Kevin Drum quotes Cliff May's deep thoughts about Saddam and the war:
It's easy to say that if we had left Saddam alone, nothing bad would have happened. But how is that different from what was said for years about Osama bin Laden?
Kevin points out that might be a good argument had somebody actually been saying that we should leave Bin Laden alone.
But I'm more concerned with May's statement itself. It bears a little too much resemblance in structure and cadence to Judge Smails famous speech dedicating his boat in "Caddyshack:"
It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in... and you've got the stock market beat. But the man worthwhile, Is the man who can smile... when his shorts are too tight in the seat.
Is Cliff May really Ted Knight?
