A Very Brief Telephone Conversation.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:30 pm


John O’Neill: “Hello.”

John Kerry: “May I please speak with John O’Neill?”

John O’Neill: “Speaking.”

John Kerry: “Hi, John. This is John Kerry.”

John O’Neill: “I recognized your voice.”

John Kerry: “John. I have to tell you that you and those Swift Boat guys are really giving me a hard time, and I was wondering whether you might be interested in establishing some kind of truce.”

John O’Neill:

John Kerry: “Let me be frank, John. You know — sailor to sailor.”

John O’Neill:

John Kerry: “OK, well, I’m putting together a list of people I would like to have serve in my administration, if I win this thing in November. Seeing as how you are a former Navy officer and a Vietnam Vet, I was wondering whether you might be interested in serving as my Secretary of the Navy.”

John O’Neill: “‘Sailor to sailor’ did you say?”

John Kerry: “Absolutely.”

John O’Neill: “Shove off, asshole.”


Today on the McGreevey Front.

I sat down to chronicle the litany of horribles that is today’s political news in New Jersey. However, it turns out that there is no point in my doing so, because, again, The Bad Hair Blog and DynamoBuzz (see also here) have done a first rate job of bringing it all together.

A special congratulations to Fausta of The Bad Hair Blog for participating in a demonstration outside of Drumthwacket, the Governor’s mansion in New Jersey.

Not having to compose a roundup has provided me with the time to do something I have been meaning to do for quite some time, and that is to add The Bad Hair Blog to Mr. Blogroll.
