Powell Biography [Parody]

LarryNaselli.com has obtained an advance copy of Bob Woodward's new unauthorized biography of Colin Powell's tenure as Secretary of State, Odd Man Out, 396p. Simon & Schuster $29.95.

Here is an excerpt from page 116, in a chapter on the Cabinet debate over Operation Iraqi Freedom:

"as the Secretary of State presented his case that America must pass the Global Test, rather than rush into a war that was likely to leave millions of innocent Iraqis dead, homeless or without adequate health care, Rice and Rumsfeld shot down Powell's non-ideological Centrist approach, like a Marine shooting down a wounded Iraqi in a Mosque.

Despite such setbacks, Powell soldiered on, trying to bring some balance to an administration that had been almost wholly taken over by Dick Cheney and the Neo-Cons. During those days, Powell often confided to his wife that to leave his job at State would be to abandon American policy to the whims of Halliburton, The Mossad and The Weekly Standard."

Justice For Treacherous Embeds

It will be a fitting irony when some terrorist - I mean some "insurgent," feigning he's dead, blows up an embedded Network News Crew, because the U.S. Marines hesitated an extra moment, out of concern that American Reporters might misrepresent their actions on the evening News.

Know Thy Enemy

The U.S. Marine who shot a wounded terrorist in a Fallujah Mosque committed a critical error in judgement. If he had correctly identified the enemy, he would have first shot the embedded Network News Crew, then shot the terrorist scum.

Statistical Sampling Makes a Comeback

The latest Bush-hating Democrat-Wacko delusion is that President Bush stole the election by hacking the voting computers in Ohio. This (ahem) "theory" would have been invested with credibility by ABC News' coverage of it -- if ABC News had any credibility to invest. Instead, ABC News has just lashed itself to the mast of the Democrat Paronoia ship.

Before examining the "evidence" for this latest charge of election stealing, permit me to bask in the irony that electronic voting machines have come into widespread use mainly in response to the Democrat-inspired hype that the "fatally flawed" punch-card balloting method cost Al Gore the 2000 Presidential Election. The fact that there was nothing flawed about the punch cards (although there were some hopelessly flawed Democrat voters, evidently lacking the elementary school mental prowess required to correctly cast a punch-card ballot, but nevertheless eminently qualified - we are assured -- to participate in the choice of our nation's chief executive), did not forestall the expenditure of untold millions of dollars to "upgrade" voting systems across the U.S.A. So far, no prominent Republican has been impolite enough to recommend to this year's bereaved Democrats that vote stealing by hacking could be prevented by getting rid of the computers, and using punch-card ballots. Perhaps Republicans are not wasting words because they realize that the only thing that will cause Democrat partisans to accept the election results is a Democrat victory.

Now as for the "evidence" ABC News has uncovered indicating that Republicans cheated: well, there is no evidence, just a plethora of emails from Democrats convinced that Bush stole the election (ABC has certainly come a long way from the old days - i.e. last month - when it studiously ignored Conservative Bloggers' rigorous exposure of CBS's use of forged documents to discredit President Bush's military service). The emails from Democrat partisans - er, I mean from non-partisan concerned citizens -- cite the disparity between the machine vote counts and the Network Exit Polls as prima facie proof that . . . the vote counts are wrong. In fact, it is the very absence of evidence that shows just how subtle this Republican scheme is, in acknowledgement of which Democrats exchange knowing glances, and confidently intone the words "Karl Rove," as if no further explanation or proof is necessary to pronounce the Bush victory a fraud.

While it may sound to you like these Democrats are un-hinged, their claims are actually consistent with mainstream Democrat "logic." Remember Bill Clinton's proposed Census Reform? The Great Prevaricator wanted to replace the current Census methodology of counting actual citizens, with a statistical sampling that would be extrapolated to calculate the population - Census Exit Polling you might say. Democrats apparently believe that if the educated guess differs from the actual count, go with the educated guess. The most generous interpretation I can put on that is impenetrable elitist arrogance, and that would be an educated guess consistent with the observable evidence.

