Columns - A Cup O' Kapeng Barako

Let me tell y'all first right quick that it wasn't me who coined that word: "Pundit-in-Chief."  I am not that bright to be able to invent such a word.  It was Mr. Bush, our current commander in chief, who coined that word.  And because of Mr. Barack HUSSEIN Obama's soaring and inspiring and PLAGIARIZED speeches, that fool a lot of people, I agree with Mr. Bush. I don't usually agree with Mr. Bush, but this time, I do.

Mr. Bush can be so very witty at times.  Just like that time when he ordered our troops to find Mr. Saddam HUSSEIN.  He said then of HUSSEIN: "He can run, but he can't hide."  That was very witty and creative, I think.

Now Mr. Bush tells us that Mr. Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a "pundit-in-chief."  That's also very witty and very creative, I think.  As witty and creative in coining Karl Rove's nickname, "Turd Bloosom."   

HILLARY CLOBBERS BARACK: That was the banner headline that screamed in every newspaper all over the country Wednesday.  A friend, a colleague, and I'm sure, one of my fans, too, send me an email late Tuesday night right after the results of the primaries in Ohio, Texas, Vermont and Rode Island came out ... and she gushed:  "Hooray!  I knew she will win in Ohio and Texas and in Rhode Island, too."

So I emailed her back and said: "Hey, long time, no hear.  It's hooray, indeed!  We're going on, we're going strong and we're going all the way ... back to the White House.  Hillary to the Oval Office.  And Bill to the Oral Office.  Let the good times roll once more.  Hooray!"

I know.  I am such a nasty, dirty old man.

Seriously now, after 12 straight losses, Ms. Hillary's victories sent a message to the Obama juggernaut that clearly says: "Hey, Barack, my boy, not so fast!  I could still beat you and I will."

And, she will.  Her victories in Ohio and Texas, according to her advisers, were enough to keep her in the race at least through Pennsylvania's April 22 primary even IF Obama has more delegates.

And the results Tuesday, says The New York Times "bring doubts and questions about Obama's electability in key swing states like Ohio that Democrats are eager to carry in the November general election."

Not only that. 

Hillary has also won the powerhouse Democratic states of California, New Jersey and New York, but also major and key battleground states like, Arizona, Nevada, New Hampshire and New Mexico ... and this could persuade the superdelegates - the party's hundreds of leaders who have a vote on the nomination - to stop abandoning her for Obama.

In other words, Hillary is now the "hope" candidate.  And this battle between her and Obama could go all the way to the day of the national convention in Denver, Colorado in August.  Hillary said she'll soldier on to that day.  "I am a doer, I am fighter, I am a champion," she proclaimed.  Indeed she is.  She's been a politician who has been a known quantity for 16 years now.  She's been attacked from all sides, and she has always managed to prevail and win against all odds.

Each time her detractors think she's down, like after Iowa, for instance, or South Carolina, or the February primaries, Hillary has found ways to come back up.  She's like that mythical phoenix that keeps rising from the ashes of her defeats.

I truly think that only a fighter, a strong leader and a smart tough-minded woman, like Hillary, can get this country out of the filthy mess created by the Bush/Cheney/Rove administration.  Eloquent, inspiring, empty, and COPIED speeches of Obama will only lead to failure and despair.  Barack ain't got what it takes. 

To me, he's just a mirage created by a fawning media and by MSNBC talk heads, especially that one with a Mongoloid-looking fat face, named Tim Russert.

IGNORANT REMARKS: Have y'all heard what Mr. Obama said on CNN?  I kid you not.  Not on the Filipino CNN (Coconut News Ngayon) either, but on the mainstream CNN, Larry King Live talk show.  Obama was talking about the Army.  He said: "You know, I've heard from an Army captain who was a head of a rifle platoon - supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon.  Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to Iraq ... 

"As a consequence, they didn't have enough ammunition, they didn't have enough Humvees.  They were actually capturing Taliban weapons, because it was easier to get Taliban weapons than it would to get properly equipped by our current commander in chief...."

These are stupid, ignorant remarks.  Ask any soldier, any lowly grunt and he'll tell ya in between a cuss word or two that Barack Obama knows NOT what he talks about.

First of all, captains don't lead platoons.  Lieutenants lead platoons.  Captains lead companies, consisting of three or four platoons.  Secondly, platoons are not divided and sent to different war theaters.  They have trained together, so usually, they go to war together.  Thirdly, it's dangerous and a big no-no to be using captured enemy weapons.  The strange popping sound of the enemy weapons being fired is a magnet for "friendly" artillery fire from afar. 

Lastly, our troops are well equipped.  They may not have the armored Humvees and bullet proof vests, but compared to other soldiers, they are the best-equipped soldiers in the whole world.  Also, ammos are plentiful ... always.  Believe me, I know.  I was a soldier, a lowly grunt, once, in a long ago war.

And who was this Army captain that Mr. Obama had talked with, anyway?   Captain Kangaroo?  Yes, indeed, Mr. Bush is right to call Mr. Obama, "PUNDIT-IN-CHIEF."  For his empty words soar, like a balloon, full of helium, spiraling toward the sky.
