I am so over this.

Yes, I have had “We Didn’t Start the Fire” stuck in my head since Tuesday morning when we talked about the Ayatollah. I maintain that this is a perfectly acceptable way to study the Iranian Revolution (1979, the shah was run out on January 16, Ayatollah Khomeni took over, started yelling death to the infidels, hostages on November 4, yay theocracy!)

I also know all about how we backed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan in the 1980s, pushing the Soviets out by 1989 and funding the Taliban by 1996.

Oops.

I’m going to bed.
