Captain Sully -- The Heroics Never Stop

3/5/2010 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jesus may have been able to walk on water but he couldn't land a jumbo jet on it. Sully is the man.

not to diminish what he did when he landed that plane, but he's not the greatest pilot ever for doing so. birdstrikes are quite common in aviation. sully only did what he was trained to do--it wasn't a miracle. planes are landed after birdstrikes more often than not, you just don't hear about them every day.

How I love this man! In an era when there are simply NO HEROES...except for, in my opinion, law enforcement officers...Capt. Sullenberger has the luster of a super-nova! If I had my druthers, it would be Sully, who occupies the White House...and, who mans the desk of the Oval Office! When I went to Europe, last January, I hoped that every pilot that I had, round-trip, would be as skilled, and professional, as Capt. Sullenberger!After reading the tripe that passes for "journalism", these days, Capt. Sullenberger is one of the few, who has restored my faith in "people", and in this country, in general. He is an Angel, and, for me, it is a privilege to live, contemporaneously, with him...

Had Sully been a pilot of a hijacked plane on 9/11 he would not of only landed his plane safely but the other four as well. Sully is to fighting as Chuck Norris is to kicking tail.

Certainly not to demean his heroism but it is time for him to go into retirement (out of the press) now that he is likely super rich from the fame. On an every day basis, pilots and flight attendants perform heroic acts and, yet, we don't hear about them.

If he weren't a conservative Republican, his fame would not have lasted this long.

The geese are not "Canadian." But, they are Canada Geese.

You can tell that the whole time Sully's listening to this idiot babble, he's thinking (like everyone else) .... "what an annoying moron. I wish he'd go away."

MOVING ON!! I'm sick of hearing about this old hag!! Okay he saved a whole plane full off passengers WOO HOO THE END. There is probably more heroic acts that happened yesterday but the media isn't publishing that are they?!?! There is more important stories to discuss than something that happened LAST YEAR!!!!
