Heh: Great strategy, champ! We can get on board with THIS Obama strategy


For serious. One of the most shameful events was the appalling fist-bumping pivot to golfo after Obama’s statement on ISIS and the barbaric execution of journalist James Foley. The White House? Whatever guys. No apologies.



But here’s an excellent point:


Yep. We can get on board. Great strategy, champ! Keep being unapologetic, shameless and shameful. It’s totally working for you.


Fist bump? Just when you thought Obama’s golf after Foley presser couldn’t get more sickening … [photo]

Ouch! Here is another reason why ISIS won’t take us seriously (and it’s painful)

Sad, enraging summation: How ‘appalled’ by Foley beheading was Obama? THIS appalled

‘Yow!’ You’re about to see why this ‘blistering’ Daily News Obama cover may be the best ever [photo]

‘They’ve noticed’: CNN finally wakes up to President Putt-Putt reality [photo]

‘When you’ve lost Ezra’: Journos find Obama golfing after James Foley presser ‘in bad taste’

Bet you can’t guess where Obama went right after his James Foley presser!

That time when Obama gave a statement on ISIS and all we got was a stern face and tees

‘Just wait them out’? Passive POTUS says ‘people like [ISIS] ultimately fail’

‘Not the JV team anymore?’ Obama ‘now talking like ISIS is varsity’

WH reportedly knew of ISIS threat to kill Foley and Obama was doing this [photo]

‘Depraved’: Let’s compare David Cameron’s response to Foley beheading to Obama’s (It’s enraging)

Cue the Sarah McLachlan music; weep for Obama’s ‘vacation from hell’


It’s just so sad.


Oh snap. That “spoiler alert” line is going to get a lot of mileage.


With only a few dollars a day to the DNC you can help…

Salon writer to debate ‘NFL’s toxic lies’ with nonexistent Rep. Steven Smith


Salon (the real one, not the parody) decided to troll America today with an article by Steve Almond entitled, “The NFL’s toxic lies: Here are the worst excuses fans use to justify watching football.” Almond, proprietor of againstfootball.org, proposed to examine why millions of fans choose to justify to themselves why they watch “a violent, commercialized sport that we now know can cause brain damage.”

The piece was fair game for the usual dose of Salon ridicule.


Things got interesting, though, when “Mitch Johnson,” chief of staff for the nonexistent Rep. Steve Smith of Georgia’s nonexistent 15th congressional district, called out Almond.


Oh, it’s on.


Yes, definitely try Google.

Bill Maher calls Mitt Romney a ‘rich dick’ without any apparent sense of irony


Of course, if Bill Maher — the guy basically everybody agrees is a jack wagon and who’s rich enough to drop $1 million on Obama’s re-election — had any sense of irony, he wouldn’t say 99% of the ridiculously stupid things he says.

A little nervous? WH meets with Senate Dems up for re-election next year


Many Obamacare proponents in Congress are afraid that the Obamacare debacle could cost them their cushy jobs, and none are more concerned than Senate Dems up for reelection next year. A group of them met with President Obama today at the White House:


President Obama undoubtedly assured them that if they liked their Senate seats, they would be able to keep their Senate seats.


Asked about the meeting, Jay Carney offered his usual dizzying spin:


A question:


One answer might be “very quickly.”
