Dancing fools

I am really something
That's what you'd probably say
So smoke your little smoke
And drink your little drink
While I dance the night away!
I'm a dancing fool! - Frank Zappa

The disconnect between the over-the-top celebrations in Washington and the hideous reality of Iraq does not in any way surprise me. It's exactly what we should expect from the president and his supporters, who seem always to exist in a fantasy realm far removed from such ugly realities as war and suffering. In that realm you can start wars without having to deal with the consequences of them. You don't even have to pay for them. You can put them on a credit card.
