Tee hee: Clapper jokes at banquet about reading people’s e-mails

See, it’s funny because … it’s apparently totally possible, and Clapper lied about it in front of Congress, and now he’s going to play it off as a big joke.

You need to be able to laugh at yourself in life. Or at the fellow citizens you’re spying on. Either way.

And Dear Liar “joked” about siccing the IRS on his political opponents. They’re really rubbing our faces in it.

Jeepers, creepers, where the hell did we get these peepers?

In perhaps the evening’s most unusual moment, DNI Clapper, after aides had passed out lyric sheets, led the crowd in a teasing summary of Hayden’s career sung to the tune of the hymns of the four military services. He was accompanied on electric guitar by INSA member Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, a defense technology enthusiast and former member of the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan.

I guess Rikki couldn’t lose that number even if she had a change of heart.

It is nothing to laugh about chucklehead. Where did all these morons come from?

Gen. Clapper needs to have his a$$ CUBO’d (Art-133).

I can see it now:

Clapper trial, day 187.

Clapper in the stand; prosecutor begins cross-examination:

Prosecutor: “Mr. Clapper…..what was your involvment with PRISM? When did you first become aware of the program?”

Clapper: “Well, it was certainly before June 7, 2009. I remember that because on that date, thats when you and Mrs. Tannenbaum met at Starbucks at 3:58 pm, and had a snack.”

Prosecutor: “………..”

Judge: “Does the state have any more questions?”

Prosecutor: “No, your honor, the state rests”

Remember when Clapper used to at least try to act like he was really playing hard ball with this admin? Good times, good times…

If Clapper hadn’t said extraordinarily naive statements about Islam, I would defend his joke. I think he should be knowledgeable about enemies in this position, but I guess being naive about Islam is a requirement for serving in the Obama administration.

Obama also joked about buzzing NYC with Air Force One.
