A Couple of Awesome Questions

The series of tubes known as the internets can be a good place to find answers, but lately I've been struck to the quick by a couple of questions I've run across there. And if there's one thing we've learned from Socrates, it's that questions are sometimes much more important than answers. The most recent (thanks to Atrios for the reminder) comes from the latest page of Get Your War On:
Do you think we'd still use sports metaphors to talk about war if baseball games ended with civilians' blown-up body parts strewn all over the field?
The other comes from Gavin at Sadly, No!, who voiced this utterly profound question after apparently snapping while responding to yet another in a long, long chain of wingnuts, Bushbloggers, and media whores:
What is wrong with us that makes you possible?
Man. Suddenly, I have a vision of that question flashing over and over from the side of a Goodyear blimp that crisscrosses the country and circles around and around at every big pro-war, pro-Bush, pro-Fox, pro-Limbaugh, pro-Hannity, pro-O'Reilly, pro-Beck, pro-Savage Weiner, etc. event:

WHAT...IS...WRONG...WITH...US...THAT...MAKES...YOU...
**POSSIBLE?**
**POSSIBLE?**
**POSSIBLE?**

I'm guessing the airspace in Washington is too constricted for such a thing to circle the White House—but Crawford?

Or something like that.
