Maybe it would go something like:
Advisor: President Gore, we have this memo titled "Bin Laden Determined to Attack the US," wanna read it?
Gore: Sure.

The idea that Gore would have done anything more than Clinton did is laughably pathetic.


And I'm really disappointed with Midwinter on this one. Usually his points are far more thought out that this. The idea that the President should insert himself into the 9-11 memorial process and override local concerns and viewpoints is bizarre and downright reckless.

While everyone would hope the process would go smoothly, this is a memorial that we (New Yorkers, Americans and the rest of us around the world) will be taking our grandchildren to visit.

The images from that day still haunt us and there are still children crying out for the parents they lost.
It is no wonder that jointly deciding what is proper memorial is meeting with significant delay.

Asking for leadership is not the same as asking for local concerns to be overridden.

I'm sorry I let you down, Frank777. Are you going to be ok? Do you need a hug or something?

But you're right, now that I think about it. When a president intervenes in order to get something done, it is a horrible thing.

I really enjoyed visiting the site in late 2002. It was the best dirt pit in Manhattan I saw the whole trip.

Please explain how those two things are connected. Maybe those children are crying because there's no memorial for their dead parents? Maybe those children are crying because they just wish someone, somewhere, would step in and demand that the dirt pit be sanctified.

And oh, by the way. That thing that Coulter was attacking when she called the 9/11 widows "harpies"? You just did exactly the same thing she was complaining about.

Ahh yes. The good old days. The days when Clinton knew how to enact regime change in a dictatorial nation without massive boots on the ground, constant and continuous occupation of said nation, and a dictator dead without costing us half a trillion dollars.

Ah, the glory days of Yugoslavia. You remember those days, right? When Republicans still felt it was part of their constitutional duty to criticize the president during war time.

Good times.

It's also good to see a healthy defense of Anne Coulter is still alive and well in wingnutoville.

Because, you know, Al Franken's an asshole.

I'll be fine. At least I think so.
I'm about to pop Star Trek: Nemesis in the DVD player, so I may be let down more later tonight.

And if this concerned the shutdown of the national airport system, or the life of even one person, I'd be there with you. But it's a monument. No-one's life or business is at stake.

I haven't read any of Coulter's books, though I have a friend telling me I should pick up the one you mention. Funny you should even mention that. I saw this yesterday after viewing the AI thread on the ABC controversy.

Good Stuff.

Um, Frank? Do we need to have an intervention? Friends don't let friends watch Nemesis.

Gonna have to side with Midwinter on this one, Frank.

"Nemesis" is the "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" of TNG movies.

And bear in mind that "The Final Frontier" causes your face to burst into flame.

Yes, and Final Frontier is the only one directed by Shatner himself.

I actually never got to watching it last night because some friends came over. I'll try again tonight.

I am wondering more about the special features/deleted scenes than the movie itself.

Though I'm pretty sure a few deleted scenes can't compensate for promising a Khan-like super-villain and delivering a whiny teenage-looking Picard clone.

Perhaps he was disappointed by Nemesis too.

Ouch!
