I stopped at Wal-Mart today for some stuff. They're selling (now that the fighting is over) big yellow ribbons meant to be wrapped around trees and stuff like that. It reminded me of something.

The last time we went to war in/near Iraq, people were wearing yellow ribbons fairly early on, during the Desert Shield phase. There were also some people wearing white ribbons instead of yellow ones. What was the difference? If you wore yellow, you were showing support for the troops and the (clearly pending) war. If you wore white, you were showing support for the troops, but not the war they were sent to fight.

And nobody got any shit for this.

So all you people out there railing against people who oppose the war, crucifying Natalie Maines for being embarassed Shrub is a fellow Texan, or calling hypocritical or traitorous people who say they support the troops but oppose the war and the President,

all you people can ride George H. W. Bush's meat pipe.

Thank you, drive through.
