“You'll never have a quiet world till you knock the patriotism out of the human race.” —George Bernard Shaw
The tens of thousands who gathered in Baghdad recently to voice their support for Hezbollah in their fight against Israel and the United States were greeted by Condi Rice who wasn't doing anything constructive anyway.
She attempted to convince the crowd that they were merely suffering the birthpangs of becoming a new democracy and that just because they all voted and elected their choice of leaders for their government, it wasn't a democracy until the United States said it was. The Secretary of State announced that she was a qualified midwife and told Muqtada al Sadr to boil some water, tear up those pretty yellow flags and make some diapers.
Ms. Rice and her Assistant, Butterfly McQueen who was overhead saying, “Lawzy, we got to have a doctor. I don't know nothin' 'bout birthin' babies,” flew back to Crawford.
