This Is a Slow News Day

I just said that to see what I could provoke.

I'm actually just re-tooling
(working on my radar, GPS, VHS, and LORAN).

In the meantime, Dear Reader(s),
you are invited to bring stuff up!

I'll start it off. I just got some email from E of StarSpangledHaggis. She sent me this piece of dung from Mark Steyn, who has already won all the mention he merits (from me) in these pages. Just one more example of Gore Dementia Syndrome.

Well, I found out on Hagis that "If you haven't heard, Coulter said that Christians are Jews who have been "perfected." (Thanks for that link, vigilante.)

"Ann Coulter, author of If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans, and if Ann Coulter had any brains, she would not say Jews need to be perfected. I'm offended by that personally."

The Coultergeist strikes again: the intellecutal equivalent of Paris Hilton.

I just read where Hillary said that 'the problem of Iraq has no military solution.' And it occurred to me that she must have been the gazillioneth-and-one politico to have uttered that cliche. And it occurred to me that that many repetitions, iterations, etc., must mean something. Like it must be a code that no one really wants to examine or de-code. And then I started wondering what - decoded - all of these VIP's were really saying when they obviously weren't thinking. And then it came to me.

"No military solution" means "no war". It's really an occupation.

The people who are killing our troops are not our enemy. But we are their enemies. Because all they want is their country back.

There's old Vietnam-era joke that I will recycle here, like changing the names to update it:

A car bomb goes off in the middle of Baghdad, killing dozens of people. After the explosion, there is a lot of shooting and three wounded and unarmed guys jump down into the crater to take cover. One is an American, one is a Sunni and one is a Shiite. It turns out that they all speak English. The American asks the others, "What are you guys fighting for?"
The Shiite says, "I'm fighting for my nation".
The Sunni says, I'm fighting for my Caliphate. What are you fighting for, American?"
The American says, "I'm fight for my country's honor!"
"Ahhh, I see", concludes the Shiite. "Each of us is fighting for what we don't have."

At least that's the closest I can come, framing it to the original.

Wow, Vigilante, that's a profoundly sad and true joke.
