"I get very passionate about what I think is right."-Hillary Rodham Clinton

Who cares who the General voted for?

While stumbling along in my Reader today, I found this nugget:

McChrystal’s Tragedy An Update on the Entire Mess by Victor Davis Hanson

Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and military historian at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University…So anyway, I think the one thing I find interesting here is this little tidbit…

Why should we know that McChrystal voted for Obama? To this day, speculations about Petraeus’s political ambitions are always predicated on queries like: “But what party would he run with?” How did that come up? Do generals now self-identify as left or right — and if so, for what purposes other than careerist advancement?

Which got me thinking, yeah he has a point. I mean why make that public?  Does that mean that McChrystal voting for Obama automatically makes him a member of Team Obama? Obviously not. It makes me think that is why Obama seemed to take the article so personal…I mean immediately “summoning” McChrystal around the world to fire him…when he procrastinated repeatedly talking to the General about the direction we would take in Afghanistan and the number of troops the General would need to get the job done.

Then there was this…

Petraeus was a wise choice. He will face far less criticism from the media and politicians than during 2007-8 (e.g., there will be no more “General Betray Us” ads or “suspension of disbelief” ridicule, or someone like an Obama at the confirmation hearing sermonizing nonstop on why Petraeus’s efforts will fail), because his success this time will reflect well on Obama rather than George Bush. Consider the further irony that Obama is suddenly surging with Petraeus. Not long ago he was declaring that just such a strategy and commander were doomed to failure in Iraq (see below). Of course, then he was running to take office on what was wrong rather than trying to stay in office on what’s right.

And then this….

Obama got our attention off BP for a day, and a bad day it was, as the spill regushed this morning in greater volume, so to speak. His speech was fine — if one ignores the usual serial invocation of “I”, “me,” and “my” that we’ve become accustomed to, as the president tries to radiate authority with first person pronouns rather than common sense reality.

That last remark about “…radiate authority with first person pronouns rather than common sense reality.” Wow, this really hits the spot.  I have to say dead on balls accurate!

Well that is my little spiel for today.  After having an OPM (Other Peoples Munchkin) over for the past two days has drained me from any and all desire to think, contemplate, or give a shit about anything…period.

Until Later,

Dominick, Your Beleaguered Working Boy.

  • Sunday Reads: Don’t expect humanity from a #ShitholePresident
        When talking about the racist president in the White House… (and I still can’t believe a year later that turd of a man is the president.) Whether, it be Asshole or Shithole, both words describe both his personality and outlook on and to humanity. Well, I should place a caveat there and state […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Need a Laugh
    Yeah, that image above is perfect. That about puts my family’s emotional state on display, “Fuck it all  Man.” My mom’s cancer is back and if you remember, surgery was not an option because of her blood issues and problems with anti-bodies…and chemotherapy was difficult because she could not tolerate the medicine cocktail that was […]
  • Sunday Reads: Make This Weird
    Do you think some people consciously start the day saying something like that to themselves? It’s going to get weird…I’m going to make this weird. I think tRump surrounds himself with people who have that sentence as their mantra… I would say that tRump also makes this his chosen path to follow, but I am […]
  • Wednesday Reads: Between a Rock, a Cock and a Hard Place
    Which way do you go? That is one tough decision… At any rate, things are getting bad over in the Northeastern United States. I mean, when sharks are becoming “sharkcicles,” it is time to take these cold mutthafukken temperatures for serious. Sharks are freezing to death in the US, due to a record cold winter […]
  • Sunday Reads: New Year 2018
    Hell yes, it is time for another fucking year to roll around. So let us start the party early with this kickass artwork by surreal artist Surazica. There is something about that poodle’s attitude that grabbed my attention. You can scroll through some close-ups here: I don’t know what 2018 will bring, but I do […]
