For the love of...

But all of that is rendered moderate, restrained, sober and even sane by a new article she wrote for the British magazine, The Spectator (headline: I Found Saddam's WMD Bunkers), which claims that: (a) WMDs really were found in Iraq after the invasion, (b) they were located in vast underground bunkers (c) which contained "nuclear, chemical and biological materials", but (d) the U.S., through negligence, failed to secure those sites and, as a result, (e) the WMDs were stolen by The Terrorists and/or Syrian agents, who now have them and are actively plotting (along with China, Russia and North Korea) to use them against the West, but --

(f) because the Bush administration is so embarrassed by their failure to prevent the theft of all these dastardly weapons, and because Democrats are embarrassed by this discovery because it proves that Saddam really did have WMDs all along, they have all jointly created a vast conspiracy where they conceal the discovery of WMDs in order to cover up for their negligence.

Let's assume all that is true. How the hell does anybody who believes this not demand Bush et al to be tried for treason instantly? How does this support the case for staying in Iraq? But as the piece details, the people who think it is true don't have this reaction. I can only shake my head.

Religious Stupidity

It is crap like this that makes me want to disavow organized religion entirely. I think I am pretty solidly Cathnostic. I think, like most reasonably people even atheists, God wouldn't be such a bad thing to exist. Whether he does or not is another thing. But I mean really. People like Bill Donahue make me ashamed to admit I grew up catholic. I mean for the love of all that is holy does he think that Jesus was crucified in a three piece suit. Fucking Stupidity.

Too much, too far. But I guess that applies to lots of "old" ideas.
