Arnold's Speech - Excerpts

Because I actually have to work for a living and am all the way down here in old Mexico, I am happy to report that Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom provided these interesting excerpts from The Governator's speech tonight in New York City before the Republican National Convention:

A Protein Wisdom exclusive! 9 lines / phrases cut from the final draft of tonight's Arnold Schwarzenegger address to the RNC:

1. [...] unlike John Kerry, who couldn't lift one of Michael Moore's man boobies.
2. Am I the only one who thinks John Edwards looks like a woman?
3. Then Nancy Pelosi got drunk and tried to grab my enormous package.
4. How about those Bush twins in their little party dresses, eh? Does anybody else have a chubby?
5. And then there's Cruz Bustamante, who I pounded into paper and used to wipe my ass.
6. Because were Teresa my wife I would have given her a smack a long time ago. But then, I'm not a Massachusetts pussy, either.
7. I pick scabs with bigger balls than Terry Mcauliffe's.
8. [...] or as Adolph Hitler might say, "mein kampf."
9. I'll be back. and Hasta la vista, baby.

Interesting speech, I'd say.

OK, a-one and-a-two and Commence Whining!

From PoliPundit: "I expect they will be accusing the GOP of being behind the Swiftie ads, although I would think they would want to take advantage of the GOP convention to change the subject, however, Susan Estrich already brought this up on Brit Hume's show last night. She said that if Bush wins it will be an 'illegitimate victory' due to the Swift Boat Vet ads. "

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Wah.

(All new parents will recognize the aforementioned.)

And it's only August, and they haven't even lost the election...yet.

A Sailor Under Fire

This letter written in February, 1968 from John Kerry to his girlfriend puts into words all of the anguish and fear felt by a young naval officer under constant threat of death from enemy fire:
Judy Darling, There are so many ways this letter could become a bitter diatribe and go rumbling off into irrational nothings.... I feel so bitter and angry and everywhere around me there is nothing but violence and war and gross insensitivity. I am really very frightened to be honest because when the news [of the combat death of his college friend, Dick Pershing] sunk in I had no alternatives but to carry on in the face of trivia that forced me to build a horrible protective screen around myself....

The world I'm a part of out there is so very different from anything you, I, or our close friends can imagine. It's fitted with primitive survial, with destruction of an endless dying seemingly pointless nature and forces one to grow up in a fast - no holds barred fashion. In the small time I have been gone, does it seem strange to say that I feel as though I have seen several years experience go by.... No matter [where] one is - no matter what job - you do not and cannot forget that you are at war and that the enemy is ever present - that anyone could at some time for the same stupid irrational something that stole Persh be gone tomorrow.

In February, 1968, John Kerry was an Ensign aboard the missile frigate U.S.S. Gridley, at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, 6000 miles from Vietnam.I have always thought that the "whose turn is it in the barrel" thing was a joke. Apparently not. It was "whose turn is it behind the protective screen?" Some vicious sailors aboard the Gridley, no? And that downtown Honolulu? Hoooo boy! Duck and cover! Duck and cover!

No Illusions about why the French are so easy to hate

All one has to do is read this and one will understand why the French are beneath contempt. The best part;

June, 2004:
...Mr. Chirac described Iraq as a place where "disorder prevails," adding that he did not share Mr. Bush’s view that the liberation of Iraq from Mr. Hussein was comparable to the liberation of Europe from the Nazis. "History does not repeat itself," he sniffed.
August 28, 2004:
Mr. Chirac said nothing about the violence and terror in Iraq, except to say that the restoration of sovereignty was "merely the start of a long and what is proving to be an arduous and hazardous process. But at least we have embarked on it."
We? We? This reminds me of the old joke about the Lone Ranger and Tonto finding themselves surrounded by 1000 hostile Indians. The Lone Ranger turns to his faithful companion and says, "Well I guess we are finished, old friend." To which Tonto replies, "What you mean we, white man?"

That's right, what you mean we, Chirac, you pompous gasbag? We have a 1000 dead heroes (real heroes, Mr. Kerry) and you have none, because you, A. have no guts, B. have no moral compass, and C. have no real influence on day-to-day events in a world which long ago left you behind.

