Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

05/06/2005: And speaking of the General...

Apparently, the folks at the Sorry, Everybody website (Americans apologizing to the world for our collective stupidity in returning George Dumbya Bush to the White House) collected many of the pictures posted to the site and turned them into a book. Quite predictably, the waste of organic chemicals who created and inflicts the Little Green Footballs website on the world was quite outraged, and claimed to perceive some sort of inherent contradiction in people opposed to The Chimpanzee in Chief succumbing to "the siren call of capitalism" and publishing a book--as if thinking that opposition to the president automatically implies that one is in some way opposed to capitalism. The mindless drones that frequent LGF, of course, took their clue from Their Demented Leader and began flooding Amazon.com with fake reviews of the book. The good news stemming from that otherwise laughable story, though, is that their actions motivated General J.C. Christian, patriot, to write his own Amazon review of the book:

Not Sorry
Gen. JC Christian, patriot (Tremonton, UT)

Unlike the authors of this book, I'm not sorry that Our Leader is still president. Thanks to him, Iraq now has better torture and rape rooms than it ever did under Saddam.

Our nickle-plated nipple electrodes never rust. They are as dependable on the ten thousandth interrogation as they were on the first. Saddam's cheap little steel electrodes were the butt of interrogator's jokes everywhere.

As for forced sodomy, the Army's M-480B "Bugger Humper" Glowstick is in a class by itself. Unlike the Six Day War era truncheons favored by Saddam's secret police, the M-480B casts a greenish glow that allows the interrogator to clearly see his or her work. It's the kind of technology that makes me proud to be American.

It's obvious that the authors didn't take the time to look into the truth about the war. One has to wonder why they hate freedom so passionately.
Priceless. The General is A National Treasure.
