Also, Bandito Bollocks Available

Fishersville Mike, fellow backronym aficionado, points to Don Surber’s ABBA meme.

There was “Waterloo” in honor of Sen. Jim DeMint, then “S.O.S.” for obvious reasons.

How can this blog fall short or celebrating the meme and US foreign policy naïvete in Honduras? Answer: inconceivable!

Honduran ‘Peace’ Talks?

by Smitty (h/t Lucianne)

Daniel Cancel at Bloomberg uses the title “Zelaya Returns to Washington After Honduras Peace Talks Stall”.
Just exactly how are these “Peace” talks? Has Mel Zelaya declared “war” on his own country? The Honduran fiasco has been the political equivalent of Jenny Sanford throwing Mark out of the house and changing the locks.
The situation is no more a “war” than it ever was a “coup”.

Honduras update, courtesy of PJTV

An excellent clip. CNN is called the “Chavez News Network”, as opposed to the “Clinton News Network” down in Honduras.
Support PJTV, and the renaissance of journalism.

DeMint on Honduras: right on!

by Smitty (h/t Right Wing Video)

Clip here if the YouTube embed is failing. (?)

What a giant disappointment is President Obama’s nominee for Assistant Secretary of State Mr. Valenzuela.
The Hondurans seem analogous to a home owner with a small yard beset by a burglar.
The home owner breaks out a weapon of noticeable caliber, and ventilates the burglar.
Unfortunately, the kinetic energy of the impact moves the corpse off the home owner’s property.
Then a bunch of pointy-headed little bureaucrats show up and claim that the final resting spot of the burglar is prima facie evidence of excessive force.

They told me if I voted for John McCain, my country would look like it is run by people with a disturbing affinity towards fascism. And they were right!

Fausta remains reference (a) on this story.

Honduras: now what?

by Smitty

Jacobson points to boots on the ground reporting a tense situation.
“Zelaya’s plane was not allowed to land,” according to the wires.
Are they warming up the teleprompter with the “I have consistently supported the Honduran people on this one” speech?
Fausta has the updates. Zelaya didn’t land.
