Skleenar: "Look, the perception of Obama, of him and his potency across the world is one of such weakness," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity. "People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."

This is such a paean to the virtue of propaganda, it is only fitting it was said on the US's own propaganda network.

Yes, the guy who had the SEALs take out those Somali pirates, the guy who got Bin Laden, the guy whose best friend Droney just can't kill enough brown people, totally seen as weak. Just because he doesn't do the retarded chest thumping, doesn't mean the world sees him as weak.

October 23rd, 1983. Ronald Reagan was President of the United States.
What stood out then, particularly on television, was the toll of 241 dead at Marine BLT Barracks at Beirut Airport. Yet on the 30th Anniversary last week, in 2013, nothing appeared on television to commemorate those losses. Not a word on network news or the commentary shows.
These were revenge killings; for Muslims, the term "retaliation" is more appropriate. In all, four truck bombs killed 398 people to take revenge for months of Ronald Reagan using the offshore guns of the U.S. Navy to shell Lebanese villages. Those bombardments killed more than a thousand people, slaughtering Druze and Muslims indiscriminately. The technology for the bombs was provided by Iran. There, for the Iran-Iraq War, Reagan had reversed Jimmy Carter's Executive Order and taken to supplying material support for Saddam Hussein. This despite Saddam's use of nerve gas to kill tens of thousands of Iranians, including civilians.

"Teach them a lesson" from Reagan in the Oval Office had produced unanticipated consequences.

Danger Mouse: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Sarah who?


She was governor of Alaska, the GOP nominee for Vice President in 2008. Bestselling author, news commentator. There's rumors she may run for the U.S Senate this year.

She's currently in the news because she was heavily ridiculed in the 2008 elections for her foreign policy experience and made the prediction that Putin would eventually invade the Ukraine.

Love her, hate her, of indifferent, anyone with quantum of political knowledge is quite aware of who she is.

Yeah, no, I mean I get the joke, but seriously, that can't be the actual reason. There's usually  some internal consistency to Republicans, even if it's just 'JEEBUS' or 'OBAMA BAD'. This reads more like 'multiple people with weird BDSM fantasies they have yet to work out' and that's just...that doesn't seem possible, does it?

Oh right, I forgot. "Obama bad, and Putin doesn't always listen to Obama." That plus Putin hates the homogheys and he's such a dreamy authoritarian.

Seriously, Listen to them. "Putin is a better leader and Obama is a horrible dictator!" Meanwhile, Putin's 'leadership' comes in the form of "Do what I say or else."

It appears there new "thing" is pointing out how MANLY and MACHO and HE-MAN they are is the new thing.  Reagan was that way, riding horses and stuff.  Bush cleared Bush AND rode horses.

Obama?  Mom-jeans gey, apparently.

Now PUTIN, he's a man.  A REAL MAN.  It doesn't make sense that he isn't American, him being ALL MAN and all.

Not only is the GOP waging a war on women, they're waging a war on men who aren't manly, too.

Bush never (or very, very rarely) rode horses. Mexican President Vicente Fox said that Bush was afraid of them. He called Bush a "windshield cowboy."

Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a "windshield cowboy" - a cowboy who prefers to drive - and "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life".

The Republican right, as has been evidenced by their own statements repeatedly, has a hard-on for dictatorial fascists. Later today, Jonah Goldberg will wonder why people constantly label the American right-wing fascists, because he knows (KNOWS) that liebruls are the real fascists. The cognitive dissonance in a normal person would cause a personality break, but for the American right-wing it's nothing.

2014-03-05 01:37:49 PM  

Mentat: ekdikeo4: Someone answer me this, because I'm too young to remember specifics --

 Did we (the US) have armed forces in a continuous conflict or "peace keeping" phase at any point during Reagan's presidency?  I'm reasonably certain that between Bush 1 and now, we've had continuous forces at conflict in the middle east, but all I remember from the Reagan era was dropping bombs on Libya and somewhere in South America (Panama?).  It seems weird that, if that's the case, the one guy that everyone assumed was going to start WW3 may have been the least aggressive of our leaders since I've been alive ...  (not counting Carter, he wasn't aggressive at all, but his hands were tied by other's actions, and I was only 4 when Carter left office, so I can't really speak too much about that)

We were keeping peace all over the place.  Except for Beirut.  Those motherfarkers in Grenada learned a harsh lesson after that incident.


Well, technically, we're sort of "peace keeping" in Germany, Japan, Korea, as well, but those have been pretty much dead conflicts for the last 50+ years.

OK, I seem to vaguely recall some thing about Grenada, I'll dig up info on that.  Still, it seems like we've been in continuous direct conflict since Gulf War 1, whereas I don't recall that being the case prior.

Well Obama thought differently when debating Romeny.

Gov. Romney, I'm glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what's the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida. You said Russia ... the 1980s, they're now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War's been over for 20 years,"

It's refreshing  to find so many Farkers in agreement with Palin and Romney.

"Not the biggest geo-political threat" =/= "Not a threat".

It's refreshing to find so many Farkers in agreement with Palin and Romney.

Isn't it? Especially when it's agreeing with something completely unrelated to the thread: this one is about her comments that Obama is unmanly because he wears a particular style of jeans and Putin is manly bnecause he "wrestles bears" -- because THAT doesn't sound gay AT ALL.

But congratulations on winning an argument no one was having.

Um you know that Putan doesn't actually wrestle bears, right? That her comment was a metaphor for thier leadership? That we've been discussing leadership styles, the riducule Palin saw when she commented on Russia, and frussian  policy.  Yep, I threw Romeny in their for extra credit, but your response suggests to me that you haven't been paying attention, or really don't even know what you are talking about.

Why do you always make it about being gay? what's that got to do with this?

Yes.

Danger Mouse: That we've been discussing leadership styles, the riducule Palin saw when she commented on Russia, and frussian  policy.


Mostly because, while Sara Palin didn't actually say, "I can see Moscow from here" (quote and unquote), that quote does pretty much sum up the response Palin herself gave as to her Russian foreign-policy experience:
Charles Gibson: "What insight into Russian actions particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of this state give you?"
Sara Palin: "They're our next door neighbors. And you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska."
~11 September 2008 appearance on ABC News, Palin's first major interview after being tapped as the vice-presidential nominee

Danger Mouse: Yep, I threw Romeny in their for extra credit, but your response suggests to me that you haven't been paying attention, or really don't even know what you are talking about.


Maybe it should suggest to you that I have no idea what you are talking about. You'll really have to be more specific for me to make observations.

Unless you meant my pointing out that Obama said that Russia wasn't the biggest threat, as opposed to no threat (which seemed to be what you were driving at), which, yes, somehow shows that clearly that I have no idea what I am talking about.

Danger Mouse: Why do you always make it about being gay? what's that got to do with this?


I "always make it about being gay"? o_O

That said, it was a joke.

Wait, lemme try it like this:

Um you know that "bear" is a slang term for "a large, hairy man who projects an image of rugged masculinity", right? And that "wrestling bears" could thus be perceived (albeit childishly) as a euphemism for one's sexual predilections? And that the bear "image" is frequently exaggerated for image's sake? Kind of like Putin and all those photo-ops of him being "manly"?

Of course you did.

Danger Mouse: How does one go from stating that Putin is a leader to be taken seriously to "Putin Love" or "shillin for Putan"?


Are you saying Putin is a leader?
