Ports - What the Hell?

from - smijer

This Fox News story about the port deal that seems to have upset the Congressional applecart is interesting in at least one way: It repeatedly references the United Arab Emirates, without employing the obligatory news media modifier: "tiny".

But what the hell? Really?

  • Are Democrats... a largely liberal group... really rallying around the Clinton/Schumer effort to scare us with A-rabs? What the hell?
  • Are Republicans really joining forces with Democrats, and standing up to GWB? What the hell?
  • Is GWB really willing to fight this battle against the sure-thing A-rab card, despite its utter insignificance... just because the opposition is being stupid? What the hell?
  • Did Senator John McCain keep a straight face while saying, "The president's leadership has earned our trust in the War on Terror, and surely his administration deserves the presumption that they would not sell our security short"? What the hell?

Yes, JP, It is indeed a big old goofy world.
