Stuck On Stupid: Tuesday Edition

I hate to do this, but some things must be said, so here goes:

—– First up: Jake Tapper.  Tapper’s done some excellent work over the last few months helping expose Barry Oh! as a smooth-talking double-speaker, but he veered way off course with a blog post he wrote today titled “Count the Young White Women in McCain’s Anti-Obama Video.”  There’s so much wrong with this what he wrote that I don’t know where to start.  MM has it covered, though, and makes mincemeat out of both Tapper and the implications he clearly made here. 

—– An idiotic Xenia, Ohio Burger King employee who took a bath in one of the restaurants sinks has been fired after video of the incident was posted on  In the vid, he called himself “Mr. Unstable” – now they just call him “Mr. Unemployed.” All those involved in the bubble bath video drama were also fired. 

—– Focus On The Family has pulled an embarassing video from its website which featured director of digital media director Stuart Shepard jokingly asking people to pray for “rain of biblical proportions” during Obama’s DNC nomination acceptance speech.  As expected, Obama apologist Andrew Sullivan, who is always looking for creative ways to insert his term “Christianist” into the debate, is not pleased.

—– Let’s play “Count McCain’s Houses.”   Yippee!   While we’re at it, anyone got any “Blue’s Clues” DVDs we can all watch? 8-|

—– And speaking of juvenile behavior, what clueless wonder came up with the idea for the Spanish Olympic men’s basketball team to pose for a photo which shows them deliberately slanting their eyes?

—– American Airlines is charging US troops on their way to the battle zone in Iraq to pay extra fees for all their baggage.  A VFW group is trying to get them to waive the charge, rather than the troops having to try and get reimbursed for the charge later when they’ve got more, shall we say pressing, matters to attend to.    If you’d like to help the VFW get these extra fees waived for our brave men and women in uniform altogether, here’s the contact info for American Airlines. 

—– The creator of the now-infamous unofficial Obama “O” hand signal speaks.  His plan is to make the symbol the “peace sign of our generation.”  No doubt our enemies would approve.
