Poll! Name the Most Retarded Justification for the Coup D'état in Honduras

childstreasurey.jpgLet freedom ring, bitches! The U.S. has just come out with some whacked policy statement explaining that while the situation in Honduras is like totally a coup d'état, we are technically going to refrain from calling it that. How lame is that? Super lame! But it's really just the latest of all the bizarre ways people have decided to described the violent overthrow of a democratically elected government in the last 24 hours. All this begs the question: Whose description is the most tortured, Orwellian, or otherwise insane?

  • Candidate 1: Interim dictator Roberto Micheletti describes how he found himself in this new role: "I did not reach this position because of a coup. I am here because of an absolutely legal transition process."
  • Candidate 2: The WSJ's Mary Anastacia O'Grady describes the military overthrow as all part of a country's democratic system of "checks and balances."
  • Candidate 3: Ed Morrissey at Hot Air invents an awesome new concept. This was "less of a coup and more of a military impeachment."
  • Candidate 4: At the Corner, Ray Walser praised the way "Congress, the courts, and the military joined forces" in a "deliberate, bipartisan manner."
  • Candidate 5: Rick Moran at the American Thinker doesn't care if it's a coup, only who it serves: "Does the fact that the coup is in the interests of the United States even matter to our president?"

Your turn starts...now!

Had to go for "checks and balances".

That WAS tough. On the straight-up lies scale, O'Grady gets the nod, but what else is new? "Military impeachment" wins most Orwellian.

But the poll asks whose justifications are the most retarded, so I had to go w/ Rick Moran's "Fuck it who cares?" This ignorant jerk used "banana republic" as a factual term, repeatedly praised the "almost unprecedented" civility of the golpistas (they could have just murdered the President, but didn't!), stated that Zelaya was flown to Venezuela, and the retarded gist of his retarded piece is that the coup is somehow good for US interests. He clearly has no clue about the history or current state of Honduras or the rest of Latin America, so basically he's for the coup because the negroe president isn't. He should win the poll along with a nice big cup of STFU.

Is this poll legal?

damn that was tough. I think I spent more time weighing the options on this than on the last school board vote.

This was a hard one.
