Operation Ballsack: 'Just Muscular Enough Not To Get Mocked'

Let the mockery begin!

And by virtue of actually stating this, the designated administration leaker ensured exactly the opposite. Well, let the mockery begin! Surely insecurity about the size of your manly bits is an ongoing theme in politics, and if some human beings happen to get in the way while you're showing your, uh, muscle, well, it's their own damned fault for getting in the way of your bombs! From The Hill:

A U.S. official briefed on the military options being considered by President Obama told the Los Angeles Times that the White House is seeking a strike on Syria "just muscular enough not to get mocked."

"They are looking at what is just enough to mean something, just enough to be more than symbolic," the official told the paper, giving credence to similar reports describing a limited military strike in the aftermath of last week's alleged chemical weapons attack.

NBC News reported earlier this week that the administration would launch three days of missile strikes, while CNN cited a senior administration official saying that the White House wanted to conclude any action before the president departs for the G-20 summit next week.
