Insane Quote of the Day

From Peter King of New York:!/img/httpImage/image.jpg

"There's evil people in the world. Drones aren't evil, people are evil. We are a force of good and we are using those drones to carry out the policy of righteousness and goodness."

Because what is more emblematic of righteousness and goodness than raining death down indiscriminately on people at weddings and birthday parties? I guess?

 The second most insane quote of the day is also from Peter King from the same interview:

"I think we have to assume that the Russians would use drones if they could," King explained. "Just as we had to assume during the Cold War that they would use nuclear weapons. 

Did we? Did we really? Did we really have to assume that? Was it a smart idea to assume that they would use nukes? Because, I don't know if you know this, Mr. King, but they never did. Not even once. We, on the other hand have used them at least twice. So, if you're keeping score at home, that's US: 2. USSR: 0.  Which is great if we're playing soccer, but not so great if you're counting WMD's.
