Here's the Kerry clip from the convention.
And here's Obama getting Russia wrong in the debates. I wonder if the late 1970's have called to ask for it's malaise back.
And here's The New Republic admitting that Romney got it right on Russia:
In the course of the last presidential campaign, Mitt Romney made a comment about America's number one "geopolitical foe," which Romney claimed was Russia. He was mocked by the president and many liberal commentators. Here are Romney's remarks, in their full context, which came during a conversation with Wolf Blitzer:
ROMNEY: Russia...is, without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They fight every cause for the world's worst actors.
BLITZER: But you think Russia is a bigger foe right now than, let's say, Iran or China or North Korea? Is that—is that what you're suggesting, Governor?
ROMNEY: Well, I'm saying in terms of a geopolitical opponent, the nation that lines up with the world's worst actors. Of course, the greatest threat that the world faces is a nuclear Iran. A nuclear North Korea is already troubling enough.
But when these—these terrible actors pursue their course in the world and we go to the United Nations looking for ways to stop them, when—when Assad, for instance, is murdering his own people, we go—we go to the United Nations, and who is it that always stands up for the world's worst actors? It is always Russia, typically with China alongside.
And—and so in terms of a geopolitical foe, a nation that's on the Security Council, that has the heft of the Security Council and is, of course, a—a massive nuclear power, Russia is the—the geopolitical foe.
This all seems...exactly right.
Mediaite has an excellent roundup of MSNBC hosts and commentators mocking Romney's Russia comments. The Colin Powell clips are especially egregious...he had to have known better, but chose to be a Dem Party tool anyways.
I'm thinking of adding an advice columnist to the the site...what do you think?

Despite Newsweek's claim after President Zero's election that "we're all socialists now," some of the younger set still seems to be embracing the concept of free enterprise...
Pass that joint, have a nice weekend, and feel free to post what you like.
As if Joe Biden's recent remarks aren't dopey enough, now we have this. The NAACP of North Carolina is marching on Raleigh, with a whole laundry list of whiny complaints, including, of course, the "racist" agenda of requiring proper ID to vote. OK, now for the fun part. Here's the little handout, telling all the bused-in pseudo-grass roots protesters what do do. Note the one that's marked in red.
This bunch makes crazy old Joe "Shoot-'em-through-the-door" Biden seem almost rational by comparison.
Some of you may not be aware of it, but we actually have a museum at the site, which opens for business every Sunday morning and can be accessed here:

I'm not even going to try to pick who's going to win this one (despite rooting for the Seahawks and nailing nearly every pick throughout this playoff, minus that damn Saints/Eagles game)... ... ... but it breaks down like this:
Denver: Best passing game in the NFL; Defense that has been impressive
Seattle: Best secondary in the NFL; Offense with great running game and all it's receivers back
Something has to give, and it's impossible to say what will first, so consider it too close to call. Vegas spread put the Broncos by 1 pt, before moving to 2 pts, so good luck if you're into that sort of thing. If you're not, there's always these other ridiculous bets available before the big game:
(my personal favorites)
16. Will Richard Sherman get a taunting penalty? (4/1 on yes)
6. Will Percy Harvin leave the game with an injury? (3/1)
2. Will announcers say the word “marijuana?” (7/2)
and of course the #1 answer...
(just kidding... you're going to have to click the link to find out)
Another thing MANY people will be tuning in to see is the ever-popular SUPER BOWL COMMERCIALS. What's Arnold Schwarzenegger up to? What crazy things will the Budweiser guys come up with? How cool will the movie 'Noah' look? When will the Cheesopocolypse occur? Will the Axe girls devour yet another Axe-scented dude? Will GoDaddy push the limit yet again?
As for the halftime show... meh. Bruno Mars w/the Red Hot Chili Peppers. My usual hopes of nudity in this post-Janet Jackson era of Super Bowl Halftime Show just got thrown on its head. Please, please, please don't let there be nudity... please, Flea... I'm serious.
Another highly talked about story going in to this game (and perfectly ample reason for me to post yet another cheerleader photo) is the newfound popularity of Sea Gal Alicia Quaco, an US Air Force Lietenant / full-time production manage / total hottie... Perfect for the guy who likes to fantasize about a gorgeous woman and chant "USA, USA, USA" while doing so:
... God bless America!
Enjoy the game... thread's open... have at it... and GOOOO SEAHAWKS!
That could only mean one thing... SOTU DRINKING GAME!!