Specter Verdict

Arlen Specter celebrated his re-election to the U.S. Senate by throwing down a gauntlet to President Bush, warning the President that Conservative Judicial Nominees need not apply at Specter's Senate Judiciary Committee. The reaction from Conservatives was swift and impressive, as Senate mailboxes were jammed and phone lines shut down, by a flood of demands to deny Specter the Judiciary Chairmanship. Specter quickly tried to tap dance out of his tactical error, denying that he ever said the things he was captured on tape saying, and assuring Republicans that he would support the President's nominees, more or less.

So how should President Bush's supporters judge wanna-be Chairman Specter's putative repentence? Well, Senator Specter, see if you can understand this: if we were under Scottish Law, Conservatives would vote "Case Not Proved."

Known by his enemies

I know many Christians who don't see that George W. Bush was the Presidential choice that honors Biblical values, but the other side has no problem seeing it . . . and they are mad as Hades about it too.





This map was published in Germany's Der Spiegel, following President Bush's election victory.

Voice of Reason

If somebody had told me in 1994 that in ten years Hillary Rodam Clinton would represent the voice of reason and moderation in the Democrat Party, I would have scoffed -- as you would have too -- but, against the backdrop of the Democrat Party lashing out and melting down in the aftermath of an electoral thrashing, Hillary seems the very soul of temperance among Democrats.

Brain Dead?

Network newsreaders breathlessly report on the condition of Palestinian "Leader," Yassar Arafat, sounding worried and grave, as if the World were about to lose a revered paternal figure in the quest for human freedom, rather than the bloodstained piece of human debris who initiated the current era of Islamist terrorism.

Since the death of tyrants is typically attended by disinformation and deception, we don't know for certain whether Arafat is brain dead or not. What we do know for certain is that the Leftist Media is.

Specter of Opposition

A star is about to be born. Emerging from the shadows of a re-election that came entirely due to the intervention of George W. Bush and Rick Santorum, Senator Arlen Specter is poised to become the latest darling of the Old Media (in fact, we may soon be subjected to John McCain crooning another Streisand standard: "You don't send me flowers anymore").

Specter, without waiting for the dust to settle from the election, has served notice that, as Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, he will oppose President Bush's Conservative Judicial appointments.

To describe Specter's action as ungrateful understates the case. Specter is a world-class jerk. But surely Bush and Rove knew that before they statergerized to help him fend off Conservative challenger, Pat Toomey, in the GOP Primary Election. If they didn't know, it was not for want of Conservatives telling them so.

Now, Specter has the opportunity to bask in the adulation of the Old Media, and to be sought after by Liberal news shows as a font of sage pronouncements. Specter's Sunday Morning schedule won't have been this full since his days as an Altar Boy.

But, there is one more election that Specter has to win, before being coronated as "the conscience of the Republican Party." In the next few weeks the GOP Senators will meet to choose their leadership. If the Republicans have finally pinched themselves and realized that they are actually in the majority, they will behave like it and smack down Senator Specter from the Judiciary Chairmanship he covets. If Specter promises not to make too big a fuss, the Republicans should let him keep his Veterans Affairs Committee Chairmanship.

Enforcing some Party Discipline with Specter would not only serve the immediate interest of moving the President's Judicial nominations to confirmation, but remind renegades like Collins, Snow and Chaffee, that there's a new sheriff in town.

I long to see the following press release issued by Bill Frist, after the Republicans meet to choose their leadership:

"the Republican Senate caucus, recognizing the need to bring a divided nation together, has decided on a plan of Power-Sharing in the upcoming session. Our Republican Senators have chosen Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama to Chair the Judiciary Committee, so that power in the national government will henceforward be shared as follows: federal judges will decide cases, based on the laws passed by the People's elected representatives, who will in turn have the sole authority to pass laws. The People's elected representatives will refrain from deciding court cases, and the judges will refrain from making laws. Our caucus feels that this novel arrangement will help to heal the wounds of a divisive and sometimes bitter election campaign."

How Do I Feel?

Once the concession and victory speeches were done, and the re-election of George W. Bush was a certainty, I tried to articulate my feelings, and a passage from The Return of the King came to mind.

