Present!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

When your oldest, closest ally asks for support in a territorial dispute you should:

A) Support them
B) Vote Present

As you would expect Barry O chose option B. Now if Gordon Brown had a pair, he’d phone up Obama and tell him that due to the deteriorating situation in the South Atlantic, his military advisors are recommending the withdrawal of half of the British troop contingent in Afghanistan on short notice for redeployment to the Falklands to drive the point home that a few words of support for Britain is a small price to pay for all the military and diplomatic support this country has provided in the War on Terror. Unfortunately, Brown’s either not smart enough, or too much a coward to put the screws in.

The Law of Unintended Consequences and all that.

From Eric Fehrnstrom, senior strategist for Scott Brown in today’s senate election in Massachusetts.

People are tired of that kind of partisan politics and Scott is ready to engage in a recount if one becomes necessary and also to fight to be seated as soon as possible. Right now, the seat is occupied by an interim senator (Democratic Sen. Paul Kirk) with a constituency of one — Gov. Deval Patrick (D., Ma.), the man who appointed him.” Think about it, he says: “If they had just left the law alone, they wouldn’t be in the situation they find themselves in now.”

Them ejimucated Liberals – too smart by half methinks.

What do you get a guy who has everything?

Ok, so the guy in question is myself, and I don’t actually have “everything” – but my birthday’s this coming Tuesday and…

Oh I know.

Howzabout a Republican Senator from Massachusetts!

Why?

Because evil shouldn’t be awarded.
