Obama Administration Match Game!

Carefully examine these three real-life situations currently in the news:

1) A government minister of one of our allies offers to pay for the assassination of an American citizen.

2) An artist dunks a the son of the Lord, Jesus Christ, in urine.

3) An amateurish video is posted on YouTube that is unflattering to the Prophet Mohammad.

Now, see if you can match each of those with one of the following official Obama Administration reactions:

A) "Inflammatory and inappropriate.”

B) "Offensive, disgusting, and reprehensible."

C) "No comment."

If you are like most Planet Moron readers, you're probably thinking, "Hey, you said no pop quizzes!"

Also, "Well, number 1 is easy. Clearly, offering to pay for the assassination of an American citizen would garner the most vociferous and full-throated objection."

Not quite.

As it turns out, the Obama administration found Pakistan Railway Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour's offer of $100,000 to kill filmmaker Sam Bacile to be only "inflammatory and inappropriate." (It will be interesting to see what the Administration's reaction will be if Bacile is actually assassinated.  Perhaps, they will view that as "unfortunate and ill-advised," or possibly "rude and discourteous.")

That still leaves two matches left.  While you might think that dunking a crucifix in urine might qualify as at least "disgusting" (if only because dunking anything in urine other than maybe a pregnancy strip is disgusting), the Obama Administration actually has no comment on that bit of religious agitation, perhaps fearful that bloodthirsty Christians will surround the Edward Tyler Nahem Gallery in Manhattan and demand that they be allowed to hand out leaflets in an overly aggressive manner.

No, the Obama Administration takes on the role of "Film-Critic-in-Chief, and saves their greatest objections for an amateurish YouTube video.

Okay, let's give you one more try. Which of these things doesn't belong with the others?

1) Targeting Coptic Christians.
2) Bullying women.
3) Stealing a country’s resources.
4) Slandering the prophet of Islam.

If you chose, "4" because all the others are acts of violence or theft while "slander" in this case is really just a matter of exercising free speech, sorry, you got that one wrong too.  It was a trick question.

They all belong together.

Better luck next time!
