ANOTHER YEAR OLDER
But never old.
One of the best presents I received came from THIRDWAVE Dave, and he didn't even know it's my birthday.
It all started yesterday when my DOWN THE HATCH post (below), detailing my annual adult beverage, inspired Dave to post the absolutely hysterical DOWN, DOWN, DOWN THE HATCH about my "lost weekend" -- Yes, it is sad. She's back on the booze. -- with an equally funny "churchsign" picture.
So I, in turn, posted a churchsign of my own (below). We had a great mutual admiration society thing going sparked by a bit of inspiration.
So imagine my surprise when I surfed over to Dave's this morning and read this: SHE MADE A DIFFERENCE--DID YOU? Say what you want, the gal is good. And it's folks like her that helped put George W. Bush in office in 2004. She doesn't make a big deal about it, but it's true. Few of us can make the same claim; I know I can't.
What Dave is referring to is this post I did at KerryHaters in 2004. As much as I'd like, I can't take that much credit for exposing Kerry's Excellent Cambodian Adventure as an out'n'out LIE. While Kerry did make a pit stop in Vietnam -- yes, it is true -- he didn't slip into Cambodia under the cover of darkness on that particular night. The real credit for exposing Kerry as L'Fraude goes to Pat. From a reader's tip, Pat began some laborious research into Kerry's military experiences using none other than that sloppy-kisses bio, Tour Of Duty, by Douglas Brinkley. Simply brilliant! Poor Pat slogged through at least TWO cover-to-cover readings, taking notes and highlighting passages while rendering his copies dog-eared in the process. Believe me, Pat deserves a Purple Heart for work.
Someone once told me, "I hope I don't offend you, but sometimes I think you fell off a turnip truck." He could be right, because I didn't truly understand the real significance of what I had posted on KH until a reader left a comment about the timing and Pat took it from there. The point of my post was to show how friendly Kerry was with known American enemies.
The whole point of Dave's post is an excellent one: Take the time to make a difference in the future of your country, and the future of your children. Let's leave them something worth fighting for. ... The democrats are organizing now--what are you doing?
I can't thank you enough, Dave, for one of the best birthday surprises ever!
On with the merriment! ...

8 AnkleBitingPundits coined a new term: South Park Nails Scientology - And Issac Hayes Gets "Chefed"
8 CHEF NEEDS JOB: ISAAC Hayes may not have quit "South Park" at all - or at least not willingly. Turns out Hayes has been away from Comedy Central's hit show for the past three months because he had a stroke. According to foxnews.com, he's at home recuperating and did not issue the press release which said he was quitting because the show made fun of his faith. That release was put out by fellow Scientologist Christina "Kumi" Kimball, a fashion executive for designer Craig Taylor. According to foxnews.com, "Hayes loves 'South Park' and needs it for income. He has a new wife and a baby on the way."
8 But don’t worry ‘bout Chef cuz Hayes has gotta brand new gig! h/t LoanCat!
