Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys

Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys
From the mailbag:

From: Maj. Joel Leggett, USMC
Message: In the Top 10 Ways to Look Like a Total Toolbag you stated that Bad politics (conservative) was indicative of bad style. What is it about the ideology of weakness (liberalism) that makes it so stylish? Is it the promotion of total dependence on government at home or the slavish commitment to pacifism and appeasement abroad? My guess is that its combination of spinelessness and faux intellectual pretentiousness is the secret to its allure among the neuter-boy crowd.

MB Response: Sir, yes sir!

We'll let readers decide about the faux intellectual pretentiousness. They can look no further than your question. Now kindly remove that gold necklace and Oakley blades and head back to barracks.
