Can't argue with that logic

Just more wisdom from Fearless Leader. Via a comment at Kakistocrats, this observation was apparently made:

Q Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism. If a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former Secretary of State feels this way, don't you think that Americans and the rest of the world are beginning to wonder whether you're following a flawed strategy?

THE PRESIDENT: If there's any comparison between the compassion and decency of the American people and the terrorist tactics of extremists, it's flawed logic. I simply can't accept that. It's unacceptable to think that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective, Terry.

Well, that explains certain ummmm conversations I've had recently, I expect. here i was thinking "nail polish remover fumes? large blunt objects making forceful impact with tender unprotected bits? alien transmission via fillings?"

But no; duh; I simply haven't been watching the "news" for quite a while. Quacking heads and all; from whence this comes; from whence this comes and comes and comes.

and NOW i remember why the intranet feminist flamewars seem so very compelling;

because it helps me forget that all this other shit is going on, God help us all.

For real. When I hear Chimpy say shit like that, it makes me want to shout down his throat "TU QUOQUE MUCH, JERKFACE?!" Which I can't do, so Darleen, thou art the surrogate for my anger.

I also get mad at Darleen for other reasons...the stupid moron.

yeah, I'm afraid so. we're all pinatas -and- blindfolded swingers on this bus.

but in that instance, yah, i did have very specific reasons to be annoyed with her in particular as well.

shrug. like it matters in the long run, really.

some people are just gonna be blah blah blah GINGER no matter what you say to 'em.

one develops different ways of dealing with such people than one does with folks who reveal even the slightest glimmer of there's someone at home in there, as well as first of all discerning whom is which.

or, well, one does one's best.
