My Sentiments Exactly

But expressed ever so much more poetically.

Ann Coulter is not applauding President Obama for the killing of Moammar Gadhafi.

…“I thought our intervention in Libya — I mean, there’s good feeling because he’s a bad guy so maybe I should wait two weeks to say this, but I thought it was kind of stupid because once we invaded Iraq, Gadhafi became George Bush’s bitch…”

“…Why are we invading now? And it’s not clear to me, seeing that mob around him that shoots him within five minutes, that what he is being replaced with is going to be better.”

Got Me A New Scimitar

I needed a new chef’s knife, as there are some things that I just didn’t like using the Wusthof Santoku for.

Or maybe I just like sharp knives.

“…”This Doesn’t Feel Right,” One of Them Said.”

“We did not feel comfortable with firing upon the personnel and were still unsure if these were friendlies or not,” another told investigators.

…Six minutes before the Predator pilot fired the missile, the analysts sent a private message to the drone’s mission intelligence coordinator at March Air Reserve Base in California, reasserting their assessment that the direction of fire was away from friendly forces: “pers are shooting W and the convoy is to the E”

The coordinator, a trainee who was not qualified for combat missions, never passed that information to the pilot in Nevada or the Marines on the ground in Afghanistan.

The Hellfire, coincidentally, was headed into Marines on the ground.

It killed two men in Skyler’s battalion.

He’s allowed only to say what fine young men SSgt Jeremy Smith and Corpsman Benjamin Rast were.

And mourn them.

Never Forget

And what a wonderful, magnificent way to ensure they’re never forgotten.

Eighteen Air Force air commandos began an 800-mile march last week to honor three comrades killed in Afghanistan.

The airmen departed from Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, on Oct. 16 carrying 50-pound rucksacks and a baton inscribed with the names of three airmen: Tech. Sgt. John Brown, Tech. Sgt. Daniel Zerbe and Staff Sgt. Andy Harvell, who were killed Aug. 6 when their CH-47 Chinook was shot down during a special operations mission in Afghanistan.

The group plans to finish the march Wednesday at Hurlburt Field. They will cover 812 miles, winding through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

When I emailed Ebola the story, he sent back an AirForce video he’d found of some company the SpecOps guys had had along the way.

Don’t you just want to eat them all up?

Honor. Duty. Country.

God bless them, every one.

About That Steve Jobs Bio “60 Minutes” Last Night

Is anyone else kinda pissed they basically wasted a perfectly good liver transplant on a dead man walking?

I mean, it’s nice to be so special, and an “icon” and all, but when YOU make a choice to eschew the conventional medical treatment which pretty much would have guaranteed your survival, then I don’t think you get to take that life-saving organ away from ~ perhaps CONDEMN TO DEATH ~ the next guy in line just to extend the consequences of your tres questionable judgement, capiche?

Oh, I know I’m harsher than a witch’s broom riding butt, but that burned my ASS last night. Big time.

Here’s A Shocker

We spent a billion dollars…to make Libya safe for Sharia

Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the chairman of the National Transitional Council and de fact president, had already declared that Libyan laws in future would have Sharia, the Islamic code, as its “basic source”.

But that formulation can be interpreted in many ways – it was also the basis of Egypt’s largely secular constitution under President Hosni Mubarak, and remains so after his fall.

Mr Abdul-Jalil went further, specifically lifting immediately, by decree, one law from Col. Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia – that banning polygamy.

Smart Power.

Now with added Polygamy!

Gov. Bobby Jindal easily coasted to a second term, winning in a landslide election Saturday after failing to attract any well-known or well-funded opposition to oust the popular Republican from office. Jindal overwhelmed a field of nine competitors in the open primary. He had nearly 69 percent of the vote with one-third of Louisiana’s precincts reporting.

Who am I to correct how he tells the puppies good news?

I Won’t Be Shedding Any Tears That All Three Spelling Versions of Murderous Muammar Gaddafi

…seem to have met their end at last. May he roast on a spit that he has to carve himself.

What I am appalled by is an American President who can tout “American Leadership” in a statement patting himself on the back for what was basically the assassination cream-on-top of a patently illegal operation to begin with. Leadership would have BEEN calling out to Iranians on rooftops desperate for encouragement.

Obama couldn’t lead himself to the men’s room.

So, is that what our proud military’s for? To flush out the easy-target dirtbag of choice, who can then (eventually) can be pulled out of a pipe by a random hodgepodge of “Freedom Fighters”, beaten to a pulp and summarily executed there on the shoulder of the highway, all the while we can claim no boots on the ground and no blood on lily white hands?

Wootwoot, and all in an embarrassing, expensive, agonizingly long 157 days (not weeks)?

How revolting.

Where’s President Big Leader’s big plan for the aftermath? Who’s in charge? Which scurvy group of Freedom Fighters/rebels/scruffy nerfherders IS the administration talking to, since every town is taking credit for fighting the hardest and every faction is already jockeying for positions in power?

