Can’t sleep – Watching one of the stupidest movies ever, “Orange County” and reading about some of the dumbest politicians ever

September 27, 2009

I can’t believe that this movie was considered fresh and original when it was released. It has every derivative plot point that you can imagine, including the main character being kicked in the testicles.

Speaking of testicles – I never thought I would say this but thank God for Hillary Clinton. While everyone else in the administration is waffling on whether to send more troops to Afghanistan she is apparently swinging more meat than John Holmes and holding the line with Holbrooke, McChrystal and Mullen. Welcome to my world girl.

How can politicians still be considered credible after being proven wrong time and time again. The same people advising against an increase in troops in Afghanistan are those who advised against the troop surge in Iraq, for the same reason – more troops won’t accomplish anything. In any sane universe they would be ignored.

    Yeah, but we got smarter about the time of the surge, too; bonding with locals in classical COIN techniques, bribing tribal poo-bahs with Little Blue Pills, forex. Hearts and minds works, and that had been studiously ignored by the Neocons while they gave it lip service. Now, we’re fighting smarter, which made the surge work. We need to make sure the same smarts are used in Afganistan as well as Pakistan, because I am undertrilled with the idea of an Iranian Hegemony with a nuke umbrella over western asia, to the point of even supporting Pakistan. IMHO, of course.
