I hope you shoot better than you dress!

May 7, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m amazed by the Secret Service agents who protect our president. You never see a firearm, yet you know they’re ready for action. Is it like that all over?

No, sometimes you actually catch a brief glimpse of gun, in places like Georgia.

You mean like the guys who protect Jimmy Carter?

No, that other Georgia, in Europe or Russia or somewhere. Check out these triggermen.

Wow! All that firepower is to protect their leader?

So they SAY, but my theory is the guards are going after the person who advised the one in front to wear that shirt and tie together.

If that’s true, I hope they take him down instead of bringing him in for trial. I don’t want some stinking liberal jury letting him off to keep dressing other people.

Don’t worry, look at that firepower. This is one Brooks Brothers salesman who won’t hurt anyone else.

Another example of your sloppy journalism!! The caption says Saakashvili and his guards enter a staircase at the base, when from the photo it is clear they are entering it from the top!

That’s at the military base, not the … oh, I see, you’re just jerking my chain!

i think perhaps he is defending his ‘creative’ outfit (i dont want to get shot for using negative adjectives) because his mother had picked it out for him in the morning.
