...Learn TDD with Codemanship

Pinko Commie Liberals

I thought this email from Chris Drotar - in response to an old blog post about Professor Bush's excellent plan to end the conflict in Iraq with more, er, conflict - might amuse you as much as it tickled me:

Dear Mr. Gorman

I read your puzzling opinion that '99.9%' of the country knows that the military option is not working.

Our enemy knows that eons of history record that the less resolve one has the more vulnerable he becomes.

Seeing that the liberals in this country were determined to oppose our efforts to succeed in this conflict, the enemy knew that we were a 'house divided' and that we therefore would not use our military effectively. Their logical course of action was to fight us with renewed vigor, ultimately resulting in more not less death.

Yet, the sad that prescription you offer for dealing with the horror of 3 decades of acquiescence in the face of this enemy is yet another retreat.

It has been said that 'All great civilizations have their ascendancy in hob-nailed boots, and descend into oblivion wearing silken slippers.' How very sad to see it happening in my lifetime to the greatest civilization yet known.

The best of luck in your endeavors.

Chris.


Off the top of my head I'm struggling to think of a great civilisation that was brought down by liberalism. Can you think of one?

And as for "the greatest civilisation yet known"... Let's leave Belgium out of this, shall we?
