At the relevant time -- call it January 2002 through sometime in 2007, when we just gave up trying to understand his motivations for anything -- one of the big questions among those of us who weren't fond of GWB was "what's the real reason he wants to invade Iraq?". Threats of violence had quickly returned Saddam to compliance with the inspection regime, the No-Fly Zone and associated surveillance kept him securely contained, a free Kurdistan was wobbling to its feet, and any Al-Qaeda connection was based upon tenuous evidence of a distant alignment (held against compelling evidence of a vicious mutual antipathy).

By then, the "Corporate Greed-Monger" narrative for Bush and his controllers had already overcome the "Religiously Obsessed Bumpkin" narrative (though both had currency, along with "Monomaniacal Hegemony Humper" and "Daddy-Obsessed Revenge Seeker"). Back then, I made, to at least some people seeing this now, this joke.

"Joke".

Ha. Ha. Ha.

Well, I suppose it's better than my other joke theory.

As I have mentioned to some of you, I co-have a foodblog. I haven't linked it yet because the co-author didn't post until tonight, but GastronoNY is now past the soft-open stage and is ready for reading.

Come by and comment, won't you?
