I see that another passenger decided to act the fool on an international flight and messed with our collective psyche again. That's not good.
Of course, once again, we can rely on our friends in the rethuglican party and their propaganda arm over at FAKE NEWS to blame this latest terror scare on his O ness. ArtMagott's picture* is meant to be a joke, but to some folks on the right it' not funny; it's fact.
"Rep. Pete Hoekstra told Fox News' Chris Wallace Sunday that it is "fair" to hold the Obama administration responsible for the a failure to detect an attempted terror attack. Friday, Hoekstra told the Detroit Free Press that the Obama administration needed to "connect the dots."
"You were quoted in the Detroit Free Press this morning as saying that, you know, the key is to connect the dots and maybe the Obama administration will now realize that. Is it really fair to hold the Obama administration responsible here?" asked Wallace.
"Yeah, I think it really is," replied Hoekstra. "Connecting the dots here is not really on this particular case. It's connecting the dots that we've seen over the last 11 months, over the last eight years." [story]
Hoekstra now joins a long line of winguts with their heads up their asses.
And while we are talking about wingnuts and their Obama derangement syndrome, let's not forget about Peter King, who declared that what Obama did by not holding a press conference after this latest threat, is the equivalent to what the frat boy did after Katrina. Yes, he said it.
KATRINA! People died and a great A-merry-can city was almost lost. Yet he compares it to an almost tragic event in Detroit. Almost tragic event.
The next three years should be interesting.
