That's Just Biden Being Biden

"I was shot at while in Iraq." No, that's no Hillary telling her tall tale again, that's Joe Biden last year.
Number one, you take all the troops out - you better have helicopters ready to take those 3,000 civilians inside the Green Zone, where I have been seven times and shot at.
Only thing is, like Clinton, Biden wasn't exactly shot at. We was in a building near a building that was attacked. Then there's another Bidenism where he made it seem like a helicopter he was riding in over Afghanistan was forced down by enemy fire. But it was only the weather.

The Debate

I didn't watch the debate, but I did catch a few minutes of it. And from the few minutes that I watched I saw that John McCain was calm, cool and collected and Obama was impatient, angry and couldn't wait to butt in on Sen. McCain's time. I don't have a winner.

Slow Internet

My connection has been extremely slow the past few days. I'm barely able to get pages to load most of the time. So if I disappear for a while you'll know why.

I called my ISP and things seem to working now, but I've learned never to celebrate too early because when it comes to computers things can go wonky real quick.

I began having trouble again yesterday. When I called my ISP they told me that they heard some static on their end of the line and that's what may have been causing my trouble. So I called my phone company this morning and they're going to send someone out by Monday 5pm to check my line out. No hurry. But I've noticed that these past two mornings, today included, that my connection seems to work fine. It's in the evening that problems seem to arise. Not sure if that means anything.

Marine Sues John Murtha

Now, less than six weeks before the longtime Johnstown Democrat is up for re-election, a Marine involved in the now-infamous Haditha incident is suing Murtha for slander.
This is actually the second lawsuit against Rep. Murtha pertaining to what he said about the Marines. The first one is still ongoing. I'm not sure whether these lawsuits will go anywhere, but HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. John Murtha is an ass who should be tared and feathered. He had zero evidence and yet he had already found these men guilty. What a loser.

The Bailout

I don't agree with the bailout. It's not the government's job to save us from ourselves. But what this situation does point out is the difference between McCain and Obama. John McCain is the man who said "I'd rather lose an election than a war". And, with that philosophy in mind, he took a huge gamble and suspended his campaign to go back to Washington and do what the people of Arizona elected him to do. Work for them. This could cost him the election but he's doing what's right. Obama won't. For McCain, it's Country First. For Obama, it's Power First.

Can It Be True?

A Washington Post columnist has done the unthinkable. She's taken a look at Obama and come to the conclusion that he's not being honest. This is a no-no in her circle. I would love to read someone the emails she's going to get because of this piece.

But there is one argument I have to make. While she does call Obama out on the Limbaugh ad, she neglects to tell us that the entire thing was a comedy bit Rush did and he was talking about Mexico's immigration laws. Now this might be in the link that's provided in the article, but it doesn't seem to want to load for me.

Gov. Palin Could Be Gang-Raped

Bush Derangement Syndrome(BDS) hit it's all time high back around the election of '04. And it got pretty bad some of the things that were said about him. But I don't think BDS can't hold a candle to Palin Derangement Syndrome(PDS). Some of the things said about Gov. Palin have been just plain sick. And now we have the latest from "Comedienne" Sandra Bernhard*. Calling her a "whore" and "turncoat bitch" and saying that she should stay out of Manhattan because she could be gang-raped by her, Bernhard's, big black brothers.

On a recent episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher", fellow "Comedienne" Janeane Garofalo said the following about Republicans,
They have become a party of small minded, very petty, mean... unrestrained id. The unrestrained id.
Liberals are the one's who have, in the last ten years or so, become the most hateful, intolerant, bigoted, close minded asshole son's of bitches on the planet. If you don't agree with them you're a racist or a homophobe or a Nazi or a warmonger or the anti-Christ and you should be jailed or worse. Tolerant my fat, hairy ass.

Bless Their Little Heart

Why do you think the presidential race is so close? Well, CNN's Jack Cafferty tells us why he thinks it is.
The differences between Barack Obama and John McCain couldn't be more well-defined. Obama wants to change Washington. McCain is a part of Washington and a part of the Bush legacy. Yet the polls remain close. Doesn't make sense…unless it's race.
That's right. We don't support Obama because he's a community organizer. No matter how many times it's said, I get a kick out of stupidity like this.

We have what may be the best anti-Palin article ever written by the CBC's Heather Mallick. It may be the most intolerant , close minded, bigoted piece of bile written since the screenplay for "Birth Of A Nation".
She added nothing to the ticket that the Republicans didn't already have sewn up, the white trash vote...

