Even though this photo was taken on 8/14/45 when the surrender was announced, I thought it was appropriate for today, the 66th anniversary of the day the anniversary was actually signed.
Thinking of that event reminds me of this cringe-inducing gaffe by our brilliant Dear Reader, Barack Hussein Obama (praise be his name), in which he explained why he doesn’t like to use the word “victory.” As noted on the cool blog, SodaHead:
“I’m always worried about using the word ‘victory,’ because, you know, it invokes this notion of Emperor Hirohito coming down and signing a surrender to MacArthur,” Obama told ABC News.
It wasn’t Hirohito.
57 states …Hirohito …police acted stupidly. Remind me again–Gov. Rick Perry is the one who is too dumb to be president, right?
