Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General

Sorry, I just love this headline from Fox News/Nation/whatever.

Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General
November 15, 2010

President Obama's picture book for kids, Of Thee I Sing: A Letter to My Daughters (Knopf, $17.99), pays tribute to 13 Americans whose traits he sees in his own children.

The 31-page book, for kids ages 3 and up, is filled with lyrical questions for Malia, 12, and Sasha, 9, opening with, "Have I told you lately how wonderful you are?"

The book, out Tuesday, is illustrated with Loren Long's paintings of the Obama girls and their dog, Bo, as well as the 13 famous Americans as kids and grown-ups.

A series of two-page spreads asks questions ("Have I told you that you are creative?") across from short tributes. He writes of Georgia O'Keeffe: "She helped us see big beauty in what is small: the hardness of stone and the softness of feather." His most controversial choice may be Sitting Bull, who defeated Custer at Little Bighorn: ("A Sioux medicine man who healed broken hearts and broken promises.")
This is a repackaging of a USA Today story with the headline Obama shares dreams for his kids in book on 13 Americans. The guy is brainwashing our kids again.

If certain members here are going to complain about the media using a term like "gun went off", then I am going to complain about the media being historically inaccurate. Sitting Bull did not kill or cause to be killed General Custer. He killed Lieutenant Colonel Custer.

Sitting Bull was standing up for the Little Guy against out-of-control Big Government.

But it's not the media, it's fox news.

Fox News does it again.

I've restored the original headline, to show how an unbiased source would present the same story.

Crazy Horse led the warriors, Sitting Bull did not get involved in the fighting.

I sometimes think that someone at FOX News works there just to give The Daily Show material to work off of. I can't otherwise imagine a network that thinks that poorly of it's audience's intelligence and ability to reason that it'll push out shit like this.

And then I remember their ratings and I begin to weep for whats left of humanity.

And Custer fought for the North so Obama is basically a member of the KKK.

Re: Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General

Wait a minute. Obama wrote a childrens book that features his own kids in the story and him telling them how much he loves them? Wow, a childrens book with an audience of two. Who would buy that? "Here sweetie, come sit on my lap and I'll read you a story about two specific girls whose father wrote them into a book. And we can all turn the pages and look at the pictures and watch him tell them he loves them. What a thrill that will be for us!"

And the book "pays tribute to 13 Americans". Would Sitting Bull really want to be identified as an American?

Obama: I wrote a book counting you amongst the 13 greatest Americans.
Sitting Bull: Fuck you white man.
Obama: ...but...I'm black
Sitting Bull: (Long pause) Fuck you white man.
Walter Cronkite: And you were there.

Well, if that wasn't enough, now he's getting all touchy feely:

Obama's Hand in Your Crotch (actual article title)

Patiently awaiting for the "Obama eats babies" headlline the next time veal is served at the White House.
