Great Moments in Journalism

Funniest. Sentence. Ever.

COPENHAGEN — A visibly angry Barack Obama threw down the gauntlet at China and other developing nations Friday, declaring that the time has come "not to talk but to act"...

As one of my friends is wont to say, "B**ch, please."

Obie went to HopenChangen (or Hokumhagen, as the hard-science sites have been calling it) after declaring he would be bearing a pledge that the US would "reduce its carbon emissions to that of 1910."

In 1910, the population of the US was 85 million.

In order to reduce the *per capita* emissions to the level of that of 1910, US emissions will have to be reduced to what they were before there was even a US, and Obama doesn't even realize that. But China and India do, and they *know* he's just BSing -- again.

It's theater of the absurd, and the Clown-in-Chief keeps pushing himself to the center of the stage...

And despite the promise of 100 billion dollars, in ACME Carbon Credits®* I suppose, the vultures in Armani circling the carrion of decaying economies at Hoaxenhagen --my favorite-- were still not satisfied. Cousin Hugo smells sulfur even now. And Fidel, even Fidel, recognized the theater, for what it was. Sex and drugs and rock-n-roll. A money and power grab too.

* If not carbon credits, I wonder when the U.S. Congress authorized the SoS for that draft on the Treasury?*

Sounds kind of odd, coming from him...
