Wednesday, November 30, 2005 Yanks Brit Ad

CNS News reports that has "yanked" the Thanksgiving ad which they misidentified American soldiers by flashing a picture of British troops.

A spokesman with the U.S. Defense Department stated the fatigues and the meal containers do not match anything in service with the American military.

I checked and you can still view the ad on's website. Meanwhile, I checked out the press release for the ad and noted this section describing images of the British soldiers.

for·lorn - Appearing sad or lonely because deserted or abandoned.
The British soldiers were probably forlorn because all the American soldiers were off eating turkey for Thanksgiving.

Good News From Iraq

The 2nd Iraqi Army Brigade has been tested on its combat readiness and is on their way to taking complete control over the Babil Province from Coalition forces.

The 2nd Brigade will plan and conduct independent operations without the direct support of Multi-National forces. The MN forces will still provide a quick reaction force in emergency situations, Medvac, and air support.

The 2nd IAB has taken part in five major military operations in the Babil Province, uncovering 90 weapon caches and detaining many suspects. The unit distinguished itself on Election Day (November 15th) by setting up 41 checkpoints and 12 mobile patrols, keeping the number of terrorist attacks to zero on that day.

Other Facts - Babil is home to 1.7 million people and "Babil" was once Uday Hussein's email password. (

Moveon's Photoshop Fun has used British troops in an ad about American troops to raise money for their left-wing agenda. Now it is time to have some fun at their expense.

I've uncovered the latest versions of the ads.

This is one is set to air on CNN later today.

Oh this is too easy

Moveon's Turkey

Today's WSJ Best of the Web includes this gem:

The above image is taken from a ad showing "American Soldiers" in Iraq. There's only one problem...the ad apparently features British soldiers, according to a US Army captain:

These are not your normal everyday U.S. soldiers though. If you look at the frame they are actually British soldiers. One is in shorts (we don't have shorts as a normal combat uniform) and the others are all clearly wearing British pattern fatigues. So, my point is that these [turkeys] pretend to argue on my behalf and bash the president in the name of my crying wife, and they don't even know what an American soldier looks like! Anyway, it really [ticked] me off.
As Glenn Reynolds once said, "Heh".

Update: My hawk-eyed brother and RFTR noted the online ad I featured above had been photoshopped from the video to make the British troops look more Yank-like. I make the comparison below, click on the image for a larger view.

They do know what American soldiers look like after all!

Here is another view

Update: Bad Example notes, Moveon actually photoshopped the pair of pants from the soldier to the right. This reminded me of NYC mayoral candidate C. Virginia Fields and her own photoshop problems.

Update: Generation Why notes an ironic moment in the ad: "Where are the Republicans?" Perhaps subconsciously realizes just who is fighting to keep them safe.

Update: The Blogmeister answers Moveon's ad.

Jets Drive Fans to Violence

The New York Jets suck.

Now their suckiness is driving Jet fans to violence. Shawn Hundley and Thomas J. Conwell were some of the hundreds of fans who turned out for the Sunday night loss to the (2-8) New Orleans Saints. Both men entered the men's room wearing Jets jerseys, Conwell in a John Abraham jersey, while Hundley had his Chad Pennington jersey on. While taking care of business in the men's room, Conwell started taunting Hundley for choosing to wear the injury-prone Pennington jersey. Once outside the bathroom, Conwell stabbed Hundley in his face, neck and ears. A third man, Henry Finnila, tried to break up the fight and ended up with stab wounds to the neck and head. Chad Pennington was not injured in the melee.

George Zoffinger, president of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, is blaming the Jets 2-9 record for this incident and eight other cases where police were brought in during the last game. Zoffinger claims that, because of the Jets pathetic season, a "gargantuan" number of season tickets holders are giving away their tickets to people who would not normally be at the games.

Even the folks at have given up, listing the wrong score for Sunday night's game. The Jets actually lost 21-19.

New Precision Guided Humor Assignment: My Pet Moonbat

Write a review of Cindy Sheehan's new book.

How ironic, The Alliance chose to pick on Cindy Sheehan's new book for the latest Precision Guided Humor Assignment. I'm sure the righties will blast her as an unpatriotic loon. Not me, I was chosen by the publisher (Tab Noom Publishing) to review the book and provide quotes for marketing purposes.

I found the book, Not One More Mother's Child quite entertaining. From it's start, the author really speaks to her followers on a level they can understand. I took the liberty of scanning in a few chapters from the book. Click on the image to the left for a larger view.

