“And when he tried to steal our sunlight, he crossed that line between everyday villainy and cartoonish super-villainy.” – Mr. Smithers
“Bah!  He was a rank amateur compared to Dr. Colossus!” – Dr. Colossus

Romney Rips and Trips

The actual story does manage to omit the fact that the statement from the embassy in Cairo took place before the attack . . .

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo at first issued a statement saying, in part, that it condemns "the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."
