I don’t wanna bust too political here, but I can’t resist sharing this:
This is a dark chapter in our history. Whatever else happens, our country’s international standing has been frittered away by people who don’t have the foggiest understanding of how the hell the world works. America has been conducting an experiment for the past six years, trying to validate the proposition that it really doesn’t make any difference who you elect president. Now we know the result of that experiment [laughs]. If a guy is stupid, it makes a big difference.
Deranged anti-Bush ranting never hurts more than when it comes from a (formerly) Republican four-star general. Among the other cheerful messages of the panel of experts Rolling Stone assembled: the U.S. has lost in Iraq (duh), and a variety of regional wars and genocides are on the way. The threat to Europe caused by the fallout from the lost Iraq war is mentioned twice. By a panel of Americans. Anybody who can plausibly sketch a more hopeful outcome is hereby invited to do so in comments.
Have I mentioned so far that I have never voted for George W. Bush, and have consistently voted for (and sometimes volunteered for and donated to) his opponents in all state and national elections since 1994? Here in Europe, I have a feeling I’ll be mentioning that even more in the years ahead.
I may even get it tattooed on my forehead.
