In case you missed the president*’s speech on Afghanistan, he:
1. Read (poorly) canned lines to pretend he has apologized for saying some of the Nazi torch-marchers were “very fine people”, and to try to slide away from his bigotry without apologizing;
2. Obsequiously talked about how brave our service members are, drawing attention to his five deferments and his disrespect for trans service members, simultaneously insulting the intelligence of the service members sitting right in front of him; and
3. Tried to sound tough, but changed exactly zero policies in Afghanistan.
