Beyond Banality

The whole point of the Libya military incursion, helping the rebels, long ago ceased to be particularly relevant it would seem.

That was the point, wasn’t it? I cannot remember whether I’m suppose to actually remember.

Yes, Gaddafi is a terrible person, murderous asshole and a flamboyant dresser. His added bellicosity just makes the farce greater than ever [second only to the tragedy].

But one does start to wonder if we’re also batting two out of three?

Nato warplanes repeatedly pounded targets in and around [Gaddafi’s] Bab al-Aziziya compound in Tripoli. Reporters counted at least 27 air strikes by Tuesday afternoon.

Some of the bombs hit a military barracks near the compound, officials said. Others hit the compound itself, Libyan television reported.

The New York Times said what appeared to be bunker-busting bombs had destroyed six or seven buildings, including a reception house and VIP guesthouse where South African President Jacob Zuma was received last week.

Officials told the newspaper that 10 to 15 people had died in the attack, but the figure could not be verified.

But we don’t target specific individuals…as long as it involves bunker busters.

Because then it’s totally moral.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