The more that I think about this, the more it pisses me off. With a few hardy exceptions, the cowards of the world are happy for Americans to shed blood to defend them. Like the old radio show, "Gunsmoke", we're the first they run to, but the last they want to meet. When they are in trouble, whom do they call? To whom do they run weeping for rescue? Whose money and blood are they willing to expend to extricate themselves from one self-inflicted disaster after another? And then, whom do they band against, call war mongers, call cowboys, call irresponsible, call Ugly Americans? Why, WE, of course.

Want more? Here's more.

The Victory of the French People : In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Paris, Le Monde has a special 8-page insert on Paris the Insurgent, the main article of which is called The Victory of the People and of the Tanks ("the people", as in "the people of France" or "the French people", not as in "person" in the plural).

In those eight pages, replete with photographs, there is not a single picture of an American (or a British) soldier (although one can spot American or British flags in a picture or two...

In the article The Men of August 25, there is not a single non-French allied leader mentioned (the four main "actors" being Charles de Gaulle, Philippe Leclerc, Rol-Tanguy, and Germany's Dietrich von Choltitz)

Of nine titles proposed in the suggested reading section, only two books concern the Allies as main characters, and one of those is in effect a book about the story of Robert Capa's D-Day pictures.

Not until the eighth and final page do we see articles concerning the United States, and they are ambivalent at best. The first concerns the common interests and the ambiguous relations between Paris and Washington, the second is an interview of historian Denis Peschanski, a research director at the CNRS, concerning the fact that "the way it was carried out, the liberation of Paris was not in the plans of General Eisenhower". Charles de Gaulle managed to change that, Dieu merci!
How many Americans, British, Australians and others died on French soil during WWII? WWI? Combined? And WE don't even get a mention from the sissified, pompous, self-rightous, sniffing French. They did not deserve our help then, now or in the future. But when they have again mired themselves in another scummy pukey cesspool of their own making, to whom will they run, shrieking for rescue? Why, to WE, of course. And will We ignore them and leave them to the fate which they deserve? No, WE won't. WE never have, WE don't, and WE won't. It wouldn't be...Christian.

Wow, that really jerked my chain, didn't it?

Not enough? OK, how about this?

June 5, 2004 (60th D-Day commemoration:
There is not a single American flag in Paris.

Not on the Champs-Élysées, not anywhere.

I don't care what the French think of Bush's policies. The minimum of respect would have been to put out the Stars and Stripes for the US president's arrival. It is not Bush who is arriving, it is the president of the United States.

The Champs-Élysées are filled with flags when any other leader arrives, no matter what their régimes' policies or what their leaders have done. They even turned the Eiffel Tower red...
Or this.The CSA polling company has released the results of a survey which found;
50% of the French public feel that France has no moral debt to the United States.
This opinion is shared by;
63% of those aged 18 to 24 years
58% of those 25 to 34
54% of those 35 to 49
48% of those 50 to 64
32% of those 65 and older.
Among the professions, farmers thought this in the greatest majority (62%) while retirees and the self-employed were the least likely to share this view (39%). The study also found that 82% of the French felt that France was sufficiently grateful to the US and that as little as 3% admire the US.

Worse yet, the Figaro reports in a survey it commissioned which finds that 82% of French feel that Germany is France's strongest ally while only 55% feel that the US is a trustworthy ally. Thirty-seven percent (and 61% of National Front, i.e. fascist, voters) now feel that Iraq is the country that threatens them most (a head of Iran and North Korea.)
I'm off, now, to strangle my cats.

Kerry's magic flying dog - VC - found by Mark in Mexico

The Washington Times reported:
In a 2004 presidential candidate questionnaire for Humane USA, Mr. Kerry was asked whether any pets have had an impact on his life.
"I have always had pets in my life, and there are a few that I remember very fondly," Mr. Kerry replied. "When I was serving on a Swift Boat in Vietnam, my crewmates and I had a dog we called VC. One day as our Swift Boat was heading up a river, a mine exploded hard under our boat," he continued. "After picking ourselves up, we discovered VC was MIA (missing in action). Several minutes of frantic search followed, after which we thought we'd lost him. We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing a dog." Said Mr. Kerry: "It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and landed, confused but unhurt, on the deck of another boat in our patrol."

