What do Karl Eikenberry and Carrie Prejean have in common?


      Not a whole friggin lot…except they both appear in this blog.

It’s completely confidential and you are being inappropriate”

On dogs take on Carrie Prejean

Dog reviews Carrie Prejean's book

    At which point, had I been Larry King, I’d have said good riddance to that little lump of annoying twaddle that is Carrie Prejean.  Normally I try to tackle weightier issues, but just for a minute, I’ll go here.  If she had said to him that even the reason for settlement in her case wasn’t up for discussion, which she didn’t do, I think I would almost see a reason for her little girl hissy fit, which is what this is, I have seen grown women defend themselves, and it doesn’t look like this, she’s having what looks like a pre-teen snit. 

     She just wants face time, which would explain her not leaving the set when she got all huffy there.  Spoiled little rich kid, that’s how she comes off. 

     The botox beauty queen has just about milked this whole “put upon” thing for all the publicity it is worth.  Larry was just asking Miss Idiot a simple question, and she couldn’t handle it, which amazes me.  What would she have done with the press exposure had she won her stupid miss pretty crown? It would prolly have killed her, she should be happy she lost that pageant, she can’t handle the spotlight.

    Maybe she needs to do a second porn viddy or have some more plastic surgery or something.  Whiny lil shit.

    That was fun, but now it’s onto more weighty issues.

    An Afghanistan strategy emerges, finally. What I mean by that is that President Obama has made the rather sensible decision to put into any plan that comes out an exit strategy, regardless of the size of the troop increase that will come out after he gets back from his week long trip in Asia.  Former “Commander of the Combined Forces in Afghanistan” and current U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Karl Eikenberry said that any additional troops in the region would make the Afghan’s more dependent on the U.S. and would not be a wise choice given the amount of corruption in Afghanistan under the Karzai Administration.

     That’s what this situation needs.  The President listening to voices on the ground that know the situation, like Eikenberry, not republicans, who say the President is dithering, not pundits and other media types who confuse the issue by making their opinions known without the knowledge  necessary to even speak on the subject.  Judgement based on expert knowledge. And let the Afghan’s pick up some of the slack for their own damned issues. 

     With the right training and the right mindset, they can handle the Taliban themselves. We have to go hunt Bin Laden, and he’s in Pakistan, so spending long years with the Afghan’s, when the real issue is in Pakistan makes very little sense. Get what we need done to fix the issue, which means fight through this slog, train the Afghan’s to fight and fend for themselves while we both fight Al-Qaeda and get Bin Laden, fix it right this time, and be done with it.

    Good on you, Mister President.  Take the time you need to get this done right. Don’t speed through and fuck it up, like Bush did with Iraq.  Democrats always have been better with foreign policy, and here’s your proof.

The mild voice of reason, pleading the cause of an enlarged and permanent interest, is but too often drowned, before public bodies as well as individuals, by the clamors of an impatient avidity for immediate and immoderate gain.  James Madison
