Blogger Quote of the Day

In a post and comments over at Payne Hollow (a worthy visit), a blogger named Wembley made a great remark after PH's argument over us in Iraq:

PH's remarks:

And yet, I suppose it would be unpatriotic of me and show a lack of support for our troops if I suggested that we really can't afford to wage war as solution for all the "bad guys" out there? Forget the whole morality question: It just isn't feasible.

We can't solve rogue regime problems by warring. If it's stretching us thin to deal with a wiped out nation like Iraq, what would it cost to deal with a North Korea? China? And so, if that is the case, wouldn't it be wise if we looked at other solutions?

Wembley's retort:

Perhaps you should invest in a magnetic ribbon. Magnetic ribbons are the duct tape of american society.

That is to say, they look tacky and fix almost nothing.

I don't mind that you quoted me, thank you though for asking.

Was it a zing? That is not really how I intended it to sound. I just hate those freaking ribbons-- they are obnoxious and not really patriotic at all. If you happen to be catholic or at least know the stories, it is a very "don't stand out in the streets and pray for everybody to see" kind of thing. You can support our troops by sending letters or packages or (non-ribbon related) donations or hey, even prayers to them in Iraq.

Sticking a big fat ribbon on your big fat truck butt is just so "look at me look at me" it makes me ill.

You are too kind, NC. Thanks for the referral.

It was a quick retort and I'm in total agreeance - total deserving of ZING!.

As for you Dan, I love sending people your way. We tend to disagree but it seems as if we have a fun time doing it.

Anyone who uses a Screaming Homer as an icon is all right with me...

Unless he's offering stupid policy opinion!
