Where's Ernest Borgnine when you need him?

By J. Thomas Duffy

"You! Preacher! Murderer! I started to believe in your promises, that we had a chance. What chance?"

-- Det. Lt. Mike Rogo (Ernest Borgnine)


This is like The Poseidon Adventure, but only the ship stays afloat and it's the passengers who have sunk.

The Independent's Johann Harri writes about taking a National Review cruise:

The Iraq war has been an amazing success, global warming is just a myth – and as for Guantanamo Bay, it's practically a holiday camp... The annual cruise organised by the 'National Review', mouthpiece of right-wing America, is a parallel universe populated by straight-talking, gun-toting, God-fearing Republicans.

If this didn't have some stark implications on our national politics, and the direction of the country, it would be outright slapstick.

As it is, it is very, very humorous
