Jessica Simpson. Daisy Dukes. Big Ass Gun.

As some of you might already know, Jessica Simpson entertained troops aboard the USS Harry S. Truman in the Arabian Sea over the weekend, and reader Allison just brought this photo to my attention that genuinely reminded me how America kicks ass sometimes. Namely by letting a large-breasted woman in short shorts operate heavy weaponry to raise troop morale. Suck it, evildoers.

Dedicated to our brave men and women in uniform. (Miss you, bro.)
