When is a first strike not a first strike?
When it's Anticipatory Retaliation.

November 24, 2004

Well, it's almost time for that neocon/fascist holiday again


Where we opress [the] Turkey and celebrate the escape from Europe. Meanwhile the French just aren't eating Mickey Dee's french fries the way they used to. Like that's gonna change our minds about Iraq, right? Or keep Lance from winning another TdF.

It's hell, being American.

Why is it that this year... of all years... the worst Hollywood studio fare that failed miserably and justifiably in the domestic market ("Troy," "King Arthur," "The Terminal") is doing gangbuster business abroad as never before, tripling, according to the WSJ, its US grosses in the very venues where our country is supposedly excoriated. In the immortal words of Sally Fields, they love us, they really love us. Or sort of. -- Roger L. Simon

So, apparently all Mickey Dee's needs to do is create some "special sauce" that makes the stuff repugnant to Americans, and the French will think it's truffles. Any creative sauce ideas?
