Hole in the Ground

The Onion is satire, but this is a pretty accurate description. Five years of George Pataki's disinterested leadership leads to this. A hole in the ground.

Fake But Accurate

When Dan Rather was caught knowingly reporting that forged documents proved George W. Bush dodged his military service, he claimed that the docs might be fake, but the story is accurate. In that context, I thought it was one of the dumbest things I ever heard. But now, I couldn't come up with a better description of the ABC mini-series about the run-up to 9/11.

Ok, everyone admits that the scene when Sandy (the 9/11 documents) Berg(l)er denied authorization to CIA operatives and Afghan fighters coming close to capturing Osama bin Laden in the 1990s didn't happen. However, the man cannot deny the fact that Osama bin Laden was indeed offered up to the Clinton Administration and they didn't take action. That is INDISPUTABLE!

This is a mini-series trying to explain 8 years of ignoring al-Qaeda into 5 hours of television. It had to make certain points obvious. It was, indeed, Fake but Accurate.


There's been so much written on this (and I read so much of it), that I cannot give this post any justice to write down all I feel about it. So, I am going to give a few thoughts on it and going to link to the pros who are all over this controversy.

- The hypocracy of the left knows no bounds. They were absolutely hollering when CBS pulled their sensationalized mini-series The Reagans. And CBS didn't even get a phone call from Ronnie himself!

- Imagine the uproar if George Bush tried what Bill Clinton did. The unhinged left would collectively blow a gasket!

- The Democratic National party is now behaving the same way as their (once) far-left lunatic fringe of extremists do.

- The party of free speech and dissent will do anything to squash it when free speech criticizes them or any dissent against their beliefs.

- All presidents starting from Jimmy Carter on are guilty of ignoring Islamic terrorism, but the conflagration of it happened on Bill Clinton's watch.

- As depicted in the mini-series, after the scene when Sandy Berger denies authorization to capture bin Laden, the next scene was Clinton wagging his finger, "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky." This too was accurate in my opinion. The man was totally distracted and consumed with his own self-preservation that a serious threat to our national security was ignored. This was despicable. The man, if he had any sense of decency, respect, class or responsibility to his nation, he would have resigned from office because he was no longer fit to serve!

Ok, I had to get that out of my system. Here is the most comprehensive blog on the subject that I read. I includes links to many other posts and a lot of insightful comments. Of course, it's Michelle Malkin's HotAir site.

I'm So Important

"Angie and I will consider tying the knot when everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able." - Brad Pitt

Do you think you are really that important? That people will want to see you two married so bad that they will demand laws to allow gay marriage?

I cannot believe someone would be that audacious, but you never know with famous people in America.

As I was thinking this over, "this guy isn't serious, is he?" it hit me like a bolt of lightning! This is the best excuse I have heard in a while! "Honey, we can't get married until everyone can get married, it wouldn't be right!" You think that'll work?
