Mood: don't ask

Frodo is going to break a promise. He will absolutely do his best to never again break the pledge that he made, but, in this instance, he is totally unable to control himself. The man who serves for seven more days as President of the United States is a lunatic.
Torture is not acceptable. Failing to immediately muster all available military resources to effect civilian rescue efforts after Hurricane Katrina was incompetent. Enacting a pre-emptive assault against a sovereign state is what the Japanese did, it is not what Americans ever do. Consciously extending Presidential authority to conflict with the Constitution of the United States is an impeachable act. Sending troops into combat with inadequate equipment, or treating their wounds in unsanitary conditions, gives the people the right to "alter or abolish" the government.
If not Chuck Todd, then why didn't Helen Thomas step forward and just push that nut case away from the podium? How did anyone remain silent when the Incomparable Moron alleged that we had "52 months of job growth" between the recessions? Couldn't anyone muster enough self-righteous anger to simply yell at the cowboy asking "If Saddam had any WMD, then why didn't he use them against our troops on the very first day of the attack, when his whole regime was about to fall around him?"
It was for these reasons that Frodo stepped forward to stand against Sauron. He felt alone on that day, and not until the Fellowship was complete could he engage in his effort to destroy the Ring. He feels much the same now; angry, despondent, that a land so blessed, so very noble, could have tolerated such a buffoon for so long.
We owe the world a Coke, and their forgiveness.
