dollas for dinars

This image was found on several pages of this immodest bilge, next to ads for bulking up and offers to Make a Killing in Real Estate:

It's well and good to write incessantly in the service of some partis pris: you are a hack for half of a dipole? for the Raptured? the situationists? the talk show 100? the anarchists? Leninists? Knights of Malta? Have at it.

But how much more Horowitzian, Hayekian, Surowieckian to make a market in your ideology. You believe that Bush has the right idea, that Right will triumph, that Freedom on the March damn had better see the light of day or there'll be hell to pay. Now, instead of simply blogging yourself into the DTs, you shall act. Put your money where your ideological spittle is and buy a few trillion dinars. Invest in the future of Iraq, and put your kids through college (David H. will advise on where to send them) with the money wallop you'll get when your dinars turn to Gold, backed by the full Faith and Credit of the Iraqi people, who in turn are backed, or jacked, by the full Faith and Credit of the U$ian dolla.

On the other hand, if you're a stinking liberal sack of shit, then consider pumping this market action. Every Horowitzian dolla invested in dinars is one less spent on the Oedipal nighttrain, discovering yo' momma.
