Why I love Family Guy 

UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long - less than 24 hours, in fact. Apparently, the "72 virgins" gag draws legal action by 20th Century Fox, but all these other posted Family Guy vids are A-Ok. Can anyone say dhimmi?

The ROPO strikes again 

This story has been out for a few days now, but in case you've been living under a rock, a British school teacher in Sudan is being threatened by members of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage with at best imprisonment/at worst death for allowing her class of 7-year-olds to name a teddy bear Mohammed.

Yes, you read that right.

But slow down. There are always two sides to every story, right?
"We want to tell you that the majority of Sudanese are Muslims so we love our Prophet Mohammed so much and we decry this careless way of dealing with our beloved Prophet."
...27-year- old Elsheikh El Nour, added: "If she made an innocent mistake and did not mean Mohammed the Prophet (when naming the bear) there is no problem.

"But if she did mean Mohammed the Prophet, she must die."
See? Two sides.

Nevermind that "... a boy of seven came forward on Tuesday to say it was "all his fault", as he and his classmates at the Unity High School had voted to call the bear Mohammed after his own name." That's neither here nor there.

Can you even imagine the shitstorm that would occur if someone in a western nation was threatened with death for naming a teddy bear "Jesus"? Those doing the threatening would be universally condemned as thugs, belittled as cavemen, and torn apart in the press a fascist religious fanatics.

But do the same for Mohammed? Par for the course baby (even if we're a little hazy on exactly which Mohammed we're talking about).

I concur with one of the commenters at the linked story: "Send in the SAS."


After I wrote this, Gillian Gibbons was sentenced to 15 days in prison and deportation. Hopefully she makes it out of the country with her head still attached. Even then, she had probably make sure she maintains a low profile once back in the UK if she wants to avoid the Theo van Gogh treatment. They don't call it Londonistan for nothing.

Thank you captain obvious 

Your Inner European is Irish!

Sprited and boisterous!
You drink everyone under the table.

Yeah... didn't see that one coming. Not at all.

Tip o' the hat to Doc Russia, who's inner European was - shockingly - Russian.

Double whammy 

Once again living up to my original assessment (click my disclaimer on the sidebar), Bill Clinton proves he’s a jackhole.
Showing inconsistency on an issue that has dogged his wife, former President Bill Clinton told Iowa Democrats on Tuesday that he "opposed (war in) Iraq from the beginning."
Nevermind the fact that in the June 2004 issue of Time, he stated:
Think about it that way. So, you're sitting there as President, you're reeling in the aftermath of this, so, yeah, you want to go get bin Laden and do Afghanistan and all that. But you also have to say, Well, my first responsibility now is to try everything possible to make sure that this terrorist network and other terrorist networks cannot reach chemical and biological weapons or small amounts of fissile material. I've got to do that. That's why I supported the Iraq thing. There was a lot of stuff unaccounted for. So I thought the President had an absolute responsibility to go to the U.N. and say, "Look, guys, after 9/11, you have got to demand that Saddam Hussein lets us finish the inspection process." You couldn't responsibly ignore [the possibility that] a tyrant had these stocks. I never really thought he'd [use them]. What I was far more worried about was that he'd sell this stuff or give it away.
Of course, he tried to have it both ways even then, saying “I would not have done it until after Hans Blix finished his job” – which conveniently ignored the fact that Blix and his boys had been tossed out of Iraq repeatedly while Saddam played shell games with the weapons stocks that he had. Anyone who thought that Blix would ever actually get to finish inspecting anything was likely high on something.

As I drove to work this morning I was listening to Bill Bennett and a caller pointed out a brilliant bit of strategery that has yet to be tapped by either Democrats or Republicans: if Hillary wants to be treated like her years as First Lady are what qualify her for the job as President, then she should be held accountable for every policy decision that Bill ever made.

And this would probably be an even stronger move for the Democrat candidates than the Republicans. Imagine the feeding frenzy as Edwards, Obama, hell – even Kucinich – start questioning Hillary on why she didn’t fully support gay rights with her “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy for the military. What about when she signed the Defense of Marriage Act, another slap in the face to the gay rights movement? Or when she approved Operation Desert Fox after signing the Iraq Liberation Act in 1998, which called for Iraqi “regime change”? And – possibly most damning of all – how could she set the groundwork for the den of horrors known as Guantanamo by implementing “extraordinary rendition” of foreign nationals? Sure, Bill was the one who actually signed on the dotted line for every one of those (and many more issues) but if she wants the credit…

Remember, with the Clintons you get two presidents for the price of one.

I've never played World of Warcraft, but all that's about to change.

"Mike the Knight Elf Mohawk." I like the sound of that...

Shat plugs WoW as well, but the Mr. T spot is significantly cooler.

Update: Forget Warcraft. All I need is a Snickers.

A good man goes down Down Under 

Hopefully the new guy will be as America friendly and anti-jihadi as the last guy.

And just in case you don't remember: who the f@#k is John Howard?

"It's true: Iraq is a quagmire" 

"We're floundering in a quagmire in Iraq. Our strategy is flawed, and it's too late to change it. Our resources have been squandered, our best people killed, we're hated by the natives and our reputation around the world is circling the drain. We must withdraw.

No, I'm not channeling Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. I'm channeling Osama bin Laden, for whom the war in Iraq has been a catastrophe."

Back at it 

I notice that some of you gave me grief in the comments to the last post for celebrating the birthday early. I did so because I was going out of town and wasn't going to have access to the blog on the day. Here's a question though: why give me grief about it? Hell, by now you oughta know EVERY day around here is a celebration of the Corps. So, again, Happy Birthday!

Beware: I may say it again tomorrow...

There's hope... maybe... 

"Translation: Please don't boycott us, Bill O'Hannity, we're not trying to make G.I. Joe speak French."
You gotta see the picture with this...

Citizen Soldier 

Everybody's seen the video for "When I'm Gone" by now, but have you seen this?

I NEED to get to a 3 Doors Down concert. God, these guys rock. Recommend checking out the hi-def version of the vid here, where 49,999 of you (I already got mine) can also download the mp3 for free.