Frodo and Sam have destroyed the Ring, and Sam awakens on the celebratory Field of Cormallen, surprised to find Gandalf alive and well, Frodo alive and well, and (most astonishingly) himself alive and well. Gandalf inquires as to how Sam feels, and Samwise perfectly captures my post-Bush victory sentiments: "How do I feel?" he cried, "Well, I don't know how to say it. I feel, I feel" -- he waved his arms in the air - "I feel like spring after winter, and sun on the leaves; and like trumpets and harps and all the songs I have ever heard!"

Exactly.

The Return of the King, page 931, J.R.R. Tolkein

Retirement Party

With Republicans gaining four seats in the Senate (or three if Lincoln Chafee takes the NRSC money and runs to the other side of the aisle) and picking up two or more seats in the House of Representatives, look for a rash of Democrat Retirements from the Congress, just as we witnessed after Republicans won control of both the House and Senate in 1994.

The Final Battle of the Vietnam War

The American People owe a debt of gratitude to Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. These warriors engaged and won what should be known as the final battle of the Vietnam War.

How sweet it must be for these brave men, whose due honor was stolen by war protester John Kerry and his ilk, to play such a critical role in burying the man who betrayed them. As the scripture saith, "Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein; and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him" (Proverbs 26:27).

Aftermath

Reflecting upon the re-election of President George W. Bush, what I feel is a sense of profound gratitude to God, and encouragement about the sound instincts of the American People.

Morning in America

I got in my car about 5:00 AM to head for work, and tuned in the radio, feeling like Francis Scott Key may have felt when he wrote, "O' say does that star-spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave? It does!

Troubled and concerned no more!

I hereby nominate South Dakota for the State-of-the-Month award, to honor South Dakotans for turning out Tom Daschle from the U.S. Senate.

Unlike Tim Johnson in 2002, Daschle was unable to conjure enough votes from dead Indians to surmount John Thune's statewide popularity. Now, the People of South Dakota have one Senator who reflects their values, the U.S. Senate has lost its Obstructionist in Chief.

Daschle, who was always "troubled," "troubled and concerned," about everything and anything Republicans said, did or thought, played the self-appointed nemesis to President Bush -- until his Senate re-election campaign rolled around in a State that voted 2 to 1 for Bush in 2000, at which point Daschle attempted to present himself to the South Dakota voters as George W. Bush's most stalwart ally. The People of South Dakota were not as stupid as Daschle thought, bravo!

Now, look for the Dems to choose somebody with a very safe seat as their next Minority Leader, maybe Harry Reid or Evan Bayh; but we can always pray that they will manifest the usual Democrat self-destructive tendencies and choose someone like Chuck Schumer or Barbara Boxer.

I was with my wife and children at the regular home meeting of our church last night, and before we headed home we clicked on the TV for a few minutes to see the returns. It was about 9:45 PM, and Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings both looked like they had just taken a phone call informing him that their best friend had died.

On the basis of that reliable indicator I went home and slept soundly, confident of a Bush victory.

Thanks be to God!

A flip flop in the family?

My son called last night from Ft. Polk, and told us that their NCO's have denied the rumor that their brigade is headed to Iraq in May. Knowing that President Bush will remain at the helm, I have no qualms if Matt does get deployed to a combat zone; because his risk is for the great, good and noble cause of winning our war to destroy Jihadist terrorism against America.

Matt may have phoned me with that rumor in the first place, in order to move me off the fence. Up until November 2nd I was one of those undecided voters -- I was undecided whether to vote for President Bush on the way to work, or on the way home. Matt's call got me to the polls just after 6:00 AM.

The stakes have just been raised for me

The stakes of this presidential election just got higher for me. I just listened to a voice mail from my son, stationed at Ft. Polk, Louisiana, saying that their commanders have notified his brigade that they may be deployed to Iraq.

Matt called to ask me to pray that the chain of command would make the right decision, and that his brigade would be ready if they receive orders to deploy to Iraq.

If my son goes to Iraq, I want to know that he is there fighting for an American victory in the War on Terrorism. I don't want him there or anywhere as part of a John Kerry retreat.

This brings the urgency of re-electing George W. Bush right to our kitchen table, and brings me to my knees praying for a Bush victory.
