Irony Meter Overcharge of the Week

Donald Rumsfeld, one of the most incompetent Secretaries of Defense in the history of this country (so much so that eight retired Generals called for his resignation back in April 2006), has demolished an irony meter by slamming Obama's foreign policy and claiming that a "trained ape" could do better.  

"This Administration, the White House, and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement. It doesn't take a genius."

Funny enough, an ape wouldn't need any training to do a better job as Secretary of Defense than Rumsfeld.

CNN should be ashamed of themselves

Good God, I know CNN hasn't been anything resembling a decent news organization in many, many years but this type of shit is straight up TMZ level anti-journalism. A "psychic" named Lisa Williams was interviewed by "Dr." Drew Pinsky on his show about the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines plane. She actually claimed she avoids "hard, concrete evidence" to do her job properly.
"Naturally, I don't have hard, concrete evidence." Lisa Williams confessed. "I think any psychic who has hard, concrete evidence can't do their job correctly. They'll just work off what they know. I tend to work off what I don't know."

 That's right. She believes that you have to ignore evidence in order to find out the truth of the matter.

It's a testament to society's failings that people like this are given legitimacy by the mainstream media and can build a career off of conning the gullible. Next up, CNN should bring out Tila Tequila so we can hear her theories on how the Evil Jewish Illuminati Shadow Government made the plane disappear with alien magic.
