Why oh why oh why, of all the planes in the military, of all the names to give planes, would you choose to mark your arrival in various middle eastern countries by emerging from deep inside the giant belly of the Spirit of Strom Thurmond? I mean, my God, it's like this administration is just trying to be as ridiculous as possible, just throwing things in everybody's faces, as if to say "are we that stupid, or is every move carefully calculated and we are actually this mean and insensitive? Take a guess, but you know what, it doesn't matter because you can't do a damn thing about it."

An now Dick Cheney, who probably isn't thought of as exactly the least xenophobic or racially tolerant American, arrives in the memory of the man who once said this.
