Even Hillary's sporting a pair. The 2008 American presidential election is being fueled by pure testosterone. Each candidate, on both sides, wants to show that he/she has the biggest pair on the circuit. The Repugs seem to be the most afflicted. Shia, Sunni - what does it matter? Nuke'em all! They can't tell one Muslim from another but they sure have an appetite for killing a lot of them.
Now the Dems - the Demutantes - are jumping in after them. At the moment, Hillary's pair beats Obama's but he's fighting back. Why today he's going to be giving a speech where he says - if I was President, why I'd damn well invade Pakistan. From the Guardian:
Mr Obama said the focus on Iraq had left the US in more danger than before the September 11 2001 attacks, adding that Mr Bush had misrepresented the enemy as Iraqis fighting a civil war instead of the terrorists responsible for the attacks six years ago.
He said that, as US commander in chief, he would remove troops from Iraq and put them "on the right battlefield in Afghanistan and Pakistan", adding that he would send at least two more brigades to Afghanistan and increase non-military aid to the country by $1bn .
It would be nice if America did relocate its military from Iraq to Afghanistan, really nice. That said, to designate Pakistan as "the right battlefield" is not terribly helpful to America's best ally in its war on terror - Pervez Musharraf. He's in enough trouble right now without some Yank promising the Pakistani people to make their country America's battlefield.
At the moment, Hillary's pair is leading Obama's pair among Democrats by a 43-22% margin. The polls also show that either pair, however, is big enough to beat Republican frontrunner, Guiliani's. For the Democrats, it sounds like this election is in the bag.
