Can somebody please tell me why the hell we are there, again? Like WWI, I think Afghanistan is going to be one of those long, bloody slogs that in hindsight nobody will be able to explain what the hell we were doing there in the first place.

Any news on how successful National Keep Your Child At Home Day was in your area? A school district in Toronto, Ohio had .016 percent (!!!!) of their students avoid the speech. Their parents could not be reached for comment as they were busy stockpiling muskets, hardtack and salted pork in their fortified suburban stockades.

I noticed that Jim Greer, after completing his goal of whipping the mouth-breathers into a frenzy, flatly stated that “It’s a good speech. It encourages kids to stay in school and the importance of education, and I think that’s what a president should do.” Yes, fine, but did the president mention the importance of TYPING IN ALL CAPS?!?!
