I don't generally comment on politics much, mostly because most of the people who will read this are completely wrong and I don't want to upset their world views. Wait, did I say that out loud? Sorry about that. :P
Still, I found this article particularly interesting and thought I would share, as it reinforces my view that the true driving force behind most events is actually incompetence. And so, without further ado, the link. Note, in particular (or even if you completely ignore the rest), how the article ends.
And while I'm at it, in the spirit of my first paragraph, something passed along by a friend of mine that is sure to offend everyone (except, perhaps, those who have no opinions), mostly because it's true.
