First Draft Of History
I'm awake doing a takehome and (of course) watching Fox News Channel in the background; I just heard something that needs to be committed to memory; Col. David Hunt, FNC's resident toughness expert, is pissed that GWB caved in on John McCain's torture ban. Hunt's take:
They shouldn't be getting involved in this, let Congress handle steroids.Yeah, that sounds about right. Odds that Tom Clancy is right now working* on a novel in which nuclear armageddon would have been averted had we not hamstrung our, sigh, boys out there: 1.5:1
*I.e., paying other people to write something under his name. No one cares enough to collate the damn thing so that all the separately authored sections could make some sense together.
UPDATE: Some cunt from a "secure driver's license" group in North Carolina just said, "Arab Americans should in fact be grateful that we...[her brain figures out what her mouth is saying]...would never mistreat a group of our citizens." Yes, they should be grateful that no one's launched a pogrom. And if they had any decency they'd show their gratitude by celebrating Christmas.
All of this in a day's work for Neil Cavuto.
