Let’s take a closer look at that ass
While I was away, I kept track of the lunacy of US domestic politics, but only sporadically and distractedly, between bites of burrata and
sips swigs of chianti. I didn’t pay the teeniest tiniest bit of attention to the extra extra special lunacy of the wingnut blogosphere until I got back. And so, even though I alluded to La Althouse’s latest hermeneutic meltdown / exercise in public self-humiliation in the previous comment thread, I actually wasn’t fully aware of Obama’s latest affront to his predecessor’s attempt to restore dignity and honor to the office of the Presidency. Nor was I aware that this was a gaffe even more devastating than Dijongate.
Sigh. This whole thing is so tired. I personally was a week ahead of the game, setting the standard for the public ogling of derrières on July 2.
As JP Stormcrow observed about my vacation videos in yesterday’s thread:
One can’t help but note that the first video was of a car driving through terrain where there well might have been tunnels, and yet no tunnel was entered. The second video had multiple free-standing towers and the third ended with shots of erect stanchions. Need I say more about the thumb?
AND: Yes, I realize that I have been completely unhinged on this subject for years, and I stand by my analysis of the videos.
Fine work, JP! You win the Chávezian Airspace Distinguished Onion Ring for the Advanced Deconstruction of Visual Culture. A fine way to start Bastille Day! Just don’t eat the thing—it’s a symbolical prize, not a snack food. Have a carrot instead.
And just wait til I post the still photos tomorrow.
