The GUILD 9-29-2003 My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys

Posted on 09/29/2003 10:13:55 AM PDT by Hillary's Lovely Legs

1. They were never looking for trouble.

2. But when trouble came, they faced it with courage.

3. They were always on the side of right.

4. They defended good people against bad people.

5. They had high morals.

6. They had good manners.

7. They were honest.

8. They spoke their minds and they spoke the truth, regardless of what people thought or "political correctness," which no one had ever heard of back then.

9. They were a beacon of integrity in the wild, wild West.

10. They were respected. When they walked into a saloon (where they usually drank only sarsaparilla), the place became quiet, and the bad guys kept their distance.

11. If in a gunfight, they could outdraw anyone. If in a fist fight, they could beat up anyone.

12. They always won. They always got their man. In victory, they rode off into the sunset.

As the blogger from MerdeInFrance so sagely observed of this cartoon, "Le Monde [Al-Jazeera] on the Seine misses the mark. We can't all be geniuses. The French still do not understand that 'cowboy' is a compliment."

Thank you!

Erm,
was there a line about "They always look great in jeans and chaps?"

Or is that too shallow ?
(Ok, so I am shallow).

We're pushing 38 degrees at present. Brrr.

Wow, some of these Hollywood types are deep thinkers, aren't they:

Norman ("All in the Family") Lear is hosting a $2,000-a-head fund-raiser tomorrow at his L.A. estate for Gen. Wesley Clark and persuading all his Hollywood friends to switch their allegiances from Sen. John Kerry and Howard Dean . (PageSix)

Looks like no one knows, or cares, where Gen. Empty Suit actually stands on the issues.

Kind of a drag? Al Gore remains a noncandidate for President, even though Broadway star Harvey Fierstein begged him to run when the ex-veep and wife Tipper visited his dressing room after the Saturday night performance of "Hairspray." Fierstein recounted: "I said, 'You know, Al, I grew up thinking that I could be Ethel Merman, and I never gave up my dream and now look at me. And you grew up thinking that someday you'd be President. If you just held onto to that dream, you, too, could have it come true.' But he just laughed." link

On the other hand, Al Gore would probably make a better-looking Ethel Merman than Harvey Fierstein.

California Recall Update:

Arnold seems to be pulling away. But Davis is running negative ads and Hillary says Arnold is a right winger and we should be afraid, very afraid, lol. Arnold has produced a bunch of positive ads, don't know if he has some negative ones tucked away "just in case" or not.

Here is a long article about the whole thing...the first part is really fun reading, the author interviewed Gray Davis's neighbors and NO ONE likes him...really, nobody. He is one strange duck but Warren Beatty says we should give him a break as he had an alcoholic abusive father.

GRAY DAVIS DOES NOT EVEN HAVE A DOG

Yes, Mr. M is running the marathon at 8 a.m. Sunday (10/12). Now that I review our schedule, it looks like we will be quite busy. Our first free time won't come till Sun. afternoon after the race, looks like, and I never know how Mr. M is going to feel after a marathon (sometimes energetic, sometimes completely exhausted). Oh well, maybe we can work something out at a later date.

I'm afraid it is going to be a cold winter up here. I like to froze to death last night but remained determined not to switch the heat on. Did have to close the bedroom window, though - it was way too chilly! Hope we get a lot of snow.

The only real reason I held out is that I'd have to go down to the basement and flip all the little "thingys" over to heat in the ventilation system. Well, that and the fact that I think it'll warm up by the weekend. Of course until then, I'm in sweats in the evening. I have a waterbed, so I'm toasty warm once I'm there! Of course, I have to fight the cat for space.

The NY Post's Cindy Adams outdid herself on this "gossip" item:
[Phillipine President Arroyo was attending the Broadway play "Nine" and it had been arranged for Cindy to get a quote from her afterwards.]

"But I couldn't. Because the enormous behind and ego and mouth of Richard Holbooke, who was once ambassador and whose huge career like his huge rear is behind him, physically blocked me. 'You just wait a minute,' he said for no reason other than to act important like he once was and/or keep a working reporter from doing her job. Everyone who saw talked about his boorishness — not just me."

Priceless....LOL!

I am also holding out on turning on my furnace. Last year I held out until November.

I did break down and close the windows. Something I rarely do. I love to sleep with it super cold.

This is a MUST read. Ambassador Wilson, who claims to be "non-political", gave a doozy of a speech in June.

