Some folks say that we shouldn't have attacked Iraq, but now that we did, we have no choice but to stay, since we can't just abandon the country and let it fall into chaos.
And they're right. We can't.
Bush went and hit a hornet's nest with a baseball bat.
Almost everyone --
the leaders of almost every major world religion,
almost all of our allies,
and millions upon millions of individuals all over the world --
told him it was a stupid thing to do.
But he decided that he knew better than everybody.
He doesn't even read the newspaper, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar seems to be the only book he's ever read, but he thought everybody else was ignorant and he knew it all.
And he went and hit the hornet's nest with the baseball bat.
And now we have no choice but to do something about this swarm of hornets.
But that because his stupidity has left us with no good options.
So why would you want keep listening to the ignorant fool that hit the hornet's nest with the baseball bat in the first place?
"My fellow Americans - I've turned things into such a filthy mess that you have no choice but to keep me in power."
And some folks actually seem to buy it.
