News Roundup for 9/22/09

Cheney with a shotgun
GWB's missile defense system

-Headline of the day-
"The Missile Debate in Maps."

Last week, President Obama advanced his plan to destroy America by leaving Poland and the Czech Republic defenseless against Iranian missiles. See, everyone knows that without Poland and the CR, we're all doomed. It's the doorway to Idaho. Good patriotic Americans were outraged.

According to the BBC, here's what the scrapped plan, proposed by George W. Bush, would've covered:

Map of Bush's plan

Here's what his new plan would cover:

Map of Obama's plan

Ok sure, Obama's plan is technically better, but that's not the point. And even the smaller coverage area in the first map is bullshit, because that missile system doesn't actually work -- because it's just Dick Cheney standing in a field with a shotgun -- but that's not the point either. The point is that Barack HUSSEIN Obama pulled a weapons system because he's a communist Muslim terr'ist -- like Hitler. That his idea would actually cover more area, while doing crazy stuff like working, is irrelevant...

Mostly because that fact is not at all terrifying. (Crooks and Liars)

-[Obvious] quote of the day-
"I think it's important to realize that I was actually black before the election."
--Barack Obama to David Letterman, on why he doesn't think opposition to him is being driven mainly by racism.

See, he won, after all. While I think he's probably right (about the racism, I mean. I know he was black before), his math is a little goofy -- he didn't win unanimously. So that's not really proof of anything.

Still, it'd be wrong to say that the main motivation for the wingnuts with their tea parties and 9/12 rallies is racism. The truth is that it's stupidity. (CBS News, with video)

-Bonus HotD-
"Washington Times Teams Up With the Heritage Foundation to Save the Conservative Movement."

Yeah, that's what they need; fresh faces. These are the two organizations that were almost certain that George W. Bush was a living god, so that ought to work out well.

I mean, it's not like these guys were responsible for screwing everything up in the first place...

So what's the big plan? A website.

How ambitious. (Right Wing Watch)
