Have you ever longed for a simple, elegant solution to explaining how we got where we are in Iraq and Afghanistan (and even Iran) to right wing friends with questionable acumen? Well, thanks to Mr. Peabody (and not to a history professor from UW) you now can, and in just a scant 4 minutes and 19 seconds!
With help from his boy Sherman, the intrepid Mr. Peabody takes us on a trip through the Way-Back Machine to connect a lot of the dots, and reminds us of a number of past events that aren't as discrete as we might remember. He names names, and kicks ass! I especially enjoy Sherman's deliciously ironic "primogenitor" reference.
Forward the link to all your friends. And all the neocons in your address book, too.
With thanks (and a Doh!) to twohundertseventy
