" I don't think I've ever met a Liberal whom I didn't like on a personal basis. That said, if your goal is to change minds and influence people, it's probably not a good idea to begin by asserting that virtually all elected Democrats are liars. But what the hell."

Paging Steven Coonts
Many of you will remember Flight of  the Intruder, Steven Coonts' novel (and John Milius movie) about  the Navy A-6 Intruder buddies who fulfill  the American fantasy  of actually trying to win the Vietnam war.  They illegaly bomb "Sam City," the anti-aircraft installation in Hanoi that American politicians  have put off limits [GAH!]?  Yeah, that one.  But, how many remember his next novel, Under Siege?  Precious few, I'll bet.

Even though Siege was on the New York Times best seller list, it generated so little media buzz  that it may as well been authored by Ann Coulter.  I couldn't' put it down,  and I anxiously awaited the movie version that never came. 
"When the kingpin of the Medellin drug cartel is extradited to Washington, D.C. to start trial, President George Bush is severely wounded by a hired assassin. Vice President Dan Quayle assumes the responsibility for directing the fight against a criminal army that now rules the streets." Summary
That was the problem  Dan Quayle is assertive, heroic, and does all the right things, qualities  impossibly at odds with the media crafted image of  Dan the Dunce  (and conservative presidential threat). But, I digress.  The thrilling ending of the book has Washington's Black population going Mau-Mau, and hanging scores of the city's drug dealers from lamp posts, and the white House fence (as I recall). USA! USA!  Another American fantasy fulfilled.

This is what reminded me. What an opportunty.

"I did not vote for Obama but he is remarkable. In less than three weeks in office he has collected more than $150,000 in back taxes."

Man, I like Dan Quayle. He was my man until he dropped out against W. It's sickening how the MSM made him out to be a moron. When in fact, he's a highly principled conservative. And very intelligent. I have no doubt he would have made an excellent president. And I'll bet he wouldn't have tried to nuzzle up to the likes of Teddy.

And you know what? The shitheads in the MSM would have done exactly to him what they've done to Bush.

As a matter of fact, the onlt Democrat to defend Quayle was teddy boy, for some odd reason. They were friendly.

I love the target towing; he better let out a little more line before the shooting starts.

I guess Dan is getting rich playing rainmaker at some law firm now. It made me sad the way MSM went after him, but left waayyy more idiotic Dimmocraps alone.

Read the book, really liked it.

And yeah, I think Quayle got a bum deal, too
