Obama Did Right by Firing McChrystal

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

You might think I am going to say that Gen. Stanley McChrystal deserved to be fired for badmouthing the President to a Rolling Stone reporter, because he undermined the chain of command, and because he was pushing his own policy and not that of the President of the United States. It all would be true.

That said, he deserved to be fired for one single act above all others:

"A general, his aides, and one reporter, stuck on a bus from Paris to Berlin, and drinking case after case of Bud Light Lime ..."
Yes, the dude drinks Bud Light Lime.

Would you follow a Bud Light Lime drinker into battle?
Should Afghan’s believe anything a Bud Light Lime drinker says?
Can you really trust the decision-making of a Bud Light Lime drinker?

The man was clearly unfit for duty. A Section 8 may be in order.

Brilliant post Bob.

It is clear that someone who chooses to drink Bud Light Lime would also be prone to making the kind of irrational decisions that McChrystal did. The link of causality is clear.

Agreed. That is just sick. A courts martial might be in order.

And so, the ancient prophecy comes forth! St. Antonius the inebriated warned of this very thing!!

“For the time will come when they will not endure soundly crafted beer; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves imitations, having itching mouths; And they shall turn away their tongues from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables, light beers and illusions.”

Monk, you are the BEST.

I want to ship you some fine Michigan beers.

I think I need a full citation for that one Monk, so we can place the quote permanently on the blog.

That was authored by my blog friend Anthony Dale Hunt, from his post "Heretics and their Beer" on Theophiliacs

But fear not. We Theophiliacs are a Voice calling in the Wilderness. Behold, the axe is at the foot of the 12 pack, and any malted beverage that does not show good fruit will be chopped down. If you drink any of these beers, Repent! For the kingdom of God is at hand!

I can post their web link, if that is ok.

and as I am up to say my morning Prayers, before I go off to do those, let me offer this one from the guys at Theopalics:

“Hear, O Theophiliac readership, The Stout, The Stout is One. You shall love the Stout your King with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and strength. You shall also love the Barleywine as yourself – Amen”
