From Al Gore's speech:

And, I believe that we are perfectly capable of staying the course in our war against Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network, while simultaneously taking those steps necessary to build an international coalition to join us in taking on Saddam Hussein in a timely fashion. If you're going after Jesse James, you ought to organize the posse first, especially if you're in the middle of a gunfight with somebody who's out after you.

And in a incomparably silly response, here's Chickenblogger Vodkapundit...

We aren't going after Jesse James, Mr. Gore. We're going after Saddam Hussein. He is a self-declared enemy of our nation, in violation of every agreement he has signed with us, and of every UN resolution mandated against him. The proper Old West analogy would be High Noon, with the US in the Gary Cooper role.

So that's the score. Because Shoeshine Boy Hussein is orders of magnitude more dangerous than Jesse James, we don't have to organize anything. All we have to do is follow a script from a fictional story, and all will be well.

I don't get his 'logic' either, but that's neoconservative chickenblogging in a nutshell.