Where is Obama going to be when missles that Gaddafi kept corralled appear alongside an American airliner IN THE SKY, or some of the as yet undiscovered (and now, maybe never-to-be-accounted-for) chemical stockpiles vanish and wind up in hands itching to use them against us? Will he be in the Rose Garden for that announcement?

Gaddafi richly deserved to die a gruesome death a long time ago, but the fact remains that Obama went into this on the flimsiest of justifications and should be ashamed, if he had any capacity for that particular emotion. (As if.) The precedent this has set ~ that the United States can arbitrarily pick and choose another country’s leader, however reviled the individual ~ and use force to hound him from office, to his death at the hands of RABBLE, not even some faux JUSTICE…is a disgusting thought. If WE wanted Gaddafi, then don’t hide behind “protecting” third century goatherders.

We HAD our chance and chose NOT to do it THEN. You don’t get do-over regime change twenty years later, because a buddy G7 country is worried about uninterrupted access to CHEAP OIL.

And really. That’s all this was about.

It could easily turn into a snake pit that could bite us in the ass.

What has Obama touched that has been golden afterward?
UPDATE: Class act, all around.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared a laugh with a television news reporter moments after hearing deposed Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi had been killed.

We came, we saw, he died,” she joked when told of news reports of Qaddafi’s death by an aide in between formal interviews.

Ha ha la dee loser da.

I am beyond disgust with the lot of them. “American Leadership”, my ass.

This is For All the Kittehs in Ohio Yesterday, Who Never Stood a Chance

Mooch, the kitteh from Mutts, always rapturously says, “My little pink sock! Little pink sock!” I think we could change that to “My little pizza box! Little pizza box!” for his bigger cousins…

This Is Criminal

I’m sure DOJ will get right on it.

Someone affiliated with the Department of Energy has been going back to make changes to press releases posted on the Internet weeks and months ago, CNBC has found.

The changes occurred in two press releases from the Department of Energy’s loan guarantee program — the same program that has been the center of controversy surrounding the failed solar company Solyndra.

Both were changed to remove the name of a company that has received negative press attention in recent days, SunPower, and replace it with the name of another company, NRG Energy.

…Update: On Wednesday evening, a Department of Energy spokesman said that the press releases had been returned to their original content as a result of CNBC’s inquiry about the changes.

This needs to be investigated and whomever was doing this needs to be fired at the very least.

Total chaos. And I don’t see police; I see red-flag waving folks fighting others.

Gadhafi Captured?

Supposedly he was found inside a lion costume in Ohio…

Update: You think I kid?

(Reuters) – Former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi died of wounds suffered in his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, a senior NTC military official said.

Signs Of Hope

I have to say that after a day of heavy, wind-driven cold rain the hordes of police in the Wall Street area were in a much better mood this morning than they’ve been on previous mornings. But the surest sign of hope I saw was a cop walking down Broadway carrying a case of donuts…

“Look for me with on the Dawn of the Third Day…I’ll have the Boston Cremes…”

Cold And Rainy

Heavy heavy downpour in Manhattan at 5:30 this morning.

Oh, and did I mention the rain is ice cold?

I feel like I just walked through a car wash, minus the suds.

Tweet of the Day

You know some fools stole TOTUS, right? They’re FOOLS because they couldn’t do us all a favor and either KEEP the damn thing, or DUMP IT IN THE RIVER. Instead, apparently they freaked when they realized what the score IN the truck was and…

…They [“sources”] topld NBC12 around 12:30 Monday afternoon that truck was recovered in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn Express near the airport and hotel staff confirm police activity. One guest we spoke with said he saw various law enforcement agencies examining a white box truck parked there.

…hence, our “TotD” from FoxNewsRadio reorter Todd Starnes (a helluva guy you should follow):


Cops find stolen TOTUS at Holiday Inn. TOTUS replied: “I may not be POTUS, but I slept at a Holiday Inn Express last night.”

Just brilliant.

At Last!

“The Republicans plan, Obama says, boils down to this: ‘Dirtier air, dirtier water, less people with health insurance.'”

“Fewer”, Mr. President.

Here’s a simple sentence to help you remember:

Since you’ve been President we have less hope for the future and fewer dollars for the present.

President Obama Says ‘Maybe Congress Couldn’t Understand the Whole Jobs Bill at Once’

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – On the tarmac of an airport badly in need of repair, President Obama this morning launched his second bus tour since August, formally announcing that his jobs bill would be broken up into parts and taking an even more combative tone with Congress.

Maybe they couldn’t understand the whole thing at once,” the president said to laughter.

“We’re going to break it up into bite-sized pieces, so they –they can take a thoughtful approach…We’re going to give members of Congress another chance to step up to the plate and do the right thing.”

I swear. If you look up “douche” in the M-W, it’s got his happy little jug-eared mug right next to the definition.
