A Reply to “OpEds-The Lion and the Ox: The Winter of Our Discontent” by Gary Steven Corseri
Gary, my dear, you can turn a phrase. This was priceless: “The possibility of war with Iran is a warmonger’s wet-dream now-and the sheets are gross and soggy.”
I am shamed such talent has gone to waste, such obvious intellect has been coopted by the human need for a saviour, and the human ability to delude itself. Much like your disappointment in President Hopey-McChangey, you have not the ears to hear.
For while some of us were duped by his rhetoric, others among us reminded us that he was candidly a centrist – that he wanted increased War in Afghanistan (the right war) and that he intended to “reach across the aisle” (read reach-around) to those who sponsored his campaign. The right.
Here you are, a grown man, tapping your heels, saying, “there’s no place like home,” and clapping your hands and saying, “I do believe in faeries,” for yet another candidate whose record is clearly illiberal and equally dangerous, Ron Paul.
Yet, I believe you know in your heart of hearts, that this is so many marionettes dancing on a cave wall.
