On 6 September, actor/comedian Albert Brooks posted a Tweet, dripping with classic Brooks sarcasm, and it accidentally altered US Foreign Policy.
Before Brooks’ “Tweet Heard ‘Round The World” came screaming into Secretary of State John Kerry’s left earbud and embedded itself into his only frontal lobe, Brooks’ sarcasm roared by just inches above the greasy balding head of Our Boy Gus_802.
Yeah. Brooks had to ‘splain his Tweet to Gus. “Boom” indeed, and the rest is #Rumpswab history.

Killgore Trout mentions that the al-Qaeda allied al-Nusra Front was attacking a Christian town held by Assad’s froces. This set off an interesting back and forth which shows how divided LGF is on this subject.
The argument against Killgore’s point that the rebels are al-Qaeda allies, is that dead Muslims are worth more than Christian lives. Kudos to Killgore for bringing reality into the Syria debate at LGF.
Charles is trying to have it both ways on Obama’s call for intervention in Syria. Most Progressives oppose intervention in Syria as do most on the Right. Charles does not want to give his Leftist enemies another rock to throw at him. But this is tempered by his love and support of Obama. He decided to do a poll and see which way the wind was blowing.
Charles is in a tight spot here.
Fresh off playing online general in the Libyan War, the future psychiatric hospital patient or terrorist Pro Life Liberal plots another war. He is now calling for US intervention in Syria.
I’m sure ProLifeLiberal will be the first to volunteer for a war in Syria. There is the Free Syrian Army now, I’m sure through his Jihadi contacts he can get in touch and volunteer. Maybe he can strap a bomb around himself and impress the girl he’s in love with who is giving up the goods to another man.
I doubt he’ll do this. He’ll end up in a psycho ward. Then again LGF is an online psycho ward.
