A U.S. Army cadet reads a book entitled "Kill Bin Laden" ...

A U.S. Army cadet reads a book entitled Kill Bin Laden as he waits with other cadets for U.S. President Barack Obama to deliver an address on U.S. policy and the war in Afghanistan at the U.S. [read more]

Drudge reports that he was reading it during Obama’s speech, which I suspect is an error.¬† I think those young cadets are far too disciplined and respectful to do that, no matter how much they may have wanted to. Still it’s nice to see this clever cadet expressing himself with a clarity and resolve that the president failed to muster.

His neighbor was reading Brad Thor.


Progressive Network Calls West Point “Enemy Camp” by American Elephant

As usual, the “progressive” leftists at MSNBC have harsher language for our troops and conservatives than they do for our nation’s enemies. But Chris Matthews plumbs new depths on a network that seems to exist solely to plumb new depths, when he calls actually calls the cadets at West Point Military Academy the enemy. (Keith Olbermann can be heard in the background signalling his agreement with an, “mm hmmm”, and Rachael Maddow chimes in, “I think you’re right Chris.”

Another accidental moment of honesty by the progressive network shills for this administration. Catch liberals off their guard if you want them to tell you how they really feel.

Matthews should resign, but of course this is tame stuff for progressives.

(But it still gives me an opportunity to dredge up a story I missed last week about sanctimonious, race-bating, progressive MSNBC being  the whitest network on TV. Heh. Do as they say, not as they do? )
