I just got a very polite, well-written, and genuinely friendly message about my criticisms of Bush and the war. The writer implied that my time in Hollywood had impaired my critical thinking. He also, with a wink and a shrug, said he was one of those “crazies” who supported the troops, but was also for the war.
Patton shreds the guy’s message, based on his own discussions with veterans of the war, and concludes:
And yes, being “for the troops” and “for the war” is not only crazy, it’s retarded.
Guess what? I support my grandma. But I’m also 100% behind the cancer that’s killing her. Hope that doesn’t sound “crazy”.