No military records on Mr. Kerry's Web site, which aides say is a complete accounting, mention a mine exploding under his boat or any dog. The only report of a mine detonating "near" Mr. Kerry's PCF 94 was March 13, 1969, when Mr. Kerry says he was injured and a man knocked overboard.
Lucianne asks,"What, did this guy even lie about being a member of Triple A?

Lucianne, he most assuredly did not lie about VC, the magic flying dog. I know this because, after an exhaustive search of some 20 minutes duration, I have found the dog. See his photo below. I know it is VC, because the photo caption says so.

We have met the VC, and he is I. Posted by Hello

Steyn ON-LINE!

Mark Steyn, writing in The Telegraph, in Kerry: strange, stuck-up... and
, says the following;
Switch on the TV these days and you'll see John O'Neill, principal spokesman for the hundreds of Swift boat veterans who oppose their old comrade Kerry, talking calmly and patiently about the facts, citing chapter and verse and relevant footnotes, while some deranged interviewer is going berserk.

The other day it was CNN host James Carville, former skinhead-in-chief to Bill Clinton, yelling and howling all over O'Neill's answers before brushing him aside with, "I've got no use for this man."
And, in reference to Pat Oliphant's cartoon depicting Swiftboat vets spending their Viet Nam tours in latrine maintenance, he says;
Maybe he's got in mind fellows like Paul Galanti, who appears in the latest anti-Kerry ad and whose plane went down over North Vietnam in 1966. He was held in the "Hanoi Hilton" Viet Cong POW camp until 1973. That's seven years getting tortured by the gooks, only to be mocked by some lame-o cartoonist as a redneck latrine operator.
Commenting on Kerry's overall campaign stategy, he says;
Since I'm on an alliterative roll, let me add that he's too stupid to be President. What sort of idiot would make the centrepiece of his presidential campaign four months of proud service in a war he's best known for opposing?


And even if he'd never slimed his comrades, there's something ridiculous about a fellow with four months in Vietnam running as Ike, the Duke of Wellington and Alexander the Great rolled into one.


If this campaign were any more inept, Michael Moore would be making a documentary claiming Kerry's a Republican plant secretly controlled by Karl Rove and the House of Saud.
And beeeeeeeeg oil and ZionistIsraeliJewProtocols and Texasfundamentalists and fascistnaziBushhitlerbrownshirts,and per Goldstein, Abu Ghraib.

HMMM...This is very interesting

The Command Post says that Kerry's website has been revised this morning.

From the Boston Globe :

The Kerry campaign removed a 20-page batch of documents yesterday from its website after The Boston Globe quoted a Navy officer who said the documents wrongly portrayed Kerry’s service. Edward Peck had said he — not Kerry — was the skipper of Navy boat No. 94 at a time when the Kerry campaign website credited the senator with serving on the boat. The website had described Kerry’s boat as being hit by rockets and said a crewmate was injured in an attack. But Peck said those events happened when he was the skipper. The campaign did not respond to a request to explain why the records were removed.

Are someone's presidential aspirations beginning to crumble?

Who declared this "Jackson Family Day"? I thought I was in charge of this blog.

Surgeon used Jacko's ear to fix nose

Professor Werner Mang told how the superstar's nose was falling apart so badly by 1998 that he was called in to rebuild it with a piece of his ear.

'We decided that Michael Jackson, in reconstructive surgery of the nose, should get ear cartilage,' Professor Mang told American TV documentary-maker Daphne Barak.

'You make a cut on the skin of the ear and then you take out a big piece of the cartilage on the side. Then you make a cut on the nose and put the cartilage there. It's a wonderful material to reconstruct noses and repair them.'
Yeah, but you should see how his ears flap on a windy day.


DRUDGE REPORT says Janet Jackson now claims that her "Nipplegate" Super Bowl incident was used by the Bush administration to distract people from the war in Iraq!

Well, I was distracted....weren't you? Ann Althouse, you need not reply.

