FOR ALL YOUR COMBAT NEEDS
The 1000 Fighting Styles of Donald Rumsfeld.

I have tremendous fondness for that man.
The 1000 Fighting Styles of Donald Rumsfeld are so great! Make it, really, 1000; c'mon, there're only, like, 21 up on the site, now!
Leading query: What in the world is a possible caption for the Drunken Temple Boxing shot? I can't imagine the conversation which would prompt someone, in response, to put their two hands into those positions. Help, here, people: caption time.
Maybe he was saying something to the effect of "There is no way we are going in there in that manner..." where he emphasizes 'that' with the karate chop.
Shows how little you all know......Rummy is obviously an angry man in need of anger management.....
Goose Frappa...Goose Frappa.....all together now the chorus from "I feel pretty"......."I feel pretty...."
Unlike John Kerry who is a picture of composure...you never see John get upset about issues...unless someone has explained them to him ...then he might....
Today Polier and John are denying that they ever had sex.......apparently she loves Kenya..who wouldn't ......there's a lovely drive out of Nairobi.....any drive OUT of Nairobi is lovely...the night life is sensational....flashing lights ; green, amber, red, amber and back to green.....who could miss out on that......
Maybe they really didn't have sex......before, Polier said Kerry was the shittest lay she'd ever had...he was furious...."How the fuck could she tell all that in 6 seconds....."
Mind you when Kerry visited that 62 year old hooker, with a hole the size of the Grand Canyon, she asked him if he had taken any precauction....
"Yes, Ive tied my foot to the corner of the fucking bed......."
Altogether John ....."I feel pretty, oh so pretty..."
that rummy is one cool dude. i heard on the radio that he was judged as one of the 100? most macho men in the world by some magazine. hilary clinton made the cut too.
Whoever she squeezed out to get onto the list would be mightily pissed and may have psychological issues going forward.
Next up: 1000 French nuances of John Kerry.
1. I voted for the war
2. I did not support the war.
3. I served in Vietnam.
4. I deserted my command in Vietnam.
5. I am a Vietnam Hero.
6. I supported the enemy in Vietnam.
7. My wife and I are worth $600 million.
8. I am a common man.
9. I am not influenced by special interests.
10. I take more special interest money than anyone.
etc, etc, etc.
You don't really begin to notice it until you look at more pictures of him.
Does anyone know what Traps is going on about?
goose frappa goose frappa!
Yeah -- everyone knows about goose frappa!
oh, silly me, goose frappa...
Tremendous. A big improvement from John "Missile Finger" Kerry. He's got one move when he speaks. He launches the index finger over and over and over.
His combat techniques are even more effective after he causes you to lose focus with another famous move of his "pregnant tiger pause"
I do like Donald Rumsfeld. One of the few public figures who's not afraid to be himself and say what he really thinks.
the starbucks around the corner has goose frappas on the menu, i think...
I'm looking at these pictures while imagining the full flow of his legendary 'I know you know I'm not going to answer that question. So I won't and you're a fool for asking' press conference jujitsu. Never has one man implied so many are so stupid without being strung up from the nearest tree.
Where's Tyrant Smackdown Fist and Old Europe Pimpslap? They are key weapons in the Rumsfeld ORBAT.
What was that flick with Sean Connery as a US Army LtC? The one where he tells the big fat biker "Now, I'm gonna kick your ass. But to make it fair, I'm only gonna use one finger..."
The movie was The Presidio and also starred Mark Harmon. Sean Connery is the other 70 something gentleman I find very sexy. He ranks a bit higher than Donald Rumsfeld, but Donny is closing in with each appearance before the press and/or Congress.
i think the movie was actually "The Rock" and he beat the guy up with his left thumb. he was an SAS commando who had escaped Alcatraz, and they wanted him to break back in and take out the Marine Recon Unit who threatened the use nerve gas on San Francisco. completely stupid movie, except for that bit.
Polly is right, "The Presidio". Mark Harmon as the SFPD roller, Meg Ryan (pre-puffy lips) as Sean's daughter. (??)
Polly was right -- it was "The Presidio", another movie not especially memorable (except for certain scenes, most especially including the thumb-fighting scene!).
In re Rumsfeld, I still think that Lileks pegged him perfectly:
> Today at the Pentagon press briefing, a reporter
> asked about Humanitarian Crisis, and Rumsfeld
> described at great length the humanitarian
> crisis that existed before the Allies got there,
> and how things were actually improving. It was
> classic Rummy; he not only refused to accept the
> premise of the question, he refuted it like a
> blacksmith working out marital frustrations on a
> red-hot horseshoe. You can just imagine what
> some of the reporters say to one another as they
> leave the briefing:
> I say, whatís that in your hands, there? That
> pink thing?
> Oh, this? Itís my ass. Rumsfeld handed it to me.
> And I see you have a nice clock there - brand
> No, itís quite old, but Rumsfeld cleaned it.
> Free of charge.

70+ and still rocking.
The man is a genius. Simple as that.
Not in the realm of reality but a Rummy Vs Saddam cage match would be the number one sporting event of the month. Perhaps Celebrity Death Match need to pull their fingers out and get that one made.
IMHO, Rummy vs. Saddam fight would never happen, sadly. Saddam would be placed in the cage by his handlers, promptly blow a blood vessel in terror and drop dead. Because that's the sort of guy he is and because Rumsfeld is a TOTAL and UTTER BADASS. And everyone knows it, even dense EU diplomats, sense that he is not Like Them. He Is The Enemy, Because He Has Cojones. They do not understand, but they fear. Nytimes.com archives, about 2 wks. ago- Rumsfeld drops all pretenses and just lays down the business.

Is rummysfelt really 70 ears old? He is one bad MoF0.
May I speak as cogently, as congruently and as concisely as Don Rumsfeld when I'm 70... and every month of every year from now to then...

Shut your mouth!
"Only talkin' about Rummy."
We can dig it!
