A Bit Of Reflecting

Do you realize that next month, this blog will be celebrating its 4th anniversary?

It appears that old adage is true, time does indeed fly, when you're having fun. Everyone that reads this blog knows that, despite efforts to keep certain aspects of my private life private, the effort was lost on October 30, 2007. The past few months, of my life, have been a Lifetime movie in the making. See, I knew I'd find another way to link that damn generator.

I just want to say thanks to everyone for being there and sticking with me, through some very shaky times. We all bicker and fight but when one of us is in trouble, everyone here forgets the insults and political differences and remembers why we play together. Friendship.

Despite the belief, of some, that you can't bond with people you've never met face to face, I'm writing this now to say you can. You absolutely can. I've had wonderful, supportive email exchanges with so many of you. Some offered advice, some just a virtual shoulder to lean on or cry on. I've had some of my strongest support from someone I never, ever expected and that's why she's not banned anymore. ;-)

I don't want to start naming everyone who supported me because I'll surely forget someone. I don't want anyone to think that I don't value their friendship because I do. Words cannot express how much I value the friendships I've gained, since I began blogging, 6 years ago. I will, though, name two people because these two people, whom I have never met face to face, went above and beyond the call of duty when it came to support.

The first one is Mark Adams. Mark has proven ten-fold that he's a not only great counselor but an even better friend. Mark gave me invaluable advice, he shared years of wisdom and he boosted me up when I was near collapsed with fear. He even started a support group on Facebook. I'll never be able to thank him enough for all of his support. I just want him to know that I think he rocks and his lovely wife is indeed a lucky woman.

The other person is, of course, Tim the Soldier. I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I was going to say Tim. Tim and I have been bickering with each other since 2002. He has truly become one of my best friends, and the fact that we've never met, doesn't matter at all. He worked overtime to get me through a very difficult period. We spent hours on the phone, he blogged when I was unable, he defended me when I couldn't defend myself and he truly yanked me out of the darkest period of my life. I can honestly say that, if, it weren't for his friendship and support, I'm not sure where I'd be right now.

Where I am is good. I'm happy, I've regained my spunk and I'm feeling very positive about my future. I hope Tim knows how much I value his friendship but I thought that the rest of you should know it too. Especially, since so many of you think he's an ass. ;-)

Tim is taking a hiatus from blogging. He's got a lot going on right now but hopefully he'll be back with us, in a few months. He might leave a comment now and then but don't expect more. Despite the chiding he gets for his Hawaiian location, he does actually work. You remember the whole War on Terror thingy, right? Luckily, Arnold has stepped in and picked up the slack. Timing is everything and Arnold Harris has it going on! Plus, he likes us feisty Slavic chicks and that right there gets him extra points with me. And Stefi too, I imagine.

I've come a long way baby and I didn't do it alone. So, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all of your support and most of all, your friendship. Also, I should mention that my family played the largest role of all but expressing my gratitude to them is something that I will handle, in person, for many years to come. This is really the only way I can say thanks to you.

You know...I was just gonna post some profane Youtube video but it's Palm Sunday. I'm not the greatest Catholic but I don't feel like having my mom blister my ears...and she would. That woman doesn't take shit from anyone. Have a great day!

I Really Miss...

HBO's Rome. I know Rhianna does too! I loved that series. I miss Titus Pullo, he was my favorite character but Vorenus was also right up there. I cried a little when he died... I could re-watch that series again and again.

Also, and it does not get mentioned often enough because it went away so abruptly, Deadwood. Why? I'm still a little pissed about HBO's decision to not renew it.

Win the nomination, lose the election?

Marie Cocco, summing up the Democratic Party dilemma on Real Clear Politics, simultaneously pops all the balloons of those who imagine that Senator Obama capturing the Democratic Party presidential nomination in August wins the national election for their party in November.

The essential calculus of the overall campaign is that Obama's voters represent something like 90% of more of the black community; most of the left wing white voters; an ideterminate number of the white hyper-educated and well-connected classes.

Senator Clinton, in contrast, routinely wins most of the white vote, and the working class white vote in overwhelming numbers. She wins the Roman Catholic vote, in a country in which Catholics are the largest single christian denomination. She gets most of the latino vote. She gets most of the jewish vote, to no small degree because american Jews already do not trust Obama's likely policy toward Israel, as based on his apparent choice of foreign policy advisers and people such as Minister Farakham for whom the senator has not told off publicly. Above all, she scores heavily with women, partly for the same reason Obama scores heavily with blacks.

