Flugennock's Latest'n'Greatest: "Obama's Syrian 'Red Line'"

Our local anarchist cartoonist draws again. I've missed some recently so go to his website to catch up.

"Obama's Syrian 'Red  Line'"

Now, I didn't actually watch Obama's Syria speech last Tuesday -- the very sound of his soulless, pompous, officious delivery gives me a Hot Dog Burp Of Disgust -- but from all accounts, the whole thing basically boiled down to "Aww, FUUUUUUUUU--"

What really gives me a giggle, though, is all the talk from Obummer and his mob about a "red line". After all, how long has that whole brouhaha been going on over there -- two years or so? Then, after sitting around and pretty much ignoring it all that time, President Sparkle Pony suddenly gets a bug up his ass and decides we -- "we" being the US State and corporate elites -- need to "do something"? Christ, that's rich.

And whose idea was it to start slinging around the expression "red line", anyway? That's got to be one of the stupidest expressions to come from inside the Beltway since "reset button". You know the Washington insiders and punditocracy are really scraping the bottom of the barrel when they start picking up on a phrase coined by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu in that third-grade show'n'tell he put on at the UN last year.

For me, that's a sure sign that the elites have completely jumped the shark.
