A US President speaking softly to an ally while wielding what amounts to a big stick?

The freepers must be confused. On the one hand, Obama is being criticized. On the other hand, Muslims are upset. What to do, what to do.

So, can we safely assume he was speaking softly?

propasaurus: Atillathepun: Neeek: Jim_Callahan: St_Francis_P: Where'd he get that bat? Did he get it from a helpless Little League kid? A white kid, who trusted him because he's supposedly our "President"? I'm just asking questions.

Nope, full-sized bat, not a little league bat. Obviously he stole it from a stadium full of fans to deprive as many as 100k people at once of the simple joy of America's favorite pastime.

Na. It was Hank Aaron's bat. He retired awhile back.

yet another job lost under Obama

I guess a white guy's bat was too good for him?


Hank Aaron's nickname was "Hammerin'" Hank. Obama's favorite sportswriter is John Sickels. Coincidence? I think not. You can't make this stuff up!

PC LOAD LETTER: So, NOW is Sarah Palin automatically President and Obama has to be the bathroom attendant in Congress? These rules are so confusing.


This means Sarah Palin is automatically President and Obama has to coach a team of plucky losers to an unlikely victory, and maybe, just maybe, learn a little something about himself.

A man becomes preeminent, he's expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms, enthusiasms... What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball! A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork... Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team. Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on. If his team don't field... what is he? You follow me? No one. Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? I'm goin' out there for myself. But... I get nowhere unless the team wins.

I'm probably going about this all wrong, but how do they know who's on the other end of the line? It might be Michelle

Geeze. It's not like he was sitting there dressed only in a Turkish towel. Although that does conjur up a yummy image.

This, once again, illustrates Obummer's incompetence in foreign diplomacy. He wasn't even concerned with his appearance over the phone to the Turkish Prime Minister.

WTF is this guy's problem?

The real scoop here is that when you're the President, you can take any artifact from Warehouse 13 that you want.

beantowndog: Obama killed a turkey with a baseball bat and we're just making jokes about it? Where's the outrage? President Palin would appoint turkeys to cabinet positions to avoid this sort of thing.


Yeah, not so much.

OMG .... A black man with a stick.

Seems like a good time to panic, if you ask me.


/Also, it's a black man on a black phone holding a white stick. This means something, I don't know what ....but it surely means something.