Global Warming Lawsuit

The founder of The Weather Channel was to sue Al Gore for fraud. He figures that a legal debate could settle the issue of Global Warming once and for all.

John Coleman, who founded the cable network in 1982, suggests suing for fraud proponents of global warming, including Al Gore, and companies that sell carbon credits.

"Is he committing financial fraud? That is the question," Coleman said.

"Since we can't get a debate, I thought perhaps if we had a legal challenge and went into a court of law, where it was our scientists and their scientists, and all the legal proceedings with the discovery and all their documents from both sides and scientific testimony from both sides, we could finally get a good solid debate on the issue," Coleman said. "I'm confident that the advocates of 'no significant effect from carbon dioxide' would win the case." [...] "Does carbon dioxide cause a warming of the atmosphere? The proponents of global warming pin their whole piece on that," he said.

The compound carbon dioxide makes up only 38 out of every 100,000 particles in the atmosphere, he said.

"That's about twice as what there were in the atmosphere in the time we started burning fossil fuels, so it's gone up, but it's still a tiny compound," Coleman said. "So how can that tiny trace compound have such a significant effect on temperature?

"My position is it can't," he continued. "It doesn't, and the whole case for global warming is based on a fallacy."

Another pointless lawsuit. Next up, a class action suit brought by impotent men against Playboy and Hustler. Tort reform. That's a great idea. I wish someone would think of it...

Chickens Do Indeed Come Home to Roost!

Remember all the flack Bush got for visiting Bob Jones University? Or McCain for speaking at Liberty University?

Well, guess what happens when you get on your high finger pointing, repudiation demanding horses? What happens, my kittens, is that kind of behavior comes back to bite you on your big, liberal asses. Now your candidate has to spend time explaining a thousand different ways that he does not agree with his bat-shit crazy pastor. A pastor who says that blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God Damn America" and that the U.S. is to blame for 9/11. That's what happens. At least, I know why Michelle Obama isn't proud of her country, she learned that shit in church.

His minister is nuttier than a squirrel's anus and now Obama has to take time away from his busy schedule thinking of more ways to say nothing just to repudiate and distance himself, again.

Why? Because chickens do indeed come home to roost and now it's payback time. While I'm enjoying myself immensely watching Obama twist, in the wind, it's nowhere near as satisfying as watching you guys cry over the unfairness of it all.

I think I'll go make some popcorn...

I Cannot Even Begin To Understand

How a woman can sit on her boyfriend's toilet for 2 years... And why did it take the boyfriend 2 years to get help for her. MY GOD! Her butt literally grew onto the seat. Gross!

Deputies say a woman in western Kansas became stuck on her boyfriend's toilet after sitting on it for two years.

Ness County Sheriff Bryan Whipple said it appeared the 35-year-old Ness City woman's skin had grown around the seat. She initially refused emergency medical services but was finally convinced by responders and her boyfriend that she needed to be checked out at a hospital.

"We pried the toilet seat off with a pry bar and the seat went with her to the hospital," Whipple said. "The hospital removed it."

Whipple said investigators planned to present their report Wednesday to the county attorney, who will determine whether any charges should be filed against the woman's 36-year-old boyfriend.

"She was not glued. She was not tied. She was just physically stuck by her body," Whipple said. "It is hard to imagine. ... I still have a hard time imagining it myself."

I'm still in shock. Clearly, these two belong together. The guy and the girl, not the girl and the toilet seat...

Spitzer Resigns With His Nearly Sobbing Wife By His Side

I can't say I'm sad to hear that this asshole quit. I only wish Detroit's Mayor Kilpatrick followed suit... That won't happen because he's living in the land of entitlement.

So, poor Mrs. Spitzer is standing by her pig husband and I'm thinking what is wrong with this chick? You know what would have been refreshing? If after his speech, she turned to him, smiled, slugged him in his nut sack and screamed: "I want a divorce asshole". THAT would've been something new. The whoremonger would've deserved it.

I can't stand people that make commitments and then spit on them like they mean nothing. That he had the audacity to make his wife stand there, in front of all those reporters, for that press conference. That was probably worse than finding out he screwed all those prostitutes. On the other hand, maybe not. Everytime I look at Spitzer I think, he's probably a really shitty lay anyway. Still...

Ferraro's Gaff?

So, Geraldine was making some good points and then she steps in it. But even still she wasn't totally wrong. Here is what she said that has the liberals having spastic fits:

"I think what America feels about a woman becoming president takes a very secondary place to Obama's campaign - to a kind of campaign that it would be hard for anyone to run against," she said. "For one thing, you have the press, which has been uniquely hard on her. It's been a very sexist media. Some just don't like her. The others have gotten caught up in the Obama campaign.

