Shocking Gall: Boycott Ford

"Shock and awe"--as we all know by now--is a military euphemism for firebombing, dropping anywhere from 800 to 3,000 bombs on a country in 48 hours. But now Ford Motor Company is teaming up with country singer Toby Keith (whose song "The Angry American" includes the cornball lyrics "we'll put a boot in your ass, it's the American way") to cutesify the term. Keith's new tour, which will promote Ford's new F-150, will be dubbed the "Shock 'n' Y'all" tour. Yet another reason I'm glad to drive a Subaru.
