Fortune Cookies

This is a pretty funny dig at neoconservative arguments, and I think it also hits on an important truth: when neocons go on and on about how serious they are, how their arguments are serious and that only other serious thinkers can appreciate them, and that realists and progressives aren't serious enough, the seriousness basically boils down to those three little words that Michael Brendan tacks on. They think of themselves as more serious because all of their solutions are militaristic. Maybe they should substitute "serious" with "grim."
