This "Umbrellagate" thing is getting out of hand. Wingnuts still can't get over the fact that president Obama asked a young
"It is against the law and Marine protocol for crying out loud! This Negro done lost his mind!"
I know I know. The word uppity comes to mind.
"Of course, there's no rule against the president acting like a selfish asshole. That just comes naturally to Obama. We used to have dignity in our presidents, especially when George W. Bush was in office. This president is just an egotistical prick."

"Yes, the Marines are often forced to get wet while standing outside the White House because they cannot hold an umbrella. Yes, the Marine Corps uniform regulations state a Marine cannot hold an umbrella. But Marine spokesman Capt.

So when the President asks you to hold an umbrella over his head, you hold an umbrella over his head."
"It didn't matter that there's a long history of Marines and Secret Service members holding umbrellas for the President, no matter which side of the aisle they represent. It also didn't matter that there are easily discoverable pictures of Sarah Palin having an umbrella held for her. They wanted to add more headaches to the President's very bad week. But, oh well. So much for Umbrellagate. It had a nice ring to it, too. "
More desperation from the right. Although I can't say that I blame them. Three "scandals" in one week and the man's approval rating didn't even take a hit.
Sorry guys, it would take his Oness having an affair with Kerry Washington to get most Americans to pay attention. That's just how we are built here in these divided states of America.