I am further enraged by his use of last year's World Series, the Stanley Cup Finals, The Laker's meltdown, the Enron investigation, Tiger Wood's slump, and his own daughters' graduation exercises to distract us. Tiger Wood's slump, too? Bushitler has no shame.
Kerry Reacts To Swiftboat Vets Accusations
Posted by Hello

When in deep shit, send in the lawyers. In a statement released to reporters, Kerry's campaign announced it had "filed a legal complaint against Swift Boat Veterans for Truth (SBVT) before the Federal Election Commission (FEC) for violating the law with inaccurate ads that are illegally coordinated with the Bush-Cheney presidential campaign."

This is, of course, hilarious.

From the Newsmax Subgroup, Today's News Group, News of the Day Division, Underdepartment of Hilarity, Department of Where the hell is our money going?

Federal Bureaucracy Creep

The Washington Post notes one way that federal bureaucrats have been able to grow their numbers -- they simply create more titles.

In the past few decades, Uncle Sam has accumulated untold numbers of these: "deputy associate deputy secretary," "deputy assistant assistant secretary" and "principal deputy deputy assistant secretary."

from Newsmax
From the "Why didn't I think of that" Department


the "I would have-could have-should have said that" Department

"And to you sir, may I ask, don't you see the irony of the Democrats using 'restore trust' as their slogan. Did you not see their lineup of speakers?

"Let's count: we had Ted Kennedy, who lied about trying to save Mary Jo Kopechne. We had Hillary Clinton, who lied about her billing records, about her commodities trading prowess, about kissing Arafat's wife right after Arafat accused the Israelis of poisoning Palestinian children. We had Al Sharpton, of Tawana Brawley fame, who later incited an anti-Semitic riot in Harlem with fatal consequences--funny how you blindly embrace these leaders of liberty, isn't it?

"And then we had your sweetheart, President Clinton, who never saw a big hairdo or a little lie he couldn't resist. We had John Edwards, who made his fortune convincing juries of the evils of doctors, and finally, Kerry himself, who is living the biggest lie of all--marrying rich, then richer, and feigning empathy for the downtrodden as he jets from home to home to home. Are those the men and women in who's hands and hearts you want to place, if not restore, trust?"

Read all of it. It's good, trust me. But he left out the Hildabeast's most hilarious lie of all, how she got her name (she claimed that her mother named her after the famous Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man to scale Mount Everest, when, in fact, she was born several years before his feat, when he was still an anonymous beekeeper in New Zealand).

The Story of the Hat

I never go anywhere without my magic hat, just like John Kerry. However, my magic hat is much too large to fit in a secret compartment in my black valise, or any compartment, for that matter. Therefore, I must carry it secretly hidden away in a Maytag side-by-side refrigerator shipping box, which I am never without.

This hat was a gift given to me by Pancho Villa himself, during a top secret "black ops" dropoff up the Blue Nile. This type of dangerous secret mission is usually not referred to as "drop off", but Pancho objected to using the word "insertion", especially when it was just he and I alone on the river.

This operation took place in 1942, on direct orders of then president Andrew Johnson, and we had been given this assignment in spite of the constant threat of hostile fire from members of the American Expeditionary force, under the command of Gen. Anthony Wayne, who had been sent there by President Andrew Jackson. Complicating matters more was the neverending danger of wounds by the ever present rose thorns, which had also been sent by President Jefferson.

I must warn you that all parties "in the know" about this assignment will deny all knowledge of it, including President Hayes, Gen. Xerxes, Col. Doolittle, King Herod, Col. Custer (deceased), Peter Pan as well as Zapata himself, who, as I mentioned above, gave me the hat.

In fact, if you are reading this, I'll have to kill you. POW!

Update: This memory is, of course, seared, seared into my memory.

It's The Movie, Stupid!

Rent, if you don't have a copy, "Apocolypse Now" or "Apololypse Now, Redux". Now, before viewing it, make the following list.
1. Shooting up a sampan on the river.
2. Minor shrapnel wounds to various crewmembers
3. USO show in the middle of nowhere.
4. Illegal crossing of Cambodia border by boat.
5. Black Op insertion of a CIA agent
6. General mayhem at night at the border (Christmas Eve Shoot'em up)

Now, pop in the movie and place a check mark beside each item on the list as you see it occur in the movie. Notice when the movie concludes that all 6 items on your list are checked.

