Andrew Malcolm, the Andy Rooney of the internet, can always be relied upon for one incisive observation or another. So you can just bet that nobody read President Obama's Afghanistan speech as hard as Andrew Malcolm read it…
President Obama spoke 4,582 words in his prime-time Afghanistan war speech at West Point last night.
He said "Al Qaeda" 22 times.
He mentioned the "Taliban" 12 times.
And here's how many times the Democratic chief executive used the word "victory" — 0.
Also, additionally, furthermore, here is how many times the Democratic chief executive used the word "pizza" — 0.
Do the math, SHEEPLE, and do it fast before HUSSEIN OBAMA obstructs numbers by not saying them in speeches either.

Here is the picture that has the blogosphere all a-twitter: it's President Obama bowing as he greets Japan's Emperor Akihito, a known foreigner, during this week's tour of Asia (a known foreign place).
Andrew Malcolm banged out 750+ words on BowGate, covering the history of the Japanese royal family, World War II, MacArthur, and so forth, but he probably could've just left it at this…
How low will the new American president go for the world's royalty?
Very, very low, according to the outraged outragers at Power Line…
He means to teach Americans to bow before monarchs and tyrants. He embodies the ideological multiculturalism that sets the United States on the same plane as other regimes based on tribal privilege and royal bloodlines. He gives expressive form to the idea that the United States now willingly prostrates itself before the rest of the world. He declares that the United States is a country like any other, only worse, because we have so much for which to apologize.
Jesus Christ, and he does all this using only his waist and torso. Can you even imagine how much treason Barack Obama would be capable of committing if he used his legs and feet, too?

Meanwhile, over at the Los Angeles Times, Andrew Malcolm has decided to own a story that's being overlooked (suppressed??) elsewhere: just what the hell is Joe Biden doing, aside from skulking around Delaware, a popular undisclosed location?
We said after taking the entire weekend off, he was spending all day Monday in "private meetings" at his Delaware home. He was. And we all know what that means.
Of course, it means he was sitting in his basement watching porns. Well, at least Biden's good for ceremonial oath-giving, when the White House butler is otherwise occupied…
[T]wo more swearing-ins popped up on Biden's schedule for Tuesday — one for Gary Gensler, chairman of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, and another for Fred Hochberg, chairman of the Export-Import Bank.
Ha, right, "export-import," sure. Wink wink. Good one, "Joe Biden."
Also on Biden's Tuesday docket is sitting in on three presidential meetings, a couple of briefings and a lunch. But these too have been declared closed to the media. So we'll all just have to imagine the intense VP work going on.
According to the White House, the remainder of the vice president's day will be devoted to some more of those "private meetings."
That is just disgusting.
