Shorter Oliver's short bus*
Obama? Buying... advertising? On a widely-viewed national televison broadcast? That bastard!
* And I'm sure every other right-wing dipshit on the internet by lunchtime today. Seriously. Three posts, minimum, on Townhall.
Aw c'mon ... the Olympics are supposed to be non political. Just because a candidate has the dough, doesn't mean it's right to use these games for personal political gain. The credo of the Olympics is ... It's not whether you win or not, it's how you play the game. Once again, it appears that Obama will disregard and disrespect any and all traditions in order to win. Once again, Obama will do anything, or say anything to win. The end does not always justify the means. Extreme arrogance and ambition can be a very distasteful character flaw.
It's like there's literally a generator on a website or something where you can enter anything Obama has done in the last 24 hours and get a lame, canned concern troll about how it's "distasteful." I'm going to love the day after the election when people like this are arguing that Obama winning the election was totally bad form.
The Photoshop.... it burns!
That.... that is a truly horrible poster.

Of the women veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan who have walked into a VA facility, 15 percent have screened positive for military sexual trauma, The Associated Press has learned. That means they indicated that while on active duty they were sexually assaulted, raped, or were sexually harassed, receiving repeated unsolicited verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature...
...Since 2002, the foundation says it has received more than 1,000 reports of assault and rape in the U.S. Central Command areas of operation, which include Iraq and Afghanistan...
...The actual number is likely higher than what's reported. Among members of the military surveyed in 2006 who indicated they had experienced unwanted sexual contact, about 20 percent said they had reported it to an authority or organization...
But they had to wear burqas we're the best because we have shows with boobies in them yada yada yada.
Let's kill us some puppies
Well, that's not indicative of a future serial killer at all.

It's real. This exists. For the love of god, people, do you think I would make something like this up?
I've used this line many times before, but honestly, Hurl! is why the terrorists hate us. I mean, I hate us because of this show. Stupid as it is right on its face, you have to think about the overall concept here to really, truly hate the existence of America in its current state. This is a program where people in a country that- and let's put aside the rest of the world here- cannot feed a percentage of its own citizens- are directed to consume food. Not eat it, not enjoy it, but just consume it... and then, immediately afterwards, compete until they vomit it.
There is not a single part of this show that does not, quite literally, waste resources. Food is wasted. Manpower is wasted. Electricity to power TV to watch it is wasted. It is a show that glorifies in every single aspect the image of Americans having no respect for anything, including themselves. And if Bin Laden's next video is just cut with this, then I imagine we'd have a lot harder a time formulating a rebuttal.
