Kerfuffles Loves P.J. Too

I Bet You Didn't Know That Peace Kills -

"Americans hate foreign policy. Americans hate foreign policy because Americans hate foreigners. Americans hate foreigners because Americans are foreigners. We all come from foreign parts, even if we came here ten thousand years ago on a land bridge across the Bering Strait. We didn't want anything to do with those Ice Age Siberians, them with the itchy cave-bear-pelt underwear and mammoth meat on their breath. We were off to the Pacific Northwest -- great salmon fishing, blowout potluck dinners, a whole new life." ~~P.J. O'Rourke, from Wizbang's "Why I Love P.J. O'Rourke"
"I can understand why mankind hasn't given up war. During a war you get to drive tanks through the sides of buildings and shoot foreigners - two things that are usually frowned on during peacetime." -- P.J. O'Rourke
