Brad and Angelina's Wild Monkey Sex

July 12, 2005

Christopher Gelpi, a political scientist at Duke University, and studier of public opinion in times of war, has this to say about the London bombings:

“I think the attacks may help slow the ebbing of [public] support over Iraq, because the bombings make [Bush’s] point about linking Iraq and terrorism.”

Uhhh, what?!

OFL likes! And he’s on it like a mating rabbit:

In his weekly radio address Saturday, the president said the bombings were part of a single terrorist offensive that included the Sept. 11 attacks on New York and the Pentagon as well as this year’s attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq.

The stuff I am reading calls it different: that London was the work of “an evolving Al Qaeda” in which ‘Al Qaeda’ is becoming a brand name for terrorism used by separate and diverse groups.

“We are now waging a global war on terror, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the plains of Iraq,” Bush said.

Hey, that sounds patriotic!

For purple [Afghan] mountain majesties
Above thy fruited plain [of Iraq]
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee..

And so reflective of our imperial nature!

“We will stay on the offense, fighting the terrorists abroad so we do not have to face them at home.”

Thank goodness. Now I feel all safe and shit. Too bad for you, rest-of-the-world suckas.

After Flagging Support, a Second Wind for Bush
