HILLARY LAID IT ON THICK YESTERDAY I have to give it up to Hillary Clinton, she was masterful yesterday. She started by choking up talking about flag draped coffins, because men get all squishy when they see a woman gettin' all misty. Then when pressed about the Administration's blatant lies on the cause of the attack, she pounded the table and shouted out a forceful "What difference, at this point, does it MAKE?" It was her best Jack Nicholson moment
The part of the plucky Tom Cruise was played by Senator Ron Johnson, who was labelled a "pissant" by Chris Matthews for having the nerve to ask the questions people actually want to know the answer to. Our own Rand Paul kicked off his 2016 campaign by also asking tough questions. What's hilarious is watching the Left, especially the media, bend over backwards to declare Hillary Clinton the greatest Sec of State EVER (wonder how Madeleine Albright feels about that) and talk about she handled those mean men on the hill. NO intellectual curiosity displayed at all from the Left about why the Administration perpetuated a complete lie for weeks. None. But I guess when you are used to people lying all the time, this just gets added to the mix. NBD. Watch Rand Paul here.
SOMETHING OCCURRED TO ME LAST NIGHT I was reflecting back on yesterday's converstation with Congressman Brett Guthrie and his passionate explanation on how THIS TIME the GOP was really gonna stick it to the Democrats. THIS TIME it was gonna work. THIS TIME something was going to get done. And I realized the GOP has become the party of Wile E. Coyote...always coming up with some cockamamie scheme to get the Democrat Roadrunner, who always manages to both eat the bird seed AND get away. If it wasn't so important, it would be amusing. But it's not. It's sad. And if the party doesn't start to support rising stars like Rand Paul and Marco Rubio they will quickly become completely irrelevant. And if this is the GOP, I'm not sure that's a bad thing. Which makes me sad.
IF YOU'RE AGAINST THE LOCAL OPTION SALES TAX Good news, the Guvnah is for it, which means it won't happen. He's that kind of leader.
SOLDIER VOTES NEED TO COUNT But I have concerns about internet voting. Considering that financial services companies who spend more on internet security than anyone get hacked, I don't have a lot of confidence in this state (especially) providing the proper level of security for online voting. I'd need to be convinced. Seriously convinced.
WE DON'T NEED PERPETUAL WAR But someone forgot to tell North Korea. They are doing another missile test, this one aimed at us. Can't wait to see how this President handles this. What else can we do to North Korea in the way of sanctions? The people are starving, the economy is non existent. How do you persuade a complete lunatic? This should be interesting.
LEGO IS RACIST This story is so stupid I can't even believe it. Proving once again when you try to find a reason to be angry, you usually can.
I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN I got excited about the Common Core Standards. I've been lazy about actually looking into them. Luckily, Michelle Malkin is on it. And now I will be looking into them. But here is a good start on why we shouldn't be crowing about them just yet.
WOMEN IN COMBAT? The Pentagon has officially ended the ban on women in combat. Except women have been serving in positions in war zones that have been getting them killed for some time now. Much ado about nothing?
