08:13 am - Okay, okay: ba-a-a-aa, already! ;)

I told myself I was going to lay off the high-maintenance memes for a while -- but it has been a while, and this one's fairly quick. I got it from davyn, indigoskynet, and allessindra.

Please leave a comment of one word that you feel best describes me. It can only be ONE word -- no more.

Then, copy and paste this into your own journal [if you wish] so that I can leave a one-word description of you.
Current Mood: anticipatory
Current Music: just a bunch of white noise

Apollo 4 on column of fire

(no subject)

The Rude Pundit (rudepundit) writes:
When Bush spoke on Tuesday, he was trying, desperately, to get back in the good graces of people like Rude Bro. Unfortunately, what he declared was that the United States (or the "coalition") has transformed Iraq from a relatively stable, if insane and murderous, dictatorship to a battle-scarred, body-part strewn shitstorm of a terrorist magnet, using American soldiers as bait and Iraqis as pawns: "Some wonder whether Iraq is a central front in the war on terror. Among the terrorists, there is no debate. Hear the words of Osama Bin Laden: 'This Third World War is raging' in Iraq." It's always nice to allow the terror masterminds to control the rhetoric and define the terms of engagement, no? Later, he said, "We fight today because terrorists want to attack our country and kill our citizens, and Iraq is where they are making their stand." Or, you know, it's cheaper to drive to Iraq than to deal with American airport security.

Another way to look at this: Bush is suggesting that, on account of the destruction of the World Trade Center by terrorists, he has decided it's time for World War III.

I wonder how that will play in Peoria.

(Who besides me has the opinion that the Rude Pundit's rudeness is roughly in inverse relation to value of the piece? This one hardly seemed rude at all.)
