Charles rides the Tube

by Rodan ( 68 Comments › )
Filed under UK at January 31st, 2013 - 9:00 pm

Charles the Prince of Wales and not the washed up blogger tries to reach out to the British public. The man who will never be King and his Un Mata Hari wife took a ride on the London  Underground, known as the tube. The ride was in honor of the 150th anniversary of the London Underground (which first opened in 1863).

Charles is washed up and like his name sake has had a nervous breakdown.

Update from Speranza: Anyone who has ever ridden the tube will understand  this – “Mind the gap”.

    Charles has probably never ridden the bus or underground ever in his life.

    Au contraire mon ami, all the Democrats and some Republicans will vote for him. You can bet the rent that he will be confirmed.

    Buchanan had Bill Richardson agreeing with him. Richardson actually said that Hannity should like Hagel and one of the reasons is that Hagel is from Nebraska. I suppose that means that the Cornhusker State is a Bible belt state.

    I would not put it passed McCain after he expresses some doubts will say “I think President Obama should have the right to pick his Sec of Defense so I will reluctantly vote for my good friend Chuck Hagel but I can assure you that we will carefully watch the Pentagon to make sure that our friendship with Israel is maintained”.

    Hey if he can win in New Jersey I say go for it. I want to retake the Senate. I would be under no illusions that he is conservative which is Ok by me because New Jersey is a Democratic state. Another benefit would be that he would have to leave Fox. A Ted Cruz type running in N.J. would never make it.

    They will blame it all on the Joooos. I wish they would emphasize Hagel’s dangerous ideas about the American military.

    Treaty ratifications should be upped to a 3/4 majority, and confirmations should be upped to a 2/3 majority.

    Treaty ratifications should be upped to a 3/4 majority, and confirmations should be upped to a 2/3 majority.

    And return control of the Senate to the States by repealing the Seventeenth Amendment. The Founders put the States in control of selecting Senators as a check to Federal power.

    That was because the D’Rats were filibustering Bush’s judicial appointees. I doubt the GOPee has the backbone to return the favor.

    @ Mike C.:

    Yeah, Hagel is in. He’ll get 54 Democrat votes, and that’s all he needs. He’ll probably draw a couple of Republican votes to make it “bi-partisan”, too. They’ll want to be collegial to their former colleague.
