You, too, can pretend to crush Obama's head!

Are you really, really, really angry at President Obama?

If so, The Weekly Standard is here to help. The mag is selling an "Obama stress head" doll that lets you take out your rage at the President by crushing his head in your hand.

As the mag puts it, the doll allows you to "crush those half-baked liberal ideas before they do any more damage."

"Pin his ears back, turn that smile upside down," the mag adds. Click below for a special preview of the "Obama stress head," which can be yours for less than $10:

There's more. If you order yours today, they'll throw in the collected works of William Kristol for an additional 99 cents!

"If you order yours today, they'll throw in the collected works of William Kristol for an additional 99 cents!"

Totally overpriced.

Good catch, Greg. What a buncha maroons.

Someone should pass out dildo's and claim its a Kristol stress head.

@Greg: Instead of the lava lamp this would make a great Plum Line giveaway.

But on a more serious note: what's the point of this post?

(BTW: WH denies Kristol's claims about flotilla investigation.)

Because who wouldn't want to be like this guy?

Willie Kristol, another neocon dork living on his daddy's reputation, who couldn't get a date in high school and gets wobbly knees every time Caribou Barbie winks at him.

Andrew Sullivan points to a very interesting Letter to the Editor published in the WSJ by the President of Samson Oil & Gas. The letter recaps the timeline that led to BP's current problem. It's a very concise look at the decision-making that led to the explosion.

BP knew from the very start of the massive oil leak, what the real numbers were. After all they were the one's who knew how much oil their pipeline would carry up to the surface, when they installed the damn thing.

They did not want to let the true massive size of the daily leak be known, because then they would never have been allowed to piddle around, and try all their ways of capturing the oil, and selling it, instead of having being forced to seal of the entire pipeline, and entomb it.

They were lying about the amount of oil leaking, and that makes them willful operators of a massive criminal enterprise.

Time to arrest them, and file charges against them. They having committed an ongoing act of economic and environmental terrorism.

The residents of the gulf coastal areas are feeling terrorized, and defenseless, while The Republicans rush to defend The Foreign, Terror Perpetrating, Criminal Enterprise.

Greg:

A bit sophomoric for my taste, but not quite up to the standards at the UK's The Guardian, which once had an online poll on its website asking "Is it time to assassinate George Bush."

It also once published a column by Charlie Booker which, following a harangue about Bush, wondered "“John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr. - where are you now that we need you?”

No doubt you and your Plummers would have gotten a big kcik out of that one.

There were Plumers who celebrated when Tony Snow died, and was at least one who wished all Republicans would die.

There is no insult or expression of ill will against Bush or Cheney that is too much for Plumers.

I don't think they can get too wee wee'd up about this.

Day two of the Texas Cage Match challenge, and no word from Bill Kristol or his people.

Come on, Bill, grow a pair.

Thanks but no thanks. I like my toilet paper to be of good quality.
