Then there is your conspiracy theory angle:

The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah's rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.

In a way, it would be a relief if true; the knowledge that there is at least some rationale to this spinelessness, however disgusting, would have a shred of merit.

That Act will go down in American history as the single, most damaging, threat to liberty in this country. Billions spent, law abiding people treated like criminals without due process. It truly makes me ashamed and angry at DC and the retards that reside there.

Huh. Same could be said for the Income Tax amendment. Except I bet more people have not only been inconvenienced, but arrested, jailed, and penalized under the IRS codes than the Patriot Act.

To even conceive such absurd thing is totally beyond that could be considered real.

You're right. In keeping with d_r's policy of Perpetual Inversion, we should call Reagan a liberal, in addition to call Obama a conservative. Because it's important to blow up the meaning of all terminology in pursuit of Nirvana In Nihilism (NIN).

Is there a word for the situation when a person is attempting mockery, but the point is so pedestrian as to reflect more shame on the person themselves than the intended target?
