I didn't realize Roger Simon worked for Politico now. When even the Baltimore Sun- which is crooked, useless, and in the pocket of the local government -won't let you work for them anymore, you have seriously fallen.

And here's the way to tell if you're right about what God made the earthquake for: go beat your head against a rock as hard as you can. If you're still absolutely certain after 25 times, you've probably got it right. But try another 25 times just to be certain.

Theories on how this might be Obama's fault:

When Obama flew to Martha Vineyard to go golfing, he took so many Secret Service men and reporters with him he lightened the pressure on a major fault, causing it to snap. Strength: Presidents travel with an entourage of 5,000 to 6,000 people counting all the officials, Secret Service and journalists. Weakness: But Bush went on vacation or to the ranch in Texas one day in four, so that one is weak.

When Michelle went on vacation, she packed her suitcase with Doubledown Burgers. The enticing smell lured hundreds of thundering herds of schoolchildren to follow her. Strength: Moving any bumber of American schoolchildren would involve a tremendous shift of mass. Weakness: Nobody has noticed any absenteeism, economic collapse in the fast food industry.

The girls have been playing around with the Box that launches America's nuclear deterrant.
Strength: It doesn't take a lot of nuclear bombs to equal a 5.9 earthquake.
Weakness: The missiles can't be fired without all of the keys and the girls would only have one or two at the most.

The Republicans have simply renamed the fault that runs under Richmond, the Obama Fault.
Strengths: It's just like them.
Weakness: Nobody else believes anything they say.

Are we supposed to believe that it was a coincidence that this "president" was on "vacation" when this "earthquake" hit? Do they think we're stupid?

Yes, we do.

Obuma's October surprise will be to let the hot air out of Gore on a controlled basis, so that His rhetoric and Gaffe Biden don't cause to much damage..

Uh... Huh.

Breaking news, private investigators have found out that "Earthquake" is actually an identity used by president Obama with the SS# of 666-66-6666.

Obama's stomach growled when he heard about Jerome Corsi's plan to blow this.

I like "telebotanicrat", as he is phoning in his leadership from the green. Also, the completely new word "gronlit", which I am defining as "a unit of measure regarding failure approximately equal in measure to the first 100 days of the first term of Barack Obama's Presidency", and the corollary "gronlitard", a person who performs an act of such failure equal or greater to one gronlit. For larger amounts of failure, we'll use the metric prefix system, so a hectogronlitard is someone who has performed an act or acts sufficient to total 100 gronlits.

We've still got commercial failures:

This is Obama's Zune.
This is Obama's New Coke.
This is Obama's Crystal Pepsi.
This is Obama's Jingle All the Way.

America, land of the afraid and home of the loons.

comical clip from an article:
Firefighters raced to 111 Devonshire St. in the downtown area to investigate reports that the building had started to lean after the tremor. But Deputy Fire Chief Richard DiBenedetto said that, according to the building manager and city inspectors, the building always looked that way.

Of course, we all know that earthquakes aren't really caused by Obama. They are caused by homosexuals and their gay agenda, especially the destruction of heterosexual marriage by enticing the weak-minded heterosexuals into the gay lifestyle, which is virtually irresistable, especially for conservative politicians and fundamentalist preachers.

Homosexuals should pray to Saint Emygdalus of Sienna, the patron saint who protects against earthquakes (and hence, auto-da-fés).

Some Kind of Prophecy Fulfilling Quake Near Washington (And Trinidad)
by: Colorado Pols
Tue Aug 23, 2011 at 12:20:36 PM MDT

Washington Post, still standing:

U.S. Geological Survey has confirmed an earthquake struck central Virginia at 1:53 p.m. It has been felt throughout the D.C. metro region. Am hearing it measured 5.8 on Richter scale...
Curiously, this comes immediately after an 5.3 magnitude earthquake hit near Trinidad, Colorado late yesterday evening. We have no televangelist confirmation of any relationship between these two seismic events, but earthquakes occurring so close together in time in the nation's capital and the former "sex-change capital of the world"...well, that's ripe for, you know, interpretation Jimmy Swaggart-style if a thing ever was.

And if we just helped an idiot somewhere make that connection, sorry. Somebody was going to.

Little known fact about Katrina. Everyone likes to point fingers at the big politicos, but in reality, there were some pretty common, everyday office people that caused major farkups. I used to work with one of those people. Before he was let go of the company I work at, he was let go from a large industrial supply company, mostly because he farked up the logistics of several large government supply orders that were heading to the relief efforts. They didn't get out of the distribution centers and onto trucks as quickly and efficiently as they could have. Things you never really think about.

No, we just moved on. Obama is currently in charge and responsible for everything that happens during his term. If someone can take all the credit for things that go right or work out finally in his term (events that began long before he hit office), then the same goes for the negative aspects as well.

The problem here is that Fartbongo is already such an epic failure that he's completely exhausted all historical comparisons. We need to start inventing new words to explain how terrible a president he truly is.