It's possible that Republican men, sexual inadequates that they are...

John Doyle, the cleverest critic in Canada, comes right out and calls Palin an Alaska hillbilly.

Palin has a toned-down version of the porn actress look favoured by this decade's woman.

Bristol has what is known in Britain as the look of the teen mum, the "pramface." Husband Todd looks like a roughneck; Track, heading off to Iraq, appears terrified. They claim to be family obsessed while being studiously terrible at parenting. What normal father would want Levi "I'm a fuckin' redneck" Johnson prodding his daughter?

When Palin and Rudy Giuliani sneered at Obama's years of "community organizing" — they said it like "rectal fissure" — the audience ewww-ed with them. Republicans dream of a personal future that involves only household staff, not equals who need to be persuaded to vote.
Can you imagine the monumental backlash if someone were to write a piece like this about Obama?

On September 15, 2003 I posted my first post on this blog. Back then it was called "Powerage Rambles On", taken from my favorite AC/DC album. I no longer have that post as I've posted over with my Album Of The Month post, but it was about Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck breaking up and wondering how I was going to go on with life. I want to say that there was another name for the blog before I came up with Right-Wing & Right Minded, but I'm not sure. I briefly went over to another blogging site a couple of years ago because Blogger was having big problems and I couldn't get anything to work. It only lasted a few months then I came back and have stayed here ever since.

Over these past five years I've had a lot of fun and a lot of frustration doing this blog. Made friends, some of who still come around everyone once in a while and others who've moved on, and had fights with truly stupid people. It's been kind of humbling to think that the views and opinions of this nobody hick from Oklahoma are being read, and sometimes enjoyed, by people from all over the world. Who knows what the future holds for me and this blog. I may pack it up next month or I may be celebrating my 10 year blogiversary in 2013.

She Likes 'Em Young

"she's friends with all the teenage boys". What? What does that mean? I know what I take it to mean. Some will agree and some won't. That's up to you. But considering who said it, it sounds like she may be referring to something inappropriate. Rhodes has said in the past that McCain was treated well in Vietnam, she's faked a mugging to cover up falling while drunk, she's joked about killing President Bush "Like Fredo, somebody ought to take him out fishing and phuw" and has called Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro "fu**ing whores".

Is The Obamassiah A Hypocrite?

We've heard time and time again from the Obama camp that we need to get back to the issues in this election. So, what's the first thing they do? They release an ad calling McCain computer illiterate. Because, as everyone knows, knowing how to work Windows Vista is a prerequisite for being President of the United States.
Obama spokesman Dan Pfeiffer said the campaign was not making an issue of the 72-year-old McCain's age, but the time he's spent in Washington
And how long has Joe Biden been in Washington again?

Jonah Goldberg has a piece up about this on National Review. In it he explains that maybe the Obama campaign maybe should have done a little research into as to why McCain doesn't know how to use a computer.
The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country.

Well, You Told Her

Pam Anderson, who's looked like a crack addicted tranny ever since she left "Home Improvement", has given Gov. Sarah Palin a piece of her mind. Not that she could spare that much.
The reporter asked Pam if she saw a recent Newsweek article, which showed a gigantic bear hide in the office of Palin's house.

"I can't stand her," Pam blurted out. "She can suck it!"
Well, she'd know a thing or two about "sucking it", wouldn't she. This is why celebrities shouldn't try to dabble in politics. They just come off sounding even more stupid than they really are. They're much better when they stick to lines written for them rather than try and think for themselves.

7 Years Later

Never forget those that died that day and those that fight and die today to ensure that this never happens again.

I don't know if any of these ignorant "9/11 Truthers" read this blog, but just in case some do, may I just say go to hell. You are, hands down, the stumpiest people on planet Earth. How anyone could think that the attacks on September 11 were done by our government just so they could invade Iraq is beyond me. But then again I have an IQ higher than 60.

While it's obvious that Obama's joke about "lipstick on a pig" was a shot at Gov. Palin, bulldog/lipstick-pig/lipstick, he wasn't calling her a pig. It was a bad attempt to hit McCain and his "Bush 3rd term" policies. But that's not what this post is about. This post is about whether or not the Obama campaign stole the quip or not. Here's what Obama said,
John McCain says he’s about change too. Exce- and and so I guess his whole angle is - watch out, George Bush - except for economic policy, healthcare policy, tax policy, education policy, foreign policy, and Karl-Rove-style politics, we’re really gonna shake things up in Washington.

That’s not change.

