|We had eight years of Ronald Reagan. When Gorbachev ended the cold war Reagan blustered about evil empires and grabbed the credit. He sent hundreds of marines to Beirut for no good reason only to see them get blown to pieces for no reason at all. He invaded Grenada to draw attention away from the slaughter and scored a glorious victory against an impoverished speck of an island with no army, navy, or air force. He armed the whacked out Iranian mullahs in order to finance the whacked out Nicaraguan contras. The former took our weapons and the latter our dough and both had a good laugh at our expense. He grew senile in office and no one noticed the difference. He was a feeble doddering old fool who in his younger days was just a fool.
We had four years of George H.W. Bush. He used the mightiest army in the world to invade Panama and had to blast its leader out of hiding with rock music. He sent half a million troops to rescue one tin pot tyrant from another and by the time he was done both tyrants were exactly where they started. Jules Pfeiffer cartooned him as a short panted knee socks wearing stick ankled schoolboy milquetoast and exaggerated his manliness.
We had eight years of Bill Clinton. He smoked pot but didn’t inhale. He parsed the meaning of two letter words. He chased big-haired loose-lipped bimbos who were as tepid about him as he was joyless about them. He fooled around with a young intern and only his cigar truly enjoyed her favors. He made the economy safe for the bond market and hazardous for welfare mothers. He humiliated the nation off Haiti and in Somalia. He turned his back on the slaughter in Rwanda and Bosnia. He came close to parking a cruise missile up Bin Ladin’s backside and was scared off by his political enemies before finishing the job. When his enemies publicly degraded him with a trumped up impeachment he took it and never laid a finger on them. The guy was a pussy.
We’ve had nearly eight years of George W. Bush. In between vacations and playing with his office wives he packed the country into a handcart and sent it to hell, just by bending over for Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld. He doesn’t even qualify as a pussy.
Now comes Hillary Clinton. She wants us all to go shoot ducks and squirrels and says she’ll obliterate Iran and insists she’s a fighter who’ll do anything she can to win and never ever gives up. She’s got my vote. It’s about time the country had a real man for president.

A NOTE TO READERS
There was nothing new at The Nossiter Net between March 3rd and April 26th, 2007, nearly eight weeks. The reason: tech sabotage. Yahoo Geocities, the host for this site, denied access for the entire period. At one point, they even managed to lose all the files. In many discussions with Yahoo staff, no clear explanation was forthcoming. No one seemed able to fix the problem. Ruling out the possibility of Dubbya’s revenge, I finally wrote to Mr. Terry Semel, Chairman and CEO of Yahoo! Inc and described the ordeal the page had undergone since the beginning of March. A week later, a helpful Yahooo engineer named Jason called. He had my letter before him. Though he couldn’t do the repairs on on the spot, he promised a fix by the next day. That was April 26th, nearly two months after shutting me down in the first place.
The Nossiter Net apologizes, which is more than I can say for Yahoo Geocities.
