Reasons number 732 and 733 why The Decider is An Ass

Reason 732: Jesus, Your Majesty, what's next, appointing the head of the Flat Earth Society as National Science Advisor? Appointing someone who wants to blow up the United Nations as our ambassador to the Uni...oh wait, you already did that. Or just appointing someone who doesn't believe that family planning should encompass all available options ("birth control is demeaning to women") as head of the Office of Population Affairs at DHHS? This is like appointing Borat Sagdiyev our ambassador to Kazakhstan.

Reason 733: The lesson Monkey Boy believes that the Vietnam War has for him and Iraq? "We tend to want there to be instant success in the world, and the task in Iraq is going to take a while. We'll succeed unless we quit." In other words: "We would have beat the Cong if we had stayed." (Juan Cole says it better than I do. And check out the comments on the U.S. colonization of the Phillipines.)


  • Reason #733 is especially egregious because he said it *in Vietnam*. *To* the Vietnamese. Imagine if a Japanese prime minister in the 1970s had come to the United States and made the same announcement about World War II. Imagine how that would have gone over.
