any word on what the du think of this quote? -just curious, but not enough to go look.
He didn't say "over" unless you are listening to something different than I have.
He said, "You are stuck on stupid. Hooah."
See above if you don't believe me. Others heard the good General say "Hooah" twice, as emphasis to what he had said.
I think that we can agree, for example, that the NO evacuation plan broke down, given that the school buses sat unused in a flooded parking lot. That was not the plan.
However, we disagree about the plan regarding disarming the evacuees. The plan was always to require that people be disarmed in order to be eligible for government evacuation.
Consider the following scenario: The evacuation buses will be used as per the NO plan. However, even numbered buses will be labelled with a large, red circle with a picture of a gun with a slash through it. Evacuees who wish to have everyone disarmed may board such buses and take comfort that only the government and those who will not obey the rules will be armed.
The odd numbered buses will be labelled with a large, green sign with a picture of a gun on it. Evacuees will be permitted to bring their firearms and will be evacuated to a place where all may be armed.
Now the critical question. Which bus will you board? And will you be armed?
You are correct. The "Over" is my invention. When I have seen Honore remotely interviewed he often uses the "Over" comm protocol. It is just another aspect of that makes him something very special.
BTW: I am hearing quote on Fox News right now. LOL
The audio version is priceless.
Any idea who the S.O.S. reporter was?
Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita. This is public information that people are depending on the government to put out. This is the way we've got to do it. So please. I apologize to you, but let's talk about the future. Rita is happening. And right now, we need to get good, clean information out to the people that they can use. And we can have a conversation on the side about the past, in a couple of months.
You gotta read it all...this General's a riot!
Oh man, this is GREAT! If Honore isn't on the upcoming Presidential ballot then I'm gonna write him in!
Bwahahahahahaha! (When is this guy up for retirement, and is there any chance he'd be interested in a second career as a Presidential Press Secretary?)
Don't be insulting. I was using the "daddy" term in that it's time someone law down the law and "git r done" withouth the whiney, "mommy" aspects of most pinhead politicians.
Did anyone see this at the end of Brit Hume's show?
It was priceless!
