Vice President Joe Biden has sparked rumors of presidential aspirations by delivering a campaign-style speech in Iowa, the first voting state in the presidential primary process. Most Democrats are watching former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for hints about her 2016 plans, but Biden has neither confirmed nor denied his intentions to run. Joe Biden sparks presidential campaign rumors at Iowa fund raising appearance A simple musing from this side of the pond, how about the Democrats pushing for Joe Biden for President, and Hillary Clinton for Vice President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton’s proposed ‘joint’ theme tune for the run up to the 2016 Presidency election Yours Aye.
‘And then I was like pew, pew, pew and I got Bin Laden’: Photo of Obama with his foot on the Oval Office’s desk sparks outrage and ridicule & Joe Biden has a senior moment.Joe Biden stroking his chin thinking; ‘Bin Laden~Bin Laden, I’ve heard that name mentioned before, some where’? Hmmmm, ‘buy a shotgun~buy a shotgun, Bin Laden~Bin Laden’? Nope it’s just not coming back to me… No disrespect intended American cousins… Yours Aye.
So the Army hacked into the Navy (or some Admiral’s) email and sent out the below phony note, supposedly from Vice Admiral Michael H. Miller:

In preparation for the humiliating defeat Army will be dealing to us in the near future, I have some guidance to pass down.
First: when we stage for march-on, we need to clean up our act. The internet has us pegged as dirty slobs– this year, we need to bring trash bags and clean up after ourselves. From what I understand, Army is embarrassed to even be associated with us.
Second: clean up the actual march-on. Please at least pretend to be in the military. Dress right dress, don’t talk at attention, etc. Seriously, this one is too easy.
Third: we need to have better accountability of our goats. This is also very embarrassing.
Fourth: when Army sings second, we will be respectful and professional.
Fifth: we need to be better at cyber.
Finally, I award you all with PMI (sleep ins) until Christmas. Maybe even a little longer, depending on how morale is going after Army defeats us on Saturday.
Go Army, Sink Navy!
Nice try, Army. The Navy still won, 13-17. Keenan Reynolds scored a late touchdown to give the Middies the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy and bragging rights to the 113th rivalry game. Next year, Army. . .
Note to all Sailors, please be on the lookout for Ensign Hunter Biden. Yes, the Vice President’s son is going down the tried path of a direct commission:
Vice President Joe Biden will have another military son to worry about as he helps chart America’s course around the world.
Biden’s youngest son, Hunter, is joining the Navy.
The attorney and former lobbyist applied for a commission into the Navy Reserve as a public affairs officer and was selected, the Navy said Friday. Because Hunter Biden is 42, he needed a special waiver to be accepted, but that is not uncommon. He is one of seven candidates recommended for a direct commission for public affairs.
Or is Hunter Biden going to be comissioned as an LT, as in LT Hunter Biden? Could be, those PAO guys are smooth talkers.
What is the most repeated headline regarding the Navy over the past hundred years? If you guessed: Navy has plans for better-tasting chow, you would be right. And our offender today is none other than USA Today (who really should be renamed USA Yesterday):
As executive chef for Vice President Joe Biden, Chief Culinary Specialist Thomas McNulty cooks for some of the world’s most powerful people using some of the same skills the Navy hopes will make food that sailors eat tastier and healthier.
The Navy wants a ship’s galley to have the feel of Mom’s kitchen, making meals from scratch whenever possible.
“The culinary world has blown up, and I think it’s a natural progression that the military and the Navy have seen that we just can’t sit in an archaic era,” said McNulty, a 14-year veteran.
As America’s foodie culture becomes more widespread, sailors — particularly younger ones — have more daring tastes. Sailors are also interested in healthier foods, so the Navy wants its cooks to have the know-how to cut fat, cholesterol and calories without cutting flavor.
“Really, the morale of a ship, I think most folks will tell you, starts at the mess decks,” said Cmdr. Danny King, director of Navy food services.
McNulty trained with Marcus Dunbar, executive chef at the Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle and one of many civilian chefs helping Navy cooks hone their skills. Sailors also have trained with chefs at the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, Calif., as well as at upscale chains such as Hilton and Marriott.
Standing by for incoming culinary delights. I will tell you, though, any grub is good grub.
PS That is the real picture from the USA Today article. The Naval Academy. And the Blue Angels. Both of whom eat lots of chow. Well, the Middies and the pilots eat a lot of chow. The actual Academy and the F-18s do not eat Navy chow. You got to hand it to USA Today. Their picture choice is almost Pulitzer Prize worthy. . .
