Jon Stewart On Latte Salute Poutrage: ‘F-ck You And All Your False Patriotism’ (Video)

It's right there in Federalist #51
It is a time of war, and the executive and legislative branches aren’t playing well together. Congress itself is divided — can the president act militarily without specific congressional authorization, or must he be hamstrung by partisan squabbles? Jon Stewart addressed our current constitutional puzzle on Thursday’s Daily Show: Read more on Jon Stewart On Latte Salute Poutrage: ‘F-ck You And All Your False Patriotism’ (Video)…

Guy Who Dissed The Troops Five Years Ago Writes About Something Else, Wingnuts Outraged

OMG you guise!!! There is a man out there in America who does not love The Troops! And he is still allowed to write things for a living! Even though The Troops have bled and died for his right to have written a blog post titled “Fuck the Troops” in 2008! And Politico just published an article by the guy, on a completely different topic — Murphy is also the guy who prank-called Scott Walker in 2011, pretending to be David Koch, which is what the article is about. Murphy’s Politico piece doesn’t even contain the word “fuck” at all, which is something of an achievement for anyone writing about that fucking fuckhead Scott Walker. And so the professional journalists at Dead Breitbart’s Shelter For The Terminally Enraged did a massively butthurt exposé of the terrible things that Ian Murphy wrote in 2008. Sure, they mention the piece Politico ran Monday, once, but mostly the Breitbart piece is a copypaste of the most button-pushing parts of Murphy’s “virulent anti-American soldier screed,” aimed at trashing Politico of course — Murphy has now been transmogrified into “Politico reporter Ian Murphy” or “Politico columnist Ian Murphy,” and by god, Politico or any other publication that runs anything else by Murphy is going to hear about this forever, because raining perpetual wrath upon the Unholy is pretty much these guys’ mission statement.

As it turns out, WALNUTS! is winning his battle against actuarial science quite handily! Here he is on the floor of the Senate, looking more alive than Mitt Romney ever has, just cold yelling that everybody is A Idiot, especially Republicans.

Nation’s Troops Up in Arms That Barack Obama Had Them Kill Osama Bin Laden

Remember swift-boating? Of course you do, now that the media labels every single attack against a political candidate swift-boating, no matter what it’s about or whether it’s true. But once a upon a time (2004, to be exact), swift-boating meant something. Specifically, it meant lying about John Kerry’s military record and trashing him as a traitor for the very things that made him a decent guy. Now a group of Republican activists concerned nonpartisan citizens want us to know how dangerous President Obama is to our national security because of that time he had our military hunt down and kill our greatest enemy. Wait, what? Read more on Nation’s Troops Up in Arms That Barack Obama Had Them Kill Osama Bin Laden…

John McCain Pretty Much Just Criticizing Wounded Troops Now

Rapidly decomposing statesman John McCain is still super annoyed about the DADT repeal, so much so that he has had little fits all over the place for Dana Milbank to witness. “Today’s a very sad day. The commandant of the United States Marine Corps says when your life hangs on the line, you don’t want anything distracting,” McCain said, ramping up his best Miss Teen South Carolina impression. “I don’t want to permit that opportunity to happen and I’ll tell you why. You go up to Bethesda Naval Hospital, Marines are up there with no legs, none. You’ve got Marines at Walter Reed with no limbs.” So those torsos at Walter Reed got their limbs blown off because they were distracted, whereas troops who still have their appendages have kept a constant watch on military stuff? Interesting. Read more on John McCain Pretty Much Just Criticizing Wounded Troops Now…

George W. Bush Volunteers For Another Icky Hand Job

We are fairly certain that George W. Bush is currently touching stuff in Haiti, but new photos have surfaced that suggest maybe he is also still in Texas shaking hands with troops returning from war, via CNN Hologram. Isn’t it special that George Bush is willing to touch other people, even though he hates it so much? Read more on George W. Bush Volunteers For Another Icky Hand Job…

Wikileaks Shows Afghanistan War Even Worse Than You Thought

Heroic invisible Internet website Wikileaks.org just released piles of secret U.S. and NATO documents about the decade-long War in Afghanistan, and it’s not a pretty picture. Every grim assumption is confirmed: Our “ally” Pakistan and our “enemy” the Taliban are one and the same, civilians are being massacred by our robot death planes at an appalling rate, and the inept Afghan Army seems to serve little use beyond providing disguises and equipment to be used by rebels attacking U.S. troops and bases. But at least the Obama Administration has responded to the leaked documents in an honest, forthright manner … haha, just kidding. Obama’s national security adviser put out a statement attacking Wikileaks and the newspapers for releasing the damning documents.

How Did Senate’s Vote Against Oil-Lover Murkowski’s Bill Actually Murder America’s Troops?

The Senate defeated the Dirty Energy Industry’s sleazy attempt to prevent any kind of enforcement of gross carbon emissions, hooray, the ads on Wonkette worked! The AP had a pretty good single-sentence summary of what happened: “The defeated resolution would have denied the Environmental Protection Agency the authority to move ahead with the rules, crafted under the federal Clean Air Act.” But what really happened is Barack Obama literally pissed on the graves of dead veterans, at Arlington National Cemetery … and he did this right after Memorial Day!

Devil Cuts Down Jesus Cross In Mojave National Preserve

The Supreme Court and the Obama Administration and the Troops/Veterans and Jesus all got together to try to keep an illegal goddamned religious statue in Mojave National Preserve, but guess what? The Devil is stronger, because He Is Legion, and the dumb/hideous Mojave Cross Made of Plumbing Pipe was cut down by Heroes and now the Baby Jesus cries. This is actual breaking news, right now, and it’s especially hilarious because there are no reporters within a hundred miles of the actual Scene of the Crime/Heroism.

Gross Old Eric Massa Always Trying To Hump His Male Staff

Remember the great Congressman Eric Massa? The disgusting grope-y Democrat resigned last month because everybody finally got tired of him trying to hump every man he saw. Massa’s brief time in Congress was basically an endless attempt to fuck young dudes, mostly his own staffers forced to live with him in a Washington townhouse. His entire congressional existence was dedicated to getting male staffers alone with him in a hotel room, so he could grope them and beg for sex. But this is not even the most disgusting thing about Eric Massa, because lots of sad old fat slobs beg youngsters for sexytime and plenty of awful bosses sexually harass their employees. No, the foulest part of this tale involves a dead American soldier. Read more on Gross Old Eric Massa Always Trying To Hump His Male Staff…
