I mean, would you just look at that face.
Now everyone knows what a shy, unassuming, quiet, humble guy I am. For the longest time, I’m talkin’ years, baby, I’ve known how truly sexy I am, but I’ve always kept it inside of me. I figured others knew it, too, but again, I’m just too modest to go broadcasting this obvious fact all over the place.
I can stay silent no longer. Not after the whole country read that piece in USA WEEKEND not too long ago. Is it any wonder so many bloggers write about me and include my picture. They can’t help but realize it, too. Granted, my glasses aren't that retro geeky style. But it seems glasses in general are considered to have great appeal.
Good God almighty. I am the total package.
Army soldier Kris Walker doesn't want to return to Iraq. I don't blame him, but his reasoning is questionable. Walker says the Iraq war is immoral.
You have to wonder what motivated him to join the Armed Forces in the first place if he felt that way.
A Pentagon spokesman says, " He’s actually turning his back on his battle buddies. By just not reporting, you’re letting down your teammates. When you raise your right hand to defend the country, you knew there was a time you could possibly be deployed.”
I tend to agree.
Here's the story.
“We should not, we must not and I will not raise taxes."
Governor Doyle statement during his 2003 State of the State address.
Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. However, my disagreements notwithstanding, I still feel the piece is worth a read).
Limbaugh: Mr. President, keep the airwaves free
"You have singled me out directly, admonishing members of Congress not to listen to my show. Bill Clinton has since chimed in, complaining about the lack of balance on radio. And a number of members of your party, in and out of Congress, are forming a chorus of advocates for government control over radio content. This is both chilling and ominous."
Pardon the interruption
"In this interlude between health czar nominees, and before we legislate government as the solution and final arbiter of medical care, it may be a good time to consider a few unheralded facts about America's health-care system. For instance, did you know:"
A tale of two Democrats
"More mixed messages from our state government (read: Democrats in Charge)"
Henny Penny and the right to vote
"I believe that any individual who is receiving a government subsidy should lose his/her right to vote for as long as s/he receives that subsidy."
Democratic leader to business: you're the problem
"The powerful chairman of the state Legislature's Joint Finance Committee had a blunt message for business leaders gathered at a Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce conference in Madison last week: The state's economic woes can be laid right at their doorstep."
Democrats acting badly
"I hope that the next time President Obama holds a press conference one reporter in the room asks him if he supports his Attorney General's opinion that America is 'a nation of cowards'."
Our battered American
"I’ve never said or done a racist thing in my life, not one. Always supported equal opportunity, always will. So don’t call me a 'coward' or my countrymen 'cowards,' not when you’re my Attorney General. You are The Attorney General of the United States of America, so please, no more playing Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson."
President ignores tragedy of abortion
"President Obama offered remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast that made a few pro-lifers stand up and take notice. He said..."
Media bias doesn't have to be national
"We all know that there is liberal bias at the national networks, but we tend to trust our local media not to have that same bias. However it's unfortunately there, just better hidden it seems."
You don't need a weatherman
"Coleman’s life has been dedicated to studying and presenting weather and the science that creates it—so shouldn’t we at least hear him out? He thinks we should, and he has supporters. He says the science we’ve digested is erroneous."
Big hit beats global warming
"Global warming is for sissies. Here's a macho problem for dedicated environmentalists."
Sex and the single priest
"It is perfectly acceptable to spew intolerance against Christians in general and Catholics in particular. But the bonanza of prejudice is reserved for Catholic priests."
Stripping your way to success
"Why so many big screen strippers and hookers?"
