Howie Carr’s Take:

November 7, 2012

When I was a kid, I used to watch “McHale’s Navy” on TV. Remember Tim Conway — Ensign Parker? He had a saying that I’ve never forgotten.
“Cheaters never prosper.”
Even at the age of 10 or 11, I didn’t buy it. There was altogether too much evidence to the contrary, starting with the presidnet, LBJ. And since then, the evidence that cheaters do prosper has only continued to pile up… and up… and up.
Cheaters never prosper? Tell it to Bill Clinton. And just this year, to the fake Indian, Granny Warren. She never prospered until she started cheating.
But what happened yesterday was so much more than Elizabeth Warren. Barack Obama didn’t deserve to be reelected, and please, don’t tell me to take solace in the fact that he only got 50 percent of the vote, or that 13 million fewer people voted yesterday than in 2008.
All his life, Mitt Romney has tried to do the right thing, he’s given millions to charity, he’s been the bishop of his church, he’s tithed, he worked for nothing as governor of Massachusetts. He’s led an exemplary life, words I don’t use very often.

Lessons From Shiloh… “Lick’em Tomorrow, Though”

Sent to me…

 November 7, 2012

 Here’s what I’ve been thinking about since the last state was called:

Halfway through the Battle of Shiloh, when an exhausted William Tecumseh Sherman met up with Ulysses Grant in a rain-soaked camp, after a brutal and bloody day of fighting, he found the Union commander sitting calmly and smoking a soggy cigar.  It had been a terrible day: the Union forces were caught unprepared and off-guard, and the Confederate sneak attack had claimed many casualties and had even led to the astonishing event of a Union general taken prisoner.

Sherman approached Grant as he smoked his wet cigar.  They were silent for a moment.  Sherman stood there as Grant smoked thoughtfully and stared out at the rain.

“Well, Grant,” Sherman finally said, “We’ve had the devil’s own day, haven’t we?”

Grant nodded.  Puffed at his cigar.

“Yes,” he said.”  And then he added:  “Lick ’em tomorrow, though.”

The next day, the Union won a decisive victory.

Lick ’em tomorrow, though