That’s that’s just callin’ sumpin’ the same thing somethin’ different.

But you know, you can’t, you know, you you can put, ah, lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig.
Now take a look at this cartoon done four days before Obama made the comment.
Very similar. Is Obama becoming the next Ward Churchill or Jason Blair?

He Won Me Over

At the beginning of this election cycle there were two candidates I supported. Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee. I would have loved for either one of them to have won the nomination. And there was one candidate that I didn't support. John McCain. I felt he had abandoned the GOP and there was no way I was, or could, vote for him. But I did prefer him over Obama. Barack Obama is the wrong man for the job at any time, but especially today. I was going to sit this election out. But things started to change about a month ago. I started to listen to what McCain had to say and I kind liked it. But I still didn't support him. The experience factor started to really play into this election for me. And McCain trumps Obama handily on that. I started to consider what was really at stake in this election. Who could better lead this country in the many fights we had before us. I was starting to like John McCain. Then last week he made his choice for V.P. Typical McCain, he threw a curveball and chose someone that the vast majority outside of her state had never heard of. Someone who, like McCain, had stood up to her own party when she saw something she didn't like. A true Conservative. And not only did I start to like him, I started to find myself supporting him. Then she took to the stage on Wednesday and blew everyone away. She laid out who Sarah Palin was and what she stood for. By now I'm excited about this election for the first time. Then John McCain took the stage. And gave one of the best political speeches I've ever heard. And during that speech realized that John McCain hadn't abandoned the GOP. The GOP had abandoned us. They've gone from the party that opposed slavery and championed civil rights to the party that's supported MASSIVE governmental waste and turning a deaf ear to our concerns. John McCain is the man to fix what is wrong with out political system. Everyone says they want bipartisan government, but talk is cheap. John McCain has proven that he can do it. So, I have now made up my mind. I will support John McCain and I will vote for him come November. And I will do so without a doubt in my mind that he is the right man and is exactly what this country needs.
I'm not running for president because I think I’m blessed with such personal greatness that history has anointed me to save our country in its hour of need.

My country saved me. My country saved me, and I cannot forget it. And I will fight for her for as long as I draw breath, so help me God.

My friends, if you find faults with our country, make it a better one. If you’re disappointed with the mistakes of government, join its ranks and work to correct them. Enlist…

Enlist in our Armed Forces. Become a teacher. Enter the ministry. Run for public office. Feed a hungry child. Teach an — an illiterate adult to read. Comfort the afflicted. Defend the rights of the oppressed.

Our country will be the better, and you will be the happier, because nothing brings greater happiness in life than to serve a cause greater than yourself.

I’m going to fight for my cause every day as your president. I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank him, that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on Earth. And with hard work — with hard word, strong faith, and a little courage, great things are always within our reach.

Fight with me. Fight with me.

Fight for what’s right for our country. Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.

Fight for our children’s future. Fight for justice and opportunity for all.

Stand up to defend our country from its enemies. Stand up for each other, for beautiful, blessed, bountiful America.

Stand up, stand up, stand up, and fight.

Nothing is inevitable here. We’re Americans, and we never give up.

We never quit.

We never hide from history. We make history.

Big Hit

there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers, and then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change
If you watched the RNCC last night, you saw Gov. Palin blow the roof off the Xcel Energy Center. Since being announced just last week she's breathed a new life into McCain's campaign and the race in general. And the elite media have no idea how to handle it. They're forced to criticize her daughter and her hair.
This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory," except when he’s talking about his own campaign.
And she did what the job of the VP is at the convention. She ripped Obama and his Karl Marx style of politics apart. Great speech. Right up there with Fred Thompson and Rudy, who gave two of the best political speeches I've ever heard. Now it's up to McCain to seal the deal. He's going to have to tell the country why Obama's bigger government presidency will send this country into even further demise and how he plans to lift us back up to where we know we can be.
Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America’s energy problems, as if we didn’t know that already. Starting in January, in a McCain-Palin administration, we’re going to lay more pipelines, and build more nuclear plants, and create jobs with clean coal, and move forward on solar, wind, geothermal, and other alternative sources. We need American sources of resources. We need American energy brought to you by American ingenuity and produced by American workers.

More Iraq Progress

...this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq
Sen. Harry Reid
American forces on Monday handed over security responsibility to the Iraqis in a province that the U.S. once feared was lost — a sign of the stunning reversal of fortunes since local Sunnis turned against al-Qaida in Iraq.
This whole notion that the surge is working is fantasy
