Second look at Palin

They say that executives are known by the people they hire.

Palin made McCain look brilliant.

Four years McCain and then 8 of Palin.

More later.

I'm busy trying to find one of those balls she knocked out of the park.

Liddy declares he is voting Democratic

From his webpage we have the reasons..

I'm voting Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

I’m voting Democrat because the party of “tolerance” accepts me completely, unless, of course, I disagree with them.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

I’m voting Democrat because I won’t have to do any research on anything. I just listen to what they say and believe it-because they’re all about “protecting the little guy” that’s me, right?

I'm voting Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now think we're good people.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if it will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe three or four pointy headed elitist liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that when the terrorists don't have to hide from us over there, they'll come over here, and I don't want to have any guns in the house to shoot them with.

(I'm so Democrat that I have a big sign on the door of my house: There are no guns in this home! That, I am quite sure, will deter criminals. I think all Democrats should be required to display this sign on their home.)

I'm voting Democrat because while I believe the government knows what's better for me financially, they stay out of my personal life and don't tell me what I can and cannot do with my body and the baby I feel kicking inside me has no rights to anything, especially no right to live if I don't want it.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not concerned about the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my DOG.

I really wonder why anyone would ever vote Republican.


Update: It dawned on me that some of my readers from outside the US may not know who G. Gordon Liddy is... Link

More military humor

The following came from Mike L. Thanks Mike!

I have commented before that military humor is almost alwaays black humor, laughter designed to hide the uncertainity, grins to keep the concern from showing... the following does that... again. I would only add one thing for the Marines in the audience.... Look up and you'll see USN on that aircraft you called to provide ground support!


Marine Corps Rules:
1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a '4.'
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral &diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

US Army Rules:
1. Curse bitterly when receiving operational order.
2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
3. Curse bitterly.
4. Curse bitterly.

2. Adjust temperature on air-conditioner.
3. See what's on HBO.
4. Ask 'What is a gunfight?'

O'Reilly dives in the tank for Hussein

O'Reilly spends a great deal of time claiming to be fair and balanced. When he's not doing that he is busy condemning MSNBC and NBC and other members of the MSM. And over the past two months he has been busy challenging Hussein to come on his show.

Well, Hussein has agreed. He will come on Thursday night. The night that McCain accepts the nomination and makes his case to millions of viewers.

I assume that Hussein will come on at 7PM Central, O'Reilly's usual time and before McCain's speech. That O'Reilly is letting Hussein use the RNC's convention at all is terrible. But if McCain allows Hussein to come on after McCain's speech that will be totally outrageous.

I'll wait and see. As of now I think O'Reilly is having coffee with Chris Mathews.
