Thursday Humor - The Climate-Adjusted Reason Obama 'Lost' The Debate

Tyler Durden's picture


While some have blamed last night's 'performance anxiety' on the President's efforts to save our economy and not having time to practice, and others at Romney's 'bullying' of the moderator, it seems Al Gore has come up with the real reason - it's the altitude, stupid!


Via Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,


Need a laugh?  Al Gore went on television and blamed Obama’s horrific performance during the debate last night on the altitude!  This is epic.  So according to Al Gore we should be very concerned should Obama negotiate any deals with any leaders in the capital cities of La Paz, Bolivia (11,942 ft); Quito, Ecuador (9,350 ft); Bogota, Columbia (8,612 ft); Mexico City, Mexico (7,350 ft) and Nairobi, Kenya (5,889 ft).  For comparison Denver is 5,280 ft above sea level.  For a full list of capital cities Obama should avoid if he gets a second term go here.

I have also figured out why our policy in Afghanistan is such a disaster.  Kabul is higher than Denver at 5,873 ft.

Who let Al Gore out of his cage yesterday?  Watch the video below and have a laugh!



oh, and by the way, even simple folk like us know that if you are prone to altitude sickness, a quick Diamox beforehand takes care of it (especially at a measly 5300 feet)...

Poor Al (sniff) Sounds like he needs his third chakra released to help him process reality.  Given the amount of hot air produced by Washington, to stop AGW we should send all the politicians to FEMA camps, to be educated, of course.

Well, we can add this to his life-long list of ridiculous conclusions.  Somehow people still listen and believe him.  Must be all the Botox; it makes him look confident or it could just be that he's a complete fucking psychopath that believes his own lies.  I'm thinking it's combination of the two.

Or Joe Biden according to rumors coming out of Chicago.  It seems Obama likes older white men.  Not that there is anything wrong with that.

<-- It's more likely that Obamney and Shalom will usher in a new age of economic prosperity.

Of course it was the white half that showed up, the goat herding darker Kenyan side is acclimated to much higher hills.  Let's just hope the white half doesn't doesn't show up in Islamabad and take a trip up the karakorum highway to the country retreat for security consultations, or we'll be hearing about nuquular insecurity right before the mushroom clouds start popping along the pakeeeeeeeestani skyline.

As much as I fundamentally despise any incumbent running for re-election, I didn't think Obama's performance last night was that much worse than the other meat puppets.  However, I really can't be bothered to sit through that debate again and pay even more attention to it.

Oddly enough, the hair too.  I would imagine Romney's manicured grey stripes would merge, but then he would strip the equity from the remaining dark hair.

He was praying that Obama got re-elected so he'd have another chance at the inside angle of packaging and marketing carbon tax credits...he wants to be a billionaire so he can pay Barry's higher tax rate....oh, that's after payng the utility bill for his home in Tennesee with a carbon footprint 20x the average American home.  He's a greedy hypocritical fucktard dickwad who will say anything to suck cash out of stupid people.

Reminds me of the old joke.

A black guy was praying one day when God, for some reason, decided to answer him. 
"Lord," asked the black guy. "Why are my legs so long?"
"So you can run like the wind through the jungle."
"Lord, why is my hair so kinky?"
"So it won't get caught on anything as you run through the jungle."
"Lord, why is my skin so dark?"
"So that you won't get burned by the sun's intense rays in the jungle."
And then the black guy asked, "Lord, why am I in Chicago?"

This one is good too:


A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. As he enters, he asks St. Peter, "I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?"St Peter said, "That's a question only God can answer."    So the zebra went off in search of God. When he found Him, the zebra asked, "God, please - I must know. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?" God simply replied "You are what you are."   The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked him, "Well, did God straighten out your query for you?"   The zebra looked puzzled. "No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.'" St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, "Well then, there you are. You are white with black stripes."   The zebra asked St. Peter, "How do you know that for certain?" "Because," said St. Peter, "If you were black with white stripes, God would have said, "You is what you is."
