The Bow that Shook the Inbreds

The teabirther-chickenhawk brigade is taking a short break from their usual blubberings. They’ve got their panties in such a tight twist over Obama’s infamous bow in Japan, they’ve momentarily forgotten to yell and scream about “Death Panels!” and “Socialized Medicine!”

For now, the Far Right locksteppers are shrieking in unison that Obama is “apologizing for America!” “Groveling before our enemies!”

The knuckledraggers had the same mass hissyfit the last time Obama traveled overseas. For people with simple thought patterns, there are only two possibilities for the President of the United States when he’s visiting a foreign country. The correct choice of course is to thump your chest and yell out “America is Number One and don’t you forget it, you swarthy $#!%&$!#%&#$#$s!” If the president does anything other than that, what he’s actually doing is getting on his knees and groveling and begging for forgiveness. Sort of like what Michael Steele does every time he inadvertently offends Rush Limbaugh.

The expression “when in Rome…” probably doesn’t register with the retards who spend their lives sitting in their trailer watching Fox News. For everybody else — people in Japan bow. In India you don’t eat with your left hand. In Turkey and Iran you don’t use your thumb while hitchhiking because sticking out your thumb is their version of the middle finger. In England, if you mention something about a traffic circle or looking under the hood of your car, they won’t know what you’re talking about. And in Japan, you bow.

Bill Kristol, Bill Bennett and Karl Rove are among the rightfucks who have lashed out at Obama for bowing in Japan.

What Would Dumbya Do?

Or maybe Obama should’ve done what Dumbya’s father did, and thrown up all over his Japanese hosts.

Here’s a blog post about Obama’s “apologizing” and “groveling.” Check out the comments at the end of the post. There are some flatout scary stupid people out there.

In other Republican news: Remember Al Franken’s amendment to that defense bill, prohibiting the Pentagon from doing business with firms that force their employees to sign one of those “I promise not to squeal or make trouble if I get raped on the premises” clauses? And the thirty Republican senators who voted against the amendment (the amendment passed anyway)?

Those thirty Republicans are now horrified — Shocked! — at the backlash they’ve received. They sided with the gang-rapists — and the corporation that enabled them — over the rape victim, and all of a sudden them womenfolk are worrying their pretty little heads and going all hysterical and everything. Who knew?

But at least now those Republican senators have learned their lesson. Boy have they learned it. After some brutally honest soul-searching, the Republican Gang of Thirty have realized exactly what they did wrong. Their mistake: agreeing to a roll-call vote when they voted to stab rape victims in the back. What were they thinking?? Lesson learned!

The next time they vote to sell gang-rape victims down the river, they’ll do it with a simple voice vote instead of a roll-call vote. That way, the lowly public (i.e. their employers) won’t know who voted which way. They can still be a bunch of slippery backstabbing shitstains, but the public won’t know about it and won’t be able to hold them accountable.

Live and learn.

Given that Bush kissed that Saudi smack on the lips with a big old eyes-closed serene-expression smooch, then they need to STFU about Obama obeying japanese protocol and bowing. Japanese do not handshake, and I don't blame them. That's one american custom I could certainly do without, given the number of people who walk out of a public john without washing their hands.

Lisa: Well, at least he's been called a lot worse things than that.

Bee: You're right about Bush french-kissing that Saudi prince, and the other picture where he's walking along holding hands with him. (I don't know if it's the same Saudi VIP or not.) This sure doesn't give the rightwads much ground to stand on.

Good point about not shaking hands with all the current germ scare. And yes, there's no such thing as an "experienced" first term president.

remember when the truth came out about Bush stealing Florida in 2000? What was the response from the right wing noise machine?
Get over it
Well, no these same pantsmears are upset that Obama won the election, with out resorting to scrubbed voter rolls or help from rigged touch screen voting machines, and so they choose to criticize the president's every breath because it's not a rich old white man breathing it. The Republicans should just face it-they ran a doddering old flip-flopper who chose as a running mate a meat headed moose killer from Wasilla, and lost. Fair and square.
My message to these tweedlers is GET THE F@%* OVER IT

Oh yeah Lisa, we need to give him a break for showing class. Not like he gave the guy a back rub or anything at a G-8 meeting. Oh wait, that was the boy king. Didn't he get all smoochy and hand holdy with a Saudi price? Why yes, I think he did.

