The American Crisis

These are the times that try men’s souls

Madam Speaker, doesn’t this business just make you want to pull your hair out?

Posted by TP on Thursday, October 18, 2007

Someone familiar with history, and we all know it wasn’t you, recalled a vague footnote from early 20th Century history about an atrocity perpetrated by an obscure group called the “Ottoman Empire” on an even more obscured group called the Armenians. You and your cohorts, many of whom are now distancing themselves from you on this matter, thought little downside in pushing this resolution at this time – other than the lives of the US troops in the area. But of course you can be forgiven; phonetically speaking Armenians (AR-ME-NI-ANS) are indistinguishable from Americans (A-ME-RI-CANS).
