Tactical Nuke: Tuesday, October 23, 2012

• No, I didn't write a tac-nuc yesterday. So what?

  Ok, sorry...I sort of dropped the ball on that.

• Debate 1, Romney destroyed Obama.

• Debate 2, Romney won, but barely. Obama got away with too many lies. Call it a draw if you like.

• Debate 3, Romney kicked Obama's butt. It wasn't even close. At least 50% of the president's words were "uhh" or "umm".

• Line of the night: (paraphrasing) "We won't show more flexibility to Russia after the election. We'll show more backbone." - Mitt Romney

• Bob Schieffer actually did a fair job trying to be unbiased. He refused being a lifeline for Obama at least 3 or 4 times, and asked questions that setup Romney for some zingers.

  But then, he is really old...so he probably forgot which one was the Democrat.

• Best way to enjoy these debates: don't listen to the pundits afterwards...because they prepared their statements before the debate even started. Fox: Romney won. MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN: Obama won.

  Romney destroyed Obama. 'Nuff said.

• Carry on.


  1. Romney was confident and courteous. Very presidential. He allowed Obama to bury himself.

  2. Btw, walkingdead, VOTE! It will make you feel big and strong.

  3. Haha and Keln, it's *Tuesday I think. :P If you didn't like my blog idea, maybe I could just be the blog proofreader. :)

    1. Generally, since hiring Walkingdead, that has been my job. And you will take notice that, though I do occasionally have typos and the like, it is quite rare. Why? Because when something is underlined in red, I consider that a bad thing, not "flare" like some people around here.

      Problem is, there is no spell check on titles, and being a very fast typist, that is where many of my typos survive into publishing. The title block is just so unassuming and easy to miss when proofreading.

      You know...proofreading...that thing that some people around here don't do because shooting from the hip seems more exciting or something.

  4. Hahaha that was teasing...not the same as criticism.

    I think your blog is well done. I like the balance between the serious and the ridiculous. Life needs a bit of both.

    Maybe if I get inspired, I'll send on another idea or two. This is new territory for me. I think like an engineer, not a journalist. The fact that I used to edit Lactose's papers doesn't make me a writer. It makes HIM a writer and me a proofreader.

    1. Well done? I prefer medium rare.

      Actually, we aren't supposed to be serious, I just slip up now and then. Like my Understanding the Left series. That was really my personal journey to understand those looneys. It got serious, and probably boring.

      You keep talking about some idea you came up with. I'm not being a jerk here, but I missed it. If you emailed me, it could have gone to junk mail. That happens, try again.

      Oh, and hiding behind the fact that you're an engineer...weak sauce! I'm in nuclear. Yes, I can do lots of calculus, calculate the size of a material after it has been cold worked, go into an in-depth discussion of reactor vessel head corrosion cracking, and figure out how many atoms were in a sneeze.

      Engineers and technologists develop a natural sense of humor after having to go through all of those kinds of classes. And we have to be able to write.

      No excuses...write something. Send it. If it sucks, I will say "this sucks, try again". And then try again.

      You only live once, but you can write millions of times.

    2. I sent it again. Geez.

      Medium rare is disgusting. Mostly alive, I would say. I prefer mostly dead. :P
