Tweets That Moved A Nation

Send Twitter, iPods and YouTube, The Sh*t Has Hit The Fan

Developments are moving faster than bloviators. Mercifully. Even the usual Neocon self serving hypocrisy stumbles over itself in daily revisionism. (How does Dan Senor even show his face in public?)

We think Obama has it about right. The office of the presidency is largely ceremonial and not in the chain of command. There is little in his record to suggest Moussavi would be any less intractable re nukes, Israel or regional imperialism.

We know less about Iranian affairs than the Neocons. So if a reader has a different and more informed pov by all means please share.

And then there is this gem from Freedom Fighter Pete Hoekstra

Stupid is as stupid does

Who knew Pete Hoekstra himself would become a meme?

    “We know less about Iranian affairs than the Neocons”

    Do you mean, you know less about Iran than you know about the Neocons? Or is that your knowledge of Iran is less than that of your typical Neocon?

    If it’s the latter, I’d say that you’re speaking nonsense, because it simply is not possible to know **less** than a neocon. Leave aside their usual blithe ignorance of Farsi or Persian culture — those twits are too blinded by True Faith to have useful knowledge about anything.

    Can you imagine how much Ahmadinejag and his cynical clerical supporters would have loved to a loathsome Chaney or a fatuous Newt give a speech attacking him in Cairo – instead of Obama the celeb?

    These dummys at the Ethics and Public Policy center have no idea how people perceive them.

    GOP ignorance on this has become comical – Yeah – no doubt Moussavi wants those coveted endorsements from Kristol and McCain and Senor and Liz Chaney.

    He wants those endorsements about as much as Obama wanted Castro to endorse him before the Florida primary.

    It’s just comically stupid to see hated people pretend to care about people they want to bomb into rubble.

    Btw, knowledge of subject matter never bothered Percy