I like "telebotanicrat", as he is phoning in his leadership from the green. Also, the completely new word "gronlit", which I am defining as "a unit of measure regarding failure approximately equal in measure to the first 100 days of the first term of Barack Obama's Presidency", and the corollary "gronlitard", a person who performs an act of such failure equal or greater to one gronlit. For larger amounts of failure, we'll use the metric prefix system, so a hectogronlitard is someone who has performed an act or acts sufficient to total 100 gronlits.

We've still got commercial failures:

This is Obama's Zune.

I assumed the earthquake was his fault to begin with.
 
2011-08-23 04:35:47 PM  
Yeah, but this was a black earthquake.
 
2011-08-23 04:36:49 PM  

Ring of Fire: The problem here is that Fartbongo is already such an epic failure that he's completely exhausted all historical comparisons. We need to start inventing new words to explain how terrible a president he truly is.

I like "telebotanicrat", as he is phoning in his leadership from the green. Also, the completely new word "gronlit", which I am defining as "a unit of measure regarding failure approximately equal in measure to the first 100 days of the first term of Barack Obama's Presidency", and the corollary "gronlitard", a person who performs an act of such failure equal or greater to one gronlit. For larger amounts of failure, we'll use the metric prefix system, so a hectogronlitard is someone who has performed an act or acts sufficient to total 100 gronlits.

We've still got commercial failures:

This is Obama's Zune.
This is Obama's New Coke.
This is Obama's Crystal Pepsi.
This is Obama's Jingle All the Way.


So, you're already on board with actually blaming him for an earthquake? Sweeeet.
 
2011-08-23 04:36:54 PM  
There was an earthquake?

This is Obama's October Surprise.

22 seconds to recess

"Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware presided over a 22-second technical session in a conference room in Postal Square, a building next to Union Station and two blocks northeast of the Capitol."

The Senate can move really fastwhen it wants to--the extraordinary session was needed because, although most of the Senators are out of town, the Senate was not formally recessed.

Democratic Sen. Chris Coons of Delaware presided over a 22-second technical session in a conference room in Postal Square, a building next to Union Station and two blocks northeast of the Capitol.

Full text of that session, as imagined by Brantgoose:

Senator Coons: Do I have a motion to recess?
Senator X: Yes.
Senator Coons: Second that?
Senator Y: Yes.
Senator Coons: I declare the Senate recessed. See yah all later.

So what the fark are you mad about? Let me get this straight...Republicans hate Obama because he acts like a Republican?

You know, I think he IS a plant. I think Obama was planted by aliens to prove that a black man can do EVERYTHING bigots ask and they'd still find a reason to hate him. Hypothesis proven, space man. Experiment over. I think you have all the evidence you need.

I am 34. I have lived in Virginia for all but 6 months of my life. I have always wanted to experience an earthquake (a "safe" one).

I thought it was really cool. I just can't understand all the turboderp about this event. I'd always read a 5-6 was yawner for Californians.

You know what? It was just "really cool" for a Virginia who never, ever felt an earthquake before. Scary? No. Just cool as hell. To me anyway.

I wished it had lasted longer because by the time I realized what it was, it was just about done.

/oh wait, everything is

hehe... wtf is there to be mad at Obama about? Can you copypasta some posts?


Certainly, here's a direct lift:

Where is the president when a 5.9 earthquake hits from VA to NY, oh wait, he is golfing.... Where is the leader of the USA while we are in a rescission, oh wait, he is drinking wine at one of the most expensive resorts of our country. What a douche!
4 people like this.
Comments:
1) double like lol
2) Oh, come on now! Everyone deserves a vaca with thier family! He can't control earthquakes, precious!
3) you dont deserve one when you "run" a country.. and you definitely dont deserve one when you run a country into the ground lol..
4) Who are you? lol. And to take a vacation at Marthar's Vineyard, one of the most elite resorts in the country and our Nation is in recession and in debt up to our ears, not to mention that our troupes are fighting their asses of in the hot desserts of Afghanistan, and all of his "Great Ideas," on trying to change this country is failing us more than helping.... yeah he REALLY deserves a vacation! lol

elchip: jennyz: Where did the "Fartbongo" thing come from?

Some totally not-racist conservatives have called him Obongo.

To make light of all the ridiculous nicknames conservatives have bestowed upon the President, someone coined "Fartbama."

Then, someone put them together.


It was amusing to watch the terms come into existence. Oddly enough when "fartbama" and later "fartbongo" came onto the scene the right-wing penchant for making up stupid and/or racist names seemed to enter a decline.

0bama and similar nonsense is back now, of course, but there was a down cycle.

Don't worry, there will be more. In the fracking business we don't call them earthquakes though. We like to think of them as earth hugs. It's the earth thanking you for relieving it of gas. It feels good.

As a new resident of DC just arriving from Hawaii...

I was less than mildly stirred by the quake.
I was happy to be without fear of being washed out to Penguin Bank.
I was tickled by reactions of the indigenous.

Anonymous Bosch: I didn't realize Roger Simon worked for Politico now. When even the Baltimore Sun- which is crooked, useless, and in the pocket of the local government -won't let you work for them anymore, you have seriously fallen.

