Intertube Memes

Posted: August 24, 2012 by veeshir in Obama's Fault, Op/Sped, PEBKAC

This story has two intertubes memes in one story!

First meme

  • President’s latest slip-up was calling Admiral William McRaven a general
  • Comes days after he and Ohio State University students spelled Ohio ‘O-I-H-O’
Why do we have to read about Obama’s stupidities in British papers? Our papers try to “debunk” the reporting on his error even as they are true.
Second intertubes meme

Barack Obama has always been known for his silken words, soaring rhetoric and ability to use language to his advantage.

Lately, however, the president seems to be losing command of the details….

No, it’s not just “lately”, it’s been a signature of his for as long as I’ve been paying attention to him. 57 states anyone? Marine corpse? C’mon, you can play along.

Some intertubes memes are cool, those two annoy me.

Hmmm, what’s a good intertube meme.

I know, puppy pics. Some puppy pics below the fold (sweater variety)

Hey, at least it’s not Madelaine Albright’s sweater puppies.

    He actually said “corpse man”, which may be even funnier.

    Considering all the times that Obama has tripped over his own tongue, I’m surprised that “57 states” is as popular as it is: it’s one of the few of his mess-ups that was almost certainly an intentional joke, which is pretty clear from his delivery if you watch the actual clip (I said it was an actual joke, I didn’t say it was funny). Yes, I know that the ‘imagine if George W. Bush had said it’ rule applies, but still…

    Sweater puppies that can lick back. Pure heaven. But no, the real sweater puppies, freshly nestled from their hiding place are better.

    The meme topics are great but are so absolutely depressing I find myself longing for that meteor-strike. Or being forced to snort a quart of Diet Coke ™ with a package of Mentos ™ shoved up my nostrils and sinuses.

    In other words, I am sorry but I cannot participate. Hell, I’m boycotting you anyway so it is a moot point.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up.

    The text in your content seem to be running off the
    screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon.
    Thanks
