Scandal: Obama was quicker to tweet about Roger Ebert’s death than about Margaret Thatcher’s
The satirical political blog Wonkette REPORTS that certain wingnuts are plowing new ground in the fertile fields of Obamaphobia:
Thanks to the completely sane coverage at the “Christian News Service,”we know that the Chicago thug tweeted a brief message in response to the death of fellow Chicago thug Roger Ebert within 30 minutes of the news of Ebert’s death, while it took an unpardonable two hours for the White House to issue a statement in response to the death of Margaret Thatcher. Even worse, the White House Twitter feed did not link to the emailed statement until 40 minutes after the statement was released, precious minutes during which the Delta Force could have saved American lives. But Barack Obama stood idly by, doing nothing. IMPEACH!
The only logical conclusion is that Barack Obama has some seriously twisted priorities, and will probably come in the night to take your guns, indoctrinate your children, and insist that you watch “Citizen Kane” in a movie theater because that’s the only way to experience it.
CNS News does not appear to have considered the possibility that a statement on the death of a movie critic takes far less time and requires fewer passes through the White House communications apparatus than a statement on the death of a former foreign leader, because only liberals ever watched “The West Wing.”