"If Obama was a white man, he would not be in this position," she continued. "And if he was a woman (of any color) he would not be in this position. He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept."

She's not wrong, necessarily. Yes, I don't need a lesson on how being born an "African-American" isn't a lucky thing. Whatever. Maybe not but since Obama hasn't said anything of substance and he has no real experience - the only thing going for him right now is that he is young, good looking, black and smart.

That's good enough for a lot of rich, white guiltridden people to vote for him. That may not be why YOU want him but don't be naive. Let's not pull that shit here, okay?

This is one of the reasons why John Edwards stood ZERO chance. Liberals love to prove how open and accepting they are. They will vote for a black man with no plan, no experience and nothing on the table besides a sparkling persona over a John Edwards, who, despite my belittling remarks of him had a slew of ideas, plans and passion.

Why? Because they want to make Michelle Obama FINALLY proud to be an American. Because it's about time we had a black President...

What about a woman? you nitwits!

Because and here is really the crux of it, they need to prove how un-racist they are by voting for an empty suit because he has the right "look". And you are just fooling yourselves if you think there is anymore than that going on.

Remember what Eddie Izzard said:

"All that people care about is the look, because there's figures on this. 70% of what people react to is the look, you know, it's how you look; and 20% is about how you sound; and only 10% is what you say.

So if you look good and sound good, just go up there and keep confirming and denying things. Everyone will go wild! Oh, yeah, oh yeah!

Give me some time to read and I will be ready to piss someone off shortly! Frankly, it's my life's goal to piss everyone off - all at once. Let's see if I can manage something quickly...

Does it bother you when people refer to Barack Obama as Obama bin Laden?

That makes me laugh out loud. LOUD, baby! How about the Obamatrons? Laugh out loud or are you ready to drop your granola and throw down?

American Idol: Now the fun begins.

by Jerry

Finally. After weeks upon weeks of whittling down, we are at the final stage of the American Idol competition. 6 guys, 6 girls. May the best David win.

Actually, if I'm being honest, this is the first season where I can see any one of the 12 finalists winning it all. This is the anti-VFTW season. Those guys are having a tough time figuring out which one is the worst. They are all that close.

Below the (show) are pictures of the top 12. Most of which will probably go on to super stardom regardless if they win the title of American Idol or not. This season is really going to be that good.

(show)

Now that you know who they are. Pick one guy and one girl that you'd like to see in the finale in May. I'll go first. David Cook & Brooke White. I'm not asking who you think would win, just who you feel deserves a shot to be the American Idol. The winner is a foregone conclusion., David Archuleta has a fan base that rivals the Soul Patrol of Taylor Hicks, and we all know what happened with that no-talent hack. Thankfully David A. can sing.

She's Good...

Are you kidding me? Do we really need someone to ask this question: Does Clinton benefit from so-called 'dream ticket' talk?

Of course, she benefits. Are you brain damaged? She's losing races, she's behind in the delegate count and she doesn't want to be on the bottom any more. She's a woman that finally wants to ride on top...

Why do you think she keeps hammering Obama's lack of experience? She wants his cult-stardom but she doesn't want to be his bitch. She's a Clinton, dammit! Clinton's don't bend over for ANYONE and she will never be satisfied as a VP. She's got Obama constantly telling people that he isn't running for VP now. That's just beautiful. The guy is winning and he's having to reiterate his desire for the big chair.

She's good. She's so very good. She's gonna make Obama an offer he can't refuse. Mark this day! I am predicting - Obama will be the VP candidate and Hillary will be on the top of the ticket.

Plastic Surgery is Child Abuse?

People are outraged at parents in the U.K. for having their child undergo plastic surgery. People should mind their own business. The child that everyone is so concerned about has Down's Syndrome. If the world were a different place, then maybe, the parents would not have felt it was necessary for their child to have the surgeries.

In the first procedure, Georgia's tongue was reduced to stop it from protruding, according to the paper. Then folds of skin were removed from the inner corners of her eyes to take away the "slantiness characteristic" of Down syndrome. Finally, she had surgery to stop her ears from sticking out.

What parent makes this decision lightly? This was clearly motivated by love of their child and the desire for her to fit in better, rather than suffer teasing, taunting and lord knows what type of other abuse from so-called normal children.

