Maybe you've heard of this letter that a bunch of diplomats (or, more likely, ex-diplomats) sent to President Bush, excoriating him for supporting Israel. Well, I was googling around, to see if I could find a complete list of the people who signed it, wondering if Ralph Earle II had signed it -- apparently not, though I wouldn't have been surprised. But in the course of googling, I came across this -- apparently the letter had been posted to some community website (Talkabout? never heard of 'em) about a week ago, soliciting diplomats to add your name to the letter! And in self-parody, practically, the post was written from an email address called "stop_the_nazis@" something-or-other. Well, Godwin's law applies before the stupid thing was even sent out!
