Krazee-Eyez Killa

Last night on Screamfest Hardball, Chris Matthews got into a discussion with Philadelphia talk radio host and columnist Michael Smerconish about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
Smerconish: I mean, isn't there really some consensus that bin Laden is probably holed up on the Pakistani side of the border right now? I mean, I look at this as almost what Nixon faced with Cambodia during the Vietnam War. I'm not sure we shouldn't be going into Pakistan, Chris.

Matthews: You mean, not withstanding the opposition of the government to an intrusion, just go to war with Pakistan as well?

Smerconish: You see what we did with regard to al-Zawahiri, a couple of weeks ago when we thought we had him. We went in with a predator, we bombed and later we apologized. I think we need a little bit more of that activity.
Let me assure you, the eerie effect of hearing Smerconish advocate secret Cambodia-style incursions and bombing runs inside the borders of an allied nation is greatly enhanced when gazing into his steely, serial killer-esque eyes. It's almost enough to convince you that it really is a good idea to take unilateral military action against a key ally in the War on Terror that happens to also be a nuclear power with a largely anti-American population and a military dictator with a tenuous grip on power against whom regular assassination attempts are made.

Look into his eyes. You're getting very, very sleepy.
