Like, wow … like, bow wow

My old man was a Republican. Onliest D he ever pulled a lever for that I know of was John Fitzgerald Kennedy, because like him JFK was a Mick and a mackerel-snapper.

But I’m starting to think that if I dug the auld fella up, and reanimated him with a shot of Edison medicine and another of Viktor’s va-va-voom-vodka, Zombie Col. Harold Joseph O’Grady would find it very challenging indeed to support any of the shower of bastards on show tonight in the People’s Republic of Boulder (where, I might add, he said I would never go to school, calling it “Hippietown, USA.”).

I think he’d sooner unload a B-24 over the St. James’s Gate Brewery in Dublin, or call Maureen O’Hara a wagon.

I mean, I’ve never seen a junkyard that was all dumb, mean dogs and no junk. Where the hell’s the junk?

    Did Col. O’Grady ever fly B-24s? I thought you said he flew transports. Or did I forget that too?

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      He flew all kinds of multiengine stuff, K, with a specialty in C-47s. That’s what he spent the bulk of World War II flying, dropping troops and material over New Guinea.

      I recall him speaking fondly of the B-24 and the B-25, a plane I got interested in after reading “Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo.” The plane and my Bibleburg high school both were named for Gen. Billy Mitchell. I certainly enjoyed my fair share of bombers there.

    I’ve never been tempted to steal public property before.

    But I noticed these signs outside the local rec center, which serves as a voting center every November, that say “No electioneering within 1,000 feet.”

    Would like to put a couple in my yard, one on the hood of my car, and maybe make a sandwich board out of them that I can wear around town.

    You really want to see their junk? *lol* ~ba-dum-bump~

    Since CNBC reserved the “enjoyment” of the program to their subscribers I found a kind of LUG for this thing, but soon enough the comments were that none of the contestants/campaigners/asshats were answering the questions and Ted Cruz was attacking the “librul meeediah” so I clicked off. One bit made me laugh in a perverse way – when Bush accused Rubio of working a “French week” schedule in the Senate. Of course the clueless dolt doesn’t know that French workers have some of the highest productivity rates in the industrialized world.
    It seems few of these bozos have much of an idea about anything going on outside the US of A…unless of course it’s that TEAR-IST threat from the Middle East, a place some of ’em would have a hard time finding on a map.

      I followed at a safe distance, eyeballing the feeds on NYT, MoJo, Political Animal and Charlie Pierce’s shebeen. Great John God, that was bad enough. I couldn’t have watched it on the electrical teevee machine, even had I wanted to. Not without gunfire.

    I couldn’t watch the evening’s circus. I just read the summaries on NPR news and other sites. You hit the nail on the head with your TV dinner and Fanta analogy. I guess Bernie is all that is left for me.

    Bomb St. James Gate? The horror……

  6. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Meanwhile, this morning Ryan said, after being elected Speaker Of The House, “The American people have lost faith in the House of Representative.” Must be the new benchmark for ignorant, or more like arrogant, understatement. What a broke dick pro pol.

  7. Jim Isaacs Says:

    Patrick you ask where the junk is, well look in the DNC and find all the junk you will ever need.

  8. Charley Auer Says:

    Patrick, the junk was maskquerading as presidential candidates! I did not last long either.
