Hard on the heels of the centennial of Archduke Franz Ferdinand’s assassination, we have another obscure news item from the far abroad that is of little interest to the American people:
Ha ha ha ha! Silly Arabs making up silly countries. Don’t they know we have the #Waronwimmen to deal with?
I’m sure the usual experts will downplay this as mere theatrics – you know, the same people who insisted that blogs like Gates of Vienna were filled with paranoid anti-Muslim racists. Caliphate! Dream on, you right-wing kooks.
Of course, the real big news is that women might have to do something they've always had to do - buy their own birth control. Somehow in the last few months that was added to the Constitution and Declaration of Independence, if not also the Magna Carta.
Such is the state of politics in America today.
Here at the Posse, we’re going to count this as yet another sign that Doom approacheth.
