Obviously

“Obviously,” Peter King told the press, “I hit a sensitive nerve”:

Rep. Peter King begs to differ with White House press secretary Jay Carney’s jab that it’s “ridiculous” for the congressman to suggest the Obama administration could be endangering national security by cooperating with filmmakers working on a movie about Osama bin Laden.

“Obviously, I hit a sensitive nerve,” the House Homeland Security Committee chairman told POLITICO on Thursday morning. “What he said was nonsense — there has been so much classified information released over the last 90 days” since bin Laden was killed in a raid on his Pakistan compound.

Four thoughts:

  1. Obviously, if either Carney or Katherine Bigelow, the film’s director, had said anything that might suggest access to classified information WAS given, King would have said, “Obviously, I was right.”
  2. Obviously, a firm denial must be an admission of guilt, since obviously they would never admit to leaking or using classified information.
  3. Obviously, when King says, “What he said was nonsense — there has been so much classified information released over the last 90 days” about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, we can take that as gold standard fact, and don’t need to point out that King provides not one shred of evidence for this claim, thus making it clear that he is speaking from a position deep within his own ass,
  4. Obviously, when this individual talks about “scouring the bowels of the Internet,” he knows what he is talking about.
