I Think He Inhales

Fox News reports:

Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark is renewing his charge that soon after the 9/11 atrocities, the Bush administration considered going after as many as seven governments in the Middle East and Africa.

Clark says the preliminary plan -- to overturn the governments in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Iran, Somalia and Sudan -- was outlined in a Pentagon memo. Though Clark, according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, admits he has never actually seen the memo, he insists -- "You only have to listen to the gossip around Washington and to hear what the neoconservatives are saying and you will get the flavor of this."

Actually, I think you will get the flavor of General Clark's thoughts best by using the kind of really high quality bongs the glassblowers on Hyperion Avenue in Silverlake turn out - not that I've ever tried one, of course. Yet, despite his willingness to make free-form public accusations about invasion plans he says were contained in a memo he hasn't seen, General Clark, strikingly denies smoking dope!

Come, come, General Clark. Not even a little puff to settle the nerves before you talk to those nasty reporters about military matters? It's nothing to be ashamed of. Lots of people free associate and get a little paranoid when they toke up.

Who knows, maybe this will make the General more electable.
