There was a huge fight last night down at the Dive Bar. It was about The War.
It seems that Barack "Peace Prize" Obama has decided to attack this little country called Afghanistan. And nearly everyone in the joint was pissed off.
The peacenik liberals were mad that we didn't flat out withdrawal completely the day after inauguration.
And bloodthirsty conservatives were mad. For some reason. Not sure why. I guess they hate Obama whatever he does.
There was one poor bastard who stuck up for the President's new plan; and I think he was only holding out because he had a freaking Obama tattoo on his arm from last summer. And since he was out of work, it might be tough to pay to have it removed. Good Times.
I kept my mouth shut during the fight. I have an opinion, but I also just smart enough to know that I know nothing about foreign policy. Trying to second-guess the guy who knows more about the situation than anybody else would be kind of silly.
However, if this "Afghans surge" is being done simply to gather "security minded" conservatives votes in 2012, I am going to be pissed.
And I swear to God I will vote for Palin. I mean it.
