Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

lol, apparently that is what he believes.

I fail to find the humour in this. This guy who has the mental capabilities of a mean small child is ruling the country.

Joerg, I certainly didn't mean that I found any humor in it either. His ignorance is beyond appalling -- it's driving an insane policy that is making the world more dangerous every day. I did find the statement illuminating, in that it shows where he (and his advisors, apparently) are really coming from.

Well, personally, I think it's both informative and hilarious.

I have no intention of taking George W. seriously, no matter how much death, suffering, and havoc he may wreak. (Or -- a better verb perhaps -- represent.)

Joerg, I certainly agree with your assessment of W.

:)@ dale's comment and especially at his use of 'represent'.

Beth, I was referring to gulnaz's "lol" comment. Sorry for the confusion!
