Friday Facepalm

Just when you think the Obama administration can’t get any more embarrassing:

Russia sends troops, Obama administration sends a selfie

Russian leader Vladmir Putin sent in troops and tanks to invade neighboring Ukraine and the Obama administration is coming to the rescue with . . . selfies!

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was mocked Thursday after posting a photo of herself on Twitter holding a sign that read #United­For­Ukraine @State­Dept­Spox.”

Psaki, who has worked closely with President Obama since his 2008 campaign and is the chief communications adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry, is smiling and giving a thumbs-up in the photo.

Is it too early to start drinking? I really need to get a medical marijuana card for stress reduction. This shit is humiliating.

    I really need to be drunk to write a proper post for this stupidity. It deserves a drunken rant.

      We have children in the WH, DoS, DoJ. These are worse than adolescents! Suddenly tweeting is diplomats’ means of communications. Ellen and The Daily Show are the Voices of America. What next? Facebook – only for nations that have FB pages !?! ffs

      In other presidential activities representing America abroad, Obama visited the ancient Roman Colosseum Thursday. Looking out on the precious, historic ruins whose construction began 1,944 years ago, the Harvard grad, profound thinker and current President of the United States observed:

      “This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums.”

      Richard Nixon visiting the Great Wall of China:

      “That is a great wall.”

        Obama off on a Saudi Arabian pilgrimage now

        Be interesting to read what Haji Barack says if he visits Mecca:

        “That building looks like a cube.”

        • Erica says:

          Why is the president of the United States going on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia? Paying off part of his student loan dept??

      KK pretty much agrees with most of us here that the SoS position was to keep her out of BO’s hair. Shoulda, woulda, coulda stayed in the Senate, kept her foot on his neck and challenged him again in 2012. Something else happened, she was blackmailed, threatened or something worse ? Unfortunately none of this will come out in her newest book.

    when it gets to the point that your first thought in reading this headline is ” Only Two” you know it is bad

  10. helenk3 says:

    do not have to agree, but how many Americans know why and what Putin’s reasoning is over the Ukraine

    • r u reddy says:

      The Ukraine issue has been getting deep and detailed discussion at (Retired) Colonel Pat Lang’s blog Sic Semper Tyrannis. He was an intelligence officer. Many of his reader/commenters are military or former military, former diplomats, former intelligence people, etc.

    Via Hot Air:

    Yesterday, the spirit of this mission was disregarded by Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux in a personal Twitter exchange between herself and RNC Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams. In part of the exchange, Lemieux responded to an attempt at discourse from Williams with words that curtly dismissed him and his suggestion that she be interested in the “diversity of thought.” She also misidentified him, unintentionally, as White. Williams is Black.

    EBONY strongly believes in the marketplace of ideas. As the magazine of record for the African American community, Lemieux’s tweets in question do not represent our journalistic standard, tradition or practice of celebrating diverse Black thought. …

    EBONY acknowledges Senior Editor Jamilah Lemieux’s lack of judgment on her personal Twitter account and apologizes to Raffi Williams and the Black Republican community.

    • DandyTIger says:

      How about apologizing to the entire Black community for the continuing damage that this attitude (from many) has towards intolerance and close mindedness and partisanship. It huts Black Democrats even more than it hurts Black Republicans.

    • 49erDweet says:

      Ebony be wakin’ up to reality is an interesting development. I can’t remember this ever happening before. Is it an anomaly or a sea-change? This could be disastrous for the Felony-in-Office Party.

  12. Lulu says:

    I guess they are still really into soft power and social media. One of the things the internet has made all too clear is just how silly and vapid Democrats really are. I thought they were just dumb or brain washed or even venal but they are really silly and very lazy. Why work on policy when you can just twit your stupid mug with a scrawled inanity on a piece of cardboard.

    I had some bare spots on my front lawn along the sidewalk and driveway, so I put down some grass seed and covered it with topsoil.

    The neighborhood cats love their new litterbox.

  14. helenk3 says:

    just watched some TV comments on states opting out of the common core program.
    I can not think of any government program that hurts the future of the country then obamacare and common core.
    one breaks the country economically and lowers the health care of American people, the other cheats the children out of a good education and a future.
    both are eagerly embraced by the backtrack bunch

  15. helenk3 says:

    more than obamacare and common core

    The Five Types of Sex:

    1) SMURF SEX.
    This takes place when you first start dating and you both keep doing it until you’re blue in the face.

    When you first start living together, you’ll have sex anywhere, anytime, even in the kitchen.

    You’ve calmed down a bit, perhaps have kids, so you gotta do it in the bedroom.

    This is where you pass each other in the hallway and say, “FUCK YOU!”

    This is when you get divorced and your spouse’s lawyer screws you in front of everyone in the courtroom.

    So I was standing in line at Osama bin Liquor store and I notice this college-age hottie in a tube top and shorts. I WAS NOT ogling or staring – I swear to beer!

    I barely glanced at her when she looks my way and we make eye contact. Before I can even look away she gives me her best bitchface and snarls, “What are you looking at?”

    I lied and said “I was looking at that booger hanging from your nose.”

    (All of the foregoing was true and correct except that last sentence.)

    Watching Elysium (for free) and not sure how much I can take. This is the most heavy-handed left-wing propaganda since Trial of Billy Jack.

    We’ve heard more about the missing plane than about our very own mudslide disaster.
    Received a detailed message from a trusted pal with friends on the scene in Oso, WA, who are involved in search efforts in the mudslide devasted community. His friend is a fire department chaplain in nearby Bryant, WA, and working in Oso with the local community chapel staff.

    ” Pray particularly for those involved in the ongoing search (now more expecting to find victims rather than survivors) and for families as death notifications by local chaplains begin to step up.  The process of identifying the dead is very detailed and time consuming -very distressing to those who are pretty certain their loved one(s) are gone.”

    Apparently Oso chapel has developed an interesting three step plan for helping with the surviving residents. It’s too involved to post here, but I’d be happy to forward the one page MS Word attachment to anyone requesting it to my name at gmail dot com, no extra charge. The chapel’s donation site can be reached through
