Senator Clinton and the "Tonya Harding Option" and Mo Dowd Has a Moment

Ze Option which is a funny way of speaking of it.

From the NYT and their mostly worthless columnist Maureen Dowd.

It’s impossible to imagine The Terminator, as a former aide calls her, giving up. Unless every circuit is out, she’ll regenerate enough to claw her way out of the grave, crawl through the Rezko Memorial Lawn and up Obama’s wall, hurl her torso into the house and brutally haunt his dreams.

Dats some funny stuff.

Hillary Clinton's lie hits real sniper vics

Sunday, March 30th 2008, 4:00 AM

Every time I see the video of Hillary Clinton talking about landing in Bosnia under sniper fire, I also see the shamrock scarf she wore to the podium in honor of St. Patrick's Day.

And then I think once again of the courageous 30-year-old Marine Capt. John McKenna of Brooklyn, born on St. Patrick's Day in 1976 and killed two years ago by a sniper in Iraq.

The same sniper had just shot another New York Marine, 28-year-old Lance Cpl. Michael Glover of Queens. Glover had been the point man in a patrol down a street in Fallujah. He had just reached an intersection when he was hit.

The citation for the Silver Star subsequently awarded to the 30-year-old McKenna reports: "Ignoring the imminent peril from the heavy incoming fire, Captain McKenna ran into the intersection in an effort to save his downed Marine. Completely exposed to the enemy fire, he calmly knelt next to the stricken Marine to assess his condition. As he began to drag the Marine to a covered position, Captain McKenna was hit by enemy fire and mortally wounded."

The citation goes on, "Captain McKenna gallantly gave his life in an attempt to save one of his Marines. His actions inspired his men to drive the enemy from the battlefield, and served as a true example of the selfless bravery to which all Marine leaders aspire."

Glover was an equally fine and dedicated Marine. He joined up after 9/11, telling his family, "I feel I have to do something." His uncle, retired Fire Chief Peter Hayden, commanded the rescue effort in the north tower on 9/11. Hayden presented his nephew with a small cross made from the steel of the World Trade Center. Glover was wearing it around his neck when he was killed.

An excerpt from one of his letters from Iraq was read at his funeral at St. Francis de Sales Church in Belle Harbor, Queens. He had written, "I took an oath - and it's the best oath I ever took. I'm at peace if I come back with parts of me missing. And I'm at peace if I don't come back at all."

The funeral for McKenna was held at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Kensington, Brooklyn. He had previously served in Afghanistan and had been doing a second tour in Iraq.

"He was proud of what he did and we were very proud of him," said his uncle, retired NYPD Lt. Robert McKenna.

I kept a holy card from McKenna's wake. The photo showed a red-haired, clear-eyed young man in the state trooper's uniform he wore before he returned to active duty with the Marines. The birth date jumped up at me: March 17, 1976.

And I thought right away of this Irish Marine born on St. Patrick's Day when I saw the news clips of Hillary Clinton at a podium bearing a sign reading, "Ready To Bring The Troops Home" and wearing a shamrock scarf as she spoke about being under sniper fire in Bosnia.

When I looked at the whole speech she delivered at George Washington University, I saw that she went directly from the Bosnia fantasy to the current situation in Iraq. She actually said, "The American people don't have to guess whether I'm ready to lead or whether I understand the realities on the ground."

In Bosnia, the reality was Clinton was greeted in total safety by an 8-year-old Muslim girl who read her a poem. The reality is the self-styled champion of children erased that moment in favor of a self-glorifying tale of being under fire.

In Iraq, the sniper fire is all too real, as the families of McKenna and Glover can attest. I note that the citation for McKenna's Silver Star begins in the way of all such citations, "The President of the United States takes pride in presenting ..."

Which means that when you vote for President you will, among other things, be voting for the next person in whose name we honor our bravest and best.

Our recent commanders in chief too seldom demonstrated the courage of a John McKenna or the selfless devotion of a Michael Glover. The last two Presidents assumed office having gone to great lengths to avoid being sent into combat.

But even George W. Bush and Bill Clinton never lied about being under fire.

Cougar Spotted in North Chicago

From NBC 5.

Definition of "Cougar" from Urban Dictionary.

Now the question is what kinda "cougar" do they speak of?

An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister, to a real hottie or milf. Cougars are gaining in popularity -- particularly the true hotties -- as young men find not only a sexual high, but many times a chick with her shit together.

A 35+ year old female who is on the "hunt" for a much younger, energetic, willing-to-do-anything male. The cougar can frequently be seen in a padded bra, cleavage exposed, propped up against a swanky bar in San Francisco (or other cities)waiting, watching, calculating; gearing up to sink her claws into an innocent young and strapping buck who happens to cross her path. "Man is cougar's number one prey"

No toons today but here is some Peggy Noonan

Read the whole thing and chuckle and guffaw.

What struck me as the best commentary on the Bosnia story came from a poster called GI Joe who wrote in to a news blog: "Actually Mrs. Clinton was too modest. I was there and saw it all. When Mrs. Clinton got off the plane the tarmac came under mortar and machine gun fire. I was blown off my tank and exposed to enemy fire. Mrs. Clinton without regard to her own safety dragged me to safety, jumped on the tank and opened fire, killing 50 of the enemy." Soon a suicide bomber appeared, but Mrs. Clinton stopped the guards from opening fire. "She talked to the man in his own language and got him [to] surrender. She found that he had suffered terribly as a result of policies of George Bush. She defused the bomb vest herself." Then she turned to his wounds. "She stopped my bleeding and saved my life. Chelsea donated the blood."

Made me laugh. It was like the voice of the people answering back. This guy knows that what Mrs. Clinton said is sort of crazy. He seems to know her reputation for untruths. He seemed to be saying, "I get it."

I kinda liked the old fooker. He seemed to be genuine. Which is more than I can say for most candidates.

Here's what I consider to be his best video.

I love Hillary. Really I do. SHIT

Two videos that express my deep love for her.

3 Toons, 2 Wars

Today I will limit this only to 5 year Iraq War Anniversary toons.

There are times when war is necessary. Those times should only be after every other reasonable and sometimes unreasonable option has been exhausted. The Iraq War does not fit that rule.

It's not our country. If they want to kill one another it is horrible. Ultimately it is their business.

Whether we get out in two years or ten, and we will get out, a bloodbath will likely ensue and the end result is not likely to be good for us or for them.

HuckabeeaChristian on da Obama Speech

Again found this at the site of one Andrew Sullivan. Linked somewhere on this page. Find it yourself.

The Huckster says some nice stuff and methinks true stuff.

Still hope McCain doesn't pick his formerly fat Arkansas ass as VP.

Black Minister Talks about White Titties and Obama

Found this at Andrew Sullivan.

This minister is a real asshole. Besides having his facts wrong, he is just an asshole. Did I mention he is an asshole. An amusing asshole.
