Birther Madness

6 01 2011

Gonna be a long two fucking years.

An apparent member of the birther movement seated in the gallery of the House of Representatives on Thursday interrupted a reading of the Constitution. The woman yelled out “Except Obama, except Obama, help us Jesus!” as Rep. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) read the “natural born citizen” clause of the Constitution.

Who Can Tell The Difference

21 10 2010

We really are delving into the nether regions of Teh Stupid here.

“On an upcoming trip to India, President Obama will skip visiting one of the country’s most sacred shrines out of fear that wearing the requisite headgear might make him appear Muslim,” Jake Tapper reports.

So the Obama administration has to potentially piss off an ally because his political team knows the mouth breathing fury they will have to face back home if the Kenyan Socialist shows up in the Shrine in the required headgear, making him look oh-so Muslim. This is all just to fucking stupid to deal with any more. Ok, we are back to all recipes all the time.

South Indian shrimp curry
Some of the greatest seafood curries originate along the south coast of India where shrimp, fish and other seafood are plentiful. In this shrimp curry, a fragrant spice mix imparts a deep color and encapsulates the rich flavors of South Indian cuisine.

2 tablespoons canola or peanut oil
1 onion—chopped
2 cloves garlic—finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely grated ginger
2 teaspoons cumin
1½ teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon chili powder
1 cup canned tomatoes—chopped
1 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup basmati rice
16 large uncooked shrimp (prawns)—peeled
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (coriander)
2 tablespoons lemon juice


HEAT the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and cook the onion for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. ADD the garlic, ginger, cumin, turmeric, paprika and chili powder and cook, stirring, for a minute. ADD the tomatoes, coconut milk and salt and bring to the boil. REDUCE the heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 8 minutes. WHILE the curry simmers, cook the rice (see Cooking rice). ADD the shrimp and cilantro to the curry, cover with a lid, and simmer for another 4 minutes, then stir in the lemon juice. SERVE on a bed of rice.

Wake to Stupid

13 09 2010

This nonsense has been going on all week-end, and Serwer is just one to raise his voice against it (Drum has been good, too) but…lordy, this is fucking stupid.  And transparent.  The ongoing attempts to “otherize” President Obama have always had at least a toehold in the mainstream, intellectual right, but now we’ve broken out the silver egg cups and tucked our expensive silk napkins in our collars for a real feast of crashing polysyllabic taunts.  The president’s not even allowed the dignity of being a parlor pink.  Instead, he’s an African tribal communist.  Shaka Stalin!

And how perfect that it all starts with Dinesh “Party of Death” D’Souza, a writer who must be absolutely flabbergasted that his philosophical support for at least some of al Qaeda’s cultural grievances against the West has failed to get him tossed out of polite society (“What’s a guy got to do to get fired around here?”).  Better yet that Gingrich has decided to pick up the football and run with it, producing howlers such as, “[Obama] was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve . . . He was authentically dishonest.”  This from Mr. “It doesn’t matter what I live“!  Stunning indeed.  But not in the way anyone appears to mean.

Yay!

However, I question the authenticity of Mr. Adams’ story and contend that he is privy to this shocking information because he is, in fact, from The Future.

Or at least is impressively bald.

You decide.
