Happy Days Are Here Again!

Forgive me if I am as happy as a drunk Jack Russell Terrier, but this week has been gooood!

For starters, Al Zarqawi's dead. I just hope he lived long enough for one of our burlier troops to whisper to him that he was virgin number one and there were seventy-one others, right behind him...

Speaking of dead, three (count 'em, three) Gitmo detainees offed themselves to bring the world's attention to the plight of the Jihadists being held in torturous conditions at the naval base in Cuba. Works for me.

Bush jetted to Baghdad to greet the troops, who appear to love him, despite all of his verbal faux pas and blustery cowboy banter. Imagine that.

Al Gore continued to be an idiot. Imagine that.

KKKarl Rove told Special Prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, that "These are not the droids you are seeking", while waving a hand in front of his face. It worked!

The poll bounce that Bush and his agenda received makes it a little less likely that Democrats will retake the congress this election cycle. That's a good thing, right? Well just to illustrate why it is a good thing (just in case you aren't apprehensive enough about a Speaker named Pelosi, a free and legislating William Jefferson and an unmuzzled hero like John Murtha...), at a recent Democrat gathering in Virginia, Jim Moran (D-VA) stated,
“When I become chairman [of a House appropriations subcommittee], I’m going to earmark the shit out of it,”!

Now what was that I heard a month ago about a "culture of corruption"???

Add to all of this wonderful news, the fact that the "net neutrality" amendment to HR5252 (a communications bill that would increase competition for cable TV)was defeated (WAAHOO!), and it was a great week indeed! This was a blow against the forces of regulation and governmental control and for the continued freedom of the internet.

Excuse me while I gloat and drink a toast to common sense in this country!

Right On, Marge!
I actually missed a few more good things, such as the Republican win in San Diego and the firming up of the Iraqi government, but a happy week it was!

And since I tested my beer the other day and it is progressing nicely, another "Yeehah"! is in order...
