Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for February 22, 1998
Man: Mr. President, it's becoming increasingly apparent that military action against Iraq will be required. Bill Clinton: Yes...unfortunately this war won't be as easy to sell to the public. Saddam isn't raping a nation - he's violating U.N. inspection rules. Man: And if Saddam uses civilian shields for military targets... Man 2: Plus the possibility of a ground attack... Clinton: Hmm...makes for some unpleasantness on the evening news. Will America support it? Woman: We need some...fake diversion - something to take the media's attention away from what could be a very unpopular but necessary war. Man: But what? What could distract America from a grisly war? Bill: Send in an intern. A female intern. Man: Mr. President! Not that! You're a happily married man! Clinton: I know that, and you know that, but now the American people must not know it! Man: God Bless you, Sir. Wag the Tail.
