Hey, it's happened to all of us from time to time, right? You have a pal, he gets into some kind of trouble, you go out on a limb to offer support, you tell him you'll go to the mat for him - and then, after you've invested your prestige in defending him, he goes out in public and claims that he's being bombarded by radiation and poison gas, and that Israeli mercenaries are trying to assassinate him. So, do you cut him off or double down? If you're Barack Obama, you dig in, continue to publicly support your pal, and maybe secretly hope the poison gas relieves you of the friend who has become an embarrassing political liability.
Help! I'm Mel Zelaya and I'm being zapped with deadly Jew rays!!!