This kind of thing is what I think of when I think of plastic surgery. Real need. This wasn't about enhancement, it was to help this child look more average. Do we scream when a child with a minor cleft palate gets surgery? Or a child born with one ear? Allowing children to grow up normal is a gift especially when they are born with disabilities.

Walk a mile in their shoes. Parents do what they think is best for their child and before you point your finger, look at your own house. What would some holier than thou person find there?

Spitzer's Blown His Shot

I've always thought that "crimes" like drugs and prostitution should be legal. Regulated but legal. So, I normally have a hard time coming down on people that are caught in stings with prostitutes. This isn't one of those times.

Elliot Spitzer made his career being "tough" on crime. Not just being tough, no he was a real prick, he seemed to relish ruining the lives of many men for doing what he has been caught doing.

Karma is a bitch!

What goes around ALWAYS comes back around. It's one of the reasons I'm sleeping well at night these days. I've stopped dwelling on thoughts of vengeance, I've let go of all my anger. I know, deep in my gut, the world will right itself and this is a prime example.

(show)

Nasty little people ALWAYS get their comeuppance. ALWAYS. Some not as soon as we like, some not as public as we like but they always get it. Lucky for the many men innocent men that were destroyed by Spitzer and his need to excessively punish and build his career on their complete destruction, his is nice and public.

Blog police to scrub out anonmous posts and comments ??!)

There's this legislator in eastern Kentucky who wants to make anonymous posting and commenting illegal on blogs and other websites.

I suppose nobody ever clewed in this jerk about freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so on. And I can only laugh when I think about the complexities that would ensue from actually setting up a federal or state agency to try to enforce such a rule. Is there such a thing as a blogsite cop?

As most everybody knows who reads QOAE or DW, I always have disdained anonymity either in posts cr comments. But not everybody is made of such stern stuff. So, I say we all go along with the way blogs are policed now. Which means that, you piss off the blogmaster, he or she runs your ass southward to the Gulf of Mexico. Works very well, both in theory and in practice.

Why Is IT ALWAYS Florida?

FL. Sen Bill Nelson wants Florida to have revote. He said that Florida DESERVES a revote.

First off, deserves?
Really?
Why?

They'll just fuck it up anyway. Florida always fucks up the voting process. They are always "disenfranchised"™.

I've had it up to here [my hand is waving over my head, just in case, you have "visualization issues"] with Florida screwing shit up. Can't we just sell Florida back to Spain? Let's just make Puerto Rico a State and then we don't have to worry about changing the flag or anything.

If Michigan doesn't get a revote then Florida can suck it. We here, in Michigan, are just as worthy as anyone. If we are going to be "disenfranchised"™ because a handful of dolts broke the rules, then that's that. Florida is no more special than anyone, well they are special - short yellow bus special but that is beside the point.

[Ed. note: If you are a Republican residing in Florida...why are you residing in Florida? Just kidding. ;-)]

Looks Like Hillary Might Be Done

After the reversal of fortune in Texas and yesterday's caucus in Wy. Obama's momentum is just not stopping. Polling in Mississippi is solid for Obama and I think it's time Hillary start reassessing her future. She probably won't want to be a VP candidate with Obama but that is sure better than being an unremarkable Senator. If she wants to move forward, she'd probably better start playing nice.

Step one, stop making campaign commercials for John McCain. Every suggestion that McCain would be better for the country than Obama is a golden opportunity for the RNC.

Hillary Clinton's Turning Point

There is every indication that the Mar 4, 2008 primary elections in which Senator Clinton won two more of the big states (Texas and Ohio) plus one of the small states (Rhode Island), marked the sea change of the Democratic Party nomination battle.

Other factors to note:

First, the national news media has begun serious and even hard-ball vetting of Senator Obama for the first time;

Second, Clinton’s use of one of the most memorable political attack ads recently seen on campaign TV obviously undermined her opponent's campaign;

Third, careful analysis of exit polls in all the election states that have held primaries and caucused this year show Obama's lack of support among all sorts of traditionally-democratic voting blocs. Most of this data is mostly difficult or even fatal for Senator Obama's campaign outcome expectations this year. For example:

They Must Go

(Copied from Dean’s World)

No peace is possible between Israel and either the Hamastinians of Gaza or the Fatah-dominated gang in Ramallah. This in fact has been the true state of affairs since the local Arabs began treating Zionism as an enemy phenomenom immediately after World War I. And the only factor that keeps the Arabs of Trans-Jordan and Egypt at official peace with Israel is that their governments live on bribes paid annually by the US government.

