The Celebration of Ignorance and Bullies

Even as they struggle to push through legislation to curb bullies in the schoolyard (yes, that'll help kids behave better), and fight to make people {think like us} kinder and gentler and more, um, "compassionate," as well as "protecting the Homeland," and goodness, keep the right of marriage away from a percentage of the community because we're skeered of 'em, whatdoyaknow, terrorists are allowed to buy guns (including assault rifles) because we don't want to infringe on the rights of innocent gun owners, and we're gonna appoint a guy as envoy to the United Nations who believes "Treaties are 'law' only for U.S. domestic purposes. In their international operations, treaties are simply 'political' obligations" and "If I were redoing the Security Council today, I'd have one permanent member because that's the real reflection of the distribution of power in the world. . . The United States" and this gem, "Support for the International Criminal Court concept is based largely on emotional appeals to an abstract ideal of an international judicial system unsupported by any meaningful evidence and running contrary to sound principles of international crisis resolution."


The United States is Nelson Muntz. We point at the rest of the world and go, "Ha ha!"
