Obama, Day 101: Everything Goes to Sh*t

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

With all of the fanfare for President Obama’s popular first 100 days, he is that much more certain to have a bad day, and soon. Here is Obama’s worst day yet per Politico 44’s daily itinerary of “POTUS” (Secret Service-style code for President!): Read More »

Yelling “FIRE!” in an Empty Theater

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

While I would prefer to not dignify John Ziegler by writing any more about him, I would like to take the opportunity to respond to his grievances against me while addressing more pertinent issues.

I do not feel the need to rebut every sweeping accusation from him, because as I have already detailed, this individual projects partisan pressure into every context. My lengthy refutation of his film Media Malpractice: How Obama Got Elected and Palin was Targeted was not so “laughably biased” as he would prefer, but rather a thorough break down of the film as one long subjective rant with news clips plied around it. The only thing “documented” in this documentary was Sarah Palin squirming while Zeigler forces her to watch some of her damaging press clips. She even says to Ziegler, “You’re torturing me, man!”

My opinions never even got a chance to be affected by his film, because Ziegler offers no evidence other than his biased interpretation of news coverage. In fact, I have stretched to keep my mind open to many conservative viewpoints in spite of how Mr. Ziegler has argued them. Read More »

Does the First Amendment Protect the Right to Be a Dumbass?

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Upon seeing John Ziegler in handcuffs, I was struck by the sheer suaveness of a simpleton who discovered that getting in the face of security with a camera will lead them to apprehend you. It was similar to how he looked on a reality dating show explaining his ideal relationship to a clearly perturbed woman: that marriage should be renegotiated every five years like a business contract. How did this not go over well? Read More »

Look at this Motherf*%@n Puppy!

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

This flier was found today posted in the vicinity of the White House.

While the dissonant prose may suggest dictation from Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel, the use of pronouns indicate this may have been issued by the POTUS himself, to tell off that showboat dog Xerxes. Read More »

Why Obama Hates The New York Times

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

Yesterday, The New York Times sniffed, “Is President Obama trying to muzzle his press corps?”

The obvious answer about this transparency-promoting president who keeps his daily schedule on Politico is inarguably, Yes. At least, he probably doesn’t care enough about this New York Times reporter’s feelings to reassure her that, ‘No, it’s not you, Honey, I called on three journalists from the White House press pool, then the Prime Minister has to call on his peeps, then we got the whole G-20 goin’ on, you know how it is.’

In his press conferences, Obama has been leaving the press corps aghast by calling on journalists from smaller news outlets. Pressmen, not known for their benevolence, had likely been deriding these journalists until they started getting Obama’s attention, such as Spanish-speaking Univision, U.S. Army newspaper Stars & Stripes, and the tres chic Huffington Post.
