“Obama is intelligent, charming, good-looking, stylish, well-educated and slick. He’s everything that other people who value such surfaces look for… not in a leader, but in an icon. And that’s what they’re buying by buying Obama, an icon. A glowing plastic post-modern Jesus for the dashboard of their Prius.”   — Gerard Vanderleun, American Digest.

‘Here I Rhyme’

Halloween? Meh. National Review‘s Mark Hemingway reminds us that Oct. 31 is also Reformation Day. To honor Martin Luther’s bold action 491 years ago today, a special rap video: Oh snap, he’s messin’ with the holy communion. But I ain’t never dissed your precious hypostatic union! One place at one time. Well, thank you Zwingli. • Read More »

The money quote from the Battle of Agincourt entry in Wikipedia ExJon linked to below: The French believed they would triumph over the English not only because their force was considerably larger, fresher and better equipped, but also because the large number of noble men-at-arms would have considered themselves superior to the large number of • Read More »

That’s not the cavalry coming to the rescue, that’s The Charge of the Light Brigade

And if you’re thinking that o’erwhelming numbers of young voters will sweep Obama into power on Tuesday, remember this: The original Obama girl, Amber Leee Ettinger, didn’t vote in the primaries because she needed a day to recover from an arduous and heart-wrenching cross-country plane flight. Because nothing wipes you out faster than flying *coach*. • Read More »

Friday Music Blogging… kinda.

October 31, 2008 | By admindude | 2 Comments | Filed in: Jon, Military, Movies, Music, Politics.

With the long odds given the GOP by pollsters and the MSM, it is time to shock the world. Instead of my normal Friday video, I wanted to share inspiration with the music. With an outstanding soundtrack by Sir Patrick Doyle, Kenneth Branagh’s Henry V offers the greatest motivational speech of all time. The King • Read More »

Of the lawyers, by the lawyers, for the lawyers.

I’ve often wondered what bug-eyed Bob has been up to. You didn’t think this interminable election was ending Tuesday, did you? On Tuesday, an estimated 5,000 lawyers and law students supporting Obama will fan out across Florida to monitor polling sites and assist voters, especially in minority, elderly and heavily Democratic precincts. The volunteers supporting • Read More »

Smoke and mirrors

Is Arizona in play? Will Obama’s wave of new elation wash across the state, insuring the Kwisatz Haderach a 50-state victory this Tuesday? In a word, no. In two words, Hell, no. Democrats voting early this year have closed the gap against Republicans in traditionally GOP-leaning Maricopa County, but not enough to drastically shake up • Read More »

Bond’s left hand was a little low on his SiG in that earlier post, so here’s IPSC World Champion Todd Jarrett giving a short lesson on how to hold a pistol for maximum control and accuracy. Just remember: The more that your hands are on the gun, the more control you’ll have over the gun.

Mixed blessings

It’s been quite a week for former Democratic Presidential candidate and Breck shampoo spokeperson John Edwards: First, it looks like his marriage with his cancer-stricken wife has reached it’s logical end, leaving Mr. Edwards free to carry on with the woman pre-op transvestite of his dreams, documentary film director Reille Hunter. But on the down • Read More »

Two non-Americans threaten to leave America.

“Auf Wiedersehen!” I’m not seeing a down side: Seal and Heidi Klum join the list of celebrities threatening to leave the U.S. if John McCain wins Tuesday… Seal told this month’s Vanity Fair: “If McCain is elected and America staggers on further towards the abyss, then we will leave the country. That is not a • Read More »

Bond with a SiG?

October 30, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Bond with a SiG? | Filed in: Guns, Kevin, Movies.

Check it out. That’s not Bond’s usual PPK/P99, that’s definitely a Sig Sauer P226. Good. One of the things that annoyed me about the Bond films is that the sophistication of the firearms never matched the gadgetry: You’d have Bond in a jetpack and yet still be carrying a PPK. True, Bond did use a Gyrojet • Read More »

Remember this date

May 29, 2011. That’s when we’ll see the first in-depth, well-researched news stories on Obama’s lack of experience and questionable decisions.

Squishy cons

October 29, 2008 | By admindude | 5 Comments | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

Rod Dreher, the author of Crunchy Cons and a man for whom I have a lot of respect for, is sitting this election out because he can’t support Obama’s radical pro-abortion stance nor McCain’s “intemperate and bellicose” nature. With all due respect to Rod, he’s flat out wrong to do so. I find Rod’s idea • Read More »

Still racist after all these tears

October 29, 2008 | By admindude | 1 Comment | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

Well, it seems that not only am I a racist, I flat-out hate black people, which I admit comes as a quite a shock to me. I think, too, that McCain and Sarah Palin’s attack against Obama for advocating “spreading the wealth” and for “socialism” and for pronouncing the civil rights revolution a “tragedy” because • Read More »

Let’s review: Ohio state legislator Josh Mandel, a former Marine, is elected to the house in 2006. During his first term, he is asked to return to service, and, being a Marine, he does so. His Democratic opponents then claim that Josh “abandoned” the people of Ohio, “put his personal ambitions ahead of his constituents” • Read More »

It’s kinda fun being a USPSA shooter in the East Valley: Rob Leatham was born and raised here, Angus Hobdell and Kelly Neal call the Valley home, along with wunderkid Nils Jonasson. It’s like shooting hoops and have Larry Bird and Magic Johnson wander by the court: You know you’re somewhere where the sport is • Read More »

Picture this

Ok, let’s set some ground rules: Taking pictures of yourself, or taking pictures of your guns (not at the same time) – Good. Taking pictures of yourself with your guns – Bad, (with 3 exceptions). 1. You’re in the military, and posing in-theater with your buddies before a mission 2. You’re heading home after a • Read More »

First, the good news

According to “Ground Zero“, if the closest airport gets hit with a tactical nuclear warhead, I’m fairly safe: All I have to worry about is being blinded by the flash and dying of radiation poisoning, (I knew all those canned goods and bottled water would come in handy one day). Now, the bad news: If • Read More »

McCain within two?

Granted, I love polls that tell me what I want to hear. But according to Gallup, Maverick is closing the gap. As we continue Chartsengrafs Day on ExLg, check today’s numbers:    This isn’t some crazy Zogby or University of West Dakota poll — it’s Gallup. One week to go, kids. Fasten your seatbelts.
