"Please let me catch her, please let me catch her, that’s all I could say."

"Let me catch the little baby, that’s all."

IN THE COMMENTS: I'm just waiting for the riffs that begin "You caught a little 7-year-old girl that fell from a 3d-story window? Good for you. But I want to be clear..."

Good on him, but I'm waiting for the Chip Ahoy vid of one of the old Bugs Bunny cartoons with the ballplayer running out yelling, "I got it, I got it, I got it!".

Ron said...

Yow! I just saw the same thing over at Ace! Althouse of Spades....

Oso Negro said...

Well, who built the sidewalk he caught her on? Hmmmm? I thought so.

"You caught a little 7-year-old girl that fell from a 3d-story window? Good for you. But I want to be clear..."

.... the government paid for a concrete sidewalk so you could have firm footing while trying to save her.... you didn't do it on your own.

Also, PE teachers and stuff....

If she hadn't fallen, you would have had no one to catch.

No human can cause his own success. But he and others can and do cause the success of others. The impeccable logic of The Smartest President Ever.

After he caught her did he run for daylight? I mean that's what they do in all the old Knute Rockne movies.

EMD said...

Good, but no Buckner.

AprilApple said...

...and even though you paid for that sidewalk with your taxes, the government still owns you.

7 year old special needs girl living essentially unsupervised in the Projects?

Lamb, meet wolf.

EMD said...

Good for Mr. St. Bernard.

Rabel said...

Looked to me like she jumped.

Doesn't change the good outcome, but I don't see a slip.

Fox crawl said 3 feet while the video feed showed three stories.

So I'm over here going, so you caught a baby from three feet big deal. You didn't do that by yourself you know. Somebody built those floors and that brick wall and somebody else had that baby for you to catch, someone been raising that baby this whole time while you been standing around waiting for something to catch.

Obama is going to hate that video of him making that gaffe before this is over.

It's every bit as revealing as his moment with Joe the Plumber, only now the voters know better.

Big Mike said...

@Professor, remember that post the other day about "manly men"?

A manly man positions to catch the child and doesn't think twice about it. My take on liberals is that they think they've done all they need to do when they've dialed 911 -- isn't that what the government is for.

And the really far left content themselves with posting comments about how evil the United States must be that a 7 year old girl has to dance on top of an air conditioner three stories up in the air.

Big Mike said...

Isn't that what the government is for question mark

Sorry

traditionalguy said...

That made me tear up. he did what real men do all of the time, and a cell phone happened to catch it. He was praying to his God and got the answer he was asking for.

Coketown said...

Awesome catch, but the showman in me would have spiked it.

Ann Althouse said...

I really enjoyed the video. The guy is a sweetheart. Very charming modesty. A real man.

elkh1 said...

Awesome catch? How so? Has he made a "gutsy call"? Has he killed bin Ladden?

How many Lizzy Warren's Cherokee ancestors had died before apt. buildings could be built so a little girl could fall into that man's arm?

Lyle said...

Thank Jesus for this man at that moment.

mr said...

I've never heard of a man with so apt a last name.

Mark said...

"A hero is a sandwich." Good guy.

bagoh20 said...

That's got to feel great, and the guy has beautiful teeth.

David said...

Somewhere Ralph Cramden is smiling.

Lem said...

No one could have caught that little girl like he did.

St Bernard was old school.

Today's Wide receivers are all about planning the end zone dance before actually, you know, catching the ball and tucking it in...

Shanna said...

I saw that this morning. Pretty amazing, although for some reason, when I saw the description I thought he was catching her from another window which would have been much more dramatic! But this makes more sense. Somebody is going to have to watch that kid better, though.

Paul said...

Well gents,

Over 51 percent of the people voted for this Putz we have for a president.

So when he says, "I got Bin Laden", well he didn't.

The voters did.


Now he can stick that in his pipe and smoke it.

leslyn said...

Did anyone ask this guy his politics? That's SO important.

You're delusional. Call out the guys in the white coats.

A new internet meme is starting to take shape.

Police do not believe McCree’s parents did anything criminal.


Because the first thing to assume is that the parents ARE criminal, right?

This is a good guy, great story.
