"McCain Calls Middle East Pro-Democracy Movement A 'Virus'."
Remember how, when we invaded Iraq, democracy was supposed to bust out all over in the middle east -- and that was a good thing?
Well guess what: democracy is busting out all over in the middle east -- and that's a bad thing!
See, it works like this; these democracy movements have jack squat to do with Iraq, so that makes them automatically bad. Because they're gonna hate Israel. See, if democracy movements were born because of Iraq, then those movements would automatically love Israel.
Why? Just because, OK? When we bomb someone into democracy, that's like a vaccine. But when it breaks out all on its lonesome, then it's a virus.
Although, now that I think of it, I'm pretty sure that's how the British once felt about things -- say, two hundred and some years ago. (ThinkProgress, with video)

...because I'm still wiped from dealing with ALL THAT SNOW!!
Totally worth it though, am I right? (Daily What)
