And all this time, I thought the Onion made up the “What Do You Think” quotes.
Apparently the Onion just interviews these people and records what they actually say. No, really. And people wonder why the rest of the world thinks Americans are stupid. Some choice quotes:
“[Y]ou have to abide by the president, whatever he does.”
Only if you’re in the military, lady. But if you want to think that, be my guest. By the way, Dubya said we should all run around with our feet on our ears, so hop to it.
“I don’t really support President Bush. Yeah, I do actually, I do. I’m really not sure. I don’t really care, I guess.”
Would sticking my foot up your ass help you make up your mind? Because you’re obviously completely incapable of doing so.
“[A]ccording to the Pope, [war] wasn’t even necessary, and the Pope has a lot of advisors to tell him what’s going on.”
Right, and all those advisors really helped good ol’ Johnny decide what to do about all those pedophile priests, didn’t they? Sheesh. Some people put waaaaay too much faith in Catholic dogma.
For some rather more intelligent commentary, check out the BBC’s interactive essays on war.
