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.
