This one could go into the record books as the World's Largest Distinction That Was Somehow Unnoticed By a Drooling Moron:
"By the time night falls on Sept. 11, Osama bin Laden will have been at large for 1,461 days.
"America vanquished world fascism in less time. We obtained Germany's surrender in 1,243 days and Japan's in 1,365. Even the third Punic War, in which Carthage was burned to the ground and emptied of citizens, lasted only around 1,100 days."
Michael Tomasky, in the American Prospect magazine.
Er, this guy is actually comparing the successful prosecution of a war in which the enemy had really big uniformed armies, to the failure to have thus far found ONE STINKING PERSON IN A RUGGED REGION THAT ENCOMPASSES ROUGHLY A BAZILLION SQUARE MILES???????? Oh, and let's not rule out the very real possibility that bin Laden is dead.
Maybe we ought to just burn down half of Afghanistan like Carthage. Is that what Tomasky is advocating? Probably not.
This a-hole is kidding, right?
Oh please tell me he's kidding.
