    Hey, Jeff, tell him about that chopper you shot down; I’m sure he’ll be impressed. Leave out the part about it being a “friendly”.

    Well, he’ll take after his father: They both write fiction.

    The improbability meter is definitely pegging in this one. :)

    Of course, most people don’t quite get the concept that intelligence communities are so incestuous that Flagg would already have Jeff’s full dossier, which would have been handed to him by whatever crony set up the interview in the first place.

    Trudeau just doesn’t understand that when the military and government keep files on people, those files DO get used. Maybe someone should explain SPN codes to him. :)

    Jeff’s picture is in the dictionary next to the definition for clueless.

    “How does Flagg know the ‘Red Rascal’ is a kid”? Probably the spelling, the grammar, and the fact that it’s on MySpace.

    We need private security in Iraq, especially since we withdrew all our troops (50.000 advisers don’t count) Maybe we can get them from Afghanistan now that they’re getting thrown out.

    Yeah, randgrithr, let’s take all the fun out of the comics by making the writer explain in great detail how he arrived at his conclusions. Loved the line you added “most people don’t quite get the concept “. Wish i could speak for the masses like that! Would SPNs add to the enjoyment of the strip? A good cartoonist (and satirist) will keep it simple, for us simple masses.

    Jeff could become the equivalent of a court jester for special ops

    The only reason we need private security in Iraq is to keep Dick Cheney’s cronies awash in champagne and caviar.

    Hey, Look, At one time the number of “contract” employees in Iraq outnumbered the armed forces by over 10,000. It was the previous administration’s way of making up for the shortage of GIs. Plus it made a lucrative means of channeling our tax dollars to their cronies.

    Maybe they need to send more “private contractors” to Afghanistan. Or do all of you libs want more heroin on our streets? Just a thought.

    You right-wing lemmings are too tiresome to read, too quick with copycat talking points to take seriously, and too ignorant to actually think Palinesque cliches might have any effect other than revulsion. This ain’t one of your political bleeep factories, so quit trying to fathom a comic strip that’s too far over your head, and quit trying to influence those of us who are WAY too smart for you. Go watch fox non-news, and beg a liberal to explain the big words to you. Jeez, what a confederacy of genuine dunces…

    Mice Prike, what are you talking about? Have you ever actually contributed to any discussion on this thread, beyond your occasional copy-and-paste comments directed towards anyone right of Chairman Mao?

    I think the diarrhea just builds up in you every couple weeks, and you let it spew in all directions like a flatulent goose impaled on a windmill.
