Grasping at Straws

May 27th, 2003 · No Comments

Insty links a recent piece from Scrappleface, which practically oozes desperation. The tiresome pseudo-apology isn’t particularly funny, but the underlying argument you reach if you peel it away is laugh out loud hilarious. The message, in short, is that because terror can now be carried out with the tools any stockboy has access to at K-Mart, you must be some kind of twit unless you favor pre-emptive strikes on K-Mart. Or maybe it’s only K-Marts in countries where they give money to terrorists who attack countries other than the United States. Or something. The new self-defense is so tricky… Anyway, all you bad Americans who’re wondering exactly why we went to war when, you know, all the avowed reasons for going to war have been shown hollow… well, don’t you feel silly? After all, he gassed his own people.
