|You know, George, when it's all over and done with, I'm going to be able to stand at those pearly gates and say 'My God, I had one hell of a lot of fun'!|
|Well, that's what it's all about, isn't it old fella? The Lord gives you life and he expects you to run with it. If you're not havin a good time, you're not playin hard enough.|
|These past few weeks have been particularly spectacular.|
|We sure have made our mark in the Middle East, haven't we?|
I doubt that they'll be forgetting who we were any time soon, huh? It's chaos out there. Pure unmitigated chaos.
|I sure do love me some chaos.|
Who doesn't? Did I ever tell you, George, about the time when I was back in college, and I put a cow in the bell tower?
|That's nothin, Rummy. When I was in college, I put the bell tower in a cow.|
Hee hee hee hee. Hilarity ensued, I'm sure.
|You bet your sweet ass. That's what you get when you mix Hillary with Hannity - Hilarity.|
|Uh huh. Ha.|
|I guess what's really got me going is that crazy Israel. I mean, there they are, next to Lebanon, a country that doesn't even hate em all that much...|
|Kind of like Canada is with us.|
|The Hezbubbas in Lebanon, they hardly ever attack the Israelis, which in my book almost counts as peace.|
|And then, Israel gets two soldiers picked up... and let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say they were kidnapped...|
|...and Israel just goes batshit, and starts blowin the entire country to pieces. Kablooie! Kapow! Karamba!|
|Karamba! That's rich, George. Blowing up their entire infrastructure! Kablooie! Kapow! Karamba!|
|Doesn't sound as funny when you say it. Anyway, those Lebanese ain't gonna be able to put their country back together for a generation.|
|If then. But you know what will grow by leaps and bounds? Their hatred of Israel. That's a legacy that will live on.|
|Yeah, Israel's got themselves a long time problem now. Almost sounds like they took a page out of our playbook, doesn't it?|
|Kind of. But at least we don't have to live next door to Iraq.|
|Wah hahahahahaha. Hoo hoo hoo hoo.|
|Got you with that one.|
|Yep, you did. You surely did. Say, Rummy, do you think that if we had tried, we could have made any real difference in this mess?|
|I would say possibly. But I think we have made a difference of sorts by encouraging things, don't you? Does it bother you? I know you kind of thought of Lebanon as your one success in the Middle East...|
|Yeah... But fuck it.|
Did you say buttfuck it?
|Wah hahahaha. Damn it, Rummy, you got me again.|
