My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Things That Make You Go "Heh."

Three things tonight (with a nod to CQ):

--Zarqawi, terrorist mastermind, most-feared warrior of Allah, has a bit of trouble with guns.

The U.S. military command Thursday released previously unseen images of a video purportedly posted by Al Qaeda in Iraq's leader, showing him decked out in American tennis shoes and unable to operate his machine gun. ...

"It's supposed to be automatic fire, he's shooting single shots. Something is wrong with his machine gun, he looks down, can't figure out, calls his friend to come unblock the stoppage and get the weapon firing again," Lynch said.

"This piece you all see as he walks away, he's wearing his black uniform and his New Balance tennis shoes as he moves to this white pickup. And, his close associates around him ... do things like grab the hot barrel of the machine gun and burn themselves," the military spokesman added.

I love the detail about the New Balance tennis shoes. Nice touch.

--Another Kenney has issues with either substances and cars or with his schedulers

Rep. Patrick Kennedy crashed his car near the Capitol early Thursday, and a police official said he appeared intoxicated. Kennedy said he had had no alcohol before the accident. ...

Kennedy said he was late for a vote, officer Greg Baird said in the letter to McGaffin.

At least if he had done something, then he would deserve it. He did nothing... It was because of his words, because of his ideas, because of his color and his race...

Yeah. That's it--it was his color. I hope she had a touching farewell to her warm, loving, misunderstood son.
