Normally I don’t blog on politics, although I have my favored political blog sources I keep up on sometimes. But these two snippets were just too darn funny to not link to (at least out of context, re: the recent terrorisim alert level scare tactics and being – or not being – terrorized):
FDR: Oh, I’m sorry, was wiping out our entire Pacific fleet supposed to intimidate us? We have nothing to fear but fear itself, and right now we’re coming to kick your ass with brand new destroyers riveted by waitresses. How’s that going to feel?
CHURCHILL: Yeah, you keep bombing us. We’ll be in the pub, flipping you off. I’m slapping Rolls-Royce engines into untested flying coffins to knock you out of the skies, and then I’m sending angry Welshmen to burn your country from the Rhine to the Polish border.Must be my old WW2 history reading catching up to me, but those were almost priceless comparisons of good leadership (in public appearances) of old versus the (expletives deleted) leadership of now.
