A nice answer to the what-would-prevent-warlords-from-taking-over question.
I vividly remember seeing a tv skit almost verbatim identical to this one some time in the early to mid-1970s; but the actors were Americans, the flight attendant was female, and the main POV was head-on rather than from the side. Does that ring a bell with anyone?
Among our President Incarnates various witticisms at tonights White House Correspondents dinner was this gem:
The Jonas Brothers are here; theyre out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans; but boys, dont get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think Im joking?
I think jokes about murder would be in better taste if they werent coming from an actual murderer. But hey, if Pakistani children are fair game for Obamas predator drones, why not the Jonas Brothers?
This is the same kind of moral imbecility that our previous president displayed when he mugged for cameras while pretending to search for WMDs in the Oval Office, thus making light of his fraudulent pretext for a war in which thousands of Iraqis and Americans have pointlessly died.
Well, I guess you can call that continuity of government ….
