Yelling "Play Ball!" at the end may have been a little much


Remember how Barack Obama was always showing his disrespect for America by never putting his hand over his heart (at least one time) during the national anthem, putting his big black feet up on America's desk, telling Marines to hold umbrellas over himself and a damp foreigner, and saluting his Marine guard while holding coffee. Oh, yes, and that time Republican lip-readers were certain Michelle Obama said, as a flag was being folded, "All this for a damn flag," because what else would she have said?

Thank Crom we finally have a president who loves America, which makes it OK for him to dance around, grin, and sing along (badly and off key, we'll assume) with the anthem during a Memorial Day ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, right in front of the Tomb of the Unknowns:

As Yr Editrix put it when she posted the Twitter video in the Wonkette Sekret ChatCave yesterday, "At first I thought people criticizing this were just petty, but this is actually kind of awful and horrifying." We agree, because that's our job, of course. But just LOOK at the draft dodger bouncing around like he can't wait for the cake to be served. Jesus cured his bone spurs!

Now, obviously, from the Twitters, we learned there is absolutely nothing wrong with a President singing along with the anthem, because he is a patriot and loves America. As for the bopping, well, that's fine, too, because Donald Trump, unlike some black presidents named Obama, LOVES AMERICA, so shut up. He can honor our military dead however he wants.

We will now leave you to contemplate the likely reactions had Barack Obama even once swayed and fidgeted during the anthem like a small boy who needs to pee. But then, he never really loved America, did he? If he had, he would have told some intelligence secrets to the Russian foreign minister in the Oval Office.

As it was, he posted this photo to Twitter. Notice how he still has to make America's holidays all about himself, by being in the picture. What an egotist!

Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug ... He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks: dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and satire.

Yr Wonkette is no stranger to the double-edged weapon of sarcasm, we'll admit. OR WILL WE? It's part of our postmodern toolkit, with which we seek to undermine patriotism, faith, the free market, the family, and ultimately America itself. Duh. But we would never be so naive as to think we have a monopoly on irony and sarcasm, oh no, far from it. This week, we dip into the sludge of deletia for some brilliant examples of cutting rightwing wit turned back on us, with devastating results. Hope you're not all TRIGGERED so much you have to go find a SAFE SPACE, libs!

This weekend, hundreds of people are gathering in Denver, Colorado for the 2018 Flat Earth Conference -- two whole days of people with suspiciously Andy Warhol-like hair yelling "Where's the curve?!?" and talking about ice walls -- and we are missing out! Flat earthers are kind of the best of all conspiracy theorists, because aside from a few fascists and anti-Semites in the mix, they are mostly harmless cranks who just want to feel like they are way smarter than all of the scientists. As far as I know, believing in a Flat Earth, while stupid, has never hurt anyone -- which is honestly kind of refreshing these days!
