The Burning Question

Mr. Conservative... How many licks does it take, to get to the tootsie roll center of the national security issue?

I don't know son... I never made it without fighting.

"What I say is that on that September 10th and September 11th, on the fifth anniversary of an extraordinary tragedy in America, you don't welcome a person to Harvard with open arms who has preached the destruction of Israel, who has developed nuclear technology, contrary to what he had said, who has jailed dissident students in his country, who has praised Hezbollah. This is a person who's words are worth nothing."
- Massachusetts Republican Governor Mitt Romney

Why don't you ask Mr. Liberal?

Mr. Liberal... How many licks does it take, to get to the tootsie roll center of the national security issue?

Let's find out...


"Reprehensible" is the word used by the White House to describe remarks made by Sen. Dick Durbin (search) earlier this week comparing the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to victims of Nazis, Soviet gulags and Cambodia's Khmer Rouge. -Fox
The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times both reported last week that the Treasury Department had subpoenaed information from SWIFT -- a financial clearinghouse that exchanges transactional information between banks -- as part of anti-terrorism probes since the 2001 al Qaeda attacks on New York and Washington. - CNN

"Congress was briefed, and what we did was fully authorized under the law," President Bush told reporters. "And the disclosure of this program is disgraceful."


The company distributing filmmaker Michael Moore's Bush-bashing movie "Fahrenheit 9/11" says it won't reject an offer of help from Middle East terrorist organization Hezbollah. As WorldNetDaily reported, terrorists affiliated with the Iran-backed network last week offered to help promote the film in the United Arab Emirates. -World Net Daily
"Look, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution. They said if the Iranians didn't step up, that we would step up. This is a test for the diplomacy. This is a test for the United Nations. If it fails, then what we're going to have to do is begin to come up with a serious containment policy, here." - Senator Joe Biden

[Insol: Diplomacy and U.N. resolutions! Why didn't we think of those powerful tyrant toppling tools of terror? What a fantastic, kick a$$ national safety strategy.]

Uh-Three ...

Former President Carter is reported to have agreed in principle to meet with Khatami during his visit, although there was no immediate confirmation that the Iranian will accept the invitation.

State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Carter was "a private citizen, and he is free to meet with whomever he pleases."


"Did they have to pick the fifth anniversary of 9/11 and the National Cathedral, which is the place where we memorialized and commemorated the [9/11] victims?" demanded Kevin Hermening, one of 52 American hostages captured in the U.S. Embassy in Tehran in 1979.

[Insol: Do you remember that one Jimmy C.? You had a front row seat, until Ronaldo Magnus kicked both you and Iran out of it.]


Iranian terrorist leader Khatami is invited to Harvard for a birthday party. The birthday celebrates the birth of a five year old tragedy.

Harvard's academic PC cadre of despicable, pandering apologists and appeasers can get some free spoiled brat attention from the national media. They get to push everybody's hot buttons. They get to say "Look! Over here! We get to be good world citizens, by giving evil a microphone!"

Tom Menino, The Democrat mayor of Boston, pledges the security of the Boston police for the Khatami visit.

So, How many licks does it take to get to the chewy core of national security?

The world may never know. (Until November, that is)

Great job, Insol.
Always loved that commercial.

I can't wait to see your post about the Dems threatening ABC and Disney! (Hint, hint!)

Wow, great post, Insol. Did you do those drawings?

It seems as if everytime libtards do something stupid that you'd think can't be topped, they always outdo themselves with their next stupid move. Kinda frightening, really. I wonder how they'll top this.

Well, that's why I have a saying: Never understimate the depths of human stupidity.

I always hated that elitist professor owl. Why couldn't he just do the research and answer the damn question? No, he had to inject his own agenda, justifying his indulgent weakness by wrapping it in the mantle of science. All the while tacitly belittling the virtues of patience, sacrifice, and self- control.

To this day I want to cram that TootsiePop down his arrogant tenured beak and say, "Since you didn't really answer the question, motherf**ker, the answer is ONE!"

jimmyb – I don't remember a group of Republican senators actually sending a letter to CBS, threatening to pull their FCC broadcast license, over their dottering depiction of Ronald Reagan. Those of us in the political periphery got upset about it, and sent letters; just like the liberals are doing now. There is a big difference between that, and actual government officials moving to stifle free speech.

FIAR – Yes, it damn well is!

fm – Yeah, Toulous Latrec I am not, sitting in the lab, browsing the web with engineering pad in hand. The behavior we are seeing now, almost borders the behavior of Mao's “Let a hundred flowers bloom” movement, where young Chinese people waved little red books around. Now it's the PC thought police. In much the same way, they look at you with smiles and brotherhood and bogus platitudes about diversity. Heaven help you if you try to disaggree.

Insolublog said...

a4g - We simultaneously posted, again! You precisely identified the incident which made me think of the tootsie owl. I was listening to an excuse being made by a Harvard meat puppet, talking about free expression and Harvard's long history of supporting dissenting views. Of course, when one of their own, Lawrence Summer, cited a woman's study, which didn't fit Harvard's PC template, he was run out of town. Yep. They put on their little hats. They put on their arrogant smiles. Then they engage in the same mob mentality they eschew from their Greek pillars. Bastards.

Chewy national security...

Ssssteve said...

I'm with Fiar on this one!!

Insolublog said...

Damian - And it has about the same nutritional value, too.

Ssssteve - Remember in November. Spread the word... widely.

Wyatt Earp said...

Brilliant, as always! Like the drawings.

Thanks, Wyatt.
