Conservative Blog Creatures Accuse Obama of Destroying Ground Zero Flag

On Sunday, President Obama oversaw the only thing conservatives ever wanted to happen in the world: the death of Osama bin Laden. But accepting that the commander in chief of our nation’s military could have a hand in this has threatened some major cognitive dissonance on the right, because doesn’t that guy seem a little foreign and a lot liberal, thus unable to like the United States of America? Thankfully, ABC News’ Jake Tapper mentioned something on Twitter about a flag being lowered yesterday evening at the World Trade Center site, which could only mean OBAMA WENT TO GROUND ZERO SO HE COULD BURN AMERICAN FLAGS, according to certain conservative bloggers who have a professional duty to misinterpret things.

WSJ Writer Says Obama Is Allowed To Visit Ground Zero Now

“President Barack Obama will visit Ground Zero in New York City on Thursday for the first time as president,” starts off Carol E. Lee in the Wall Street Journal. Okay, sure, that makes sense! Troops just killed Osama bin Laden under Obama’s command. Probably as fair a time as any to drop by there. But then: “Mr. Obama has been a controversial figure in what many consider hallowed ground.” A controversial figure? He’s the president of the fucking United States. He didn’t fly a plane into the buildings, did he? Last time we checked, he did not, but it’s been a while since we checked, as that subject is pretty depressing. Obama is really lucky he killed Osama bin Laden, because if he hadn’t, the security team at the Wall Street Journal was not going to let him into this particular construction site in Manhattan. YOU MUST PROVE YOUR WORTH IF YOU WISH TO EXPERIENCE THE MAGICAL LAND OF 9/11, ELOQUENT TRAVELER. Read more on WSJ Writer Says Obama Is Allowed To Visit Ground Zero Now…

Photos: America Pounds Beers In Celebration At Ground Zero

Last night, Americans heard the news about Osama bin Laden and flocked to the site where the World Trade Center once stood. And they arrived on this hallowed ground, they held up signs, tried to get themselves on teevee, and yelled celebratory chants, including “SEND THEM HOME.” But most of all, these people got drunk. And some of them also smoked marijuana. And then Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell opponent Lt. Dan Choi showed up for some reason. Uh, okay! We were there and took some photos of the celebration.

Maureen Dowd Tosses Herself a Fine Word Salad

This week, Maureen Dowd’s Big Sexxxy Sunday Column contains exactly one interesting thought: “Obama is the victim of the elevated expectations he so skillfully created in 2008.” Well that is very fascinating, Maureen! That would even make a good Thesis for a Column. Too bad this cogent statement arrives 85 percent of the way into an otherwise muddled word salad.

Somebody Wants To Murder Al Franken’s Condo

Minneapolis police are investigating CRUDE VIOLENCE, after Al Franken’s wife reported that the Frankens’ condo had been shot. The condo seems to be in stable condition, although a window was cracked. Interestingly, Al Franken just came out very strongly against the opponents of the proposed New York Muslim community center. Are Minnesotans trying to KILL Al Franken’s condo because it’s associated with this Muslin senator? Read more on Somebody Wants To Murder Al Franken’s Condo…

Roy Blunt Uses Smoldering 9/11 Ruins In Mosque Ad, Which Is a Gaffe Apparently

Missouri Republican Senate candidate Roy Blunt put up this Web ad yesterday, featuring audio from his opponent, Robin Carnahan, and a single Ken Burns-effected photo of the smoldering ruins of the World Trade Center. Wow, this is such a cute ad! How did he accomplish this cuteness without the use of kittens? So this is a gaffe, apparently, and it was taken down. But the Blunt campaign has since put out the exact same ad with a different image, that of Obama and Carnahan. Our head of state, you see, is a Muslim who wants to take over America with his terrorism, and that, that is not a gaffe in today’s America, but rather good politics.

Sarah Palin Continues To Hate America

Sarah Palin continues to be a major critic of President Barack Obama. Why are people giving her a platform? Why would anyone think she has any particular insight into national issues and how our federal government should operate? Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to mic up a grilled cheese sandwich and ask it questions? But at least she adds to the diversity of the medium, because unlike most people on our teevee boxes, she hates the United States of America. Read more on Sarah Palin Continues To Hate America…

Newt Gingrich Continues To Be Terrible On Mosque Issue, Is Joined By Anti-Defamation League

Newt Gingrich is very busy! Look, there he is, saying Sarah Palin will run for president! And wow, he wants us to explode the other two members of the “Axis of Evil!” But more importantly, it is his job to stoke fear over the proposed mosque near the World Trade Center site, so it is no surprise he is using that hate to raise money for himself. You know what is a surprise? The Anti-Defamation League is joining him in this hate. Read more on Newt Gingrich Continues To Be Terrible On Mosque Issue, Is Joined By Anti-Defamation League…

Attention Bigots: There Is Already a Mosque Near the WTC Site

Wonkette operative “Evan B.” writes: “The debate over the planned mosque at Ground Zero seems a bit retarded to me; I work directly between the planned mosque and a mosque that has existed before 9/11 and continues to operate to this day. The existing mosque and the proposed mosque are probably 800 feet apart; one city block, let’s say.” This is humorous! LISTEN UP, HATEFUL ASSHOLES: The end is near! The Muslins have already invaded that city you call godless yet love because terrorism happened there! YOU ARE RIGHT TO BE VERY, VERY SCARED AND ANGRY ABOUT THIS! So you have to kill yourselves right now! It is the only way! Read more on Attention Bigots: There Is Already a Mosque Near the WTC Site…

Terrorist Ship That Was Rammed Into Ye Olde Worlde Trade Centre Discovered

Workers are excavating the World Trade Center site (Not done yet? What is this, union labor?), and on Tuesday, they found a giant 18th-century ship stuck in there. How? Well, back then terrorists were called “pirates.” (Evil liberal Hollywood has made empathize with pirates, but they were TERRORISTS OF THE SEAS.) And these pirates hated nothing more than our freedom (for white English male property owners)! So they drove their ship up Manhattan and right into the side of the Dutch East Indian Company Worlde Trade Centre.

Peter King Not Going To Let You Worship Al Qaeda Near Ground Zero

Long Island Congressman and ranking Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee Peter King wants there to be an investigation into the funding of a proposed mosque to be built near the World Trade Center site in New York City, because terrorists are the only Muslims in the world with money, right? “It’s a house of worship, but we are at war with Al Qaeda,” King said. Muslims worship Al Qaeda! Makes sense. We wouldn’t want Muslims to think they are welcome near Ground Zero, because that might show we don’t hate them and do allow them to be free in our country.

BBC, CNN Employ Magical Psychic News Announcers

The Internets are buzzing with the bizarre story of BBC News reporting the 9/11 collapse of WTC7 before the building actually collapsed — all over a live shot of Ground Zero, with the 47-story highrise clearly in view and clearly standing. What it “proves” is anyone’s guess, but it sure makes for hilarious viewing. But BBC reporters and anchors who maybe didn’t know the Manhattan skyline so well could possibly be forgiven for reporting an erroneous story and not knowing that great big highrise was World Trade Center 7 (otherwise known as the Salomon Brothers building). So why doesn’t the BBC simply say it got a story wrong and didn’t know any better? Stranger still, why did New York-based CNN anchor Aaron Brown do the same exact thing on September 11, 2001? We’ve got all the creepy video and much more to make your head asplode, after the jump. Read more on BBC, CNN Employ Magical Psychic News Announcers…
