    You know, Peter, it’s sad to me: faced with our foreign challenges, it’s all too difficult to find anyone able to deploy a sense of humor — from the President on down to the rest of us. Different times, to be sure. But I can’t help but feel there’s something lost in what’s left of our comic sense, too…our crumbling knack for narrative, our loss of wit, our growing inability even to be vulgar and funny at the same time. Pardon the glumness, but there it is!

    How about providing the URL for those of us behind the Irony Curtain?

    Love it! I love that Man too.

    Mr. Poulos, chalk that loss up to the insidious disease infiltrating Our culture known as “political correctness.”

    Peter, I can’t put into words how incredibly proud I was to be on active duty with Ronald Reagan as my Commander in Chief. His leadership permeated the ranks and made me want to be a better troop right down to the spit-shine on my boots. I miss him.

    For you, James:

    President Christie and President Ahmadinejad are in the restroom at the U.N. After finishing up at the urinals, Ahmadinejad heads for the sink to wash up, while Christie goes straight for the door. “Hey, President Christie,” says Ahmadinejad, “in the Islamic Republic of Iran, we wash our hands after urinating.” “Well, Mahmud,” Christie replies, “in the United States of America, we don’t pee on our hands.”

    I almost posted that on Ricochet Facebook last night!! What are the chances Chris Christie would run for president in 2012? He’s the antidote.

    Peter Robinson: President Christie, President Christie.

    Hm.

    My ten year old was watching something in the news in Germany this morning and there was a black person on TV. He was trying to be politically correct and called him an “African German”.
