Shake, Rattled, and LOL

Proving that no gesture ( a wink, a nod, a jerk-off motion indicated by the vigorous pumping of a closed fist up and down) is too small to not possibly result in some deep geopolitical repercussions that will plunge earth into a nuclear holocaust destroying all signs of life on the planet and leaving it as scorched and uninhabitable as Michele Bachmann’s vestigial brain, Marxist Communist Socialist President Barack  Hussein Obama  made the horrific mistake of briefly shaking the hand of Marxist Communist Socialist Cuban President Raul “Fidel’s Bro” Castro at a ceremony for recently deceased Marxist Communist Socialist President Nelson Mandela on Tuesday and, needless to say, shit was lost by people for whom shit losing is a daily event as long as THAT BLACK MAN continues to draw breath on white God’s green earth.

Let us start with The Man Who Palled Around With Errorists, Sen. John McCain, who was the first out of the chute to play Nazi Jenga!:

When asked if Obama should have extended his hand, McCain was quick to respond.

“Of course not,” the senator said. “Why should you shake hands with somebody who’s keeping Americans in prison? I mean, what’s the point?”

Then, after a slight pause, McCain went there.

“Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler,” he added.

Citizens of the Sudetenland might want to brush up on their Cuban Spanish.  You know, just in case…

Next up is former Republican child star Marco Rubio who set out to remind us that he is Cuban-American (GOP: good!) and not Mexican-American (GOP: …. it’s complicated) as well as reminding us that a very small minority of Cuban-Americans exercise a grotesquely disproportionate amount of influence when it comes to Cuba/America relations (seriously you guys, it’s been 54 years. Just let it go already ….):

President Obama could have at least squeezed in a brief lecture on human rights when he extended his hand to the leader of a longtime adversary, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said Tuesday.

Rubio, a son of Cuban immigrants, was complaining about Obama’s handshake with Cuban President Raul Castro, a brief interaction that took place at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in South Africa.

“If he was going to shake his hand, he should have asked him about those basic freedoms Mandela was associated with that are denied in Cuba,” Rubio told ABC News.

Which would have been as appropriate as sidling up to Nicolas Sarkozy during the eulogy and whispering, “Dude. Your wife is totally hot. Bangin’ bod. High five!”.

So much for the professional class. But what of the semi-pros?

AT NRO, former Iran/Contra All-Star Otto Reich is NOT A FAN:

American presidents should avoid shaking the hand of dictators, especially those that have American blood on theirs. One example of many: Raul Castro was Minister of Defense in 1996 when Cuban Air Force MiGs, cold-bloodedly and over international airspace, destroyed two civilian U.S. airplanes with four American rescue workers on board. President Clinton rightly condemned the attack as cowardly, while Raul Castro decorated his pilots for bravery. That incident alone illustrates the difference between the two systems that are embodied in the two leaders.

Some things, unlike the others, are unforgivable.

Moving down the food chain, Allahpundit at Hot Air:

In Cuba, today’s handshake between leader Raúl Castro and US President Barack Obama was a non-event.

That’s because official state TV and Granma, the Cuban Communist Party’s official newspaper, omitted the salutation from its coverage of former South African President Nelson Mandela’s memorial ceremony.

While the handshake quickly went viral, lighting up media sites worldwide, Cuban blogger Yaoni Sánchez was quick to point out on Twitter that government-controlled TV stations failed to even show the encounter, much less hypothesize what it symbolizes for Cuba-US relations.

If Cuba’s press ignored the handshake, should we also be wary of staring too hard at the tea leaves?

Ahem: Allahpundit = RINO.

C’mon you guys,  give the rubes some Red Meat:

White House Furiously Tries To Downplay Obama’s Handshake With Raul Castro…

Now we’re getting somewhere. Obviously the White House wants to downplay the handshake because Castro probably slipped Obama a dime bag in return for the promise of a blow job later OR …. the White House wants you to think it is a big deal because it distracts from Obamacare/Benghazi/IRS/Fast & Furious (by which I mean the drone killing of Paul Walker)/Churchillbustgate/and also 9/11 which totally happened on Obama’s watch. It is also entirely possible that both scenarios are equally true.

And since we’re talkin’ crazy talk and the bottom of the barrel looms, let’s check in with the tweakers at Michelle Malkin’s recently sold  Twitchy Misinformation Meth Lab:

Well, that almost says it all, doesn’t it? As Twitchy reported, in between displaying a staggering lack of self-awareness, taking funeral selfies and ticking off his wife, President Obama shook Raúl Castro’s hand at the memorial for Nelson Mandela.

Yes indeed, that says it all.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’ll kill myself.

Oh dear. It seems that upright citizens cultural scold Lee Siegel, who once saved America from not only the tyranny of  blogofascism but also single-handedly stemmed the blight of ballcaps, is – once again – being hoi polloi annoyed by the commoners whose base instincts have become a bit too base for Lee’s tastes. Taking to the astringently asexual pages of the Wall Street Journal, Siegel clutches his pearl necklace (not that kind of pearl…

It is Friday, isn’t it? Because Stephen Colbert was making fun of Phish and Trey Anastasio last night I thought I would put this up: If you’re into this kind of thing. Also, too, I’m looking forward to reading this on my travels during the Christmas to New Year’s break…


The GOP’s ‘Hey Ladies, Me Love You Long Time!’ outreach is probably gonna fail big time

By TBogg

The GOP is taking great pains to prove to the wimmins of America that, despite their fumbling attempts  to transvaginal wand-love the gals for their own good, they are super cool with other things that the ladies want as long as it doesn’t have anything to do with equal pay…

A long time ago San Diegans were told that they could have only two of three things in life: exceptional weather, a world class zoo with pandas, or a world class newspaper. If you haven’t figured out which ones we selected, here is a hint: on Sunday I will be…

Thanksgiving was, what, like four days ago? But that doesn’t mean that dimwitted Fox pecksniff Todd Starnes isn’t  still all Concerned-Mom-Is-Concerned because the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was defiled by a bunch of tapdancing transvestites and it’s getting so that kids can’t even watch a damn parade these days without…

Dinesh D’Souza who was something vaguely interesting or of marginal importance at one time or another and then managed to parlay that into a gig at fakey Christian college housed in an abandoned Manhattan skyscraper until he got shit-canned for boning the help , was twitter-twatting today and, oh you…
