An RPG At A Knife Fight

Often nom de guerred a Rocket Propelled Grenade, RPG is really Russian talk for Ruchnoi (Handheld) Protivotankovye (Anti - Panzer) Granatamyot (Grenade Launcher).

The RPG-7 is a handheld, shoulder-launched anti-panzer weapon capable of firing an unguided rocket containing an explosive warhead.

RPGs are also very effective against lightly armored or unarmed vehicles and against fixed positions - or troops.

In a way, what happened at GOP Fest '08 last eve was the eq of toting such a whacking device to a knife fight.

And using it.

Plus - since McCain picked Sarracuda as his VP grrl, the CBS poll shows Mac has closed Obama's 8 point lead. Magic man's magical lead evaporated faster than 'lightly armoured' vehics in a blizzard of RPG's.

And that was before unleashing Sarracuda!

Nice pic and nice analogy.

I'm signing up to have mooseburgers and be the father of Saracuda's next baby.

But I'll settle for voting her and McCain into the White House in November ;-)

A good analogy. But I'm expecting the atomic bomb tonight from my main man McCain.

Love that GSG!

This poll is really good news, especially since it is a CBS poll. I can't wait for the Zogby and Rasmussen polls to come out.

Nice, not to mention the rocket on the RPG uses a shape charge. Sarahcuda is definitely the shapely charge of this RPG system.

Good one. But I suspect McCain/Palin will be forced to "surge" in order to defeat the Madi, I mean el Lefty Media army, whose fighting a proxy insurgency for Obama/Biden.
