How could you, Mr. President?

Well, all diplomatic entreaties have failed (such as were even attempted) and North Korea tested its first nuke yesterday. On the scale of Bad Things this is right up there. 10 being the appocalypse and 1 being a Richard Simmons Evangelical Revival, I'd call this a solid 7.

While blame can only principally be laid at the (weird and irrational) feet of Kim Jong-Il, I feel that some must also be apportioned to the White House. American diplomacy and influence is the greatest in the world, and surely when it comes to nuclear containment, we have the most to lose by failure, and the most to gain with success.

So shame on you, Mr. President! May your record be forever tarnished and your legacy relegated to obscurity and ridicule. Really, Mr. Clinton, you have much to answer for.

I was being funny. I guess it was too subtle.

Or maybe too many wingnuts have been saying the same crap and meaning it. After all, the Clenis is to blame for everything.

So was I. :)

I got the joke. I just thought the quote was an appropriate punctuation point.

I'm glad you clarified this. I was...either going to post a twelve page reply, or vomit on you. I'm not sure which.

Surely you know me at least a little bit better than that?

I'm still mad at you for not using the icon I made you. This makes you a neo-con and Bush lover.

Wow. You can carry a grudge like it's got handles!

How can I earn your forgiveness?

I'm not sure. But I'm pretty sure it involves the aforementioned pineapple.

(Where aforementioned refers to, oh, eight months ago? I am, clearly, a psychotic girl.)

There was a whole thread of discussion that lots of people weighed in on, including hundreds of hits from people who didn't comment- based on your lovely (albeit snarky) icon.

I think maybe you missed out on that?

Perhaps. But promising me I was the center of attention is an acceptable way to stop being involved in Rapture and Plunder.

You may live. Or at least, you may stop being a neo-con.

(actually I've never been a neo-con, but you know...)

American diplomacy is the greatest in the world.

I don't know whether to snigger or vomit at this oxymoron.
