As the hours tick away from the kill operation of great success, it seems as if every second brings with it new Obama boobery. Even on Obama Hopium dens the complaints are heard that ‘they’re screwing up the messaging, the p.r.’. Even Big Media is noticing the boobery that damages the well executed military mission carried out by the military:
“WASHINGTON – Killing Osama bin Laden was a big victory for the U.S., but how exactly the raid went down is another story — and another, and another.
Over two days, the White House has offered contradictory versions of events, including misidentifying which of bin Laden’s sons was killed and wrongly saying bin Laden’s wife died in gunfire, as it tries to sort through what the president’s press secretary called the “fog of combat” and produce an accurate account. [snip]
The circumstances for the Navy SEALs involved hardly lent themselves to careful note-taking. One of their helicopters stalled even before they rushed bin Laden’s compound, entering different rooms from different angles, not knowing who they’d find and then, according to the White House, engaging in a firefight. Some of what happened during those 40 minutes in Abbottabad, Pakistan, may never be known.
Nevertheless, the contradictory statements seem certain to raise suspicions about the White House’s version of events, given that no independent account from another source is likely to emerge. The only non-U.S. witnesses to survive the raid are in Pakistani custody.”
From the first we stated that “early reports, as is typical with preliminary reports from war zones, were not completely accurate.” We, along with just about everyone else understands that elementary concept. We were forgiving and understanding about the stumbles. A question we cannot answer, the concept we cannot circumnavigate, is how White House spokesman Jay Carney, just like Barack Obama, can be so pompous and sniveling – so self-assured and ostentatiously incompetent – all at the same time?
As soon as the military mission was over, as soon as Barack and his clowns got involved, the boobery began:You knew Barack would screw up his own p.r. campaign, didn't you?
Two things. First: Beef lo mein. An e-mail asked if I cooked?
I could cook four things plus Ramen noodles. That's all I learned in my college days. But like a lot of people, I read Trina's website hoping for some clues and I now can probably fix about 25 dishes. That's not a huge number for the time I've been reading but I'm just not a really good cook. But Trina makes it simple and I appreciate that. But a lot of times, I'm just heating stuff up. The beef lo mein came in a package (frozen) and you just add it to a hot skillet, cover, cook for six minutes, reduce heat to medium and cook for four more. So even I couldn't screw that up.
Second: Kalinda's not gay?
What the heck?
With both of my shows off, I decided to catch up on CBS' "The Good Wife" which airs Tuesday nights. Martha Plimpton guests stars on the latest episode (the one that aired last night -- you can stream it online at the link).
So Alicia's breaking up with her husband (again) and why?
She knew about his affair with the hooker.
But it turns out he slept with a friend of hers.
He points out that they weren't friends (Alicia and the woman) when he slept with her.
That doesn't make a difference to her.
And, by the way, the woman?
Kalinda slept with Alicia's husband.
I could be wrong -- I only watched the first season back when it was airing -- but I believe at one point early on (maybe the episode when the kid from Alicia's old neighborhood needed an attorney and picked her?) where Kalinda says something about Peter and Alicia asks her flat out if she slept with her husband and Kalinda says no. Oh, I know. It's when Kalinda talks about having done some work for Peter.
But Kalinda said no. So she lied.
And then we saw her with the woman and Alicia even asked her if she was a lesbian.
Let's go back to my post of May 19th last year:
The Good Wife?
It just tried to include way too much.
Cary was hissing at Alicia and how it was unfair that she was picked and not him. (They were both interns atthe law firm. The trial period ended and they picked Alicia asthe one to keep and Cary as the one to let go.) Then he went to work for the people setting out to destroy Alicia's husband.
That alone was worthy of an episode.
Instead, that was a tiny subplot.
There was a murder case. Before we get there.
Alicia and Kalinda went out drinking to celebrate her success (getting the job). And during that, I still don't get this, Alicia asks Kalinda if she's a lesbian?
I never thought Kalinda was one -- in part because she's always kissing guys. But I just didn't know what the sene was about. If Kalina's going to be a lesbian, that's great. It will add levels to the show. But I just didn't understand why it was being brought up now. Especially when it didn't seem organic.
And last night's episode? They offered Carey his job back. He'd be a second-year and he whined would Alicia still be third-year? Yes. So it appears he turned it down. He's as whiney as he was last year.
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
