Another gob of nutritious booger-meat c/o Sadly, No! --- which now qualifies me as a nihilist, according to someone or other who may or may not know what "nihilist" means:
"Why, would that be the same Jeffrey Goldberg who told us all the other day that we should all be afraid, very afraid, because al-Qaeda is just one nuclear weapon away from having a nuclear weapon, and that would be the ONLY thing we should elect a President on?"
Just how Strangelovian must your brain be before you can blithely overlook the fact that the same GOP pulling Yanks’ chains with the boogyman of “Al Qaida + NEW-CLEAR WEAPONZ = DOOOOOOM” is the one that couldn’t be bothered to decapitate it in Tora Bora … with grunts directly ordered to remain inert by Rumsfeld while boxing in their target on 3 of 4 sides, no less?
Then weaponize THAT brain-fart, by frenetically slopping a bullshit topping on their bullshit-burger made of “Dems Will Have Your Kids Beheading Each Other & Reading the Koran 24/7″ … & dig right in?
I strongly suspect the evil force of Bad Pharmaceuticals here at work.
21st-Century Yankeestan may need a Mandatory Elected-Member Detox Program even worse than it needs radical electoral reform. Indeed, the lack of the former may inherently render the latter futile.
