The old Asshole
The news are pushing retaliation stories about the dissent over the Iraq question. French Fries are becoming Freedom Fries. Donald Rumsfeld labels the German and French as the old Europe. The comedian in the TV behind me answeres him with: "Better living in an old Europe than being an old asshole", earning a big laughter on it. I switch the channel and the anchorwoman of the news finishes her programme about these retaliation discussion with the sentence:"I wonder when the Americans will return their Statue of Liberty to the French". I switch again...and finally watch a nice Jewish comedy movie. This whole discussion is a pity because there is no real discussion but just kindish behavior.
