In addition to the Halloween and Thanksgiving Day and Christmas decorations that are going up even now in retail establishments across this great land, watch The Serious Mainstream Press for the marketing run-up for war with Ira
They [the source’s institution] have “instructions” (yes, that was the word used) from the Office of the Vice-President to roll out a campaign for war with Iran in the week after Labor Day; it will be coordinated with the American Enterprise Institute, the Wall Street Journal, the Weekly Standard, Commentary, Fox, and the usual suspects. It will be heavy sustained assault on the airwaves, designed to knock public sentiment into a position from which a war can be maintained. Evidently they don’t think they’ll ever get majority support for this–they want something like 35-40 percent support, which in their book is “plenty.”
Hope they didn’t toss out the old “Mission Accomplished” banner, they need to get it ready for its photo-op with Our Manly War President, which should be taking place between New Year’s Day and January 19 (but not on Super Bowl Sunday). It shouldn’t be just before Christmas, though, because that would make the Baby Jebus cry.
As for costuming, maybe they’d better fit OMP for DragonSkin. I’m sure the nice people at Blackwater Security would be happy to oblige in exchange for a small promotional consideration.
On second thought, this would be perfect for Halloween, if it weren’t a holiday for devil-worshippers.
