Truman’s Hump Day Song of the Week: Mama Said Knock You Out

I bought Robert Gates’ new book last weekend, but wasn’t able to access it via Kindle until tonight. If you don’t have it yet, not to worry. This blog is a public service, so here are a few gangsta snippets on:

– Vice President Joe Biden, whom he writes has been “wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” (Glad he’s not in a position that could do any harm).

– Congress, a favorite punching bag, which he describes as “Uncivil, incompetent in fulfilling basic constitutional responsibilities (such as timely appropriations), micromanagerial, parochial, hypocritical, egotistical, thin-skinned, often putting self (and reelection) before country — this was my view of the majority of the United States Congress.”

– Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, whom Gates wrote “once contacted me to urge that Defense invest in research on irritable bowel syndrome. With two ongoing wars and all our budget and other issues, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.”

As he makes the rounds on TV and radio, Gates might look like Nedermeier from “Animal House” with that comically massive neck brace, but he’s definitely getting the last word on many of the D.C. assclowns who infect our government. Great job, Bob!

And happy (belated) birthday, LL Cool J…


About Chairman Mao

I like fomenting socialist revolutions and purging my homeland of pseudo-intellectualism and capitalist dogma. I also like sports, dogs and food (although I wouldn't consider myself a foodie).
