    Oh, look. It turns turn out some of those Cologne attackers actually were “asylum seekers.” And from the New York Times of all things.

    I will admit that the Donks do have a good reason for their unease. After all, in order for the sound of your rattling saber to have any effect, the people at whom you’re rattling it need to at least believe that, when the time comes, you’ll be able to actually draw the thing. Which becomes a difficult sell when your head of State has spent the past seven years coddling every adversary and retreating from every slight.

    Maybe we should have Creepy Uncle Joe go over there and give Li’l Kim and the mullahs some nice neck-rubs. If that doesn’t show ’em we mean business … well, it’ll probably lead to some really awkward harassment suits.

    Actually this is Congressional Democrats worried about waking up one morning and finding their city and its constituents are gone thanks to a Nork/Iranian atomic bomb. Self preservation kicking in when patriotism doesn’t work.

  • Daniel O’Brien

    If the Nork’s nuke DC and no one in the rest of the country gives a damn, did it make a sound?

  • Wombat_socho

    I have friends and relatives in the area. I sure as fuck would give a damn, and so would a lot of other people.

  • Daniel O’Brien

    It was a rhetorical question about the Political Class, not a indictment of the otherwise good people of the area.