By the way, here are the quotes I provided for marketing the book:
"If I needed 175 pages of anti-everything screed, I would have bought today's NY Times"

"This book has more anti-war clichés than a Michael Moore bowel movement"

"Did the proofreader for this book break out of a methadone clinic?

Tin Hat Tuesday: Trojan Camel

equo ne credite, Teucri.
quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentis

The lines above are from Book II of Virgil's Aeneid, which covers the siege of Troy and basically means "Beware of Greeks bearing gifts". It is apparent that President Bush should put down "My Pet Goat" and read up on the Greek story of The Trojan Horse before accepting any more "gifts" from Iran.

According to the World Weekly News or "the news", our buddies in Iran sent a giant, wooden camel to The White House. Condoleezza Rice noted that the president plans on displaying the camel on the White House lawn and Rice wants to parade it down Pennsylvania Avenue as a sign of our friendship with Iran.

The wooden camel is 50-feet wide and 100-feet tall and is constructed with lightweight palms...but weighs 3 tons. "There must be a heavy iron framework inside -- or something," stated one White House spokesperson.

"I've got a bad feeling about this," said Senator Stanton Ansley of Utah. "All I ask is two days notice before the camel arrives so I can get my family out of the city."

The quote from Ansley in the story bothers me since the 2 Senators from Utah are named Orrin Hatch and Robert Bennett. Could "Senator Stanton Ansley" be in the plot as well? Now we have both a rogue Senator and a Trojan Camel to deal with.

Andy Warhol once quipped that everyone will have "15 minutes of fame". For one Nashville man, those 15 minutes had an extended run in bathrooms of bars all across Music City.

If you're from Nashville or have been drinking in Nashville, you probably know of DUI Mike, he offered his DUI-fighting legal skills on wall ads in bathrooms across the city. While I never needed his services, DUI Mike was always the left stall.

Sadly, DUI Mike has died at the age of 57. Nashville bathrooms may never be the same again.

Good News From Iraq

A couple of weeks ago some co-workers and I sent out a care package to a few soldiers in the 101st Airborne Division. I went through which is a great way to adopt a soldier and send them what they are asking for.

On November 21st, the 101st and the Iraqi 4th Army Division rolled up on some insurgents and captured 30 terrorists and a large stash of money, weapons, and material. Iraqi and American forces swept across Bayji Island in the Tigris River north of Tikrit and found stores of IED making materials, weapons, and RPGs.

Burning Ring of Fire

FORT MYERS BEACH, FL - Police accidentally hit a naked man in the genitals with a Taser after he was caught breaking windows and asking women to touch him, authorities said.

Jeremy J. Miljour, 26, tried to run away when sheriff's deputies approached so one of them shot their Taser, said Cpl. Matt Chitwood. But one of the gun's prongs accidentally hit Miljour's genitals and got stuck, Chitwood said.

Sometimes I wish that I were a cop. Maybe not a cop in Philly, but somewhere else.

Since the AP has not released any photos or video of the incident, I have recreated it on a DFilm production. You can view my creation by clicking on the image or here.

Guess Who's Not Coming To Dinner?

The latest poll to come out of Quinnipiac University is a little foul. Even though he has a 75% approval rating, Mayor Bloomberg is not high on New Yorkers plans for Thanksgiving dinner.

The latest Quinnipiac University Poll shows that a majority of New Yorkers would not want Mayor Bloomberg to eat Thanksgiving with them. The NY Daily News and the rest of the media glaze over the past results in favor of the current results. But, if you look at the trend of this poll, by 2006 a majority of New Yorkers would want a Republican mayor with a dull voice and liberal social positions to have Thanksgiving with them.

But for this year, if Bloomy wanted to find a household who wants to share some turkey, he would need to find a Republican household full of men in Manhattan. It sounds like it's going to be a fabulous Thanksgiving for Mayor The Village.

Drudge reported that CNN X'd over Vice President Cheney's face while reporting on his speech on Monday. CNN blames the marking on a "technological malfunction", while Drudge also reported that a control room staffer at CNN reportedly laughed during the malfunction.

Throw me in the camp of "not bias related". Now if a Whammy shows up in their coverage of President Bush, I'll know CNN's up to something.

NY City Council Strikes Again...and Again

New York City happens to be a perfect political case study for what happens when one party is given too much rope to play with. The New York City Council currently has 3 Republicans, 1 Working Families Party member, and 47 Democrats. You can probably see where this is going.

