That's Why It Burns When Afghanistan Goes to the Bathroom

Sen. John McCain, flogging his new two-hour campaign commercial A&E biopic on Conan O'Brien last night, previewed his '08 presidential campaign slogan and offered some moving words of support to our troops overseas in one rhetorical stroke of genius: "What we've done has spread throughout the world like a disease. And it's a wonderful disease: It's called democracy."

We heard you can catch it from toilet seats, which explains a lot, when you think about it--our men and women in uniform at Gitmo were just trying to infect the Koran with a little democracy.
