Mr. Nail, meet Mr. Hammer

Every once in a while, a string of words is crafted so well, so elegantly, that they put the finest strand of pearls to shame. Driftglass, for example, tosses such miracles around like Rockefeller dispensed dimes to urchins. But wherever and whenever one of these prizes appears, it's special, and an event worthy of attention.

Whilst prowling around on The News Blog, I encountered such a treasure, and I share it with you here and now. The author is a poster named "marquer", and in comparing The Iraqi Adventures of Commander Codpiece to another well-known cluster-fuck, he uttered this piece of perfection:

...it's worth noting that despite its failure by every single metric of significance, and despite its enormous collateral damage and poisonous sequelae, the War On Certain Drugs continues to slowly shamble onward, an unkillable, unstoppable zombie policy."


As a front line troop (albeit an Enemy Combatant) in the War on Certain Drugs, I can tell you that this is as breathtaking an analysis as an analysis can be.

Well played, Sir, and a good shot! Step forward and be recognized!

  • Thanks for stopping by RoD!

    It sounds like another speech from one of the groupies who writes GWB's quality speeches that he stumbles through even if they were good.

  • Well put, indeed. I'd say a full 80-85% of present Washington product is the result of "zombie policy."

    We are in deep, deep trouble.

  • Hello everyone!
    I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
