is that there’s still a Presidential election going on, and the campaigns MUST RESPOND. More importantly, they must do so FIRST. By way of background: protests began at the Egyptian and Libyan U.S. embassies yesterday, purportedly in response to a terrible anti-Islam movie by Terry Jones. To stave off further escalation, the Egyptian U.S. embassy put out the following statement: “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions,” the embassy said in a statement published online. Violence escalated after the statement’s issuance, one person died in Egypt, another four in Libya. Okay, sad part behind us, because Mitt Romney done stepped in it.

Sarah Palin Wishes Barack Obama Had A Bigger Penis

There seems to have been a small amount of tsuris in the Middle East yesterday, as a large lot of Libyans decided to kill some Americans. This makes most people show proper somberness and gravity. But not Sarah Palin! She is busy being very ladylike, by talking about the president’s penis. Let us go to her Facebook page, where all the world’s greatest statesmen gather to orate their profundities, and marvel at her good sense and wisdom!

Oh No France Is Socialist Again

Last night at 8pm not-your-time, two hours after the Belgian and Swiss media had already published election results and 30 minutes after Nicolas Sarkozy deleted his Facebook page, the French media announced that socialist François Hollande (great NYT bio) will be the next president of France. France is a country of 1,765,983,854 laws that are completely vague and contradict each other so that everyone can figure out how to break them, and it has rules about disclosing election results, and for some reason French media followed those rules to the letter. And now France will swear in Francois Hollande sometime between May 13 and 15, because French people like to be uncertain and tortured. At exactly one minute past 8pm, the world outside burst into celebration. Horns honked, firecrackers popped and people cheered. The tradition for French election after-parties is for the left to gather at La Bastille (the start of the French peasant revolution) and the right to gather at Place de la Concorde (where the guillotine was first erected in order to behead French royalty). Sarkozy called off his celebration at Concorde way before the final announcement. In contrast, so many people showed up at the Bastille, they had to shut down the nearby Metro stations.

Herman Cain Defends Theory That Presidents Are Supposed To Be Idiots

Okay, seriously, Herman Cain, just stop, stop right now, stop, STOP: “I’m not supposed to know anything about foreign policy. Just thought I’d throw that out,” he told a Journal-Sentinel reporter in the wake of the paper’s insane interview with him revealing that he is not entirely sure what “Libya” is. Because “knowing things” is not exactly the point of being President now, is it? Read more on Herman Cain Defends Theory That Presidents Are Supposed To Be Idiots…

Random Muslim Becomes Millionth ‘Al Qaeda No. 2′ After Robot Kills Him

Anything besides hurricane news today? Yes! The Pentagon or the CIA or whatever corporation runs the robot death drone planes that constantly rain bombs on brown people throughout the world just announced that about a week ago, one of those robot death drone planes dropped a couple of million-dollar bombs somewhere and one of those bombs blew up a random Muslim or Arab (both?) somewhere, and this guy … let’s see, “Atiyah Abd al-Rahman,” yep he turned out to be the latest “Number Two Al Qaeda,” perhaps the Assistant Chief Financial Officer or whatever, on August 22, when he was apparently killed.

Condi Rice Photos Are Moammar Gaddafi’s Dictator Porn of Choice

It turns out that possibly (?) ousted nutjob Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi kept a big ol’ catalogue of fap fuel made up of Condoleezza Rice photo scrapbooks hidden in his torture castle. “I support my darling black African woman. I admire and am very proud of the way she leans back and gives orders to the Arab leaders … Leezza, Leezza, Leezza. … I love her very much,” is apparently something he actually said during the first head of state interview we know of to be conducted while masturbating. It’s sort of natural, though, isn’t it, for Gaddafi to want to _______ Condi? (We cannot find a verb to put there that doesn’t turn our brain to poop, so go ahead and Mad Lib that one yourselves.) How many other ladies does Gaddafi know who got to run around the world with a top spot in a murderous regime and can keep a carefully maintained, famously weird hairdo? These two have “OKCupid profile match” written all over them, basically. Read more on Condi Rice Photos Are Moammar Gaddafi’s Dictator Porn of Choice…

McCain and Graham Pout U.S. Didn’t Get to Drop Enough Bombs on Libya

Aging lesbian power couple John McCain and Lindsey Graham are excited to hear about what appears to be the final collapse of the Qaddafi regime in Libya, although Sartorial Satan is still in hiding and Tripoli is not yet under full rebel control. Team McHamBiscuits nonetheless have an important nonsense neoconservative reflection on the whole saga: “we regret that this success was so long in coming due to the failure of the United States to employ the full weight of our airpower.” So sorry! to Libya, that the U.S. was not more involved in your conflict. U.S. military intervention in foreign conflicts is historically a top choice for fast conflict resolution, so really just a huge apology if Libya feels it missed out on that. Can John McCain still get some of Libya’s money, though? Read more on McCain and Graham Pout U.S. Didn’t Get to Drop Enough Bombs on Libya…

