Fat Man

After reading Battle Groups Head For Persian Gulf by Big Gav, I posted a comment on his blog displaying my incredulity at a statement made by a WorlNutDaily author who said:
Neither the president of the United States nor the prime minister of Israel want to find out that the mullahs have nuclear weapons by seeing a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv.
I could not believe that somebody could possibly make the same rhetorical mistakes that occurred before the current Iraq war started -- something along the lines of "But we don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud / Condi Rice".

But then a day later, the author's name finally registered, Jerome Corsi, author of the anti-Kerry Swift Boat book and all around bomb-thrower (and currently the vice president of development and senior editor of U.S. Financial Marketing Group, i.e. I have no clue what he actually does). In that case, anything he says requires immediate disposal into the great bit-bucket in the sky. Like this:
But, if all else fails, we have three nuclear-armed carrier battle groups in the region that are more than capable of resolving the problem.

I suggest, given Corsi's excitement over this turn of events, that he sign up for the Slim Picken's role.

Survival kit contents check. In them you'll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days' concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Roo'shun phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella' could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

I understand that Jerome Corsi has announced that he is moving to Massachusetts to run against John Kerry when Kerry's Senate seat is up the next time. From the reactions my fellow Bay-Staters had to the Swiftboat Veterans' campaign last year, I anticipate a Corsi Senate bid to be the most humiliating experience in his entire life.

He would make a good candidate for a newly formed Liar-tarian party. He could achieve a landslide victory if all those people that supposedly "served with Kerry" back him in the race.
