Take these olympic games and shove them up your....

Trouble is brewing over United States ice hockey goalie Jonathan Quick and the “Support Our Troops” slogan on his helmet. Slogans of this sort are banned under Olympic rules and Quick will be told to remove it, the International Ice Hockey Federation has told Reuters.

IOC rules forbid political propoganda or advertisements being placed on equipment. “If the players don’t agree with the interpretation they can ask the USOC (United States Olympic Committee) to petition the IOC.”


Since when is "Support our troops" political propaganda?

It is way, way, way, way, past time that we told the IOC to kiss our asses and walk away from this nest of ungrateful despicable drones.

A Brazilian soldiers dead

The Dept of Defense briefed the President this morning.

They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq.

To every one's surprise, he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.

Finally, he composed himself and asked, 'Just how many is a Brazilian?'

Hat tip to Mike L!

Joe the Plumber is angry.

Well, Joe the Plumber feels that McCain used him after the press when postal over his question to The Chosen One that resulted in Obamie telling The Only Truth He Spoke in the campaign.

That he wanted to spread the wealth around.

And McCain did, to the extent that McCain's references to what Joe said fueled the flames of hatred against Joe by the Left and their handmaidens and water boys in the press.

Within hours the claims about Joe multiplied faster than a strep infection and proved just as hard to stamp out. Among the many was:

His name is not Joe. Wrong.

Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.


The Lefties had a grand time with Joe. In the article linked to we find this claim by Amblinder:

His voter registration application misspells his name, btw

Of course that wasn't truthful, but hey! Joe dared corner Obamie so he must be punished!

Let's look at some facts:

“We have his named spelled W-O, instead of W-U,” Linda Howe, executive director of the Lucas County Board of Elections, said in a telephone interview. “Handwriting is sometimes hard to read. He has never corrected it in his registration card.”

Uh Linda.... Why would he correct anything? You can't read his handwriting. Who knew? Have you called him up? Left a message? Sent a letter?

"Dear Joe..... Oh How I hate to write.... But I can't read your signature... Will you help me get it right?"


And in the madness and desire to attack Joe that followed his question to The Chosen one, some state employees over reached and and wound up paying the price after multiple complaints and investigations.

Wurzelbacher said the (state) employees accessed his personal information to retaliate against him for speaking out against Obama.

Jones-Kelley and Williams have resigned, while Thompson lost his job after Inspector General Tom Charles found that confidential personal information was improperly accessed.

Attorney General Richard Cordray, a Democrat, said he is obligated to defend the employees because the lawsuit claims the illegal actions were done in the course of their work for the state.


And the most amazing thing of all, while the press and Leftie bloggers tore at Joe in all their fury, not one of them asked Obamie for his birth certificate....who paid for his trip to Muslim countries after his first year in school... how he jumped from a small state school in California to an elite school... why he associated with the self-identified terrorist William Ayers...

They wound up knowing more about a plumber from Ohio than they did about a candidate for President of the United States.

Think about it.

And the press claims to not understand why they have lost respect and why newspapers are failing.
