Here's another thought

Did anyone else other than me see the movie The Second Civil War? Phil Hartman plays a complete idiot of a President and goes about the movie making blunders after blunder every time he's on screen. Joe Biden reminds me of the President in that movie. Clueless, ineffectual, a smarmy blabbermouth, worthless. A politician who is all sizzle and no steak.

I'm trying to find the video clip of Biden saying that you can't walk into a convenience store without a slight Indian accent. You watch that video, and then you watch Phil Hartman playing the dipshit, and compare the two. THEY ARE IDENTICAL! The voice, the facial expressions, the clear lack of intelligence shown by both men (although Hartman was only acting stupid), they are identical.

Trust me on this. It would be a perfect political ad. Well, it would if anyone else other than myself had actually watched the movie.

Here's a thought

And you can tell me if this is a little crazy, but what of Obama picked Biden as a way to present a target that wasn't himself? I mean, you have Biden, a career politician, a walking gaffe machine, a guy who embodies everything that is wrong with politics in general and the Democrat American Communist Party specifically.

In short, he's the perfect target.

What if that's the point? I mean, Obama sits back and lets Biden get pounded, while all the while he pounds on McCain, and in the end it doesn't matter what Obama stands for because NOBODY CAN REMEMBER WHAT THE HELL HE SAID. Because all the attention was on Biden.

Or maybe I just had one drink too many.

Obama picks Biden

So the Lord Messiah Barak Hussien Obama, the holy purveyor of Changy-Hopiness, picks a lifetime politician who has been in office since BEFORE I WAS EVEN BORN. If you want a picture perfect example of the corrupt status-quo, Biden is an excellent example. Not the only example of course, but a damn good one.

I suppose if you wanted to attract the coastal liberal elites, Biden is a great pick. If you wanted to attract voters from the Midwest, the South and Western states, you couldn't have picked a worse candidate for VP. Right now as the ticket stands, the candidate for President is a done-nothing neophyte from the Chicago political machine who stands for some vague concepts but nothing specific, and the candidate for VP is a career politician from the Northeast who's known for verbal gaffes and plagiarism.

I'm a little underwhelmed.

This will be an interesting election season.

A question

And Michael, you might be able to answer this -

Is it pronounced DEE-troit or De-TROIT?

Hey, what's that smell?

Does anyone else get the feeling that the Democrat America Communist Party rank and file have finally waken up to the fact that they've been handed a shit sandwich in terms of a Presidential nominee?

Granted, we conservatives also know that we have been handed a shit sandwich. We just knew it a long time ago.

Learn English, dumbass!

No, this isn't directed at those open-borders assholes who march up and down screaming "SI SE PUEDE!" This is directed at people who try to argue with myself or anyone else in print, and can't even bother to spell simple words correctly.

Now, I'm not talking about a few spelling errors here. I think that everyone who has typed up a document has made a few of those. Maybe put a comma where a period should have gone. Used a colon for a semicolon. Fine, those I can deal with. What I cannot deal with is crap like this:

u r a tool you don't now what ur talking about
Look, I get it - you're a spastic teenage twit who has never cracked open a book that didn't have pop-up pages. But if you're going to call me a tool, could you PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD try not to look like some ignorant, uneducated, worthless waste of time, space, and oxygen? Oh, and claiming to have a college degree while you write crap like that? Sorry, I was born at night but it wasn't last night.

You know what worries me? This brainless jughead is going to VOTE! He knows nothing about how this country works, why it was founded, the ideals behind it and the people that made it all happen. And yet he's going to be part of that great idiotic mass that votes for The Lord Messiah Barak Hussien Obama, and do his best to flush this country down the toilet.

I need more ammo.

UPDATE: Darling Wachel Wucas has another wonderful example of this sort of person.

The Army and Money

Let me give you a little back brief here, OK? As anyone who reads me on a regular basis (all ten of you, and I love yous guys!) know, I recently PCSed to a new station. And as anyone who has moved knows, moving takes money. Quite a bit of it in fact.

So, we have the PCS. The subsequent drive from my Home of Record to my new unit. Finding a house. Renting a house while we search for a house to buy. All of which takes money. Lots and lots of money. The wife and I had a darn good amount of cash stored in savings, but much of it was used. Not a problem, that's what it was there for, and we'll be getting some of it back from travel vouchers but that won't be for another month and a half or so. DFAS is swamped, so most vouchers take one to two months to process. Still not a big deal, or a big worry.

And now I go TDY. I have a 200 mile drive, followed by a plane trip to Detroit. I return on Sunday, pick up my truck and drive 200 miles back to my station. NOW we're getting into the big deal, because quite frankly I don't have the money to be buying plane tickets right now, yannow? But wait, the Army issues Government Travel Cards, credit cards to be used by government employees just for this purpose! Great! And I have one of those wonderful Government Travel Cards!

Which has bitten me in the ass every last time I used it. And it's biting me in the ass now. Somehow, the damn thing never got activated for this particular TDY. Yep, you have to activate it every last damn time you use the worthless fucking thing, and so now I'm sitting in Minnesota with little personal cash in my account, and a GTC which I'm forced to use that hasn't been activated! So I get to pull some of the remaining cash out of my savings to cover my lodging and food! ONCE AGAIN, I AM USING MY PERSONAL MONEY FOR ARMY BUSINESS, AND I AM GETTING RATHER TIRED OF IT! The last time I used the card, I had to wait two damn months for the card to get paid, and I was getting nasty-grams from the Bank of America, a thoroughly shitty bank that I strongly urge that nobody EVER use, and now even though I have a $200 credit on the card I can't use it because some dipshit up higher decided that it wasn't going to get activated!

I'm so pissed off I'm spitting nails.

At least the bank approved the loan for the house. And my wife still loves me. So does my dog. So, I have that.
