Can someone stick their head outside and let me know if it is raining frogs or any other type of amphibian because shit is getting weird around here. In the space of 24 hours we have had Hillary saying that Bush isn’t being enough of unilateral cowboy vis a vis Iran and Chirac is threatening to nuke terror sponsoring nations.

Ladies first:

She also blasted the Bush administration for allowing European countries to lead negotiations with the hard-line regime of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“I believe that we lost critical time with … Iran because the White House chose to downplay the threats and to outsource the negotiations,” she said. “I don’t believe … in standing on the sidelines.”

Clinton accused the White House of “substituting ideology and arrogance” for “evidence-based decision-making.”

Clinton’s comments came on a day when the International Atomic Energy Agency accepted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s call for a Feb. 2 emergency meeting to address Iran’s insistence on resuming uranium enrichment, a precursor to development of atomic weapons.

I don’t even where to start on this. I mean, Bush is doing exactly what retards decry he didn’t do with Iraq and now he gets shit for it??? I swear, Bush could cure cancer next week and the libs would bitch about how AIDS victims are left out in the cold in Bush’s compassionate conservatism. Sheesh.

On to Mr. Chirac:

French President Jacques Chirac has said France would be ready to use nuclear weapons against any state which launched a terrorist attack against it. Speaking at a nuclear submarine base in north-western France, Mr Chirac said a French response “could be conventional. It could also be of another nature.” He said France’s nuclear forces had been configured for such an event.

Jacque, Jacque, put down that sabre you jingo-istic warmongerer you!

Do you see what I mean??? The French are acting tough and Bush is getting shit for being too diplomatic…I’m almost afraid to leave the house today. I’m mean, what if, like, gravity stops working or something?
