Longtime readers of Undismayed (extinct though they are, but whatever) would remember that this blog actually sprung up as an obsessive response to 9-11 and other things political and then slowly evolved into this hodgepodge of passive reportage about the deaths of conjunto and country musicians. Or so it feels.
But this recent kerfuffle over Israel does make me want to step back and just say what the fuck? I can't think of a more mind numbing topic than the goddamn settlements. But what can the Israelis possibly be thinking? Why give Biden a swirly? Don't they know that HRC wants to take over and drive the Jews into the sea? And why can't they see clearly that it is time to fucking cut and run and stop this foolishness? Time to let the religious kooks know that Israel was founded by socialists not f'ing religious kooks. This game is over, they lost for any number of reasons, but is it really a loss to leave the fetid West Bank? Why constantly make the wrong decision? arrgh.
