One comment on “Episode 439: Schrödinger’s Embassy”
Good episode, though I just don’t have many laughs in me today. Jesus Christ, it’s like the country’s mask of sanity has fallen off and we don’t even pretend to have principles anymore. I remind myself that Trump supporters are a minority, but — 40% of the U.S. is a lot of people. WTF is wrong with them? With us?
Oh — consulate, not embassy. That’s not just me being pedantic; it makes a difference in terms of security.
We don’t really need Saudi oil anymore; but we like them buying our weapons. Sometimes I kind of wish we didn’t sell tons of high-tech weapons to brutal dictatorships.
