Those Darn Republicans Strike Again

And thank goodness because who else wants to keep us safe from radical jihadists and Congressional Hispanics?

Seriously.  From The Hill:

Earlier Thursday (Congressional Leader John) Boehner and Intelligence Committee Ranking Republican Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) released the 1-minute, 24-second web video “highlighting the Administration’s lack of a comprehensive strategy to confront and fight the terrorist threat,” according to a Boehner office press release.

What’s dropping a few jaws is that sandwiched between images of Obama greeting the Saudi King and Hugo Chavez and images of the Pentagon burning on 9/11 is a shot of the President meeting with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus!  I guess because they’re, you know, hispanic and probably related to illegals and all and want all the borders, you know, opened up or something.

In reponse to the Caucus’ demand for an apology, Boehner’s spokespeep came back with this:

“This is beyond silly,” Boehner spokesman Michael Steel responded. “The video also includes an image of the President speaking at the House Democratic Retreat in Virginia. Is the Congressional Hispanic Caucus suggesting that every Democrat in the House is connected with terrorists? Of course not. America’s national security is serious. This complaint is not.”

No, I don’t think the CHC is suggesting that every Democrat in the House is connected with terrorists.  Sure seems like the Rethugs are suggesting that though.

Those Darn Republicans!  What won’t they think of next!

White Men Can’t Harrumph

Halp. I’m white and I’m male and nobody wants me.

Mark Halperin, one of the whitest men in America, wrote the following weird header (accompanied by a stock photo of what I guess is his idea of what a “white man” looks like) to pitch another post that mentions nothing about white men being excluded from consideration to replace Justice Souter:

White Men Need Not Apply

Nobody knows the troubles white men in this country have seen.  Thank god Brave Mark Halperin is around to remind us about it. [via Balloon Juice]

Sarah Palin: “You’ve got that patriotism in you that people just so respect” Loop

Sarah Palin’s appearance on TLC’s American Chopper converted to a wingnut first-person porn loop.  Vroom vroom!
