Heh.

That's all I can manage nowadays. Never has my give a damn been lost this deep up a rat's ass.

Oh I'm sure Obama can try and tie this to a more recent Zimmerman if he tries.

Obama's potential gunboat diplomacy in Syria would like Wilson, following the sinking of the Lusitania, intervening in East Africa on the side of the Germans.

If Kerry doesn't get his wardec, is he going to throw his medals out of the Pentagon?

Chas:

That would have been a fascinating alt-history novel.

Yeah, but to make it halfway plausible you'd have to rename Wilson "Woodrow Obama." Wilson may have been a megalomaniacal dick, but at least in hindsight you can see what he was trying to do. Obama's foreign policy, if present at all, is mostly a blur.

Wilson, the racist, elitist, paternalistic so-and-so that he was, would likely have ended up believing that Communism was indeed the right path to the saving of humanity, as long as he and his Princeton chums were in charge.

If Woodrow Wilson had his way, Obama would be drinking from a separate fountain.
