Obama Is Rethinking Pullout in Afghanistan, Officials Say

    Emperor Barry imposing peace and order on any situation that can be made to go truly chaotic with minimal effort on his part seems very unlikely.

    Hah! Obama. “Thinking”.
    I don’t care who y’are, that’s funny right there.

      I just think the phrase ‘Obama rethinking a pullout’ is funny as hell.
      I’m not a gifted enough joke writer to run with it.

        If only Ann Dunham had done it, Dancer. If only.

          Ever wonder if it is a coincidence that Lena Dunham is around, too?

            You know what? I never thought about that until you mentioned it, DDTTR.
            And now I don’t want to think about it. It’s too twisted; and therefore – likely.
