From the mouth of Shaun Groves, one of my favorite bloggers:
I don’t believe Bin Laden will ever be talked out of his vendetta against America. There’s no negotiating with crazy. But there’s no sense in poking crazy with a sharp stick over and over again either. And that’s what our politicians are doing every time they brag hyperbolistically with the world’s spotlight on them about being the greatest. It’s arrogant at best, and dangerous at worst. Immature and unproductive.
Maybe I'll get to the rest of it when I get home from my discussion group tonight.
