Witness: Striker was the squadron leader. He brought us in real low. But he couldn't handle it.
Prosecutor: Buddy couldn't handle it? Was Buddy one of your crew?
Witness: Right. Buddy was the bombardier. But it was Striker who couldn't handle it, and he went to pieces.
Prosecutor: *Andy* went to pieces?
Witness: No. Andy was the navigator. He was all right. Buddy went to pieces. It was awful how he came unglued.
Prosecutor: *Howie* came unglued?
Witness: Oh, no. Howie was a rock, the best tailgunner in the outfit. Buddy came unglued.
Prosecutor: And he bailed out?
Witness: No. Andy hung tough. Buddy bailed out. How he survived, it was a miracle.
Prosecutor: Then Howie survived?
Witness: No, 'fraid not. We lost Howie the next day.
Prosecutor: Over Macho Grande?
Witness: No. I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande

Harry Freakstorm: The day after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Nagasaki, and four days after the bombing of Hiroshima, Davis - by then a lieutenant colonel and commander of the 8th Fighter Group - led 62 P-38 planes that dropped napalm on Kumamoto.

"The two big bombs got their attention, and my 62 P-38s brought them to the table," he says.

Okay pops. Whatever you say.


No, he was right: The 62 P-38s brought them to the table, because we had destroyed their ability to open canned goods.

They needed the P-38s if they were going to open the canned tuna.

I survived the war making movies. It was difficult. Sometimes you had to be up before dawn and the studio car wasn't a limo on account of the gas rationing. And they were training films. They don't give Oscars to the guy who was Syphilis Suffer Number 5. And I should know. I played Army Doctor to Syphilis Sufferer Number 5. But the funny thing was, he really had syphilis.


Number of things Obama made: 0 - Just another leech lawyer, stealing from the rest of us, getting by on the color of his skin.
