commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

The White House leaks an improved NATO troop commitment…maybe….

The Wall Street Journal is out with a piece today (Friday night, right?…When nobodies looking, except us) that details the United State plans and hopes to have 3,000 to 5,000 more troops sent to Afghanistan to help President Obama’s expected troop increase, or ‘surge’…..

Funny..the piece says the announcement could be made by November 30th…just about when the Commander-in Chief will make his troop announcement…or right after……

My guess is they are going to have trouble getting more troops (or even keep the ones they have) from Germany, which has had trouble accepting the fact the troops are there to do a little fighting and having casualties which is normal for this type of thing…These causalities are the  first  Germany has had since World War II…..

Zhu Zhu the pet hamster is one of the seasons hottest toys…..

Zhu Zhu is not real folks…..it’s a $7.99 toy hamster that doesn’t run all night in its cage…..ah, they are so popular that there is a price war going on to get them….(for you old timer’s remember the cabbage patch kids, price scalpers?)

Eager to work a good thing…look out for sets of toy hamsters, with everything a real one would need, cage, excercise wheel, fun house and more….of course the set will cost you more..

…the stores and manufacturer has to make money some how, right?

Note: “zhu zhu” means little pig in Chinese….

A memorable quote from the Afghans…..

I heard this Afghani quote yesterday from a reporter that had spent a lot of time in Afghanistan…..

….’the American’s have the watches…we have the time’…..

How true and astute…..

For you Republican Rudy Giuliani fans… remember this?

Rudy Giuliani was pro-choice, and wasn’t against gay marriage ( and he dressed in drag more than once)…..

Just a reminder…..

Be careful what you wish for……..
