Deploy Michael Phelps to the Strait of Hormuz immediately

So this morning was like any other morning for me. For breakfast I ate three fried egg sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions, and mayo; one five-egg omelet; a bowl of grits; three slices of French toast with powdered sugar; three chocolate chip pancakes; and two cups of coffee.

I guess I'm never really that hungry in the morning.

So Michael Phelps won his sixth gold medal yesterday, huh? He ought to be deployed to the Strait of Hormuz immediately! Just mount a camera on his head and send him out to keep an eye on that Mahmoood Ahkmadena-dude fella in Iran. Or maybe strap a Patriot missile on his back to take out any rogue missile firings from Iran. Problem solved.

As for Putin, what could he possibly have been thinking? It's clear that his goal includes far more than just gobbling up Georgia. But with our new missile defense deal with Poland, maybe Putin will reconsider. Or maybe not. What should be clear to him though is that there is a cost involved with his decision-making. Unlike a scenario with a president Obama, who would simply respond with rhetoric and assigning moral equivalence to Russia's aims to ours in Iraq, and blaming America first.

Or maybe a president Barry would simply hide out in Hawaii every crisis.

So I'm still left wondering why Putin didn't wait to see how this next election turned out. After all, It's roughly 50-50 between The Barack and that wrinkly, white-haired dude.

  1. Yesterday a reporter asked Condoleezza Rice what the difference was between Russia invading Georgia and the U.S. invading Iraq. Man-o-man what a great opportunity to make the MSM look stupid!! I would have responded something like this:"How many of you reporters are aware that there were at least forty other countries that formed a coalition with the U.S.and that the coalition had U.N. approval for any action taken in Iraq? Let's have a show of hands. Helen, I don't see your hand in the air."
