When truly stupid bloggers blog.


First, there was the original article in French (emphasis tail-waggingly added):

Barack Obama a écrit à Jacques Chirac

Le président américain vient d'adresser une lettre «très sympathique » à Jacques Chirac, selon l'expression de ce dernier. «Je suis certain que nous pourrons au cours des quatre années à venir collaborer ensemble dans un esprit de paix et d'amitié afin de construire un monde plus sûr» , écrit le successeur de George W. Bush au prédécesseur de Nicolas Sarkozy. En évoquant le mot de « paix», Obama rend un hommage implicite à l'action de l'ancien président français qui s'était opposé à la guerre en Irak. Une intervention américaine contre laquelle le futur président américain s'était opposé comme sénateur, lors du vote au Congrès.

Now, even if you don't understand French, it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to realize that "écrit le successeur de George W. Bush au prédécesseur de Nicolas Sarkozy" translates as "wrote the successor of George W. Bush to the predecessor of Nicolas Sarkozy." I mean, how howlingly stupid would you have to be to think that Obama actually thought Jacques Chirac was still the president of France? Oh ... this howlingly stupid.

And how doubly howlingly stupid would you have to be to read Free Republic and simply and unthinkingly reprint the idiocy they write? I recommend a trip to the Blogging Tories to answer that one.

OH, LOOK! This is what happens when not-stupid people write stuff. See the difference?

Go ahead ... pop by the BTs and see who just made an ass of themselves.

JESUS FREAKIN' CHRIST!
Witness, if you will, the mass dumbassitude. Mercifully, buried in the midst of all that retardedness is the occasional voice of sanity.

The stupid really does burn, doesn't it?

Do you think if we asked nicely the BTs would stay away from anything French?

so if I understand this, the reason he was talking to Chirac is because he was replying to Chirac?

Shocking, isn't it? International figures sometimes write each other letters, even when they're not currently in political office. Apparently some people out there have never heard of such a thing.

What's the matter with this Obama? Does he plan to be friends with all the members of the Axis of Evil? First he's wishing the Iranians a happy new year. Now he wants to make nice with France too? Aren't we still at war with them?

Much too formal, SQ. Try Crisse de calisse de tabernak d'hostie!

Maybe Obama should send a letter like this to Chrétien.

Just kidding, just kidding.

There was another story like this I heard today about when the Irish PM visited a little while back. I guess staffers mixed up the speeches in the teleprompter and the Irish PM started reading Obama's speech... He quickly realized his mistake and the problem was fixed. When Obama then stepped up to the mic, he made a joke of it by pretending he was also reading the wrong speech and thanked himself.

The wingnuts reported the story as if it wasn't a joke and Obama was so attached to his teleprompter that he'd say anything that appeared on it. This, even though it was quite clear to all of the press in attendance that it was a gracious joke (made at his own expense no less).