Hey Lisa, in more obvious news, dems won, you lost....get over it as I was told countless times after I watched Brooks brothers rioting in Florida when they stopped recounts as asked by the boy king's brother.

They are all a bunch of pant loads and no matter what PO does, they will dog him regardless. It just shows that some of our fellow citizens don't know squat about other cultures in the world. Remember, they probably have never left the confines of their own states, maybe not even past city limits.

I'm sitting here wondering, what our lamebrain right wingers would make of it if Japan's prime minister were to visit Washington, and when President Obama extended his hand for a handshake, the P.M. just gave him a blank look and kept his hand at his side? I'm sure if Obama were to say something negative about it, the wingnuts would have a field day criticizing him for making a big deal about a minor misttep by a key friend, ally and trading partner. Or, if Obama were to ignore it, moving right along as if nothing had happened, the same lamebrains would whoop and holler about how he let the Jap diss him and America.

As for Bill "No Credibility" Kristol, why anyone who's not part of the right-wing noise machine pays the slightest bit of attention to him is a mystery. I get the impression outfits like CNN have at long last decided that when it comes to honesty and accuracy, Drudge registers somewhere between a used-car salesman in white shoes and a checkered sportcoat, and Karl Rove. Yet Kristol is as bad or worse than Drudge, and still they refer to his screed as if it deserved a split second of anyone's time or thought. Please, somebody put a fork in him; he's done.

Lisa, Obama didn't bow because he's an amateur. He bowed because he's well mannered. Why, I'll bet he didn't even try to be cute with the Japanese P.M.'s wife by giving her an unrequested neck massage — the way George W. Bush did with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But if amateurishness was Obama's problem, with only 10 months in the job he could be excused. George W. Bush was every bit as much of a jerk at two months short of eight years as he was on Day 1. Same goes for Cheney, Rice, Addington, Bolton and the rest of that pack of jackals.

These are the same assholes that accused him of not showing respect to the Queen of England by shaking her hand.

Now: you do not shake hands with the Queen of England unless she extends it first - ALL American Presidents have followed that Custom, except Obama (who was told in advance he didn't have to The English press told ours and the Conservatives backed off).

Is this really about President not having to follow customs of respect because it looks submissive in our country, in which case there should have been an uproar over coddling the Queen after all these years (we are no longer a colony and we could nuke them in a second, why not grab her ass and give her a tongue kiss?) but there isn't.

I've seen Presidents wearing traditional garbs (over their suits yuk), follow some local customs and such - and though they make look stupid and out of place - No one has ever made a deal about it until now.

I think that one poster who commented about our "half-black president" (gee which half?) Sums up a lot of their inner feelings.

Oh it gets worse. I just saw this on Dailykos. Read it and weep. Apparently it is because his mother was with third world country men. They are not even trying to hide the racism anymore. This is vile and what this family has had to put up with is awful. This is the Washington times, so it is a right wing fish wrap. This supposedly explains his lack of Americanness.

At least Obama didn't throw up over Japanese dignitaries, which is a bit of a Bush tradition.

Not only did Bush kiss the Saudi Prince, but he kissed Joe Lieberman too. Not as though there's anything wrong with that.

By the time the Dippos get over losing the last general election, It'll be time to lose another one and during Obama's second term, they'll be talking about the good old days of his first term as they fade away into the ether.

Ah Lisa, Michele didn't get even half that amount she claimed at her protest. There were roughly 3-4000 people there. Even Hannity had to admit to bullshitting his audience with the footage. He was caught splicing bits from Glen Beck's protest and putting it amongst the superbowl of freedom gathering, with Bachmann and the clowns that messed up the pledge and confusing the DoI with the Const. Makes it look like there were more, of course it was an inadvertent mistake on his show. Not really, that's what he said, he just didn't think he would be called out on it. Jon Stewart did the calling out. If you like I would be more than happy to supply the clip for you. Ask nicely though.

