Ok, I’m a loser. I’m ranting about the NYPost and I know how pointless that is. But this made me sick.

I’m behind war on Iraq. I think Saddam is a scourge upon his own people and his rule and regional stability are simply incompatible. But this is simply sickening. STEVE DUNLEAVY goes to a WWII cemetary? Why? No reason. It’s all just in the service of a riduculous “We helped out the French in WWII therefore they should support everything we do” screed.
Dunleavy reads some utterly random names off graves (no sign that he knows any of them, or they are related to anyone he mentions in his story), describes himself weeping passionately, and then says: “These names mean nothing to the French, 91 percent of whom, according to a poll, are against President Bush’s plans to make Saddam a dark mark in history.”
And, of course, he finds time through his tears to mention: “But then again, the French are against everything, including that curious American habit of showering every day.”
It’s one thing to disagree with a nation’s political stance. But this entire article is one detestable non-sequitur after another. People read this guy? People LIKE this guy?
