Readers - just a couple of quick takes today. The cartoon above was inspired by the ridiculous cover on Newsweek magazine which shows Mitt Romney next to a headline which screams "The WIMP Factor: Is He Just Too Insecure To Be President?"
But let's be honest here: when you hear the word "wimp" associated with this presidential race, don't you immediately think of the simpering, petulant little whiner in the Whitehouse?
As Kurt Vonnegut once said, "I could carve a better man out of a banana."
By the way, Obama's sole claim to masculinity appears to be the execution of Osama bin Laden, which he personally watched on television. But even that claim came under renewed fire this week thanks to a book which reaffirms that Obama actually cancelled the raid on the compound three times over a period of months, because Valerie Jarrett thought it would be politically risky. And Barry tried to cancel the final successful mission too...but, uh, somehow it got initiated anyway while he was on the golf course. Being manly.
Newsweek's preposterous story is yet another reason why the magazine's circulation is nearly nonexistent - and why they just announced that they're making (no doubt desperate) plans to give up printing and "go digital" with their make-believe leftist crap.
A Fool and his Money
Also in the news, Barack Obama finally donated $5000 to his own reelection campaign. Considering that alleged comedian Bill Maher donated 200 times that amount, Obama must know something that Maher doesn't. Not that Maher sets the bar very high.
In yet another fundraising letter to his supporters, the soon-to-be ex-president explained that his fiscal act of self-gratification was really symbolic, saying: "We have always believed that there's nothing we can't do when we all pitch in. That includes me."
But seriously, Barry, how much are you actually "pitching in" when you take money out of your left pocket and put it in your right pocket?
But we'll forgive his confusion on this matter. After all, as far as we can tell it's the first time he's taken money from his own pockets.
