Nosing Around the Zoo.

Mmmmmm. People!

Never Enough Nukes For the Teabag Queen.

Wow, so Obama is not pro-drilling enough he is also not pro-nukes enough, even though its the same nuke policy Reagan talked about. Not that I would expect Palin to have any sense of U.S. history as far back as twenty some years ago. She is such a Teabag Celeb! Hannity and Bachmann are full of it too.

Palin: Obama nuke strategy is like kid saying ‘punch me in the face’

Hot Politicians

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin may not really be able to see Russia from her front yard, but she did weigh in on President Barack Obama's overhaul of US policy on the use of nuclear weapons. Calling the president's move "unbelievable," Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity that "no administration in America's history would, I think, ever have considered such a step that we just found out President Obama is supporting today."
Said Palin: "It's kind of like getting out there on a playground, a bunch of kids, getting ready to fight, and one of the kids saying, 'Go ahead, punch me in the face and I'm not going to retaliate. Go ahead and do what you want to with me.'
The Obama administration on Tuesday unveiled new limits
on the nation's nuclear arsenal, saying it would only use atomic weapons in "extreme circumstances" and would not attack non-nuclear states.  The administration said for the first time that countries without atomic weapons which complied with non-proliferation treaty obligations need not fear a US nuclear attack.  But President Barack Obama warned exceptions could be made for "outliers" such as Iran and North Korea, which are both accused of flouting UN resolutions.
"The president is saying that if there is a biological, chemical attack against the United States of America, or if there is a cyberattack, a major cyberattack, if it's a country that is part of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, then America has taken nuclear weapons off the table," Fox host Hannity said at a rally in Minnesota for Rep. Michele Bachmann.
"It's unacceptable," Palin responded. "This is another thing that the American public -- the more that they find out what is a part of this agenda -- they are going to rise up and they are going to say 'no more.' National security, national defense is the number one job of the federal government

Under the Dome

    Under the Dome Final.jpg

A little longer than it probably needed to be, but a very fun read.  A nice twilight-zone type ending. I was hoping a book this size would be as fantastic as the Stand and It but I guess those two King masterpieces can never be matched.

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
