Dick-Waving You Can Believe In

President Obama whips it out: “Ask Osama bin Laden and the 22 out of 30 top Al-Qaeda leaders who have been taken off the field whether I engage in appeasement… or whoever’s left out there.” [TPM]


“You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way! And that’s how you get Capone.”

The Chicago way appears to still work.

@Dave H: Great. Now I have to figure out how to work the Odessa Steps riff into that.

(And no, I’m not explaining the reference. And yes, I have the soundtrack album.)

@nojo: Okay. Something like:

Baby carriage slowly rolls down compound steps as Navy Seals chopper in.

Close enough for blockbusters.

@redmanlaw: Correct! As riffed by Brian De Palma.

@redmanlaw: Ebert sez it never happened in real life.

barry o’bama hit em where it hurts. the teapublican’ts didn’t get to nuke nobody in ww2 and now o’bama has bin laden in his trophy case. all ronnie, hw, and hw’s idiot son got is noriega, saddam’s pistol, and some east german bricks.

@nojo: I’ve spent time cooling my heels in Chicago Union Station starimg at the baby carriage stairwell and waiting for an Amtrak train. Pretty, but way less glamorous without Andy Garcia and/or endangered babies present.

While I’m snapping my fingers at this bit of dick-waving, since we’re speaking about dick-waving, I’m a little pissed at Black Eagle over the totally non-scientifically based and totally political decision to override the FDA’s decision to permit Plan B to be available over the counter without an age limit.

BTW, despite what Barry said, Plan B is actually BEHIND the counter for ALL women of ALL ages, so they can’t just buy it like they can a bottle of Advil or a can of diet Coke. While they don’t need a script, the ladiez still have to go to a pharmacist and ask him/her for the pills, and the pharmacist will either (a) ideally explain how to use the pills, or (b) curse out and judge the woman as a loose whore for daring to have sex with malfunctioning or no protection. The 16 year old girls aren’t forced to decipher instructions on the box alone, which BTW aren’t that difficult:

Take the pills.
If it’s been more than 4 days since you had sex, it’s too late.

Oh, and what exactly *is* Plan B? The equivalent of 3 doses of the BCP that millions of women take every morning.

However, in other news of reproduction and overpopulation, the crazy pants Duggar lady in Arkansas miscarried her 27th pregnancy, thus sparing her life from certain pregnancy-related complications and death.
