I Wonder If It Was Anything Like “Boat Trip”?

Here’s a great article┬áby a British reporter who endured a NeoCon vacation cruise. My favorite quote:

I ask – Mr Starr, do you feel ashamed that, as Osama bin Laden plotted to murder American citizens, you brought the American government to a stand-still over a few consensual blow jobs?

The answer is (not surprisingly) not as good as the question, but the article is well worth your time.

How To Refute “Cut & Run”

Warning: I voted for Kerry. I think Bush is bad. Duh.

Here’s my new fave way to answer accusations of “cut & run”: Stop stalking Iraq… you can’t make him love you.

Think about it… the “stay the course” crowd is trying to change Iraq, just like that girlfriend back in college tried to change you. You know, that girlfriend. The one that wouldn’t stop calling? The one who showed up at 3am and woke up all your housemates? The one who said, “I’ll make you love me!”

It didn’t work for her, and it won’t work for us. Iraq likes us, but only as a friend. We’re stalking Iraq, and it’s just not gonna work out.