And here's the way to tell if you're right about what God made the earthquake for: go beat your head against a rock as hard as you can. If you're still absolutely certain after 25 times, you've probably got it right. But try another 25 times just to be certain.


Your estimate was low. And I have a headache. You sure it wasn't made by moving chunks of planet grinding or changing height? Possibly due to pressure and maybe additional settlement long after two giant chunks of planet smashed the shiat out of each other?

Dunno what God had to do with it though. Should I keep hitting myself with the rock? Following instructions on Fark is hard. Also, does counting count as math? If so then I was told there would be no math.

2. Ten years later, the GOP is still blaming Clinton for things. Heck, we still hear them blame CARTER for stuff.

So take your well-earned butthurt elsewhere. I only respond this way because you are leeching off of someone else's comment that actually was funny. Plus your PS sucks (either your skills or your taste in PSs to display.)

The article itself was funny enough in a groaner kind of way.

What's funnier is watching the conservatives line up to chant "BLAMEBUSHBLAMEBUSHBLAMEBUSHBLAMEBUSH", leveling an imaginary charge that never happened to deflect from a very real level of stupidity that did (from their camp, naturally).

It takes a special level of pathetic to watch some members of your team get caught with their pants down saying something absurdly stupid and attempt to turn that around and blame Obama for it in the same way.

2011-08-23 06:01:21 PM  
I'm in DC, felt the earthquake and believe that so far this is no big deal. What exactly is FEMA supposed to do? There's nothing here that a few plumbers and maybe a few cops and firemen can't take care of. Sure, it's going to be a little busier than normal, but these guys are just supposed to go do their thing.

Now to everyone who is laughing about "he's going to blame this on Bush too" should SHUT THE FARK UP! Bush really did drive this country into a cliff in a myriad of different ways and to say anything else is to ignore reality. Then again, that's the new right wing nut play book through and through.

captain_heroic44: zefal: If it was Bush the dems and their handmaidens in the media would already have a ten page outline for his criminal negligence. nancy pelosi is probably trying out lines of condemnation in front of her mirror directed at Bush as I type this.

nancy pelosi: "If only Bush didn't spend money on throwing out that nice man, saddam, we would have had they money for the anti-earthquake machine in the green jobs bill!"

Conservatives either lack the cognitive capacity to distinguish between blaming Bush for Katrina, and blaming Bush for his administration's inept response to Katrina, or they are just liars.

Which is it in your case?


The democrat governor didn't ask for a declaration of a stae of emergency until after the hurricane passed through. The National Guard units take three days to assemble. The state governments are told not to expect federal relief for up to 5 days. I don't blame the governor for declaring a state of emergency until after because..... The hurricane was a category 3 when it hit landfall and didn't hit New Orleans directly. The levees were expected to overflow but that was it. If the levees had withstood their designed capacity and anyone mentioned hurricane Katrina to you today you would ask hurricane who? It would have been a forgetable event. When the levees imploded that changed everything. That's when the blame game started and the media never missing an opportunity to go after a Republican under any pretext kicks in. democrat president (see the way they covered the floods in Iowa and completely ignored the fires in Texas and ignored obama ignoring Perry's request for federal assistance as examples) with the same result you would have completely different coverage. North Corlina suffered a hurricane that caused severe flooding that hit during the clinton presidency and left the area devastated for months and the media after doing their shrill and shriek mode for Bush Sr. and the hurricane that smashed Florida doing the end of his first and last term didn't bat an eye about the length of time for the assistance to arrive and for the recovery time it took.

Look at gun runner. If that had been a Republican administered program with the true intent to follow the guns to Mexico and capture the bad guys that had ended up with the same results with the dead Mexicans and federal agents the media would be in full shrill and shriek mode over the fark up. Where as you have an obama program which was designed to not capture Mexican bad guys but set up US gun dealers as the bad guys so they could shut them down. The media is completely silent save for cbs that has covered the story only in perfunctory manner and the washington compost that has done stories running interference for holder and obama and doing its best to blah blah and pooh pooh away the scandal.

In the end you are the stooge/victim of their (democrats and their propagandists in the media) ideological driven coverage. Where have all the war protestors gone? Well most were protesting for politcally driven purpose and the ones that were protesting for real and still are are no longer of any use to the democrat dominated media propaganda complex now that the magical unicorn man is president. As soon as the democrats took control of the house and senate and cindy sheehan went to hold them to their word about defunding the wars the media took away cindy's "moral authority" and threw her in the garbage like they do for all of their useful tools when they are no longer useful.

I wasn't in CA when the quake hit in '89, so I don't remember where it hit exactly, but I've always called it the World Series Quake. The media is acting like the epicenter of the quake was under the White House, when it was 90 miles away. I'm just tired of everyone thinking DC is a part of Virginia. No Virginian would ever make that claim, or even brag about our proximity to it. Heck, most of us don't even consider anything north of Charlottesville to be a part of VA.

You still have not answered the question presented. Until you admit you are either stupid, dishonest, or both you're not worth talking to.

That makes no sense. You are from a part of VA that doesn't respect another part of VA, and that gives you the ability to say they aren't actually Virginians?
