Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Dumbass Quote of the Day

From Christine O’Donnell during her debate with Chris Coons:

“When we were fighting the Soviets over there in Afghanistan in the 80s and 90s, we did not finish the job, so now we have a responsibility to finish the job and if you are gonna make these politically correct statements that it’s costing us too much money, you are threatening the security of our homeland.”

Uh, we didn’t fight the Soviets in Afghanistan in the 80s. Or ever. But their involvement in Afghanistan was a big part of bankrupting the Soviet Union. So when you suggest an unending involvement in a war there, you may well be threatening the security of our homeland. Thanks for playing.
