Nuke the Punchline: Hagel Hearing

Harvey over at IMAO has another straight line of the day up, and so it is time to pick the winners of the last one:

The most awkward moment at Chuck Hagel’s Defense Secretary confirmation hearing…

#5 Apostic: ...was when he finally noticed he wasn’t wearing pants.

#4 Mrs. Campbell: ...will be when the senate confirms him anyway.

#3 Oppo: ...was when he said he loves to see women in combat positions, and winked.

#2 Bob in Feenicks: ...when faced with a question he couldn’t answer, responded, “What do you mean, African or European?”

And the best punchline goes to CTCompromise:

The most awkward moment at Chuck Hagel's Defense Secretary confirmation hearing was when Hagel thought the Joint Chiefs of Staff referred to drug cartels. 

Congratulations CTC!


The best punchline for the last Nuking Politics straight line was from FredKey:  

To stop people from Photo Shopping pictures, Obama...declared the U.S. a "Photoshop-Free Zone."

Congratulations FredKey!


Now here's a line for you guys to play with:

Now that the Obama administration has declared drone strikes on Americans legal...


  1. ...remember to surrender your token offerings of earth and water immediately upon request.

  2. ...being an un-American lefty has another fringe benefit, not being dead.

  3. he'll allow strikes with the same frequency he shoots skeet.

  4. They have been added to the obamacare penalties.

  5. They have been added to the obamacare penalties.

  6. ... we should desperately hope that he doesn't let Biden get the controls for the drone strikes confused with his X-box controls

  7. ... PLEASE no one complain about him 'droning' on and on during his speeches.

  8. ...Biden said he thinks it's great that American drones finally have the right to unionize and collectively bargain.
