You have no idea where those 13 year old El Salvadorian girls came from. Just put your hands up like this, shut up, insist on your one phone call, and call the nearest ACORN office. The stupid police have to give you one phone call.
Ok, can you remember all that young man?

Well Mark, it is a rainy night in Georgia... and has been for the past week. Which sorta limits my options to execute on the honey-do list. So it's either snark away on a caption contest, read a book or...
Oh look! It's beer thirty!

Posted by: Mark at September 19, 2009 06:02 PM
I have been lamely snarking along, in between cutting out clothes for the CLUs and Young Man.
I have a pair of socks on the needles, a vest to finish knitting the ribbing for, and Bush to blame for it. I'm swamped.

Yes, I tend to watch 'The Princess Bride' when I get swamped with alligators. 'Chicken Run' is another favorite. My favorite is Babs. The penultimate knitting airhead.

You are too kind. Especially when you do a "Princess Bride" that is nothing short of inspired! We are not worthy.

Posted by: Jeff at September 20, 2009 04:03 PM
Well I'll tell ya Kbob, being an old fashioned, knuckle-dragging, bib overhaul wearing, Neanderthal rube, I'm loath to comment on fashion, especially ladies fashion. But apparently dignified, formal wear, appropriate for an occasion such as a posthumous Medal of Honor award ceremony, ain't what it used to be.
Or maybe the ACORN fashion advisor's to independent, small business, relocation agents for El Salvador's deprived, female minors have the first lady's ear.
But what does it matter if there is an expectation of dignity towards the folks attending the ceremony. Hey, if M.O. wants to be stylish, --BTW, is that stylish?-- I'm sure PRAVDA will gush in support of her solemn, yet up beat and avant-garde statement or something...
Yup, POTUS #39 is climbing out of that bottom of the basement ranking, one miserable incident at a time.

bt, mon frere, in no time, teh won has catapaulted the racist, anti-semite peanut farmer who would be president from the bottom of the barrel to a step up.
Having served under Mr Peanut, I am sure you recall the days we sat in port because we did not have enough fuel for steaming time, and how some ships at NOB would have to pick up "loaners" to crew vessels to get underway.
Now I am seeing it from the Army side of the house, with emphasis on height and weight, PT and admin issues (such as required IT security training). In my unit we have 42 people. We have 17 M-16A1's, and TA50 (helmets and web gear mostly) for 20. We have no M9 pistols, no IBA, and are pretty restricted on ammo for qualification.
It was easier being enlisted and bitching about it. Now I get to listen to it and find a creative way to get around it. I was thinking about civilian ranges and govt credit card for ammo, but that might be stretching it.
Soon we will be like the Army of the 1930s during the Lousiana Manouvers. People walking around with broomsticks going "bang bang."

Now I am seeing it from the Army side of the house...
The military's fiscal year begins on 1 October.
During the last two years of the Cottuh debacle, all Army aircraft were grounded during August and September, because there was no money to buy parts to fix the ones that broke between January and October, and there was no money to buy fuel for the remainder after mid-July.
We used to joke -- rather morbidly -- that if the Soviets had ever rolled through the Fulda Gap on a Labor Day weekend, the only thing they'd need to get to the English Channel would be shoes...

Cyrano de Barrybarack: Very well, let the old neo-cons come now. They shall find me on my feet sword in hand.
Michelle: Barry! Cut it out. Your scaring the old white dude in the suit!
Old White Dude in the Suit (thinking): Holy crap! Am I in this picture?
Cyrano de Barrybarack: I can see them now - they grin. They are looking at my nose for spending, my health reform plan nose, that skeleton of my electoral mandate nose. You there - who are you? A hundred against one, eh? I know them now, my ancient enemies...
Micelle: Barry! For God's sake. You've almost got a filibuster-proof majority, so stop waving that damn thing in Oylympia Snow's's face!
[Cyrano thrusts his sword at the empty air]: Falsehood! There! There! Prejudice! Compromise! Bi-partisanship! Cowardice! Whats that? Surrender? No! Never! Never![He slashes his sword wildly on every friendly media outlet.]
Chubby Kid (thinking): Oh man, I bet he's gonna use up all the batteries in my light saber again.
Guy with Finger in His Nose: I don't know. Mr. President, maybe we should think about dropping the 'public option' piece.
Cyrano: Ah, you too, Blue Dog Democrats? I knew you would overthrow me in the end. No! I would die at the stake rather than change a semi-colon!
I fight on! I fight on! I fight on!
Michelle: Whatever, Barry. Come on, girls. We're going shopping before the credit card tops out.