By far, the worst member of the NY City Council is none other than Charles "I ♥ Castro" Barron. Currently, the city council is debating on letting non-citizens have the right to vote. While everyone has opinions on this matter, Barron let his racist tongue speak for himself. Barron quipped "White men just have too much power. They just don't want to give up on power." This is the same bigot who once stated that he needed to slap the "closest white person . . . just for my mental health".

From taking on Karl Rove, ignoring citizen's votes on limiting term limits, overruling the Campaign Finance Board allowing unions to donate more money to them, to having taxpayers fund campaign literature, this body is so slimy that I feel the need to wash my hands after typing this.

A Sneak Attack

Michael Jordan, Shaq, and now Guadalupe Elias have a brand of sneakers.

A legal immigrant to this country, Brooklyn artist Judi Werthein, developed a shoe for people trying to cross the boarder from Mexico illegally. For $215 you can purchase the hottest shoe on either side of the Mexican border, The "Brinco" (which means "jump" in Spanish). If you don't have $215 to spend on shoes, you can go to Tijuana, where the designer hands them out to illegal immigrants for free.

Features of "The Brinco"
-Removable insole, with a map of the Tijuana area including the best route
to San Diego
compass and flashlight
-A packet of Tylenol

-Aztec eagle on the heel, American eagle on the toe

The Brinco is made in China, where workers are paid less than $42 a month. That makes me want to ask the designer why she chose not make the shoes in Mexico, which would provide employment and a boost to the Mexican economy instead of China's.

Rudy Takes Hill

A Canisius College poll released today asked 501 people* who they would choose in 2008 between Rudy Guiliani (Republican) and Hillary Clinton (Democrat).
Rudy - 54%
Hillary - 38%
Other - 7%

Rudy leads Hillary by 16 points and I assume the "other" are votes split between Macgyver and General Zod.

*Party Breakdown
30% Republican, 28% Democrat, 24% Independent , 11% Not Registered, 6% Other, 2% DK/Refused
These percentages add up to 101%, I hope Canisius has a good math program.

Murtha: "Je abdiquez"

Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) has called for the United States "to immediately redeploy U.S. troops consistent with the safety of U.S. forces." Of course, Murtha is another Democrat who voted for the war.

Murtha, still being serious, uttered this statement: "With a U.S. troop redeployment, the Iraqi security forces will be incentified to take control,". Insurgents welcome Murtha's news and will be more "incentified" to take action against the Iraqi and American forces.

House Democrats will now be "incentified" to go and one-up each other with competing statements in a rush to get on camera. Their asinine comments the military and Iraq should slide downhill from here very quickly.

Also, what does "incentified" mean? has no entry for it, neither does Wikipedia. Even Jeeves has no idea what it means.

You can read Murtha's comments here. Murtha even waits until the 4th paragraph to parrot the "Bush lied" line.

Zod is the one sitting on the bed, using laser beams from his eyes to cook a rock in his pipe.

Yes, the Mainstream Media or "MSM" is patriotic. Stop laughing! Are you done?

I took a poll* to prove this and 100% of those polled think the MSM is patriotic, that's up from 95% a month ago. Furthermore, 75% think the MSM is so patriotic because "Bush is stupid" and 25% cited "Halliburton"** as the reason the MSM is so patriotic.

Losers of the world unite!

The Democrats need an issue, unfortunately for our service members, that issue happens to be "pulling a France" and giving up on Iraq sometime before the 2006 elections. Except for a few members who refuse to eat some of Howard Dean's Salami or drink from Kerry's Kool-Aid, the rest of the DNC would rather see Iraq fall into Civil War than to face the prospect of being out of power after the 2006 elections.

This leads me to an email (below) I got from on his latest fundraising scheme. I could hardly get past the first paragraph without laughing out loud. The author cites four "democratic leaders" who are influencing the debate about America's future in Iraq. Those 4 "democratic leaders": John Kerry, John Edwards, Tom Daschle, and Patrick Leahy.

I believe America has spoken and 3/4ths of your "democratic leaders" were losers in the 2004 election. Two (John Edwards and Tom Daschle) have a better shot of becoming starting quarterback for the New York Jets than molding America's future in Iraq. That's a good thing for both Iraq and our soldiers, but not Chad Pennington.

I think the GOP should reply with an email about Gary Bauer, Lamar Alexander, and Doug Forrester's efforts to thwart Global Warming.