What an incredible coincidence that John Kerry's remembrances of his four (4) months' service in Viet Nam so closely parallel the movie.

What's next, dinner with Kurtz?
On Krugman:

Now Paul Krugman is smarter than Alan Greenspan!

What a truly rat-faced little weasel he is.

O'Reilly (the quasi-murderer) put him in his place. I seriously doubt that Mr. Krugman will be appearing in any more debates soon with Kill Bill.

Sunday, August 08, 2004


Captain's Quarters has a complete copy of Swiftboat vet's legal answer to the threatening letter sent out to radio and TV stations by Kerry's attorneys. Note that the letter addresses each claim made in the commercial, point-by-point, followed by sworn affidavits and other evidence, names, dates, congressional records, Kerry's own words, etc.. This is as opposed to the Kerry lawyers' letter, which simply stated "pack of lies".

One of the Captain's commenters, who says he is an attorney, notes that the exhaustive detail of the Swiftboat vet's response indicates that they anticipated and were well prepared for the Kerry legal gambit and are, no doubt, several steps ahead of Kerry's legal team on this.

Another commenter asks the simple question, "Why not simply release his service records to clear all this up?"

Indeed. We'll wait.

Dave Barry finds Kerry's message.
"Making America Stronger through the Strength of Strongness."
And while he was at it, he discovered the Democrat's message, also.
SPEAKER: . . . and THAT, my fellow Democrats, is why we must defeat this lying fascist criminal war-mongering scum-sucking vermin toad, who, in the interest of remaining positive, I am not going to mention by name.

Ponce de Leon was right!

The Quixotic search for the mythical Fountain of Youth by Ponce de Leon ended in failure. However, its existence has now been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by El Duque, Orlando Hernandez of the New York Yankees. Given up for dead just two years ago by the Montreal Expos, El Duque underwent rotator cuff surgery, then went to Florida where he found the Fountain of Youth so desperately sought by de Leon.

El Duque just shut out, that's right, shut out the Toronto Bluejays to hike his record to 4-0, with the Bombers winning all six of his starts. His ERA, which was hovering around 3.00, will surely dip below that into the rarified atmosphere (for a 95-year old starting pitcher) of 2.90+/-.

His age is reportedly either 45 or 55 or 95, depending on which forged immigration document you wish to quote. Two years ago, he couldn't bend over to pick up his morning newspaper without requiring physical therapy to be able to straighten back up by noon. Now, he mows'em down like Randy Johnson, or Walter Johnson, or maybe Charles Johnson (the LGF CJ, not the catcher CJ). Roger who? Never heard of'im. Expect to see Ernie Banks return at any time.

Kerry's Secret Plan Exposed

Allah asks, "Is Kerry a moron? Or is he an evil genius chimp moron who wants to turn our soldiers into terrorists?"
We will add 40,000 active duty troops – not in Iraq, but to strengthen American forces that are now overstretched, overextended, and under pressure. We will double our special forces to conduct terrorist operations.
Hell of an idea. Send the Special Forces to start blowing up mosques, tombs, Muslims! That does it. I'm votin' for'im!
Hit them first, or wait to be hit?

9/11 Commission Report: "Once the danger has fully materialized, evident to all, mobilizing action is easier--but then it may be too late."

Kerry-Edwards book, "Our Plan for America: Stronger at Home, Respected in the World": The book's main text has one reference to pre-emption: "And his (Bush) doctrine of unilateral pre-emption has driven away our allies and cost us the support of other nations."

Driven away what allies and cost us the support of whom? No one about whom we should give a damn. We are supported in Iraq and Afghanistan by the likes of Australia, Japan, South Korea, Great Britain, Italy, Poland, Russia and many, many others.

As for those who do not support us, so what? Is France our ally, or is France our rival? France ceased to be our ally when DeGaulle marched into liberated Paris at the head of Free French forces (who did little to liberate it). France became our dependent, just as the rest of whimpering Europe did, protecting them from the Soviet bear. France ceased to be our dependent when the bear crashed and became our rival. Who cares? France was a useless ally in WWI, WWII and during the Cold War, effective only at blowing up isolated Pacific atolls and the occasional Greenpeace boat.

