What the hell?
Let me tell you folks a story, which will make clear just how INSANE it is that this politician, would ramble in such a disjointed and chaotic
fashion, in such a somber and important meeting.
It was 2006, summer, and a hot one. Myself and my buddies rolled up to our yearly rock festival, pitched tents, and on the first day and night of
camping there were no bands. So, after scouting out all the best food places on the site, and figuring out where the best cup of tea could be
purchased, we went back to the tents for the remainder of the day. Now, I am not sure how many rock festivals you folks have been too, but they tend
to get pretty heavy, and people in all manner of strange states, can be found wandering the campsite, totally blitzed, utterly befuddled, and
incapable of normal human interaction.
With the assistance of intoxicants...like alcohol...and so on, I became lost in the campsite. I had gone away to the toilet, come back in the general
direction of our tents, but became hopelessly lost. I cast about, left and right, scanning for a familiar face, or a flag pole with a familiar
combination of band logo flags, or a pattern of familiar tent brands, using all possible methods to triangulate my position relative to the camp
circle that my friends and I had constructed.
Some hours later, I spied a friend of mine, standing less than fifteen feet from me, in the centre of what appeared to be our circle of tents,
whereupon I screamed "DUDE! THANK GOD! I have been looking for you guys EVERYWHERE!". At this, my buddy responded," Man, you have been stood behind
your own tent doing a Meerkat impression for four hours!".
Yes, I had become lost behind my own tent. I was that wasted.
But I was STILL less wasted than you would have to be, to sit in front of a military commander, as part of a congressional panel of some sort, as a
representative of all the people who got you there, and spout THAT level of total, and utter TWADDLE!
If this fellows behaviour as a congressperson, is that much LESS sensible than mine at a rock festival, WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? Even if the
inmates are running the asylum, this fool should not be given the keys to anything more important than the janitorial cupboard, and should not be
allowed a key for the corrosives locker, because God knows, the cocktails this fellow is on do not need a chaser!
