Recent American politics in a nutshell

If you haven't been following American politics very closely, and wonder how the country ever got into the state that it is in now, this story from TwinCities.com may put a subhuman face on the situation. As quoted in Laura Rozen's blog War and Piece:

Gabriel Nathan Schwartz was a Colorado Delegate to the Republican National Convention. During the convention, Schwarz, 29, wasn't shy about talking to the media. ... In an interview filmed the afternoon of Sept. 3 and posted on the Web site LinkTV.org, Schwartz was candid about how he envisioned change under a McCain presidency. "Less taxes and more war," he said, smiling. He said the U.S. should "bomb the hell" out of Iran because the country threatens Israel.

Asked by the interviewer how America would pay for a military confrontation with Iran, he said the U.S. should take the country's resources. "We should plant a flag. Take the oil, take the money," he said. "We deserve reimbursement."

A few hours after giving that interview, Schwartz took a hooker back to his hotel room, where she drugged him and stole more than $120,000 in cash and jewelry.

You can see the interview with Schwartz here. Don't miss it. I mean really don't miss it.

I have to wonder how his investment portfolio is doing this week.

Perhaps more frightening than his opinions, which you could hear in any donut shop or trailer park, is the fact that this man had $120,000 in cash on him.
