Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," devising creative headlines each and every day! Have you ever heard anything as self-evident as "Our President Is a Moron?"
When it comes to protest marches, we at "The Gods Are Bored" generally cringe under rocks. We're of an age to have protested the Vietnam War -- and we did, in spirit. But out there with signs and slogans? Naah. The good ol' ancestors got their asses whupped in the Whiskey Rebellion, and since then the family policy has been to lay low and whine inside our own four walls.
Therefore we did not attend the September 15 march in Washington against the Iraq "war." Nor are we brave enough to hang awesome signs like the Freeway Blogger.
However, we do have a policy regarding the ousting of brutal dictators by superpower nations. It is similar to our policy on bored gods.
If we go after one brutal dictator, such as Saddam Hussein, then we ought to go after each and every brutal dictator and genocidal regime in the world, including not a few in Africa. Selecting to go after the brutal dictator who happened to be sitting on a motherlode of crude oil reeks of unfair selectivity.
But the sign says it all. I hope the Freeway Blogger doesn't mind my use of it. If he (or she) sues me, all he (or she) will get is a totaled car and a couple of kittens from the pound.
