WyBlog, the best thing about New Jersey since the invention of the 24 hour diner.
The nine most terrifying words in the English language are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help." - Ronald Reagan

Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Halfway through last night's debate I thought to myself, "I'm missing Monday Night Football for this?" Apparently though, Obama "won". All my liberal Facebook friends said so. Foreign policy isn't Mitt's strong suit, but then I saw this tweet from Stacy McCain.

I also like his take on what Foreign Policy really means:
Foreign policy is really simple, yet the intellectuals and "experts" get paid to pretend we need their advice. This is all just expert rent-seeking, you see.
There are two kinds of people in the world: Americans and foreigners. And there are three kinds of foreigners:
1. Enemies who want to kill us;
2. Allies who want to help us kill our enemies; and
3. A bunch of irrelevant people who don't really need a "policy."
Simple, as I say, and once you've got the basics of who's who figured out, everything else is obvious. Yet there are "specialists" with advanced degrees from prestigious universities who need jobs telling us what to think, and I get so tired of hearing these know-it-alls, I want to stab out their eyeballs with sharp sticks.
Unfortunately sometimes one of these so-called "experts" gets himself elected President of the United States and thus we have to endure 90 minutes of deep baritone enunciations of Pock-ee-stahn. I swore, if he said Pock-ee-stahn one more time I'd poke my ears out with a bayonet. And there was something about ships where planes land and other ships that are underwater. Hopefully those underwater ships didn't sink, and if they did sink, no planes are trying to land on them.
I'm not a Navy guy, but even I know they're called "boats". The Navy has boats. Cruise lines have ships. You'd think a foreign policy expert who's trying to score hot-shot military dude points would know the difference.
Ah, cut him some slack. It was probably covered at one of those intelligence briefings that couldn't be rescheduled between golf and Beyonce. She's way more interesting anyway! But perhaps not as helpful as whatever late-night comedian came up with "the 80's called they want their foreign policy back." Maybe Obama got that zinger from Vladmir Putin. He seems like a guy who knows about boats and how to use them.
President Vladimir Putin took a leading role in the latest tests of Russia's strategic nuclear arsenal, the most comprehensive since the 1991 Soviet collapse, the Kremlin said on Saturday.
The exercises, held mostly on Friday, featured prominently in news reports on state television which seemed aimed to show Russians and the world that Putin is the hands-on chief of a resurgent power.
Tests involving command systems and all three components of the nuclear "triad" - land and sea-launched long-range nuclear missiles and strategic bombers - were conducted "under the personal leadership of Vladimir Putin", the Kremlin said.
Nothing to see here, because Obama's got a big reset button, or something. I think Putin pushed that button, and it reset the calendar. To the 80's. If he keeps that stuff up, well, Mister we could use a man like Ronald Reagan again. Or at least a guy who remembers Ronald Reagan.
Hey, did anyone else catch Bob Schieffer's "Obama's bin Laden" gaffe? I had to rewind, twice, just to be sure I wasn't mishearing him as I laughed uncontrollably. Obama killed bin Laden you know. I can't recall if he mentioned that last night.
One thing I do remember, but seems like it needs more explanation, is something Obama said about how hiring more teachers will help us defeat al Qaeda. "Nation building at home" I believe he called it. And here I thought we already built this nation. Maybe it was back in the 80's.
Adding insult to injury, at least when it comes to my office football pool, the Bears won, 13 - 7, which sucks for me because the Lions got 6½ points. Did I pick da Bears? Of course I did. Hey, maybe if the pollsters give Obama a 6½ point spread his loyal fans can pretend he's beating Romney.
