Barack Obama got a Twitter drubbing tonight as a result of comparing US Navy ships to obsolete war horses and bayonets. We’re sure that all of our fine sailors appreciated hearing their Commander in Chief declare them obsolete. As for us denizens of the interwebs, well, someone should have told the president how memes work before they gave him that line. Oh, right, he was being prepped by John Kerry. Never mind.
Obama just lost the Civil War reenactors with that attack on bayonets.—

What do Marines use Bayonets for? To pick Socialists out of their teeth.—
