  • Hornets' Nest

       July 26, 2004

    We've got Ms. Heinz-hyphen-Kerry opining that the world is more dangerous because the US toppled a dangerous and oppressive dictatorship in Iraq, and we've got Sandy Burglar Berger saying that "We've unilaterally invaded Iraq and stirred up a hornets' nest, which has created turmoil around the world."

    OK, let's go with this hornet nest analogy. If there is a hornets' nest hanging in your shed, and the hornets fly over every so often and sting your children as they play in the backyard, what do you do about it? Do you appease the hornets by putting up nets to catch them before they get to your children? Do you tell your children that its their fault that the hornets sting them, and tell them to play elsewhere? Do you build little bubble-containment units for your guests to wear so that the hornets can't get to them?

    Or do you get yourself some bug spray and a broom and take care of the problem? Sure, when you initially tackle the problem you might get stung a few times. But isn't that better than making your children live in fear of the hornets? Isn't that better than allowing the hornets to inflict 10 times as many stings over the coming years? Isn't that better than allowing the hornets nest to grow, until it gets so big that you're unable to do anything about it, even if your pansey-ass wanted to?

    I really think that modern Democrats would take the personal bubble approach. I can hear them now....

    "Hornets have just as much a right to be in the yard as we do!"

    "Not all hornets are going to sting you. That's Hornet Profiling!"

    Democrats, what have you let these nutjobs do to your party?
