Chesty Morons

That about sums up JoeK lein and Jason Zengerle, the big swinging tits of the Serious, Responsible Democrat Brigade.

Of course, it all started with JoeK strapping on the posing pouch and posing this poser:

And so a challenge to those who slagged me in their comments. Can you honestly say the following:

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds in calming down Baghdad.

That was fun.

Now let's try these -- agree or disagree?

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds in calming down Baghdad at the cost of 3,000 more American lives.

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds in calming down Baghdad at the cost of 40,000 more Iraqi lives.

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds in calming down Baghdad, even if it means redeploying troops from Afghanistan.

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds in calming down Baghdad at a cost of another $300 billion and the consequences to the U.S. economy which will result.

Start playing in the real world, JoeK. The "unserious" Democrats and lefties to whom you ascribe impure thoughts and motives are not rejecting a new Garden of Eden in order to deny Bush a victory lap, they're opposing the real-life consequences of a real war strategy. Even if you assume the Bush Administration could actually implement a strategy successfully (and why would you?) and that this strategy in particular could succeed, you can't pretend the strategy won't have substantial costs.

Now let's try this one -- agree or disagree?

Even though I disagree with this escalation, I am hoping that General Petraeus succeeds so my irrational hatred of the anti-war left is vindicated, at least in my overheated imagination.

Well, do you, punk?
