I am tired of the blitzkreig of horror that gets unleashed on each Republican front runner who isn’t named Mitt. One by one, the emerged, and were subsequently savaged.

Blitzkrieg

How about spelling Blitzkrieg correctly in the title?

Blitzrieg.

Blitzrieg is what everyone called the food at the Never Feltwell Cafe’. It was one of the few places where the chili con furry bubbled more when it was cold than when it was hot. And the food made an attack everyone went mobile in the air if they didn't land right quick.

The Cafe’s motto is “Every Customer is a Potential Survivor”

I am sick with Obama fatigue
With a man clearly out of his league
Better off with Lewinsky
Than this child of Alinsky
As I wait for the next lib blitzkrieg

Ever notice how that K looks like a headless figure waving to you? Might be one of those suborbital influences working on us.

I thought a blintz was one of Anna's Rain Dear. A guy is working in the yard, painting the cinder blocks under the lawn autos and he takes a small libation or two of “Old Furnace Maker” and finds himself blintzed up the krieg.
The wife says, “Come in from the rain dear, you're blintzed! Again”.

I've been to Paris, Il-annoya and it's nothing like that. Look at the cereal with “O”s. Looks like little life rings floating around....with nobody in them!

James R. says look at bran flakes, same as brain flakes, soy milk, Soylent. James R. will explain it when his writing privileges are restored.

Rain on the way today, but right now it is mostly cloudy and a springlike 68 out-

I really hope that Israel will
Repeat what they’ve done before-
Treat Iran to a blitzkrieg that
Blows their nuke dreams out the door

Just do it now, and tell no one
That the reckoning could come today-
Screw Obama’s wait-for-November
He doesn’t live in Israel anyway

He just fears that he’ll be shown
As a cowardly, sniveling ‘rat-
Who needs to step down so that someone
With cojones can pick up the bat

The hapless Komen Foundation was utterly unprepared for the blitzkrieg launched by the baby-killers at PP and their deplorable tools in the U.S. Senate.

Last night I tried to donate to them after their decision to cut off funding. I couldn't get on their website. Now I'm glad I didn't!
