The turnip truck must be missing a passenger

Last week I saw Colin Powell speak at a conference. You would think that when a former four star general and Secretary of State speaks, they would have something insightful or memorable to say. The only thing I'll remember from his speech is a lame joke with a punchline that required Powell to grab his crotch in front of 18,000 people.

Apparently, a few days later when asked about Obama's work thus far as president, Powell said, "I never would have believed that we would have budgets that are running into the, you know, multi-trillions of dollars-and we are amassing a huge, huge national debt that if we don't pay for it in our lifetime, our kids and grandkids and great-grandchildren will have to pay for it."

Dude, you not only voted for it, you endorsed it. You got what you wanted.

Maybe I should have expected crotch grabbing before insight from this guy.