Homeland Insecurity

Newark Liberty International Airport Now Offers Drive-up Seating

Eugene Peters was drunk and drove his SUV around a manned checkpoint at Newark Liberty Airport. Peters then spent 10 minutes driving around a road that has access to a secured runway at the airport. A TSA spokesperson stated that he could have driven onto busy runways and taxi areas of the airport.

The TSA has fined the Port Authority, who operates the airport, only $30,000 for this latest security embarrassment at the airport which was used by the 9/11 hijackers. On November 5th, a man was able to board an American Airlines flight at Liberty International without a ticket or boarding pass. The TSA is fining American Airlines $25,000 for that goof.

In February, a woman was cleared through Liberty airport screening even with the 8-inch butcher knife she had in her purse.

Pujols Named NL MVP...Finally

The National League's MVP has gone to a steroid-abusing prima donna (Barry Bonds) every year since 2001. Finally in 2005, the award goes to a legitimate player. Albert Pujols is the 2005 NL MVP.

Albert Pujols is an amazing baseball player. Someday I'll tell stories to youngsters about how I went to sleep and missed Pujols The Great's 2-out 9th inning game-winning bomb against the Astros in the 2005 NLCS. And there will be many more Pujols moments as his young career continues, much to the dismay of NL pitchers everywhere. Chew on this fact, Pujols is only 25, which makes him the youngest NL MVP since Ryne Sandberg in 1984.

Here's how Pujols matched up against the rest of the NL. Click here for his career stats.
Runs Scored (129 - 1st)
Batting Average (.330 - 2nd)
RBIs (117 - 2nd)

Macgyver/Bauer 2008

As 2008 draws near, you'll see all sorts of candidates from both sides of the aisle stumble over each other to position themselves for a run at the White House.

Only one candidate knows the best route to Washington DC and he can get there with a toothbrush, some WD-40, and a pencil sharpener. According to the Macgyver 2008 site, only one man knows how important both a houseboat and a Swiss Army knife are to America and that man is Angus Macgyver.

Macgyver Solutions
Iraq: a roll of toilet paper, a piece of coal and a bit of string
Osama Bin Laden: piece of chalk and an onion

While Macgyver has yet to name a running mate, I think one choice stands out above all others? Not Pete Thornton or Mr. T, but someone who has worked well with current and previous Presidents, Jack Bauer.

Good News From Iraq: It's Ba'ath Time

Coalition Forces nabbed themselves another bad guy. The leader of the New New Ba’ath Party, Hamid Sharki, was apprehended during a patrol on November 9th.

Sharki was also a member of the Old Ba'ath Party and is suspected of leading insurgent activities in the Diyala Province. So the New Ba'ath Party terrorizes and preys on innocent Iraqi citizens, much like the old one. Which brings me to a critical question: What is the difference from the Old Ba'ath Party and the New Ba'ath Party? Anyone want to take on that question?

The capture of Sharki will hopefully provide information on the whereabouts of one Abd-al-Baqi al-Sa’adun who's suspected of helping with financing and recruitment of foreign terrorists in Iraq. There's a $1,000,000 bounty on Sa’adun's head. But, if the money is not enough, I'll throw in a sweet t-shirt (right) from my Cafepress site for free to the soldier, Iraqi, or Democrat who brings him in. Alive, good; dead, still good.

New Jersey Needs A Slogan

In October, I wrote about how New Jersey spent $260,000 to come up with the lamest slogan, ever. The slogan, "New Jersey: We Will Win You Over" did not sit well with me or acting governor Richard Codey.

Governor Codey issued a Call to Action for people to submit ideas for free, so I have listed the top entries collected from my post. Vote for the slogan that you think would be best for New Jersey or write in your idea for the perfect slogan. The winning entry will be put on a t-shirt or thong and placed on my Cafepress shop.

New Jersey: We Will Win You Over

Which slogan should New Jersey Adopt?

New Jersey: It's like New York without Hillary Clinton!

New Jersey: Better than Old Jersey

New Jersey: The Garden of Eden, without all that good stuff.

New Jersey: Where Kevin Smith used to live.

New Jersey: Only half the state smells funky!

New Jersey: The only state named after a kind of cow

New Jersey: Sure, our governor may have given his unqualified gay lover a high-salaried position instead of looking out for homeland security, but ... uh, I forgot where I was going with this.

New Jersey: Everywhere you didn't want to be

New Jersey: Please ignore our plague-infested lab rats

Vacation in New Jersey: Savor the Irony.

Visit Newark: Just don't stop
