The President, only two weeks over 60, has been enjoying a second childhood this week. First, he let it all hang out with British Prime Minister Tony Blair: “Yo! Blair. Them Syrians gotta stop this shit.” Then he tried to give Frau Merkel a back rub. Don’t get me wrong, her massively large conservative policies would make any Republican swoon.
Now, in a bit of Texas bravado, or perhaps to show Kim Jong “Limpodong” Il how it’s done in Texas, he fires a few warning shots at the Marshall Islands. Maybe the Marshall Islands messed with Texas (hat tip JLev).
What scares me about this is that the article seems to have doubted we knew how to do it: “The Air Force successfully launched an unarmed intercontinental ballistic missile early Thursday.” (Emphasis mine). Do people really think the United States is as pathetic as North Korea?
