That way you get to be dismissive of all SORTS of normally worthy folks who might otherwise be regarded in a different light.
“…You know what that is? That is not a scandal. Because we have this notable and important thing in this country in which the guys in uniforms, no matter how many medals and stars and fancy hats and all those things that they have, they do not get to decide whether or how the United States conducts a war…”
Rachel Maddow is one such “superior person” apparently.
Those poor souls involved in the incident were unavailable for comment
(Reuters) – Eight bodies, including those of three journalists, were found after an attack on a team trying to educate locals on the risks of the Ebola virus in a remote area of southeastern Guinea, a government spokesman said on Thursday.
“The eight bodies were found in the village latrine. Three of them had their throats slit,” Damantang Albert Camara told Reuters by telephone in Conakry.
…Fofana said the team that included local administrators, two medical officers, a preacher and three accompanying journalists, was attacked by a hostile stone-throwing crowd from the village when they tried to inform people about Ebola.
He said it was regrettable that the incident occurred as the international community was mobilizing to help countries struggling to contain the disease.
I just can’t wait for 3,000 of our men and women to get there. What could possibly go wrong?
On so many levels

Reality rains on President Obama’s foreign policy parade
…The relatively stable Iraq that Obama exited in haste during his re-election cycle is now being overrun by a well-funded and possibly self-sustaining terrorist army – arguably more powerful than anything America faced in al Qaeda. ISIS has amassed an increasingly advanced arsenal and is attracting thousands of new recruits through its successes, its pretensions to statehood, and even its widely broadcast atrocities. Osama bin Laden is dead, and ISIS is fulfilling his vision.
…dovetailed nicely with something I’d seen this morning that Megyn Kelly had posted.
Oh, GOSH. If ONLY someone had thought to tell Obama…
I’m mean, it’s not like the NATO meeting (or for that matter the entire alliance) means anything to him anyway
President Obama was nowhere to be found during the beginning of a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine commission in Wales on Thursday.
Obama was “noticeably absent” from the start of the meeting, according to a White House pool report, although U.S. Ambassador to NATO Douglas Lute was in attendance.
…and then he kept talking.
…Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.”
Like, not running out of toilet paper or accounting for ELEVEN missing Libyan jetliners or IRS hard drives.
As long as we’re cool and don’t lose our heads, we can unicorns and rainbows them into submission…or vapor.

WHILE they were SWEATING losing their ‘stipend’ due to sequestration, this year’s 2014 pay-out has survived to the tune of costing you $670+K, ON TOP of the $2,202,913 in funding they’ve received since it got cranking in 2011 (2011-$778,662/2012-$741,378/2013-$682,873).
Think back to some of the illustrious moments in this administration’s reign so far. They LOCKED WWII Vets OUT of their Memorial, wouldn’t allow Boy Scouts and OLD LADIES through the White House, THREATENED military retiree pay, BARRICADED the National Parks, wanted WOUNDED VETS to get their OWN insurance, gave EVERYBODY a WHOPPIN’ heart attack of EPIC PROPORTIONS…but kept the bucks flowing to the “how on EARTH did these wymmins get so ROTUND?” research committee.
Yeah. THE ‘no stra-tee-gery’ guys.
…and, if you need a hostage rescued, DON’T call Obama.
Why, an Ebola that has mutated, obviously
The Ebola virus sweeping through West Africa has mutated repeatedly during the current outbreak, a fact that could hinder diagnosis and treatment of the devastating disease, according to scientists who have genetically sequenced the virus in scores of victims.
The findings, published Thursday in the journal Science, also offer new insights into the origins of the largest and most deadly Ebola outbreak in history, which has killed more than 1,500 people in four countries and shows few signs of slowing. It also provided another reminder of the deep toll the outbreak has taken on health workers and others in the affected areas, as five of the paper’s more than 50 co-authors died from Ebola before publication.
Just not a whole lot of good news for those poor folks.

Siri, I need to dispose of a body
A college student accused of killing his roommate asked Siri for advice on hiding a body the day the man went missing, according to U.S. police.
Pedro Bravo, 20, stands accused of kidnapping and strangling his friend Christian Aguilar, 18, in September 2012 when they shared a room at the University of Florida.
The murder trial at the Alachua County Criminal Justice Centre, Florida, yesterday heard how the men had argued over Aguilar dating Bravo’s ex-girlfriend, Erika Friman.
Detective Matt Goeckel from Gainesville Police Department said on 20 September 2012, Bravo told Apple’s digital assistant Siri: ‘I need to hide my roommate’.
In response to this, Siri said: ‘What kind of place are you looking for? Swamps. Reservoirs. Metal foundries. Dumps.’
I knew there was one I’d forgotten.
If it’s just white-bread “Christian”, you’re Shiite out of luck.
Kirsten Powers: Obama’s inattention to Iraqi Christians
White House not addressing their persecution equally.
…Finally, later that night — and two full months after the crisis began — President Obama announced airstrikes in Iraq and for the first time acknowledged that Christians are being driven from the homeland of their faith. But the Christians garnered a passing mention, while the religious minority of Yazidis seems to be what moved the president to act.
An Iraqi Christian leader lamented to me that his people would have to convert to get the administration’s attention.
The Yazidis deserve protection and humanitarian aid, but so do the Christians who number in the hundreds of thousands in Iraq. While the Yazidis received air drops of food and water, nothing has been dropped to the Christians who are homeless and in dire need of food and water. Each day that passes is a matter of life and death.
I watched his initial announcement about the airstrikes and supply drops and damn near fell out my chair when “Christian” passed his lips for the VERY FIRST TIME EVER. It WAS only ONCE in the speech and I haven’t heard it since.
To her credit, Kirsten Powers angrily noted the same the next day on Fox’s Outnumbered:
Luckily it was found
For all his sparkling play of late, Sergio Garcia has shown some imperfections — like his wayward drive on the par-4 third hole during Sunday’s final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, which strayed into the gallery and knocked the diamond out of a woman’s ring.
Now I have never been a Sergio fan, as he is the most European-Soccer-Player-like of golfers: always whinig and coming up with excuses for his mistakes. But here you can see he acts in a most gentlemanly fashion, asking the marshalls to get the lady’s contact information with every intention of replacing the diamond were it not found.
Well played, sir.
