yeah, Limbaugh was ranting about this earlier today.  Kerry mispronounced Kyrgyzstan which means Romney is automatically president and Obama lost the Oscars.

didn't make much sense to me either but he spent an hour on the subject so it must be important to Republicans.

And now it's time for people who defended Herman Cain to show up and be hypocrites.

I'm sure Kyrgyzstanis mangle American words too.

As long as he doesn't invade any foreign countries, I can live with this.

I didn't realise he needed defending. A man who says Uzbeki-beki-beki-stan-stan clearly lives by his own rules, he needs to defending. He is god.

However if anyone criticised Cain and now says it doesn't matter when Kerry does it, does that not make them, also, hypocrites?

This is Kerry's Benghazi.

Kyrzakhstan? Is that next to Uzbeki-beki-beki-stan?

John Kerry is going to be comedy gold.  Jon Stewart must be counting his renewals all the way to the bank.

Is that north of Uzbekibekibekistanstan? I can't keep the geography of that region straight.

Kerry might have mangled the pronounciation, but I bet you he knows who its leader is.

It's as much or more of a big deal than Romney's so called gaffe's during his overseas trip that liberals howled about for weeks.
 
2013-02-25 07:35:50 PM
Clearly a nefarious plot by the socialist dictator Barry HUSSEIN Shartbongo to fulfill his plans of diminishing American Exceptionalism. Hang them all and let Republican Jesus sort them out.

OK, but let's not forget John Kerry wasn't Obama's first choice for the role. Happy now, Republicans?

Former Bush supporters now upset over Secretary of State who mispronounces country they never even knew existed before today.

To be fair lots of people including me keep mispronouncing Limbaugh's name.  I know it should be pronounced something like lim-baw but it keeps coming out as "malodorous shiatstain"
 
2013-02-25 07:42:32 PM
I question the usage of "time-honored".  A failed candidate and nothing else outside of the past decade does not constitute anything of the sort.
 
2013-02-25 07:46:54 PM
Kerry was later quoted as saying, "Look people...I'm sure your country is great and all, but where I'm from, we have these things called "vowels" and we aren't afraid to use them.  Maybe once you discover them, we'll help you progress towards things like fire and the wheel.  Until then, however, we're gonna have to claim Prime Directive and leave you to your goats.  So...um...bye."
 
2013-02-25 07:54:30 PM
At least John Kerry is mispronouncing it and not trying to find ways to blow it up under false pretenses.

And Kerry's mispronounciation wasn't deliberate.

Because criticizing Bush for his verbal hiccups was equivalent to terrorism.

Limbaugh spent a good bit of today assuring his audience that Obama did, in fact, lose the Oscars.  I personally didn't know he was in the running but Limbaugh went to great lengths to tell the world Obama did not in fact win anything there last night...so there must have been an Obama entry in mix somewhere.

Are they back to claiming that Zero Dark Thirty is Obama propaganda again? Because it wasn't long ago that they reversed course on that, and said it was being snubbed by Hollyweird Lie-berals who were afraid of anything that portrayed the military positively.

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: Excellent work, secretary shovelface McBoring.


John Kerry was a rotten pick for State on just about every level, and it will take an act or two of immaculate brilliance on his part to convince me otherwise. I cringe at the thought of the backroom politics that produced this thing.

Shoulda appointed Palin as Secretary of State. She lives near Russia!!!1

Rush Limbaugh is good at pronouncing the names of all countries that supply him with pills and/or boys.

edmo: Rush Limbaugh says ma-toor for mature, Cominskey Field, etc. yet he has a thing for pronunciations. Usually it's him doing his 14-year old humor. (Buy-a-lick,corpsman)


He also says Hugo "Sha"-vez, and "Shy"-coms when he's referencing Chinese government. He mispronounces things on purpose to show his listeners that he doesn't give enough of a crap about these people to pronounce things correctly. (see "Democrat Party" - a bit different, but for the same reason)

I bet he can pronounce "fried CHICKEN" correctly. I never heard him mispronounce the name "Ahmed Chalabi" either.

Does anyone else remember the commercials he used to voice for some kind of vocabulary-building scam? "People JUDGE YOU by the words you use!" he used to exhort to his cabal of retards. Yes, Rush, I judge you too; by the words you mispronounce and by the half-truths you tell. I judge you and find you lacking.

uhoh, that article was a lot of "both sides are bad". Someone shiat their pants in rage, stat!

I heard Kerry was against Kyrzakhstan before he voted for it...

Can you imagine the DoucheCrats buttxplosion if Sarah Palin said something like this?  BoTox Kerry will get a pass on this

Acting like a first rate ass and insulting the country is not like mispronouncing a country.
