Kiki On WWI

Here's Kiki Couric on today's anniversary of the American entry into World War I.

Did you catch that?

Listening between the lines, Kiki's message is this: If not for advances in modern medicine, over 413,000 Americans would have died fighting the Iraq war.

Am I reading too much into it? If it was anybody else, I might be, but this is the anti-American CBS News.

Rubric: The Huh? Files & annikapunditry


What she meant to say was "If it were not for the aliens and their mind control device, I would be a pushy soccor mom, getting into a pissing match with another hausfrau at the Peoria PTA."

There are few members of the media that make me cringe with revulsion more than Ms. Katie Couric. She could be reading "Green Eggs and Ham" -- it wouldn't matter.

Jeez, she reads like the smart bitch in a high school English class. Since when was the "A" in fatalities long?

On the upside, I just got off the phone with Casca II. He called on the satphone from a wadi in the western desert. It was good to hear his voice. Technology is great!

If he's really your son, it would be Casca, Jr. Small distinction, but worth mentioning.

Please give him my thanks, and those of all of us, (except that fool who keeps butting in), for being there and defending us all, even the fool.

I second Shelly's motion. I hope him and his comrades remain safe for the duration of their stay.

Lol, well since he's about five inches taller than me, I've always suspected his mother's fidelity. The rub is that his mind works a lot like my own. In any case, since I'm not a legalistic sort, I'll continue to call him any damn thing I want.

It was an interesting conversation. We talked tactics a bit. I asked him about his ability to displace, so as not to become a fixed target, and to emphasize the need to be thinking about that, and he replied, "I've got very little else to think about, and all day to think about it." LOL

He's on a grand adventure, and he knows it. Any man worth his salt would trade places with him in a heartbeat. I'll pass on your good wishes.

Despite what you or Shelly may think I wish him a safe return. I may not agree that he is defending me or you from a real threat or that his commander in chief is competent but he is a soldier and doing his job takes courage and committment.

Oozing infected cunt drippings: see above:

Straw - you didn't tell me you got married!

Posted by: Radical Redneck on Apr. 8, 2007

Special thanks to you and your son Casca.

Posted by: Mike C. on Apr. 8, 2007

Hey Red,

DOn't worry, after we get move in proper and all and the kid comes we'll get you a nice new leather collar and a life coach.

Straw is especially bitter on Easter because the Jew came back. Good Friday is the ultimate liberal blueballing!

What the fuck is a life coach? Is that some kind of PC government makework job to inculcate loathing of America, heteros and self? I'm surrounded by a zillion of those every day and it hasn't yet, nor will it ever work.

Speaking of weddings Straw, when is your Daddy #1 going to make an honest man out of Daddy #2?

Posted by: Radical Redneck on Apr. 8, 2007

Thank you to your son, Casca. My son-in-law just got back from 14 months in Iraq. We owe them and their families a huge debt.

Posted by: MarkD on Apr. 9, 2007

Thanks Mark. Whew, fourteen months, that's brutal.

It is, if Hillary is elected, going to be a new cabinet level position; Secretary of Life, right down the hall from the office of the Secretary of Peace. They may need an ugly mutt to pace in the front yard so you may have a job opportunity with medical bene's

Seconds and Amen's to everyone's hopes for your son's safety, Cas. BTW, is he a Marine, or is he army? Figured the overbearing ;) influence of his paterfamilias might predispose him to life as a leatherneck, but then again, maybe he's all about blazing his own path and needling his old man about it. 'Specially given that dig 'bout his mom ("Yeah, pop, but funny thing is, I'm the same height as the mailman...").

;) Hehe...

All kidding aside, kudos and blessings to him and his immediate leadership, who I'm certain are equal to the task of leading fine young soldiers and Marines.

No thanks. Either of your wives (from the picture above) are more than qualified.

right down the hall from the office of the Secretary of Peace.

Got news for you genius - there already is a Secretary of Peace. It's called the Secretary of Defense, or the War Department.

Your desperate wet dream of a weak, surrendering and defeatist America will never happen.

We're coming up on the 25th anniversary of his mother deficating him upon a table in the delivery room at Camp Pendleton. Nine months earlier, the deed having been committed at Quantico, MCB. It truly was in his blood. I tried to wave him off, but we're from a line strong with the need to burn our own fingers.
