John Francois Kerry is going to Iraq. Apparently he will visit with the troops. He will be as welcome there as the proverbial skunk a a picnic.
I wonder what his opening line will be. Any ideas to send to ole John?
OK, I will start.
“I am John Kerry and I am reporting for Latrine Duty”
And here's a sample from Lesbian Dad:
Because when people spit on me for being a lesbian, that spit hits my kids. And my kids will watch people spit on me, and they will look at those people, and remember what their faces looked like when they were spitting. My daughter will grow to be a woman one day; my son, not yet born, will grow to be a man. Chances are they will be heterosexual, and I suspect they will not for a moment tolerate a world in which that kind of hatred is tolerable, not for one post, not for one day.
