This IDF recruit more than ready to take on Ahmadinehad (subliminal message: ‘Hatin’ is bad’)

At some point I’ll post something serious today, but I just had to share this, too:

The video shows Ron Bronstein, an enlistee in the Israel Air Force, “shuffling” through the basic training process to the tune of LMFAO’s Party Rock Anthem.

In the video, Bronstein dances in the midst of many mundane basic training backdrops that are all too familiar to Israelis who have done military service.

And in case you just can’t wait for something serious: Bibi decided to take the ‘subtle’ approach at the U.N. yesterday, just days after Holocaust-denier Ahmadinejad’s Yom Kippur address to the body…

    By the way, in case you don’t get the parenthetical in my headline (oh, ye woefully out-of-it oldsters):

    The song to which the young recruit is shufflin’ is one that I’ve been listening to a lot as part of the NPR “Songs of Summer” playlist I wrote about awhile back. In fact, it’s one of two that have grown to be favorites of mine (with Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep“).

    To fully get the spirit of the song, watch the video, which takes off on “The Walking Dead” and “28 Days Later.” BECAUSE it is such a lark, without a serious note in its body, it cracks me up every time I get to one part: In a sudden, second-long pause in the beat, the singer says parenthetically, and as a total non sequitur to the rest of the song, “Hatin’ is bad.” Actually, he kind of drops the “d” so it’s more like “Hatin’ is ba’.” This little bit of socially-aware piety, this parenthetical mini-sermon, is so wildly out of place, so by-the-way, that it reinforces the sense of whimsy in the piece.

    Anyway, I enjoy it. And so does this recruit, obviously.

    One key element in that story about Netanyahu’s speech — he implied that Israel won’t attack Iran before the spring.

    Assuming that’s not just disinformation designed to give the IDF the advantage of surprise in an earlier attack, that removes it as a cloud looming over our election at least.

    “The Daily Caller has learned…”

    That is the warning that you are about to be spoon-fed distortion, Steven.

    You’re right Mark, I guess it never happened. You might want to take off the NPR blinders they hand out.

    Eric Holder is the right’s boogeyman because he’s attempting to bring some sensibility to the attorney generals office. Can’t have some uppity *** trying to take away a state’s freedom to disenfranchise voters not can we?

    “he’s attempting to bring some sensibility to the attorney generals office”

    By sending guns to Mexico to end up being used to kill Americans… then plead ignorance.

    bud, why are you bringing race into this discussion?

    It has nothing to do with “the IDF, or Netanyahu, or Ahmadinejad, or LMFAO, or Party Rock, or Shufflin’” and if perchance Steven moderates in other venues (I would bet the farm if I had one that he does), he shoulda/coulda/woulda been given a taste of his own rigid debate-style medicine if I were the moderator. To wit, “Stay on topic.”


    But that hairdo photo was ALMOST worth the digression.
