Rummy's Tummy Can't Take U.S. Civil War

by Jay Allbritton
On Friday, Donald Rumsfeld, in what we can only hope is the last time we ever hear from him, said that he stopped reading books about the U.S. Civil War because "there were so many people killed and wounded, and they were all Americans." So, what's a guy to do? Rumsfeld switched to reading books about World War II.

If you don't believe this, I don't blame you.

There is, however, a video of it at Think Progress, so you can see for yourself.

I find this to be utterly fascinating. Rumsfeld doesn't have the stomach for wars that ended over a hundred years ago? He can only stomach the war with the happy ending? I hope he was just being political--saying something that makes him seem more sympathetic due to the self-professed empathy he feels for dead American soldiers.

By the way something, a judge is pondering whether or not Rummy should face a civil suit for his role in the torture of detainees held in Iraq and Afghanistan. It would be an unprecedented case.

VIDEO: Webster's Dictionary Word of the the Year award winner Stephen Colbert points out that Rumsfeld would be perfect as the head of NASA's project to put a permanant base on the moon.
