Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

On this date in 1901, Teddy Roosevelt delivered his "speak softly but carry a big stick speech". Today's President it seems has his own version - "speak off the cuff and carry no stick at all"... Penzoil mentioning in their new commercial that they know you sometimes use your car as a "baby-maker" is kinda creepy... President George W Bush's policy regarding Syria was one of isolation. The mess today is due solely to President Obama with assists to Pelosi, Clinton, and Kerry... Very cool interview of Jack Handey... When Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech during the march on Washington - Charlton Heston was on stage next to him as one of his body guards. If Heston was alive today do you think he'd be allowed anywhere near the stage? Good enough for MLK but not good enough for today's crowd... The science behind Sarin Gas... Having a guy like David Petraeus who had "been there, done that" when it comes to the military would have been helpful to the Obama Administration right about now... Excellent behind the scenes look at ESPN's College Game Day... Saw a commercial that was basically about using the Snuggie as a sex aid. "When the kids go to bed - that's when we break out the Snuggie". Roger Sterling probably thought that one up when on LSD... Jack Handey's Guards' Complaints About Spartacus...
