Quote du jour

...how heartening, as one watches the viral video of Obama droning on while a mere foot and a half away Mr. Jantjie rubs his belly and tickles his ear, to think that the White House’s usual money-no-object security operation went to the trouble of flying in Air Force One, plus the “decoy” Air Force One, plus support aircraft, plus the 120-vehicle motorcade or whatever it’s up to by now, plus a bazillion Secret Service agents with reflector shades and telephone wire dangling from their ears, to shepherd POTUS into the secured venue and then stand him onstage next to an $85-a-day violent schizophrenic.

  1. After 2000+ quotes you still haven't fathomed the point? No surprise there! The quote "du jour" is primarily about language, so being semi-literate yourself, Ema, I can see where you might struggle with the concept.

    (Editor's note: "du jour" is French for "of the day". You may now stop ordering the "soup du jour of the day", Ema.)

    I post quotes from various points of view: Mark Steyn, Barry and Michelle Obama, even fictional characters, if what is being said is noteworthy, or well said, or that has an unusual turn of phrase. Special consideration is given to wit (and not just the half that you bring to the table, Ema.) and that which is pithy (and I'm not referring to that which you do in your panths.)

    Mr. Steyn has a rare wit. His point here, I believe, is the irony of spending millions to protect the president's life and person, as well they should, and yet allowing this nutjob, who apparently wasn't even vetted as to whether or not he even knew sign language, within arm's length of POTUS.

    I know that most liberals are irony impaired, so I will attribute your confusion to that, and not assume that your apparent apathy towards the safety of our president stems from the fact that he is black...

    BTW, your childish insults, lack of civility and substance are all duly noted. Please note that Proof did not call Ema Nympton a rude, immature, half-witted troll
