The Whole Andy McCarthy

I don't get this:

Re: Getting healthier by the day! [Andy McCarthy]

Turns out: it's not just me. Our buddy Steve Schippert reports that hope and change has come to ... AL QAEDA!

Ayman Zawahiri announced today that, under the Recruitment Stimulus Initiative Insha Allah (RSIIA), the terror network has created or saved 10,000 jihadist jobs (resulting in a concurrent creation or saving of 720,000 virgins!).

Zawahiri added that al Qaeda has appointed an Explosive Czar. It has also taken over al-Shabaab in Somalia — although Zawahiri insists this is a temporary take-over because, with two wars to run, the last thing CEO Osama bin Laden wants to be doing right now is running a failing cell in Somalia.

There's no link in the story to Steve Schippert and whatever it is he has to say, so I suppose you have to deal with the satire you're given, which is a conflation of Osama and Obama. HA HA!

Also union members are dangerous terrorists.

It's not beyond the usual stupidity or unfunniness but I feel there must be some code I'm missing that would help me understand just what prompted McCarthy to post this. Surely he wouldn't just waste his day posting bullshit on the internet.

My guess is that he's trying to make fun of Obama's talking about jobs "created or saved." He put up a previous post just under two hours before this one which appears to be another attempt at humor using the "created or saved" line. It seems he found it so good he just had to respond to it himself. So far, no one else has.

What's Steve Schippert got to do with it?

I don't know. Maybe he's referring to this Schippert post from late April.

He's now added a link to the pushups bit, so yeah, and the Schippert thing makes sense...but my brain is just not getting it. It's just one of those joke hate-fucks I guess.
