Does mocking the world's effort to call attention to hundreds of girls taken away at gunpoint from their final exams and herded into a jungle make you feel all Foxy?

It certainly does George Will.

Obliviously pissed because Michelle Obama dared appear in an international effort to wake the world to a tragedy, George pulled down his pants and shat on the grass.

It's an exercise in self-esteem. I do not know how adults stand there, facing a camera and say, ‘Bring back our girls' Are these barbarians in the wilds of Nigeria supposed to check their Twitter accounts and say, 'Oh, Michelle Obama's very cross with us, we better change our behavior?'

Power is the ability to achieve intended effects. This is not intended to have any effect on the real world. It's a little bit like environmentalism has become. The incandescent light bulb becomes the enemy. Has no effect whatsoever on the planet, but it makes people feel better about themselves.

This noisome little arrogant man, who has been spoon fed events throughout his long life while sitting in the comfort of his chair, is going to lecture the world because they learned about these kidnappings through Twitter?

I'm in no mood to let that slide.

If I were to stand before this weasel tonight, I would suggest he shove his incandescent light bulbs where the sun don't shine.

That felt good.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
