John Cole finds plenty of dumb to go around in the aftermath of the Pirate story. And there is plenty of dumb to go around.
Let me back up. I followed the pirate story closely – it was pretty dramatic and scary. I’m very glad it had a happy ending. I didn’t say anything before because I had nothing to say that wasn’t cheap, partisan or stupid, but I repeat myself.
Anyway, I’m with John – great job to the professionals who brought this crisis to a close. Great job to the crew that used their training to retake their boat. Great job to all of the good guys involved.
And, since John missed them – here are a couple more stupids on the net…
The oh so manly Ace of Spades:
In a better world, their lives would now be forfeit.
And of course, the village wouldn’t be complete without its Atlanta radiohead – NB:
One regret. The head shots that killed the three pirates were simultaneous. This means that none of the Muslim goons got to see their buddy’s heads explode. Oh well … can’t have everything, I guess.
I’m sure we all have similar impulses. I’m sorry that some of us are still proud of them.
