Obama Squarepants

Turns out you don’t have to change the Spongebob lyrics much to get a rollicking sea shanty about Obama’s pirate adventure. As sung by Capn Hillary “Barnacle o’ Bill” Clinton, who will be part of a 24-nation response group on Somali piracy, formed under United Nations auspices:

Are ya ready, kids?

Aye Aye, Madam Secretary!



Ohhhhhh! Who lives in the White House in Washington DC?


Absorbant and yellow and porous is he …


If nautical nonsense be somethin you wish,


Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish!


His fan club says 3 dead pirates shows that he’s tough


But we haven’t seen yet if he’s tough enough!






Enough cruel mockery. This is serious business. After all, it’s all about the leadership of the free world, and a Free World Leadership Opportunity just knocked. Gotta answer that one. Good news is, the New Bloodthirstiness is “in.”

Recently in the Green Room:

Even this civilian cat knows that “ the shores of Tripoli…” refers to USMC anti-pirate work.

Obama is not a student of history. (I’m not sure just *what* he’s a student of … other than himself) Otherwise, he’d know that piracy needs to be stepped on *heavily*.

Shame Bush didn’t do more about this before his day ended… but … I can see the front page of the NYT if three pirates had died on his watch. “Innocent youths gunned down by Navy thugs…”

McConnell may not get his wish on health care vote

Top Pick

Senate leadership wants a vote this week, others say, “Negative, Ghost Rider.”

Top Pick

Helping others without the government.

“…the reality is the reality.”

These kiosks don’t make $15 per hour or need benefits

Going for the record

“We will answer them on the field”

Taking it to the limit

Sunday morning talking heads

Jazz Shaw Jun 25, 2017 8:01 AM

Health care and tweeting and Russia, oh my!

Will they stay or will they go?

I can’t imagine what I was thinking when I said that

Rocking the boat majorly

Big government never contracts. It only grows more powerful

It’s only a “ban” until it becomes inconvenient

The decline and fall of Obamacare and the AHCA

Jazz Shaw Jun 24, 2017 8:31 AM

This was all over before it began

Fixing crime in America is a complicated issue

Taylor Millard Jun 23, 2017 8:31 PM

Cops alone won’t solve it.

Victim’s father was President Maduro’s supervisor back when he was a bus driver.

Democrats forgot all about the “era of good feelings”

“Bernie and Jane Sanders have lawyered up.”

“the Judiciary Committee is examining the circumstances surrounding the removal of James Comey.”

Winning isn’t everything. It is the only thing

Trump signs VA reform bill into law

“What happened was a national disgrace, and yet some of the employees involved in these scandals remained on the payrolls.”

A new era of something.

“…died suddenly in less than a week just after his return to the U.S.”

The shortsightedness of “Denounce and Preserve”

Pragmatism for the sake of pragmatism doesn’t always work.

Perhaps if you threw in a new car?

Gay marriages still growing, but not as fast

More, but not as quickly.

Should’ve stuck with the pirate gig. It was working for him

Won’t be much left.

Your list of demands is a publicity stunt

“what happened that day was emblematic of a deeply troubling trend among progressives…”

“The jobs are still leaving. Nothing has stopped.”

Bad vendor. Bad! No cookie!

“The Corps is just starting to grapple with the issues the court has identified.”

“So you want me to sing my praises, is that what you’re saying?”

Why would we possibly want that?

“I mean he sold our country to The Russians.”

I could think of someone else you might want to ask about…
