Those darn Marines
By Tom Smith

This Marine general is saying it can be fun to shoot people. Though apparently, he likes to shoot people who "slap women around." He made these remarks in San Diego. I don't see how he could say that. It is true that last Sunday I was wondering if it would be fun to wrap Frank Rich with about 20 rolls of duct tape, slap a little guidance module on his head, sling him under a F-117, and call him a Not Very Smart Bomb, but I knew as soon as I had it that that was a very wrong thought. If you did that, he would look a lot like a bomb, but it would still be wrong.
