Ted Rall for December 17, 2001
Wonk came lately Man: Can you believe Bush? I told you guys his budget would die in committee! Woman 1: How about Libya? Woman 2: Hi, guys! Man: Hey, Karen. Since when do you want to hang, with us political geeks? Woman 2: Everything's different now. I was always an apathetic, apolitical person before. I always thought that anyone who knew who ran against Truman or where Mazar-e-sharif was or what the ways and means committee did was lame. But now... Woman 1: Consciousness is hip? Woman 2: Exactly. I'm hoping to achieve full sentence in time for my next evaluation.
