G. Gordon Liddy. And I'm not kidding.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke gets my nomination.

Tom Smith said...

Need to quit taking good people from congress. Rudy, Newt, David Clarke are fair choices. When I get done cutting the grass I can do it.

Tom Smith said...

and I like Liddy but the dude is not well from what I hear............loved his radio show

I'd vote for Gowdy, but we need his voice and energy in Congress where he can kick a*s and take names when so many others would rather go along to get along (McCain.)

I don't care who gets the job, as long as they are instrumental in bringing a few of the Obama Administration officials to trial for crimes. If it's Hillary Clinton they bring to trial, they should give them a medal.

Merrick Garland, just to hear liberal heads explode.

Mike Rogers since we need to keep Gowdy in congress.

G. Gordon Liddy is 86!- going on 110. And he has a criminal record spending 8 years in prison, part of which was at the Columbia Asylum and Jail in D.C., (from whence came a cockroach story).

But at 82, Liddy said he was getting "long in the tooth" and he's eager spend time with his 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild. "It's been a good ride," said Liddy, "but I"m finished."

So Liddy is 86. I'll bet he's still no pushover. My friend (and Skoonj's) Barry Farber is 87, and still writes his weekly WND column and still does his nightly radio show on crn.talk.com, and when you shake hands with him you can still feel the wiry strength of the collegiate wrestler he once was, and I wrote a piece for AT proposing him for Sec'y of State (http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/11/how_about_an_octogenarian_for_secstate.html).

Remember that Liddy was an artillery officer in Korea and an FBI agent, and he managed to survive over 4 years in prison, including the hellhole of the DC Asylum and Jail (where he acquired his famous "fighting ring"); he also parachuted with the IDF at age 72. I think Liddy can still exemplify that great line from Clint Eastwood's "Gran Torino", "'Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while you shouldn't have fucked with?"

Yup, Liddy is one of my heroes. And besides having met him in person, I also appeared on his radio show and told the story of how I'd suffered a hydrocele, in which one of my testes swelled up to about the size of a Toyota. Once I found out it wasn't cancer, I said to the doc, "Can you make the other one do that? I could have a pair of nuts like G. Gordon Liddy!"

I also asked Liddy if he knew where I could get some "ALP combat sandals", which I used to wear and still own a couple pair of, but which aren't made anymore. Since a couple of Liddy's kids competed in the Iron Man Triathlon, I thought they might know where the sandals could be obtained. He said, "Stu, if they don't make them anymore, maybe that tells you something." I said, "Gordon, they don't make Bugattis anymore, either!"

That would be awesome

Skoonj said...

Appoint Tomi Lahren. A director you can look at.

Linda Fox said...

I could get behind Gowdy.

Skoonj sent me Michael Walsh's NY Post article, "Comey's Firing is a Gift to the FBI". Walsh posits that what we need at the FBI's helm is not "another politician, jurist or prosecutor"; what we need is "a cop -- the best one we have".

The best cops often don't make headlines or enjoy widespread name recognition. Among those that do, that of course would tend to lead back to Sheriff David Clarke; but if he's not available, I wonder what Bo Dietl is doing?
