QOTD

From the March 8th National Review (subscription only):
Recall the thinking of Barack Obama and Joe Biden about the Iraq War. Obama opposed President Bush's surge in Iraq, saying it would make things worse. He wanted to declare the war lost and come home. Biden proposed essentially splitting the country into three: a Sunni land, a Shiite land, and a Kurdish land. John McCain remarked that you would have to draw lines through a lot of Baghdad bedrooms, because Iraqis intermarry. In any event, the Bush administration had the war pretty much won by the time of the Obama inauguration. And, the other night, Biden went on television and said, "I am very optimistic about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration." Chutzpah is a popular Yiddish word. Schmuck is another.

Since Biden isn't Jewish, I'll stick to English: "Asshole!"

Politicians don't deserve such pussyfooting. Goniffs like them should be run out of town on a rail, after they've been tarred and feathered. Subtlety is wasted.
