Riffing on Fearless Leader

"I only want what's fair"
What would I do... what would I do, if it wasn't for my conservative buddies in the blogosphere. Here's a great riff from Dan Friedman over at Andrew Brietbart's Big Peace:
"Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845. “Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries – and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,” Netanyahu said. “The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that’s taken place in occupied Mexico since then is illegal. When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico,” the Prime Minister said.

Asked if his hard-line stance could hurt the U.S.-Israel relationship, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s commitment to America’s security and the unshakeable friendship shared by the two countries, then added, “But who was it who said, part of friendship is being able to tell your friend the truth. The ball is now in Obama’s court."
Boris Badenov, Natasha Fatale, and of course, Fearless Leader

I just stole the whole thing, with a hat tip to Bob Belevedere for the link and, as usual, the eye catching photo. Great stuff!


  1. Check out the pin.

    That Bob Belevedere!

  2. Thank God for funny. And I do like the picture (yes, Belvedere is a leader in eye-catching photos) -- although it looks as though he may be dying his beard...

    BTW -- Is Blogger acting up today?

  3. "BTW -- Is Blogger acting up today?"

    Today and everyday. Blogger's gonna wear me out!

  4. You're coming through, loud and cl....r. Wait, what w..s that?

  5. If Natasha Fatale is Hillary Rodham Clinton, who the heck is Boris Badenov?

  6. Doesn't the expression on the face of Fearless Leader remind you of our president, listening attentively and with some surprise, as Benjamin Netanayu repeated before the press what he had just got through telling him in person?

    The face of friend and ally.

  7. Oh -- I think Boris and Natasha are Reid and Pelosi!

  8. Reid and Pelosi is good, certainly Natasha for Pelosi, but Reid is a lot more squirrelly than Boris, whose contemptible badness is so front and center.

    Hey, how about Ed Schultz?

    "I put Ingraham in cannon. Pull trigger - and viola, no more Ingraham."

  9. That's the most flattering description of Reid and Pelosi I ever heard, Cathy. You are right, but it's much too kind.

    Blogger wasn't letting this go through--they were having problems with Gmail accts. Ironic.
    This was written right after Cathy's comment appeared.
