And in third place with negative 75,000 dollars…September 16, 2006
Back in college I used to go to down to the local tavern with Colin Powell for Quizzo night.
Our team name was “Sexual Trauma.”
Any time Colin suggested an answer, it was wrong. Very wrong. So wrong that people who didn’t even know the right answer knew it was wrong. But that never stopped him from trying to get us to write down the answers he was giving.
We learned to stop listening to Colin. Years later, everyone else in the world stopped listening to him after that UN speech where the only thing he correctly stated was his name.
So now when he comes out against redefining portions of the Geneva Convention, we all know that not only is torture okay, but we have to torture twice as hard as we were planning to. And we’ll need to make sure our kangaroo courts for trying detainees with secret evidence and testimony gained through abuses of human dignity are the kangarooniest of all time. This may mean having an actual kangaroo as the judge.
Or this could be the rumored one percent of the time when Colin Powell might have accidentally stumbled into actually being right about something?
Are you willing to take that chance? I’m not.
When Colin Powell speaks, it’s Opposite Day.
