Andy Borowitz

I am back from 30 days of wandering around Europe.   I have been keeping up somewhat by limited views on the world with my iPad.   World has gone to a bit of a kerfuffle, I would say.   Anyway, this is one way to begin the re-startup process of getting down to the essence of staying informed:


Growing Pressure on Obama to Do Something Stupid


WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Arguing that his motto "Don't do stupid stuff" is not a coherent foreign policy, critics of President Obama are pressuring him to do something stupid without further delay.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) led the attack on Thursday, blasting Obama for failing to craft a stupid response to crises in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine.

"Instead of reacting to these events with the haste and recklessness they deserve, the President has chosen to waste valuable time thinking," McCain said. "This goes against the most fundamental principles of American foreign policy."

Graham also expressed frustration with the President, telling reporters, "The American people are waiting for President Obama to do something stupid, but their patience is wearing thin."

In his most withering criticism, McCain called Obama's "stubborn refusal to do stupid stuff" a failure of leadership. "If I were President, you can bet your bottom dollar I would have done plenty of stupid stuff by now," he said.
