Smitty Loves His Kindle

Posted on | November 21, 2011 | 5 Comments

While he was in Afghanistan, our beloved Admiral developed a serious addiction to his Kindle, downloading e-books to read when he wasn’t fighting the Taliban fleet. I don’t know if he’s tried the new Kindle Fire, but you can buy one for just $199 this week through our Amazon Associates link and it kicks me a little commission to help pay the bills.

    Here’s your joke:::
    Military pilot who had sex with an 11 year old boy when he was 17!!!
    A JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL WHO HAD SEX WITH AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENT!!!  He needs to be on a sexual preditor list.
    How long did he masterbate and think about having sex with boys?  In boot camp?  Into his flight training?  20, 25 YEARS OLD???  OLDER???
    “Creepy rotten grape attached to an otherwise normal bunch.”  Joke’s on you.

    I’m thinking about a Kindle, but I had some other purchases to make first.  Through Amazon, via your link, a place that is better than the current version of eBay.

    For bloggers who would like to use excerpts from electronic books, you can push a quote off of a Kindle to Twitter, then follow your link to where Amazon hosts the quotes.
    I did this the “Throw Them All Out” to get the Jim Moran dirt.
    Beats typing.

    I got a Kindle as a Christmas gift last year, and enthusiastically endorse this product and service. Especially if you buy it in the right place, IYKWIMAITYD.
