Oops: White House says David Axelrod supports epilepsy

The White House is very fond of tweeting photos … of President Obama (see, e.g., here and here). Monday morning, it tweeted a photo of a smiling Obama watching a video of David Axelrod shaving his mustache “in support of epilepsy.” As Twitchy reported earlier, Mr. Axelrod shaved his mustache to raise money for epilepsy research. The White House seems to have left out the word “research.”

Given the Administration’s recent spelling mishaps, we should probably assume the White House made a mistake, not that Axelrod is trying to promote epilepsy.

    Obama then went on a 32 state tour to promote his historic, unwavering and laser-like support for epilepsy while announcing a new tax on epilepsy treatments in order to fund treatments for epilepsy victims.

    I hear this often from the Komen folks. “I’m going to walk to support breast cancer.”

    Me, “Uh, you want MORE breast cancer??”

      If you haven’t watched the documentary “Pink Ribbons, Inc” (about the corporate bastardization of inherent American generosity toward what could be a good cause but actually ISN’T) here is a link:

      (Note that this is played on the LOGO channel’s website. If the gay-friendly commercials on the LOGO website video player bother you, please just ignore and mute, because this is the only place I’ve found online that you can watch the documentary for free. And everyone should watch the documentary. When I have extra spending money, I plan on buying it to share directly with friends and family; for right now, this is the only way I know how to spread the word.)

    Actually the CIA is almost finished developing a serum that’s sprayed on crack and only effects A.A.s.

    B-O tripled the funding for its development in 2010, this was done via a purposely “poorly” worded XO.

    At that point it still would have taken another seven years to complete— which would have pushed its availability into 2017.

    It was the “unaccounted for” stimulus money that allowed its completion before the end of this month.

    Just one of the illegal projects funded by “mis-“placed stimulus funds.

    For thos who are interested in such things, the source is the same detective agency that’s on retainer for Hairy Reid.

    Look! Somebody’s doing something semi-newsworthy! Let’s get a photo of the President reacting to that semi-newsworthy thing! You know — that thing that somebody … else … is doing.

    It’s just a typo. Was supposed to be “in support of idiocy”.

      @TocksNedlog:

      I’m not certain you’re correct.

      Too visible a conflict of interest.
