I Knew It Was Too Good to be True

I knew it. God f-ing damn it!!!!

Every time I get excited about the possibility of peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians, I always stop and warn myself: “Josh, it just aint gonna happen.” From the famous Clinton handshake on, no matter how good it looks for a second, it always comes crashing down.

This time, because Sharon was such an unlikely peace maker, I actually thought his third way Kadema party was crazy enough, in a Gorbachev/F.W. de Klerk kind of split from history way, that it was maybe going to happen this time.

Nope. The Middle East just comes up too often on Satan’s I-Pod. Sharon suffered a massive stroke today.