House Condemns Libya Conflict For Real Reasons Iraq War Was Awful

Ruh-roh, House lawmakers have found time in their busy day avoiding debt talks to scold Obama for sending a few shiny war toys over to Libya, where NATO is still busy bombing Dictator Death for whatever reason that makes him worse than the guy killing all the Syrians. Oil, probably? Yeah, so quit doing that, you’re wasting all our money, the House cried to Obama by a vote of 295-123. It’s been too long (3 months), and you’ve spent all this money ($716 million)! And what’s your problem with dictators, anyway? The Libyans didn’t ask you to come over and help them install a democracy might have asked you to help them overthrow their murderous dictator and his horrible sons to establish a democracy, but whatever, they are not freedom-loving Muslims they’re freedom-loving Muslims that House lawmakers don’t care about.

Obama’s Illegal Libyan War Costing $1.1 Billion, Biden Still After That $125 Tortoise Website

Libya, wherever that is, is costing America $1.1 Billion, just for the summer. At least $716 Million has already been thrown at Libya in the form of bombs. Somewhere, we’ve also got this figure that shows the Obama Administration has spent $2 Billion of the nearly $50 Billion budgeted and set aside to help people in foreclosure keep their homes — there’s enough to keep millions of people in their houses, in America, but for some mysterious reason the money does not get to the families, who continue to lose their homes. Oh well, at least these families are being bombed (yet) by U.S. robot drones and jet fighters, the way mommies and babies are being wholesale slaughtered in Yemen and Libya and Pakistan and Iraq and Afghanistan and … we think that’s all, right now? Except for Colombia and those such places. Wow. Read more on Obama’s Illegal Libyan War Costing $1.1 Billion, Biden Still After That $125 Tortoise Website…

Tea Party Ready To Dump John Boehner As House Speaker

Big-spending Washington elitist insider John Boehner has totally squandered his time as speaker of the House by failing to stop all government spending, so the teabaggers have launched a campaign to throw him out of Congress. “Replacing Nancy Pelosi with John Boehner isn’t much of an improvement,” says Tea Party Nation in a communique delivered to World Net Daily. “Boehner is the typical RINO … his true agenda is to be a deal maker.” Well duh!

NATO Murders Gaddafi’s Son, Three Grandchildren

While America’s useless young people were busy chanting brain-dead Neanderthal slogans in front of the White House on Sunday, angry mobs of uncivilized Africans attacked many of the Western embassies in Tripoli! Why would they do something so loathsome and disgusting? (Ha-ha, which “they” are we talking about, again?) Here is your “no fly zone,” neoliberal freaks: “NATO bombed Gaddafi’s family compound in an attack officials said killed the leader’s second youngest son and three grandchildren, ages six months to two years.” Wow, we showed those infants? In a different but equally “winning” maneuver, NATO decimated the Libyan Down’s Syndrome Society, which “prepares children with Down’s Syndrome up to the age of 6 to go to normal schools, giving them speech therapy, handicrafts and sports sessions and teaching them to read and write.” And the Internet is outraged! In fact, Papa John’s just announced on Twitter that they’ve “taken steps to make sure [their] advertising doesn’t appear on NATO’s website in the future.” It’s nice to know that people really care.

Pickup Truck Warns of Impending ‘Muslim Attack’

WHY WON’T AMERICA LISTEN TO THE PICKUP TRUCKS? Our nation’s pickup trucks are always alerting citizens to new threats, but nobody seems to listen, even though we do our part to bring them to the people. Things are getting so bad that it’s no longer enough to post messages on your truck; you now have to attach giant signs to let people know about the apocalypse that will be precipitated by Muslims overthrowing their dictators. It may be confusing that the same pickup trucks that were once proclaiming terrorists hate freedom are now afraid that “terrorists” want freedom, but, uh… hey, look at that Simba stuffed animal sitting up there. That’s pretty cool. Read more on Pickup Truck Warns of Impending ‘Muslim Attack’…

John McCain Back To Libya; Doesn’t Meet With Gaddafi This Time

According to the Obama administration, there are no American “boots” on the ground in Libya. But there are American orthopedic dress shows on the ground in Libya. John McCain latched onto one of our predator drones and parachuted down into the country Friday because he loves U.S. intervention in foreign wars so much he had to go see this one for himself. The last time he was there, Walnuts hung out with Muammar Gaddafi. But since a war started, McCain suddenly no longer likes this dictator, and spent his time meeting with the rebel troops instead. Yes, the rebel troops with whom the U.S. is supposed to have no coordination. Read more on John McCain Back To Libya; Doesn’t Meet With Gaddafi This Time…
