A prediction.

The Corner at National Review Online is buzzing with jokes about the commissioning of the USS Jimmy Carter today on the 19th. (Just scroll up and down from the link)

In my duty as Jonah's Military Guy, I sent this observation:

If I was selected for command of a submarine, I wouldn’t care if it was named the USS Clinton, and tied up to the sub-tender USS Lewinsky for servicing. Commands like that go to very, very few people. If I’ve got to suffer rabbit jokes, so be it.

Prediction – absent mechanical problems – the USS Jimmy Carter will be *The Best* submarine in the Navy, precisely because of the jokes.


The Donovan, yer Military Guy.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. Perhaps the Bubblehead sailors at The Stupid Shall Be Punished and Unconsidered Trifleswill weigh in, so to speak.

Ahhhh, scored the Corner! Good. Like to keep my cred up!

Update: Go check out Speed Of Thought's linkfest on the subject. That's where Eaglespeak will find his "vile calumny" that he tries to smear *us* with!
