Captain Kickass: Check Me Out Talkin' To Foreign Leaders With A Baseball Bat In Hand

"Official White House photo."

It's still a mystery why President Barack Obama was holding a baseball bat during his telephone conversation with Turkey's prime minister earlier this week.

And it just so happens that Turkey is involved with arming the Syrian rebels.

So given tonight's exclusive leak to Reuters, seems like the "mystery" of the baseball bat is solved.


Now, you're not supposed to put these things together and think, "Gee, our president really kicks a lot of ass" or anything. It just sort of happened.

Now if you do, for some reason, think to yourself, "Gee, if the president favors a muscular, baseball-bat-wielding, ass-kicking foreign policy, then he's a good man and I should vote for him," well go right ahead and think that.

See, that whole thing about a President using that to boost his popularity being a bad thing? Remember when we used to hear about that? The WarMaster Bush using photos from Air Force One to appeal to people's lizard-brain preferences for the martial?

That, like so much else we once knew, ended January 2009.

Now it's okay. Captain Kickass is just awesome as he moves pawns around the world's chessboard and it's perfectly all right to think he's awesome.


I'm Old Enough To Remember When Wag the Dog Wasn't Cool

It's a transformative presidency in so many ways.
