The boat didn’t really sink either, Senator Obama

May 31, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on The boat didn’t really sink either, Senator Obama | Filed in: Kevin, Movies, Politics.

As Obama-wan Kenobi seems unfamiliar with how Hollywood makes movies, (quite a surprise, given the smoke-and-mirrors nature of his candidacy), I’d like to take a moment and clue him into a few other “facts” about movies. 1. People don’t actually die when they get shot in a movie, though this is true only if your • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – Band of Brothers

May 31, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Saturday Movie Blogging – Band of Brothers | Filed in: Military, Movies, Politics.

Ok, so I mentioned it before. But I’m hoping Obama takes a few hours to watch this miniseries and learn some actual  history. I think it’s best that he knows the traditions and history of the men and women he will lead if elected President, rather than making it up as he goes along. Clip • Read More »

One last word about Crueller-gate

My personal favourite attempted defense of Rachel Ray and her keffiyeh was the commenter over at Perez Hilton who said “Those scarfs are on everyone here in England and no one cares at all.” Apparently that person doesn’t read read Mark Steyn. The most common defense, though, seems to be “It’s just a scarf, get • Read More »

Choose your caption! 1. After the embarrassing incident, the Palestinian police cadet blamed it on “Zionist pant technology.” 2. The Gaza Theatre for the Performing Arts practice their off-WestBank performance of Gymkata! The Musical. 3. The Fatah trainee wonders if The Gap offers a “right of return.” (Via LGF.)

The myth of weaponry

May 30, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on The myth of weaponry | Filed in: Kevin, Military.

The U.S. did not sign an international treaty banning cluster munitions. Look for more outrage to spring up from all the usual places as once again the U.S. fails to pass the global test. But the fact is, cluster bombs, if used right, are not a danger to civilians. It’s not the weapon itself, it’s • Read More »

Friday Music Blogging: Futureheads

The Futureheads can do no wrong. These heirs to The Jam and The Buzzcocks (with some math rock and power pop thrown in) just released their third album. This video of studio-complied footage is for the song “Broke Up the Time”.

You can take umbrage, but where can you leave it?

I thought it was good to be a skeptic.

Speaking of awesome names, I’ve always loved Charles Krauthammer. It’s uncompromising, intellectual and violent all at once. He has a great article in National Review Online about the GloboWarmy fad. Check it: I’m not a global-warming believer. I’m not a global-warming denier. I’m a global-warming agnostic who believes instinctively that it can’t be very good • Read More »

What do you really think, Bob?

The Politico got their pixel-stained hands on an email sent by Bob Dole to Scott McClellan. Dole’s office confirmed it’s accuracy. Here’s an excerpt: There are miserable creatures like you in every administration who don’t have the guts to speak up or quit if there are disagreements with the boss or colleagues. No, your type • Read More »

The Most Awesomest Name Ever.

I just ran across a guy’s name today while updating my contacts on LinkedIn. Are you ready for it? Okay, here it is: Kosmo Rotundo. Is that the coolest name you’ve ever heard? Yes, it most certainly is! But I’ve heard an even better name. When I was stationed at Pearl Harbor, the manager of • Read More »

Pocket Protector

          As I mentioned before, I have a .380 Kel-Tec P3AT for my daily carry firearm. It’s very small, light, thin, and it disappears into the front pocket of my pants, even with an extra six-round mag.                       The only problem with it was, I couldn’t hit the • Read More »

Abe Greenwald of Commentary magazine unveils a shocker.

Our friend Dr. Zaius at Infinite Monkeys has a post on his experience with the bitter ex-press sec titled, The most incompetent McClellan since the Civil War: It’s especially pathetic and disgraceful when you consider that McClellan has been a Bush insider since 1990 — which encompasses most of his adult life.

Washington is abuzz about former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s scathing  “tell-all” memoir about his years in the White House. But there are many more revelations yet to be reported by the MSM. 10. Karl Rove’s weather machine wasn’t powerful enough to cause Katrina, but it did add to the general mugginess afterwards. 9. • Read More »

The right-wing blogosphere is all a-twitter because of Scott McClellan’s new book that blasts how the Bush administration handled the pre-Iraq war media push. This is news?

A very historic occurrence: Obama slips up yet again and this time doesn’t blame it on a campaign worker. Alert the media. Well, the ones that aren’t already in his cheering section yet, that is.

Can’t say I blame him. I’d be ticked off as well if strange objects from another planet kept landing in my backyard. I wonder if he buys coffee from Starbucks…

Jon may think otherwise, but I find myself agreeing with Jonah Goldberg: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin would make a great VP for McCain. She’s an outsider like McCain and would bring a lot of Democratic voters over to the GOP if Obama gets the nomination. And she brings as much influence geography-wise as Cheney did • Read More »