But these and other arab governments are not in position to stop the terrorism any more than the US government or the government of any other outside country can stop the Jews from exercizing what they see as their ancient right to repopulate the entirety of the Land of Israel.

There really is only a single answer to the continual arab terrorism, and it has been the only possible answer all along, short of removing the entire jewish population from the Middle East.

Dirty Politics...

Obama has some very shaky Chicago friends but that seems just fine with you Obamatrons... I'd bet my ass that Obama would be called all kinds of despicable names, for this Rezko crap, if he had an "R" next to his name.

On the plus side, Hillary still has an opportunity to make him suffer longer. Maybe she'll have some new ads up superimposing the heads of Obama and Rezko on top of old footage of Al Capone and Frank Nitty, in 1930's Chicagoland. All gritty and slime like this campaign should be. That would be way cool. Maybe I'll send her campaign some ideas...

Do Over?

Now that the Democratic Nomination is looking like it's going down to the wire, Michigan and Florida are trying to set up a do over Primary, by June.

The Democratic National Committee stripped both states of all their delegates for holding the primaries too early, and all Democratic candidates - including Clinton and rival Barack Obama - agreed not to campaign in either state. Obama's name wasn't even on the Michigan ballot.

Florida and Michigan moved up their dates to protest the party's decision to allow Iowa and New Hampshire to go first, followed by South Carolina and Nevada, giving them a disproportionate influence on the presidential selection process.

But no one predicted the race would still be very close this late in the year.

Ironically, Michigan and Florida could have held crucial primaries if they had stayed with their traditional later dates. They may yet do so if they decide to hold new contests as Clinton and Obama compete to the wire.

Clinton has been insisting that the desires of more than 2 million people who cast Democratic ballots in the two states should be reflected at the convention, which would help her catch up to Obama in the race for convention delegates. Obama has said he wants to see the delegates from the two critical swing states participate, too, but not if Clinton is rewarded for victories in boycotted primaries.

This just keeps getting better...

A Real Traitor

Former U.S. Navy sailor was convicted of spying.

A former US navy sailor has been convicted of spying and supplying a pro-al-Qaeda website with information on American warship movements.

Hassan Abujihaad, 32, was found guilty of providing material support to terrorists and disclosing secret national defence information.

He was arrested last year in Phoenix, Arizona.

Abujihaad, a Muslim convert previously known as Paul Hall, faces 25 years in jail when he is sentenced on 23 May.

He showed no emotion as he was convicted of passing classified details of US navy ships to Azzam.com by a jury at the US District Court in New Haven, Connecticut.

Azzam was an Islamist website that prosecutors said had actively supported terrorists but has now closed.

25 years for providing terrorists with information that jeopardized our military men and women? That is way too lenient. That is the kind of shit we have a death penalty for. I know, I know...I'm evil. I don't care, that son of a bitch deserves a firing squad and I still think THAT is being nice. Too quick of a death.

While I think this is horribly disturbing news, it's a good example for some. Too many people toss around the word traitor for stupid crap like watching a Michael Moore film or criticizing Islam. That isn't being a traitor, that is no more than an exercise in FREE SPEECH.

Selling out your country and your former military brothers and sisters to terrorists?

THAT IS TREASON!!

I don't want to be accused of cackling but it looks very good for the Clinton campaign!

Obama is ahead in the delegate count but by a lesser margin than before and now it seems the Obamarama is going down and Hill is going up...

I guess all that positive thinking I've been doing is WORKING!

MENOPAUSE JEWELRY

How about something funny for this morning?

My husband, being unhappy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my moods.

We've discovered that when I'm in a good mood, it turns green and when I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big fuckin' red mark on his forehead.

Maybe next time he'll buy me a diamond.

As Ron White says: "Diamonds...that'll shut her up."

Super Duper Tuesday!

McCain has this thing in a walk.

Obama took Vermont. Obama is edging Clinton in Texas by 2 but it's still very early.

Clinton has Rhode Island and it's looking like she has Ohio locked up!

I love this sport!

I Can't Believe I'm Going To Thank Rush Limbaugh!

Limbaugh urges listeners to vote for Clinton.

Limbaugh has been actively urging his Texas listeners to cross over and vote for Clinton in that state's open primary Tuesday, arguing it helps the Republicans if the Democratic race remains unsettled for weeks to come.

"I want Hillary to stay in this…this is too good a soap opera," Limbaugh told fellow conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday. He reiterated the comments on his Monday show and replayed the exchange with Ingram.

He also said Clinton is more willing than the Republican National Committee and John McCain's campaign to criticize Barack Obama.

