Quote for the Day

"If I could work my will, every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' upon his lips should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart!"
--Malott... working a 12-hour shift December 25th, 2010

Oh.... OK.... Merry Christmas

Lisa Murkowski Goes Rogue

Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski, shown here without make-up, is being called "The New Maverick" by Politico.

Murkowski is already showing a fierce independent streak, becoming the only Republican to cast votes on all four items on President Barack Obama’s wish list: a repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” a tax-cut compromise, the START deal and cloture for the DREAM Act.

As we have learned, Maverick is a term used by the Left to describe Rinos (Republicans in name only), who vote with Democrats, stab voters in the back, and will one day burn in Hell.
Murkowski recently was re-elected to the Senate as a write-in candidate due to the fact that Alaskans are fiercely independent and stupid.

Coldest December Since Record-Keeping Began

Swathes of Britain skidded to a halt today as the big freeze returned - grounding flights, closing rail links and leaving traffic at a standstill.

The Arctic conditions are set to last through the Christmas and New Year bank holidays and beyond and as temperatures plummeted to -10c (14f) the Met Office said this December was ‘almost certain’ to become the coldest since records began in 1910.

Has anyone seen Al Gore lately? Is he somewhere getting a massage? He's made his billion... Is he leaving the noble and unselfish world of public service now?

Except for gullible college students and the Left, people are no longer buying the global warming lie... So I'm left wondering what environmentalists have planned for us next... You know they're planning...

The Bri-gay-de

So the "Don't Ass, Don't Tell" policy has given way to the possibility that gays may soon openly serve in the U.S. Military.

Throughout our nation's history gays have enlisted in the Military - it's where the boys are - and many have served heroically and with distinction. I guess for detractors it's a question of whether open gayness will have a deleterious effect upon morale.

I was thinking that maybe gay military guys could sign up for their own specialized gay units... Wouldn't they prefer that anyway? Why not let them design their own uniforms and accessorize as they see fit? Who knows, maybe gay units might specialize in attacking from the rear. And you know their food would be great... And they would have the cleanest barracks in the history of warfare.

I'm just afraid the fruits of this new policy may be cultural engineering and the politicizing of the military... Which is not what the military is for. It will be interesting to see if any gay recruits use the policy to test the limits of military discipline, and then lawyer-up when things don't go well. Will there be charges that gays are not promoted fairly?

I hope all that doesn't happen. I'm very pro-soldier, and I'm sure the vast majority of "guy soldiers who prefer guys" want to serve their country with honor, and would never want their personal lives to compromise the effectiveness and morale of their units. Don't Ass, Don't Tell seemed like an effective way to facilitate that. I fear that overturning it only facilitates axe grinding.

It's ask?

Santa Claus Found Dead

North Pole (AP) --According to sources close to the Claus family, Santa Nicholas Claus was found dead Thursday morning of what appeared to be a massive heart attack. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday afternoon in Fairbanks, Alaska.

While the death was unexpected, rumors of binge drinking and heavy pipe smoking had filtered out of the closely knit North Pole community for the better part of 2010. "We all could see his weight was up significantly and that he was growing despondent," said publicist Digger, the elf. "He hasn't been the same since the reindeer died of lungworm disease in the fall of 2009. And then last spring when Mrs. Claus ran off with Patch, the lead elf, Santa sort of kept to himself. It's just been a very sad year for the entire crew."

Due to the proximity of the Christmas Holiday, the United States Federal Government has pledged to deliver Santa's gifts to girls and boys across America. Parents can expect the gifts to arrive via the U.S. Postal Service some time in late June.

Remaking True Grit

Now, you know... I've never been one to be critical. And casting Jeff Bridges as John Wayne and Matt Damon as Glen Campbell... They could have done worse. And I realize that the remakes of films such as The Buccaneer and My Favorite Wife were worth the effort. And goodness knows, the western genre is lately missing in theaters...

But there are classics that you just don't mess with. And when a beloved actor's lifetime of work yields one academy award, you don't turn around and give the part to someone else to improve upon.
