We Should Not Forget
"It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of
speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who gives us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag."
~Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC
Just Who Is Henry Reid?
Besides the new Senate Minority Leader, that is. Because doesn't his predecessor, Tom Daschle, get his clock cleaned and booted out when on comes Henry Reid who, dear Lord, he looks like, well I'd go with an elder Harry Potter right off the top of my head. Various pundits have described Reid as resembling a small town undertaker and hey, it fits.
The absolute best description of Reid is presented below:
"Reid and Pelosi do not, to say the least, present an attractive face to America. As our friend Rich Miniter observed, Reid looked like a doctor who refuses to administer painkillers. As for Pelosi--who is known mostly for being more charming than Barbara Boxer--she stiffly stared at the camera with a deer-in-the-headlights look."

BWAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Snort, Snort. Fits the man perfectly.
We Couldn't Resist-More on Harry Reid
LITTLE BIG MAN
"Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid... seems determined to earn the description Teddy Roosevelt applied to President John Tyler -- 'a politician of monumental littleness'."

No 'Wardrobe Malfunction'; Just Pure Entertainment
"The half-time show last night was a dandy. . . . My brother-in-law said (and I agreed) that fireworks beat wardrobe malfunctions every time."
- Rich Galen on the Super Bowl halftime show featuring Paul McCartney, "Mullings,"
And Finally, More Massachusetts Nonsense
THE NEW, NEW MATH
"According to (Newton, Massachusetts public school system) math program, the top objective for the district's math teachers is to teach 'respect for human differences' and to 'live out the system-wide core value of respect for human differences by demonstrating anti-racist and anti-bias behaviors.' All of this, believe it or not, is to be taught in MATH class. . . . If you send your kids to government schools, they are going to be indoctrinated day in and day out with this type of nonsense. Perhaps you should look in the mirror and decide if you can live with yourself when you choose to send you kids off to schools like these."

I Just Couldn't Resist
And acknowledgement is hereby made that it's not the clearest picture in the world.
But when I saw my husband asleep with four cats surrounding him and hemming him in, well I had to take a picture.
It took some doctoring and obviously I had to use arrows and such to point out the many felines surrounding the sleeping man.
If ever an animal mastered the art of finding warm, cozy places to sleep, it would be yon housecat.
