Scare Force One! (or) "Mistakes On a Plane"

According to ABC News's White House correspondent, Jake Tapper, this fiasco cost taxpayers an estimated $56,518 for each hour Scare Force One was out buzzing the Statue of Liberty.

I normally have some kind of snarky joke here, but I think Jon Stewart said it all. If it cost us almost $60K to get Stewart to rip on Obama for once, it was money well spent.

Run, John, Run!

It would have been soooooo epic if John announced that he was running for governor during his speech! Oh well. Enjoy his speech, hopefully you were in Columbus to hear it in person.

Hamas Struck By Fist of Irony Gods

Cross-posted at The Post blog. Because I can.

According to the World Tribune, Hamas fighters in Gaza City unsuccessfully attempted to use US-manufactured Stinger missiles against Israeli forces. Unfortunately, the Irony Gods intervened. From the World Tribune:
"We were disappointed by them, and they were found to have been useless," a Hamas source said.

The source said Hamas smuggled four Stinger systems in 2008. The source said the Hamas military deployed the Stingers against Israel Air Force AH-64 Apache attack helicopters during strike missions in the northern Gaza Strip.

"Our gunners couldn't fire the weapon," the source recalled. "A notice came up on the display saying 'friendly aircraft.'"

Industry sources said Raytheon, producer of Stinger, installed identification friend/foe capabilities more than a decade ago. The sources said this would prevent Stinger from being fired against any aircraft used by the U.S. military.

Apparently, this fail/win (depending on how you look at it) was not pleasing enough for the deities of Irony:
Another Hamas source said gunners deployed Stinger along with heavy machine guns in attacks on Israeli helicopters during the war in the Gaza Strip. The source said one Stinger surface-to-air missile was launched, but the projectile veered off course and struck a Hamas gunner squad.

"The Stinger was drawn by the heat of our guns rather than the engines of the Israeli helicopters," the source said. "At that point, we stopped using this weapon."

The sources said Hamas has abandoned plans to acquire additional Stingers.

Tea Party

Just a brief announcement, the Ohio University College Republicans will be going to the Columbus Tea Party on, appropriately, April 15. So far, about 25 people are planning on going, and that number will probably go up as the date approaches. Myself, I am planning on being in attendence. NICE!

Speaking of tea parties, I'd feel better if this was how the government handled bailouts...

Wow... really?

Another Obama appointment nominee has tax problems. I mean, really, how do you just forget to pay your taxes? Every April 15, you pay your taxes, right? At this point, I seriously think that President Obama picks people on purpose who haven't paid their taxes. Is it a Democrat thing to not pay your taxes, or is it just dumb luck that almost every person Obama's tapped (except for Judd Gregg, but he is a Republican) for a position ends up having forgot to pay taxes. Obviously, it must be a dumb luck thing.

Yeah. That's the ticket.
