Thanks to Randi Rhodes I had some insight into one of the most absurd pieces of rhetoric out there right now being used by the Iraq war apologists. That being this spew saying something along these lines. "Well it took us over a hundred years to figure out our democracy between the revolutionary war and the civil war." John McStain used it yesterday on Meet the Press.
If we read between the lines the people parroting this ridiculous thinking are actually implying that if we have to stay in Iraq for 100 years then it is worth it because it took us that long to figure the non-violence thing out!!!!
