Spitting on a dead dog

Love pointless war? Then you'll love Obama! Or so says our heroic Republican shills.

President Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize speech Thursday is drawing praise from some unlikely quarters – conservative Republicans – who likened Obama’s defense of “just wars” to the worldview of his predecessor, Republican George W. Bush.

It’s already being called the “Obama Doctrine” – a notion that foreign policy is a struggle of good and evil, that American exceptionalism has blunted the force of tyranny in the world, and that U.S. military can be a force for good and even harnessed to humanitarian ends.

Manichaeism as described by our beloved fake Christians, how predictable.

The remarks drew immediate praise from a host of conservatives, including former GOP House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

No surprise there. Warmongers tend to love war.

“I liked what he said," Palin told USA Today. "Of course, war is the last thing I believe any American wants to engage in, but it's necessary. We have to stop these terrorists."

War is the last thing Robert Kagan and Bill Kristol want. They don't devote every single column they write to pumping up non-threats and agitating for more wars do they?And this lady is the great white hope? Sending your sons and daughters (how emasculated have we become to send women into war?) to die for no reason is really conservative according to Buchanan brigade Sarah.

Gingrich told The Takeaway, a national morning drive show from WNYC and Public Radio International, “He clearly understood that he had been given the prize prematurely, but he used it as an occasion to remind people, first of all, as he said: that there is evil in the world."

Why didn't he bomb Newt Gingrich then?

“I think having a liberal president who goes to Oslo on behalf of a peace prize and reminds the committee that they would not be free, they wouldn't be able to have a peace prize, without having [the ability to use] force,” Gingrich said. “I thought in some ways it's a very historic speech.”

"Historic speech" - in justification of anti-Christian wars after telling America that Obama is ushering in communism from Newt Gingrich. We know what Republicans are really about now.

The context was striking. The president is enormously popular in Norway – a crowd of several thousand waited at his hotel chanting “Obama. Obama. Obama.” And “yes we can. Yes we can. yes we can.” Still, he spoke to the Nobel committee in a room packed with European dignitaries – including the Norwegian royal family — on a continent where skepticism of the U.S. mission in Afghanistan is strong. And despite the sentiments in the room, Obama defended the American war effort there and told the Europeans that their reflexive pacifism may be self defeating.

There are brainwashed Obamaphiles in Norway too?

Whatever mistakes we have made, the plain fact is this: the United States of America has helped underwrite global security for more than six decades with the blood of our citizens and the strength of our arms,” Obama said. “The service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform has promoted peace and prosperity from Germany to Korea, and enabled democracy to take hold in places like the Balkans.”

Mr. Obama speaks the truth. But the "global security" has become so entrenched that we now wage war against fake terrorists. Why don't we bring our troops home President Obama? There are people freezing and starving and global security doesn't really register with them. They crave survival and could care less about Germany and Korea. We used to call these folks the Democrat base, but now the Democrat base is found in Hollywood, Oslo, New York, and Tel Aviv. What ever happened to the working man President Obama?

And Obama’s comments came just nine days after the president stood before cadets at West Point and told them that American values are “the moral source of America's authority,” as he ordered an additional 30,000 troops into Afghanistan. His decision to push for a surge also garnered Obama comparisons to Bush, who had done much the same thing in Iraq three years earlier. The Oslo speech, too, reminded some of Obama’s predecessor – with a twist.

Does George Bush or Michael Gerson write Obama's speeches?

“The irony is that George W. Bush could have delivered the very same speech. It was a truly an American president's message to the world,” said Bradley A. Blakeman, a Republican strategist and CEO of Kent Strategies LLC who worked in the Bush White House.

Okay, they do write Obama's speeches.

“Wow. what a shift of emphasis,” said Robert Kagan of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a former policy advisor to McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign. Kagan said. “I don't know what to say about an ‘Obama doctrine,’ because based on this speech, I think we are witnessing a substantial shift, back in the direction of a more muscular moralism, ala, Truman, Reagan.”

Robert Kagan, a man who never met a war he didn't like, spouting off about a muscular moralism. How fitting for a warmonger writing for an international endowment for peace.

I close with this question: Is America a joke? Is Western Civilization finished?

No federally funded abortions...No health care

So the whole B.S about abortion being a personal decision has gone out the window. No more excuses for fake Catholics. Just like there are no excuses for the fake Catholics who ignored the Pope regarding the war on Iraq.

Around the Horn

I found Mitt Romney's nonsensical plan to revive our economy linked by several Republican hacks during my weekly trek into the infernal regions of Republican establishment quackery. Apparently, Newt Gingrich isn't the only Republican capable of formulating worthless ten point plans on nearly everything and having it swallowed as Gospel by the faux-conservative gasbags that dominate the Republican Party.