Gawd! Would I like to see someone with real international stature stand up and repeat what I just wrote. Rudy? Rummy? Slick Willy? (heh heh, just kidding, might hurt book sales). Joe Lieberman? John McCain? (naw, he's too busy trying to defend Kerry from a gathering avalanche). Who? Well, there is no one, I guess. Maybe Dennis Miller? Oops, he already has, repeatedly. It needs to be done, even if privately, by Colin Powell.
"Look, you guys (France, Germany, Belgium, Saudi Arabia, et al), we know and you know and we know that you know and you know that we know that you know that, in the end, you are irrelevant. We strike when we strike, where we strike and at whom we strike. Do not interfere in any way. Got it? Have a nice day."

This is starting to heat up, folks.

This from The Drudge Report:
The following statement from Swift Boat Veterans for Truth concerns an article appearing in morning edition of the BOSTON GLOBE, written by GLOBE reporter and author of the official Kerry-Edwards campaign book, Mike Kranish.

"Captain George Elliott describes an article appearing in today’s edition of the BOSTON GLOBE by Mike Kranish as extremely inaccurate and highly misstating his actual views. He reaffirms his statement in the current advertisement paid for by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Captain Elliott reaffirms his affidavit in support of that advertisement, and he reaffirms his request that the ad be played.

“Additional documentation will follow.

"The article by Mr. Kranish is particularly surprising given page 102 of Mr. Kranish’s own book quoting John Kerry as acknowledging that he killed a single, wounded, fleeing Viet Cong soldier whom he was afraid would turn around.

"Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has more than 250 supporters who are revealing first hand, eyewitness accounts of numerous incidents concerning John Kerry’s military service record. The organization will continue to discuss much of what John Kerry has reported as fact concerning his four-month tour of duty in Vietnam."

Current status: The Swift Boat vets have released an ad for their book which sounds devastating. The DNC and Kerry '04 lawyers have sent out a fax to hundreds of TV and radio stations which, in effect, threatens legal action against any station that airs or continues to air the ad for the book. The book is #1 on Amazon and has not yet been released. The Boston Globe reported this morning that George Elliott, one of the Swift Boat vets has retracted his story. The Swift Boat vets respond (above).

This is going to be as nasty as it gets. The story is all over the blogoshere and, I believe will destroy Kerry. Keep in mind the following; Richard Clarke, Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame and Michael Moore have all been shown to be liars (with documented proof, eyewitness accounts and even in their own words). The Bush-lied gambit has been shown to be patently false. The Bush-AWOL gambit cannot be proven, either by available documents nor by one single eyewitness (in fact, all eyewitnesses, including an ex-girlfiend, all pretty much agree that he was there and active): The economy is roaring, Iraq is democratizing itself, Afghanistan is democratizing itself, the murdering Islamists have not been able to strike us again, and a poll released today shows that 90% of Vietnamese-Americans support GW.

In "Mexico angry over border weapons - (United Press International)", the Washington Post says,
"The Secretariat of Foreign Relations directed the Mexican ambassador to the United States in Washington to demand an explanation from the State Department and Department of Homeland Security on Thursday on the use of pepper balls along the border."
The Post goes on to explain,
"A pepper ball is a projectile containing a powdered chemical that hurts the eyes and nose. The U.S. Border Patrol uses an air-powered device similar to a paint-ball gun to launch the pepper balls that burst on impact."
However, it would appear that Pres. Vicente Fox and Pres. Bush agreed to implement this program some time ago.
"One component of the plan was the initiation of a pilot program on the use of non-lethal weapons by Border Patrol agents to reduce incidents of aggression against Border Patrol agents, prevent assaults against migrants and border authorities, and deter migrant detentions by civilians. The use of the pepper-ball launch system in the place of firearms is one outgrowth of the initiative."
Let's see if I understand this correctly. Mexican citizens, whose weak and corrupt governments over the past 180 years have been and remain unable and unwilling to provide them with economic, health or educational opportunity nor physical security, violate American law and sovereignty. Then, when confronted by our law enforcement officers, attack those officers with stones, clubs, knives and guns. Now come representatives of that weak and corrupt government to demand that we desist from using this non-lethal means to protect our citizens and law enforcement officers. OK, go with the ACP.
