Eight things every Obama supporter should believe ...

  1. His kids went to school with Zbigniew Brzezinski.
  2. With God’s help, Obama learned how to sleep in church with his eyes open.
  3. When Obama says “Hope”, you’re supposed to say “How high?”
  4. Every time Obama says “Change”, Arkansas and Kentucky change places.
  5. Iran doesn’t really have a president, but Canada does.
  6. “Preconditions” are those stripy pants that diplomats wear.
  7. Obama’s grandmother burned down the Reichstag. It was totally not cool.
  8. Ambition is Poverty. And he should know.

To the Names of the Unknown

The regimental chaplain, if any, who usually attends the burials from the hospital, should make notes and communicate details to the captain of the company, and to the family at home. Of course it is usually impossible to mark the graves with names, dates, etc., and consequently the names of the "unknown" in our national cemeteries equal about one-half of all the dead.
