This week’s top Mis-spoke award goes to Mosul Marie:
Following in the lip prints of Baghdad Bob the ever affable Marie advises us that the Iraqi army is still “holding the line” just outside the city of Ramadi:
“Hold that line! Hold that line!” Boy, that high school cheerleading experience sure comes in handy now that Marie is the deputy spokesmouth at the State Department.
And did you know that when Marie was an actual high school cheerleader she nearly died from toxic shock syndrome? True story; maybe that explains way some things take a synaptic path around her brain and come out of her mouth.
Anyway, after she recovered she reported with wisdom beyond her 16 years that “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” In her ever growing wisdom and maturity she more recently advised us that “we cannot kill our way out of this war.” I guess that’s her way of saying we’re stronger now than when George W. Bush was in charge.
I’m thinking her most recent missive however may have been referring to the way the Iraqi army has been bravely holding the line against Global Warming outside their key cities; you know, like Big Guy discussed with the Coast Guard grads:
“No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. And so we need to act— and we need to act now.”
Which brings me to this week’s Mis-misunderstanding award which, obviously, goes to Barry:
Just because it’s raining doesn’t mean the climate is changin’.
I didn't quite believe it when I heard that America's commander-in-chief had addressed the graduating class of the Coast Guard Academy and delivered a speech about climate change. But it's true:
This brings me to the challenge I want to focus on today -- one where our Coast Guardsmen are already on the front lines, and that, perhaps more than any other, will shape your entire careers -- and that's the urgent need to combat and adapt to climate change.
What a bore this time of year is. There seems to be only a couple of topics the ever shrinking list of approved speakers get to talk about to America's youth. So Obama droned on about climate change and Mann-boosting hack Bill Nye the Science Guy discoursed on race. Maybe someone switched their speeches. – Mark Steyn
And there really wasn’t any contest for the Lie of the week: hands down to Hillary. Take your pick: for “mis-remembering to report $26 million in speaking fees, or for flat out lying about the video that prompted the Benghazi attack. So you can spend the holiday weekend reading the 80,000 redacted Hillary emails which will be officially dumped later today for public consumption. Or if you’d rather just have a weenie roast instead, that’s fine too.
Because, you know, what difference, at this point, does it make?
THIS WEEK’S MIS-SPOKE, MIS-MISUNDERSTANDING AND LIE IS BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE BIG BAD WOLF. WATCH OUT, MY LITTLE LAMBS.
