(Hat tip to Tallulah over at the Rott.)
When – no, not if, when – God finally decides He’s had enough and brings the United States to its knees and relegates it to the ash heap of history, no one should wonder why:
But back to the question of genius. The U.S. government under Barack Obama is deeply committed to battling any belittlement, criticism, or questioning of Islam. (“I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States,” he said, “to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.”)
At the same time, however, it is OK, in the Obama regime [SEE BELOW FOR AN UPDATE], for the U.S. government to burn Bibles. Yes, that’s right. Bibles were sent to U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan. But the U.S. government determined that the presence of Bibles in this “devoutly Muslim country” might inflame the natives. So they burned them. Why did they burn them? Because it is military policy to burn its trash.
Isn’t that nice? Handle it “as if it were a fragile piece of delicate art.” But burn the Bible because it is just part of your trash.
Not gonna be long now, I think, Denizens.

Denizens, I’m not terribly sure how I feel about this.
So quickly has this ignited that, as I write this, there are rumors spreading on Twitter and being treated as semi-plausible by people in the know that Qaddafi’s already bugged out and left for Venezuela. There’s no evidence that it’s true — Libya’s essentially off-limits to media, so it’s impossible to tell facts from propaganda on either side — but the regime’s in enough trouble that Qaddafi’s son had to go on national TV within the last hour or so and vow, “We will fight to the last minute, until the last bullet.” Next stop: Civil war. Sides are already being chosen, in fact:
Better the devil you know?

Denizens, I give you the “He Didn’t Say That. Tell Me He Didn’t Just Say That” Moment Of The Year.
“I think the Muslim Brotherhood is not anything to be afraid of in the upcoming (Egyptian) political situation and the evolution I see as most likely,” Carter said. “They will be subsumed in the overwhelming demonstration of desire for freedom and true democracy.”
Oh. Emm. Effin’. Gee.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.

A commenter on Professor Jacobson’s blog has the definitive analysis on what needs to happen to Julian Ass-mange:
Simple fact of the matter is that if we very publically put a bullet in his brain, whomever he left minding the Wikileaks store will have to find themselves wondering if they might not be next and they might just decide that discretion is the better part of valor.
If we do not, then he will still have that document and WILL publish it at some point. so it is better to go ahead and shoot the bastard and deal with the consequences now than to wait and let the consequences grow.
When you start playing hard ball with the big boys, expect to get hurt. At this level of abstraction there are no laws and no rules except one. win. Assange has managed to grab the Tiger by the tail, but he doesn’t have an effective plan for dealing with the other end of the Tiger. That is a good way to get dead.
This half-assed excuse-for-an-Administration won’t do that, of course – it doesn’t have the cojones.
But calling Ass-mange’s bluff – and sending the pussies at Wikileaks a message – seems the best way to deal with them. They’re terrorists – and there’s only one way you deal with terrorists.

Item: The bumbling, incompetent amateurs at Al-Obambi, in yet another blatant attempt to undermine our efforts in the war against
man-caused disasters terrorism, released heretofore classified documents outlining US interrogation methods against Al-Obambi collaborators enemy combatants.
The methods authorized include keeping detainees naked for long periods, keeping them in a painful standing position for long periods and depriving them of solid food. Other tactics included using a plastic neck collar to slam detainees into walls, keeping the detainee’s cell cold for long periods and beating and kicking the detainee. Sleep deprivation, prolonged shackling and threats to a detainee’s family were also used.
Treasonous asscrusts like Opponents such as the Anti-American Cuntmuffins’ Lapdogs Union Anti-American Cuntmuffins’ Lapdogs Union have long bleated argued that these methods are ineffective in extracting useful information from Al-Obambi collaborators enemy combatants.
Item: Former Vice-President
with more cojones than in the entire Demoscum Party Dick Cheney went on record saying, in effect, “Hey, if you’re going to release those memos, release the ones that also say these methods, y’know, actually work.”
“One of the things that I find a little bit disturbing about this recent disclosure is they put out the legal memos, the memos that the CIA got from the Office of Legal Counsel, but they didn’t put out the memos that showed the success of the effort,” Cheney said.
Cheney said he’s asked that the documents be declassified because he has remained silent on the confidential information, but he knows how successful the interrogation process was and wants the rest of the country to understand.
Terrorist enabler & racist bastard Attorney General Eric “America’s A Bunch Of Racist Cowards” Holder claims he won’t do the very thing he’s now doing – releasing memos selectively.
“It is certainly the intention of this administration not to play hide and seek, or not to release certain things,” said Holder. “It is not our intention to try to advance a political agenda or to try to hide things from the American people.”
Holder said he wasn’t sure exactly which memos Cheney is referring to, because he hasn’t seen them. The attorney general suggested such classified documents may exist at other agencies.
“I’m the attorney general and I don’t control many of the memos you might be talking about,” said Holder.
Bullshit, Erica. You run the
InJustice Department; you have control over the memos. And it’s not like these things are rogue documents strewn about all over the place like data on a fragmented hard drive. They’re in the same general area; you, figuratively speaking, are looking up around the ceiling while the memos are right under your nose.
So tell us, Erica: Who’s the coward now, hmmmmm???

Boy, those warrior stud muffins at Al-Obambi really strike fear into the hearts of those Somali pirates, don’t they?
NAIROBI, April 11 (Reuters) – Pirates seized a U.S.-owned and Italian-flagged tugboat with 16 crew on Saturday in the latest hijacking in the busy Gulf of Aden waterway, a regional maritime group said.
Andrew Mwangura, of the Mombasa-based East African Seafarers’ Assistance Programme, said the crew were believed to be unharmed on the tugboat, which he added was operated from the United Arab Emirates.
“This incident shows the pirates are becoming more daring and violent,” Mwangura told Reuters by phone.
Offhand, I’d say that they’ve become…emboldened…by the lack of a strong leader at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
(And I despise using that word, because when talking foreign affairs, it seems to be the only word that Sean Hannity knows. I mean, it seems that every other word out of Hannity’s mouth is emboldened when it comes to foreign policy, y’know?)
Sorta reminds me of FP under…oh, say…Peanuthead:
One thing Carter did not have was foreign policy expertise. As a result, he relied on his foreign policy advisers, Secretary of State Cyrus Vance (who was a partner in a major New York law firm) and National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University. The results were disastrous. Under Carter, the US allowed the Shah of Iran to fall and the Islamist Ayatollahs to take over. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan and Carter sent aid to the anti-Soviet Islamists. He drastically slashed support for South Korea. These policies are still causing repercussions thirty years later with Iran and North Korea both developing nuclear weapons and al-Qaeda being based in Afghanistan.
Remind you of anyone in particular?
