Republicans are so pro-war that almost one third of them are willing to bomb the fictional home of Aladdin.

OMG Jasmine! Is that an ICBM missile?
Courtesy of the Guardian:

A poll on Friday by Public Policy Polling perfectly encapsulates the Republican presidential race so far: “30% of Republican primary voters nationally say they support bombing Agrabah.” That would be the fictional country in Aladdin. 

Republican voters, urged on by the Republican candidates, are now eager to bomb anywhere that has a Muslim-sounding name regardless of whether it comes from a cartoon. While the poll itself may be amusing, it’s not exactly surprising given the cartoonish levels of tough-guy militarism that spews from the mouth of every Republican candidate as they try to one-up each other on who would start more wars harder and quicker.

Now before any of you Democrats starting feeling smug, you should know that a full 19% of you are ALSO willing to bomb a Disney animated country into oblivion.

However it should be noted that it is NOT the Democratic leaders who are instilling that level of fear into the voters.

It's these guys.

Which by the way is yet ANOTHER reason that we should not be terrifying Americans while at the same time encouraging all of them to buy guns and get conceal carry permits.

  1. Seems consistent with people who believe in myth.

    After droning on about "terror" (used synonymously with insurgence, rebellion, murder) the bubble headed anchor then says polls show Americans are terrified. I wonder why.

    The cartoonist nailed their personas. I especially like the fan Lindsey is holding; it says "Graham's Mortuary" on it.

    When we had the first case of Ebola followed by the nurse contracting it the GOP enacted the same hysteria declaring Obama is doing nothing.

    And there's more insanity. Palin now sees herself as a battered wife and the establishment GOP is her abuser, and the Dems are gloating about the abuse. She now says the GOP establishment needs to be given a taste of its own medicine. She seems to think she's J Lo in the movie Enough. But she won't just beat the GOP in a physical fight--she'll have her gun right there to shoot them dead:

    If you support immigration of the so-called Syrian refugees, then welcome them to your home and keep them away from mine.

  12. Actually, I'm all for it.

    Bombing cartoon countries is preferable to bombing real human being who suffer and die.

    1. I do believe bombing cartoon countries is in addition to bombing real countries, not instead of bombing real countries.

      Wouldn't it be nice if we could just sit them down in front of cartoons with some milk and cookies?
