Wednesday’s Hero: Lt. Col. Nathan Blood

Lt. Col. Nathan Blood, brigade effects coordinator for 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light), Multi-National Division – Baghdad, says “Hello” to his 16-month-old daughter, Mackenzie, during a web camera communication.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Picture Of The Day

Some Denver pro-lifers are going for a world’s record for the largest protest sign, ever:

Local pro-life advocates in Denver have unfurled what they claim is the largest protest sign ever assembled and they are hoping to obtain a Guinness World Record as a result. The pro-life advocates made an official attempt to enter the record book with the pro-life sign showing the Democratic Party promotes abortion.

The pro-life activists spelled out the words “Destroys Unborn Children” in a 530-foot tall and 666-foot wide message using white and yellow bed sheets.

They initially spelled out the letters DNC, referring to the Democratic National Committee, in yellow sheet and then used white sheets to complete the three words pointing to its pro-abortion position ratified yesterday in its platform.

The sheets were placed on the side of a large hill that is part of the Rock Mountains west of Denver and, because of its massive size, can be seen from almost anywhere in Denver, which is hosing the Democratic convention.

The DNC prime time speakers are staying away from the subject of abortion, I’ve noticed. This sign is a nice little reminder of what the party really stands for.

Check Out “Hype”

“Hype”, from Citizens United Productions premiered at the DNC on August 24, and will run again at the RNC in Minneapolis on September 3. As you have no doubt guessed, the film is about the Obama candidacy.

Here’s the trailer:

Another Democrat Has Trouble With Obama’s “Funny Name”

Wow, these awkward slips of the tongue just keep happening:

Former Texas Rep. Charlie Wilson — yes, that Charlie Wilson — was speaking at an anti-war rally when he, um, flubbed a line:

“We should be led by Osama bin Laden,” he said, then quickly corrected himself. “I mean Obama and Biden.”


Of course that’s just the latest of a long string of similar freudian slips flubs. Here are some more notable members of the Osama/Obama flub club.

Dean Singleton, Chairman of The AP:

Who can forget Ted Kennedy’s extensive faux pas:

An ABC News anchor:

Dan Rather said Jesse Jackson paved the way for Osama Bin Laden (huh?!) as the others on the panel stared blankly:

Chris Matthews got it wrong two days in a row,  saying Obama instead of Osama when speaking of the terrorist.

Here Chris Matthews gets his name right,….but that’s not the problem….

Even CNN isn’t immune:

Anyway, you get my point. Democrats really do seem to have a hard time with what Obama likes to call his “funny name”.

Republicans have a hard time, too. They keep pronouncing Obama’s middle name as “Hussein”, lol.
