Oh, hush your mouth. The rest of us are having a great time.


They are going to rename the campaign to ..

"There Will Be Blood"

'You're too old. You can't see. And you're a woman.…But maybe the dogs would take you.'

Does that mean that he thought she was an old blind ..

it rhymes will witch.


This tale "may" not be a lie. I can very well imagine Hillary going to see a recruiter so that she could go back & report to her pals about the sexist treatment she had received (or some such thing). In other words, she went with a political agenda and not any intent to join the military.


When Hill tried to join the army they shot at her - which she confused with her trip to Bosnia. It all makes sense now.


LOL Hil will again say anything albeit deceitfully if she perceives it will stenghthen her military credentials and her claim to be ready to be CIC On DAY ONE!
What a fraud and phony she is. She who would not allow the military to wear their uniforms. Why isn't anyone remembering that little meme.


She may have a Stallone fixation - first with Rambo and now Rocky. Stallone's next film in said to be a remake of Death Wish, which may give Bill Richardson pause.


As a veteran with a hitch of recruiting under my belt, I think I can speak for all veteran's today, when I offer sincere thanks to whatever enlisted Recruiter it was out there who supposedly told her to get lost. My aim as a recruiter was never to put anybody in the service that I wouldn't personally want to serve with in a squadron. If anybody can track down her supposed recruiter I'd sure like to buy him a beer 'cause he did us all a favor.

HRC probably had a dream that she was a warrior, woke up at 3 am to take a call from Eleanor Roosevelt urging HRC to enlist, and immediately sprinted off to the recruitment office (avoiding early morning sniper fire). After a long wait for the recruitment office to open, HRC introduced herself to the recruitment officer and said she was ready to help take villages. The officer suggested that she consider a career in commodities trading instead.


Well, let's review what we know of the record. She failed the D.C. bar exam. She was fired from the Watergate Committee by Zeifman who refused to give her a recommendation..Maybe this was her version of joining the French Foreign Legion.

Friend to Chelsea,

Yo mamma does NOT wear combat boots.

Who knew insults would come this far?

What's most interesting is that at this point no one has any idea whatsoever whether the story is true, close to true, or entirely fictional. From now on everything she says that cannot be indisputably verified will be received the same way. And that's a very healthy thing.


Did you all read this morning about Pelosi's threat to Gen. Petraeus?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) warned Army Gen. David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker on Thursday “not to put a shine on recent events” in Iraq when they testify before Congress next week.

“I hope we don’t hear any glorification of what happened in Basra,” said Pelosi, referring to a recent military offensive against Shiite militants in the city led by the Iraqi government and supported by U.S. forces.


“We have to know the real ground truths of what is happening there, not put a shine on events because of a resolution that looks less violent when in fact it has been dictated by al-Sadr, who can grant or withhold that call for violence,” Pelosi said.

Petraeus, the top military commander in Iraq, and Crocker, the U.S. ambassador, will make their return to Capitol Hill on April 8 and 9 to deliver their assessment of the situation on the ground in Iraq.

Here's an excerpt from an item published at RCP, taken from the Boston Phoenix. The writer seems to be at least mildly a Hillary supporter, all in all. But check this:

"But a larger factor is that Clinton is being held to a different standard than virtually any other candidate in history. That's being driven by Clinton fatigue, but it's also being driven by a concerted campaign that examines every action the Clintons take and somehow finds the basest, most self-serving motivation for its existence. Thus, in this case, when Clinton is simply doing what everyone else has always done, she's constantly attacked as an obsessed and crazed egomaniac, bent on self-aggrandizement at the expense of her party."

The fellow seems to think that Clinton fatigue is one thing, and the tendency to suspect "base, self-serving" motives is something else altogether. Does it not occur to him that it's all one ball of wax? How many times does he expect people to get burned by this duplicitous pair before they are entitled to harbor deep suspicions about them?


Pelosi needs another eyelift to shore up that massive brain trust of hers. She is such a tool.

Also at RCP you can find McCain's fourth "bio" ad. Maybe it's a bit over the top; I dunno. But if you really want to enjoy it, just think "John Kerry" all the way through it. (I suspect that Kerry will not enjoy watching it.)

McCain: "Sacrifice"

I like it.

I like it.

Me too. Especially the ending, though I wonder if it's too long for most media.



Thought this would make PUK day, Gordy gets an thumping in the Economist:

British politics are at a critical juncture. The period of Labour hegemony that began in 1997 is coming to an end. Despite a change of prime minister and an influx of younger ministers to the cabinet in 2007, the government is looking increasingly tired—and voters are tiring of it. The governing party has been trailing in opinion polls since October 2007. However, the opposition Conservative Party does not yet look like a natural government in waiting. With the UK's third party, the Liberal Democrats, making modest headway under a new leader, the next general election, which must be held by 2010, could well produce an electoral stalemate in which neither of the two largest parties wins enough seats to form a government on its own. If this scenario is to be avoided, the Labour Party must engineer a dramatic reversal of its fortunes, or the Conservative Party must make electoral inroads into those parts of the country from which it was largely wiped out in 1997.


One of the most implausible parts of that story, besides everything; was the idea that
someone was going to volunteer for the Marines right after what had been considered
a devastating defeat. Now Randi Rhodes, according to one local profile, did sign up for the Air Force; and then was upset she wasn't deployed abroad; specially considering the fact she probably had protested the military: up until that time.. Cognitive dissonance is not a strong enough word for this situation.


Remember Goldie Hawn in that movie Private Benjamin...
...There must be some mistake. I wanted to go to the Army that had the condo's on the beach...that other army, the one my recruiter told me about...
Well maybe that was the one Randi Rhodes was thinking of. Hey, she saw it in a movie so it must be true, right?

Didn't we hear this story several years ago? Or am I thinking of Florence King's brush with the Marine Corps in Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady. Wasn't she supposed to undermine the military from within?
