I'm not much on Huckabee...

...but I think I'd get along just fine with his wife.

[Janet] Huckabee, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, said in an interview that she once shot a grenade launcher at a National Guard training camp in Arkansas.

"I have fired a grenade launcher and hit the target two out of three times, so I think that's pretty good odds for me," she said, noting that she had a special interest in military matters and has also jumped out of an airplane, flown in an F-16 and shot an MP5 submachine gun.

My wife carried the M-203 grenade launcher for her platoon when she was in the Army. After I heard that it was true love...

Yup. Now there's a woman one might vote for.

why isn't SHE running?

"why isn't SHE running?"

Because she's even less qualified than the complete and utter tools that are running.

Remember, Bush has shot guns and flown in a plane, too. Eco Pope Gore even played with some of Uncle Sugar's toys.

Takes the shine off of it, no? Or did I piddle on an estrogen party?

You honestly don't get it, do you?

Never mind. Go back outside and finish changing my tire. :p

Only if you stop drinking beer and buy and apron.

And I would have pushed for a car wash, if'n I were you.

"Only if you stop drinking beer and buy and apron."

Can it be a tactical apron? Is vodka okay?

Breda said...

oa - that's my point. She'd be just as good as any candidate, and probably better than a few.

Lawn care and auto-maintenance.... the two most important things men can offer women.

Only if it's black. Camo is for that guy with the NASCAR sticker on his lawn mower (can't figure out why more NASCAR fans don't dig WRC. cars, dirt, drunken fans building fires and eating game on the side of the road. it's like the infield at Talladega save in the woods. what's not to like?). And no, vodka certainly isn't okay. Christ, look around you. Bourbon or it's bastard cousin, sippin' whiskey only. Moonshine's fine, so long as it's not that damnable stuff made with sugar. Or are you able to play the "Sky's my people's vodka" card? At which point you'll have to accept being called "The Iron Valkyrie" at least twice a week, though I'm sure they used stainless. "Stainless Valkyrie" just sounds too tactical.

"auto-maintenance"

You need a quart of blinker fluid, and your franklin rod's stovepiped. Don't know that I'd trust it for the road.

oa, quit digging. Take it like a man.

The reason she's not running is way simple: when you have an M-203, you don't have to run. And that's not just me talking: I have it from Lyle Bouck, MOH, who stopped the VI Panzerarmee cold with one mortar, set to eighty-effin-nine degrees.

OA said...

"oa, quit digging. Take it like a man."

Should I have gone with the limp dick "yes, dear"?

And I still say WRC is a superior product to NASCAR. But then, so's lawnmower racin'...

comatus said...

oa, now a lawnmower rally, that would be somethin.

Good luck finding a safe ('non-fatal') place to watch one corner.
"Car on the course!" "Blades engaged!" A tactical lawnmower...
