Lileks is an absolute MUST read today

He's screeding on France, Germany, U.N., Islam...Enter at your own risk and be prepared to duck! Here's a kick-ass excerpt re France:

I understand; they are wise and nuanced, we are young and dumb. We’re the cowboy leaning with his back against the bar, elbows on the rail, watching the door; we need our European betters to teach us how to ape the subtle forms of Nijinsky, limbs arrayed in the exquisite form of the Dying Swan. Understood. But I don’t want to be the Dying Swan. And I don’t want posture lessons from a country that spent the last 20 years flopping on its back and grabbing its ankles when Saddam showed up waving stacks of Francs in exchange for bang-sticks.

Reading the entire screed is greatly advised.

Lileks is awesome. I hit the tip jar for that one -- it had me laughing so hard the tears came to my eyes. He's a national treasure, and most of the nation doesn't know it yet.