I then discovered that Bob Dole was still alive and taking insulubrious doses of American Exceptionalism sildenafil. He's now warning us about the existential threat posed by the possibility of a decentralized Bosnia. He even manages to throw in the timeless "indispesable nation" drivel and as a good Republican pontificates on the evils and dangers of multilaterialism.

Michael Goldfarb doesn't seem to care that the Afghan Army we are fighting side-by-side with are a bunch of raving lunatics; who, in-between firefights, indulge in their favorite hobby of getting doped up on opium and hashish. He even has the bad taste to compare the complete disorientation and recklessness of the Afghanis drug addiction with the British rum ration of World War I.

Another sophisticated writer at the same magazine opines that unless women in Afghanistan parade around the streets of Kabul in short-skirts it will "constitute moral and strategic failure."
Hopefully, Obama's surge in Afghanistan will allow this vital American interest to come to fruition and keep us safe from terrorists.

Another strident defender of America from the nefarious Islamofascists has a theory that one possible reason for America's declining crime rate is higher immigration. He concisely titles his wonderful prose "Higher Immigration, Lower Crime"! I also learned that "Daniel Griswold is director of the Center for Trade Policy Studies at the Cato Institute and author of the new book Mad About Trade: Why Main Street America Should Embrace Globalization." Not only is Danny kind enough to peddle a fantasy immigration policy, he also promulgates a fantasy economic system for the middle-class! I'm sure informing Main Street that they can have the leftover remnant of the economic pie-after immigrants and outsourcing- is a sure way to win them over!

And Finally, I leave you with this wonderful article by Barbara Lerner. Misses Lerner -recently escaped from an insane asylum- wants you to direct all of your irrational fear, paranoia, and hatred like a laser against Iran. Watch Fox News, read the Weekly Standard, listen to Rudy Giuliani speeches, live your entire life in fear and build a nuclear fallout shelter because Iran is on the march! Unless we take action now, the mighty and powerful Iranian air force of f-14's will be dropping nukes on a city near you. Here's a sample of Barbie's powerful writing:

Are you worried — like so many Americans after the Fort Hood massacre — about the growing threat of Islamist subversion and terror here at home? Worried, beyond that, about what we’re doing — or not doing — militarily in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq? Worried about the growing reach and power of Islamist movements in Europe and South America, as well as Asia, the Middle East, and Turkey? Worried about the military alliances Islamist governments are forging with their secular mirror images: socialist-god governments in places like North Korea, Russia, and Venezuela?

Then focus like a laser on Iran, now, because Islamists will score major victories in all those places and more if we fail to prevent the ruling mullahs from openly, triumphantly making Iran the world’s first Islamist nuclear power. The danger isn’t only Iran’s own catastrophic recklessness, once she gets the bomb, or the fact that all her Arab neighbors will respond by scrambling to go nuclear too. It’s also that Islamists everywhere — joined by growing masses of previously undecided Muslims — will see Iran’s success in achieving nuclear status the way Iran’s mullahs see it: as a historic defeat for the West, blasting open the gate to a 21st-century world where Islam rules and Christians, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists are subservient or worse. Islamist ranks will swell, everywhere, as confidence grows that the Islamist side is the winning side, and victory is near.

Keeping America Insane

Statement from Liz Cheney on President Obama’s Afghanistan Strategy

I support President Obama’s decision to send additional troops to Afghanistan to defeat the enemy.

Who is the enemy Liz? How do we defeat them? What would defeat look like?

I do not support the establishment of timelines for withdrawal. Success must be our only exit strategy.
What is success? Should we stay in Afghanistan for 1,000 years?

The delay in making the decision has done real damage.

What is the real damage?

It has left doubts among our friends and enemies about America’s commitment to winning the war.
What does winning the war consist of? It has left doubts among our enemies? Who are our enemies?

Afghanistan is a necessary war that must be won.

Why is it necessary? What is winning?

America’s military men and women are the best the world has ever known and I have no doubt they can do what is necessary to take this fight to the enemy and win.”

Who is the enemy? What is winning?

Is the Weekly Standard a sick Communist joke?

If you wished to discredit, mock, and undermine a political movement, there is nothing that quite compares to infiltration and hijacking. Heck, even Bill's college roommate Alan Keyes tried to hijack the Constitution Party in 2008.

All one must do, in order to understand the joke, is read the homepage of the Weekly Standard. Please don't bother wasting your time perusing the links behind the propaganda those fancy article headings display(not to mention the caricatures of themselves displayed adjacent their humor pieces). This is a futile and inconsequential experiment that will test your hard-fought sobriety, and can only lead to bewilderment, or perhaps, delirium. Just focus on the descriptions that are used to subsidize the joke.

To me, the joke became manifest at approximately 9:30 p.m on November 22nd, 2009.
