General, sir, I salute you.

Hey, everybody. I'm still on a very lengthy (permament?) life-induced bloggy hiatus, and I've missed many blogworthy topics. Hurricanes, John Roberts, North Korean lies, oh yeah a baby daughter, etc etc and so on and so forth. But I couldn't let this bit of... out-freakin'-STAND-ing word usage pass by this blog.

Yesterday, Lieutenant General Honore- who by now needs no introduction- came up with the perfect retort to our growing national problem of journalistic despotism. (If anybody can think of a better phrase for what we let the MSM get away with these days, let me know.) Some Idiotic Reporter™ (this phrase, on the other hand, has been deemed A-OK by the Department of Reduncy Department™ -Admin) was asking question after question about "last time"- basically he seemed to be implying that the government could be expected to make a gaggle out of Rita preparations similar to the gaggle before, during, and after Katrina. General Honore answered his question and tried to move on. The reporter kept coming back to the same thing, basically doing what MSM reporters always do when they don't get the answer they want- or have already decided is the answer they'll go with- he simply kept pestering the General with the same crap, worded differently.


The Idiotic Reporter™ found out that General Honore is, um, not very political. Let alone politically correct. Check it out:

Idiotic reporter: General, a little bit more about why that's happening this time, though, and did not happen that last time...

Honore: You are stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that question. We are going to deal with Rita.

That's the money line. The rest is just as good:

Transcript (with audio)- Radio Blogger
Video- The Political Teen

Priceless. And I'm on the same wavelength with Radio Blogger here-

I'd pay money to see David Gregory in the White House Press Corps foaming at the mouth over something trivial Scott McClellan said, and have McClellan say, "David, you're stuck on stupid. I'm not going to answer that."

I'd have fallen out of my chair if John Roberts would have listened to Joe Biden ramble on, and said, "Don't get stuck on stupid, Senator."

Heh, indeed. I urge all Americans, when confronted with stupidity- be it original flavor or that special MSM blend- to reply with "You are stuck on stupid".

Hmm. Stuck On Stupid™. We could redo the acronym SOS with this one.

Oh, and while I've got your attention, I've been thinking of changing my blogospheric name from "Army NCO Guy" to "The Mulatto Maker". Whatch'y'all think?

A new baby daughter? Congratulations! (and good post, by the way, but the new baby definitely deserves first mention.)
