Archives for posts with tag: marathon is a story that actually turned the Crankometer down a few notches. One Lelisa Desisa, winner of this year’s Boston Marathon, will be returning from his home in Ethiopia to donate his medal to the city in a show of solidarity with the victims of the bombing.

In a  nation whose Congress would let homeless disaster victims starve to death rather than provide aid to them, this man shows us how good humans can be. Bless him.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky

Lindsey Graham, among others, has been blaming the Boston Marathon Bombing on the Obama administration. Because? Well, as far as Mr. Blunt and Cranky can tell, the Repub’s reason boils down to “because f*** Obama”. They would have us believe that the Dems are “soft on crime” and “weak on terrorism”, and other such nonsensical twaddle. Because, well, “f*** Obama”.

Let’s look at some actual results, and see how well this incredibly intellectual analysis holds up, shall we? We shall, oh yes, we shall: terrorist attacks on American soil.

9/11: Bush The Dumber fumbles, flops, disappears, and comes back with a megaphone-aided photo op. He caught very few of the perpetrators, wasted billions of dollars, and generally did damn-all to bring the guilty to justice. In fact, Obama had to catch or kill the perps when he got into office because BTD didn’t get around to it.

4/15: Obama immediately tells his peeps, “Go get those mother***ers”. The perps were caught or killed in less than a week.

It sure looks like this Prexy did a lot better job of keeping us safe than the previous Oval Office occupant. Advantage: Obama.

Really, could it be anyone else? Ever since Monday’s bombing, the Clueless News Network  has been full of fertilizer. Time after time, they have leapt to conclusions, jumped at shadows, and made mountains out of molehills. These activities might make a good workout regimen, but they make horrible news.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky swore off CNN after Candy and Poppy did their “Sympathy for the Rapist” bit. But alas, he was stuck in a room on Tuesday morning, and that room had CNN on, and he could not get at the remote. So he was obliged to watch those “journalists” alternating between wild speculation and self-aggrandizing for over an hour. And that’s pretty much how they spent the rest of the week: slandering innocents, demonizing “dark-skinned” people and Moslems, and half-heartedly walking back their many misstatements.

Even Congress, we would venture to say, hasn’t told as many whoppers this week as the Clueless News Network. And so they have truly earned their Crown O’ Polished Turds.
