America, This is Your Administration

I don’t know if I’d want to live in a country in which the defense secretary apparently has no grasp of the English language… who knows what would come out if he said “don’t press the red button”? This Yahoo story gives Rumsfeld a foot in mouth award for the following:

“Reports that say something hasn’t happened are interesting to me, because as we know, there are known unknowns; there things we know we know,” Rumsfeld told the briefing.

“We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”

Again I will renew my invitation to any Americans who are willing to seek residence in Canada as a refugee that I will try to help you out. Or, in the wise words of Monty Python, “Run away! Run away!”

  1. Have you seen the ‘Canada Switch’ video?
    Been thinking about moving there myself. It violates my “every town sucks” rule, but I think it’s possible that it only applies to smaller places within a larger, consistent set. Therefore it is possible that Canada might not suck, because it is outside the fixed set (aka the US).