Which Bachmann rally are speaking of? the one where she misused her official congressional website by urging people to come to the Capitol to protest the legislation despite House rules restricting members from using their websites to engage in 'grassroots lobbying or solicit support for a Member’s position? The one with "such a crowd" that they had to use footage from a different rally to support their inflated numbers. Grow up, you twit. Only 22 percent of Americans now identify themselves as Republicans. That puts your party in the same league as the Green Party, or the Libertarians.

Lisa, 1 this posting was not about HCR or anything like that. Why is it so difficult for you to keep up with new conversations? Is it because you are so used to spouting one set of talking points endlessly, we might forget what we are really talking about, or is it you have no thoughts of your own to offer to different topics till you are told what to say by your overlords?

Bush did care about womens' health care as long as they were saving those little "snowflake babies" look it up. If they weren't then, you have it, you are on your own.

It is NOT the government that is advocating for the mammograms to be done after 50, it is different groups depending on data they have been collecting over the years to SUGGEST it.

Damn, you really have no clue do you? Read a little on teh google, you have access to it, inform yourself so you don't come to a battle of wits unarmed. It is not pretty to watch you being decimated time after time. Well it is, but I was being nice to you.

Something got crossed in the toobs.... weird. Had to delete my last educational piece for lisa.

Anyway.... lisa, the intellectual titan, is (surprise) badly misinformed about her hero Bachmann, who did nothing but show up and tell lies at that "grass roots" event. Most of the organizing, and a lot of the transporting, was courtesy of Dick Armey and his Orwellian-named "Freedom"Works.

Lew: Damn right, it's the Republicans' turn to get the F#$% over it. And at least Obama is trying to do the things he promised to so when he was campaigning. In the 2000 election Bush never mentioned anything about getting us quagmired in 2 wars and alienating the rest of the world.

Jess: That's exactly what they do; they just criticize every move he makes. Everything he does, the pantloads (love that expression) find something to whine about.

SW: You're right, the wingnuts would have a mass tantrum if the Japanese P.M. were visiting the U.S., no matter which move Obama made or didn't make. I have no idea who still listens to Bill Kristol or Karl Rove, other than the 20 percenters who think Dumbya was a great president.

Erik: They just need something, anything, to yelp about. When the President tries to fit in with local customs and the wingnuts call it "apologizing for America," they're just showing how desperate they are.

Robert: The only reason Bush didn't invade Saudi Arabia is because that Saudi prince gives good tongue.

Randal: Whaddya mean, that's what Reagan "would've done?" That's what Reagan DID. Gorbachev tore down the Berlin Wall after Reagan punched him in the forehead; and that colorful bruise is still there.

Lisa: As usual, your last 2 comments have nothing to do with what anyone else is talking about.

Holt: "Fading away into the ether" -- I sure hope they'll be doing that, and soon.

Anonymous: Thanks. I'll check out your site.

Lew: I think it's scary that even 22% of the public still identifies themselves as Republicans. But I'm glad that percentage is getting smaller and smaller.

JR: I like the way they provided 40 buses to bring people to that demonstration from all over the country, and then they try to present it as a "spontaneous" uprising of "grass roots" anger. The 20-percenters are the only ones dumb enough to fall for that shit.

You people have ruined that term. As a matter of fact, most people run away from it now, because your "conservatism" means that women are the property of men, only white men with money should have any say in anything, and we should invite your version of Jesus to set a Jesusistan Sharia that all of us to live under. You celebrate stupidity like it's a virtue, rage against science and learning, and insist that the only way to make anything better is to do even more of what made things like they are now.

You're about as "conservative" as I am. What you are is a Fascist, Godwin's Law be damned.

1. Continue to post off topic. Posting about Michelle Bachmann in a story about President Obama following protocol on a state visit is not a cogent argument.
2. Misspellings are an excellent indication of intelligence level. Please keep those up as well. We pray you never learn how to spell check, because that's half the battle.
3.Keep drummming up WWII references. You've obviously never heard of Godwin's Law. Google that sometime, and you'll see why no one takes you very seriously.
4.Continue to play the victim.
5. Continue to mix ideologies. Is President Obama a fascist? A socialist? A communist? It doesn't matter to you, you'll just keep flinging mud based on what you read at other muddle-pated right wing web sites.
