QandO Fisks the Latest E-Mail Trash

Jon at QandO does a terrific job of fisking the latest e-mail blitz: George W. Bush's "resume". A sample:

We garnered the most sympathy for the U.S. after the World Trade Center attacks and less than a year later I made the U.S. the most hated country in the world, the largest failure of diplomacy in world history.

Losing sympathy was the largest diplomatic failure in world history? Gosh, I'd have thought it was, you know, the tiff that started WW1, or something.

Do tell.....what did we plan to do with that sympathy? Was there some sort of bank account in which it would have gathered interest and paid for our funeral after we'd ignored the threat for a bit longer?

And could the US possibly be the most hated, because of government controlled media propaganda like this? The United States wasn't "loved" even in the halcyon days of the Clinton administrations "please love us" foreign policy. Perhaps one should consider that our national interests are not secured by winning some sort of international popularity contest. In fact, that sort of thing can get you killed.

Read the whole thing -- and feel free to send the link to any bozo who copies you on this piece of refuse.
