Kind Words for Our President

Not only should we applaud President Obama's recent brief visit to Iraq and the good speech he gave there praising the troops for succeeding in the war overseas contingency operation he opposed, but we should also praise him for not completely stopping any attempt to rescue the poor captain in the lifeboat in the Gulf of Aden. I do give him some credit there, as well as to the captain himself, Richard Phillips, and to the commander on the USS Bainbridge, DDG 96, Frank Castellano, and to the three unknown Navy SEALs who took out the young captors/pirates with three shoots/three kills. Excellent work all, especially the snipers for the short range but extremely difficult, simultaneous shots. Wonder if they used the .338 Lapua Magnum?

Hip Hip, etc.


A taxonomy of cheers, ordered from least to most enthusiastic:

Hip, Hip, Meh.
Hip, Hip, Whatever.
Hip, Hip, Etc.
Hip, Hip, Hooray.
For he's a jolly good fellow (kinda); for he's a jolly good fellow (sorta); for he's a jolly good fellow; and so say some of us.
