Low on my list of concerns: Guantanomo, Korans, Christine Aguilera, etc.

The prisoners at Gitmo are not people who robbed a 7-11 to get money for the baby's formula. Some of them were undoubtedly in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I understand 100 or so have been released and repatriated. Many of these have again taken up arms against us.

Let's prioritize: Here's my list of important concerns:

1 through 10: Winning the War on Terror.
2-25 Getting the bastards before they get us.

In the interests of brevity, let's skip a few hundred.

Moving down, then, we find:

2497; Touching up my roots.
2498: I need a pedicure.
2499: Deploring the state of present-day television programming.
2500: Worrying about the abuse of terrorists at Gitmo;
2551. Giving a brass farthing about the treatment of the Holy Book.

Where were the bastards when Hitler was persecuting Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals, making bonfires of books? Explaining that boys will be boys? And anyway, Hitler was the leader and we had no right to interfere?
