Another Open Letter to Sen. McCain - Congratulations!

Senator McCain:

During my recent perusal of current events and breaking news, I happened to run across this story at CBS News, which quotes you as being worried about the occupation of Iraq, specifically:

"What I worry about is we're playing a game of whack-a-mole here," McCain said.

Let me, sir, congratulate you on your awesome powers of cogitation and deduction. After a mere three years of multiple "pacifications" of Mosul, Fallujah, Basra, Tikrit, Baghdad, and other Iraqi communities, it ha finally occurred to you that we are doing nothing more than playing "whack-a-mole" with the insurgents.

There is a phrase, sir, which persons in my tax bracket use when someone displays such an unparalleled act of cogitation - and that phrase is "No shit, Sherlock."

No shit, Sherlock.

How's the expedition to find your ass going? Perhaps if you used both hands, and a flashlight, and a map, and got someone to help you'd be able to find it.

Either you really are that stupid, or you got a good look at the polls with better than seventy percent of the people in this country against the war and figured you'd better start getting your opposition recorded before the election.

At any rate, some of us remember what you, your party, and your cake-eating buddy have gotten us into.
