    A disgusting and embarrassing performance.

    He brought 3 aircraft carriers and spoke of one submarine, some pretty serious sabre rattling. We have to hope that Lil Kim is more mature than our guy, a good chance.

    I saw that part of the speech live. Turned it off and spent the rest of the night wondering what an ancient modern wonder is.
