Well Bushies, here we are, driving the mountain pass. A semi just crossed the divider.

"Whoa! Head for the cliff!" you screamed.

"The cliff? It's a four lane highway. Take evasive action! There's plenty of room."

"No! The cliff, the cliff! It's the only way to be safe."

"Don't go over the cliff," we said. "It's a steep drop onto sharp rocks."

"Don't be a pansy," you said. "This Hummer has airbags."

"That won't be enough," we muttered, but you had the wheel, and the gas, clutch and brakes. All we could do was hang on. And maybe, if you were right, the results would be spectacular. We held our breath.

"Woohoo!" you said. "I love my Hummer!"

"Our angle of declination is passing 45 degrees," we noted.

"What? You elitist prick, speak English," you snarled.

"Passing 60...it means we're almost vertical."

"So? So?! It's...it's a good thing! This Hummer has a winch."

"The winch is on the front..."

"...yeah, which is closer to the ground. Why are you so negative?"

"...er...geez! What good is a winch?? Do you have a plan?"

"Yeah, you get out and attach it."

"At terminal velocity...to what? Oh god, we're upside down. This is nuts! Why didn't you stay on the road?"

"Oh shut up, we're committed now. The airbags will work, I'm sure of it."

"So this Hummer has roof bags?"

"...Look, I'm sick of your elitism. Why do you have to question everything? You should just be grateful you have the right to question, and then just shut up."

"Unbelieveable! You got us into this mess, and now you can't take responsibility."

"Yeah? Well I didn't hear you offer any suggestions..."


And so it continues. Years from now, when 5000 US soldiers have died and thousands more are disabled, Bushies, will still be defending their inane position.
