Quote of the Day

 “Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?”
--Vice President Joe Biden, to Charles Woods, the bereaved father of slain Navy Seal Tyrone Woods at the ceremony in which the four caskets from Benghazi were welcomed home.

According to Mark Stein, this was yelled in a “loud and boisterous” voice as he approached Mr Woods at the ceremony.  Biden, who is a "heartbeat away from the presidency," evidently thought this was appropriate for the occasion.

I would comment on Vice President Biden's manners, but Stein said it best:   "But the near-parodic locker-room coarseness is grotesque both in its inaptness and in its lack of basic human feeling for a bereaved family forced to grieve in public and as crowd-scene extras to the political bigshot. Just about the only formal responsibility a vice president has is to attend funerals without embarrassing his country. And this preening buffoon of pseudo-blue-collar faux-machismo couldn’t even manage that."

Quote of the Day

"My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic atheist lost in a world I didn’t understand, to an optimistic believer in a universe created and sustained by a loving God is crucial to me.  But following Christ does not mean following His followers. Christ is infinitely more important than Christianity and always will be, no matter what Christianity is, has been or might become.”
--Anne Rice... Author of Vampire Books and convert

Obama Booze

As the midwest's most exclusive think-tank, Malott's Blog recognizes its responsibilities to the country and endeavors to share its wisdom with those deemed worthy.  It is in that spirit that we seek to advise Governor Romney of our can't miss strategy for the upcoming election.

The entire staff at Malott's Blog believes Romney should suspend all campaign commercials the last week before the election, and use that money to purchase several thousand cases of cheap scotch whiskey.  To each bottle attach a note which reads, "You got your Obama Phone... Here is your Obama Booze.  So relax!  This election is in the bag!  Help me celebrate.  Yours truly, Barrack."

On Monday November 5th distribute the Obama Booze in all heavily Democrat Precincts in every swing state across the nation.

On election day, November 6th, the freebie-loving reprobate base of the Democrat Party will be too hungover to get out and vote.

It just makes sense.

Amazing Bonanza Facts for October

The character Hoss Cartwright was actually named Eric Haas Cartwright.  Hoss Cartwright was born in 1836, somewhere between California and Nevada. He is the son of Ben Cartwright and his second wife, Inger Borgstrom, a Swedish immigrant.

The opening credits would alternate the order among the four stars.

Ben Cartwright had three wives: Elizabeth (English), Inger (Swedish) and Marie (French Creole). All three wives were not around long enough to see their children grow up: Elizabeth died in childbirth, Inger was shot by an Indian with an arrow when Hoss was only a few weeks old, and Marie fell off of a horse and was killed when Joe was only five.

Dan Blocker (Hoss) weighed 14 pounds at birth, then the largest baby ever born in Bowie County, Texas.

The Ponderosa/Bonanza Steakhouses are inspired by the television show. The Bonanza Steakhouses were started by Dan Blocker and the Ponderosa Steakhouses were started by businessmen in Canada. Both are now owned by the same company.

Dan Blocker died in 1972 from a blood clot in his lung.  Lorne Greene died in 1987 of pneumonia following heart surgery.  Michael Landon died in 1991 of pancreatic cancer.  Pernell Roberts died in 2010 of pancreatic cancer.


Bonanza reruns can be seen every afternoon on TVLand...

Honey, Bee Poop, and You

When your home is in an enclosed space, like a European honeybee nest is, sanitation and hygiene are crucial. The combs are where the bees store the honey they make and eat, and also where the colony's eggs are laid. If bees deposited their waste anywhere on or near the combs, they'd risk contaminating their food supply and infecting their developing offspring. Unsurprisingly, they don't take that risk. Instead they defecate outside the nest (assuming they're mature enough to fly), or they do it on some hive surface that's well away from the combs.

Well I certainly feel better!  How about you?

If a wise man has an argument with a fool,
the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no peace.

Proverbs 29:9

I suppose if you knew nothing about politics or economics, and if your entire world revolved around The Maury Povich Show and Entertainment Tonight... I suppose you might think Biden won his debate.

If a picture paints a thousand words...

After the debate is over, Michelle Obama celebrates the democratic exchange of ideas and her husband's call for four more years of his amazing administration... Her facial expression displays her ebullience and confidence in her husband's performance.

Romney Impresses

Republicans are jubilant and Democrats are peevish and disappointed after last night's debate in Colorado.

Romney won the support of many Americans last night, both those who watched, and those who didn't watch but will simply hear this morning that he out-performed the great Obama.

And the biggest outcome from last night?  Money.  Dollars will come flowing into the Romney campaign and that may be more significant than Romney's performance.

The Grownups are Dying Off

As an adult, and by that I mean someone who takes responsibility for himself and his family, I look at this country and am amazed that the upcoming presidential election is even close.

But America is changing... The children are taking over through attrition.  And as the car rolls down the hill, all we adults can do is stick our legs out the door and drag our feet.

But we all know where it's going.  And even if we win this election, the future and its numbers are against us.
