  • Classy: National Review Column Calls President Obama "Hussein," Suggests First Lady Is Fat

    Blog ››› ››› JAMISON FOSER

    I can't imagine the thought process that led National Review to post this garbage on its website's home page:

    Believe it or not, the actual column is worse: At one point, David Kahan refers to President Obama simply as "Hussein" and suggests that if Obama loses re-election, he'll "call out every union thug and goon in these United States to occupy the Capitol, shred the drapery, steal the silver, and molest the servants." And he calls First Lady Michelle Obama fat:

    My first thought was that we should offer Barry the vacant throne of his native Hawaiian Islands. Sure, he'd have to put on three or four hundred pounds to fit the royal robes of King Kamehameha, but even Barry might blanch at the thought of adding King Kam's full moniker to his roster of names: Kalani Pai'ea Wohi o Kaleikini Keali'ikui Kamehameha o 'Iolani i Kaiwikapu kaui Ka Liholiho Kunuiakea, the Second. Still, Michelle would have a real shot of slipping into Queen Kapiolani's muumuu collection and making it her own, especially after a few more meals of short ribs in Vail, the calorie count of which is only slightly offset by her incessant finger-wagging at the rest of us.

    Remember, National Review is supposedly a bastion of respectable, intellectual conservative thought.
