Bush in Vietnam

Well, he finally got there.

He says the lesson of Vietnam is that we should not quit in Iraq. I say the lesson of Vietnam - the lesson I took away when I left there three decades ago - was that if you're not connected like George Bush was back then, the government can - and will - fuck with you whenever and however it wants.

Easy for him to send kids back to his quagmire three and four times. His life isn't on hold. It wasn't on hold back then.He was not inconvenienced then. He is not inconvenienceed now.

In two years, he will amble off into the sunset, leaving his mess to someone else. What a sadd, shallow, empty little man.
