A Southern woman on the 'Net.

Saturday, January 31, 2004


In Wurtzburg, Germany, Paul Wolfowitz had to listen to nonsense like this:

Bonnie McCarty said her husband is preparing for a yearlong tour of duty in Iraq. "When he comes back, does this mean in another year he's going to go back again because the size of the Army isn't big enough?" McCarty asked Wolfowitz. "We don't want to keep going through this."

I'm sure the woman's husband is mortified.

I would have liked Paul to remind her of a few things: The Army could always turn Germany into an unaccompanied tour and just ship all the families back stateside; Had she considered the spouses of sailors? How often are sailors home?; Her mouth is a good example of why hundred-mile-an-hour tape was invented; and U.S. Army spelled backwards is "Yes, my retarded ass signed up".


One more reason I don't like John Kerry


From now on, when anyone blames me for something, I'm going to say I was eating pears in the barn.

Steve Irwin must have taken his cue from Florida's Ross Allen.


The Black Widow wins another title.

Dag, that's one exuberant celebration.


Janet Jackson's got some goiters growing on her neck. Sad. I blame George Bush and the lack of universal health care.


Nathan over at Southern Appeal links to a comic post about Howard Dean and the Rebel Yell.
I was reminded of Allen Sullivant's post on the Yell many years ago that has stuck with me. "Vicksburg... Vicksburg..."


Andrew Gilligan, the BBC reporter who told lies about Tony Blair and caused a lot of trouble, has resigned.

Glad to see the media being held accountable for some of the junk they publish.


Melanie Griffith's starting to remind me of Jocelyne Wildenstein.

Now Kerry's saying he didn't say it:

The debate opened with Kerry being asked about comments to the effect that Democrats put too much focus on winning Southern states.

``I never said that,'' he responded. ``I never said Democrats made a mistake.''

But in a recent town-hall meeting in New Hampshire, Kerry talked about how Democrat Gore could have become president by winning even one more non-Southern state. ``Everybody always makes the mistake of looking South,'' he said.

Trying to explain that remark in advance of the South Carolina primary Tuesday, Kerry said in the debate that he had just been making a mathematical point about Gore's campaign.


Everyday I try very hard not to be mean like Ann Coulter.

She was the girl in school who would peg you with rocks and laugh. She's also very funny.

For over 30 years, Kerry's primary occupation has been stalking lonely heiresses. Not to get back to his combat experience, but Kerry sees a room full of wealthy widows as "a target-rich environment." This is a guy whose experience dealing with tax problems is based on spending his entire adult life being supported by rich women. What does a kept man know about taxes? ...

Kerry is like some character in a Balzac novel, an adventurer twirling the end of his mustache and preying on rich women. This low-born poseur with his threadbare pseudo-Brahmin family bought a political career with one rich woman's money, dumped her, and made off with another heiress to enable him to run for president. If Democrats want to talk about middle-class tax cuts, couldn't they nominate someone who hasn't been a poodle to rich women for the past 33 years?


This should cheer us all up after that devastating blow. It's the Million-Dollar Quartet: Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, and Johnny Cash.


The sky is crying, look at the tears rolling down the streets.

A hideous event, of which I will not speak, occured in Melbourne, Australia today.

Forget the South, Democrats

For 40 years, the Democratic Party begged Southern Democrats to return to the fold. Always undignified, this pleading eventually become futile as well, like Shirley Booth calling for her dead puppy in Come Back, Little Sheba. Now John Kerry, winner of the New Hampshire primary, is taking some heat for saying so. But it's about time somebody did.

I'm feeling very slighted...
Wait, I've gotten over it. I just remembered an old story I learned in school.

The author of the article thinks we're bad folks. I guess we'll have to keep on living... and deciding what Democrat, if any, gets through the door of the White House.


It's time for the Wednesday Duane Allman pic. Wail on, Skydog!

It's the new sign


As had to happen, there's a Steve Irwin game out. He wants you to feed his bee-yoooo-tiful crocs with a non-endangered species - babies.

Cledus gets in some licks

Judd also thrashed the Dixie Chicks for their negative statements about George W. Bush. The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Mains recently wore a shirt at an awards show that said "FUTK," badmouthing fellow country music star Toby Keith. Judd twisted the acronym around, saying it stood for "Found Underneath Table Kneeling." He then contributed a song called "Natalie," in the tune of "Celebrity" by Brad Paisley, mocking the Dixie Chicks' lead singer.

That song was pretty much about Natalie anyways.


In the Miami Herald today is a good article about the Orlando Customs official I'd mentioned earlier who had denied entry to one of Atta's hijackers.

I wish everyone had have been on the ball like this guy. Atta was allowed in on the wrong visa.


Ending the democracy deficit in the Muslim world

DESPITE encouraging signs, it is impossible to ignore a 'democracy deficit' in the Muslim world, especially the Arab part of it. Only one out of every four countries with Muslim majorities has a democratically elected government.


Picking on the poor ol' Boy Scouts again. God forbid there be any Freedom of Association.

According to the Georgia for Dean site, Dean is right out of Whitman:

"I too am not a bit tamed -- I too am untranslatable;
I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world."

No mention of the spotted hawk's complaining of Dean's gabbing and loitering.


Wesley Clark gets the crucial Ronald McDonald endorsement


Democrats' next stop: Land of God and flag

Good article from the Chicago Tribune. Use laexaminer for login and password.


"Once upon a time, the most successful Democratic leader of them all, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, looked South and said, 'I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished.' Today, our national Democratic leaders look South and say, 'I see one-third of a nation and it can go to hell.'"

-Senator Zell Miller, Democrat, Georgia



John Kerry has written off the South and he's talking about it.

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., is discounting notions that any Democratic candidate would have to appeal to Southern voters in order to win the presidency, calling such thinking a "mistake" during a speech at Dartmouth College.

That's alright. There's a handsome Republican gentleman over there who says he'd travel across the dry and dusty desert just to look at our pretty eyes.

Hero Builders has a new action figure- the Mean Dean doll.
Some excerpts from the talking doll:

White folks in the south that drive pickup trucks with confederate flag decals in the back ought to be voting with us and not them.

The capture of Saddam has not made America safer.


We're going to South Carolina and Oklahoma, Arizona, and North Dakota, and New Mexico. And we're going to California and Texas and New York. And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan! And then we're going to Washington, D.C., to take back the White House! unrecognizable howl


The troops in Afghanistan have made their own Starbucks.
It'd be nice if the company donated coffee beans to them, but I wouldn't hold my breath. These are the people who on 9/11 charged rescue workers for water at Ground Zero.


MTV has a collection of seven Howard Dean remixes. (Scroll down, right-hand side) My favorite's "Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train (Dean's Aboard)".


Of course it does

"My ambition may be American, and I may have married a Brit, but my heart belongs to France," Madonna told Spears and the crowd.



Islamic Scholar: Women driving cars is a sinful thing

This is why I loved driving my deuce in Saudi Arabia.
I remember before we went over, there was a female professor there whose family helped her stage a protest against the driving ban. The protest was that they were going to go to a public place and she was going to get in a car and drive. They were arrested, and her students broke into her office at the university and trashed it.
