Ted Rall for September 25, 2001
America: standing firm! We accept that everything has changed. We're willing to get to the airport a few hours early. We're willing to wallow in cheesy patriotism. I'm a flag-wavin', America-lovin', uber-dyke. I'm united with the right wingers who hate me. We're willing to wade through police checkpoints and to let the CIA listen to our phone calls. Talk to you later. Bye. "Bye"? At least say "I love you"! We're willing to give our lives to defend our country. But there's one truth we will always know: our "president" is a twit. General Musharraf? Cool! Your coup d-etat really inspired me... Make no mistake, dude: you rock!
