I have some very vocal liberals in one of my classes; they're fairly strong personalities, though, so I think they'll be able to tolerate the 8x10 of Ronald Reagan I have on the wall over my desk. I thought I'd make a point to them today, though, and I was certainly able to corner them.
"Do you guys think I'm flexible? Do you think I'm open-minded? Do you think you can change my mind? Do you think you can negotiate with me?"
"No!" came back the replies.
"OK. And I'm not even crazy enough to fly airplanes into buildings. If you don't think you can negotiate with me, what makes you think you can negotiate with people who will fly airplanes into buildings?"
Now let's change the subject to France. You know, the cheese-eating surrender monkeys. The ones who secretly dealt with Saddam in order to undermine our efforts before the invasion. The ones who refused to participate in the invasion. The anti-Semitic ones who constantly look down their noses at the US whilst siding against Israel and with the Palestinian Authority and Hezbollah. The ones who haven't lifted a finger against Islamic Terrorists.
Not enough. The Associated Press reports that Al-Qaeda has allied itself with an anti-French terrorist organization!
As Charles says at the end of his piece on the topic:
Poor France. They just can’t win for surrendering.
