Gibbs in hockey jersey
We see through your charade, Comrade Gibbs!

-Headline of the day-
"Robert Gibbs - Canada Hockey Jersey."

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs made minor headlines for showing up for the daily press conference wearing a Canadian hockey jersey. Seems there was an international bet riding on the Winter Olympic hockey thingy and America lost. According to the report, the King of Canada, Sean Harper and President Obama had a wager where the loser would buy a sixer of beer for the winner. In addition, Gibbs and whoever his Canuck counterpart is decided the loser would show up wearing the winning countries jersey. So Gibbs, not being a welsher, did his part.

Hahaha! It's funny!

But wait a second there, Chairman Mao. Canada has commie healthcare and the whole thing is some sort of subtle propaganda to get you to think Canadians aren't evil. "Get the message?" wonders the rightwing blog Freedom's Eden. "The Obama administration wants our health care system to go Canadian."

Yikes! And they're being so sneaky about it that their healthcare proposal looks nothing at all like the Canadian system! It's like camouflage or something.

The cunning bastards... (Freedom's Eden)

"Rove ‘proud’ detainees were waterboarded."

Sure you are. It's because you're a coward and a sadist and someone without any system of morality or ethics at all.

Wait a second, are you sure "proud" is the right word? (Raw Story)
