    Putting your foot up on the Resolute desk is so much worse than sending thousands of Anericans to die in Iraq.

    I wonder how the receptionist for the Union for the Defense of the Culture, Rights, and Freedoms of the Indigenous Numerically Small Peoples of the Pri-Amurye answers the phone?

    Oh, the story is about very small populations of indigenous peoples in the Russian Far East who want Moscow to intervene to protect them, as it intervened to “protect” Russians in Crimea.

    @Gin & Tonic: I’m afraid the indigenous peoples of the Russian Far East do not quite understand that they are not Russians, and therefore unworthy of being protected.

    What is the appropriate outfit for the Oval office? Shirtless, like Putin?

    Not funny. That sticker gave Jenny McCarthy’s kid autism.

    Villago Delenda Est says:

    @BGinCHI: I think it’s far more likely that the kid saw a rerun of one of Jenny’s MTV appearances from the 90’s and was hit with the Tommy effect.

    Any way to get this bumper sticker without finally succumbing and getting a Facebook account?

    Has anyone posted to wish Duke farewell from the NCAA tourney?

    Don’t let the door hit you in the jackass.

    I assume Burns is on suicide watch.

    I can see putting that bumper sticker on the cars of a few people I know.
    Wonder how long they’d drive around before seeing it and having a heart attack?

    I think he done broke that horse.

    The popup NRA ad for a free NRA Duffle bag has me wondering, why are they naming a membership premium after a Palin kid?

    No. Presidenting while blah one of Those People is inherently wrong. There are plenty of pictures of other presidents with their feet on the desk that didn’t generate anything like the same level of outrage. Anything that Obama does is automatically wrong because of who he is, not because that behavior is especially problematic.

    You can get gay training?!

    You didn’t think they were that fabulous only on natural talent, did you? It takes years of training!

    [ETA: And some of them apparently slept through the class.]

    OMG. I so love that bumper sticker that I just ordered one! Fucking awesome.

    Meanwhile, the GOP has their “hipster” video which was just hilariously parodied by John Oliver.

    Or maybe shirtless, with a gun-in-waistband tattoo, like this Darwin award wannabe candidate

    @Bill Arnold: They’re showing some wonderful tattoos on “Justified” this season what with so many lowlifes both in prison and out. Mostly of the neo-Nazi and neo-Confederate variety.

    @Fluke bucket:

    I hear they are also considering re-signing Namath, and are in talks with Fran Tarkenton. (You know, one passer who can’t walk, to break up the monotony of three running backs who can semi-throw. Although Fran was actually a half-decent passer.)

    Next up for the Jets: Ryan Leaf! You read it hear first! Must credit Drudge SFAW!

    @Steeplejack (tablet):

    Not being a Buckeye (or whatever Ohioanianians call themselves), I’m guessing it’s because Ohio State insists on referring to themselves as THE Ohio State University? If that’s not it, then what joke am I missing?

    @SFAW: That is indeed the joke. Suck on it, OSU.
