“Just lie back and think of (bombing) England”

Via the Onion “Our Dumb Century”

Yesterday it was noted that Iran’s government was open to negotiations and compromises in its nuclear program vis-a-vis the United States — this, of course, is potentially bad news to America’s only “serious” people — aspiring war criminals.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday he’s working on legislation that would give the president the green light to attack Iran if negotiations over the country’s alleged nuclear weapons program stall.

Graham, one of the GOP’s most prominent hawks, told reporters on Tuesday that he’s worried the administration’s failure to get congressional approval for a strike against Syria has emboldened Iran.

I admit I haven’t reviewed my Hugo Grotius’ rules of “just wars” lately, but I’m pretty sure being accused of “feelin’ good” is not in there.  But kudos to Lindsey, he’s demanding his happy ending — even if it is just for him. He’s just that much of a “Statesmen” — or so Chuck Todd will allow.

Over Easy



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 .
