The most cheerful post of the day Update: Two we’ve got two!

Posted: January 8, 2011 by datechguy in blogs

This post yesterday over at the Other McCain seems unremarkable, a simple statement against the fed but the start of the post was special:

by Smitty

It’s good to see that #1 Smitty is ok, and #2 He’s still got it.

Stay well Smitty, hope to see you home soon.

Update: a toofer!

Simply put, Peggy, you know jack-all about Jones, Halsey, Zumwalt, leadership, the military, and what we should do in the case of Honors. He’s a great litmus test; anyone in an authority position who things that cashiering him was a good idea should, instead, be cashiered.
Salon, in a takes-a-clown-to-know-one moment, pegged you so beautifully:

Her recurring theme is a return to the innocence and purity of the past. Specifically the “Mad Men” era, or just before it. She allows herself Camelot-worship (as Reagan did), but it’s Eisenhower she pines for.

Peggy, just stick to writing about Reagan, please.

That’s gotta smart.

Over at the other McCain the Christmas Present of the day has been given, a post from Smitty.

Remember when the Christmas bills come and that sweater looks a little odd, think of a soft-spoken man 12,000 miles from home who is spending his Christmas serving his country and his friends and the hundreds of thousands just like him, and give thanks.

Smitty is deploying today

He just tweeted his goodbyes.

As you might guess I have a lot on my mind today but this puts things in perspective.

Next to Smitty’s situation the success or failure of a radio show is totally insignificant.

God keep you safe Smitty

Smitty may God bless you

There were a lot of touching Veterans day posts today but the most touching was Smitty’s announcement of his last post for the duration of his deployment.

I’ve been aware of his impending deployment for a while, things being how they are in Afghanistan REMF or no there is not guarantee of safety anywhere in the nation.

I would hope that even those who have disagreed with Smitty over the years will respect the service he will be doing on behalf of all of us. On a personal note. Smitty has hosted me in his house. We have shared our troubles with each other and laughed together.

I look forward to the day that he comes home and we can laugh together again.
