Mamma Mia!

Lawrence O'Donnell starts his show by asking why Assad would use chemical weapons.

Good Question!

Next, O'Donnell tells us to assume "for the moment" that Assad was the one who used the chemical weapons.

Sure, let's assume away the most important point in the decision to bomb Syria.

Then O'Donnell tells us that it's hard to understand why Assad would use chemical weapons "unless, unless" --wait for it--

you've read a book called The Dictator's Handbook.

He then goes on to assure us that it is a real book.

Oh, good. I was worried O'Donnell was going to try to make a case for bombing Syria based on an imaginary book.

But, hey as long as the book actually exists, O'Donnell's case is probably air tight, :sarcasm:

The O'Donnell tells us that this non-imaginary book tells us how dictators think.


Well, Grimm's Fairy Tales is a real book, too. You can touch it, read it, drop it on the floor, anything.

But it's some cute shit the Brothers Grimm or someone else made up. You don't bomb living people based on it.

Lawrence O"Donnell then went on to tell us about the silly things politicians say about the war. Good grief.
