Glen Beck was on. "The most important thing in America right now," he told us, "is defense." Defense against who? Who the freak does the world's largest super-power need to defend itself against? Lebanon? The WMDs in Iraq? China's unholy alliance with Wal-Mart? Or maybe Grenada has us in their cross-hairs again? Yeah right.
But in a way, Glen Beck has hit the nail on the head. There IS a terrible danger threatening us and America DOES need to defend itself. But it's very important that we turn our weapons on the right enemy if we are ever to be truly safe.
I know who America needs to defend itself against, Glen. We need to defend ourselves, our families and our country against the thieves, liars, sadists, crooks and scalawags in the White House. That's who.
It is the greatest tribute imaginable to America's DEFENSES that they have withstood six long dark years of constant attacks from George W. Bush. Hey, Glen, if you are truly serious about strengthening America's defenses, let's hear you talk about this!
PS: My greatest fear is that GWB will decide that America is not destabilizing fast enough. "Maybe if I tried that 9-11 trick again...." Why not? It worked the first time.
