We Delawareans are sadly familiar with the chickenshit college republican Ryan Silberstein insane war mongery. Now his half-assed neocon-ery has been given a boost up to the bloggy big leagues with this DelawareDem Kos Diary
The money quote: If Bush went on TV tonight and said that we were going to take over Venezuela, Mexico, and Iran, purely for their oil, and promised lower gas prices, he would probably begin tomorrow morning with approval ratings in the high 70s.
Now we all know that this was so much kidding on Ryan's part - a mere "thought experiment" (while I agree that Ryan could benefit from experimenting with the concept of thinking), I have a problem with the "thought experiment" ruse.
The thing is, these neocon "thought experiments" have a bad habit of turning into "trial balloons". These "trial balloons" have a bad habit of turning into actual bombs raining down on people Bush decides are "evil doers".
And one more thing. When Bush pulls the trigger and we go into Iran don't look for Silberstien and the other war mongering Yellow elephant college republicans down at the recruiting office.
