    Well, when you socialismists keep insisting that Iraq exists and that Egypt is actually in Africa, what do you expect Faux News to do? Sheesh. Grow up already libs!

    WTF?!? That map doesn’t have the West Bank coloured in as part of Israel. I expect that to be corrected in the next version, along with renaming that large country on the right hand side of the map “MORDOR”.

    God damn, you fucking liberals just can’t be satisfied, can you? We have your god-damned faggot map with its pictures of the Urf and we got all the gay lines going everywhere and we stick on names of countries and shit. Jesus, Christ, how much more fucking nagging are you going to do just because, OMG, something in a map is in the wrong place or has the wrong god-damned name beside it. You bunch of pointy-head ivory tower faggots, why can’t you be like normal people and just look at the colors and shit and understand that it’s ‘the Middle East’ or whatever it is? God, you act like you’d just die if somebody puts a few countries in the god-damned wrong place.

    As pointed out by governor and famous hiker Sanford, the liberal FOXNOOZ labels it “IRAN” without it being “IRAN (D)” which is the real truth for all those M$Mers who want Barack HUSSEIN Obama to impose Shambhala law.

    Well, the Pentagon’s Defense Policy Board did say back in August of 2002 that:

    Iraq is the tactical pivot. Saudi Arabia is the strategic pivot. Egypt is the prize.

    Looks like Fox is rewriting geography to make it so, you know, yay! We win! The neocons were right all along!

  28. Darth Revan said,

    July 28, 2009 at 16:04

    I’m not too surprised, really. The British were fairly fast-and-loose with their random line-drawing and labelling on maps of their empire; our imperialists are merely carrying the tradition forward.

    Obama’s class warfare hate the rich and blame the successful is wearing old. Especially as the middle class wakes up and realizes that the rich are the only ones who will bring the jobs back and then only when Obama’s “new socialism” fails!

    May the country and her peoples prosper as the truth of “Fraud Obama” is revealed!

    As for Obama’s marxist agenda…If you want a subservient demoralized populace to accommodate your dream of sucking the wealth of America dry as one of Obama’s ruling Politburo… you will have to take your illegitimate President and his radical Marxism somewhere else. There are too many rational, reasonable free thinking Americans left who will not allow Obama’s soft tyranny to succeed!

  30. Jim/The Velvet Blog said,

    July 28, 2009 at 16:10

    Completely off-topic, but this made me laugh. I’m on Borders’ e-mail list. The bookstore is currently plugging Malkin’s latest with this description:

    “As President Obama faces one of his first divisive challenges in office, Malkin offers a strident take on the administration thus far.”

    I guess being strident is a selling point now.

    Right, because poor immigrants never, say, started a business from scratch and ended up being, ohhhhhhhhhhh, the biggest car company in history, or anything like that!

    There’s absolutely zero history in America of any businesses being opened by the poor or immigrants or anything like that, noooooooo sirreee! :-D

    And more evidence of Lie-beral media bias – even at Fox! “Middle” East, what a load of socialism. More like “Extremesist East”. Seriously, I can’t believe how the emmessemm is so anti-centrism that they’d use “Middle” to label the cradle of Islamhomoterror. Maybe “Lefty” East. Yeah – that’s what it should be called – teh Left East.

    As may be, but CNN this morning was wall-to-wall wingnut between scary stories about illegal immigrants getting Government Care!!! and Harry-and-Louise: The Next Generation ads saying “Gummit bureaucrats will get BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR DOCTOR!!!!1″

    I do wonder how that plays with the 95% of their audience on Medicare.

    Not so long ago they were alternating between the last runs of the “United Against a Nuclear Iran” saber-rattling ads and neocon interviews saying we needed to support the people of Iran.

    I’d avoid cable news if I could, but they plunk a big TV full of it in front of me at the gym. I guess it’s time to bring a remote.

    That being said, I think what I just said, and this should go without saying, also applies to Egypt.
