Also, nice Nobel doubletake from Frank Whitaker diary on Daily Kos:

I don't have exactly the same sense of irony as Kevin Zeese, but IMHO he got it exactly right in his recent article for the progressive website Truthdig.

The irony of the Obama presidency may hinge on whether he attacks Syria. He began his presidency prematurely winning the Nobel Peace Prize and could end it being impeached for starting an illegal war without congressional or UN approval – violating both domestic and international law.

But then the irony of the situation gets a lot more obvious.

If there is an impeachment proceeding his own words will be quoted. When he was running for president, Obama told the Boston Globe: "The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”

Obama impeaches himself.

Looking at the ref. from the Michael Moore twitter message, I'm sitting here wondering what in the world the Saudis need 1,300 cluster bombs for. Are they expecting the Soviet Union to invade?

Those are some great catches,BUT I just want to say FUCK Michael Moore(the big,fat hypocrite) and every other Obama supporting piece of shit. Anyone who voted for Obama's second term is no better than the ones who voted for G.W. Bush the second time.
