It’s Friday. Time for my last Friday of the month Trivia Contest:
Q. What do Bibi Netanyahu and Bill Ayers have in common?
- they were both rich white children of privilege raised in the suburbs of Chicago
- they were both on the FBI’s “10 Most Wanted” list
- they both went by the nickname “Boom Boom” as young men.
A. # 3, They both went by the nickname “Boom Boom” as young men!
William “Boom Boom” Ayers, left; Benjamin “Boom Boom” Netanyahu, right
For very different reasons and ideologies of course.
“I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough,” the professor told the New York Times in 2002.
"If not now, then when?" the Prime Minister reportedly asked of American officials last weekend, following his statement the previous week: "The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel."
Beyond the nickname, they have absolutely nothing in common. Bibi would have the world draw red lines, (which set the state run media a twitter);
Ladies and gentlemen, the relevant question is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.
While Professor Ayers would, well… he can’t really say for certain:
…So, would Mr. Ayers do it all again, he is asked? ”I don’t want to discount the possibility,” he said.
because you never know; circumstances may warrant subversive action against the government again someday. Say, if Mitt Romney somehow manages to get elected and sides with BiBi.
Now, about that red line: we all remember from our discussion the other day how aggressive and threatening red ink is:
Red ink, you see, is believed to be too aggressive, and some worry that a paper covered in red markings could have a negative impact on students' self esteem. Instead, teachers have been asked to use a "gentler" color such as purple or green
Teachers like Prof. Ayers have banned the use of red for marking things, fearing it will demoralize and deter performance in the future. Of course, I think that was the whole point of Bibi’s cartoon bomb:
Does anyone really see a problem with deterring the genocidal Islamic Extremists in Iran from annihilating Israel? I mean other than the big brained professors? And maybe Big Guy?
I sure don’t see a down side, because once you hand somebody a lit bomb, it’s really hard to get rid of it, as any fan of Batman knows.
