Losing it

It has been five years since the US invaded Afghanistan to oust the snarky Taliban and set up a democratic government.

Today, the Taliban are as strong as ever, and the Afghan people are tired of Hamid Karzai.

Iran has been helping.

Meanwhile back in Iraq, the Sunni-Shiite clashes are going strong, and Americans keep getting dispatched by roadside bombs.

Iran has been helping.

Over in Lebanon, Hezbollah went off the reservation by doing some kidnapping, but they've basically been Iran's bitch.

And Iran doesn't even have The Bomb yet.

Their wacky leader has defied our wacky leader at every turn, and still took the time to write a nice letter.

But it's election season again, and bin Laden has popped up Whack-A-Mole-style, ready to lend a hand with Bush's re-election (*shudder*) or whatever. It's almost like their families were in business together or something....

What color is our Traffic Light of Doom these days, anyway? I guess it's never green, but I imagine the scarier colors will be deployed in time to scare the electorate.

Sorry, I digress. I'm losing focus.

Bush stole the Presidency so he could...um...what? Make us safer, that's it. No attacks on American soil since 9/11. What a good job he must be doing.

Lisa: "It doesn't work; it's just a stupid rock!"
Homer: "Uh-huh."
Lisa: "But I don't see any tigers around, do you?"
Homer: "Lisa, I want to buy your rock!"