When you have time, go HERE and read the excerpts....a sample:

[next year]...we'll be looking at $500 to $600 billion deficits and we'll still be looking at tremendous trade deficits and all that will start to make people wonder about things like tax cuts and all that stuff we ought to be wondering about anyway. The President wants to run away from that. He doesn't want to run as President. He wants to run as Commander in Chief. So if the Commander in Chief stuff isn't working very well for him and the President stuff isn't working very well for him, what's he gonna do? Start another war.

Clark’s presidential campaign reveals new links to Clintons

Gen. Wesley Clark’s late-starting presidential campaign shifted into second gear last week with a stop at the Citadel, where he questioned the Bush administration’s Iraq policy and laid claim to being the Democrats’ peace candidate.

But the retired NATO supreme commander did little to dispel suspicion that his run for the White House is being stage-managed by former President Bill Clinton for the benefit of his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), both of whom deny it.

“Force is best used as a last resort,” Clark told an audience of some 250 cadets at the South Carolina military college, “and never because it just feels right.”

As it turns out, Clark was not asked to speak by Citadel officials, who charged his campaign $650 for the use of a parade field. [I was wondering about that!] The invitation came from Philip Lader, a visiting professor of government, who served as Clinton’s envoy to Great Britain. Lader, who founded Renaissance Weekends, the high-level self-awareness getaways where he met the Clintons, was once dubbed “ambassador touchy feely.”

Clark’s new spokeswoman, Mary Jacoby, former Washington correspondent for the St. Petersburg Times, also has close ties to the Clintons. Her father, Jon Jacoby, is executive vice president of Stephens Inc., the Clinton-connected Little Rock investment bank where Clark was employed after leaving the military. Jacoby has never worked on a political campaign before, but she once had a job as a file clerk at the Rose Law Firm, where Hillary Clinton was a partner. [At least she's well qualified, at least by Clinton standards] The Hill

________________

Another tidbit from The Hill (from the "With friends like these ..." file):

Javier Betancourt, onetime deputy press secretary for Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) embarrassed the Democratic presidential candidate several weeks ago by writing in a mass e-mail that Graham not only “lacked the charisma” to be chief executive, he doesn’t even want the job. “I know in my heart that Graham is really aiming for the VP slot (or rather, his wife is), so all he needs is an invitation,” wrote Betancourt, who suggested that Graham and ex-Vermont Gov. Howard Dean (D) would make the perfect “Bush-beating machine.”

Who wants an "anti-war general" as president. How ridiculous..I read somewhere that the Clintons may have made a big booboo with Clark because he is such an egomaniac that when it comes time for him to step aside to become Hil's veep, he will refuse and want to be on top of the ticket...hee hee...Course if that happens he may turn up in that park (Ft. Marcy) in D.C. where they found Vince Foster. Surely he is smart enough to know that..

Lovely Laura is in Moscow today.LINK 1 LINK 2

I like her suit much better than Mrs. KGBs..

First ladies of Russia Lyudmila Putin (L) and the U.S. Laura Bush (C) speak to pupils at a festival of school libraries in Moscow, October 1, 2003. A former school librarian, Bush told children at a Moscow book fair 'this festival is ... a celebration of freedom -- the freedom to write what we want to write and read the books that we want to read.'

Clark reminds me a little of McCain, with the hint that he's just this close to a meltdown. I certainly hope so!

Clark has joined the other dwarves in hitting up Hollywood for contributions, thread here.

The madness continues here in California...

Arianna has dropped out and will devote the rest of the week to bash Arnold and suggest a No vote on recall...Clinton is coming back this weekend to campaign with Davis.

Most of the folks I have talked to or eaves-dropped on have already voted by absentee ballot for Arnold...Even my neighbor friend (who happens to be black or African American or whatever is p.c. today) is voting for Arnold. She says because "he cannot be bought". Don't have to worry about Clinton swaying her either cause she has hated Clinton since Lewinsky.

Maria does not look at all healthy or pretty in this photo, IMO.

Let me add: A Fast Food emporium's uniform from the 60's

I read elsewhere here at FR that Laura had purchased some new duds for this trip. In the kindest, gentlest way, I have to say I like her old stuff better. The blue duster over grey pants and sweater from yesterday just didn't 'look like her'. If the jkt had been shortened to hip length, I'd have liked it alot better.

I'll need to see a few more shots of this asymetrical number before I pass judgement on it.
