OK. I Promise To Kiss Israel’s Ass

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Former Sen. Chuck Hagel’s (R-NE) confirmation hearing yesterday before the Senate Armed Service Committee was vicious. Old, cold-warriors – champions of America’s failed foreign policy in the Mideast – were led by head hawk John McCain (R-AZ.)

Crazy John, who worshipped George Bush and gave us Sarah Palin, doesn’t know of any armed conflict including Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan in which the US should not have been involved.  He accused Hagel of not being strong enough on Israel and not threatening enough on Iran.  McCain’s an albatross around the neck of anyone who suggests new ideas for our interventionist foreign policy.

What’s ironic is both Hagel and McCain are decorated Vietnam war veterans. What’s different is Hagel believes it’s now time to reassess the mistakes of our past and question why virtually every 3rd world country on earth hates the United States. Obviously he’s grown and matured a lot since Vietnam.

McCain has spent too much time in the Arizona sun.  He’s half-baked.

Beer Run

It's not like I wasn't coming back.

Timothy Bonner, 40, was being processed for assault in a Washington, Pa. police station and kept in a holding cell. Somehow he knocked the cell door off its hinges and escaped.

To celebrate his freedom, Bonner made a quick trip to nearby Ricky’s Bar and asked Robert Smith to buy him a beer because he had just escaped from jail.  Smith bought him the beer but police arrived before he got to drink it.

“He asked me to buy him a beer, so I bought him a beer. He didn’t even get to take a drink of it before they slammed him on the bar,” Smith said. “He was only here a few minutes before police showed up.”

Officials said Bonner is now facing additional charges, and remains in the Washington County Jail on $10,000 bond.
