And Your Point Is ... 

This is a pretty inconsiderate way to treat someone who just blogrolled me (thanks!), but I'm gonna steal this post from Billmon in its entirety:

We support the troops and you should too. It feels good to say "we support the troops," so we think you should say it a lot. It will make you feel better about the war.

"We support the troops."

Don't you feel better now? We sure do.

Some people say we should ask tough questions about the war, because it's been going on for a couple of years and a lot of our troops are still getting killed. But the bad guys haven't gone away. In fact it looks like there's more of them.

But we support the troops, so we're not going to ask tough questions. It's really annoying when people ask tough questions -- almost as bad as when people criticize us. Bloggers ask a lot of tough questions. Bloggers criticize us a lot. We don't like bloggers. They're unethical.

We don't remember why the troops are in Iraq, but we know there must be a good reason. We could look it up on the Internet, but that's hard. And we don't have much time, because of all the shark attacks. Sharks are scary, but also really cool. We like sharks.

But we definitely support the troops. Especially when they die.
