Wow. This guy just gets smaller all the time, doesn’t he?

So, he gives this press conference and asks us to call our Congressman? WTF? Can’t he just walk across the street and talk to them himself?

If you haven’t seen the compilation video of various people riffing on him, it’s worth your time (though why it ends with Colbert taunting West, I do not know).

Keep it up, Mr President. Little man graphics are easy.

Yes, 0 is in over his head. Remarkable feat, that, given he’s standing in a mud puddle.

Nitpickingly, Colbert was taunting Cain, not West, but it’s a technicality.

It is hard for me not to develop a sort of fond feeling for Burruck Hussane Obaba. Mmm Mmm Mmm. The man has delivered the damage to Democrat party unlike any other politician I can identify.
Plus, he produced a xeroxed facsimile of birff certificate.
That has got to count for something.

Nothing would please me more than our Dear Reader garnering 47 electoral votes in 2012.

Yeah, President Putz is in way over his head. And, apparently:

The President’s plan to intimidate a tax-laden compromise out of the House backfired.

Well, give the guy some credit. He did have a plan written down but the Whitehouse Aide shook his Etch-a-Sketch too hard and erased it all on the way to see Congress.

The problem with speaking from a podium is that no one can see you stomping your feet.

He was damned near infinitesimal when the dumber 54% of the electorate got together and elected the idiot.

He has to lose in 2012. If you think the Lefty head-explosions were fun to watch when Bush won a second term, imagine what they’ll be like when their preening, narcissistic, dumb-as-a-fucking-stump Messiah gets shitcanned. I just hope the GOP unifies around a plausible candidate. I like Rick Perry from what I’ve seen of him, but even Romney would be an improvement on this ridiculous man-child. Hell, right now I think Joe Biden actually would do a better job. The depths of stupidity to which the American public will descend are practically boundless, but even then, you guys only elected Jimmy Carter once.

Romney would make sense as running on the same ticket with Obaba, as his VP.

Hey what happened tot hat guy who said that Obama should be ass-ass-inated?
Didn’t he get off on some Konstitutional clause?

Oceania, there will always be loons. Yourself, for instance. Statistical theory says that if the population is large enough, the six-sigma West of Strange bins start having nonzero contents.

When Obama was first elected and his, umm, sterling qualities first became evident, there was a brief spate of assassination pr0n in leftoid circles. This I regarded as wish-fulfillment — they get rid of an incompetent bound to discredit them and gain a bloody shirt to wave ’til the end of time, like JFK but more so. I said then, and I say now, that the Right won’t give them the satisfaction. Again as with Kennedy, if they want it done they’ll have to recruit one of their own.

I wish I could write like that, Ric. Oh wait, I can–stealing that one!

Here’s another 6·Σ line you may find useful:

I’m stealing that, Uncle Al. For work. Because it fits. Perfectly.

In physics and engineering, our ears would prick up when we saw something at 4σ* out from the mean. CDF of a normal distribution at that point is 0.999968 (sez Mathematica). This isn’t to say that Oceania isn’t one of the more florid nutbags we’ve seen around these parts.

* note case: σ is conventional notation for standard deviation i.e. square root of variance

And no one answered my question about the poor guy.
Maybe that who ‘curse’ thing skipped a president or two?

David — just my point, actually. A CDF of 0.999968 means there are 32 four-sigmas per million (half of them above and half below the mean, of course). In a country of 300 million people, that makes almost ten thousand flakes of one polarity or the other. The Birthday Paradox insures that you’ll run into at least one of them in the course of a day’s activities.

I’m not sure why everyone is getting into high school stats this week … its not like anyone in physics pays too much attention to means and sigma – nor has any use for them. I prefer FWHM, much more reliable, and useful.
