Oh, Come On!

This is an actual recent exchange with Donald Rumsfeld:

"Q: Is the country closer to a civil war?

SEC. RUMSFELD: Oh, I don’t know. You know, I thought about that last night, and just musing over the words, the phrase, and what constitutes it. If you think of our Civil War, this is really very different. If you think of civil wars in other countries, this is really quite different. There is - there is a good deal of violence in Baghdad and two or three other provinces, and yet in 14 other provinces there’s very little violence or numbers of incidents. So it’s a - it’s a highly concentrated thing. It clearly is being stimulated by people who would like to have what could be characterized as a civil war and win it, but I’m not going to be the one to decide if, when or at all."

For God's sake. I forget this guy was still around, and reading this stilted, dorm room piece of crap of a political place-holder of a position just makes me wish he would go away again. And they wonder why no one reads the news anymore. Isn't there a minefield this guy can inspect somewhere?