I would have posted this Saturday under the heading Saturday Cartoons, however I didn't discover these until today... so instead of traveling back in time and posting it then, I've decided to post it now, without the whole Saturday nonsense (that just wouldn't make sense).
If you found that funny, check out their website at www.theKronies.com.
Then read the villians / superheroes bios. Good stuff.
Enjoy the rest of your Monday.
An airline pilot ferrying passengers home from Ibiza has claimed that his aircraft recently had a close encounter (and a near miss) with a UFO. According to the story, the pilot described the UFO as shaped like a rugby ball, but I suspect what he really said was "hairball" and the reporter simply mistook what he said.
In fact, it may be the same UFO that has been keeping close watch over Star Fleet:

I'll follow up when I know a few more details, but you'll certainly see this all over your headlines at various news sites this morning:
For me it doesn't pass the initial smell test, due to the fact that this administration is ripe with corruption and we all know the outspokenness D'Souza displays in regards to President Barack Obama... and most notably being the man who gave Barack's poverty-stricken brother George (not to be confused with his Muslim Brotherhood-tied brother Malik) money just so he could help his sick son.
Per the article:
“Mr. D’Souza did not act with any corrupt or criminal intent whatsoever,” Brafman said in the statement. “He and the candidate have been friends since their college days, and “at worst, this was an act of misguided friendship by D’Souza. . .It is important to note that the indictment does not allege a corrupt relationship between Mr. D’Souza and the candidate.”
The indictment did not name the Senate candidate in the case. But it appears to be Wendy Long (R), who lost overwhelmingly in 2012 to incumbent Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a Democrat. Long raised less than $1 million for her long-shot campaign
All the scandals that have been plaguign this administration and this is the most notable charge they've issued in 5 years. Pretty incredible... definitely transparent (whether intential or not).
I'd shred the "coincidence" of this story, but why do that when this says it all:
... besides, in this administration, there are no such thing as "coincidences".
(more to come as the story progresses)
It's another three day holiday weekend, but all I plan to do is park in front of the TV (and no doubt be bombarded with advertisements)...
Any of you have interesting plans? Have a nice weekend and post what you like.
Yeah, yeah, yeah... I'm making up for lost time. (I've been busy; deal with it)
Broncos vs Patriots for the AFC Championship
Seahawks vs 49ers for the NFC Championship
AND THE SUPER BOWL IS ONLY TWO WEEKS AWAY!!!
I'm psyched about both these matchups this weekend. First you have two of the greatest quarterbacks of the modern football era in Manning and Brady squaring off Sunday afternoon, followed by a great rivalry in what has quickly become the worst place for opponents to visit (and loudest outdoor stadium ever): CenturyLink Field.
My picks (as if they matter):
I'm going with the Broncos in the first one just because of Denver's defense, which has been surprisingly outstanding throughout the tail end of the year. Yes, Denver has a plethora of talented receivers for Peyton Manning to throw to and New England is, well, rather limited in theirs... but both are capable of putting up the points. Defense will be the key to victory here.
As for the later game I gotta go with the Seahawks. Yes I'm biased... Steve Largent was my biggest hero as a child and perhaps the main reason I ever wanted to be a wide receiver, however their home field has just been brutal for anybody visiting this year. If the game was being played in San Francisco I'd call it a toss-up, but it's not, so I won't. Go Seahawks!
^ I don't even know what kinda weird stuff the SeaGals are doing here....
... but me likey!
Thread is for football-related comments only... enjoy the games!
For T.M.... Merry belated Christmas:
