If a Drone Falls in the Forest and No Liberal Hears It...

Some analysts wonder why the Obama campaign is talking about Big Bird and deflowering your daughter rather than his many significant accomplishments. For example:

For an administration that is the first to embrace targeted killing on a wide scale, officials seem confident that they have devised an approach that is so bureaucratically, legally and morally sound that future administrations will follow suit.

If you’re on the receiving end, it looks a little different. From the same Washington Post story:

In one instance, Mullen, the former Joint Chiefs chairman, returned from Pakistan and recounted a heated confrontation with his counterpart, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.

Mullen told White House and counterterrorism officials that the Pakistani military chief had demanded an answer to a seemingly reasonable question: After hundreds of drone strikes, how could the United States possibly still be working its way through a “top 20” list?

That’s some reset button.

But don’t worry, libs! It’ll sound totally cool when Obama puts it in his next sex ad: Did the earth move for you?
