Ah, there you go
Mark Steyn puts the anti-war protests in focus after suggesting how our overseas friends viewed them.
All over the TV, the news shows reported on the ï¿½peaceï¿½ demonstrations ï¿½sweepingï¿½ America, though you couldnï¿½t help noticing the cameras always stayed in tight, no wide shots, just close- ups ï¿½ in some cases, because there were only six ï¿½peaceï¿½ lovers present; in others, to avoid showing the vast numbers of nutters.
Thus, the main planks of the anti-war platform: itï¿½s not all about oil, itï¿½s also about Hitler, the Florida recount, dying for those devious Jews, and letting me show you my pubes. The much-invoked Gandhi managed to get through a demo without whipping his loincloth off, but then he had a goal he wanted to achieve.
So I couldnï¿½t have been happier. After a weekend-long narcissistic freakshow, the pro-war numbers were bound to go up.
Hee, as Ellen Shapiro would say.
