Pre-Kickoff Non-Football Mostly-Politics Open Thread

Obama is considering his own debilitating gas attack.

President Obama is considering a high-profile address to the nation on the need for military intervention in Syria — a speech that could come as early as this week — according to top lawmakers and administration officials.

...

“I think the president needs to sit in the Oval Office, look at every American in the eye, and explain the reason why this is important,” Menendez said on “Morning Joe.” ”And I think he’ll do that.”

Oh and the whip count on "no's" is at 217, just short one vote of a majority.

MSNBC is literally pumping out pro-Obama BuzzFeed-style memes.

A 26-year-old "expert" informing McCain's and Kerry's views on Syria is herself an advocate for the Syrian rebels.

What a CURVEBALL no one could have seen coming.

The woman whose opinion lawmakers are relying on to go to war in Syria is also a paid advocate for the war-torn country’s rebels.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State John Kerry encouraged members of the House of Representatives to read a Wall Street Journal op-ed by 26-year-old Elizabeth O’Bagy — an analyst with the Institute for the Study of War — who asserted that concerns about extremists dominating among the Syrian rebels are unfounded.

“Contrary to many media accounts, the war in Syria is not being waged entirely, or even predominantly, by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida die-hards,” O’Bagy wrote for the Journal on Aug. 30. “Moderate opposition groups make up the majority of actual fighting forces,” she wrote.

But in addition to her work for the Institute for the Study of War, O’Bagy is also the political director for the Syrian Emergency Task Force (SETF), a group that advocates within the United States for Syria’s rebels — a fact that the Journal did not disclose in O’Bagy’s piece.

Earlier, Drew noted a Reuters piece pushing back against Kerry's assertions that the "moderate democrats" were in control in the Free Syrian Army.

Paper: no evidence of Global Warming in Germany for 20 years.

If you weren't certain, they're still lying about ObamaCare.

I demanded that Bruce Springsteen explain his complete silence on #Syria.

Is it possible the Mumbling Tribune of the People now supports this jingoistic War On Brown People just because his Democratic Dreamboat is in office?


There's more. That's not the best joke.

If you missed it, I wrote my funniest post ever.

And now, an old video, which you've probably seen, but it's new to me: A kitten makes the acquaintance of a Hedgehog.


And: A review of the new Robocop trailer.

Nah, bro.
