AMERICA ON THE WAYNE DEPT.
THE GREAT BLIGHT WAY DEPT.
In the shameful tradition of the debt ceiling and fiscal cliff debates comes yet another bipartisan stalemate that proves our government is completely and hopelessly incompetent — the Sequester! With Draconian cuts in the federal budget scheduled for Friday unless a deal is reached, the ongoing drama has all the elements of a terrible Broadway musical!
President Obama’s relentless drone attacks on top Al-Qaeda members have made a real impact, systematically wiping out the top echelon of the terrorist network. Most recently, a missile took out the group’s “number two” man, Abu Yahya al-Libi. And although Abu now gets to live the good (after)life with 72 virgins, he leaves behind the last known leader (and perhaps last remaining member) of Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahri. Cave life for Ayman must be pretty lonely — but don't worry, Ayman, even if President Obama goes on vacation, we don't think he’ll be forgetting you.
After peeing on Taliban corpses, accidentally burning the Koran and a tragic shooting spree by a deranged soldier, it’s not exactly shocking that America has failed to win the hearts and minds of the Afghani people. Today, Afghan President Hamid Karzai asked President Obama to get U.S. troops out of his country NOW! Like Vietnam and more recently, Iraq, we’ve seen this movie before.
