about

I feel like everybody debating politics on the Internet watched the same Saturday Night Live political debate sketch, the one where Dan Akroyd starts his rebuttal with "Jane, you ignorant slut." Only they thought it was real and used it as a template.

That said, Lileks, you pathetic chickenhawk piece of shit, don't ever adopt that high-handed tone again. We're destroying Iraq in order to save it, and you're pissed that Salam isn't showing the proper gratitude?

I'm sure he's grateful that American troops are risking their lives to ensure Iraqi security, but the absurd gap between Bush's rhetoric and the way the invasion and occupation have actually been executed calls for bucketloads of snark.
