Silly disputes

So if anyone's been following the news lately, there's been a lot going on. I don't really feel like getting into too much, but a bunch of people died in southeast Asia and the gays are taking over the world.

But the thing that caught my ear yesterday was the back and forth about a veiled attack President Bush laid out in a speech in Israel's Knesset. Though he and his minions denied it later, the comments sounded suspiciously like calling Barack Obama a Nazi sympathizer for considering opening talks with Iran.
First, he equated Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with Hamas, Hezbollah and Osama bin Laden. Then: "Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along. We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is -- the false comfort of appeasement."
(Fun fact: The senator he mentions was actually a Republican. Lolz.)

This of course led to cannon fire from the USS Obama, then defensive maneuvering from Senior Distraction Expert and White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, then incessant swearing from Delaware's own Joe Biden - or as I like to call him, Dover's Finest.

"Biden said, 'This is bullshit. This is malarky. This is outrageous.' "

Some people didn't like this for some reason. He went on:

" 'He is the guy who has weakened us,' he said. 'He has increased the number of terrorists in the world. It is his policies that have produced this vulnerability that the U.S. has. It’s his [own] intelligence community [that] has pointed this out, not me.' "

Bang-a-rang, Biden-o!

He then grabbed onto a vine and swung across the Senate floor, where he jumped on his skateboard, rode up an 8 foot ramp, nailed a backside 540 and then skated off into the sunset.
