I swear, I try to stop just blogging about news items, I try to stop blogging about the stuff that you've probably read better posts about elsewhere, but as dogs are my witness, some stories come along and no matter how hard you try to ignore them they grab you and look at you and make faces and make ridiculous noises and jump up and down and point and laugh and then cry and then look at you again and scream at the top of their lungs, republicans are the most painfully ridiculous creatures ever to be excreted from the asses of the thundering dinosaurs! Why? Well, for one thing, Bill Frist, repuke hotshot and another beacon of modern conservatism, says we sould put the Taliban back in power!
That's right, the same Taliban that we spent eighty-some-odd-billion or so dollars to over throw, along with countless gallons of soldiers' blood and pounds of flesh, the same Taliban that supposedly had more to do with 9/11 than Iraq did, the same Taliban who's downfall was supposedly a crucial part of republicans' "spreading democracy"... that's who Frist, presidential hopeful and republican extraordinaire, says should be put back into power. "We can't beat them," says the proud member of the party of optimism, chosen by God to spread freedom throughout the third world. Or is he spreading something else?
Those darn flip-floppin' republicans... I guess he was for the invation and overthrow of sovereign nations before he was against it.
UPDATE: Oh, I almost forgot to mention - remember the republican talking point that Bush & Co keep repeating, emphatically, to justify their foreign policy - "We must honor the solders' sacrifice by completing the mission" - ? Right. What is it they accuse us on the left of... "cut and run"? Right.
