• Daily Surge Poll: Which of These Two Obama Officials Is Paying Less Attention to Iraq Right Now?

    Hold on to your hats, folks! This may come as a complete shocker, but it appears that Secretary of State John Kerry and Vice President Joe Biden would rather be doing just about ANYTHING right now than to have to deal with the absolute disintegration of Iraq. Both of these Obama team members have demonstrated a rather bizarre sense of timing and prioritization this week, as they’ve each allowed themselves to be filmed not doing their jobs. Now it’s your turn to vote on which one of these champs is more tone-deaf.

    First up, John Kerry. What has he been up to? Well, the Secretary of Ketchup has spent the past two days addressing the environmental concerns of the world’s oceans at a rather talky summit. After proclaiming on the first day that he would like to see at least ten percent of the world’s oceans declared “off-limits” to human activity, John Kerry spent much of Tuesday with Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio. I’d imagine somewhere Al Gore is going through a jealous rage over the newfound bromance. Take a look:

    I know, I know. You can’t write this stuff. But the truth is always stranger than fiction when we’re dealing with the Obama administration. And that brings us to the other nominee in our poll: Joe Biden! Rather than waste his precious time discussing whether dividing Iraq into three parts is finally viable, Joey was busy hanging chilly in the locker room after the U.S. soccer team’s victory over Ghana in the World Cup. Asked by one player how he’s doing these days, Uncle Joe proclaimed, “Things are great! Better today!” He was so pumped, you’d never know anything was wrong in world affairs. See Plugs Man in action here:

    So there you have it. We’ve limited our informal poll to only two choices, so as to make it easier on you to pick one…and also so you need not suffer through any more painful footage of administration officials getting paid to schmooze while the world burns (believe me, there’s more out there).

    Use the comments section below to lock in your choice. Remember, you’re voting for the guy whom you think gives LESS of a crap about Iraq right now than the other.
