Happy Mondays, kids! So, the Cowboys got robbed this weekend, despite one hell of an effort combined with one bullshit NFL rule that got called. I’ve been enjoying a rather pragmatic approach to this argument, if only because facts and lucidity often make Cowboys fans lose their shit more easily. For instance, positing this question: “Isn’t this Dez Bryant’s profession? And if so, then shouldn’t he fucking KNOW about this rule? Because he sure as shit looked more surprised than ANYONE.” Ahh, that got some teeth a’grinding.
Anyway, I can only assume this is what kept President Obama from attending the Charlie Hebdo rally in Gay Paree. Which is perfectly acceptable, of course.
Oh, wait. I forgot. Fuck Obama and everything he does, right?
Nah, he gets a pass on this one, despite the world media theater positively fellating themselves over his absence. And you want to know why? Because there were many world leaders in attendance at this rally for press freedoms that have violated that very thing many times over (a detailed series of tweets showing who was in attendance and their respective violation can be read here.) In the face of all this glaring hypocrisy, I personally find it nice that the Obama administration did not choose to indulge in this farce. After all, this current band of despots idiolected by the nation’s populasses is the most aggressive in our history when it comes to prosecuting journalists for disclosing unauthorized leaks. Why the fuck would they need to defend something they violate regularly?
Love them or hate them, at least they’re not being arrogant, prickish hypocrites about this one.
