King of the wild Blackberry

Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo. thinks escalation is a John Wayne movie or something. Well, a John Wayne movie where they have high technology:
AKIN: Could you picture Davy Crockett at the Alamo looking at his Blackberry getting a message from Congress? “Davy Crockett, we support you. The only thing is we are not going to send any troops.” I’m sure that would really be impressive to Davy Crockett.
In a breathtaking discovery, NPI has uncovered Crockett's actual text messages from the Battle of the Alamo:
F2F w/SA OMG SND more troops AEAP PLS SSINF IG2R Zzzzzzz

Maybe the Alamo was a bad choice, history-wise, for the GOP, since um, Crockett and all the other defenders most likely died. It burns.
