  • Naval expert: Ships shown during Democratic convention tribute to veterans were Russian

    Daily Caller ^ | Sept. 12, 2012 | David Martosko
    The Democratic National Convention’s final night included a stirring tribute to America’s veterans from a retired naval four-star admiral, complete with a backdrop of jets flying over a row of proud warships. But convention organizers may soon regret it. Norman Polmar, author of “The Naval Institute Guide to the Soviet Navy” and other military handbooks, told the Navy Times on Tuesday that the ships were Russian vessels. “The ships are definitely Russian,” Polmar told the military newspaper. “There’s no question of that in my mind.” The ships depicted in the Democrats’ backdrop had radar designs that the U.S. fleet doesn’t...

    Politico ^ | 3/12/11 9:48 PM EST | By JONATHAN MARTIN & KENDRA MARR
    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s suggestion Saturday that the Revolutionary War began in Concord, N.H., rather than Lexington and Concord, Mass., marks the third time in recent months that the potential GOP presidential hopeful has committed a puzzling gaffe about history and current affairs. Making her first trek to New Hampshire as a 2012 prospect, Bachmann told a GOP crowd in Manchester: “You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord.” The Revolutionary War began, not in New Hampshire’s capital, but in the famous two towns more than 50 miles away in...

    Fox News pays Sarah Palin as a contributor to their network. And apparently to be “fair and balanced,” they also pay Judith Miller and Liz Trotta to make fun of Sarah Palin: LINK TO THE VIDEOUPDATE: Here’s what was said: LIZ TROTTA: “Alessandra Stanley [of the New York Times] had the best line [in her Nov. 11 review]. She said the new [Palin TLC] show was like ‘The Sound of Music’ without the Nazis, without the romance and without the music.” JUDITH MILLER (laughing): ”Oh, the Washington Post hated it, too . . .

  • Barack Obama Top 10 Bloopers of 2009

    This is the Barack Obama Top 10 Bloopers of 2009 list, a complement and follow-up to my Top 10 Obama Failures of 2009 list. The Barack Obama Top 10 Bloopers of 2009 list is exclusively related to unflattering moments that the man caused for himself by his own bumbling; the latter list was strictly policy critiques. Due to the popularity of the failures list, I now bring to you a compilation of Obama humiliating himself all throughout 2009; in these ever-darkening times of non-stop deficits, double-digit unemployment rates, and attempted terrorism, laughter at the expense of Obama is among the...

    Then there is the catalogue of Mr. Obama's embarrassing moments on the world stage, a list which includes: giving England's Queen Elizabeth II an iPod with his speeches on it; giving British Prime Minister Gordon Brown a collection of DVDs that were not formatted to the European standard (by contrast, Mr. Brown gave Mr. Obama an ornamental desk-pen holder made from the oak timbers of Victorian anti-slaver HMS Gannet, among other historically significant gifts); calling "Austrian" a language; bowing to the Saudi king; releasing a photo of a conference call with Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in which the president...

    1. A man comes into the ER and yells, "My wife's going to have her baby in the cab!" I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's dress, and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly I noticed that there were several cabs - and I was in the wrong one. Submitted by Dr. Mark MacDonald, San Antonio, TX. 2. At the beginning of my shift I placed a stethoscope on an elderly and slightly deaf female patient's anterior chest wall. "Big breaths," I instructed. "Yes, they used to be," replied the patient. Submitted by Dr....

  • Coalition Shows Zarqawi Outtakes During Press Event

    BAGHDAD, May 4, 2006 – Coalition officials here today showed the "outtakes" of terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's latest anti-coalition screed, and it became quickly apparent why they ended on the cutting-room floor, so to speak. In one, Zarqawi -- the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq -- has trouble trying to operate an automatic weapon. An associate has to show him how to do it. Later in the same shot, an associate takes the weapon from Zarqawi by the barrel and burns his hand. In another, the feared terrorist is shown in a black uniform and bright blue "tenny pumps."...

    Putin's nuclear show blows up in his face By Julius Strauss in Moscow (Filed: 18/02/2004) Russia's biggest military exercise since the collapse of communism flopped yesterday, ruining an attempt to project Vladimir Putin as a global leader and reaffirm the country's status as a nuclear superpower. With Mr Putin and a host of military officials watching from the nuclear submarine Arkhangelsk, two intercontinental ballistic missiles went wrong during a firing from a submarine believed to be the Novomoskovsk. They were aimed at Kamchatka on the Pacific coast. A malfunctioning satellite was blamed. Putin promised that Russia will again be a...

    The Iron Curtain Fell? The Soviet Union ceased its existence a dozen years ago, but it lives on in the mind of Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor. He made no fewer than four references to the USSR in his appearance Dec. 1 on "Hardball with Chris Matthews" on the subject of Iran's nuclear ambitions. "The key, I believe, to Iran is pressure through the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union is supplying much of the equipment that Iran, I believe, most likely is using to set itself along the path of developing nuclear weapons. We need to use that leverage...

    If you've ever watched those TV blooper shows, you know how funny slip-ups, gaffes and blunders can be. But while laughter may be good for the soul, it's certainly not the response you want your resume to produce. Baby Boomers (or Gen-X and Gen-Y fans of Nick at Nite) will recall the often hilarious pronouncements of Archie Bunker, the patriarch of the popular 1970s sitcom "All in the Family." With just a slight slip of the tongue, Archie's intended meanings frequently became completely convoluted (e.g., "consecration" instead of "concentration" and "mental pause" instead of "menopause"). If your resume contains any...

    The hottest video collection in the Arab world, known as the Death to America Series, is selling out so quickly in Qatar, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Syria, Abu Dhabi and Algeria that the video-store chain CamelsBallBusters has had to post security guards outside their franchises to protect store clerks from disappointed customers. The collection, produced by WeLuvBinLaden Productions (the same people who created the very popular game show World Jewish Conspiracy Jeopardy), has been excerpted on CNN recently and has also been the subject of much analysis by State Department policy and defense wonks. It features speeches, conferences and...

    Bloopers Gone Wild It's official: KKT's propensity for getting things upside down and backward in her speeches is not a legitimate election issue. So says Towson University professor Michael Vatz in Monday's edition of The (Baltimore) Sun. According to Vatz, ``There are lines that negative criticism should not cross," including ``Ms. Townsend's inarticulateness and gaffes. This is a point that may well be considered by voters, but it is not legitimate as an issue." Nevertheless, the press corps is keeping a growing anthology of ``KKT's Bloopers Gone Wild," including, of course, her famous congratulations to the NFL's Baltimore Ravens for...
