AntiOccam Society Loses Temper
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she was shocked by the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in Libya — which makes the Society wonder What F’ing Planet Has She Been Living On? Why weren’t these men protected? It’s Libya! Not the Swiss Canton of Yodel! The locals aren’t Presbyterians, ya know!
And this was after her State Department made a Deplorable, Cowardly, and Disgusting apologize to concerned Egyptian citizens on their way to attacking the American Embassy in Cairo.
The Islamic Middle East is the Crack House of the World, okay? And talking to these dangerous individuals — who would just as soon kill each other – in the style of a first-year private school kindergarten teacher is…um, unproductive.
Meanwhile Pres. Obama, refusing to cancel a campaign yada yada in Las Vegas, said, “Make no mistake, justice will be done.” Of course, he puts that clause in front of many of his sentences, as in: “Make no mistake, the economy is far from perfect.”
But the President is definitely going to have to kill some people for Libya. He is, after all, the Man who Shot Liberty Laden. And at great personal risk, too, as Bill Clinton pointed out: “What if all those Seals had been killed? That would have been terrible for him(Obama.)” Him? This gives us a tiny peek at how much great men of history think about the guys who actually do the shooting.
(Late Coda: By this afternoon, Romney had pounced on the girlie-man stuff, and, sensing a drop in the polls, H. Clinton and B. Obama quickly switched to “tough and unwavering.” For Dems, this is the equivalent of a fat guy holding in his stomach for a picture.)
