Perils of Parallelism, Part II

So Dubya actually wants us to draw parallels between Vietnam and Iraq now?


Here's one: refusing to concede the obvious didn't do Texan Lyndon Johnson much good. He handed the quagmire off to his successor, but Johnson was forever tarred with his tragic mistake.

Yeah but forever wasn't too long for LBJ. He died 4 years after leaving office. Can we hope for some parallelism from Texas too?

There's a line that once crossed cannot be recrossed. LBJ did it, Nixon did it, and oh boy has the current fool done it! After that, comparisons, desires for incremental changes and other normal mental activities regarding the offender lose all meaning for the external observer, us. There is no amount of pain or dislocation that could possibly be inflicted on GWB which would even proportionately relate to his crimes.
That is the line. He crossed it, and the sooner he is dead the better.

Mister Blue Meme sticks the landing!

Perfect analogy. I guess that's why I patiently await your next words.

When the going gets tough for Dubya, Dubya will get going to Paraguay. That's what out-of-country compounds are for!

Maybe thats why Rove left early...get that Paraguay Compound up and ready to be fit for King George. Somebody has to go down there and push all the locals around and cheat them out of everything they hold dear. Otherwise, it just wouldn't be any fun. Anyone know if there are extradion treaties between the U.S and Paraguay?
