The Savory Weed with Roots in Hell

Ladies and gentlemens, a meme so stupid even Big Hollywood has chosen to ignore it (well, I can’t vouch for comments…I only know what Google Reader tells me), but one rightwing blog that was assiduously stupid enough to care corrects the public record on the president’s now famed impromptu trip to a local burger joint:

NBC’s regular news reported Obama’s order as follows: “”I’m going to have a basic cheddar cheese burger, medium well, with mustard,” Obama said. “Do you have spicy mustard? I’ll take that.”

Actually, the quote was “you got a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that”

So, in honor of Sean Hannity, Mark Steyn, and Laura Ingraham, the Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, and Katherine Hepburn in The Philadelphia Story of sociopathic far-right lunacy (video embedded below for those who don’t care to link-trek over to see it at other sites), tonight’s mustardgate menu at Chez FtY….

One elitist and suspiciously low-cal turkey burger (tryptophan…gate way drug to Sleep-Eze) made from ground fowl purchased at Trader Joe’s, home of two buck Chuck and Vegi-Sodomy Steaks, with unpatriotic light muenster cheese on multigrain bread with either dijon or perhaps the “spicy” brown mustard (aka “deli mustard”) in celebration of my own ethnic heritage (and pointing out the subtly anti-semitic portions of the attack…Obama’s open to the Jew condiment and the righties don’t like it!). It will be on multigrain bread.

Coming soon…Dick Cheney requests the release of the full recipe for McDonald’s secret sauce.

    The Left is just keeping this ‘Mustard story’ alive, the Right had a chuckle and moved on. There are many much more important things to criticize this administration about. The Left doesn’t want people focusing on the big stuff, because that’s where it’s most dangerous to them. The Truth will bring them down, God willing.

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    deify your dear leaders

    they are supernatural
    with magical qualities

    absurd thought –
    God of the Universe says
    don’t protest tax increases

    or support states’ rights
    YOU RIGHT-WING EXTREMIST

  2. First of all Uspace, congratulations and thanks for stopping by…you are my first, you should pardon the expression, wingnut poster maybe ever. (I’ve had conservatives stop by, but they lacked that certain eau du crazy that your comment has.) Say hi to the Big Hollywood gang for me.

    Anyhow, I’m sure the right will be returning to the “big stuff” … like Obama’s Cyrnano de Bergerac-like teleprompter. Or, if you really want to get serious, you’ll then get back to proposing your solutions to the world’s problems…tax cuts for the wealthy and more torture and incarcerations of randomly selected individuals. (Which, because a Democrat is doing it, they’ll then later on argue is grounds for impeachment.) Today’s online and radio right is utterly bereft of new ideas, and old ones have utterly discredited, your leaders revealed as primarily fools and sociopaths. And you accuse someone of me like of having a blind religious-like faith in political types, while invoking some religious talk of your own? Kind of hard to figure where you’re going with all that, but if it works for you, cool. Nevertheless, that takes some chutzpah, or blindness, whichever it is.

    Dijongate is an example of cultural politics-at its worst. Conservatives get a lot of pleasure and have gotten a lot of mileage out of this stuff (Remember “Republican cloth coat,” or “Pork rinds and a beer”?)

    I guess they couldn’t call Bill Clinton a “bubba” because in the 1990s the Reps considered themselves the Party of Bubba, and would thus be attacking their own base

  4. If anything, Bill Clinton kind of claimed the “bubba” mantle for the same reasons.

    Still, Dijongate almost gets to “so bad it’s good” Ed Wood levels.
