Drill, Baby, Drill
Apparently channeling her former boss Hillary "What Difference Does It Make?" Clinton, Susan Rice -- our erstwhile ambassador to the United Nations, most recently seen last September peddling the Video Did It excuse for the Benghazi attacks -- had this to say about the anticipated UN response to North Korea's test of its new and improved nuclear boom-boom device:
We’ll do the usual drill.
II take it by that Rice means a parade of furrowed brows and condemnations from the international "community," followed by calls for those kinda-sorta sanctions that don't really work and get vetoed by China anyway. Sound about right? Right.
Rather than viewing this as a blatant rip-off of Dame Hillary's moves, I'm choosing to look at Rice's statement as more of an homage. In fact, I think the rest of the White House playahs should get in in the action while it's still hot. Perhaps a naming contest for the official second term catch phrase?
Secretary of State John Effin' Kerry: "Well, it's not like Israel is a close friend."
Defense Secretary Wanna Be Chuck Hagel: "I've always found carrier battle groups to be a bit overrated."
Press Secretary "Carny Barker" Jim: "If the Second Amendment was so damn important, it would've come first."
His Highness Barack Hussein Obama the First: "I never said that."
Let the good times roll! Oh, and guys -- if you do happen to use any of the stuff you see here, I'm more than happy to take PayPal.
