Every @robdelaney mention of @BarackObama so far in 2011.

Individually delightful, collectively genius.

This is terrible. Next you’ll be saying he never grew a mullet.

Nice attempt at (racist) humor there.

Call me crazy but I would hope for the Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States to know how to handle a gun. I honestly don’t know how you make it to 47 without ever handling a gun. Especially someone who had aspirations of leading the most powerful Armed Forces of the world.

Randy, you would be shocked to learn that not everyone has lived the same life you have and many people have no desire to ever hold a gun in their hands or fire one.

Correct me if i’m wrong but the Constitution does not require our Commander-in-Cheif the ability or desire to fire one in order to hold the highest office. After the last eight years, I actually prefer it.

I think if people want a gun to defend themselves they should have the right to do so, and I think most gun laws are ridiculous because criminals will get their hands on them regardless.

However I do not like guns, and see them as a necessary evil. I know how to fire a gun and can use one if necessary, but I sure as hell don’t want to.

The name of the website cracks me up too. “Regular folks.” The right does not have a monopoly on ‘regular folks’ and I think the past election proves that.

Lets not forget Joe Biden will pop a cap in anyone who tries to take away his guns. Joe Biden is not one to be flexed with.

Socialism, control of the media, and gun control seem to be the biggest, most irrational fears of the right. I’m willing to bet none of those fears come true over the next four years. You have bigger more important issues to worry about, along with the rest of us, you should be focusing your passion on those.

Amnesty: Canada ‘required’ to arrest George W. BushAmnesty International called on Canadian authorities Wednesday to arrest and prosecute George W.

Amnesty: Canada ‘required’ to arrest George W. Bush
Amnesty International called on Canadian authorities Wednesday to arrest and prosecute George W. Bush, saying the former U.S. president authorized “torture” when he directed the U.S.-led war on terror.

Bush is expected to attend an economic summit in Surrey in Canada’s westernmost British Columbia province on October 20.

The London-based group charged that Bush has legal responsibility for a series of human rights violations in a memorandum submitted last month to Canada’s attorney general but only now released to the media.

“Canada is required by its international obligations to arrest and prosecute former president Bush given his responsibility for crimes under international law including torture,” Amnesty’s Susan Lee said in a statement.

“As the U.S. authorities have, so far, failed to bring former president Bush to justice, the international community must step in.

Tony Bennett claims George Bush told him Iraq War was “a mistake.”

“To start a war in Iraq was a tremendous, tremendous mistake internationally,” the singer continued. When Stern suggested it was “terrorists” who “started it”, Bennett balked. “I don’t know about that,” he replied. “Who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don’t make a right … They flew the plane in, but we caused it … We were bombing them and they told us to stop.”
Bennett recalled talking to then-president George W Bush at a gala in December 2005. “He told me personally that night … ‘I think I made a mistake,’” Bennett said. On Tuesday a representative for Bush denied the story, calling it “flatly wrong.”

Earlier this evening, President Obama called to inform me that American forces killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of the al Qaeda network that attacked America on September 11, 2001. I congratulated him and the men and women of our military and intelligence communities who devoted their lives…

So far posting on Tumblr seems easy.

The President pardoned two turkeys this morning, but the real winner was Sasha Obama. Not only is her blazer fun and bold for fall, but that side-eye she’s shooting her father is downright epic.

She knows, as do I, that this whole turkey-pardoning bit is stale, and also that, President or not, her dad is embarrassing. Join the club, Sasha. Join the club.

Halló, this is Iceland. 
I have noticed that in my Reykjavík there are groups of very helpful humans dressed in colorful clothes who go around and make things better for the other people who live there.
They empty garbage cans, and change lightbulbs in traffic lights, and fix holes in streets, and do many other things that many people often do not notice.
Here they are, in this “instant-gram”, clearing the snow from their lake so the other humans can skate on it. (Do you think anyone is skating on it now?)
Bless bless, - Iceland
P.S. The picture in the instant-gram was made by a friendly man who also likes to wear colorful clothes and help people.

The above photo is Prince Charles and Camilla’s Christmas card picture.

This means that of all the photos taken of them in 2011, this is the best they could do. Charles looks bewildered, granddaughter Eliza looks borderline intoxicated, and Camilla looks like a…