"We need Barack Obama bloodied up politically. It's obvious that the Republicans are not going to do it, they don't have the stomach for it," Limbaugh continued. "As you probably know we're getting all kinds of memos from the RNC saying we're not going to be critical. Mark McKinnon of McCain's campaign said he'll quit if they get critical over Obama. This is the presidency of the United States we're talking about. I want our party to win I want the Democrats to lose.”

He could actually help her win the nomination! We could be thanking Rushbo for another Clinton Presidency. The is so funny, it actually hurts my sides. OMG! I can't believe this is even happening...

This Could Be It

This could be the end of the Clinton campaign...

And the beginning of The Obamarama Election 2008 Drama.

Crap, now I'm going to have to come up with all kinds of original jokes for Obama. What to do? Hmmm, it's not like he's gonna save a hamster or dress up like a Ooompa Loompa. I miss John Kerry, the jokes just wrote themselves...

Any chance Barack will pick John Kerry as a running mate? Nah, he'll most likely pick Silky Edwards...

Women Falling for Obama

Screw you, you woman hating feminazi!

Women screaming and fainting in ecstacy over Barack Obama. No fooling. I say it’s time to repeal the 19th amendment if this is how you get elected in this country.

Oh wait... wrong link. I meant misogynist, not feminazi. ;-)

Ah yes, here's the one I meant ... Screw you, you woman hating feminazi!

I can't help it, but reading about such episodes of screaming, gushing and swooning makes me wonder whether women — I should say, "we women," of course — aren't the weaker sex after all. Or even the stupid sex, our brains permanently occluded by random emotions, psychosomatic flailings and distraction by the superficial. Women "are only children of a larger growth," wrote the 18th-century Earl of Chesterfield. Could he have been right?

You want to know what I shouted out to Bill Clinton when he was running for President? It was much raunchier than "I love you Bill". I can assure you of that... I voted for him, I campaigned for him, heck...I flashed him in a very girls gone wild kinda way. That didn't make me stupid, weak or deserving of losing my right to vote. I was in my 20's, in college and he was young and sexy. Very JFK-ish. I'm sure these young girls view Obama the same way. BIG DEAL.

Get over it. People who complain about that kind of stuff are just small and petty people. They just wish they could get women to swoon over something besides their scent...

Maybe She Did But...

Obama makes a gaff, Clinton tries to make him look foolish and he Ronald Reagan's his way out of it...

Obama on Clinton:

“What precise foreign-policy experience is she claiming that makes her qualified to answer that telephone call at 3 a.m. in the morning?” Obama asked of the former first lady at a town-hall meeting. It was a reference to dueling television ads over who would exercise superior judgment in responding to a national emergency in the middle of the night.

When it came time to make the most important foreign policy decision of our generation the decision to invade Iraq Senator Clinton got it wrong,” Obama said.

Hindsight is 20/20. You can call it a wrong decision and that makes you very popular. There are plenty of people that don't believe the decision to go in was wrong. Many of us believe that we had every legal and moral right to go in and take out Saddam AND that it should've been done BEFORE George W. Bush was elected.

The planning was poor and that is not Sen. Clinton's fault. The decisions that were made at the Executive level were wrong and those are not Sen. Clinton's fault. So, while you were screwing around in Chitown having to make real tough decisions like, what do you want for lunch today, others had to make real tough calls. Some of those calls didn't pan out but, at least, she was there to make them. She didn't just get elected to the Senate and immediately begin her campaign for POTUS...like some others I won't mention. cough Barack Obama cough

South America Going to War?

This can't be good.

President Hugo Chavez ordered tanks and thousands of troops on Sunday to the border with Colombia, accusing it of pushing South America to the brink of war by killing a top rebel leader on Ecuadorean soil.

Denouncing Colombia's slaying of the rebel commander in a cross-border raid into Ecuador, Chavez said Venezuela will respond militarily if Colombia violates its border. He ordered Venezuela's embassy in Bogota closed.

Ecuador's president, Rafael Correa, also ordered troops to the Colombian border, withdrew his government's ambassador from Bogota and ordered Colombia's top diplomat expelled.

Not even sure what to say. I was gonna try and make a joke about how this could really make things tough for all the U.S. drug dealers but...

There really isn't anything funny about impending war.

Saturday Night !

I'm going out with the girls for some martinis. After a long day with 4 boys playing video games - I need two things. Since neither of what I really need are available, I'll take the pomegranate martinis!

Any good links or things to complain about?
