Interesting Query

Shakespeare's Sister scribed a brilliant post about this story: "The number of active-duty soldiers getting divorced has been rising sharply with deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq."

Shakes then lays out some simple logic: "I have a question for conservatives who support both the Iraq War and banning gay marriage. Can you produce one instance of a gay marriage actually undermining the sanctity of a heterosexual marriage, or causing the divorce of a straight couple? And if I could produce evidence that the Iraq War is detrimental to marriage, would you support a Constitutional amendment immediately requiring the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq and banning future preemptive wars the same way you support a Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage? Because I can."

You can read the rest of her post here.

And since I ranted about ECW this morning (well, actually I wrote that at about midnight last night, which is why it's a rambling pile of dog turds), I forgot to attach a Slack Song of the Day.

So here we go: Robert Randolph and the Family Band with Luther Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars playing Good Times, Bad Times from the Gothic Theatre in Denver on 12/3/03.

Wow, the Iraqi chicks must be really sexy beneath those cloaks that cover their entire faces and bodies and goodies.

It's either that or some emotional attachment to those Iraqi prisoners getting gang-banged in Abu Grahib that's causing all these fine Americans to divorce their wives.

Am I the only person who thought the prospect of banging Lynndie England in front of a naked Iraqi pyramid was hot?

for the record, i think it's generally the wives back home who are the ones doing the divorcing. but with that in mind, do you think that inspires the soldier to go on an abreu-like post-breakup tear? like catching 8 terroristas in 7 days?

That's fucking hysterical, Ethan. I think though that since Abreu is killing baseballs, the analogy is that these soldiers brutally slaughter 8 terroristas in a week.
