    Ret. General Norman Schwarzkopf, the often thoughtful commander of the US led Gulf War coalition has died. He was 78.
    RIP, General, and thanks for your service to our country.

    The lads in the WhiteHouse Press Office were probably busy humpin' each other, delivering the latest WhiteHouse LeftMedia marching orders to mediamatters for dissemination out to the larger media community, or otherwise too busy to care. Question, how many "I's" will Obama be able to cram into an address should he delivers one for the late General? Schwarzkopf was a Republican the Libs hated bitterly so it wouldn't be entirely unexpected if he delivered one filled wall to wall with his favorite pronoun. The only Generals Libs really like, anyway, are the ones with Eric Holder applied pairs of vicegrip pliers clamped to their testicles, ie David Petraeus

    Stormin' Norman Gone

    General Schwarzkopf passes and the news is all over the media, including the blogosphere. We all remember his reputation from the first Iraq war but few talk about what made is reputation of being a soldier's soldier.

    Read the following and see what earned him two Silver Stars, a Distinguished Service Cross, two Bronze Stars for Valor, and two Purple Hearts – none of it for political purposes like some we all know.
    He was the type of officer men willingly followed anywhere, any time. My he find peace eternal.
