Somedays, the stupidity is too much for me to stay silent. So:
--If I'm ever captured by the Iranian Republican Guard, I'll say whatever they want, on the expectation that my family and friends care more about my personal safety then whether or not I say mean things about my government. If I'm on a inflatable dinghy and surrounded by IRG gunboats, you better believe I'm going to surrender to them, because a pointless death really is, duh, pointless.
--As for the whole "Nancy Pelosi in Syria" thing, am I the only one who remembers Jesse Helms' undermining the foreign policy of the President before the UNSC in 2000?
